Christmas Lists

Do you guys still put a pony on your Christmas list? 

Mine has evolved... But it's really the same thing. 

PS -- I love how he just comes right out and tells me he won't get me my pony!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!!

I hope your weekend is filled with family, food, and laughter!

Husband and I are earning our turkey this year.  It's been a long few months, of eating the same dang thing every Friday before our long runs and never sleeping in.  I really do mean never.

It's over though!  By the time you read this I'll be finishing up or done! 

Pictures to come!

Can we talk about this?  
I am on the fence about my feelings
someone help me decide.

I feel it is important to raise money for any sort of health issue...

but I also feel mustaches are supremely creepy things.

Even George looks a bit creepy with the stache. 
I am, however, completely OK with the new fad to have fake handlebar mustaches... 
does this make me a hypocrite? 
I think I'm OK with it anyway.

It is done

That's right!  I've been wanting to share this with all of you for WEEKS!!!  Husband and I have decided that I should pursue my passion, not to mention I was offered a snazzy partnership at the event coordinating firm I've been working with.  SO -- I quit my day job today. 

This doesn't mean I don't show up tomorrow.  I gave 5 weeks notice.  So I'll be finishing out the year with my current employer, but it feels like a weight has been lifted.  My boss knows, so I can tell my bleeps now!

I will truly be sad to leave my position, but I am very excited about what this opportunity holds.  After all, not everyone gets to say they've got their DREAM JOB!  Starting in January I will move into a full time position as a partner in one of the top 3 event coordinating firms in Atlanta.  Until then I'll be balancing giving my current position all it deserves throughout the day and meetings on nights and weekends for the firm. 

It will be a busy few weeks, but it will definitely all be worth it!

So there you have it, the reason for my silence.  Every time I've gone to post anything for the last few weeks I've just wanted to tell you all about this.... now I can, and I did, and we'll get back to our regularly scheduled randomness tomorrow. :-)

PS:  If you know anyone in the Atlanta area that's looking for a job as an Executive Assistant/Office Manager (plus many other roles) please let me know... but only if they're awesome... I have little time and need a super awesome person to take my place!

I Confess Monday

I Confess...I'm going to skip right over the fact that I posted nothing last week. 

I confess I am sad today.  Something was supposed to happen and it didn't.  

I confess I  went bowling for the first time in years this weekend and I liked it! #nerd

I confess I have a particular ritual every time I go to bowl... seriously, who wants my cool card? 

I'm linking up with Carissa for her Monday I Confess series.  What do you confess this week??

So What Wednesday!!

So What if:

  • I have a love hate relationship with running... I hate the act, love the results
  • I have spent $1300 on new phones for my boss in the last 2 weeks... I'm hoping to return $600 worth at least.
  • Our dogs are never going to get along.  

  • Daisy woke us up at 3AM puking up dog toy
  • I am in denial that tomorrow I will wake up and run 13.1 miles.... no.big.deal.
That's all for today folks!

Have a very Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

TGIF Ya'll!!!!!


Were did the week go?? Seriously, I remember Monday, I remember thinking "wow, this week is going to be tough" and I remember Tuesday thinking "It should be Friday by now"  and then the rest is a blur. SO with that, I have almost nothing to write to you about.... So I wanted to share some random thoughts from the week:

1) If anyone ever types Friday three times consecutively do you automatically start singing the Black Eyed Peas in your head?  No? Just me?

2) In honor of Halloween, I've eaten a Reese's every day this week... just one... but could there be a more perfect taste than that?  Well, that or white chocolate covered pretzels....I need the molecular structure of these two things to change so they're as healthy as spinach.

3) Eating chocolate is good for you.  Apparently, I just skipped over the DARK chocolate part... Reeses needs to make DARK chocolate peanut butter cups

4) Did ya'll know milk has pus in it... so gross.  Raven did an awesome post on the benefits of being a vegetarian... I've been thinking about this for a long time, but this really makes me want to do a meatless day each week.... I wonder how that will go over with Husband.  Husband, are you reading? What do you think?

5) I've been in denial about the cold weather.  I feel like I was truly not ready for it this year... I want to fly away to someplace warm and sit on a beach and really take it all in... build a sand castle. You know, act like I'm 5, and on a beach, but not 5, because I'll be enjoying some cocktails.

6) My mom comes home next week from Argentina.  I'm SUPER pumped to see her... not so pumped to give her car back.  I took it again for one last round this week... I have to give it back this weekend ... bye bye SUV :-(

7) I have to run 11 miles this weekend on my training plan.  Do ya'll know how far 11 miles is?? It's a crazy long run!  Add in a sore hip and an ankle that's been just not right since last weeks run and I'm nervous.... ya'll I was not built as an athlete... I love the feeling when it's over... but going through it sometimes sucks. What do you do to break through your proverbial walls?

8) Would it be wrong to pin my own posts?  I totally want to pin some of my food posts b/c I think they taste so darn good!

9) We went to Blue Ridge a few weeks ago for family filled fun day.  Husband snapped these pics.  It was a beautiful day, if you're in the GA area, you really should go to Blue Ridge for a weekend!  They're the up and coming Highlands of Georgia.  You can rent a cabin here.  They are awesome and have the BEST cabins!!




Have a great weekend!!!  I've got something super fun to tell you... but you'll have to stay tuned!

 Hey Ya'll!!!

Does anyone know where the last week and a half has gone?  I've been so crazy busy I'm not sure I remembered to stop and smell any roses along the way.  I am not lying when I tell you that I had no time -- like I didn't have time to stop at the ATM and deposit checks.  Large Checks. Checks that when I told my Hubby he might have freaked gotten a tad bit upset.

Sorry Husband.

I'm half hoping it slows down, but half not.  Being busy means that weddings are coming in, weddings coming in is awesome.  SO, keep them coming... I'll go to the ATM at midnight if I have to.... I'll just bring the Hubby with me (in case someone tries to rob me of course, not at all because it's cold and dark and I don't want to go alone).

Anywho, let's think back on a simpler time.... 2 weeks ago.

Husband was playing golf with the fellas so I went and met up with my Dad and sister SeesTOR for a fun afternoon in my home town.  I have to say, we never had festivals like this in Dunwoody when I was growing up.  We would go to the neighboring towns and crash their festivals.

Silly festival crashers.

SO now that Funwoody (which we used to say sarcastically) is a city, there are some super fun enhancements... like festivals. With hot cookies, and a bungee jump.

I ran 9 miles this morning... SURE!

Again, 9 miles... I'll eat that sucker up!

SeesTOR asked for extra sauce... she got it all over her mouth with every bite.... I guess I can't use it as blackmail if I'm already posting it.

Who pays $30 for a flying pig??? I took a picture for T-Bear though!

Smallest.Moving.Truck. EVER

This is when I learned it's best to tuck your socks IN to your jeans... and no one is attractive in a harness

Our "Spot" for the day

Waffle got tired and took a nap to the SUPER load music

Family times :-)
Seriously, I'm not sure I would have appreciated it when I was younger, but I'm impressed with my little hometown!  It was a great day, I just wish Husband was there to show us all how it's done on the bungee jump!

Marathon Runner

Not me....

First stop, mile 6
Last Stop -- Mile 21

the Husband.

I am so proud!  He finished in 4:28 and some seconds!!

Here are some pics:
 Daisy had fun running around town demanding letting people pet her
Doesn't she look alert!  (Auntie Kathfryn is holding her)

Atlanta Center for the Puppetry Arts was at our last stop cheering everyone on!

Here he comes on mile 21!  That is not a car accident behind him... 

Daisy made a sign

We made him signs too.
 BeBe brought glitter... you can't see it but these signs are sparkly!

He got a massage after to help with the sore muscles -- look at that face!

And then we ate Five Guys
All in All it was a great day!  We followed Five Guys up with a nap.  Then we had dinner with my grandparents while we skyped my mom in Argentina! 

They were so amazed.  And happy to see their daughter's face.

It was cute.

They always are though!
