You win some, you lose some.

The weekend was basically an emotional roller coaster from the get go.

Friday I came home from a long day at work and was ecstatic at the smell of the Chicken Enchilada Soup that had been cooking all day in the Crock Pot. Then I started Insanity Day 5 and basically hated everything for that hour, but finishing the workout meant that I was one step closer to deliciousness that was dinner and also an unplugged date night in with Caleb.

Saturday we slept in, and I finished week 1 of Insanity (can I just be proud of myself for exercising 6 days in a row real quick!? That hasn't happened in...oh wait, probably never), then had just enough time to shower and get ready for the wedding. Caleb and I were a little stressed out due to the forecast and the brides wishes to head Downtown. I get a lot of anxiety pre-portraits when we go Downtown because there are always large crowds. BUT the universe was in our favor as the park had hardly anyone in it, and the rain held off ALL. DAY. I still can't believe it.

To make a very long story short though, I had a slight headache right before their ceremony started. Then Caleb found me in a corner afterwards in tears from the pain I felt behind my eye and over the next few hours it turned into a full blown migraine. I just couldn't pull myself together. I painted on a smile and made it through the family formals and once we got to the reception things just weren't in my favor. I could hardly focus out of one eye, things looked grey, and the migraine hit the back of my neck.

I just have to say thank goodness for Caleb. He took control, got an Aspirin from the coordinator there, told me that he could handle the entire reception if I just wanted to lay down in the car until the night was over to unwind and not focus on anything but the back of my eyelids, ha! While I am completely confident in his abilities, I would've felt bad doing that because the couple paid a lot of money to have TWO photographers. So during dinner, I went to my car to lay down flat, prayed SO hard to feel better and after 15 minutes I woke up feeling like a new person. I honestly couldn't believe it. I almost cried HAPPY tears, that time! I was able to head back into the reception in time for the dances to start and by the time we left, I felt completely fine. Thank goodness!

Sunday in itself was a roller coaster of emotions, as are most Sundays with Bengals games. Being a football fan is so fun, but sometimes its heart breaking! We're just going to move past it and hope for a MUCH better outcome next week!

Hope everyone had a nice weekend and has a good week ahead of them.
