Lost in My Mind by The Head and the Heart - Alli introduced me to this bad and I am loving their first album. I'd love to see them live someday.
December was a big reading month for me as I was on vacation and then had quite a bit of downtime at the lake. I read 7 books, bringing my total for the year to 68!
Up at Butternut Lake by Mary McNear - 3 stars
That Part Was True by Deborah McKinlay - 3 stars
Neverhome by Laird Hunt - 2 stars (least favorite book of the month by far)
The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell - 4 stars
Confessions of a Paris Potty Trainer by Vicki Lesage - 4 stars
The Moon Sisters by Therese Walsh - 3 stars
The Flight of the Silvers by Daniel Price - 3 stars
I attempted to do a mile-a-day challenge in December but I didn't achieve this goal as I missed 2 days when I was in Jamaica and 3 days when I got the flu over Christmas. But I ran 70 miles which is far more miles that I have ever ran in the month of December so I am happy about that. My total mileage for 2014 was 787 which I am very happy about, especially considering that I ran very few miles in 2013 since I was unable to run April-December of that year.
My first favorite look is a dress that I wore in Jamaica. I bought this dress this summer at Banana when I had a 50% off coupon and then never got around to wearing it! It's definitely something I'll wear often next summer.

My second favorite look is a very basic black dress, but the reason I like this outfit is because I am actually wearing jewelry, which so rarely happens! I got a lot of compliments on the necklace. The positive feedback should encourage me to accessorize more but I know myself well enough to know I'm never going to be the girl who accessorizes most of her outfits... jewelry is just not my thing! But it is fun to wear once in awhile.
