What a whirlwind my life has been for the last week and a half. Apologies for the mini hiatus from blogging but I have had a busy first half of May. I can’t believe its my birthday week already. I am looking forward to another fun week. Last week my life was taken over by work functions for 4 straight days and nights. Then this past weekend my family came to visit. We had an absolute blast. It was the first time since Mr. Dr. turned 30 that my sister, boyfriend and parents were all here together. We really had the best time. Friday was a beautiful day here and my parents and I spent all day outside enjoying what this great city has to offer. From boats to Broadway we had such a nice time together. Then on Saturday when my sister and her boyfriend arrived, Mr. Dr. was done his shift and we were all able to enjoy a great steak dinner together celebrating my birthday, my sister receiving her Masters, and a belated Mother’s Day. I always feel so lucky when my family comes to visit. Not only does it mean so much, but we enjoy each other’s company whatever state we are in and no matter what we are doing. The end to the weekend was tough because Mr. Dr. was back at work and I had to say goodbye to my family and come home to a lonely apartment. Sometimes its nice to have the quiet, alone time to unwind from a weekend of festivities but other times, I want nothing more than to rewind back to the day before and relive it all over again. Did anyone watch the Preakness? It wasn’t the most exciting race but it’s kind of fun when a non-favorite wins. It spiced things up a bit.
Anyway, with the big 2-9 coming up this Thursday I am looking forward to spending some more qt with Mr. Dr. this week. We have dinner plans at a new restaurant we have been wanting to try and I have new bottle of Greygoose that I can’t wait to pop open. 28 has been a good year but nothing too climactic occurred. Same city, same apartment, same husband, same crazy schedule and the same crazy times. Although I do think in the last year Mr. Dr. and I have enjoyed a new transition. For the most part, our Friday nights have gone from “where are we partying” to “what movie are we watching after dinner.” Not going to lie…I kind of love it. Perhaps that means I am official graduating to adulthood. That and I wake up with the worst hangovers when I drink too much. I used to bounce right back. Not anymore. In any case, yay for birthday week and I will be embracing 29 with open arms.
Here are some highlights from this past weekend. Can’t wait for them to come back soon.
