It's My Birthday...

Well it's official, I'm 28 now!
I am not sure how I feel about being another year older but I have to say I am extremely happy with where I am in life at 28 years old. Joe and I seem to be thriving in New York and life just seems to be getting better and better. I can't tell you how difficult or stressful it was creating a new life here on the east coast but for the first time I can say that most things have returned to normal. There will always be challenges you face in life but the challenges we are experiencing now are not in result of our move or past in California. This is the third summer I will spend in New York and it seems normal. I spent my first Mother's Day and Parent's Birthdays away for the FIRST time this month and that was a challenge in itself but I am lucky enough to have them both visit this spring/summer.

For my birthday this year I wanted to skip the whole thing but after receiving a large kick in the rear by my husband and co-workers I decided on a BBQ. We had the BBQ this past weekend and spent the day celebrating and hanging out with our closest friends. Last year my birthday was a complete and utter disaster and as a result I was hesitant to try to set anything up. I am very thankful I allowed my husband and co-workers to talk me into it.

Cheers to another year!

101 Things in 1001 Days: #58 - Go to the Gym 100 Times

Slowly but surely I am getting there:

Please excuse the big gap towards the end of the month. We had visitors and I had more important (and fun) things to do than go to the gym!

Summing Up The Last Month

I am BACK by popular request :)

Recently I have been getting requests to blog, blog, blog. I thought now would be a great time to get back into the swing of things. I'll give you a little update on the last month and then share a few blog posts that go further into fun details. So lets see, where to start:

  • I saw my 2nd Broadway Play
  • I had a week long vacation from work
  • I have some exciting news brewing regarding my education
  • My DAD and Julie came to visit
  • The Husband is planning a Birthday BBQ for me (I turn 28 on Monday the 19th!)
  • I have been really good at getting to the gym
  • I spent Easter with family out of state
  • We will be having an unexpected visitor in the next two weeks
  • I am still a full 10 pounds lighter than I was when I started eating Paleo

That is all that I can think of at the moment but be sure to check back for more interesting and detailed posts!
