Guys, I have been MIA from posting due to a few things:
1) My back went out in early May. It sucked, and I've been doing Physical Therapy a few times a week. My PSA to anyone who has had a baby - start building your core back up ASAP after you have that baby. I was a total slacker after little man came along - before him I was a Spinning instructor, worked out a few times a week, I was in great shape. After him I didn't set foot in a gym until he was 13 months old. And when I did, I thought, "Hey, Spinning class!" and I felt awesome until a few hours later when I couldn't even get off the couch or walk because I had raw nerve pain shooting up and down my back, in to my legs, etc. Essentially, because I had done nothing to build my core back, my back was overcompensating and doing all the work, and I must have twisted, or lifted wrong, and my back just couldn't do it anymore. It sucked. I couldn't pick up my (25 pound) baby, couldn't go to work, I honestly laid on the couch for 3 days trying not to move.
2) I was working on some non-Pinterest projects! I replaced a zipper on a super cute Steve Madden motorcycle jacket that my colleague's daughter recieved as a gift - but it had no zipper pull! And I did some alterations on a friend's Ellen Tracy dress - there was some draping that had gone all wrong, which is probably why she was able to snatch it up from a thrift shop for like $6.
3) I have been getting myself ready for some work travel that I will embark on tomorrow. When I say get myself ready, it's more of getting myself mentally and emotionall ready to leave the family for the week. Business travel lost its luster quite fast once I had the little man. So I've been making some deposits in my cuddle reserve, since I will be withdrawing a bunch between Tuesday and Friday.
Before I check out completely for the week, I will post a quick little project I did today, because it's friggin easy and cute.
