Spring is in the air!!!

That's right it is going to be in the 60's here in the northeast this week! And I will be sleeping right through it! Although I am in great need of some vitamin D like nobody's business.

This is apparently a heat wave for the likes of New Yorkers, and people are already wearing SHORTS and TANK TOPS with FLIP FLOPS!!! Um 60 is still cold people... Just sayin... 

Happy St. Patty's Day! and Yay for spring!

Just a quick hello!

Hello! I do not have much to update on, or any pictures to share - I'm pretty sure I've been in my pajamas for days!!! All I do is sleep is and work, and if I go out, I go to target - which only takes me 2 min to get to (minimum) I'm usually in my pajamas or scrubs... Some glamorous New York life right!?! I did go to church on Sunday, and I will say that it is highly depressing when you go to get dressed for church and are putting on "real" clothes for the first time in weeks and NOTHING fits!!! I would've shed a small tear but I didn't have time! Maybe I should think more seriously about the half marathon?? I should. It was one of my new year's resolutions, but every time I think about 13.1 miles I get NAUSEOUS! It is terrible! I'm just not sure I'm a runner... can a person not be a runner? I think so, and I think I'm one of them. I've been told to run through the first wave of nausea and it disappears, but I'm skeptical of such advice. I think we need a dog, then I'd have a companion to run with me... someone please tell Luke to get me a dog! 

That was my quick Hello, and this is my quick good bye! Good bye!!

My nephew!!

This is my nephew - baby boy brunson. If you enlarge the picture they point to the boy parts just to ensure that we all get the picture that this really is a boy. Hilarious. But for all of you reading this, you can follow Lindsay and Chris as they get ready for this little chicken at All about picking out paint colors and watching her growing belly!

Yes it is 2:30am and I am still awake, getting completely sucked in by the new seaseon of the real housewives of new york - goodness I watch such trashy TV! Maybe I'll run into the city to Bergdorf's and run into one of them!?

Busy, busy, busy!

It has been a while! I left the hubs and I went to Dallas this past weekend to see Kiley, and while I meant to write a post while I was there, I was very unsuccessful in doing so. BUT let me start off by saying I left New York  just in the nick of time, we got the most snow we've gotten the whole winter, I'm pretty sure I was one of the last flights out, thank goodness!! Needless to say, my flight was an hour and a half late leaving, and I missed my connecting flight in Detroit and was stuck in Michigan of all places for six hours longer then originally planned. They do have a really cool fountain though - 

I do however hope that whoever designed this really cool fountain, the only cool thing about the Detroit airport - did not design the weird tunnel of lights and music -

It's just creepy. I mean really. If the goal here is to relax you on your way to your next gate, it doesn't work. The nature sounds and soothing light colors do nothing for your sanity as you run a mile lugging a suitcase and oversized purse, sweating, just to find you've missed your flight by 5 minutes. I'm sorry, but Delta has never ever ever ever been on time EVER and they choose the day that I really don't want to get stuck to leave on time. Oh well, whatever. On with my story - when I finally arrived in Dallas and 11pm I was greeted by this - 

A platinum blonde, tanned Kiley, with previously used balloons and a sign! There was some screaming, a little crying, and lots of laughter in our reunion. It was way over due! I will be seeing her again oh so soon though for her wedding! Woo hoo!!! We had lots of fun shopping for wedding dresses, and going out to eat, and just staying up late chatting like the good old days in college - which surprisingly was just last year. My trip was much too short but I was ready to get home to the hubs, I missed him much!!

Although the hubs and I did not get to spend too much time together when I got home, because my first night shift was sunday night and I am now on the complete opposite schedule as the rest of the world and stay up all night and sleep all day. Sunday night was rough, I just wanted to curl up and go to sleep, but 7:30 am came quick and I came home and slept like a rock. While I was asleep my sister called and informed me that she is going to have a sweet little baby boy!!! I am going to be an aunt to a little boy. I know nothing about little boys. I remember nothing about our conversation except that "it's a boy!" yay! and then I was back out like a light. I've now had time to get excited and yet slightly anxious, because you see, on my moms side, there are six grand daughters -

(Left to right: Jenny, Laura, Lindsay, Caroline, Me, Charity)

 three of those grand daughters have now had, or going to have a little boy. I do hope it's not a generational thing... Oh well, we have plenty of time before we must worry about whether it's a boy or girl (family...) I think I will let my cousin Caroline, who is getting married in October, have a baby first and see if the cycle breaks =). Good idea, right!?

That's all for now - I do promise to come back sooner rather then later!
