Trip Video

Yesterday we both tried to relax after our wonderful trip and get back to stasis.  Our bodies are so confused about when to be hungry and tired (is lunch at 7am now?!).  We really did have a fantastic time (despite some manic moments stuck on the wrong side of the road…literally).  Thank you so much R&P for taking us all the way across the Atlantic!  I am so looking forward to having you as my family.

I can promise you within the next week I will annoy you with thousands of pictures, but for right now here is a quick video I put together yesterday!

England

A little update! We’ve been in England for the past week traveling all around to London, Bristol, Bath, Lymington, and now back to London to finish the trip. There have been quite a few hiccups (popped a tire, stuck on a bus, no trains, lost reservations, and even Rose being hit by a door in the head!) regardless, we have been having a great time!

Here are a few iPhone pics I thought I’d share. Many more to come (and a video too) sometime next week!

Mother’s day

We had a wonderful Mother’s Day as a family at home in Flemington this weekend!  I managed to go to the same grocery store 4 times in 36 hours…amazing. Sunday we had a family breakfast where we all pitched in (except for Mom of course) and then had a relaxing day all together!

i die

Today I got to meet up with my favorite lunch friend of all time.  I have missed her so much since she went to her new job!  It is a beautiful day in NYC we thought so we would have a delicious/horrible for us lunch outside.

We met up in Bryant Park for LT Burger…and oh man, it was unreal.  I do feel like I may die at any moment as I am digesting, but I think it was worth it!

Erin, we will forever eat too much for our bodies to handle…but I’m so happy I can depend on you to do it over and over again with me!

9 years

If there is one thing wedding planning makes you think about it is friends….between invites, the bridal party, bachelor(ette) parties, and every step in between, you are consumed with thoughts of who will be around you.  Point being, I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how lucky I am to have had these (below) absolute crazies in my life for the past 9 years!  Yea, that’s right girls, we met in 2004! AH!

I was looking through old pictures and couldn’t help but share.  Thank God we all look different than we did (I mean for real with the outfits, what were we thinking?!), but more importantly I’m so thankful to still have your friendships.  Girls…we have had so much fun in the past and there’s so so so much more fun to come!  Now let’s enjoy a little walk through the hell that was early college outfits and hair…

(please listen to this list as you flip through pics)

happy

Yea, that isn’t true…I have not been happy this week.  Work has been a bit of a nightmare…ok a lot of a nightmare.  I try not to whine on here, but man, how is it not Friday yet?  And poor Jay has been having a rough one too.  We are both ready for a relaxing weekend together…big time.

Anyways, on weeks like this, where all I want to do is close my eyes and have it all stop, I try to remember everything around me that does make me happy…

(last but not least, the fact that this amazing picture exists and i call this person one of my best friends…my lord…i’m obsessed with this picture)

Here’s hoping today and tomorrow are better than that last two days!
