So on Friday, I slept in a little bit, went to my dermatologist's office and then to lunch with my sister. Then, we watched an episode of "Raising Hope" that I had on my DVR (which, by the way you should totally watch, it's hilarious!). After she left, I took a nap and did some laundry. Then I met up with Dawn for some yummy Pei Wei and shopping for a friend's birthday gift.
When she went home, I stayed here just relaxing and waiting for Dan to come home for the weekend.
So all in all, a great Friday and start to the weekend. I love days like that. I felt lazy and productive all in one day! Woo!
Today should be fun too: Lunch with Jen, bridesmaid fitting for Jen's wedding, spending time with Dan, and sushi for dinner with Dan and bests :)
Tomorrow: Hopefully brunch with my parents at Ramshead
Have a good weekend!

Unfortunately, where we were standing we could not hear what was being said by the speakers, so I don't have much to tell about what was said there.
*When the entire crowd put up the quiet sign (peace sign) so that everyone could hear the speakers. Only teachers!
So I didn't get home from all of this until about 10pm, so no workout for me tonight. BUT I did get about 2 miles or so in of walking tonight, so that's something!

I haven't seen a change yet in numbers, but I really feel like if I keep this up (which I will) I will start to see SOMEthing. Even if it's just how my pants fit, that would be great for me. I know it's not all about the numbers, and that's ok. I just want to feel good in my clothes, and if I can feel confident in a bathing suit too, that's even better.
Oh! And just so I can never use it as a possibility, I gave up fast food for lent. I also agreed to try harder at getting more sleep. So far, I have stuck to the fast food part, but I'm still working on the sleep!
Speaking of which, I have to get ready for tomorrow and then go get some Z's!
Tomorrow: Presenting to other teachers alllllllllll day (4 sessions of an hour and 20 minutes each), then working out at the gym, going home for dinner and to pack, then driving 4 1/2 hours to VA beach to see Dan for the weekend. I sure hope those energy vitamins keep me energized tomorrow!
Have a good weekend all! :)

It's been a long distance relationship for 3+ years! (and still is) I know it says a lot about our relationship, that we have lasting power, that we would do anything for each other, etc....but it's just so freaking hard ALL. THE. TIME.
All of my friends and co-workers get to see their significant others/spouses every day, or maybe even every other day. I would kill for even just once a week! And I talk to people who have done this for a semester or two in college, and they say, "Yeah, I know how you feel." Um, I'm not really sure that you do unless you've done it for three full years. It is not easy.
Now don't get me wrong... These past three years have been filled with love, happiness, and all the great things of a loving relationship. I love him more than anything and truly can't see myself with anyone else and I know that he feels the same.
But, MAN! Sometimes I just want to scream because I just want to see him in person and get a hug and NOT talk on the phone for a day. Sometimes it feels like I have an every other weekend boyfriend when others have a every day boyfriend and it's just not fair!
Not to mention the fact that our main communication is our cell phones. It sucked all the fun of using cell phones. I can't tell you how many times we have to clarify what the other person said because we can't hear, or we're distracted, etc. Or how many times we just don't have all that much to say on the phone because you feel like you're under pressure to say something because again, this is the only form of communication that we will have today. And yet it's weird, because in person stuff like that doesn't happen. But when you're on the phone, and there's silence...it's just so daunting! Like that silence MUST be filled with talk otherwise this phone conversation is pointless. Who wants to hear breathing on the phone anyways?
Ok, I'm done. I could actually go on and on, but I don't want to seem too down on this. I love my boyfriend and I love our relationship. I just feel myself becoming soooo impatient waiting for a short distance relationship. Be ready people, because when that day comes I will be shouting for joy and running all over the place with relief! :)
