Hey all, remember me?! I have been slightly MIA this week since life and my job are SO busy. I think I even went a day or two without tweeting anything... that's got to be a record. It's what I like to call 'concert season' right now at work. Last week we hosted the AllStar concert, this week it's Luke Bryan and next weekend it's a two-day Jazz festival put on by Macy's. Whew! The hours are long, especially this week and it's taken a toll on me. I go to bed every night and feel like my alarm is buzzing two seconds later. The concert is tomorrow and I'll be working a solid 12-hour day so I'm already dreaming about a good Sunday nap ;)
But enough rambling- just thought I'd share a few quick things that haven't made it to the blog! Last weekend in addition to the AllStar fun we had, we attended a backyard wedding reception of one of Jared's good friends. He and his wife got married in Hawaii and hosted a big party here for everyone- it was a blast! Their parents backyard is officially my dream land. Covered patio with TVs, an in-ground pool, beautiful landscaping- yes, please.
-- I feel like I've been doing a great job on my goals for this month, despite the busy schedule. Jared and I have worked out together a lot the past couple of weeks and it feels so nice to have a routine again. I missed lifting weights, I really do enjoy it! Plus we've been walking a lot after dinner which I love. I don't love how bugs seem to eat me up no matter what type of bug repellent I wear-- any tips??
-- My camera and I have been practicing a lot lately as well. I've always loved taking photos and think I have a decent eye for it, but there is obviously ALWAYS tons to learn and improve on. Practice practice practice- that's all I can do! I took my nice camera downtown to a new park area and got some great shots the other day- I might just frame a couple of these. I love the bridge in the background on the one!
