let’s recap a few things…since i’ve pretty much been a horrible blogger lately and totally neglecting this lil space!
*running. ok, so this is going semi-well, but i’m not exactly killing it lately. it’s been super cold here — thankfully, that seems to have broken today, so i’m hoping to run outside tonight — so i’ve been dating the treadmill, which isn’t my fave. i got in a few 3-5 milers last week and then an 8-miler on Saturday morning (all on the treadmill), then rested yesterday (aka didn’t leave my bed all day). i’m hoping i can do this half in a few weeks, but i definitely am not very prepared, so we’ll see how it goes.
*celebrating. i love parties. i love birthdays. i love a good excuse to dress up and go out. i am obsessed with my girlfriends.
add all of these things together, and Saturday night was a smashing success in celebrating one of my close friend’s birthdays.
there was pink champagne & pink cake (made by me! i’m not a sweets person but love to bake for other people); sequins & sparkly personalities & dancing at Mister H in the Mondrian SoHo, where we celebrated another one of my girls’ birthdays just last month. it’s such a good party spot — not too clubby, but somewhere between clubby and loungey — and always so much fun.
ummm so if you haven’t seen Chris D’Elia’s skit “Drunk Girls,” do yourself a favor and watch it right now. like, right right now.
all sorts of hilarity.
*writing. someone just pay me to sit around and write little snippets all day, please? mmmkay.
*inspiration. because i don’t know about you, but i certainly can’t be reminded of these things enough…and feeling it today, especially. even when you know life is beautiful & amazing & wonderful, it’s so easy to get caught up in our own heads and let the world beat us down, for a million little reasons that seem like such formidable giants at the time.
positive words can do so much to renew our soul. sometimes, i forget where my hope lies; i forget to just be still, and trust that God has much bigger plans for me than i could ever imagine or devise on my own. it’s easy to let your focus slide, and lately, i’m feeling like i could use a recharge.
hope your week starts off well, friends.
