Mr. Pi left on Saturday for a week in the desert, also known as Burning Man. This means Zoey and I have the place to ourselves for the next 10 days. So, what'd we do? We threw a party! And by "we" I really mean me, Zoey is cute and all but not much help in the party planning business. After hosting the bridal shower today I've decided that I need to find a way to become a full time party planner/hostess because I really love to plan and host parties. One thing I'm not good at is taking pictures of the finished product of things. I took lots of pictures of the setup but not of how everything actually looked all finished. Oh well. Here are some photos of the setup:
Early stage of planning, laying out where I want things to be
Party favors for guests
Cupcakes! (Orange and green are the wedding colors so I tried to match things to their colors)

In addition to hosting the bridal shower this weekend, I also was knee deep in The Hunger Games and I started watching Heros on Netflix (yes, I am always about 5 years behind on TV). The good news is that staying off my feet has helped my foot! I was able to walk around the house most of the day in a normal shoe with minimal pain. I've been taking ibuprofen and icing it on and off all weekend but I think it's finally on the mend! Yesterday morning I woke up and felt an onset of plantar fasciitis but that quickly went away with ice, rest and rolling a gold ball on my foot. Honestly, when I felt that pain I thought to myself "SERIOUSLY, what else?!?!?!?!?!?!!" Thankfully that pain has subsided today. I'm going to give myself one more day in the boot and then try a couple days without it. I'm ready to be healed already!
I know all the Hood to Coast race reports are going to be up soon, can't wait to read them. Next year, I WILL be healthy and hopefully will get on my company's team!
Sorry my posts are getting boring lately. I just don't have much in the way of running or biking to write about. I still have been swimming like a fish though.
