Highs and Lows

reunion

Some of my closest girlfriends!

This weekend was {this} close to being an absolutely perfect one.  Friday afternoon, I said goodbye to the boys (who were being watched by my sweet sister!) and picked up three of my college girlfriends from the airport/their apartment in NJ enroute to our 10 year college reunion at West Point. Friday night was an organized dinner where we got to catch up with all of our classmates who had come for the reunion. We had decided to go sans significant others/kids so that we could have some girl time – we haven’t all been together in years.

We didn’t make it to bed until 2am – WAY past my normal bedtime but totally worth the exhaustion we all felt at 6am the next morning when it was time to get up and get ready for the day. Saturday consisted of watching the pre-game parade (first parade I have seen since I graduated):

Hanging out in North Area (location where we had formation 2x/day):

Touring the gym:

and lastly, attending the football game:

    – Two weeks ago, I finished up the redesign of my blog.  I have been itching to have it redone since December, but could not bring myself to lay out the large amounts of money I was being quoted by various web designers.  My blog does not provide me with an income yet, so spending upwards of $1,000 to “make it look pretty” was not a justifiable expense.  Thankfully, a friend on twitter recommended Blog Genie, a fantastic company that offered the same services at a fraction of the cost.   And to save myself even more money, I put on my creativity hat and redesigned the header!
