Oops, I did it again...

I can't say that I am enjoying writing this, but I know it is something I need to do for myself. Talking through the frustration tends to help. And so that is what I will do...

Two months ago, almost to the day, Husband and I attended a fabulous wedding up in Kennebunkport. Anyone who knows us knows that this place is more than special to us - We honeymooned there and continue to make time to get up there every summer as a tradition. It didn't really look like we were going to get up there this summer due to our schedules so we were more than excited to make it happen!


Our first day up there was a wonderful time at the beach with Husband and my parents. It was wonderful to be able to just sit, relax and take in the scenery. Can I go back now?


Anywho... The next day was the wedding and it was an absolutely wonderful day. Great food, great people and great dancing.


... ah the dancing. Well, Husband and I danced a couple of songs and had a blast before heading off to chat with some awesome people we hadn't seen in years.

Okay, fast forward to the next morning... I woke up and and got out of bed but something just didn't feel right. My hip was really painful... now we all know that I had hip problems in the past, but I thought we were home free. Oh, and this time it was my "good" hip. Yeah, you heard right, my "good" hip.

So let's fast forward again... weeks went by and pain would get better, but never quite go away. It would come and go, get worse and get better. So when I went for 2 year check up on my right hip (ironic, huh!), I told the doc what was going on and he suggested and MRI just to check on things. 

So after weeks of telling myself that everything was okay, I finally gave in and had it checked. And one week later I was told I have a torn labrum... yup, again!

And today I received the date for my surgery - October 21st. So I have 33 days. 

33 days to get ready for a long recovery. 33 days to get in the best shape of my life before I have to sit on my butt for 4 weeks. 33 days to get on my bike as much as possible.

At least this time I know what to expect... I know what I need to do to recover... I know there is a light at the end of the tunnel... I know I can do this. 

Does that make it any easier? No, but I know it's what I need to do and it's going to happen. 

So thanks for bearing with me on this... more to come!

It's July?

Let's just say it... I've failed you. It's okay... you can say it. I know I have.

Where have I been?


There's been a lot of cooking and eating.... but it's no excuse.


I'm sorry...


I know these pictures don't exactly make up for it



But I'm trying




We'll talk soon... I promise - And I'll let you know what I have been cooking.

Until then!

We made it!

We made it to California... And as we have been up since 4am EDT, we are beginning to run on fumes. But at least we are here!

We spent some time about town... And Husband was put right to work :-)


... While I took a selfie


 And today was our first visit to Point Richmond.... Turned out to be beautiful day in the mid-60's, which given the recent temps in NY, felt like the Caribbean. 


Honestly, it's just been a great feeling to get out of NYC and take a break for today... a fabulous start to the weekend!




I was so excited that I broke out the leopard - if you know me, you know I don't do that often!


To make things even better, we got to meet the new member of the family Loki... 

 

Look at that face. How could you not fall in love immediately?!?!

Btw, I'm super happy it's only Friday, if you can't tell. Looking forward to seeing what the rest of the trip brings!  

Until then!

Life Happens

Sometimes... Life just gets in the way and you need a minute to breath and get through it. Not in a bad way, but it's just necessary to 'be' for a while.

For me, that moment has been a year.

And now I'm back, but not ready to be tied down to one thing. Sometimes, you may see pics of my week... other times it may be a shopping experience, a new workout or even a fantastic recipe. I hope to hear from you and see you around soon!
