i have a lot on my plate.

metaphorically speaking, of course, since it’s not exactly mealtime right now.

between catching up at work, having my fabulous family in town from california and working on all the details for the great fundraising act, i have little time left to blog! i really want to recap my tahoe trip (mainly because the longer i wait, the greater the chances are that i forget everything) but i can’t squeeze a recap into my schedule quite yet.

what i can do is post my entire instagram feed from thursday to monday. for those who don’t know, instagram is an iPhone app that is strictly photos. and for those of you who already follow me on instagram.. well.. sorry, this will be nothing new. come back later!

FUN times! Love the fact you can bring the pups! I have the perfect vehicle for all outdoor activities, bike rack included but Kronus is a maniac and won’t play nice. So sad. I need a vacation bad!

Oh my, those randy and penny pics are killin me with their cuteness! I want to go on vaca with you all!

I am driving 18 hours this wk so I feel your pain. I bought my first audiobook though and can’t wait to try it out. I am just hoping it will make the time go by fast. Also, I’m trying not to speed home since it will be the first time I see my pup in a month. Totally going to cry when I see him.

Abby @ Abz 'n' Oats July 19, 2011 at 3:49 pm

What a fun trip! I love your grammar patrol pic. That would so be me! :)

The Healthy Engineer July 19, 2011 at 3:51 pm

You went to Lake Tahoe??

That is one of the best parts about Nevada/California (I can never remember which state it is in!)

Katherina @ Zephyr Runs July 19, 2011 at 5:09 pm

LOVE the grammar patrol. LOVE. And the lake.

Can you point me in the direction of posts about your supplements? Thanks!

Errign July 19, 2011 at 5:13 pm

So glad you had a great trip. I’m jealous of your Trader Joe’s goings & fun adventures :) I think I need to get on this Hunger Games train, especially since they’re filming the movies in the city I live in, um, right now, I think.

Lauren July 19, 2011 at 5:49 pm

You certainty do have a lot on your plate. I know what you mean, right now, my life is a bit chaotic too, but it’s all for such good things that it’s hard to complain about it. Looks like you had a wonderful trip! So happy you got a chance to get away and celebrate life and love. :)

cathy July 19, 2011 at 6:13 pm

welcome home!!!
a quick trip recap is just fine – the photos tell it all. looks like a wonderful getaway, and i’m glad you and marshall had such a lovely holiday.
the restroom photo – > i do that, too! i love snapping photos of grammar/spelling errors and signs that i find just plain funny. best one ever, in moab, utah: “parents, control your children.” :)

Susan July 19, 2011 at 6:28 pm

You don’t need a more detailed recap my dear! This covered things beautifully and it made me smile so much!

Also, good to know Marshall is your favorite husband. You know, out of all of them… ; )

Kimberley July 19, 2011 at 6:41 pm


Paige @ Running Around Normal July 19, 2011 at 7:19 pm

What an awesome weekend! Sounds/looks like one you’ll remember forever! :)

BroccoliHut July 19, 2011 at 7:39 pm

The grammar Nazi in me shudders at the sight of that restroom sign.

Lindsay @Lindsay's List July 19, 2011 at 8:04 pm

I love the iphone apps…Have you tried ScoutMob yet?
P.S. eating your protein frosty right now…no sugar! It’s pretty awesome.

Brittany July 19, 2011 at 9:42 pm
