Chelsea’s wedding yesterday was beautiful and amazing and I am so happy that I was able to be apart of it!

We had a great time at the reception, and we had lot’s of fun “cutting a rug.”  My partner in the wedding party said that we were going to cut up so many rugs that they would have to bring in extra.  It was funny at the time…

So we decided to spice it up!


Rewind to Saturday Morning

Mom and I woke up bright and early on Saturday to get ready for the 10k Fort 4 Fitness run/walk.  We headed there around 7am so that Mom could volunteer (and get a good parking spot) and I could do a little pre-race warmup run with my running buddy that I met when I rand the Fort 4 Fitness course.

I started off really strong and actually felt like I was running faster than I usually do.  I was going strong until mile 5 when my right knee started to hurt all of a sudden on the lateral (outside) portion.  I definitely had to slow down my pace and didn’t stop running even though it hurt.  I made sure to take some anti-inflammatory medicine and ice it while we were getting our hair ready for the wedding, and I am going to make sure to rest it for another day before heading out to run again.


Brian and I slept in nice and late today…I woke up at 9:49am….that is like majorly sleeping in for me!  After packing everything up, showering, and getting ready Mom made us lunch.  Weird…I didn’t eat breakfast because I woke up so late…I always eat breakfast.

Mom told me about what she was going to make us for lunch about a week ago because she was so excited.

She put lettuce, red pepper, carrot, red onion, pepperoncini, hummus, and cucumbers on an Thomas Everything Bagel Thin.  These little sandwiches were so delicious!  I loved how the hummus complemented all of the different vegetables and the pepperoncini gave the whole sandwich a little tang.  I am going to have to replicate them sometime soon.


We then went to the Valencia Parade of Homes which is in a neighborhood that is right down the road from my parents.  Brian loves watching House Hunters and just about everything else on HGTV so this event was right up his alley.

Brian was loving this outdoor seating
Couch in my closet? Don't mind if I do!

Some of the houses seemed more like mazes, some of the decorations were not practical at all, but it was overall a great fun way to spend the afternoon!


Off to watch the premiere of the FINAL season of Desperate Housewives…I can’t believe that show started 7 years ago, I was only 15!  Time flies.
