I still think I should be okay for the race. Last weekend I did 10 miles - I am so proud of myself! I can't believe I actually went that far. And I did it much faster than I was expecting. A whole thirty minutes faster!
Fortunately I am recovering well from the surgery and the walking tomorrow will be good for me. Other than that I am planning to relax, drink tea, read, and put my feet up the rest of weekend.
This is what I'm currently reading.
Anyone else read it? Seen the movie? I have the movie recorded on my DVR but I don't want to watch it until I've finished the book. I actually love the book, so far. I like the author's writing style and it is a very intriguing story. I can't wait to see how similar, or different, the movie is. I'm sure there will be a lot of things left out of the movie because the book is actually quite long and a lot of things happen. I'm only a quarter of the way through it but I'm definitely enjoying it.
So I plan to get a little further in my book this weekend. :)

Just wanted to let you all know that everything went really well yesterday. The doctor did a great and job and was successful and I also handled the anesthesia pretty well (no sickness this time!).
Today I feel great, but I just have to take it easy for a bit and no exercise for a week (boo!).
I'm so happy it went so great!

Yes, I am having surgery this afternoon - shouldn't be too big of a deal but for those of you who believe in God and prayer would you mind just saying a quick little prayer? Thanks a million!
I'll probably be pretty out of it tonight because I usually don't do too well with anesthesia but I'll try and do a quick update tomorrow. :)

"It's only embarrassing if you care what other people think."
If you think about that for a second you quickly realize just how true that is. 'Embarrass' is defined as: to cause shame to; make uncomfortably self-conscious. I guess no one can make you feel self-conscious if you don't care about their opinion, right?
So I'm going to add to my question... What was your most embarrassing moment, and describe a time when you would have normally been embarrassed but you weren't? (And why weren't you??)

Oh, and those are Reeses Pieces on top. ;)
And it's so fun to think of the story that must be related to whatever it is you're looking at. Who it once belonged to, how much they must have treasured it. Or maybe it was a wedding gift they couldn't stand and were glad to finally be rid of. :) Whatever the case, there are much more interesting and unusual things you can find compared to a regular store that has all brand new stuff.
Don't get me wrong, brand new has it's place. But I also don't like having a bunch of things that everyone else has. It makes me think of that Friends episode where Phoebe declares how much she hates Pottery Barn because so many people shop there and all of their houses look the same. Not to knock Pottery Barn or their stuff (I actually like a lot of it), but I think I like Phoebe's way of thinking.
So needless to say, when I went antiquing last weekend I had a lot of fun looking through the stores. Once of them had a lot of beautiful china pieces. Since I am now collecting tea cups I just fell in love with this one and had to have it.
I was so excited with my purchase I came right home, washed it, and used it. :) You should try it sometime... you never know what you might find!

Before everyone arrived I tried on a bunch of stuff and just fell in love with two pairs of jeans. I was only planning on buying one pair but when the hubby said to go for it I ended up buying both. ;)
The first is a classy, more dressy trouser style by Paige Premium Denim that I wasn't too sure about when I pulled them off the rack, but when I put them on they not only fit perfectly, the denim was so soft I could do all of my workout stretches in them as if I was in althetic pants. And they look great! Especially with a cute cap-sleeved blouse tucked in.
Yes, I was hesitant on the high-rise, too, which honestly doesn't look right on everyone, but I just love them. Oh, and the legs on mine are a bit wider and more trouser-like (I couldn't find the exact photo on their website).

Wear your “good” perfume any day you feel like it. Burn your pretty candles because you want to, you can always buy more. Get dressed up any time you please, even if no one else is. Use your good plates and crystal stemware. Wear your sexy lingerie. Open that $100 bottle of wine. Use the sparkly new eye-shadow you’ve been saving for a party. Have the girls over just because it’s Friday. Drink champagne!
Any day is special if you make it so!

The house is cleaned and ready to go, now all I have to do is chill the champagne! Oh, and figure out what I'm going to wear, of course. Actually, I just need to figure out my top half. Once my friend arrives with all of the clothes for her business I'm going to try on a bunch of jeans and the ones I decide to buy I'll wear tonight as a sort of walking advertisement. I'm super excited!
And I'm such a bone-head that when I planned this I didn't even realize I scheduled it for Good Friday. Guess that means I won't be going to Good Friday service this year. Oh well, I much prefer Easter morning service, anyway. :)

P.S. I don't really know what's up with that picture - they just kind of looked like dawdlers to me. :)

So do something, be someone! Many are big talkers saying they are going to do this or they're going to do that. Who you are is your choice, based on what you do and how you do it. And I think this quote is referring not just to the reputation of your character but also the reputation of your work.
So what does your reputation say about you? Does it say what you want it to say? Can you change it if it's not what you want???

At any rate, here are some pictures from the day:
I'm super excited because tomorrow my husband and I are going on a "Passport Weekend" wine tasting tour. A bunch of wineries in our area are participating and you pay one fee, get a glass and wristband, and then you get to go to all the wineries that are doing this. Normally wine tasting around here is free so, why pay for this weekend? Well for starters, each place is serving FOOD! All different kinds of yummy foods that I can't wait to try! You also get special discounts, tasting of their special reserve wines, etc. I don't care as much about that stuff as I do the food.
Our plan is to get to the first winery by 12:00, 12:30 so we can have "lunch", of course eat at every other place we go to in the afternoon, and then at our last stop, around 5:00, we'll have "dinner". So we're basically planning to eat, drink, and be merry all day long. Sounds great to me!!
