Mt. Magazine Wedding: Part 2

Wednesday Wedding Recap  
So Wednesday was the wedding day. It was again rainy and foggy. I will say that the rain and fog were beginning to be a bit oppressive feeling, but the wedding made up for that feeling. It was beautiful. The decorations were fitting for winter including three croque en bouche as the bride's cake and a bouche noel as the groom's cake. The guest gifts were either a snowflake cookie cutter or a snowflake wine stopper (we came home with one of each of course).

I figured that the best way to do the recap of the wedding was to do it mostly as photos:

Wedding








Thursday
This morning we woke up to more fog, rain, and howling (literally) wind. We made it home around 1 pm and unloaded the car. The dogs were worn out thanks to my sister's kiddos. My dear friend Lindsey was in town and wanted to try to get together. She stopped by the house and we all headed out for a couple of drinks just to sit back, relax, and catch up. Lindsey is my friend who's husband recently passed after a year-long battle with pancreatic cancer. I say that, but only so my readers can know who I'm referring to not as something that defines her.

Our afternoon together was very special, tons of laughter, lots of remembering. Lindsey is like another sister to me. I must say, Jason was such a trooper and stuck it out listening to us gab and giggle. And trust me, we can be loud and totally obnoxious!
So the past few days have been great despite being sick, fog, rain, whatever. A dear friend married his best friend and I also got to visit with one of my dearest friends. I think the year is ending on a good note.

Plantar Fasciitis Woes & Way to Go Wednesday Shout Outs

I wanted to thank everyone again for your many congratulations on completing and getting a PR at my recent half marathon. The support and words mean so much to me.

My legs feel absolutely fine after the race. I could have run yesterday if it weren't for my left foot. So right now I'm trying to heal my left foot. I mentioned that I've been having problems with plantar fasciitis in that foot and that it was the cause of much pain during the race. Since the race, I've been unable to walk on it very well. Lots of hobbling going on.

I've been icing it and trying to keep it elevated. But, I noticed that it's started to get some bruising, not horrible, but worrisome. Not sure if it's better or worse for it to be discolored vs red and swollen. However, this could be indicitive of a tear.
But, my bigger concern with the bruising is that indication that there's been bleeding. Being on Xarelto for the blood clot means my blood doesn't clot very well these days…

PJs n Pizza Recap

What Happened Last Night?
This morning I woke up first at 6:20 when Maddie decided she wanted out of her kennel and to be downstairs. The second time was 8:09 when Heath decided he wanted out of his kennel and downstairs to eat. I won't like, I would like to (needed to) have slept another two hours. It was a little slow going after last night.

Sign of a good party would be my first tweet of the day:  I'm thinking there is a bird in the house...what the hell happened last night???

Yep, found bird poop where bird poop most definitely should not be. Still have not found said bird however.

It should go without saying that last night was a total blast. It was so fun having everyone just be relaxed and comfy in jammies. I am not known for letting loose often, but I definitely went with it last night. There was a bit (lot) of wine consumed, pizza devoured and even some dancing.












Words of Wisdom

After talking about being stressed yesterday, I thought I would take today to re-read and share some quotes that I find inspiring and energizing. I don't often post a lot of quotes, but sometimes, they really can help change your perspective or give you a new outlook on things.

Are you a quote person? I'd love to hear your favorite quote.





And I can't forget Way to Go Wednesday. Here are my shout outs for the week. Who do you want to give a shout out to?
