Still recovering...

from a ridiculous weekend. Laura, Amy and I threw Peg a party for her birthday. We had lots of food and drink and friends. The party was a definite success, but I am still feeling the after effects, 2-3 days later! I did drag my a$$ out of bed a worked out at the gym for 30 minutes to get the toxins out of my body ;). I am definitely going to be the designated driver tomorrow (Halloween night) as even the thought of alcohol is making me a bit ill.

The moon...

is beautiful tonight. The sky is absolutely clear and the moon is full and shining brightly. I don't have the proper equipment to take a photo, but I just wanted to remembe this moment.

We *heart* NYC

Joe and I just returned from our favorite city yesterday morning. Needless to say I was fairly tired at work! We didn't even go out clubbing as much as we used to, but all that walking around and shopping and eating too much and drinking too much can be exhausting! Not to mention waking up at 3:50 AM to catch a 5:45 AM flight!
Highlights of the trip: watching Xanadu, the musical, disco night at Splash (although Lady Bunny wasn't spinning as good music as she usually does, but there were a few couples who had to be professionals or dance instructors because they were great dancers!), running in Central Park and finding a cool denim sample sale in Soho and buying a pair of True Religions and Rock and Republic jeans for half off each! We took Bill and Juan to dinner on Monday night at this fun Thai restaurant and ate way too much. Afterward we had dessert at this Italien wine bar. I had their Nutella panini with vanilla gelato - delicious! However, now I feel like I need to do a dietary cleanse and eat nothing but fruit and cereal for the next few days.
I will post pictures soon!

Redder is better

I love my new hair color. Luis just did an overall color of red. Since I already had hightlights in my hair some sections are lighter than others. I definitely like the darker color, although I feel I have to wear more makeup because the contrast between my hair and skin is greater. We'll see how long that lasts!

Goodbye roots

I am getting my hair colored/highlighted today during my lunch hour and cut on Thursday. I think I am going to go a little darker with a little red. I also want my hair to be shorter. Still long in the front but shorter in back. I want to be a bit edgier. The problem with short hair is that is grows so fast. With my hair, it just wants to be a bob-length, which is fine but a bit boring to me. Hopefully Luis and David will come up with something fabulous!

Me today

I had a lunch date with a hot guy today. (Blogger is not allowing me to upload anymore photos so more to come laters.) We enjoyed the warm, non-humid weather and were actually able to eat outside!
Don't you love my new tote! I love bags. My sis Ting turned me onto Tory Burch. I bought a white patent leather tote for the summer and I bought this hot pink one in support of Breast Cancer. It's all for a good cause!

Photo of the Day

Two posts in one sitting...I obviously have some time today. We always have our running shoes right outside our front door, so we don't track dirt into our house. Seeing them always puts a little smile on my face. One, it reminds me of Joe and his love for running. Two, it reminds me of our early morning runs together (we don't necessarily run together but we wake up at the crack of dawn together). And three it makes me appreciate that I am fit and healthy and able to run. I want to appreciate the little things in life, the everyday routine stuff, because they may someday change.
I did a POTD album for Sept and am going to continue for as long as I can. We'll see how it works out!

A little late

We went to a fundraiser for an AIDS charity this past Sunday afternoon. The theme was white in Oct, which explains some of the white clothes. Marc and Richie were wearing white pants, which you can't see in the photo.
The party was held at this fabulous house just a few blocks from us. On the top floor they had a cool view of the city, so I took the opportunity to shoot some photos (surprise surprise). Unfortunately the sun was in our eyes, which is why my eyes look even smaller than usual.
The weather here can always be better, but I can't complain that in October I can still wear a tank top and not be too cold!

It never fails

Today was a day filled with scrappy goodness. I left my car at the shop, had the day off, so since I couldn't go anywhere, I just scrapped to my hearts content.
Now, as I am about to hit the hay, however, my allegies attack me all of the sudden. I have been fine all day only to start sneezing and getting a runny and itchy nose. I don't remember my allergies being this bad since I moved to Houston. I don't like to take Claritin before I go to bed because I am afraid it will keep me up, so I guess I will have to suffer. Wish me luck!

Life is precious

Our good friend Amy W is the youngest of 5 siblings. Her older siblings all have kids so she is auntie to many nieces and nephews. This past week one of her nephews, who was only 20 or 21, chose to take his own life. My heart and prayers go out to Amy and her family. Although I did not personally know this young man, I feel so terrible that he would find life so unbearable as to end it when he hasn't really lived yet. We are going to the funeral this morning to let Amy and her family know that we love them and suffer with them.
I think of myself as a pretty positive person but stuff like this always makes me sad. It also makes me appreciate what I have: a wonderful hubby, a fabulous (but crazy) family and friends I know I can count on. At the end of the day, these are the only things that really matter. And these are the things that make life worth living. Michael, wherever you are, I hope you are in a better place now than before and I hope you find the peace that you were searching for.

Breakfast of champions

In an attempt to be more healthy and not consume whole boxes of cereal at a time, I have changed my breakfast routine. Oatmeal with bananas and cinnamon are my new fare. I must admit that this is quite tasty although I still haven't gotten totally over my cravings for a large bowl of cereal yet.

Guilty Pleasures

I admit it. I love TV that a 14 year old girl probably loves. This is what happens when the majority of your friends are fabulous gay men - you can't let go of your youth!

Early birds

We are getting back into our routine of getting up early to work out. Joe is crazed and gets up at 4 am to ride his bike for about an hour; I woke up at 5 and we both went running. I think my body is getting used to the fact that the sun isn't coming up as early now as it did just last month!

Happy October

We finally have some pictures on the wall. After living here only two years. Yes, I am the world's worst procrastinator, as Joe will definitely attest to. I will post some photos tonight.
I can't believe it's almost time for Halloween! Time seems to go by faster and faster...
