A quick Thanksgiving recap plus a round-up of Black Friday deals and promo codes and the sales I’m most excited about at Nordstrom, Beautycounter, J.Crew, J.Crew Factory and Baublebar.
Thanksgiving + Running
Hey friends! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I started my Thanksgiving morning with a solo run and had such an amazing run. I’ve been running so well in Utah this week, despite the altitude, and it makes me so happy. I did 8.5 miles yesterday, averaging an over 7:30 pace, including 6 miles at tempo pace, 7:00-7:10 minute miles. It felt so effortless. (Pausing to take a few pictures probably helped with the effortless feeling – nice breaks. :))
Today is my last full day in Utah before I head to San Francisco for work. It’s been so, so nice to be home. This is the lane to my parents house and I was overwhelmed with gratitude yesterday when I came back from my run, just taking in the view. There’s a lot of us and it’s definitely chaotic, but we are all close and we all get along, and I’ve learned as an adult that it’s pretty rare to have that dynamic in a family.
New Black Coat
I think my mom and I are going to hit the outlets today; I don’t have anything specific I’m looking for with the Black Friday sales, but man, there are some good deals happening (more on that below)! We hit Nordstrom Rack earlier this week and I got a new pair of gray jeans (similar to these) and a new black coat. I told you guys a few weeks ago I’ve been looking for a midweight coat and I finally found the PERFECT one. It’s warm, but not too heavy or long, and it can definitely be layered over sweater for more warmth. Plus, I love the belt. I’m obsessed!
I got a soft-shell one that I can’t find online at Nordstrom or Nordstrom Rack, but it looks like Zappos is selling it! Nordstrom does have an identical one that is a wool-blend material, so if you like the style and want a heavier coat, the wool one is on mega sale right now at Nordstrom! But only for a couple days so snag it soon!
I rounded up the Black Friday sales for the places I shop the most. I’m most excited about the Beautycounter, Baublebar, J.Crew and J.Crew Factory deals. Nordstrom also has some awesome deals happening, including some cute workout gear. Williams & Sonoma has my favorite holiday candle on sale too, so I’ll stock up on a few of those. (They make great hostess gifts!) And…Backcountry has the Garmin 235 that I’ve wanted for over a year on crazy sale…so I’m trying to justify an upgrade!
I’ll probably do a little shopping while I finish my coffee and eat breakfast. 🙂 Hope you have a great day!
