I’m sorry I have not posted in a week. The good news is that I’m alive–just a victim of too much celebrating and too slow an internet connection.
I am at the Outer Banks (in North Carolina) this week with my family, for one last vacation before I go back to the real world–UGH.
I know what you’re thinking–two vacations in three weeks? Not fair! Well, with my school and Eric’s new job, we haven’t taken a vacation since our honeymoon last year, so we crammed a couple in in between me finishing up school and starting work again (ugh).
In fact, these last few weeks have been all about celebrating.
Last week I met up at Surfside with some of the my lovely tri friends–Emily, Lauren, Victoria, Sarah, and Chloe and Stephanie–to celebrate Emily’s amazing Ironman finish and Stephanie’s great race the weekend before.
Half-price margaritas, tacos, friends, and ice cream? I can’t think of a better way to celebrate!
While I may not be able to keep up with these amazing ladies/athletes/Ironwomen/Ironwomen-to-be in my training right now, I can certainly keep up with them in the eating department. How does that saying go? “If you can’t beat ’em, eat with ’em?” That’s it…right?
And, on Friday, July 29, 2011, I
miraculously officially received my Master’s degree!
And celebrated with my family!
And now I’m at the beach celebrating summer and being done with school with my mom, dad, brother, sister, husband, sister’s boyfriend, aunt, uncle, brother’s friend, and 3 dogs…it’s a packed and crazy fun house!
I am already having nightmares about going back to “real” work next week. Any tips for readjusting?
