Shh, Don’t Tell My Doctor & Liebster Award

Shhhh! Don’t tell my podiatrist that I’m wearing flats. I have had problems with my feet my whole life gaining me many trips to the podiatrist and orthotics to wear in my tennis shoes. On my most recent visit to the doctor, I was told me feet were so bad he couldn’t bare to see me walk. Harsh, right? I knew my feet were in pain but I didn’t realize I was that bad. Sure,  I hadn’t seen my podiatrist in five years and had been wearing flats more than usual which don’t fit my orthotics but does it really matter that much? Apparently, it does. My feet took a turn for the worse. I was diagnosed with posterior tibial tendonitis and was told I will have to have surgery later in life. He said in order to delay surgery as a long as possible, I must take care of my feet. Which means no more flats. I have to wear tennis shoes with my orthotics or (and here comes the good news) HEELS! Yay! Finally doctor permission to wear heels! At least it wasn’t all bad!

Catalina Island

By | Uncategorized | 11 Comments
The best sister in the world! I love you Jamie!
Day One: Celebrating that we made it to the top on our unexcpected hike.
Day Two: Headed to breakfast and then shopping
Ready to go parasailing!
We went 800ft. up!
Getting dipped in the water

Relaxing on the beach
Dinner and dancing
Day Three: Our last day…we woke up early and went and a morning hike
The view from our hike. Our hotel was just 1/2 a block from the beach.

We had the best time celebrating for my sister’s bachelorette party!

This past weekend my four best friends and I went to Catalina Island to celebrate my sister, Jamie’s, upcoming wedding! We have all been friends since I was in first grade (Jamie, Cori and Elizabeth were in 2nd and Liz, our cousin, was in kindergarten). We made some wonderful memories that none of us will ever forget.

I think everyone’s favorite part was parasailing. It was a blast! Our least favorite part…our plane home being delayed for two hours. But what can you do? You can sleep in the airport for two hours, which is exactly what we did.

I had the best time ever with my favorite people! Love you gals!

Hiking Shoes

Catalina Island was so much fun!!!! I’m super tired today and haven’t even made it out of my pj’s yet (it’s 6:00pm)

This is the outfit I wore going to Catalina. When we got there we decided to start exploring the island and ended up hiking a blocked off dirt path to the top of a hill/mountain that overlooked the town and beach. We took these pictures once we reached the top. Since we weren’t planning on this hike, me, my sister, and our friend Elizabeth were all wearing three inch wedge heels. But surprisingly, nobody fell and I think I found my new favorite hiking shoes/wedges 😉

I’ll post more pictures from our trip tomorrow!
