26.2 Revisited 17

26.2 Revisited

What were you doing one year ago today? Do you remember? I do. I was waking up very early in an over-priced hotel in Nashville so that I could put on some short shorts and run 26.2 miles. Yep. One year ago today, I completed my first marathon. I hope to some day try it again. I performed very poorly, compared to what I expected. I had run 20 miles three weeks before and hadn’t stopped to walk but through my water breaks. I didn’t start to get blisters until mile 18. So, these two things made me pretty optimistic...

Saturday: Part One. 7

Saturday: Part One.

Yesterday was loads of fun and I think I’m done getting all of the pictures up on flickr. However, as usual, there are so damn many I know most of the casual readers of this site probably won’t make it through them all. So, I’m going to first pull out some of my favorites from Panoply yesterday. We got there when it first opened so NikkiZ was able to take her time at all of the Kids Craft tents and made some really cool things. We didn’t get to do them ALL because as it got more crowded, the groups...

Who IS That Girl?

Well. We did Panoply and made nine-hundred cool things in the children’s crafty areas. We ran through some fountains downtown. We played in a drum circle. We went to the Botanical Gardens to see the butterflies and play in the water features there. I’m officially worn the hell out and don’t think I’ll ever move again. I’ll upload the pictures gradually – but for now? I wanted to show you my favorite (so far) creation from Panoply.

Panoply 18


We have an art festival downtown every year. It is called Panoply and it runs this weekend. We went as a family last night because Saturday and Sunday are out of the question for us as a group. So, we went last night to try to enjoy it for a few hours. MrZ is pretty sure he hasn’t been to this festival in years, which is one of the downsides to being an adult in the town you grew up in: You take stuff for granted. He ended up really enjoying himself and I’m actually kinda hoping he’ll go with...

Operation Getting My Body Back Post-Baby 30

Operation Getting My Body Back Post-Baby

Well. My eye is better this morning. Either the particle that was irritating it is gone, or the allergy attack has waned. Either way – the reminant swelling will hopefully fade as the day progresses so I can get back to being the totally hott and sexy 36-week pregnant woman I know I can be. Speaking of that…my weight gain this pregnancy looks like I’m going to hit the exact same weight at delivery with AndyZ as I did with NikkiZ. Since I started out 10lbs heavier this time, that means I’ll have actually gained less. But, that still puts...
