Hi :)

I find/do/learn about/read about/watch stuff fascinating stuff all the time. This blog used to be one way I spread the word about those great things. However, quite honestly, I lost interest in blogging mostly about running, it was nice outside, I was busy at work... etc. etc. etc.

I was itching to write again, and after watching the transformation a fellow blogger/old roommate made to her site, I felt inspired to pound the keyboard and give this blogging stuff another go. So thanks, lady for being so awesome! I'm back, with a fresh new look and feel that I love.

I'm sure most of you are pretty familiar with who I am and my life. But for those who aren't, here's a quick update on what has been happening since I last updated. First and foremost, I did indeed qualify for the Boston Marathon and, with an overall time of 3:37:04, left room to spare! YAY!

Because he is so great, B. took me out for an AH-mazing dinner at Tango Sur, an Argentinean steakhouse in our 'hood, to celebrate. We indulged with tons of red wine and an enormous fillet juicier and more tender than I thought possible. And mashed potatoes, which was kind of random considering I'm more of a roasted potatoes kind of gal. We were both very sad when got in our cab and realized that the leftovers (this steak was a monster!) had been left behind. UGH.

Anyways, we picked up some Amstel Lights and went to my apartment when suddenly, B. reached into his coat pocket and launched into this schpiel about how great the day was and much he loves me and wants to always make me happy ya-da-ya-da-ya-da and down a knee and PROPOSED! Talk about a seriously awesome day. It was the perfect proposal and so us. Here is a pic of my ring, in case you haven't seen it:

Aren't I just the luckiest???? I LOVE IT. It is more sparkly in person, I swear. I will let you try it on if you ask nicely. Ring aside, I truly feel blessed to have found such an amazing person to walk with on the path of life. It's just the coolest feeling. If you haven't already, check out our wedding Web site, where you can learn more about us, our big day and even help create our reception playlist!

Because of this engagement, I have decided that henceforth, I will refer to "B." (which, by the way, was short for boyfriend) as "Big." Just like Carrie Bradshaw. I think this will be quite funny.

Moving forward, what you can expect to read on this blog is simple: everything I love. However, expect heavy doses of wedding updates as I hem and haw over every last detail. Plus, this will reallllllly draw out the process and enable all of you to enjoy small bits of the wedding fun, though of course, we'll keep some things a surprise. 

So go ahead, add this subscription to your Google Reader (if you don't have a gmail account, it's time!) or click on the click on the "follow" icon to the right, and share your feedback with me! It's only fun to blog if people are stalking... err, reading.
