Sweet Lordy, I need to post other than these updates! I love how full life is right now, but man I want to chill and write out my thoughts. Buuut in the meantime... here is the update.
A few changes are actually being made to my list.
1. I have realized that my ankle can't even handle light jogging right
now, so the 5k goal was not doing much for my health. I have decided that my new goal is to get to my pre-surgery weight, which would put me back at a healthy BMI. I joined a gym so I can cycle, swim with the girls, and use my wii fit. I feel much better about having a realistic fitness goal... though I'm sad every time I see people running.
2. I set the camping goal at Harbor Islands just because I wanted to make sure to go camping, and those islands were them most easily accessible. However, James & I decided to do one better, and will spending 3 days on a lake in Maine next week. :) Books, kayaks, food, James. Ahhhhh bliss. I can't wait to decompress.
I'm happy to say that I got to pull off my own surprise. :) I have always associated Paul Simon with my dad, so when I found out Paul was playing live in Boston, I knew I had to try to go. The show was sold out, but I found someone who online who was selling them, and traded them for portraits of her adorable dog... great trade! The show... was... phenomenal! Paul is a true musician, and it was so special to surprise my dad in such a meaningful way.
I have checked off another coffeeshop. The girls love coffee/chocolate milk dates, and we had time to spare, so we headed over to Equal Exchange Cafe. Their London Fog is divine. :)
Lastly, I got my TOMS finally. :) I've been torn because I wanted yellow ones (yellow shoes are the best). I also wanted a pair of boat shoes, but couldn't afford those as well as TOMS. The, they put out their new spring line... which included yellow boat style shoes. Holla!!!
