Another knee update and fun times with friends

I had one last appointment on Friday to review the results from the MRI which was last Monday (who knew this process required 3 separate appointments?!). I learned that I have an MCL (medial colateral ligament) sprain and will need to do physical therapy 1-2 times a week for 3-4 weeks. What a mess... haha. And here I thought I was just going to the doctor out of precaution! I didn't think I'd actually end up in physical therapy. Gracious. BUT, I am super thankful that it wasn't worse. I keep reminding myself that I could have ended up having surgery, so I suppose a few weeks of PT is not the end of the world. ;) They couldn't get me in for the first visit until next Monday, so my goal is to do the exercises they showed me everyday this week, so that hopefully I can "graduate" before the 4 week mark. :) I'm ready to walk in this nice weather and get back to my Jillians! (Jillian Michaels that is- we're on a first-name basis. Actually, I just abbreviate everything).

In other news, we celebrated one of my best friends' birthdays this weekend. We spent the afternoon in Smyrna at Land of a Thousand Hills coffee shop (the views there are just beautiful!) and then went back to Andrea's house for dinner. Here are some pics from the day!


How about Teagan's sunglasses?! ...and apparently the wind was only blowing on my side. 

Teagan sharing her sunglasses with Evie. :)

Catchin some snuggle time with T... I'll pretend like she was doing it intentionally


  1. So glad your knee wasnt worse!!! Great idea to do the exercises this week too :)

    Looks like such a fun weekend. The little ones are ADORABLE! :) The view is beautiful like you said. The last picture reminds me of a place we have around here. They have walking trails right on the water. Also so nice to go there!

  2. I am so glad you didn't have to have surgery! Pics are gorgeous. Nice to see people wearing shorts! We go to Florida in less than two weeks. Out of this incredibly long winter for a while.

  3. i'm glad to hear that your knee will be good as new in the next few weeks! :) i hope physical therapy does nothing but help (and go by quickly for ya)!
    your photos are beautiful - looks like the perfect day. teagan is a doll and i LOVE her little sunglasses!
    wishing you a wonderful week, heather! xoxox

  4. Looks beautiful! I'm jealous it's been ch-ch-chilly here. :)

  5. Your photos are fab, I am very jealous you have shorts and tshirt weather, we are still under a very late blanket of snow!

    Hope the pt works fast and your knee is back to normal soon.


  6. So glad you don't have to have surgery!! And it looks like an awesome weekend for y'all! I'm loving the paparazzi picture, haha! So true for everyone - guys always end up taking a picture on every device because everyone needs a copy, ha!

  7. I'm jealous of all the sun; and that you're in short sleeved shirts! There's nothing but cold and snow here in Toronto. :(

    Glad you didn't have to have surgery! I hope your sprain heals fast. :)

  8. Praise God! NO surgery. The pictures are amazing. It has been spring for awhile here in SE Texas. And VERY humid!

  9. These pictures look so much fun! And the weather looks amazing! Bless you this week, sweet sister!

  10. I hope that your knee heals quickly Heather. The pictures are beautiful. The sunglasses are lovely and just look at Teagan's real cool glasses!:) Enjoy the rest of your week.

  11. I'm a little late but glad you don't need surgery on your knee and you're being proactive about physical therapy! The pics are soooo cute, my fav is of course the sunglasses pic. How adorable!

  12. Sorry to hear about your knee! Hope the PT will help you recover fast.

    And the picture of your beautiful friends with those beautiful babies are too cute. Baby T's little skinny jeans are just too adorable!!
