Life Lately!

I've been a little absent in the blog community lately because life has been terribly busy. Here's a little update on what we've been up to.

We went to a US Open match. So fun!
 Womens' match with Ana Ivanovic and Sloane Stephens

Novak Djokovic, ranked number 1 in the world in men's tennis 

Corey and I went to a NY Yankees game. I seriously love baseball games. We didn't take a picture together this time but I sported my pink Yankees hat once again.

We enjoyed some amazing restaurants in NYC and Hoboken, including a trip to our favorite NYC steakhouse, Club A. When in NY, you must eat here. Delicious, beautifully decorated, and the service is impeccable.

I joined a weekly girls' night with one of my friends. We get together on Thursdays for dinner out, several bottles of wine, and Project Runway.

I got a new job. Hated said job. Missed my train (and the next train) home when I got off late daily. Cried in the shower after work almost daily. Then quit my job and thankfully got back into the classroom where I belong.

Headed south for a weekend to spend time with friends and family. We went to the Clemson game and tailgated for twelve hours. Corey and I tried multiple times to take a good picture.




Finally!

We planned a party for fifty people in our courtyard for this weekend. Its a fall kickoff party and I think it is going to be so much fun! There will be lots of yummy snacks and there may or may not be a keg involved. Stay tuned for details and a recap. 

Somewhere in all of this, sweet Maggie from Glitz and Grammar awarded me the I Dig Your Blog Award. She is too sweet and her blog is wonderful - you should definitely check it out.
Thank the person who gave you the award.
Thanks Maggie! You're too sweet!

Share three random facts about yourself.
1. I have to make our bed every day. It really bothers me if I'm ever running late and don't have time to make it. I can be a tad OCD about certain things and this is one of them.

2. Frozen yogurt (the original tart flavor) with fresh fruit and honey is my favorite indulgence. I do love ice cream but if I ever had to give one up for the other, fro-yo would win without a doubt. I love the fresh flavors. Yum!

3. I love Christmas and everything about it. Decorations, the scents, family celebrations. I got in a huge fight with a woman at 7am on the day after Christmas for the perfect artificial tree at Target's 75% off sale. I was there first! 
Obviously, I won.
