Went to get an oil change earlier this week and asked the mechanic if the vulcanized tires are excited for the new Star Trek movie. He did not laugh. Reminded me of the day I complimented the FedEx guy's "big package" (yuck yuck) and he turned around and it was a chick... I should not be allowed to talk to people.
So coming off the high of that beautifully placed joke, I decided to take advantage of the sunshine and run 10 miles. It's a CRIME to waste a beautiful day, right? I realized as I was trotting through a crosswalk that I get nervous if a car is waiting for me to cross. I get self conscious. Makes me change my stride, like a wounded gazelle, cuz I'm afraid I'm gonna fall. Imagine if the mechanic who didn't get my joke earlier that day was the one driving the car waiting for me to cross the road in front of him. He'd assume I had a horrible accident, leaving me unable to work my legs or speak properly.
Again, the arguments for me staying in the house at all times are myriad.
But I hope YOU have a great weekend here in NEPA! Take advantage of the Fine Arts Fiesta in Wilkes Barre and go outside to exercise! In case you need another reason to rely on natural endorphins instead of drugs: Rod Stewart said in an interview this week that years of steroid use made his pee-pee smaller. AND it left him looking like…… Rod Stewart. Let that be one to grow on.
Hey friends! At Guys Night Out For The Girls on Friday night I got yelled at by a few ladies that have been following this blog of my wedding planning and were wondering where i've been and why there haven't been many posts lately. Honestly ... I haven't done anything! I have a feeling this summer is going to be chock full of wedding choices and planning ... but it's been slow lately!
I do have an update though! Over the weekend, John's Mom, (or MOG as she likes to be called!) sister-in-law Patti, and sister Carolyn and I went dress shopping. It was a girls day! We went to the most amazing mall in New Jersey and ended up finding the Mother of the Groom a beautiful dress at Lord and Taylor. It fit her beautifully and looked amazing!
We had a great day that started with sunshine ... and then when we exited the mall we found that the skies opened up and it was downpouring! This is our SOAKED shot once we finally made it back to the car. My shoes are STILL wet today!
The only other update I have it ... our keys arrived! I mentioned before, our wedding theme is skeleton keys! John gave me a Tiffany key to his heart on our first Valentine's Day together. It seemed only appropriate that we used keys in the wedding decor. We ordered a ton of different keys on Etsy and they all arrived. Most will be used in the centerpieces ... but more on that later ;)
The next things on the wedding to-do list are ... map out the ceremony, make sure the girls order their bridesmaid dresses, and schedule hair and makeup! Going to need to call my hair favorites at Sapphire! :)
Friday night was our first GUYS NIGHT OUT FOR THE GIRLS in years and we had a BLAST! We had a great group of ladies and the night got WILD! To protect the privacy of the ladies in attendance, i'm just posting a couple pictures from the beginning of the night! :)
This is our driver John from Nasser Limosine.
It was GREAT meeting you ladies! Hope to see some of you next year at GUYS NIGHT OUT FOR THE GIRLS 2014! Special thanks to the Grandview for being wonderful hosts! :)

She's in Michigan. I'm here. A little blue that I can't be with my mommy on Mothers Day. I'm staying off Facebook all weekend and avoiding anyplace that offers brunch, so I don't start crying in public like a weirdo. I had that problem on Christmas a couple years ago. Some kid offered me a Rudolph cookie at a bake sale and all I could think was: my family's back in Michigan watching Rudolph, probably singing "Silver & Gold" with Burl Ives, and I'm here eating a charity cookie from a nine year old.....and this is the nicest gift anyone in Pennsylvania has ever given me. That was my first Christmas here. Pathetic, yes. But all Pennsylvania Christmases since have been lovely! Poor kid probably thought I was mental when I got tears in my eyes over a cookie...
He's kinda right.
I just wanted to say I HAVE THE BEST MOM (and two of the best grandmas) in the world! I love you all and I would NOT be where I am today if it weren't for strong women like you! I hope all the moms out there have a happy Mothers Day! And if you're barren and childless like me, you can enjoy the day by throwing on yoga pants and cranking up "Groove Is In The Heart" while you dance around like an idiot, cuz no one's there to judge you except that potted plant. Damn righteous ficas.
Had to retire my favorite running shoes yesterday! What's worse: that I've been running in the same shoes for 3 years now, or that I've run with that HOLE in the toe for 2 weeks? And no, it's not cuz I'm cheap. Well..... not JUST cuz I'm cheap. These things are so COMFY! They fit me like a glove....for my feet. Bad with analogies today.
I run between 30-40 miles a week so these things have been good to me. Fare thee well, old friends.
Today is our 6 year anniversary! Our working anniversary! I started here at KRZ 6 years ago today! Reflecting on the last 6 years ... we've had a lot of laughs and i've been forced to do lots of things I wish I hadn't. Remember that time I inseminated a COW?!
That was SO gross. If you haven't watched that video yet ... definitely click on the link. But DON'T do it while you're eating. It's DISGUSTING!
Just wanted to say thank you for listening and welcoming me into your radio family! Here's to 6 more! :) XO
