Top 2 Tuesdays--Splurges

It's Tuesday already which means it's Top 2 Tuesday so you guys can get to know me a little bit better! This week's topic is the top 2 things you splurge on.

I typically try to save money whether it's using coupons at the grocery store (yes, I will admit that I do) or buying cute, trendy clothes at Target, but there are a few things I like to splurge on.

1. Running/Workout Clothes

With being an Exercise Physiologist, running marathons, teaching spinning & boot camp, and working out on my own, I spend a lot of time in workout clothes. Now, I do like to buy some inexpensive tanks or tees at Target, but I'm a sucker for cute workout clothes.

My newest top from Lululemon (my only justification for shopping here is that I get a 15% discount for being a fitness instructor)

I love Nike Tempo shorts & probably own at least 10 pairs

And of course I can't run without my $125 Asics Nimbus! These are the newest Nimbus 12 that just came out

2. Vacations

I love traveling & thankfully Todd does too so we splurge a lot on trips, whether it's a big vacation or just a long weekend. I'd rather save on everyday things & enjoy a nice, relaxing vacation. In the almost 2 years we've been together, we've been to New York, Cleveland (several times), St. Thomas, Denver/Fort Collins, Houston, and Boston. I know that eventually we won't be able to go on all these great trips so we might as well take advantage of it now.

We already have many more fun trips planned for 2010!
