Guys, I'm obsessed with the Olympics!!! I mean, I always have been, just ask my mom. I can't stop watching them, even the events no one seems to like.
More blogging to come in the future! Now, it's time to watch some more Olympics. :D
My blog hiatus all started off with my business trip to Boston. I left very very early Sunday morning (in the last week of June) - we're talking 3:30am people, ugh. My flight was supposed to leave at 5:50am. Yeah, that didn't happen because they were servicing the plane. Sigh. You know in the Amazing Race when the participants are running around trying to get on stand-by and/or are trying to change their flight? That was me. Alas, there was nothing to be done. We finally left around 8:15/8:30. Needless to say, I missed my connection to Boston, so, I had to stay the night. Hey, at least they give you hotel and $10 meal vouchers!
Monday morning came, and I finally got there. Well, sort of. You see, when I landed it was thunder storming. Normally I love a good thunder storm, but today, well, today I needed to get to my convention! I was stuck on the plane for over two hours. I could see the gate from my seat, but the crew was not allowed out while there was lightning.
FINALLY I got to the convention, had lunch, sat at the booth, had a wonderful dinner with my boss, and got checked in to my hotel.
Tuesday, my boss left for another convention, and I was on my own. Luckily, it was only a half day. After I was done at the convention, I got lunch, took a nap, and then I went on a duck tour and saw a Red Sox game at Fenway! Oh yeah, I also got awkwardly hit on while I was at the game...sorry boys, I'm taken. Did make me feel good about myself I suppose.
All in all, it was a good trip. Boston is such a cool and beautiful city - I already want to go back. I think I just need to do a whole northeast tour.
The Olympics have begun, and I'm SO EXCITED! I love the Olympics! The funny thing is, I'm not very athletic, or that competitive - ok, ok...I can be competitive, but not like this. Regardless, I've always had a fascination and love for the Olympics.
Unlike many people I've talked to, I enjoyed the opening ceremonies. Was it bizarre? Yes. Did it get confusing? Absolutely. But, I still managed to enjoy them.
How was everyone's week? My was filled with getting used to a new office building and work (per usual). I did manage to go out to happy hour with co-workers, watch project runway with a friend, and of course I watched the opening ceremonies, but other than that, it's been work, work, and work. This weekend I'm going to get some good relaxing in. I feel like I could use it :) Well, that and I'm going wine tasting tomorrow! Hooray :D
What are your weekend plans?
Do you like the Olympics? What are some of your favorite events to watch?
Well friends, it has been just over a month since I last blogged. What inspired this hiatus? It all started off with my business trip to Boston. I already want to go back to Boston - I feel like there's so much to do and see there. I enjoy traveling, but it was nice to be back in my own bed with my hubby.
After Boston, I had a lot of work to catch up on, friends to see, weddings to coordinate and attend, my 3 year anniversary (yup, I've been married 3 years...crazy, huh?!) and honestly, I just wasn't feeling inspired/I forgot to blog. Happens to the best of us.
Our company is moving offices, so I had the luxury of getting off at 2pm on Thursday, and having the entire day off Friday. I went out to a late lunch and got mani/pedis with some co-workers, I saw The Dark Knight Rises (SO GOOD!!!), and I relaxed. It was glorious.
I'm excited to "start" blogging again, though I'm still debating the Tumblr vs. Blogger thing. Anyway, I hope you all had a great weekend.
