week in review


Even though I post on an almost daily basis, I decided to link up with Meg’s Week in Review today because it gives me a chance to catch you up on some of the stuff from my everyday life that sometimes falls through the cracks.

Blog Stuff:

I published my usual amount of posts including these three which are worth sharing again in case you missed them:

Easy Run on the Treadmill Workout < – Several of you have tried it and like it just as much as I do which makes me really happy 🙂

Achieving a Balanced Attitude Towards Your Weight < – So glad I finally got this post together!

It’s Okay When What You Eat Changes < – Our taste buds and choices are allowed to vary.

Running Stuff:

I rarely total my weekly mileage but I think, based on a loose calculation right now, I ran something like 43 or 44 miles. I recapped week #3 of half marathon training in yesterday’s post and want to mention again that I really enjoy training with Laura. I am looking forward to week #4 which begins today and includes a 10k race this coming Saturday.

Work Stuff:

I sometimes wonder how my brain juggles, organizes and processes all of the information I am writing about on a daily basis.

I have been busy writing all things event industry-related including the copy for many AllSeated events that are coming up this Spring. I will be attending a few of them (even speaking at one in a few weeks) and, as usual, I am hopeful for a good catered event. I came across this photo from an AllSeated event last year. Sums it up well. If you need me, look by the cake display.

Bar Mitzvah Stuff:

We are just about 6 months away from my son’s Bar Mitzvah. Planning his affair, as I have said before, is definitely a third job but I have got it under control.

What I am currently focusing on:

The invitations < – I am almost done finalizing the design. Trying not to over think these since most people jot down the date and throw the invite in the garbage.

The floorplan layout < – I am still working on picking the best furniture for the kids lounge and how it will be arranged in the event space.

The centerpieces < – We have some ideas but I want to start getting more focused on it so we can finalize the exact color scheme which will help me select the table linens and throw pillows for couches.

Weekend Stuff:

It seemed as though our weekend began Wednesday afternoon when we randomly ended up going to the Islanders game in Brooklyn. My son had off from school both Thursday and Friday so in between getting some work done, I was busy driving him everywhere including baseball hitting clinics both afternoons with his friends.


I squeezed in a much-needed manicure and broke out my favorite Spring bag for the season.

We went to the movies to see My Big Fat Greek Wedding Two (excellent movie!) and I brought lollipops along for the fun.


I managed some time working from my bed after my long run on Saturday. I used to get back in bed all of the time on the weekends which really doesn’t happen often anymore so this was a real treat.

My son had two Bar Mitzvah parties Saturday night so in between picking him up from one and driving him to the next one, I popped into Carlo’s Bakery for some chocolate covered strawberries.

I spent more money on these chocolate covered strawberries than I ever care to admit.

Sunday afternoon we went over to my parents’ house to annoy them. I mean, I am sure they appreciate seeing us but I am also pretty sure we can be annoying.

Although it’s not my fault that my dad told me to try the mini ice cream cones in the freezer from Trader Joe’s.

Trader Joe's Hold The Cone

He should know by now that my style is to take a bite of the chocolate parts and put the rest of the cones back in the box. Maybe that’s weird but it’s how I roll and considering their house used to be my house, I think it’s perfectly acceptable.

What’s on the workout agenda for today?

Do you have any “weird” eating habits?

Last movie you saw?
