Looking Ahead!

2 Feb

sunday jubileehotel

So, it’s Sunday and I’m going to do something new.  I’m going to plan my week ahead of time – I’m gonna MAKE things happen and not just let them happen TO me!! Or something like that 😉

Anyway, tonight is a big night on TV – lots of great new commercials that we’ve all seen on YouTube and Facebook this week will ‘premier’ during a football game. The game itself is supposed to kick off at 6:30 but I imagine coverage will start sometime around 11 tonight…But, our favorite Puppy Bowl starts earlier and runs all day!

I’ve picked up my Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred and let me tell you, I don’t want to EVER go so long without working out again. She is KILLING ME!! But … I’m not dead yet! So my plan this week is to do her Level 1 workout Monday Tuesday and Wednesday morning after taking the Phred for a walk.

This week I’m also going to head back down to Texas for a few days — a couple with my dad and then, over the weekend, a reunion with a few of my sorority sisters! So really excited for this!! I just saw Susie last year when I was in Disneyland for the #DumboDoubleDar and it’s probably been over a year since I’ve seen Ann (who happens to live in Houston so that’s crazy!!) and I haven’t seen Janet since back when Duran Duran were really hot! Unfortunately a couple of the other girls can’t make it but we’ll be doing this again for sure!

Letters from

So today is a day for packing and cleaning and getting ready for the week! And enjoying the spring-like weather outside – though our friend Phil in Punxsutawney says we have 6 more weeks of winter. Some of us say Yay!! Some of us…well, we don’t!

Make this a great Sunday and don’t forget to get out there and


A Reunion

15 Sep

So, after spending several hours running in the heat and humidity, I was going to take a break from the running and parks part of my weekend and just relax with an old friend

Many years ago, in a land far far away…or. Maybe it was just Boulder Colorado…I joined a sorority (Go ADPi! First and Finest) and made lots of great friends. Thanks to the magic of the interwebs, I’ve been able to reconnect with a few special, close friends – and I’ve been even more fortunate to be able to get together with a couple of them in person!

Monday after the Disneyland Half Marathon I had plans to have breakfast with one of these special women– plans were to meet at Downtown Disney La Brea Bakery at 9:30 for our reunion!

When I saw Susie walking up I recognized her immediately! It’s amazing that my friends still look exactly like they did almost 30 years ago!!! (What??!! THIRTY YEARS??!!?? Not possible!!)


Love and loyalty – 30 years later

We started talking and between ordering breakfast (and a reunion celebrating Bloody Mary!), eating, remembering, the morning FLEW by! At one point I remember looking at my phone and seeing that it was nearly ONE O’Clock!! Almost 4 hours we’d been sitting there and there was still so much to talk about!!

Something I’ve learned over the last couple of years, catching up with my old friends, is that deep down what we loved about each other back when we met, what was important to us back then, is still what holds us together. And now I’m eagerly looking forward to the time when we are all together again!

I’ve also learned that there is NOTHING in the world like a hug from an old, dear friend.
