I feel like I have so much life to catch you guys up on. I actually just feel like I have more excitement the last few weeks then the three months living in New Jersey.
Last weekend (Valentine’s Weekend) I went down to Virginia to run the Virginia is for Lovers 14k. Although the Virginia is for Lovers 14k was my primary reason for driving down there, I had many other reasons like seeing family and friends like Theresa and Kris L. I always enjoy traveling down to VA because I enjoy seeing all of my friends. My heart and friends are in Virginia so it is always nice to visit.
I’m not allowed to call it home anymore because I do live in NJ. (with no chances of moving!) I am allowed however, to call it my hometown.
So outside of the Virginia is for Lovers 14k what else did I do?
I saw Theresa. We ended up hanging out and just chatting for a while.
I also was lucky to see Kris before leaving too. Kris is an amazing athlete who I need to get her autograph before she goes to trials. We’ve been good friends for a while but I can never sing her enough songs.
Outside of seeing some friends and hanging out…I ate…I ate a lot.
I ate pita bread at a Greek restaurant.
I ate too much whip cream at the local froyo shop, sweet frog. I definitely took my relaxing and eating too much on vacation. I always say I’ll stick on a pretty tight budget so I can go out to eat. That is definitely true. After nearly 2 months of hanging out in NJ, it was nice to get out of town for the weekend. I enjoyed seeing my friends and family.
Coincidentally last weekend was a strange one for my family. My dad was getting back from a work trip; my mom was leaving out of town the next day…which left Tim and I seeing my entire family but at different points. At least they will all be back when I go in a month for Shamrock half marathon.
Question for you:
What is something you will budget for?
I will always save to go out to eat. It’s my weakness, I love restaurants.
