So first of all, the comments on my last post pretty much brought me to tears. All I can say is that you guys are SERIOUSLY amazing. Amazing. I would like to give all of you a big hug. Thank you AGAIN for reading and for coming back and I promise to always stay true to myself and be real, as that’s what most of you said you liked the most. Also, I got some requests to touch on my past ED and stress fracture a little bit more, so expect that in the future.

Also, remember when I mentioned I had a doctor’s appointment on Wednesday about my stress fracture? Well, apparently I’m a medical mystery. They did another x-ray and according to those results, my stress fracture has not improved (but also has not regressed) in the past 6 months. Fabulous. BUT the question is why I’m having pain WHERE I’m having it. I’m experiencing pain in my hip area while the stress fracture is a good bit lower than that, which confuses my doctor. SO, I am supposed to have a MRI Monday (which may not happen as we’re supposed to get dumped with snow) to see if there’s an issue with my hip and if so, we are going to try a shot of cortisone in my hip..ouch. And if there’s no issue with my hip or that doesn’t work, my doctor is going to try other things to figure what’s going on. Finally, we’re getting somewhere. I’ll be sure to keep you up to date with the goings on!


And now, what you actually came for… the FOOD! As most of my last posts have been word heavy, I have a good bit of pictures to unload on you so here goes! And some may or may not have been from back in December…oops.

I then continued the night with a fro-yo date with a couple friends, a Bonfire with another friend (which are highly overrated… I STILL smell), and then going out… I slightly overbooked myself as I’m not used to having a Friday night off. But hey, you only live once!

How has your weekend been?
