Good morning. Thank you all so much for your insight into my many different outfits! Although I ultimately liked all of the outfits, I ended up picking the #1 & 2, pinkish purple shirt and I wore it with BOTH the jean capris and the white capris since everyone was pretty divided on which looked better. I brought both the black dress (the last one) and the blue one (the second to last one) but I ended up only wearing the black dress because I was pretty sick of changing! I am looking forward to wearing the two blue dresses to upcoming summer events because I love them both. I also brought my red sox shirt for a couple of pictures since we want our engagement party to have a red sox theme to it :) It was a lot of fun taking all the pictures but it was so exhausting!!! I don't think I could ever be a model (haha, of course there are a lot of other reasons I couldn't be a model as well!). I will definitely post the pictures for all to see once I have them :)
In other wonderful news, my knee is REALLY starting to feel better. Yayyyyy!!!! I have been doing my PT exercises and stretches like a crazy person and I can feel my legs getting a lot stronger (one good thing to come out of this). However, it has definitely taken doing NOTHING to get my knee to this point. I haven't run in 4 weeks, swam in over a week and biked since last Saturday. Since Saturday all I have been doing is push up/sit up challenge, PT exercises and stretches- that is all. I got up this morning to do to the YMCA to swim. I drove all the way there (it's about 20 minutes away), paid my $5 (you still have to pay if you are a member of a Boston YMCA- boo), and then come to discover the pool is closed until Sunday!!! I tried not to be too mad about it, since it's probably a sign that I should continue to rest and let my knee have a serious break. HOWEVER, if you are going to close a pool at the YMCA, at the very least put it up on your website. I checked the website last night for lap swimming hours and there was nothing at all about the pool being closed. I'm fine with not swimming today, but I would've prefered not to drive 40 minutes for no reason. I did pick Eric up an iced coffee on the way home, so I guess it wasn't all wasted- but seriously. And fortunately they did give me my $5 back.
Today we are driving home from the Cape to pick up Ash from the airport. You may remember (if you are a frequent reader) that Ash is my 4 year roommate from college, and she came to visit a few weeks ago. Normally I don't get visits from her this much because she lives in Chicago but she has had wedding fesitivities in Boston so I benefit. This weekend we are driving down to New York City together for Katie's Bachelorette Party!!!!!! I am the maid of honor in Katie's August wedding and we have been planning this bachelorette party for a long time so I think it's going to be a ton of fun. I have never actually been to a bachelorette party (I know the wedding crazyness really hit me all at once) but I can already tell I am going to like them a lot better than bridal showers, ha ha. Ash is staying with me until Tuesday and my summer job starts bright and early on Monday morning (in fact, I honestly don't know exactly what time it starts- I should probably figure that out huh?). Therefore, my posts might be a little few and far between for the next few days. But I will have lots to report when I return and hopefully I'll be back in the bike & swim grove with no knee pain by then :)
Oh, and one more thing. Part of starting my summer schedule next week means that on Monday and Wednesdays (and a few Tuesdays) I will be going from one job that ends at 12:30 to another that begins at 1:00. It takes 20 minutes to drive between the two, and about five to walk to my car at job #1. Therefore, I will have to eat lunch on the go, literally- in the car. So, I am on the search for any lunch ideas you have that I can eat in the car. My only idea so far is to bake a batch of healthy muffins and eat one of those maybe with some Cheerios or pretzels. Any other ideas or healthy muffin recipes?
