odds and ends

for starters: the university of arizona wildcats are #1 in the pac-10. suck it stanford!
*lets hope this means that uncle dwight will be padding my pocket with $5 this season. hell yea!! go cats :)

is it just me or has the super bowl lost its oomph? i dont really think the commercials (lets face it, the clear reason we all watch it in the first place) have been that good in the past few years. the half time show has straight up sucked. hopefully itll be fun this year...just chillin with the boys (yea!!!)...but im more excited for that than the actual game. maybe its partly due to the fact that i cant have fun with it with my dad. we cant bet. we cant laugh about it. grr.

how about valentines day?! no boyfriend this year...haha, and we all know how my valentines day went last year: a recap in case you forget --- (hello aaron, sure id love to pay the hotel bill you sent me. yes, absolutely you fucktard). douche.

i have a crush on tons of boys...i flirt all the time and even like to kiss a few...hehe, but no real crush. you know, the kind that really aches your heart. people keep telling me its coming and that im going to get hit over the head with my next one. that, or im marrying craig. we already talked about it, and decided that if hes not married by 28-29 we will marry (i am one year older). he loves the idea. haha, half the battle right?! he told me, "just say the word..."

speaking on aaron, i wanted to update you on the fact that i have not seen him since my birthday (nov. 15th). havent spoken, texted, emailed, facebooked or anything of the like since christmas. funny, huh?! i find it very interesting. i get it...were done dating. i think hes gay. friends and family think hes gay. (or bi, for sure!). but, what i do wish he would have done was call to check in to make sure i was ok in such a new city. check in to find out how we are all doing...with dad, with changes, hows my mom, how am i, do i need anything, can he help. simple things like that. but he doesnt ask. never did. good guy that one ;)

besties ali and katie are planning to come visit soon! god damn itll be great. just amazing. then mom is coming. we havent finalized dates yet, but just knowing its in the pipeline...i love it!!

cant wait to head home...been a long day. happy monday (once again)

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 :)
