Crazy Wednesday Recap

Yesterday was nuts!  I meant to post, but I just didn't have any time to sit down and do it. 

I have no idea why you all aren't tired of my pictures, but a few of you wanted to see my snazzy jacket, so here is me on Tuesday.  I had just run 2 miles at lunch so my hair was sad and my makeup all ran off, but you get the idea.  This little number came from Cato!

Yesterday was a super great day!  First of all, another batch of Olympic tickets were released at 11am.  I was right by my computer and ready to go.  The website was moving SO SLOW and it was driving me crazy.  I went right for the Diving (there was nothing available for Swimming) and found tickets.  I went to put them in my cart and the website went nuts.  I think that they disappeared right before I got them.  Boooo!

When I went back in, the cheapest available tickets for Diving were $606.  Each.  Uh, no.  So then I went to Tennis.  The tennis matches are at Wimbledon which is totally awesome and so even if I don't know who is playing, I will be at Wimbledon for crying out loud.  The match at Centre Court was a little bit more than the match on the other court, but it was totally worth it!! 

After I got those, I decided to keep going for it.  There were a lot of tickets available, but they were all over $300 each.  I mean I wouldn't mind going to Weightlifting (especially now that I understand some of the technique involved) but I'm not going to pay $300 to watch it.  But then I found some tickets for Fencing.  There was no time to cross reference what event, I just knew it was in my price range so I took it.  Later I found out it is the Women's Individual Epee Finals.  Finals are always good because then you get to see someone win a medal.  I knew we had a good fencer that won the gold last time, but when I looked it up, I found out she was a Sabre fencer.  I hate when I mix up my Sabres and my Epees.  :)

All in all, it is a good deal.  We arrive on Saturday, 7/28 and we now have tickets to events on 7/29, 7/30, & 7/31.  That will allow us to figure things out before we start having to scrounge for tickets.  You never know who we will meet in our first four days!!  I consider it a challenge to get in to see at least one night of swimming!  It will happen folks.  If I had a vision board, that would be on it!! 

After that excitement, I went to a work lunch.  It wasn't noteworthy until in walks Owen Wilson.  Yes, THE Owen Wilson.  He sat two tables down by himself and quietly enjoyed his lunch.  I LOVE star spotting! 

Then, if that wasn't enough, I went to dinner with my beautiful sorority sister.  She was actually my Pledge Daughter.  SoDa=Sorority Daughter...go with it.  It just so happened that yesterday was the 2 year anniversary of SoDa losing all of her weight.  She was thin when she was younger but had some tough times and gained weight.  She made a commitment and worked hard and lost that weight.  She is truly one of my heroes. 

I LOVED my outfit yesterday! 

I figured I would throw in a picture of today's outfit while I'm at it.  Still wearing the new clothes from my Thanksgiving Shopping Extravaganza!

Why this one won't turn right is beyond me.  I'm technically inept apparently.  Anyway, my Chicago scarf and sparkly tights have me feeling festive yet again.

I just had a conversation with Pres and Lizard.  Pres guilted me into committing to going to CrossFit tomorrow morning.  But I really need to anyway.  I told him that I only let him guilt me when I know it is what I need to do anyway.  Ha!
