5 things Friday and my first post op appt

Happy Friday! I hope you guys had a great week!

Here's a few things from mine:

1. Look at this baby! This is Hank. He is my precious nephew. I mean have you ever?? He lives close by, but I sure don't get to see him often enough. He is one classy kid.
2. I don't remember if I told you guys that I got eyelash extensions a couple months ago. At the time, I was in love with them.

They are high maintenance though, I had to get them filled in every 2 weeks, which just seemed way too often. I needed to take them off for my surgery, and when I did- I was shocked at what was left of my poor natural lashes. It was awful. What few I actually had left, were short and stubbly. I mostly have bald patches. Thankfully eyelashes grow back.
 No more eyelash extensions for me!

3. Since Jeremy's Dad passed away, he quit his job of 10 years at Sprint, to take over his Dad's business at Primerica Financial Services. This has been a dream of his for many years, although he always dreamed of working with his Dad.
 Last night he officially became an RVP with the company, taking his Dad's place. So they had a big meeting and the whole family celebrated. It was really special.

 My sweet stepsons :)
(My first big outing since my lipo, other than work)
4. Wednesday I had my first post op visit with my Dr. Since my surgery I've lost 3.5 lbs., which really impressed him. He said most people stay the same or gain. I told him I'm serious about losing the rest of this weight!
 He said I was still very swollen and he and the nurse couldn't believe how badly I was bruised. She said "he sure did a number on you, didn't he?" I said I'm glad he did!
He showed me a picture of the 4 liters of fat he removed. It was so gross! (That's like 2, 2 liters of coke!)  He's very happy with my progress and wants to see me again before my half marathon in 3 weeks. (3 WEEKS!! Yes, I'm freaking out)

5. I get a 3 day weekend, the temps are going to be in the 70's, AND I'm going to attempt to run for the first time!



  1. OH MY GOSH>>>>>>> your eye lashes. That is what I was scared of... I had a similar thing with acrlyic nails. It messed my nails up for years afterwards. Hope your lashes get healthy soon!
    Congrats to your husband. That has to ease a part of his heart knowing he's stepping into the path his dad was on. (you look so cute in that dress!)
    ... a baby tie... I swoon every time.

  2. Wow sounds like you are recovering really well! AmaZing you are already back running!!! Good on you!

    1. Not running yet, still just walking. Hopefully soon!!!

  3. That is so sad about your eyelashes. :-( Congrats to Jeremy on doing so well at his new position/company.

    I can't imagine running a half so soon after having surgery. But, if the doctor is okay with it, then I should be, too. :-D
