Road Trippin’

 

Hi friends! Today starts a fun but busy week for me! But first let’s catch up.

Beach Trip Part 2

Beach Trip Part 3

Beach Trip Part 4

I will be doing quite a bit of traveling this week. I am headed out this morning on a week long road trip to visit some stores selling Running Skirts. My mom is tagging along with me to keep me company. I am hitting 13 stores in 5 days in Louisiana, Arkansas, and Oklahoma! Let’s just say there will be lots of driving! I am hoping to have free WiFi in the hotels so I can still blog about my adventures.

Fingers crossed Bobby keeps the dogs alive and doesn’t burn the house down!

wwweeee I like to play in the waves. I won’t burn the house down!

Yesterday, we went to church and lunch with our Sunday School class. bobby had a board meeting for work, and I packed up and then headed to my mom and dad’s for the night before the road trip. I wore one of the dresses I got from Ann Taylor LOFT to church. it’s so comfy!

Good news! I think my knee is getting better. It was a tiny bit stiff when I woke up this morning but I can walk normally today. I am so excited that it’s not getting worse or staying the same. Hopefully in a couple more days I can try and easy run at a hotel gym and won’t have any problems. I am really hoping this is the case, because I want to chat with yall about my half marathon training plans and hopefully get some feedback.

Some of you were asking where on my knee it hurts, so here is a picture to give you an idea. It’s right in the bend and sometimes feels behind and in front of my knee when I straighten or bend my knee and tuck it up into my chest. Where my thumb is, that is the general area of pain. It is tender to the touch if I push hard on that bone there I guess? (Is it a bone? This shows my incompetence.)

Slow Down? No Way!

 

Hello from Mississippi! I am FINALLY HOME!!! Don’t get me wrong, I love to travel, but once I am ready to go home I miss it so much. I am exhausted, happy, and overwhelmed all at the same time right now. I have so much to do I don’t know where to begin!

I have decided since so many of you are waiting to hear about the cruise, and also so many waiting to hear about running skirts and my trip to Cali, I would break it up. One day a post about Disney, the next a post about Running skirts. I think that’s fair, right? But first things first, My final leg of my journey home!

I last blogged to you from the Houston Airport. I boarded my final flight home, and was so thankful none of my flights the whole trip were delayed or too terribly turbulent. The last flight was a quick one, only about 45 minutes. I got to NOLA and headed out to find my driver….I mean my mom, who was picking me up.

I found her, and we finally made it back to their house where I promptly fell asleep and slept like a rock! I woke up this morning to this crazy girl:

This is my sisters 8 week old puppy, NOLA. My sister was gone for the morning so I helped puppy sit. Don’t let this cute face fool you, she is INSANE!

The beast does not sit still. I don’t know HOW I finally got this picture. She is quite the little biter, and she is incredibly spastic. She runs into walls, can’t walk straight, and will eat your hair, your face, your clothes, anything she can put in her mouth.

rraaawwwrrr!!!

I played with puppy, chatted with my mom and sister, and decided to head home. I drove the hour 15 minutes home, so excited to see my puppies. I had not seen them since Tuesday the 24th of MAY!!!

As soon as I opened the door they attacked me, and we just laid on the floor freaking out and snuggling for about ten minutes. I found this on the refrigerator:

How sweet is that?!? Not to mention, the house is spotless! SPOTLESS! I have the best hubby. I can’t wait to see him when he gets home from work!

Ok, I am off to unpack, organize pictures, do some vacation quotes, and maybe even nap. I am zonked! Looking forward to posting about all of my travels! No slowing down for me anytime soon! Stay tuned!

QOTD: Would you rather pack or unpack? I would rather pack, it usually means I am going somewhere fun and exciting!

Time Zone Madness

 

Hello from Houston! Can I just say I am EXHAUSTED! I had a FABULOUS time in California, but I am ready to be home with my family and out of airports, train stations, and cars. My body is so confused on what time it is, should be, etc.

This morning the sales reps enjoyed a relaxing breakfast before heading to the airport. My flight out of San Diego left at 11:20.

I had a snack while I waited to board.

It was so sad to say goodbye to all my new Running Skirts family. I know I will see them soon though! The flight was fine, a little bumpy on the descent, but I survived. Now, I am sitting in the Houston airport for my 3 hour layover before I can board a plane to NOLA.

My mom is picking me up, and I am staying at their house tonight, and then tomorrow, FINALLY, I get to go home tomorrow morning and see my puppies! (and my husband of course.) I am so ready to see my girls. 16 days is way too long. I don’t know how some people do it.

I can’t wait to get home and sleep, and then share all of my pictures not only from California and all the Running Skirts fun, but from my cruise! I know it sounds weird but I almost FORGOT I went on a cruise before all of this madness! So, please stay with me, thank you for your patience and support! I promise you lots of stories and pictures from Disney and Running Skirts!
