the busiest week everrrr

no, your eyes aren’t deceiving you — yes, i really am posting two days in a row! boom. totally not sure what’s gotten into me but i’m digging this lil burst of consistency here and hoping it means December is getting me into the spirit (or something like that? that expression just seems to fit for anything that happens in December so let’s roll with that).

meanwhile, please enjoy the view of a white December in upstate NY, aka my lovely life last weekend:

visitors welcome. as long as you’re cute and fun and want to play with me in the snow.

right, so, blogging. i think what happens is that i sometimes feel like i’m just not sure i have so much interesting stuff to say, and a blog needs to be interesting (right?!), so if i’m not super killing the running or taking these amazingly annoying workout selfies (sorry not sorry, this is a running/healthy living blog so you’re stuck with those!), that i just kinda fall by the wayside.

but really, i need to get over myself and just write write write, no matter what comes out, because that’s the whole point. and if some days all i have to post is lil note to tell you all how fabulous you are and how much i adore your faces, and then add a cute/funny/random picture i like, well, that’s what it is.

oh, and btw, since i didn’t run this morning, here’s a cute/funny/random picture i like:

photoOH and Luna is promoting its new gluten free flavors and we all can reap the benefits by receiving a freebie of their new Peanut Caramel Cluster flavor! yummm.

so now, let’s talk about the fact that i was fun last night, especially for a Monday! i met a friend at an awesome rooftop bar called Upstairs at the Kimberly Hotel in Midtown East. i’ve only been here during the summer before, when this place is guaranteed to be squashed beyond all squishing crowded any day after work. i much preferred it during the off-season, when it’s covered and quieter and cozy and quaint and so, so lovely.

they give you these darling little paper bags of popcorn (that was lightly garlicky), and i had an amazing rose that i must find again. i deem this the absolute perfect after-work place in the colder weather, to escape the crowds and get some lovely views of the city.

still considering that career change to an iPhone photographer, don’t you worry. portfolio available upon request.

this is going to be a crazy good and insanely busy week — here’s my lineup:

Tuesday (tonight): final grad class of the semester (woot!)
Wednesday: going away drinks for a co-worker and/or an after-work workout
Thursday: annual work holiday party (the biggest event i plan and work all year) followed by THIS exciting life event: going to see my new music obsesh w/ one of my besties at Terminal 5!

Friday: a friend’s annual charity holiday party — his fam owns a restaurant in NYC near Bloomingdales and he provides all food & drinks, and us lucky guests get in for the price of one toy, which all get donated to Toys for Tots. love this spin on a reason to celebrate the season.
Saturday: Christmas shopping and another girlfriend’s holiday party at night

tis the season to be SO BUSY! & lovin’ it.

Tell me something you’re looking forward to this week!
Any good Christmas parties coming up?
