Happy Friday

My gallery wall is finally complete! Look for my complete home tour on The Everygirl next month.

Everything is 25% off at J.Crew, including my new dress & peplum top!
I was sick four the fourth time this year. Blah. Finally feeling a lot better, but still a little stuffy.
Speaking of cold, it’s freeeezing in Chicago. It’s in the 20s and it’s spring. Losing it.
Holly Becker of Decor8 wrote a very sweet post about TEG. Made my week.

Rue La La is obsessed with my dog. Hey, me too! Best little snuggle buddy when I’m sick.
I think I’ve made at least 39 almond milk lattes this week.
I photographed 12 breakfast recipes for TEG with my friend Kat Levitt, blogger behind A Girl and Her Food.
Shooting some breakfast recipes with the boy (for the blog) this weekend.
Triple date night with Lindsey and Gina tonight! In desperate need of some fun after the week I’ve had.

And a not so positive update–I tried to go to CrossFit yesterday and it did not go well. The WOD was 10
250m rows with 2 min rest in between each one. I was still a little
congested and my back hasn’t come close to being completely healed, but considering the fact that I’ve been 4x in a month when I usually go 4-5x a week, I
had to try. I made it through four rounds and was in so much
pain that I had to stop. I almost lost it, but managed to hold back any tears, although I felt like I hit a low. It honestly feels as if I’ll never feel better. It’s been a month and I am seeing very little improvement which is incredibly discouraging. I’m booking
some appointments with this sports medicine guy next week. He helped
with my neck/shoulder issues and costochondritis, so I’m hoping he can help with this.

 Didn’t mean to end on a negative note. Let’s focus on the positive–it’s FRIDAY!

    Love your gallery wall. Perfect mix of gold and silver, pictures and art! Happy friday! Hope you get to feeling better soon. It sucks! I feel like an elephant has been sitting on my chest for a week!

    FEEL BETTER! Have you ever tried acupuncture? It's made a difference for me with things across the board – back problems, acne, chronic dizziness, awful cramps – you name it, I've gone to acupuncture for it! Dan also goes often for congestion and sinus problems and loves how he feels afterwards!

  • Ashley Rizzardo

    Feel better! You just need to relax and let yourself heal. You'll back in the swing of things in no time at all!

    Happy Friday!

    Sorry to hear the crossfit session did not go good, but before you know it you'll be back as strong as you were! Feel better!

    Thank you for posting where you got those adorable zebra notes! I think that will be my mini splurge this month! =)

    Psychologically, it's so hard to give the body the 6-8 weeks it needs to heal from injury, but the body needs at least that long if it's truly going to heal. Pain is the only way our body has to communicate that we need to rest and heal.
    take good care of yourself, pamper yourself, enjoy your time with the boy, your friends, and the pup. 8 weeks will go by faster than you think….

    SO excited to see your apartment tour- based on the gallery wall, it's going to be beautiful!
    Don't worry too much about the CrossFit. I'm sure it's a total bummer to not go, and I know the 'laziness' effect can set in hard, but it's best to heal fully before forcing it. That way, when you do go back, you can kick CrossFit ass. hehe! 🙂
    Have a great weekend
