Okay, enough gushing for one post (for now. I spent 46 hours in Dallas this weekend and to say it was fun is an understatement. It was basically non stop laughing, eating, little sleeping, catching up, and gossiping. It was so great to see some college girlfriends, and grab a bite with one of my best cousins Trish, and have a delicious brunch at my aunt Kate's. I got to spend time with my friends Will and Jess and their four, yes FOUR darling kids (more on that in a later post.) Becky and Sean let me crash at their awesome apartment which was a blast, because Sean is as fun to hang out with as any girlfriend. He and Becky are so perfect for each other.
My dad's in the city for a few days for work so tonight we met up for a run and light dinner. I've been going on and on to him (and anyone else who'll listen) about how much I love running the Reservoir, so we decided instead of just loading up on carbs at his favorite Italian joint we'd have a run and then eat something light. We had a really nice jog together and I'm always glad when one of my family members can see why I love the city so much. I'm pretty sure the cherry blossoms are in full bloom and they're so gorgeous.
After our run we walked through the park a bit, then down Central Park West, and then over towards Broadway. We stumbled upon a place to eat, which I love doing, because now that place will forever be ours and I'll think of tonight whenever I pass by it.
I am so grateful for technology we have today. I've been catching up on conference since I missed it all while in DC. It's nice to be able to read it in the Ensign, but it's really nice to be watching it as if it's live.
I'm so happy baseball season has started. I feel like a crappy fan admitting I haven't seen any games yet, but I've either been out when they've been on, or someone else is watching something on tv and it's about five months too early to try to hijack the tv. I have, however, occasionally sat and watched the live feed on my phone. Almost as good as listening on the radio right? :) I can't wait to go to my first game of the season. The Angels are in town this week and I'd love to go to a game now that Godzilla plays for them, but that's not working out either. My dad and I were going to try to go but the days we could they're day games. We were going to go to a Mets game instead (still haven't been to the new stadium) but they're away. What luck!
Work's been incredibly busy the three weeks or so. I'm looking forward to things slowing down a bit, and being a little less stressful in the next week or so.
Alright, time to log off. I've been saying I'd go to bed early for a few weeks, and tonight it's finally going to happen. Hurray!
