Are you guys impressed that this is my 4th blog post this week!? I'm impressed with myself because it has been a while since I've done regular blogging. Hopefully I can keep it up for a while. I have a relaxing weekend ahead with lunch plans and not too much else. . . hopefully I can be productive to get a few projects done. I want to join the YMCA too so hopefully I'll make it over there this weekend. Now to my recent favorites!
Kate and I saw the movie Unbroken and it was really good but the best part was the seats. We had recliners seats and we weren't even in the "lux" section. Um. . . yes please!!! This just might be my new favorite movie theatre.
I call this "the many faces of Gabriel." At 6 weeks old this little guy has quite the assortment of facial expressions! I was trying to get a good one of him smiling and caught all these funny ones in the process.
My Aunt Cathy gave me this necklace for Christmas and I love it! She always picks things up on her travels so I had an assortment of gifts from different places. This is from Cape May!
Emily and Joe's families threw them an engagement party a couple of weeks ago. It was really more of an opportunity for both extended families to meet since so many people were home for the holidays. It was a nice get together and her Bachelorette Party is less than a month away! Can't wait for a girls' weekend in Vermont. Then her Bridal Shower is on my birthday! :)
Holy cuteness! Wrangler!!!! I'm totally obsessed with The Today Show's new puppy that will be trained to be a service dog. I'm already following him on twitter along with 11.5k other people and you should too (@wranglertoday)! The videos on the website are adorable and I just want to cuddle him. For those of you who may not know I started and run the therapy dog program at my hospital and I love it! I love the use of dogs for therapy and/or as service animals. So I think this is great that so much awareness will be raise about these programs. It costs a ton of money to train a service dog so more awareness will likely lead to more donations for these programs. Oh and I totally voted for the name Wrangler and think it is adorable that Carson keeps calling him "Wrangles!"
I organized FIVE years worth of Christmas cards tonight and it feels so good to finally have them organized!!!! Three years worth have literally been sitting on my desk in a messy pile forever. All I did was hole punch the corner of each card and use a key ring (one that opens - bought a pack at Staples). So easy and now they area all organized!
This week I got the itch to go somewhere. January is a tough month. You have the let down after all of the holiday excitement and it is cold. Very cold and gray. So I needed some sun and I need a "vacation" to look forward too. Since I really can't afford a fancy vacation right now the next best thing is visiting my friends in CA. I was able to score a great price on a direct flight in and out of Long Beach (which is so much easier than LAX and 5 minutes from my friend's house). So the trip is booked. It is a quick trip but it will be a nice break!
