Fro-yo heals stress fractures and my favorite pants

Princess Grace became an author this week. She was one of two students chosen in her second grade class to take part in her school's Story Studio program. The students spent two hours every week for eight weeks working on writing their own book. At the end of the eight weeks, the book was published. The fam went to a special celebration where the authors received a printed copy of their book. A hard cover copy will be kept in the school library. Needless to say, it made this mom happy to see how much she loved it!

This also made me very happy. I am so ready for summer! I'm just trying to ignore the fact that this is basically the most perfect month of the year to run outside.

Speaking of the the fact that I can't run, this is one of the things I'm doing to help ensure there are no more stress fractures in my future. Since taking calcium the size of horse pills wasn't working out for me, I tried the chewables. It was the right call.

I'm also getting extra calcium in the form of fro-yo. Can you tell which one is mine and which is Ellie Bean's?

When you meet your favorite friends to get fro-yo in the middle of the day, it requires adult clothing. So I wore my new pants. These pants are my new favorites. Actually they are tied for favorite with a navy pair I have exactly like them. I bought the navy ones a few months ago during a 1-day sale when they were $10 (normally $30!). I loved them so much, I went to the store several times hoping to find a khaki pair in my size. Last week one of the girls who worked there offered to call other stores to try and find them. She finally found a pair in my size in Colorado. On clearance. For $10.50. Sold!

What are your favorite fro-yo toppings?

Any fun Friday night plans?



  1. Ok princess looks so dang grown up with those earrings! Makes me kinda sad...Awesome for her though to write a book! Proud mommy moment for sure! :-)
