A Month?!

I can't believe it's been a month since my last post. I'm sure you've all been clicking into my blog from your "favorites" menu bar, wondering what the heck happened to that nutty New York chick.

Well- for starters...

1. Work has been insane. Good insane, but insane nonetheless. We actually just launched some Speed Stick videos on YouTube... so if you're an 18-34 year old male who needs antiperspirant/deodorant, or a girl who wants to hear what ACTUALLY goes on his dudes' heads in certain situations... check them out!

2. Half Marathon Training! As some of you kids know, I'm running the NYC Half Marathon with the St. Jude Heroes team, and I couldn't be happier about this decision. For starters:

- All the money donated goes to the St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital, and as you know, that's near and dear to my heart- being on the Friends of St. Jude NYC Committee.
- Let's be serious: my calves and legs are getting super toned and that's perfect timing for spring (skirts/no tights- woo woo.)
- I'm working out/running because I HAVE to, which makes it a "duh" decision at the end of the day
- I can kinda eat whatever I want and because I'm burning 400-800 calories a day (on days I run,) I'm not gaining anything. I've actually lost a solid 5 lbs and have kept it off for over a month. (HURRAY!)
- PARTY TIME afterwards!
- Oh yeah, and the feeling of accomplishment I'll have after running 13.1 miles (and the ROUTE?! SO amazing! Central Park/Times Square/West Side Highway/South St. Seaport... I mean come on... so awesome.)

Also- if you haven't donated already, please do help (even $5 helps!)

3. Friends Visiting and Typical NYC Living. My friend, Katie, was visiting from Kansas City for the better part of the last month. My coworkers and I pulled her leg easily convinced her, whilst on a business trip to KC ourselves, that she simply HAD to come to NYC to help us with the insanity (see number 1.)

She was here for work (we are coworkers,) but staying with me and our other coworker/friend. We tried our hardest to show her the best NYC experience- from going out at night to eating fun dinners, enjoying drinks, and I even took her to see SNL when I was able to score tickets from their open lottery I applied to last August (#WIN.)
Obviously, she had to experience a fish bowl at Brother Jimmys.

My cousin, Lindsey, came down this past weekend (her first time out and about in NYC!) and I showed her Times Square & Macy's. We had drinks with friends, and went to a special someone's birthday dinner/party until 3AM (undoubtedly one of the longest nights of her life!) She had a blast and I'm hoping she'll come down again when the weather is nicer and there's a ton more things to do in the city. Sister, Maddie, Gillie- if you're reading this, plan a weekend you can all come down and we can have a girls weekend :)

The theme of the party was "Lumberjack Chic," hence the plaid.

So, there you have it. There's been a lot going on this last month. I'm hoping to stock up on some good topics for the next few weeks to write to you about. Most notably:
- MBA (Mission Basically Adult)
- My Favorite Thought Catalog Blogs
- Typical Goings On of a 26 Year Old Chick in NYC during Spring 2012 (which I'm SURE will be your fave.)
