Bring on the Week

So man, this past weekend really did its best to bring me back down to reality after an awesome past couple of weeks.  On Friday, my uncle passed away.  Saturday morning, I awoke to more sad news: My aunt, who was at my uncle’s bedside, had to put her beloved black lab Foster to sleep.  […]

An L-B-B-P Filled Weekend

Lululemon.  Barbeque.  Blogging.  Podcasting.  That pretty much sums up my weekend. Jay, Clif, & I saw “Prometheus” on Friday night.  I actually liked it a lot.  I recognize it had its issues, but I really liked it.  On Saturday morning, I took a class at Pure Barre.  I really enjoy the Pure Barre workout, but […]

The Days Go By So Fast

I cannot believe it’s been one year since Jay and I got married and 5 years to the day that we met!  Today was a fantastic day.  We got up early and went kayaking on the Neuse River.  It was beautiful and the weather was fantastic.  We saw lots of turtles and even a mother […]

Anniversary Weekend!

I cannot believe that it’s been a year since Jay and I got married.  This weekend is our anniversary weekend.  We got married on April 29, 2011 for anyone who doesn’t want to do the math, haha.  Anyway, we’re not doing anything super fancy to celebrate.  I still have class through May 1, so we […]

Through the Window

I will admit that I am one of those Catholics who have a difficult time concentrating while at mass.  My mind wanders and I often feel like the lead character Bethany in Dogma, who balances her checkbook during mass (except I do online banking, so I leave my checkbook at home).  Today, I couldn’t help […]

Easter Weekend Recap

I cannot believe that it’s April 9 already.  It feels like just yesterday I was writing that post about what to give up for Lent and now Lent is already over.  I hope everyone had a nice Easter! Jay & I went home to see my family on Long Island for Easter this year.  It […]

Our Lucky Walk

One of the things that Jay decided to do for Lent this year is to go for one of “my” walks with me at least every Sunday.  “My” walks are long.  One of my favorite things to do is listen to my iPod and walk or hike around for hours.  I can walk anywhere.  I […]

Chatty Monday

Oh, Monday.  I have such a love/hate relationship with Mondays.  I hate them because it means the start of another work week, but I love them because they tend to be the “quietest” day of my week.  Most people get caught up for the week on Friday; I’m lucky enough to be able to get […]

My Weekend in Food

I did not have as productive a weekend as I wanted to have.  I didn’t make it to the gym yesterday, I didn’t finish all of the thank you cards (though to date, I have written 78 of them and my brain is incredibly tired), and I didn’t do nearly as much homework as I […]
