6/20 was a special day

Normally on a Monday morning I would have no issues banging out a post but today I'm just exhausted and my fingers don't feel like working right now.  I'm sort of pissed with blogger because I'm trying to read everyone's post (I view them through the blogfeed on the blogger dashboard) and for some dumb reason it's only showing 1 post, with a "view more" link below, and well when I click on it, it doesn't show me more. So as you can imagine I'm mildly annoyed but let's not talk any further about it because something that minor could likely ruin my morning (easily irritated what can I say?).

So since I don't feel like typing a long ass weekend update post, I'm going to show you how it went. This is a combination of photos from my iphone and my Nikon.  Enjoy!  P.S. Stick around to the bottom to hear how ridiculous Linus is when we take a 2 minute trip to the vet.

[P.S. I could never be a fashion blogger because I'm way too lazy to find the exact and/or similar items to link to] :-)


Holy Preciousness, right?? First of all, she's the cutest little peanut ever. second... Isabella Rose! HOW SWEET! I LOOOVEE her name.  If you haven't guessed, my best friend Rachel finally had her baby!! So excited. I can't wait to snuggle up with her, give her kisses and talk baby to her. I will finally be able to see what it's really like to be an Aunt. (insert sad face here since I have 3 nieces. you know the backgrounds). 

Good old Linus on the way to the vet. Yep. Total baby status. But besides the crying, can you believe how huge his fangs are?!!? He gained 1lb and I'm not happy about it (he weighs 10lbs now). But on the flipside he is one healthy kitty so that's great!  Peanut is still having issues with her eyes.  Poor thing.

Saturday morning running.  I had this brilliant idea that we were going to take a trail to see Cherry Quay, a beautiful road that runs along the bay and it would all be perfect because I'd have really great photo ops for the blog (obviously) while exercising.  Well good, old neighbor DAVE tells us about this so-called trail. Total shit.  This trail was like 3/4 mile through weeds, swamps, old shit all over the place, and bugs GALORE. OH, and DRAGONFLIES GALORE. UGH. That crap was all OVER me. So anyway, we finally make it to the end, and there are those large trees basically separating this trail to someone's property.  I told Mike to go through and apparently a man who lived there was outside and said something a long the lines "yeah I wouldn't go through there if I were you".  What the F is that supposed to mean? Like it's dangerous and buggy? Or you just don't want us trapsing through your property? Long story short, we turned around and had to face that ridiculousness on the way back and I stepped in swampy muddy areas and my feet were disgusting. Hence the photo above to the right. We were NOT happy.

By the way, we later saw Dave at the pool and I said "Dave, what's up with that trail? Totally bogus"... his response was "Ahh really?? Well it's been two years since I ran through it". REALLY DAVE. TWO YEARS?!?!?! AYE! (p.s. we really like our neighbor Dave he's so nice).

Solo running on a Sunday evening at it's finest.  Honestly, I told Mike if I didn't come home in an hour to send out a search party for me.  Something about this park, so peaceful yet so creepy when you are the only one there!! Luckily as I got towards the other end there ending up being a ton of people playing on the football field and playgrounds.

So, pretend fashion blogging, baby visiting and running were this weekends adventures.  Next week, I'm going to a wedding up in Florham Park at the Park Savoy.  I'm kinda sorta NOT looking forward to it.
