I'm back!!!

I am back in America and back in DC! I landed at DCA last night at 8:30 p.m., made some delicious Japanese curry with Steak, went to bed, and woke up for work. Phew, I'm tired! Today also marks the 8 week point until me and Steak's first 1/2 marathon, so we hit the gym hard this evening.

Firstly, I would like to say how very much I missed Steak! A week is way too long to be apart, despite having been in a long distance relationship for two years. I'm spoiled having him around everyday now that we live together. It was great to have him meet me at the airport last night.

I missed this face!

Although I missed Steak very much, I had an amazing time on vacation with my family. We went to Harry Potter world at Islands of Adventure, Universal Studios, and the Disney Cruise! The cruise traveled to Key West, Nassau, and Disney's private island, Castaway Cay. I hugged a sea lion, entered a line dancing competition, and got my first massage ever with my little sister, CJ!

I've returned to Arlington sunburned with a healthy dose of what I like to call the vacation pudge (good thing we're training for our 1/2). Besides work I have a few things to look forward to this week: a date with DateMeDC, dinner with Steak, sister CJ and CJ's best friend from her Ireland travels, and a trip to Wisconsin for a wedding!
I'll be posting many pictures from my vacation this week. I'll leave you with this little teaser: me and CJ with Captain Mickey Mouse!


  1. Awww such a cute pic! You and CJ look so alike! I can't believe you had energy to make dinner when you get home! very impressive. Sounds like a great trip, but must be nice to be home with Steak :) A week is a long time apart...

    Thanks for your comment today - yes, maybe the E Street theater will have it..I hope so!
