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 :).......

march madness

i have come to find the madness of life happens far beyond march. that said, when we really think about it, lifes madness is a gift, right? i mean that in a "take the good with the bad" kind of way, not so much that i love the madness.

i live in madness. all the time. i love so many things about NYC - but sometimes, those same things are the things that sending me screaming into my pillow or heading out of town at a moments notice.

take this past weekend. i had had enough of NYC - sleepless nights, work stress and a nagging running injury. it was one of my best childhood friends birthdays, so i hopped on a train for a 3.5 hour ride to newport for an incredible night filled with endless prosecco and bread, birthday cake and wonderful memories and laughs, i returned to NYC 24 hours later (after a 5 hour wi-fi less ride) a better person. sure, the ride back was brutal - but the sore abs and messy hair reminded me that it was exactly what life is about.

madness, baby. may it las…

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 :)
