How is your weekend going so far?
Mine is great – and I’m so excited to have tomorrow off, too, before I start my new job Tuesday!
Yesterday was a jam packed day: I went to the gym and stupidly took 2 spin classes, and crashed hard during the 2nd. Note to self: bring Gu or Sports Beans next time if doing a double.
Then I showered up and headed out to my friend’s brother’s recovery party. My friend, Chris, and I have known each other since college. We even ran our first marathon together in 2004!
Unfortunately, Chris’s 29 year old brother suffered a severe stroke at Thanksgiving. He is in recovery and doing as well as can be expected, but it’s still heartbreaking to see someone so young go through this. In any event, it was great to catch up with Chris and see lots of my college friends.
Then I went to church unfortunately for the first time since Christmas with my sister and her family. They took me out to dinner to Cheeseburger in Paradise to celebrate my new job!
Have you ever eaten at Cheeseburger in Paradise? It’s one of those places that I love for the atmosphere, and the drinks food is pretty good, too. Makes you feel like you’re on a tropical vacay even though piles of snow await you outside the door.
P.S. How cute is Reid’s jacket????!
The best presents of all were the sweet cards I received from Reese and Ryan:
Don’t you love my red dress? But I’m wondering why I have gray hair.
Isn’t that the sweetest message she wrote? What a smart 6 year old!
Now I’m not one of those who gets all into the Oscars – I don’t have enough patience to watch them, but I do always get excited about the winners! Especially this year, because I’ve seen “The King’s Speech” and LOVED it. Okay, so I really love Colin Firth….
….but, still. He’d better win.
Do you watch the Oscars? Anyone you’re rooting for tonight?
And I will annouce the BSI winner later tonight!
