Here's what we've been up to this week!
Splash pad with some friends:
Baby ruffly bums are so cute
okay- no experiments. But cute safety goggles were worn
I swear this is the last backpack that I'm making for the next few months. This is a new one that I made for Quinn. The last one that I started and hated... is not going to be finished. :)
Some cut offs... No sewing required with this one. But I very expertly cut them off (and crap -- I couldn't even take 2 seconds to pick that toy up off the floor??!)
I didn't get a great picture of this dress. But it was made from an old tank top of mine. I just shortened the straps and made this whole thing skinnier.
As you can see Veda is the only one I talked into a picture, and she was thrilled.
I'm not quite sure how I hurt myself this time- but my whole right side has been bugging me for a couple of weeks. I actually took TEN days off from running, which is quite a big deal for me. I went to physical therapy like I did last time. Ouch...
And I got some orthotics. Which meant my running shoes didn't fit anymore- so some running shoe shopping happened. I went with Adidas this time. I've never run in Adidas before (and frankly that brand doesn't scream "real runner' to me) but I run with a lady who swears by them, so I thought I'd give them a shot. I went with the blue pair- but I got them in bright yellow
And my leg is feeling quite a bit better, I even ran a 5k on Saturday. And this week I hope to be back at it all the way. (10 days off was really hard for me.) Plus this week I'm heading to Michigan, so I can maybe talk my dad into running with me ;)
We have played about 1,000 games of Crazy 8's -- Hendrix's new favorite game
Going away Party:
One of my dear friends moved away this week. So we had a little going away party for her. She's the cute girl standing next to me. She is just awesome (and a fun running buddy). She'll be missed!
always, every day, all day long. This girl is sweet and cute and funny. And talking a LOT lately.
