4 Miles, Puppers, Full Saturday, Injury

Happy Sunday!! Hope you're all having beautiful days - I am. This is what i'm looking at right now (aside from your blogs)
I love spending the day with my puppers! Backing up a bit to Friday, which was just a busy work day. I was able to get in a 4-mile walk during lunch with Stacy - YAY! We also did abs. After work, I headed straight home, did a few chores and then me and Austin headed to meet Katie and Cush at their place for a drink. Which led to another drink at Taco Mac with a big group of buddies, then us, Katie & Cush & Jeff went to a local bar near the casa. Trying to get in as much Katie & Cush time as possible before they leave for Colorado. I'm am going to miss them SO much. Great night! I was asleep by 1:30.

Saturday I got up and had intended to hit the gym, but got a lot done at home instead, doing laundry, wrapping gifts, grocery shopping, dropping items off at Goodwill, getting gas - you name it. 1 p.m. came early, and it was time to shower and get to Jennifer's to give her a baby shower gift and see the nursery! I visited with her for a bit, then went to get a haircut (bliss!), then went to my mom's and visited with her and then drove over to her friend's Naka & Meredith to meet them and their little boy Kai. My mom nannies for Kai and LOVES it - I see why - they seem like wonderful people, their house is fabulous and Kai couldn't be cuter! After THAT, we hit up Leon's for dinner with 20 to celebrate Katie & Cush's going away! We got an amazing spot outside; able to enjoy the weather but sit by a heat lamp - perfection. From dinner, we headed to Twain's. The guys hit up the foosball, shuffleboard and beer, while us ladies chatted about everything from weddings to babies to work - we also hit up the vodka. Wonderful night with great friends, and so fun to meet new, awesome peeps! Here's some pics!

Most of the group - a few got cut off - sad!
Fun group shots!
GREAT times with these ladies! We even got in that photo booth behind us. Yes, all 6 of us. Hilarity. And I LOVE that we're all brunettes!

ONE thing did not go my way last night. My finger got slammed in a door. BAD. Like I almost passed out from all of the blood (yes, it was very embarrassing haha). Thankfully - Austin got me in a chair and the girls helped cool me off and I was back to normal and doctored up quickly. In the meantime... go here to see a pic. You know, if you're morbidly curious. :) I had it posted here but don't want to gross people out... sorry if you've already seen it! LOL

The whole part on the top/right is 'loose' - like 3/4" of skin is flapping around - EW. Thankfully, I have a great wound cleaner kit (from my runner's toe problem) so I'm good to go but GENA it hurts. Even now - as I type about how bad it hurts.

Q: Why do "nail problems" hurt SO DANG BAD? I mean really!

Q: What 'cha up to today?! We are doing nothing. Just making hummus, cooking a bit, wrapping up laundry, petting the baby puppers and enjoying the lazy day together. Is a busted thumb a good excuse to skip the gym? No?

Yikes! My stomach just turned a bit, haha. I'm a blood wuss too.

Glad you're having such a good weekend!

OWWWWWW. I would have been freaking out, I hate hate hate blood. During my last half marathon my toenail turned black and it just fell off a few weeks ago (a solid 2 months after the race). So. Gross.

I couldn't bring myself to look. I don't do well with that kind of stuff. You poor thing!

What a fun filled weekend! And Sunday being a rest day sounds like a great idea to me! The group pics are totally cute. Sorry to hear about the finger (yikes!) Today, we had a blogger brunch, I cleaned the house, walked outside in this GORGEOUS weather and now I'm baking ;)

Ugh, the injury sounds painful. I'm too much of a wuss to look. I wish finger and nail injuries didn't hurt so much. Papercuts? WTF!

lee said...

Ack, I looked! Sounds very painful!! However, the rest of your weekend sounds fun.

Sounds like you had a great weekend aside from the injury (major ouch). Finger injuries are the worst. They hurt so freaking bad. So don't be embarrassed one bit!

Slammed fingers hurt soooo bad! I once closed our front door on my finger, and I nearly passed out... Hope your finger will be all better soon! Glad the rest of your weekend was good!

Have a great week!
