So Much Life!

Do you ever feel like when it rains, it pours?

This post is actually about a lot of life events pouring in (nothing bad though).  On top of work, I’ve crammed my schedule with multiple diner dates with friends and family. I feel like NJ doesn’t have enough diners or meals lately.  I don’t mind though.

Where have I been? 

On Monday night Tim and I celebrated all the major holidays (Christmas, New Years and his birthday). Since we were given about a week before he left, we didn’t have a lot of time to make plans (READ: Christmas Shop).  We made the best of another unexpected situation and went out for dinner and relaxed together.   It was a lot of fun.

I was upset we had a week of notice but after putting it into perspective this is a better time (versus in a few months), I’m doing a lot better.  It ensures he won’t be done for our wedding in the Spring (and could possible be there for some events too).  We dressed up and I even got to wear my “no secrets” dress. In college, my housemate and I nicknamed it the “No secrets dress”. It’s so tight you can’t hide anything in that dress.

Then Tuesday we had a work party. We did a secret Santa type of deal. I ended up with a party of the pounds DVD by Richard Simmons. I think it’s hilarious and will have to play it when I need a good LOLZ. I will record my moves obviously.  Here is a link to a youtube version (nonsponsored).

On Wednesday I got dinner at the Westmont diner with Liz. Liz Is a local fast runner and I always enjoy seeing her. I felt like it’s been so long!  Please nevermind that I look like a straight up bum and Liz looks so nice…but you get the point.  😉

Then yesterday my parents came into town. They are heading up to the New York city this weekend. As much as I wanted to join them, I am working.  It was great to see them yesterday evening.  I will get to see them for both Christmas and New Years so I have no complaints from that.  I should have gotten our waiter to take a photo!  Oh well, I have blogging failed.

Questions for you:

What have you been up to this week?

What are your weekend plans?

No racing for me, just working and hopefully doing a long run.

  1. Oh stop you looked adorable! And it was SO great to see you! Also: the coffee was delicious 🙂 🙂 🙂

  2. I love your dress! It looks like you’ve had some fun times lately and I’m glad you and Tim got to spend some quality time together before the deployment.

  3. I’m starting vacation until January 6th Woo-hoo! Weekend plans are to get as much done as possible so I have nothing pressing next week.
    My web site needs a ton of work, so I’ll be at the keyboard as usual!
    Happy Holidays – Andy

  4. It’s so unfortunate that Tim has to be away for this time. You guys are such a strong couple (and he must be very trusting to let you handle ALL the wedding plans!) That dress is super cute! I find that with my looooong legs ANY dress becomes a “No Secrets” dress. Tomorrow I’m planning on going to a rutabaga curling competition at my farmer’s market. No idea what I am in for 🙂

  5. You two look so cute. I love that dress. I’m sorry he has to go away, but time will go by so fast and he’ll be back before you know it.
