Life Lately

Hello long lost friends! What a whirlwind life has been lately. Here’s some random highlights to get you up to speed with my life lately.

Two weekends ago, I went to San Diego for a work conference. The view from my hotel room looked like a postcard!

It was absolutely gorgeous outside, so I laid out for 45 minutes before exploring the town and going out for dinner.

My body totally forgot how to process sun, and I woke up in a lot of pain the next day. Whoops.

I ended up coming back a day early because I got finished with everything for work I had to get done, and it was cheaper to change my flight than to stay an extra night in the hotel. It was a fun and productive trip, but weird staying just one night in a hotel on the other side of the country!

Then I got back to DC and left again a few days later for New Orleans for one of my best friend’s bachelorette’s. It was AMAZING. Here’s the bachelorette, Lianne, and me:


9 girls, and somehow NO DRAMA.


We ate, drank, danced, and made Lianne do a lot of embarrassing things. It was so much fun, but I am definitely not 21 anymore. By the last day, we were all ready to come back home, and not eat or drink again. Winking smile

And then this past weekend, we had a baby shower for one of our best friend’s from college, Rachel. She’ll be 37 weeks this Friday, and it is so crazy to think that my friends are now having babies and that no one is concerned because we’re old enough that it’s perfectly acceptable.


She looks SO cute and you can’t even tell she’s pregnant from the back or the front. I can only dream that I’ll look anything like that at almost full term! Lianne and Jess came with, and it was so fun to see a lot of the women in Rachel’s life that we hadn’t seen since the wedding.


The set-up was really cute, with baby-themed décor everywhere.


We played a bunch of games, ate food and delicious oreo-filled cake, and watched Rachel open a ton of gifts to get ready for Ethan’s arrival. Such a fun afternoon.

Other random updates:

    • The Beth’s Journey DietBet ends today!
    • I am traveling to Woodstock, NY to see my sister and the kiddos this coming weekend for the first time since Christmas!

See you soon!

Would you guys be interested in me hosting another DietBet for May? I was thinking of having another one start Monday, May 6, but only if you guys want me to!
