New Things


Two years ago, I bought some gray New Balance 992s. (Yes, they're a men's size 10 1/2, 2E. Ahhh . . .) The shoe store near my apartment was having a sale, so I got one pair of 992s and the second pair at half price.

Well, I put the second pair away, and forgot about it until this week. It was Monday night, and I thought, "I need a pick-me-up." For whatever reason, I remembered my new 992s that were stowed away in a Rubbermaid container in my closet. So I pulled them out and put them on. Brand new tennis shoes! I love them! They made me feel better immediately. I mean, I just love clean tennis shoes. When I was younger, I loved to get new Keds for school every year. I think it's the bright white of the rubber edge around the sole that makes me happy . . .

Anyway, tonight while I was walking, I started to think about other new things that I like. Well, who doesn't like new things, in general? I'm talking about new things that are especially special, though. So here's my list of favorite new things:
  • Tennis shoes
  • Crayola crayons
  • Soap
  • Notebooks and notebook paper
  • Erasers
  • Shower curtains
What about you? What new things do you especially like?


Thing I'm thankful for: late-night walks.

I like bags, apparantly. In a closet I have all the various bags and packs that I've accumulated ove the years. I'm up to four backpacks (not counting the one I bought yesterday), a messenger bag, and an industrial-strength hip bag (don't ask about that one).

You are so funny Sara. I could NEVER stow new shoes away for that long. I HAVE to wear my new stuff right away!

Speaking of new things, I like new mascara, deodorant, lotion, clothes, and tennis balls.

Sara.. I love this post for a few reasons.

1.) you and I have a lot of similar 'favorite' things!
2.) I have been working at New Balance for a few months part time and 992's are the coolest shoes. I want me a pair. :)
3.) You are just amazing.
