A Terrible Excuse

Let me give you my terrible excuse for not blogging more: when I want to write a post, I have to sign out of gmail and then sign in to blogger with my old yahoo email address. And then I have to sign back into gmail when I am finished. And it annoys me and I am too lazy to do it.

Also, majority of time I am on my computer for work. And then I realize I want to blog something but I really have to finish what I am doing and then I shower and leave the house, never to return to my blog idea.

Here is what we have been up to lately:

Feb 23rd: We attended the wedding of Casie and Doug in Breckenridge, CO. Before the wedding, we got to eat at this cool restaurant (where I had a cocktail called the Deconstructed Grapefruit and it was the best cocktail I have ever had). We also hit the slopes for half a day in Beaver Creek with his friend Adam Shay. He was one of Kyle's groomsmen and has been a friend since high school. I hadn't been skiing in 15 years but it all came back to me the minute I put those skis on. The only problem was when I decided to go off some jumps and I didn't know there was a rail on the other side and I hit that icy bar and all of my limbs immediately went in different directions. It was hilarious.

The wedding was held at The Lodge and Spa in Breckenridge and it was the epitome of a gorgeous, snowy Colorado wedding. Casie wore a cream colored sweater over her dress and it was snowing and I got to drink hot chocolate during the ceremony.

We woke up Sunday morning to a blizzard that buried our rental car. Our bright green rental car.
 It should have taken us 1.5 hours to get to the airport in Denver, but it took 4. The roads were terrible and we were just spinning our tires to get up the mountain at one point. We made it to the airport and our flight was delayed (along with thousands of other people) and the only place we could eat was Taco Bell. Don't get me wrong, I love a good Nachos Bell Grande but I hate eating at food courts.

 The next weekend we celebrated Allison's 7th birthday. One of my favorite parts of their birthday is writing them sweet messages on the cards and watching them read it. They read them slowly as if they take in every word. I want them to always know how much we love them. We had lunch at Texas Roadhouse and then went to the OSU bball game.

This is my cocktail creation last week. Fresh grapefruit juice, St. Germain, vodka and topped with champagne. If you haven't had St. Germain, go buy some and make some awesome cocktails.
This past Saturday, I ran the St. Patrick's Day 5K. I ran my fastest time ever, 26:56. I literally could not believe I ran it so fast. I am still really proud of myself! Then I did a little shopping with my mom followed by dinner at Charleston's with Kyle. One year ago on March 16th, he took me to dinner at Charleston's and then came home and proposed. It was one of the best nights of my life and I am so lucky to share my life with him. He has truly shown me what unconditional love means.
