First of all.  Thank you all for your incredible outpouring of support re: my slightly dramatic post last night.  I can, and will do this.  I’ve been playing Dr. Google all day, and I feel kind of certain that what is wrong with my knees and lower legs can be solved by rest and ice.  I am super anxious to get to the podiatrist tomorrow.  For now, I am just planning on resting the shit out of my legs until the half, but we’ll see what he says tomorrow.

I started today out still in a funk.  There are assorted wedding stressors going on that I don’t want to talk too much about, but are, well, stressful. 

Lunch.  The aerial view.  Exactly the same as yesterday.

Lately, for lunch, I’ve felt more like munching than solid meals.  I’ll eat the cantaloupe around 11:30, then the pretzel roll around noon, then the yogurt around 12:30.  Works well for me!

I ate a bigger snack around 4 o’clock—a PowerBar Harvest bar—because I knew I wouldn’t be home until later because my dress fitting was at 6 about 45 minutes from home.  These things are good—chocolatey and coconutty and very big and filling.  Good for a light meal replacement or large snack!

Then…second dress fitting!

It was so liberating to finally try on my dress without a foot of extra material on the bottom.  I could finally walk around in it!  And sit!  Whee! 

Also, when the seamstress zipped me up, I got a “did you lose weight?” that totally made my day.

And the bustle!0331 005 We’re still not done yet—we decided to take in the top a teeny tiny bit just so my boobs are firmly locked in place.  It’s a little loose up there right now and I don’t want to be hiking them up!  I’m picking the dress up April 28th.

I came home to find a bunch of RSVPs—7 nos, 2 yes—and two packages, topped with a cat.

The creme de la creme of wedding presents!

Again, with cat interference.

Hello, lover.

For now, she is in the wedding room, but I have grand plans (biscotti!  frosting!) for post-wedding.

We also got a super cute cupcake carrier to go with it.  Wedding presents are fun!

Tim and Milhouse modeled the second package.

My uncle loves to cook and when I saw him this weekend, he was shocked he’d never gotten me this cookbook before and had it Amazoned to me immediately..  It’s actually a super fancy cooking textbook!  I can’t wait to take a closer look.

All in all, today started out pretty bad, but got better.  If I have to sit on my ass for two weeks to run this damn half marathon, I will. 

Back tomorrow with a podiatrist report!  Cross your fingers!

  1. Oooo boy, good luck at the doctor!!! I hope it goes well.

    Yay for the “did you lose weight?” I’m hoping to not get, “did you gain weight” haha

  2. I’m glad you’re feeling better today. Presents have an uncanny knack for lifting your spirits.
    I hope your visit with the podiatrist is helpful tomorrow. It’s kind of frustrating that those who WANT to run/exercise are stuck dealing with injuries/ problems when the common couch potato sits there all injury free.
    I have an artisan kitchen aid mixer and I LOVE it. Even though I had to buy if for myself, it was worth every penny!

  3. Yay for the kitchenaid! And that’s such a pretty dress:)

  4. I’ve been following your blog for a while now and you are really inspiring. Definately just give yourself some time to heal and you’ll do amazing at your 1/2. I just recently started training for a 1/2 as well…. my first race ever! The main reason I wanted to comment was to tell you that you look amazing in your dress! My wedding dress was a pronovias as well… amazing dresses!!

  5. Sounds like a fun day. Wedding presents are great. And your dress is gorgeous!

  6. We just got our KitchenAid last week too! I cannot wait to break it out and use it! BTW – your dress is GORGEOUS!!! Too bad I’m not as little as you, or I’d try to coax you into “renting” it to me for my June wedding. Good luck tomorrow at the dr. Sending you good vibes!

  7. Congrats on the compliment! And the dress is beautiful!

  8. Wow what an absolutely gorgeous dress! I love, love, love my Kitchen Aid mixer. I really want to get some of the front attachments for it. I’ve had it for 10 years now and it’s a beast. It looks the same way it did the day I got it. Those things are def. made to last.

  9. oh wow your seamstress finished your dress really fast! it looks amazing, of course!

    Glad you are feeling better today. And I totally get where you are coming from with wedding stress. I have more than my fair share right now.

  10. you look amazing in your dress! such a tiny waist! good luck at the foot doctor. i’ve often wondered if i would benefit from an orthotic. i’d rather get it early and avoid serious issues…

  11. I am so hoping that one of those comes in the mail for me!
