my birthday + a shopping trip at SIX:02

Hello there! I’m back in action after an awesome, relaxing birthday weekend. My birthday was Saturday and I wanted to keep it really low-key so I had a big breakfast, leisurely had my coffee, and caught up on Fashion Police. My husband and I had plans to go to the mall to pick up a birthday gift for someone else, so we headed over to get our shopping done.

Our last stop? The Microsoft store to…

PICK OUT MY NEW COMPUTER!

I finally have my very own working computer!!!! I’m so excited, I basically spent the rest of my birthday playing around with it, customizing it, etc. Nerdy but oh so exciting.

And now you know what that means–more time to actually BLOG! WOOHOO!

Okay, enough of that. My husband was the best and cooked me homemade lasagna for dinner. Dessert was chocolate fudge brownie ice cream…made from scratch. Delicious! I was a happy camper. I obviously took NO pictures, whoops.

So before my actual birthday, I was up in Aventura, Florida for a meeting. Since I knew I’d be near the Aventura Mall, where SIX:02 is, I planned to get to Aventura early for a little birthday shopping first. 🙂

Since I’m a member of the #SIX:02FitCrew, I got to meet with one of the store’s personal shoppers and she helped me pick out some of the latest and greatest. I slowly went through each section, picking about a million items to try out, and then I hit up the fitting room.

Turns out, I’m a fan of Nike clothes! After trying on oodles of items, the one thing I always came back to…

was Nike. (Aside from the sneaks!)

Now, here’s my fun sneaker story. I was allowed to pick out any pair of sneakers I wanted, and I was hemming and hawing over the colors, styles, functions, etc.

So as I’m like floundering with all the options, I was actually thinking how I needed new running shoes. However, amongst the sea of Nike, Adidas, Reebok, and more, I was sure they wouldn’t have my specific sneaker, made by Brooks.

even MORE sneakers!

I told Bimini, my personal shopping guide, that I totally wished they carried Brooks, and she told me to turn around…it was right behind me!

Booyah! I picked out my color, told her my size, and I was good to go. SO HAPPY I could find my specific sneakers at SIX:02. 🙂

So all in all, I had a great pre-birthday experience. I walked away with some new gear (that I can’t wait to wear for training and teaching) and some new sneaks. Win!
