OUT with the OLD. IN with the NEW

I got me some NEW WHEELS!!! (the white pair in the photo are my NEW blades!)
I took them out for a short spin today and they ride SO NICE! I actually feel like they've bumped my skill level up a notch! Seriously... It's a weird (but wonderful) feeling! I am much MORE confident and care-free rollerblading in them!

Aren't the purdy???

Tomorrow, Collin and I are going to start RIPPING apart the wooden deck and start excavting and preparing the area to install a retaining walled patio. It will look something like this:
I am SOOO EXCITED about this project!!!

Muscle cramps meet "THE STICK"

I have mentioned how I get MAJOR muscle cramp in my calves when I workout without eating a banana, right? Well, it's true! My body is weird, and needs the quickly avaliable potassium released in the banana in order to maintain proper muscle function. (or at least that's what I THINK is going on...)

I mentioned this to Wendy (my PT) and she suggested I get "the Stick"... has anyone ever heard of this massage tool? It looks AMAZING! I think it's EXACTLY what my freaky little calf muscles need to help break up all that lactic acid and what not from exercising. I got so excited when I found it on EBAY (for $25.00) that I bought one!!! The 17" travel Stick. I will definitely have a review once I get it and try it out a few times. My sore muscles can barely wait!!! PS... the website says it works GREAT for Fibromyalgia sufferers too!!! www.thestick.net/awards.htm#fms

Yes! I finally caught a bouquet at a wedding!!!

(Albeit I caught it with my BOOBS but that is NOT against the rules, is it?)

... so I guess this means I'm getting married soon!?!
