A couple of my friends wanted to check out a new tea room nearby, The Sword and the Scone. Honestly, I had to ask what is a tea room? I am not a tea drinker, but give me coffee any day, all day.
But I'm always open to trying new things, and I'm so glad we went. It was the cutest little place. So many different teas to choose from, and they bring you all you want. We probably had about 10 different teapots on our table!

The thing that bonded the 3 of us together years ago was we were all desperate for a baby, but none of us could get pregnant. Walking through that impossible time in my life with them saved my life.
One of the girls now has 2 precious adopted babies!
It's so great getting together on occasion and still being able to understand and encourage eachother.
Then I got my hair done. I seem to be getting blonder each time...and that does not hurt my feelings.
I was really looking forward to yesterday though. Temps in the 70's and sunny! A perfect day for running. And since I haven't ran in 2 weeks, it was going to be perfect.
I quickly realized I was not ready to run yet though. I ran about 3 steps and had to go back to walking. I can only describe the feeling as the skin being ripped off my body in the areas I had lipo on. It felt like an intense burning. I walked 3 miles, and every time I would try to run, same thing.
I was so disappointed! I thought for sure I'd be able to run by now.
Another runner who had lipo over a month ago told me she still can't run. I know it's different for everyone though.
I will keep on walking (which doesn't feel great, but is doable), keep adding on the miles, and hopefully be running again soon. But I will be smart about it too, I'm not going to hurt myself.
Have a great week, my friends!
