Weekend Recap

This weekend involved a lot if late nights and early mornings but it was so worth it.

Friday, I left work early to head to the doctor's office for my knee. The good news is the doctor doesn't think it's anything serious. He's sending me for an MRI to be sure, but he thinks it's just a bad case of IT Band Syndrome. The bad news is, the reason this it's flaring up so badly is because the last doctor diagnosed me with tendinitis and sent me to PT for tendinitis...not ITBS so I was never actually treated for the problem. Lovely.

After the doctor, The Pilot and I made our way to the airport to catch a flight to Jersey. One missed flight and two delays later, my mom picked us up from the airport just after midnight. We got to my mom's house and passed out.

Saturday morning, I got up early to start the first round of what would be a long day of adjustments to my wedding dress. My poor mom has been working on it pretty much every weekend and it's taking way longer than she thought, but it's coming along and I can't wait until it's finished!

We spent the afternoon lounging around my mom's house before grabbing an early dinner and making our way into New York for the Mets game with my friends Jason and Joe. It was Jason's birthday week and Nolan Ryan bobblehead day so it wasn't at all hard to convince me to take the trip to Citifield!

I was a little worried because it was downpouring while we were on the 7 line but luckily the game only suffered a rain delay. The Mets ended up losing 5-4 but I'm hoping we can see them take the W when they come to DC this weekend to take on the Nationals!

It was another late night at the ballpark and an early morning on Sunday for one last dress fitting before brunch with the family. My mom made omelets, quiche, potatoes, mimosas and bread pudding and it was all perfect.

At 1, we made our way back to the airport to catch an afternoon flight back to DC. We picked up Peyton from my friend's apartment and then biked our way to Capitol Hill for dinner. We shared a fantastic pizza at Hawk 'n' Dove and then biked our way home and called it a night.

It was a great weekend. I was so happy to be back at Citifield for the first time in almost 2 years and it was great spending the weekend with my mom and seeing how my dress is coming along. I should have another 2 or 3 trips home before it's done and I can't wait!

I hope everyone got to spend the weekends celebrating their moms!


  1. Soo special your mom makes the dress!!

  2. I can only imagine how exciting it is seeing your dress come together! So glad you had a nice weekend for mother's day! :)

  3. I love the fact that your mom is making your wedding dress. So amazing! I hope the MRI helps you figure out what's going on with your knee. So frustrating trying to figure out what's happening.
