Catching you all up...

Memorial Day Weekend was a MUCH needed break from the grind of the job. 3 days off was *glorious*, although I did have to work for a couple of hours on Saturday and Monday.

This past Friday also started summer hours at work - 1 pm end time with no making up time. However, that also didn't happen exactly as planned, but 3 pm found me with some of my coworkers having a beverage in honor of the long weekend!

Friday night, I collapsed when I got home and slept for 12 straight hours. The weather on Saturday was yucky, so Blondie and I took it easy - we got our laundry and grocery shopping done, and then just relaxed in front of the TV. I did get myself a nice pedicure on Saturday - since it was rainy weather, I thought I'd get a nice lemony yellow color to cheer myself up. However, I didn't really check out the nail polish, so my nice lemony yellow is actually "French's Mustard". Blondie walked around on Saturday going "Nice yellow toes!" every 5 secs. :) Thanks Blondie!

Sunday was much nicer. Shelbs and Bbbb picked us up and we headed to Marin to relax on the beach for awhile. We hit up Stinson Beach, and then headed to The Pelican Inn for a few drinks and some lunch.

Monday was back to doing nothing, and it was needed as this week has been insane.

Frazzedly yours,

B2B... Speedy peeps...

Blondie and I set out to run the Bay To Breakers 12K (7.46 miles) race on Sunday. This race takes you from downtown by the SF bay, all the way across town to the Pacific Ocean. We both rocked it out. I only had to walk a tiny portion of the 11.15% grade hill that came between miles 2.5 and 3 - and was able to run the rest (1:32:11). Blondie of course, ran the entire thing and rocked it out!!!!

The thing about B2B is that 60,000 people set out to do this thing, but only about 25,000 finish it - the rest get TRASHED along the course. So after we finished the race, Blondie and I walked the 4 miles from the ocean back to our 'hood and hung out with Party C, Wonderbutt, and few other friends to watch everyone else come through.

I got passed by naked men who were running. That's right. Completely butt naked. Everything flopping around. They still passed me.

Ouch. That's all I have to say.

Blondie and I had taken last Thurs and Fri off of bootcamp in order to be rested for the race on Sunday, so today was our first day back. Monday was the start of a new camp, and was initial assessment for the new people. So today we show up thinking we'd be doing a class, but we ended up having to take the run test today.

15:38!!!! 1.5 miles in 15:38! That's CRAZY good for me! That's also 1:26 faster than last time I did the run test (thanks running group!)

But the incredible news is Blondie - who did his 1.5 miles in 12:08!!!!

I think we are most proud of the fact that we ran our fastest times today, 2 days after we did a 7.5 mile run with a 4 mile walk back to our apt after.

Go us!

The birthday boy... and some major news!!!!

Blondie convinced me to stay home yesterday and celebrate his birthday with him! I hope he had a great day, b/c I know I did. I did have to work, but it was a manageable day - so I also got to spend a lot of time with Blondie.

We went down to Kezar Pub for lunch so that Blondie could have some chicken wings, and ended up watching soccer playoffs with a bunch of people while chowing down on our grub. It was great fun - everyone was yelling and screaming, and saying Fuck a lot (the team that everyone wanted to win wasn't winning).

Afterwards, we headed to the grocery so I could buy some cake mix and make some cupcakes for Blondie, and then it was home to pop in Eurotrip and laugh ourselves sick.

Shelbs and Bbbb drove to the Haight and met up with us for some Greek food. We had a blast - and it was really good getting to catch up with them.


Major news.... The Cutest Kid in the World, v4.0, is due in January!!!! Mr and Mrs Pooh (aka Happy Skittles) are now expecting their 2nd (the 4th total - hence v4.0 - between me and Blondie). Congrats to the Pooh family, and can't wait to meet the newest addition to the family!

Happy happy (almost) birthday!!!!

So, my favorite man in the world is having a big giant birthday on Monday. I just wanted to let everyone know in advance, b/c this birthday is a big one.

Blondie and I have been having a celebration week b/c of the birthday also. We went and saw Ironman on Wed night - that was a really good movie! I had to laugh b/c it seems like the 80's stars are on a comeback right now (Jon Cryer - 2 and a Half Men; Patrick Dempsey - McDreamy of course; and now Robert Downey Jr). Who's next?

Last night we went for our favorite deep dish pizza. It was so fantastic. Fantastic until this morning when all 5 tons of food I inhaled last night decided to rise up on my way to bootcamp. I spent 20 minutes talking myself out of yakking.

Tonight Blondie and I are joining our bootcamp group to take in the SF Giants game! If the Giants win, it will make our record of going to the games and having them win spotless.

Tomorrow we are going with my running group to CS Reservoir again for an 8 (6???) mile run and then afterwards are finally headed to San Jose to see the Winchester Mystery House!

Sunday, we will sleep.

Happy Friday all! And Happy Almost Birthday Blondie!!!

Too much vodka... not enough non-vodka...

Work party Friday night + hanging with Sweetie J and Party C afterwards + sooooooo NOT used to drinking anymore = green Yours Truly on Saturday morning.

Blondie and I skipped running with the running group on Saturday because the only thing I could think about Saturday morning was bagels. Bagels to sop up the vodka rolling around in my gut.

Blondie drug me out to Crystal Springs Reservoir on Sunday morning though - it's about 20 minutes south of SF, and it's a paved out-and-back, 12 mile roundtrip course.

I managed to actually run an entire 10K (6.2 miles) - I used to run 6+ miles on the treadmill back when I was in great shape, but never could do that distance outdoors. I used to sign up for 10K's and have to run/walk them. But I managed to run it all on Sunday, and run it faster than I've ever done a 10K. I was ecstatic.

Of course Blondie ripped out 10 miles in only 30 minutes more than my paltry 6.2 but that's okay. He's got longer legs than me.

The most exciting part of the run though was the wildlife. I was on my way back to the parking lot, and there was a baby deer alongside the path, just chilling. I couldn't stop staring at it (almost tripped over my own feet there) b/c I couldn't believe how close I was to him! It's times like this I wish I had little cat leashes and could drag them for a run with me - how much would Tigga and Max (okay, just Tigga) loved to see the deer!
