Holy crap, there is a LOT going on!

Last summer was a whirlwind of weddings, and this summer is a whirlwind of BABIES!  Between babies being born, showers, announcements, etc, i am starting to be concerned that there is something in the water!

This weekend i got to celebrate my good friend Tammy's soon to be baby boy!

Obviously, she is the pregnant one :)
It doesn't hurt that they lured me there with my own personal pie.  Miniaturizing desserts so that i can eat them in entirety all by myself is a one way ticket straight into my heart!

Don't be too concerned though, as there are no plans for baby foxes in the near future.  I can't even take care of myself!

I am also now just two months away from my very first international trip!  We have booked all our rooms, flights, cars, and everyone has their passports, thanks to my diligent badgering.  I am seriously ready to burst with excitement for the Dublin Marathon, and the whole trip in general.  Can you believe my brother has never been on a plane??

You gotta hand it to the kid, he's brave!  I cried the entire time on my first flight.  Also, i was 23.  My poor mom is going to need to sedate us both.

You also may have noticed my sucking at blogging lately.  I have a lot on my plate in the upcoming weeks!  First, i have been running a lot!  The weather has been beautiful!  I can't get enough.  I just want to run all the time.  I even finally got this kid to start his marathon training.  You know, with 8 weeks to go....
Thats Aaron, one of my best friends, who will be running the Chicago Marathon this year for the Red Cross, his very first!

And lastly, i have 26 days until the Chicago Half Marathon!  That means i need to do some serious work if i want to meet my time goal, as well as the fact that i am slammed with Team Run for HD tasks!  Running a charity team is seriously a lot of work!  I can't wait until i cross the finish line, and take a deep breath of relief!  Stay tuned, because i have 8 million bajillion charity events for the team between now and race day.

And seriously, if you are running for a charity, thank your coordinator!  It's no easy job!


  1. This cool weather is Mom Nature's prank on me cuz I can't run. So you're welcome. Yay for Dublin! One of my favorite cities. You'll love it!

  2. Dublin marathon sounds like it would be so freakin much fun!

  3. I am still loving your haircut. :)

  4. First of all you have the best style! Love your sundress- it is super cute. Secondly I can't believe you get to run the Dublin marathon. That will be an awesome experience. I hope that your brother survives his first flight, but he should be fine. He is pretty brave for making his first flying adventure an international one. :-)

  5. Hooray Hooray Hooray! I am SOOOO jealous about the Dublin Marathon, I can't even begin to describe it. Someday, SOMEDAY, I will move to Ireland. I will!

    I had actually registered for the Rock N Roll Dublin this year but they ended up canceling it.

    You are going to have such an awesome time. I could talk about Ireland for HOURS, so if you need any advice, let me know!

    Also, I would love to see every single photo you take. I don't care if it's of people I don't know. I want to live vicariously through you.

    Good luck!!!!!


  6. Look at you looking all cute at that baby shower. I just want to pick you up and put you in my pocket.

    Can you wear an american flag costume when you run the dublin marathon?!
