Life As I Know It

2 Nov

Here’s a few pictures to show what’s been going on lately : )

Went to the mountains to pick apples and tour wineries…perfect Fall day :)

Spent the day visiting historic places and hiking near the river on Fall break :)

Went to a Ke$ha, 3OH!3, and hellogoodbye concert…Um, that was interesting. 3OH!3 is the bomb…and Ke$ha sure does have some flamboyant followers…that’s all I’m gonna say about that.

My best friend got married…and I was in her wedding :) The entire wedding weekend was amazing and the ceremony & reception were so gorgeous!

I ran the Wicked 10k in Virginia Beach…and PR’d :) 49:57! I’ll take it ;)

Anything exciting going on in your life?!

Things I Love About Fall…

29 Sep
  • The leaves as they change from green to all shades of orange, yellow, and red…
  • Nonfat Pumpkin Spice Lattes…I get the sense that PSLs are everyone’s favorite thing about Fall ;)
  • FOOTBALL…need I say more?!
  • Cool weather…which I’m currently still waiting for!
  • Pumpkins and other Fall decor
  • Going to the mountains to pick apples at my favorite orchard: Check it out!
  • Fall fashion…in LOVE with sweaters and boots and cute jackets and scarves. Ah.
  • The smell of peanuts being picked
  • Peanut Fest…if you don’t know what this is, you’re missing out ;)
  • Fall is also the unofficial start of race season for all of us runners out there! I am so excited…kicking it off with a Halloween 10k at the Oceanfront. Maybe I’ll actually dress up this time?!
  • Halloween
  • Thanksgiving…pretty much my favorite holiday…minus Christmas, of course :)
  • …And what’s Thanksgiving without: The MACY’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!

Truly, the best part about Fall is that I get to spend lots of quality time with family & friends and stay busy busy busy…until after Christmas, pretty much. If there’s one thing I thrive on, its being BUSY. haha. And as I just learned a few days ago when I was writing on my calendar, I have absolutely NO free weekends between now and after New Years! Crazy…but I like it! I hope everyone is finding their Fall to be very eventful…even though I’m sure we’re ALL busy, try to stop and take it all in…enjoy the moment ;)

Fall is in the air :)

25 Oct

The trip to Charlottesville was great today :) It was so pretty with all of the leaves changing colors and it was a chilly Fall day. It was so crowded at Monticello but we were able to go on a tour of the house and grounds. I remembered a lot of it from years ago, and it was still as gorgeous as ever! The orchard was beyond crowded…I’ve actually never seen so many people there before. I think that its gotten more popular over the years! We bought lots of fresh apples and cider, can’t wait to try them :) After riding around Charlottesville and stopping at a few stores, I’m finally back home and in desperate need of studying! Test tomorrow…yikes.

Gorgeous leaves at Monticello
