Danced to the sun gods

So I decided to dance to the Sun Gods after ANOTHER cold and rainy track meet on Saturday. I know I live in Portland. I know I have grown up in Oregon all my life. I know I am supposed to embrace the rain and I do, most of the time - but I am just tired of it now. I am ready for funshine and warmer weather and not having to pack my rain jacket whenever I leave the house. 

Good news is the Sun Gods listened to me and they are saying it will be a lovely 73 degrees at some point today. Granted it will probably rain tomorrow. But. Whatever - I am living it up today and even wore a skirt. Sorry not sorry to those I blind with my white legs today. 

In other news, I turned down cookies not once, but twice this weekend. Give me a gold star, damnit. This whole cutting out processed sugar and the icky carbies has not been nearly as hard as I thought it would be. Granted I am cheating a tiny bit and still having green fruit smoothies in the morning, but eh, playas gone play. 

Here is the only photo I took all weekend - post rain and mud at the track meet. Hashtag over it.

Go you for turning down cookies TWICE! That is some serious willpower!

If I lived somewhere like you where it rains A LOT...I would totally invest in lots of Hunter rain boots. Like in ever color! And super fun umbrellas. Yeah.

Hang in there! Hopefully it's thunderstorming a bit here and there, in the midst of all the down pour. Nothing better than a late-Spring thunderstorm. :)

How I wish the rain had been around on Saturday as opposed to the sun. I am literally hurting in my office right now with this burn. And everyone walking in is saying something!!

I'm in awe that you make it through so much rain, I'm glad you were rewarded with a sunny 73 today!

Kathy @ Vodka and Soda said...

can you pray to those Sun Gods....it may be a little advance warning but Feb 20th, 2015? hahahhaaha. Good for you girl saying no to those cookies. Getting sugar out of your life is hard for the first 2 weeks but then when it's out of your system it is easier to say no :-)

Oh gosh I'm not even sure I'm prepared for the sight of my pastey legs! Good on ya for the skirt wearing!
