Disclaimer: My pictures are stolen. I fell into the ‘bad blogger’ category this past weekend, taking only one snapshot when we first arrived at the resort in Park City for BLEND.
My hair desperately needs to be washed, my dishes need to be cleaned, the laundry needs to be started, and the closet could probably benefit from some organization. But, tonight, blogging trumps all. By this point in the evening, my thoughts have no common bond. In fact, my internal dialogue goes a little something like this -
Frozen Snickers are so good.
I wonder what Nola is dreaming about right now.
That reminds me of the ‘Tiger Nap’ song in ‘The Hangover.’
Are Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth still engaged?
You get the picture.
Speaking of engaged and pictures, Dan and I just got our engagement pictures.
I don’t know about you, but I am so happy that this off season of the Bachelor/Bachelorette is almost over! Mondays aren’t the same without that relationship drama and the glass, eh, sometimes bottle, of wine that accompany it. You can bet your bottom dollar that come May 20, that show is going to find its way onto my list of ‘little things to love’. Until then, I am loving…..
My dogs. I mentioned in my last post that Dan and I were dog sitting over the weekend. Despite the fact that these boys and girl were the reason for my intermittent sleep, I loved sharing the bed with them.
Registering For Our Wedding. After fueling up with Saturday Brunch, Dan and I went to Bed, Bath, and Beyond to register for our wedding. Registering was definitely one of our favorite wedding related activities. Of course, a fire pit and fondue maker both made their way onto our wish list.
Sunday Funday. We went to a great outdoor bar yesterday for a late lunch and drinks. The weather was amazing. And there was a couple dressed as Batman and Wonder Woman. They took Sunday Funday to a whole new level.
After a Thursday night Happy Hour and staying out past our bedtime, I welcomed the idea of a Friday night in. My parents are out of town for the weekend, so Dan and I are dog sitting – hence the reason I am up before the sunrise, saving pens from being chewed and blankets from being torn. They’re lucky they’re so cute.
Dan and I were planning to rent a movie, but instead flipped channels between ‘Full House‘ and the NFL Draft. My favorite childhood show + my favorite sport = win win.
What a week. I am not sure I have ever clicked refresh so many times on the CNN homepage. Since Monday I have been almost entirely absent from the blog world. My thoughts were in Boston, as I am sure all of yours were as well. And although writing is typically my therapy, the words didn’t come. I instead opted for going out to dinner with my parents, and spending time with Dan and Nola at home. I appreciated the moments that I so often take for granted. I counted my blessings.
Today I am diving back into the blog with a focus on fitness. Last weekend was my inaugural ‘workout in the park’, where I invited friends to come join me for Brooke’s Deck of Cards Workout.
You can only imagine how cool the 6 of us looked doing burpees and the stars that I exchanged for squats. This workout kicked our butts in the best way. I am meeting my friends this morning for our second ‘workout in the park’ and I have yet to decide what that will be, so I should probably get on that.
