TWOsday – v.1

Adventures, friendships

Stephanie has been doing a TWOsday post for awhile and finally this week I remembered to participate! You can too! Just write about two random things that have been on your mind, products you’ve been using, books you’ve been reading… two of whatever, and then go link up!

Two on Tuesday


I sprained my ankle a couple of years ago by stepping in a pothole outside of my apartment while wearing 4″  heels. I wrote an angry email to the city. They never replied. But I continued to wear heels all the time.


Then, after running a 5k where I really strained both of them because of bad shoes, I started cutting back on the heels. I used to be able to go to a special event and keep ridiculously high, luxury heels on my feet all night. I made it 4.5 hours on Saturday before these babies came off.

No, I cannot get him to take a serious photo unless it's his idea first.

My ankles weren’t suffering, thankfully. Barre class has helped them so much. But the balls of my feet were like, “WHAT ARE  YOU DOING PUTTING ALL OF  YOUR WEIGHT ON ME?!”


I hate to admit defeat, but ouch! And yes, I had to wash my feet in the cabin tub before I went to bed.


I’m going to Blogpodium this weekend! I cannot wait! I don’t know many people going, so if you are, let me know!

Not only is it my first out-of-town blog conference since Influence Conference (had serious FOMO knowing people were there this weekend!), it will also my first time out of the country! While Canada isn’t terribly far or a major cultural shift, from what I hear, I am so excited for this milestone in my life.

I’m going to lose my ice-breaker response to any “tell us 2 truths and 1 lie” question, but I think it will be worth it :).

TWO 1/2

I missed the Cowboys game yesterday because the drive from Idaho to Western WA was 7 hours long. I caught some of it on the Cowboys radio app, but then I lost service. I woke up from a nap to one of our road-trip buddies saying “Tony Romo broke his collar bone!” You better believe that snapped me awake.

I am not going to address this in much detail, partly because I’m in denial. But I have to say, if my first ever NFL game, my first visit to AT&T stadium and my first tour of the stadium will be when Tony isn’t even playing, I am going to be so bummed! I know there’s a split in the Cowboys fans about Tony, but I’ve loved him since day 1. I’m sending him good vibes and prayers for a speedy recovery. I know the weekend will still be amazing no matter what! (I also don’t think our playoff hopes are destroyed because of it.) #CowboysNation

OK, that’s enough Cowboys whining. Make sure you go link-up with Stephanie for Two on Tuesday!

    Props to you for wearing heels that long! I can’t even wear heels at all! My ankles are so bad and I probably have to have surgery in December because of it. I’m so jealous of people who can though, they are always so pretty!

    lol :D I stepped on a pothole with heel on once too! It was hell! I can laugh about it now but I was in tears back then. Also, I can relate to you not wanting to stop wearing heels. I didn’t give them up either. I’m only 5 feet tall, so that thought has never crossed my mind!

    I don’t wear heels with a perfectly fine ankle.. Kudos to you for wearing them after you got hurt – LOL!

    i used to love heels, and then i started working with kids and now i literally have no reason to wear them consistently… and when i do wear them i feel really self-conscious because people ask why i’m overdressed haha.

    have so much fun at the blogging conference! i want to go to one SO BAD, but i never think about it in advance haha. make sure to bring back all that you’ve learned and share it with us <3
