And what a more fitting way to blog on my one hundredth blog than to tell a sad story.
My back does not like me.
After eighteen years of dancing and six chiropractors, it really is no wonder. I'm not surprised. But I am surprised that it decided to act up after:
1) a mere workout (via DVD) in my living room and three hours of housecleaning
2) a week of slight pain - it hurt to cough or sneeze
3) a walk at the end of the week at Brown County park (less than a mile)
4) and the final straw: bending over on Sunday morning while getting ready for church (I just bent over! I wasn't even reaching for anything!)
Something popped/snapped/shifted when I bent over. And then I was on my back for forty-eight hours. Just like that. In too much pain to sit up by myself or move my left arm. I'm going to the doctor tomorrow. It's better but not back to normal by any means.
I told you.
My back does not like me.

I love the lace on this one! And the fact that it is grey. This is my first pick.
I just couldn't say no to the detailing on the back of this dress (definitely an updo is in order) and the blue just pops!
And one more black and white lace. My favorite colors. I couldn't resist.

Saturday morning I had coffee with my good friend Liz at the local Zionsville hangout. It was packed. But we talked like no one was around for over three hours. Girl time + coffee + a lazy Saturday morning = amazing.
I cleaned the apartment all afternoon on Saturday --> bathrooms, mopped all the floors, dusted, washed the inside of the refrigerator, cleaned the mirrors, did two loads of laundry . . . A clean place is my favorite.
I started reading "Twilight" by Stephanie Myers on Saturday night at 8:00 p.m. (after all of the cleaning was finished and I took Bryce dinner at the fire station). And I finished it at 5:30 p.m. on Sunday. It is addicting, that is for sure. If you have a few hours (or days) to be sucked into a book, the "Twilight" series is just the series for you.
It was my sister's birthday yesterday - November 1 - and she turned 21. I would never, ever have thought that at this point in our lives she would be living in Maine with a new husband and a baby on the way (less than 3 months!) AND I would be living in Indiana with a new husband. I hate the fact that we're so far apart but I love what God is doing. Jessica - I love you!
