it finally happened!!!

the weekend was exactly what i expected it would be: AMAZING!! from the moment i hugged him outside my apartment on thursday night to the sad moment he kissed me goodbye monday afternoon B and i took new york by storm.

there had been so much build up and so much anticipation for this trip that youd never think it could have lived up to it. well it did.  

all of the chemistry i felt over skype was real and even though we hadnt seen each other in over 5 years we hadnt missed a beat. 

those that know me know how i get with boys that mean a lot to me. i tend to push them away a teensy bit as a way to protect myself. its silly really. here is a boy i really like and instead of saying exactly what i really mean + feel, i joke about being really great friends or act standoffish, among other stupid things. i wish i could say i didnt do any of this with B but id be lying. as i think fondly back to the weekend i realize there are so many things i wish i could have done different, said different or acted different. then again, im me and i cant have regrets. i will always make mistakes and just have to hope he can see past it.

there were so many highlights to this past weekend. we saw roddick win at the us open (in his last tournament EVER), went to a yankees game, had a hilarious time getting drunk together and reminisced about our friendship and how cool it is that weve stayed so close. i found myself looking at him with such comfort and fondness throughout the 4 days, it was really quite cute. i think he is a fantastic, truly awesome dude and i am so lucky he came to visit. i woke up on monday feeling low knowing he only had a few precious hours before he had to leave. i have such love for him, its a pretty special bond we have. heres to the future...not sure whats in store, but i know its going to be great. 

a few of my fave random pics from the weekend.

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 :)
