best friends and best gifts

i got my last bachelorette gift!

it’s a collage of my friends who celebrated my bachelorette party with me!  while there are some very-awesome friends who did not get a picture on the collage, it makes me sooooo happy to see so many lovely faces in one spot.

time goes by so quickly… i can’t believe some of these pics were taken 5+ years ago and it seems like yesterday.

my friends are the very best.

some of you may know… i am obsessed with cupcakes.

and the other day there was a birthday at work and so we had cupcakes… lots of them.  i ate 3.

don’t judge me.

i’m going to start my wedding diet, soon… maybe.  i have a week or so left so i have some time  🙂

it’s always good to be a part of history.  and, i’m not going to lie, i’m thrilled that it will still be president obama for the next four years.

i run for chocolate


me, tim, and 40k other runners or so were willing to wake up before dawn to run a 5k/15k… all in the name of chocolate.

although i’m semi-injured and was pretty grumpy about waking up at 4:45am, i soon snapped out of my less-than-pleasant mood when i realized i friggen LOVE running events.  nothing better than tens of thousands of runners running 9.3 miles before noon… right?!

plus, i got fondue at the finish.

ducky halloween!


there’s  a new puppy in the family!

(you may remember a few days ago i mentioned my mom was going to bring over her new puppy.  well, she did and monte met the rest of our four-legged friends.  it was quite the  reunion with my dog, brian’s dog, and mom’s dog!)

anyway, monte was a duck for halloween.

i don’t even need to tell you how friggen adorable he was.
