Time Flies

Oh. My. WHAT?! It's been a month since my last post?! What is the matter with me? I can't say it hasn't been a busy month -- because if I did I'd be lying. :) Let's play a little bit of catch up.

I had a very short trip back to Vegas for a childhood friend's wedding. I don't get home very often so even the shortest trips are treasured. I love being around my parents and my cousin -- and who wouldn't love the home cooked Chinese food?! I can't wait for my parents to come visit in May for my graduation :) As for the wedding, the professional pictures haven't come back yet so I'll share them (along with some more details of the wedding once I have them.)

My boyfriend and I both celebrated our birthdays last week and we were so very blessed to be able to have a home cooked meal while we were in Vegas. My parents even got us a cake and made sure they gave us two "Happy Birthday"s -- one pink and one blue. Once back in New York, we spent most of his birthday lounging around since it was a bit of a shock to go from almost perfect spring weather back to winter conditions again. For mine, I dragged him out shopping with me (actually, I really just wanted one of the spicy hot dogs from the street vendors.)

My birthday outfit was supposed to be slightly more spring time, but with the random rain that day... well, my options were a little bit limited.

  • Veda, Exclusively for SCOOP NYC Leather Jacket
  • Equipment Pink Leopard Print Long Sleeve Blouse
  • BCBG Ingrid A-Line Skirt
  • Chanel Scarf, and Bag
  • Stuart Weitzman Renegade Boots

I have one more piece of exciting news, but I want to wait a bit to share it with everyone :) If you check out my "Upcoming" page, you'll see all the races and events that I'll be present at. If you've checked there or you follow me on Instagram, you've already probably figured out the big news. I think that news deserves its own blog post and I don't want its spotlight to be taken away :)

I hope everyone is looking forward to Friday because it's the FIRST DAY OF SPRING! <3 Stay tuned for the big news soon!
