I love weddings. I always feel so optimistic and hopeful. And it gives me the chance to dress up. Y’all know I’m more of a t-shirt and jeans and sneakers girl but every so often I doll myself up and amaze myself =)

Tonight I’m wearing this cute dress I got on sale at Macy’s a few weeks back. It’s got a white lining with black lace over top.

Yesterday I walked almost 4 miles with one friend (and our dogs) in the morning and then another 2 miles in the evening with another friend (and our dogs). Duncan was exhausted by the time we drove home from the second walk…

that was a little too much for me ma!

It was great except my knee felt a bit sore by evening. My friend Doreen has a history in the medical field and as I describe the knee stuff she said it was a MUST for me to get some sort of compression sleeve for my knee. So I went to Target and got the cheapest one because in my mind I knew I probably would not even bother.

Today though, I had a change of heart and decided to at least try running a couple of miles with it.

slow and steady

I don’t know if it was a placebo effect or not but my knee didn’t feel as tentative as it did the last few times. It slid down a little bit as I was running but eventually settled at a secure spot which felt comfortable. So…..it looks like I’ll be wearing it on Sunday. I just hate that it squishes the fat above my knee up. LOL!

Well, I’m off to get ready….I’ll be headed to the church ceremony shortly.

And for a little weekend inspiration, I leave you with this:
