Friday Ali J and I were pool side with Spartan as hkyplayer and his dad worked a half day. We had a great BBQ with yummy salsa and chicken burgers on the grill, @ night we had some of his friends over and watched the NHL draft. I was the first one asleep per usual!~ Ali J and I took hkyplayer's Mom's aerobics class too. SHE KICKED MY BUTT!! His Mom is so great and gave hkyplayer n I a shout out for her one of her songs that reminds her of us...she is in such good shape and man my stomach is so sore! It was one of the wknd highlights. Ali J & I stood in the back and were laughing so hard and sweating so much! Saturday afternoon Ali J fought over who could hang out with me..which was very sweet but also frusterating! I wanted to be in both places. Ali J was going to an all girl's bruncheon and they were gone from 2-9 pm. Hkyplayer was not having that! So instead he won & we went to see transformers. (i was there more or less for cuddiling & movie theater popcorn). Saturday night we met up with his agent at a club in Montreal called buona notte. all of the NHL 1st draft picks were there too. I wish I had a chance to speak to his agent about sending hkyplayer somewhere good AND SOON! we are so behind with hearing where he will be going this season. EEK!
I was so sad to leave, but it was a great time had by all. I decided on a whim I will be going home to Upstate NY for 4th of July wknd. I had not made any plans because I am going home the following wknd for younger brother's HS grad party. On the way home from my wknd trip I thought life is too short to not spend holidays where you want to be!! Even though it is costing an arm & leg! I am taking a limo bus on Thursday night that has wireless access- so I can work if necessary, and on the way back taking an early train so I can work Sunday night at the night job. Hkyplayer mentioned he might come down for it- but we know how that goes :)
So excited!!!!!! Somewhere in there I need to do laundry (piles and piles), get some workouts in, and meet up with Janel- a hs friend in the city I have not seen in ages for sushi!.... I'll upload pics from the wknd shortly!!!

Tomorrow night: RELAX! & greet Ali J at the airport-- all have some sangria!!!! I am working a half day and will be leaving the office/ and nYC at 1:00 (cross fingeeeeers)
Friday: I will have to work (boo) from his house at least in the morning, relax, enjoy the good weather (cross fingers again), lay out pool side.
@ night have a fire in their outdoor fire pit & BBQ!
Saturday: Take his Momma's work out class (shes an instructor) with Ali J, hkyplayer sleeps in. :)...then the ZOO!- one of our favs!
Sunday: Hkyplayers brother- Luke is graduating from high school!! According to the Candians..this means we meet them out downtown?! So weird! lol but ok! ill go with it! (we typically use to go out every other night when I would visit)..that was before we realized the backyard, some good sangria and comfy clothes can be just as enticing. We have been nesting as of late :) ....and i love every minute of it....but i do miss the night life of my fav. city of all time!--Montreal!
tonight i will be going home to go for a quick jog and finish packing. in my world that means going through my bag ONE MORE TIME in hopes i can eliminate some of the 10,000 lbs of luggage. ha!
to recap, last night i went to H&M before working out. i saw the huge SALE sign and couldnt resist. Got cute unders ($1-$3.00 each), a cute-summer-scarf- lepoard and pink (good for travel!!!)- $5.00, cute pjs-- i hate walking around his house in not so nice pjs- $15.00, a skirt- i am wearing today haha! $10.00) AND a comfy shirt I will wear tomorrow for work day/flight- with skinny jeans, heels and a blazer. Do i need this stuff? NO. does it make me happy. YES. maybe I will return the stuff I end up not using or liking. Ha. Right.
P.S. H&M dressing rooms ARE not my friend. The mirrors, the lighting. I think God created us just as he wanted. I dont think we are suppose to be able to see our bum from 50 different angles in flourescent lighting.......not cute. BUT! inspired me on my run to push harder thats for sure.

my blog looks about as fashionable as i do today...
sunkissed AND skin firming...is this a miracle in a bottle??
mmmm.....crystal light... i am known to over dose on these. i know it is not healthy. but seriously, i hate regular water. i depend on the flavor. & AGAIN! the sun is out...
??! what is better than ice cold lemonade. ??!
i love products. after my crazy mondays working both jobs i always feel so good when i cash a paycheck and use $20 of a paycheck towards new perfumes, face washes or heck..dish detergent. i cannot even explain how it cheers me up. right now i have pomegranate dish soap. i also got little tester sized shampoo and conditioners for my (possible) up coming vacation this wknd. Hkyplayer will be so amazed with his super efficient girlfriend. Usually I bring jumbo sized everything & about a million pairs of shoes. But this time I am flying. No time to be over-indulgent!
on a related topic. i was in line at duane read and they have WHIPPED reeses peanut butter cups. say what. how delissssh. mmm. i can only imagine how great they would be. chocolate & peanut butter is my weakness. My maternal gma is OBSESSED w peanut butter so i swear it is located somewhere in my genetic make up and therefore, not my fault. or problem :) BUT! i did not grab 1! I did not! Instead I bought grapes from a street vendor. 1. the weather is beaaautiful. i could practically walk around in a bikini thru Midtown Manhattan. ..doesnt really make ya want a Reeses does it?! & 2. THIS BLOG. http://www.fitnessista.com/... how amazing/gorgeous is 'G'!! This girl is an inspiration. She is also a fitness instructor/personal trainer just like Hkyplayers Momma. I cannot wait to log into her blog this wknd (possible vacation) & show Ali J and HkyMomma her blog!
hopefully this not so me day will suddenly turn into i love the summer, i love eating healthy and working out day. ps. i am so glad i brought my gym stuff to change into! looks like i am forgoing yet another happy hr for the sanity of the treadmill. sorry coworkers in advanced. :X
much needed moi time! xx have an amazing afternoon all...

*Ali J & Spartan*
Running marathons is a MONTHLY occurrence. She rewards herself with massages & an occasional steak vs. the cupcakes and of late- Sour patch kids (Woops!!) like me. She has motivated me to stay on track though with my latest healthy life style. ie. I have cut out dairy and feel a LOT better and have been staying focused on what I am eating, why, and how my workouts are going. Anyway, feeling a whole lot better since my post -- see Dana Torres below ;) Here is a picture of her & her 'puppy' Spartan. She is flying w/ Spartan from BC to Montreal! HE IS HUGE!! Only a couple months old. I cannot wait to see how hkyplayer and in particular, hkyplayer's Dad, handle having a new puppy in their house! Should be very, very fun! Counting the days... Tonight we are suppose to be having a work happy hour. We will see if it is still on as a lot of accounts have been working long hours with upcoming campaigns. I am 50-50. I would like to go and have some laughs. But I would also like to come home after work and clean the apt. a little bit and watch junk-reality tv.. we shall see..Happy Tuesday blogettes.. xx

i came across daphne's site after watching a whole buncha Momversation Vlogs yesterday. Daphne is hilarious, and outspoken, smart. etc. Girl Crush. plz plz plz watch her vlogs. so worth it. Mommy Blogs are my guilty pleasure. I kinda feel like how I did in middle school when I got to travel to the high school on a field trip. Kind of like ok that is in my future. And what do all the cool girls do. Back then it was Abercrombie, highlights and Vera Bradley...now it is Motherhood- stay at home moms, highlights, & blogs/vlogs, eating organic & BEING REAL...maybe some day i will be part of that club.
Here is a pic of Heidi and her Hubby Cole Hamels post World Series win
