Happy Happy Sunday!
Hope you’re enjoying the last weekend of March! It was a busy week in Meganland. I had way too many appointments this week. A unexpected PT session for leg cramping, elbow therapy, another dry needling session (hurt so bad), OB apt, dentist and pilates. All those things (minus the dentist) are helping me feel 1000 times better. By the time Friday rolled around, all I wanted to do was veg on the couch. Of course that was the exact opposite of what I did and no, I didn’t go on another shopping extravaganza.
Yesterday I was in Scottsdale all day for SoFabU. It was a great event! I’m both excited and overwhelmed with the information. The photography and food staging was my favorite part. Always so many opportunities to explore, so much to do and no time to do it. It made me wonder why I am interested in so many things?
In other news, Mom sent me this pic this week with this word “REALLY?” That means why is it still snowing in Wisconsin when it’s almost April. Read->it’s messing up her decorations. She can decorate like it’s no one’s business. She should decorate the White House. If you need a decorator, hire her. Email me. I have her number. Honestly I can’t imagine living somewhere with snow right now. It was 95 in Phoenix this weekend. That was too hot. I’d be more than willing to share the heat with you if I could. Spread the love!
This week’s gonna be a busy one getting ready for Germany! Prepping and freezing meals and snacks, making these pancakes, packing, getting blog work done in advance and fitting in last minute therapy so I better get tooting. Hitting the trails for an early morning hike & trail run. Gotta get these legs de-chunked. Enjoy the links and see you back tomorrow for some carrot goodness!
