Hello everyone! I eluded to a fun weekend in my last post and I’m finally back: Rob and I went camping for 4 nights at Ricketts Glen State Park in Pennsylvania! It was my birthday and we did this as a little treat to get away and spend some time together.


We arrived on Thursday after an easy drive (it is about 3

Beauty, Babies, and Rugby

This past weekend was the busiest I’ve had all Fall so far.  I don’t think I ever stopped moving!

Thursday night, I got home early from school and instead of sitting around, I headed over to the rugby field to watch the guys practice and take some pictures (still locked on the camera).  Then I went with them to the bar for a drink and

Another Muddy Weekend

Happy Tuesday!  I was just a little worker-bee yesterday, I didn’t want to stop to write a blog.  It was another whirlwind weekend.  Saturday, we shot another Mud Run and I just loved the obstacle I had!  I think the angles were just great for photos and it was the last one right before the finish line so most people were so happy to be

MudManX–My First Mud Run!

This weekend was jam packed!  First off, Friday, I had to come home early for a doctor’s appointment.  Luckily I was there because my sister needed me to help her move some stuff at the very last minute and the new Jeep came in handy!  Then the rest of the evening was spent baking cookies for Lauren’s Christmas in July Party!

We had

July So Far

First, I feel like my July goals are just slipping away! It has been hard this week with Rob around. My routine is all thrown off and he knows it! We did get up yesterday and went for a run. I almost didn’t go but then got a message from a friend that I couldn’t let Rob be a reason to slack off! It was

28th Birthday Recap!

Yesterday was my birthday! I’m not big on birthdays really. I prefer to just do whatever I want and hang out with Rob. Well, I did whatever I wanted but Rob was in NJ. So let’s recap my birthday! First off, let me show you what Rob got me for my birthday. If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been posting these fancy-schmancy pictures on my blog
