Yesterday before I flew home from DC, we went to the Holocaust Memorial Museum.
It was free like the Smithsonians but very crowded even for a Monday morning. I’d recommend going at on off-time because battling the crowds can take away a little from the powerful experience.
But it was very moving – a lot of information to read, videos to watch, and tons of pictures which were pretty graphic.
Each person received a “passport” when entering the exhibit with a real person’s information from the Holocaust. At the end you found out whether your person survived or not.
I’d definitely recommend checking out the museum if you’re in DC!
Yo yo, check it out:

**If you’ve been on the fence about compression socks and wanting to try a pair but not wanting to spend $50, check out Schwaggle’s deal right now – $25 for a pair of Pro Compression socks. That’s the cheapest I’ve seen them anywhere.
And I wear them anywhere…
Here’s the details on Saturday’s outfit:
The green shirt was from Walmart for $7, and the green knee high socks are from Target for $5. R and I picked out the same socks without even knowing it!
By the way, wearing a themed shirt was fun. Wearing a cotton shirt on a hot, humid day was not fun. By mile 2 I felt like my entire back was Saran wrapped.
The headband, necktie and necklaces are also from Target, each found in the $1 bin. Interesting factoid that I didn’t expect: the tie soaked up a ton of sweat and water. I would ring it out every couple miles so for you businessmen out there, get Dri-FIT ties.
The tie stayed on really well since it was basically choking me. The headband was a little harder and I had to readjust it a million times because of the headwinds. If you wear headgear you really need a strap under your neck. And if you wear dentist headgear, you’re just too cool to begin with.
The “running” tennis skirt was gifted to me by the tennis apparel company 10US. It worked great as a running skirt with built-in shorts and a nice lightweight material (performance nylon and spandex) that didn’t feel like it was too heavy even when sweaty.
And I liked the length – shorter but not too bootytastic short.
The logo is made with 240 Swarovski crystals… I don’t even think my engagement ring is that nice. It comes in blue, green, red, and white and the skirt itself comes in black or white.
The skirt is definitely pricey at $90, but 10US is going to give one of their fabulous sparkly creations away to one reader.
To enter the skirt giveaway tell me,
What would you bling out in Swarovski crystals?
Your cellphone, your toilet, your running shoes, your engagement ring, your bath tub?
I want to crawl inside this picture and live in it. source
The giveaway will end Friday, March 23nd. rules.
