Operation sweat my hair out is now complete….

Yep, I went running on Saturday (ran a mile, walked 1½ miles). Then on Sunday I walked 2 miles (and got caught in torrential downpour and was soaked- further messing up my hair.)

This morning I got up a little early and did my 30 day shred DVD with Jillian Michaels. It is only a 20 minute workout- but it is pretty intense!

I wish I could report a fun and crazy weekend, but I spent most of the time fighting with my girlfriend. And I don’t really want to talk about, because I’m not sure what to say yet.

Oh wait- that’s a lie! I went to dinner with the Angels on Friday night- how could I forget! I got to se B and her little pregnant self. So freaking adorable! We chit-chatted for hours oohhing and ahhhhing over all the baby details (and of course mucho belly rubbing!).

That was the highlight of the weekend… it just went down from there.

I spent a lot of time blog surfing over the last few days, and I have found some very, very cool fashionistas blogging about everything from their careers to fashion and make-up to shoe collections and love and many other things. It kinda made me feel a little envious.

I’m absolutely in awe that there are real life Sex and the City characters that live their life like I’ve seen in movies. I’m talking bicoastal living, destination weddings, AMAZING collections of shoes, clothes, make-up and jewelry, one of a kind pets, restaurant hopping, car services… the whole nine.

The shoe wardrobes are what really got to me. We are talking hot, HOT designer shoes that I have never so much as even tried on.

These ladies really have it going on and it really makes me what to be there as well.

One day I want to be blogging about living in NYC in my awesome Chelsea apartment, with my fabulous shoe collection, amazing career, flawless body, perfectly manicured nails, loving girlfriend, amazing friends and family that visit all the time- and loving every second of it.

Until then, I’ll just have to blog about what I want…

Don’t get me wrong, I am very happy with my life- flaws and all (most of the time) but a girl can’t help but dream.

Just a few things that I lust over....

Anyways, I am going to try to not wallow in self-pity and have a productive day at work. I'll dream about Prada, Valentino and Christian Louboutin- OH MY. (yes I am chanting from the wizard of oz- so what!)

I’ll be heading to the gym tonight to take out some of my frustration.

Have a wonderful Monday everyone.


  1. I think that from the outside everyone else's life may appear to be a little bit better. But, once you look beneath the surface, they may be wishing that they had what you had. The grass always looks greener from far away.

    Though- I totally have to agree- I day dream about theawesome vacations I would take if I were rich, and all the properties I'd own, and I even want a boat. Daydreaming is always fun!

    Sorry to hear that you and the gf are fighting...hope it gets better between the 2 of you.

  2. Agree with what Dani said, looking great from the surfaces but deep inside not always is. I get a few cases of total envy too.

    But, i , like you, just try to live my life the way I want and I hope I get to be happy too in the process :)

  3. I think many bloggers (myself included) probably write more about the good than the bad. Yay for you for running. I've been slacking big time.

  4. @Dani- you are absolutely right- the grass is always greener on the other side- until you get over there and you are knee deep in someone else’s s**t! lol. I guess it is a part of human nature to always want more. But there is nothing wrong with daydreaming from time to time! The girlfriend and I are much better, I really appreciate the support- it means a lot! Thanks so much for your comments! :-)

    @Andhari- I guess that is all we can do- do the best with what we have. That is easy to forget sometimes- thanks for reminding me! Thanks so much for reading, and thanks for the comments! :-)

    @Katie- You are sooooo right! It is difficult to right about the bad stuff- cause then it is out there and you can’t deny it or convince yourself that you made it up. I guess that’s why I enjoy blogging so much, it really makes me reflect back on myself. Thanks again for reading! :-)
