Welcome back to another Marvelous in My Monday hosted by the lovely Healthy Diva Eats.
Marvelous is – It’s DECEMBER!!! We have just 22 days until the Fat Guy in Red shows up and Henry the Elf has yet to make his appearance in our home but I have a feeling he will be here when we get home from gymnastic tonight.
Marvelous is – This link I followed into the Internet Rabbit Hole. This guy acted out what most of us would think about doing but would never actually do! I may not agree with his choice of words for some of the notes but reading through the Tweets had me Laughing Out Loud!
Marvelous is – Spending Saturday with Little just hanging out in our jammies. The weather was damp and miserable, Mister was off working on the farm for the day and there was no place we needed to be … perfect day for snuggling up under a blanket on the couch and watching Elf (again) for the afternoon.
Marvelous is – Christmas shopping Sunday afternoon. I popped into Atmosphere and dropped a few pennies. They were having a Black Friday sale for the weekend and I was able to save some $$$ on gifts for the family! Samantha was our fantabulous sales person and when I got home I just had to give here a Twitter ShoutOut.
Shoutout to Samantha @AtmoKingston.Thnx for the great service today.I took my Merrell Barefoots for a 5k treadmill spin,they were wonderful!

Shortly after I sent out that Tweet I received this message …
@hurryupnwait Great to hear the new barefoot shoes are working out for you. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on your shopping experience

Colour me IMPRESSED, a business that not only reads the Tweets sent out to them but REPLIES to them too. I Tweet to Starbucks all the time and have yet to hear anything from them. Well done Atmosphere, your staff are attentive, knowledgeable and so kind. I will be back soon!
Marvelous is – New kicks for running. The above mentioned Atmosphere had a BOGO sale going on for their footwear so I wandered over. I tried on a few minimalist shoes and settled on Merrell’s Barefoot. I took them for a 5k spin on the treadmill once I was at home and immediately noticed a difference. I’ll be writing a review on them after I have spent some time in them however I am enjoying them so far.
Marvelous is –Mister getting on the Barefoot bandwagon with a pair of Vibram Five Fingers. I tried a pair of these on as well but couldn’t get past the weird feeling they gave my toes. Mister on the otherhand spent all night walking around in them saying phrases like “Where have you been my whole life?” “I can’t believe I didn’t start wearing them sooner.” “They’re like a hug for my feet!”.
Marvelous is – Doubling my unique visitor stats to 1438 for the month of November. Thank you all for stopping by my little corner of the www! You made this gal Oh So Happy.
Tell me three Marvelous things you did this weekend.
Have you tried minimalist shoes? Thoughts … like them? … Hate them?
