Isn’t it lovely being a lady?

11 May

I came across this sentiment in one of the blogs that I follow, and couldn’t agree more. Gentlemen, you know I love you but there is seriously something so awesome about being a lady. (And not a woman, because there are far more women than there are ladies.)

This is about all my tired mind can process right now. We have some big news to share next week. I’m looking forward to finally spilling the beans, but for now, I’ll leave you in mystery.

Have a great weekend, enjoy the weather, and don’t forget to kiss your mom on Sunday!


Thankful Thursday

4 May

I am thankful for

My supportive family

New Girl in all of its hysterically awkward cute nerdiness

Natural peanut butter

The plentiful inspiration and projects on ApartmentTherapy’s website

White jeans

That today is actually Friday and that the weekend in only 1 hour and 49 minutes away 🙂

Flyin’ High

1 May

Have I ever mentioned that I am totally obsessed with the flying trapeze?

Well, I am. Completely, totally, head-over-heels (sometimes literally) obsessed.

The addiction started when I treated my bff and I to a lesson as a birthday gift for her. We had heard about classes, so I signed us up. As you can imagine, the adrenaline of jumping off a ledge practically exploded my mind and body. It got easier and easier to make the jump, and by the end of the class, we were racing to sign up for more.

Since then, I’ve been back a number of times. I’m getting better and am always impressed and awed by the skill of so many of the students.

With the insanity and stress of this summer’s workload, I knew that I needed some sort of midweek mental release. After double-checking with my awesome husband, I signed up for an 8-week flying trapeze workshop. It starts tonight and I can’t focus on anything else. As part of the workshop, we’ll be taped (recorded? DVD-ed?) so we can watch ourselves and see what we need to improve upon. If I can somehow figure out how to post them on YouTube, I’ll share my progress with you!

Happy May Day

1 May

On days when I am absolutely crazed at work, it is hard to remember that I am fortunate to have a job. I am grateful to be able to pay my bills without working a second job. And, especially lately, I have been more than overjoyed when the clock hits 4:45 (my company is very understanding of people’s train schedules).

The summer is our busiest time at work. This summer, in particular, will be challenging as we have combined two major departments into one and our responsibilities have essentially doubled.

Why am I telling you this? Basically, I’m just trying to give a long-winded excuse as to why I’ve been so post-less.

Since my last post, some totally rad stuff has happened that I could not be more thankful for:

1. My brother came home from Afghanistan! This deserves so many exclamation points, I’m afraid that I might break the keyboard. He was gone for a year and is home now and it’s awesome.

(After that, everything else seems pretty trivial, so I’ll end the list right there.)

Thanks for being patient with my silence! So many awesome things are out there- I hope that you’ve been enjoying life.
