we dom (this will continue to make me laugh until the day i die)

this past weekend was AWESOME!!!!. laura, dwight and i drove out to the hamptons fri night, and hilarity insued immediately. one of the best road trips i have had in a long time! i swear, you can see ANYTHING in new york city. so much so, that i feel confident saying that if you havent seen it in nyc, it doesntt exist.

fast forward to arrive in southampton. we had been texting and chatting with everyone en route, so it was fun to finally arrive. we were greeted with the hugest hugs and laughter! and we met baby leroy!!! obsessed.
uncle andy had pizza ordered by the time we arrived so we got right to grubbing. while sitting and eating, we were laughing about so much stuff and having an awesome time. there was a knock on the door so uncle andy went to go answer it. he announced that the pizza guy was back cause he had forgotten to leave one of the pies. dwight was so funny and was like "hope its hawaiian!!" we look up in pizza anticipation and in walks DREW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! the night before uncle andy had emailed me trying to get drew to come surprise mom but when i called him he said no, he just couldnt do it. sneaky boys, very sneaky. of course mom cried. then we ate cupcakes.

the night was spent just enjoying good wine, food, and family. and 6 pounds of hammonds pretzels. this crew can put it away :)

we woke up to fruit and bagels, coffee and puppies!!

just want to give a big THANK YOU to everyone this weekend. had so much fun. writing all the things we did saturday and sunday seems tedious, as i lived it. it was a classic weekend...and i am so happy and thankful to be a part of this family :)

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 travel...im 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 :)
