Ahh! Hello again. Remember me? I’d like to apologize for my brief hiatus from blogging. Life has been a whirlwind recently with my sister Lacie’s wedding and running in the Pittsburgh Marathon Relay.
It’s not going to stop, I’m lucky enough to be in my good friend Laura’s wedding this weekend! I don’t plan on disappearing again on you though.
Here’s a recap of what I’ve been doing.
Pittsburgh Marathon Relay May 5, 2013:
I was the last leg of the relay, I ran a 4.7 mile portion of the course. I was lucky enough to cross the finish line! It was an amazing energy with cheers and signs on the sidewalks all the way into the city of Pittsburgh.
We handed our team members medals as they crossed the line. This one was for Laura. The photo below is of her running to me.
Here’s our running team! We had one member who left before the end of the race. In all we had 5 runners. Brian, Dan, Maureen, Laura, and Me. Combined we ran 26.2 miles.Though we didn’t win, I hit a personal best running less than a 10 minute mile for my portion. I was very pleased with my results.
Now on to the Wedding! My little sister married her best friend on May 11th, 2013. Lacie shared a how to post with us describing the lanterns she made for the reception, you can read that here. We all had a great time and thought the ceremony and reception were so beautiful.
Lacie and Zack’s Wedding May 11, 2013.
I’m happy to share these photos with you. I’m looking forward to sharing great photos after Laura’s Wedding! Laura and Brian are my running buddies in the group photo above.
I am back to regular posting this week! What have you been up to? I’d love to hear your May adventures in the comments below.

Today I’d like to share a couple of personal photos from my trip to Las Vegas! If you’ll recall last Thursday’s post, I got a nasty blister on my first day. Ouch! The trip was fantastic and we had a great time. Sadly, I did not go home a winner but we still had fun
The Las Vegas Statue of Liberty - Just like home.
A bit of the NAB Conference.
Conference floor, continues on and on!
The most exciting part of my trip! Breakfast with Betty.

We had dinner here one night. It was delish.

I love that spring is the beginning with new growth and possibilities. We are lucky to have more sun and The past two weeks has presented new growth. The bulbs I planted in the fall are blooming. It’s like buried treasure! I have hyacinths, daffodils, and tulips. Accompanying them are lovely pink and yellow primroses and the beginnings of my day lilies.
How is your garden looking?
This week I had a visit from my sister Tori and her husband Andrew. We took advantage of the beautiful weather and what New York, New Jersey, and Philadelphia had to offer! Here are some photo highlights.

Bird with Squeaky Toy.
I was so entertained that they gave the zoo animals toys that Roxy plays with. The wild dog had kong toys and this bird (not sure what he is?) had a squeaky toy.
