What I Have Been Up To Monday, Dec 31 2012 

Happy NYE. I must admit though I prefer low key New Year Eves. This year especially since I am getting over a stomach bug. The two big events that took place since my last post is 1) buying a house 1 month before my 26th birthday and 2) taking another trip to Alaska to spend Christmas there!

Since it is New Years here are my resolutions for 2013- hopefully I can keep them (I don’t have the greatest track record):

Resolutions
1) Adopt a vegan diet
2) Complete all 3 races of the Louisville Triple Crown of Running
3) Do yoga at least once a week
4) Blog regularly- at least 3 times per week
5) Read one book for fun each month that is not related to my work or profession

It’s been a long time Sunday, Oct 28 2012 

I have been absent for quite a while but things have been as busy as always. I left off with the end if summer and returning from my trip to Alaska. Well I just got back from ANOTHER trip. My school was on fall break and I took advantage of getting to visit my Sis and brother-in-law. On this trip there was a new little lady to visit -my niece Emma. At 6 weeks old she has quite the personality and meeting her might just be the happiest moment of my life.

In other news work has been very busy and stressful but I try and take it a day at a time and focus on the positives instead of the negatives though sometimes it is hard.

I have also started the home-buying process and should have good news on Monday afternoon!

So Much Fun Tuesday, Apr 10 2012 

I have been having so much fun lately and have been enjoying my spring break.

What I have been up to:

1) I caught up with a friend at 60 West over martinis. We were there for 4 hours and I tried 3 different flavors. My favorite one tasted like a slightly sweet lemonade. Good food and dessert was shared.
2) I have discovered peanut butter on toast with maple syrup is delicious.

3) I got a new cookbook for $16

4) I visited my favorite coffee shop in Lexington, Common Grounds, where I spent many hours over my 6 years in Lexington

5) Smoked salmon cream cheese is a good topper for bagels

6) I am not a fan if milkshakes but fancy coffee drinks are right up my ally

7) I ate at The Pub when I was in Lexington to celebrate my friend’s birthday. Unfortunately they don’t have sweet potato fries anymore.
8) Tomorrow I am going to try and convince myself to do stuff for work…any suggestions to help my motivation over break?
