Day 1

I've started my training program for my half marathon that I'm running April 29th.  Two months to the date...  I've got a lot of work to do!  I was totally not feeling it tonight either.  I got home from work, watched Grey's and passed out for an hour and a bit (whoops), then headed to piano and the grocery store.  It seemed like I'd already made up my mind about not going, but as I drove home, I thought, "FORGET THIS!  It's day one!  What are you DOING?!" so I unpacked the groceries, got my gear on and hit the roads.  Thanks to those who shoveled...  which was few and far between.  Soaker centrale!  And worth every second!!

Love and inspiration!

Besties Rule!

I'm so very lucky to have so many amazing people in my life who inspire me and spread joy every single day.

This is a shout out to you, Brendon!  Thanks for always listening.

That has, by far, been one of the best vacations of my life!  There are so many things to be happy for that it would be impossible to list the inside jokes, the laughter, the joy of the sun, the vitamin d absorption, the dancing, the acting like idiots, the photoshoots, the a la carte mishaps, the pizzeria, the slime fruit...  The Dominican is absolutely beautiful and the people are fabulous (minus one crank of a bartender)!

I can say without a doubt that I would, in a heartbeat, run for my life back to that country.  Gorgeous.

Much love!

I leave for the Dominican on Sunday!!!  Yay!!  Words cannot express my excitement for this much needed and much looked forward to break.

Have an amazing family day and a super week!  I'll be back on the 28th to update.

Much love, happiness and all that jazz!

Tonight, I made it to an hour straight of running...  That's the longest I've ever gone!  I actually have decided that I want to run in a half marathon.  There's one in April in Elmira and I think I'm going to go for it!  With Brendon's help and advice (thanks for volunteering and you don't know it yet!), I hope to set a fairly rigorous schedule to get myself on track.  I won't lie, I'm really, really excited and I'm thankful for something to look forward to at a time when I so desperately need it.

Can't stop, won't stop!

Apples, sunbutter and raisins.  It changed from the original, but I had to modify it.

Love and light!

Puppy Love

I took a picture of Caysee and I and instagrammed it, labeling it "If Caysee is the last love of my life, I'm okay with that" (or something along those lines).  And I am.

Love and dogs, always!

Lasagna Love

Why can I not cook more?  I wish I had more time and I wish I had the motivation to do it...  My cooking RULES. I just made some lasagna and loved the shit out of it!  So did B-tran; amazingness at its finest.

Love and health!

How Embarrassing!

There's an hour to kill between Vampire Diaries and Grey's Anatomy on Thursdays.  I watched...  wait for it...  American Idol.  FML and kill me now because I LIKED it! AHHH! I will not watch it again (likely), but I did truly enjoy it. Though, I do not overly enjoy that I so thoroughly enjoyed it.  I have less shame admitting I LOVE Jersey Shore! 

Gotta love Thursday night tv!
Much love!

Tofurkey Pizza

I'm not usually one to love the meat substitutes, but holy mother of pearl, the Tofurkey Pepperoni Pizza is pretty much to die for.

I ate an entire one for dinner...  Sorry I'm going to be in a bathing suit in 11 days!

Love and happiness!

2 For 1

Oops!  I somehow forgot to post yesterday...  I think the exhaustion and monotony of full-time work and studying got to me and I was in bed, reading, by 8:30 last night.  That was totally my victory then.

TODAY was wow!  I've been so stressed about this silly history mid-term that I was letting it run my life and how I feel about being school...  to the point where I started questioning why I was even bothering!  Walking out of the mid-term tonight, I was like, THAT is why I'm in school - to rock those tests, to really understand how things work and to care enough about myself to keep learning.  I'd been guilt-eating (aka BINGE) during studying (I had the worst sweet tooth craving/give in), so I was extra inspired to run tonight.  For the second time this week, I've run for 40 minutes!  Yay, me! 

I just have one more mid-term to go and then I'm FREEEEEEEE.  Dominican in 12 days!  WOW.  I can't wait!

Much love and learning always!

The Heart of BLC Lexington

What should be such a terrible day, ended up being one that was so surrounded in love, it was hard to believe it was even real.  I know I posted a blog entry not that long ago about the girls I work with, but, wow.  The love that emanated out of my staff today (two of them having today as their last day) was unbelievable.  Where I thought there would be ugly crying, non-stop inability to comfort each other or the children and/or craziness that was unable to bear, there wasn't.  There was a mutual love and respect for each other in acknowledging how much each of us has grown, how we have all benefited from being in each other's lives and how lucky the children are to have this type of positive influence in their lives.  I am truly BLESSED to work where I do and with the people I do.  I know Monday will bring a world of change, but I am so confident in our abilities to use the strength of our support system that I can't imagine exists in any other work place.

Thank you, Tracy, Lynn Anne, Christy, Vickie and Sarah - my life would not be what it is without you in it.  Though we hear this (and maybe not always genuinely), I hope you know it rings true when I tell you that I love you all from the bottom of my heart.  Thank you for a beautiful day and thank you in advance for the amazingness I know that this night will bring.

Kristen Bell and the Sloth

Honestly, this is so ridiculous that it made me cry, but it did.

Kristen Bell and the Sloth

It's nice to know I'm not the only over-emotional wreck for no reason on the planet.

Love and happy tears!

It takes a lot to get me emotional (total lie), but I just watched last night's episode of Glee and bawled my eyes out.  There were SO many amazing moments!  I am so glad I am hooked on this show.  It's empowering and anti-bullying and full of so much love all the time.  LOVE IT!

Love and GLEE (in that title voice)!
