DIY love...

This post was inspired by the lovely Joanna and this post of hers.

So, the bf has recently taken up running. He ran a marathon this past summer in Seattle and he's been running all these fun 5Ks here in Chicago. In an attempt to be a supportive gf, I've made signs for him, I've made sure to attend all his races and I've brought my handy camera to capture all these important moments but for the last 5K he did this past weekend, I wanted to do something extra.

I went over to Jo-Ann fabrics and bought some iron-on-letters which cost about 5 bucks then I went across the street to Target and bought a long-sleeved crew neck for about 6 bucks. I then went home and came up with a funny little slogan for a shirt and ta-da here is my creation....{I opted for a funny slogan rather than a cheesy "I love my bf" one, he appreciated that}
{Total time it took to make...about 20 minutes}
{sexy legs getting ready to run his heart out}
{Please pardon the frumpy look,it was about 7:30 am on Sunday}

The bf loved it! I think it turned out being a lucky charm for him because he was #488 in a race of about 3500 people. Whoo!

What a sweet girlfriend you are! I'm sure he gets a big smile on his face seeing you on the sidelines when he's slogging through the miles.
