life is beautiful

i am updating my blog while rocking out to a mix of john mayer, eve 6 and guster. totally bringing me back to high school summers, and fun nights with my faves...a perfect setting to blog!

lets see here...i am busy whoring out my resume to e.v.e.r.y.o.n.e in new york. ive got a couple things im really hoping for, so if/when i hear anything i will share. (please, GOD, if youre reading this...!). this warm weather solidifies how much i think the city will be good for me. mom, gamma and i went out to lunch, got ice cream and went for a fun! days like that are so great. (except...the more i think about it, that pint of java ice cream and box of cookies i pounded was...well, absolutely necessary. and i stand by it. hahaha). i noticed today that there opening a new restaurant called "hot diggity dog"...god, how id love to take dad there. hot dog paradise.

a guy friend of mine asked me out to lunch last night (for today), but got wasted and called me at 3pm today apologizing that he had just gotten up. hahahahah i love him, but that is just ridiculous. i tried calling him at noon, he didnt pick up, so i went with mom and gamma. we are guilty of that behavior still too, so i find it funny. so, lunch another day :) haha. only now i have a reason to make him pay, right?! :):)

cant wait to plan the trip to SF when drew gets back from italia. made a deal with uncle dwight that we will be wearing stanford tshirts. he donated money with that as the catch. i think its hilarious, and the perfect cherry on top for this trip. just perfect.

visited dads site the other night. i needed a little chat with him. with the weather being so nice and warm, and the flowers blooming, it was beautiful. i just cant believe he is no longer with us. i really hope i find a guy like him someday. i really do. i hate to say it, but i wish my last boy had worked out better. ohh grr. the thing that truly kills me is that hes ok with never talking to me again. i just wish it wasnt/isnt that easy for him. my feelings were real...what the hell. i just hope i meet someone like dad. he was so special.

happy memorial day! more updates tomorrow :).......

summer OUT / fall IN

And just like that, summer sixteen is over. Hello fall! While I love nothing more than heading out for some miles in the kind of weather that makes it hard to breathe, makes you sweat more than you thought was humanly possible and leaves you a bit red in the face, I equally love the crispness of fall mornings, the smell of fall in the air and apple picking!
Ok, I’ve never actually gone apple picking. I’ve dreamed about it. Glanced at pictures of it. Hoped I would do it. Friends never seemed to want to go – and the boyfriend thing has been a fleeting item on the to-do list. Well, its happening this weekend! Sunday. Sinuses, weather, and whatever else, keep it together. This girl wants to go apple picking! 
Fall sixteen has already gotten off to a busy – and celebratory – start. Mom and bill got married (!!!) which made me really emotional and nostalgic. It was a beautiful weekend and definitely cemented how much I want a love of my own. Been a tough go though – I mean, its supposed to …

2013: a year in review. so far

today is february 22nd.we are already almost 2/12 of the way through 2013. i realize that line may sound uber cheesy, but seriously, time fucking flies.

2013 has definitely been a cool year. hard, confusing, sad and stressful, but certainly cool. parts of it have also been special, funny, amazing and sweet. all of that emotion in 2 months? hey man, im a girl. were dramtaic.

ive got high hopes for the rest of the year. there are a few running races in the books, with more to be added im sure. there will be some heading to see my besties in chicago and boston and bro in NC to name a few. im hoping there is a trip to somewhere warm in the near future...i have no interest in resembling a vampire...that shit has been overexposed already.

the moment hasnt happened to me yet where i go to my bank account and theres an accidental million dollars. regardless i take my dads advice to heart..."hil, never miss an opportunity you really want simply because of money". look, i…

break a sweat - even when youd rather do ANYTHING but.

there is only one way to begin the difficult journey of the holiday sugar detox: break a sweat. 

miraculously i didnt miss a day over the holidays to break a sweat -- but that really just means i got up extra early or ran when people were napping (i.e. full and feeling gross) so not all of my holiday miles or squats were pretty. or felt particular good.

BUT, i laced up and got out there -- or followed along to a dailyburn workout. i kept telling myself i could slow down or take it easier, but shit, im doing a workout.

so basically, what they say is true. no matter how slow you go, youre still lapping everyone on the couch. go get in a good sweat, then reward yourself with some couch time :)
