Shirts and Cookies

Hi guys!! How are ya this lovely Monday morning??


It’s COLD here!! Actually, it’s like 50 degrees, but it feels so beautiful outside. Fall, I lurve you so. <3

I also love….



Those are to send out to friends, but I munched one with an apple as a pre-gym snack 😉

There was a minor debate for what to do as my AM workout sesh. Yoga is kind of far and since I work a little earlier today, I couldn’t take 3 hours out of the day for yoga :/ It’s definitely a time commitment! So I think I’m going to head to the gym for a weights sesh and Latin Cardio class 🙂 It will be fun to switch things up a little.

Today, I’ll be rocking my “I blog all day” shirt, courtesy of my twinnie friends 🙂 Lori and Michelle’s sister owns a shirt company called Raw Threads, and they were so kind to bring me some shirts when we had lunch last Friday.

They also brought me some shirts for YOU 😀

The top two are breast cancer awareness shirts (the long-sleeved one has angel wings on the back!), the one on the bottom left says “Race You to the Castle” and the one on the right says “Raw” 🙂

Raw Threads recently partnered with Thriv to make the shirts out of beautiful, soft, organic fabric. (You can read my review of Thriv *here*)


All four shirts are size Medium and to *sweeten* the deal, I’ll also throw in a batch of vegan cookies of choice. Shirts and cookies are an excellent combo 🙂

    My favorite shirt is a pink shirt that says Run that I got from a race expo. It’s motivational and soft!

  2. LB on October 4, 2010 at 9:05 pm

    My new favorite shirt was on sale for 9.99 from Gap! (and I had a groupon, so I bought two!) It’s 3/4 sleeves and long enough to wear with leggings. Navy and slate will both be major staples in my fall wardrobe!

    I love my long sleeve Collegiate Rowing shirt with the oars of every collegiate team on the front and back.

    Also, have you ever posted your macaroon recipe on the site? My sister just got a dehydrator/oven and I would love to make some next time I’m there.

      sorry friend, it’s a secret 🙂

  4. Jodie on October 4, 2010 at 9:25 pm

    My fav is a faded I am a runner shirt.

    I grew up watching Transformers; not like the movies but the original old-school cartoon Transformers and I am kind of a closet comic book lover. Sooo, I’ve never really had any funky comic book shirts or anything like that. I LOOOOVE high fashion looking clothes and dressing up and I’m rarely seen in a t-shirt. So, for my birthday, my brothers bought me a ticket to go see Korn with them (Yes, I’m also a superfan of hardcore rock, but no one guesses that when they meet me) and I decided I needed something really cool to wear to the concert. Soooo, I bought a Transformers t-shirt because well I loved it and I thought it was kind of B.A. (I also bought my first pair of skinny jeans that day.) So basically, I wear my Transformers t-shirt at LEAST once per week when I go to work out. And it’s always my go-to comfy shirt when I don’t feel the greatest.

    I love my Christmas T-shirt. It has sparkly red and green letters which reads, “ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS YOU”

  7. Stephanie on October 4, 2010 at 9:40 pm

    my favorite shirt is this old swim team shirt i have from when i was younger, i think it’s close to being older than my sister (haha) but it’s sooooooo soft and comfy for lounging!!!

  9. Kait on October 4, 2010 at 9:42 pm

    My favorite T-shirts is my boyfriend’s from when he was little. It has a glow in the dark t-rex on it and is super soft!

  10. Wendy on October 4, 2010 at 9:51 pm

    My favorite shirt is one I got from VS – On the front it saids, “I love my dog” and on the back it saids, “Yours is cute too”.

  11. Gretchen on October 4, 2010 at 9:51 pm

    My favorite shirt says ‘PROUD USMC SISTER’ my little brother is stationed in Japan with the Marine Corps and he sent the shirt to me this summer. I wear it ALLLL the time! I love representin’ and it’s PINK!

  12. Casey on October 4, 2010 at 9:53 pm

    My favorite shirt is a long-sleeve, fuzzy, pull-over from a trip to Montreal…it’s so warm and cozy and now that it’s fall, I can wear it again…yeah!!!!

  13. Betsy on October 4, 2010 at 9:56 pm

    a simple baby blue v-neck tee… so comfy and reminds me of relaxing summer days outside.

  14. Lizzy on October 4, 2010 at 9:57 pm

    My favorite shirt is my super soft v-neck black t-shirt. It’s so comfy!!

  15. Natalie (The Sweets Life) on October 4, 2010 at 9:58 pm

    definitely my mom’s tshirt from high school…says varsity on it and it’s so worn in and soft. my sis and i keep stealing it from each other 🙂

  16. Shan on October 4, 2010 at 10:17 pm

    My favorite teeshirt is a lil’ pink number depicting a little piece of sushi telling a hunk of wasabi “Wassup B?”.

  17. charlotte on October 4, 2010 at 10:17 pm

    My “Believe in Boston” tee, because wearing it reminds me of the October 2004 Sox playoffs when we did the impossible!

  18. nadia on October 4, 2010 at 10:18 pm

    I’m a pharmacy student.. my favourite is “pharmacists do it OTC” with a retro-looking pharmacist on it.

  19. Yin on October 4, 2010 at 10:18 pm

    My favorite T-shirt is my college one that was given during orientation! It has my college logo on the front and the back has reasons why the school is so awesome. It’s the perfect fit and so comfortable. I love wearing it 🙂

  20. hotchick on October 4, 2010 at 10:21 pm

    My Dunder Mifflin T-shirt. “The Office” fans anyone?? The shirt is by no means form-fitting, but is comfy & funny!

  21. maris on October 4, 2010 at 10:30 pm

    My fav t shirt is actually a handme down from my mom’s college days, so needless to say, it is pretty “vintage”. But I love how soft and worn it is- plus it’s a good keepsake 🙂

  22. Emily on October 4, 2010 at 10:30 pm

    My favorite shirt is a long-sleeve tee from a college organization I was in called Strong Women Strong Girls. It was a mentoring program and I wore it every week when I visited my grade school girls, so it reminds me of them and how sweet they were! Plus, it is super comfy and black with a hot pink logo, and we all know pink is fabulous 🙂

  23. Lana Wilson on October 4, 2010 at 10:33 pm

    My favorite shirt is a Texas A&M grey t-shirt. It’s kind of fitted and goes with jeans and workout shorts and still looks good enough for me to wear to class. I’m such a college student…lol!

  24. Danielle on October 4, 2010 at 10:35 pm

    Loooove my Italy world cup tshirt from a few years ago…I’m super proud of my Italian heritage so it makes me so happy 🙂

  25. Erica on October 4, 2010 at 10:36 pm

    I’m actually wearing my favorite shirt now, haha. Its a long sleeve T-shirt that says “The Champs are Here. UCFH” and the back says “Five years and still sticking to it! 2004 – 2008.” (We also won last year, so it’s six in a row now.) Unfortunately I graduated in May, so I won’t get to be directly involved in any more championships…but I still feel so fierce in that shirt.

  26. Brandi B. on October 4, 2010 at 10:41 pm

    My favorite T is the simple, college long sleeve T-shirt that I refuse to part with (I went to Morehead State University in Kentucky)

  27. Elizabeth on October 4, 2010 at 10:48 pm

    My favorite shirt is my karate team shirt!

  28. melinda h. on October 4, 2010 at 10:53 pm

    My favorite shirt is a “celebrate nursing” race shirt I got a long time ago. For a good cause and makes me smile 🙂

  29. Therese on October 4, 2010 at 10:56 pm

    Ummm I’m 25 and I occasionally sleep in a teddy bear nightshirt that my grandma gave me in 5th grade. My husband hates it, but it’s so soft and cozy!

    I also have a PETA propaganda shirt that has a little chick on the front and says, “I am not a nugget!” Granted, I’m not a vegetarian, but I think the shirt is hilarious because I’m a nurse in the Neonatal ICU and I call my little babies ‘nuggets’ when they’re all swaddled like a burrito.

  30. Mi-An Dela Cruz on October 4, 2010 at 11:08 pm

    Tweeted earlier this morning and also commented my fave shirt…however i cannot locate it at the moment. but it’s my yoga shirt that says “Kiss My Asana”…my fave!! Om Shanti.

  31. gina g on October 4, 2010 at 11:09 pm

    my favorite tee is a t-shirt my mom got me when i was going through a really hard time and it says “best day ever”, my family is always encouraging me to be positive! i could not love them any more than I do! 🙂

  32. Kathleen on October 4, 2010 at 11:09 pm

    My favorite tee is “Sea level is for Sissies” from the BolderBoulder 10K
    Love it…soft and well worn!

  33. Lindsay J on October 4, 2010 at 11:13 pm

    My very favorite is a University of Iowa t-shirt that I bought my freshman year of college. It is so faded you can’t even read the text anymore and I graduated 8 years ago….I probably should retire it…but I just can’t. 🙂

  34. Edith on October 4, 2010 at 11:17 pm

    Any of the intimate collection shirts from Old Navy – SUPER SOFT, or a few of my VS t-shirts – also super soft. Mostly just super soft, although I like the VS ones that say stuff about recycling, haha.

  35. Kristen B on October 4, 2010 at 11:27 pm

    My favorite is plain and simple- “GOT ROPES?” in white writing on a comfy black t-shirt. I was a competitive jump roper for 13 years and wearing it brings back wonderful memories with my team!

  36. Dani on October 4, 2010 at 11:34 pm

    Well, I know the hubs would like me to say that my favorite shirt is the one he bought me that says “Ask my husband, he’s the Chief!” (I know, I totally rolled my eyes when I saw it.) (He’s a Chief in the Navy…) However, my favorite shirt is a plain, old, aqua-colored, v-neck t-shirt from Target. I think it was $8.00…but probably the best $8.00 I could spend on a tee that is so soft…and just gets softer after each wash!

  37. Mimi on October 4, 2010 at 11:46 pm

    I remember when you talked about the Thriv t-shirts a few months ago, and was really impressed. I’d love to try them out!

  38. suki @ [Super Duper Fantastic] on October 5, 2010 at 12:32 am

    my favorite t-shirt is a shirt i got from threadless of these kids standing in the snow.

  39. Jessica on October 5, 2010 at 12:50 am

    My favorite shirt is from Victoria’s Secret. It’s super soft, pink with gray stars! I love it!

  40. Denise on October 5, 2010 at 12:51 am

    My favorite T. Shirt is a super sort long sleeve Hollister Tee that I wear now that my son grew out of it!!!!!
    I love the raw shirt!
