This weekend was a total blast. Tiring but fun.

I left work early on Friday and headed to New Jersey first. Didn't think I was going to stop there but at the last minute Jersey boy found out he could get out of the photoshoot early so we could grab dinner. I wasn't nervous to meet him because we had talked online for months and I felt like I knew him already. He took me to this little Mexican restaurant with no tables, just a bar. The food was delicious, the Spanish soap opera in the background was amusing and the conversation flowed easily. I didn't want to seem to into him, but man, the boy is cute.

We talked and talked and then drove around looking for ice cream. I met his parents who seem fun and all of his 5 crazy dogs. We had a quick little peck of a kiss when I left. Awwww. I don't want to get to excited just yet because I don't want to get crushed, but there is something there. He is supposed to come up to Boston two weeks. Yay!

On to Delaware. I didn't get in until after 12:30 (sorry Erika!) even though I hauled ass on the Jersey Turnpike. Saturday morning we all woke up to rain. We decided to still head into Philadelphia, and lucky for us, it never rained. Just stayed overcast. We hit the zoo which was fun.

After the zoo we went to the King of Prussia mall which was GINORMOUS. Right after walking through the front doors we were confronted by some man that was bleeding heavily from his foot region. As we walked into the mall more there were puddles upon puddles of his blood. It made me nauseous. We stopped in a few stores but were all so pooped we took off for dinner. Joe and Erika took me to this awesome Asian restaurant. We went back to their house and I tortured them with watching Twilight! It's an obsession.

Sunday we just hung out around the house. It was so much fun catching up on everything that has been going on in these past years. So glad I went down and I can't wait to hang out again! Micah is just to adorable for words and such a good baby!

Seriously, how am I not getting dates? :)

This week went by fast, it was nice not having school but back to the grind this week.

I'm on week 4 of my running program and I'm feeling SO much better. It's amazing what a little exercise will do in my life. I've even gained weight, but I don't really care. I can tell my clothes are fitting better and I just feel better overall. Today was a tough run though. I made it all the way through but felt like I was going to pass out when it was over.

I can't wait for this weekend! I'm going to see Erika, her husband and her adorable little boy. I think the last time I saw Erika was probably a good 4 years ago, maybe even longer. It'll be nice to catch up. I'm also stopping in NJ on the way down to meet Nick for dinner, which I'm also very excited about. We'll see where it goes.

This weekend was lovely, went by way to fast though. Saturday I went for a jog and then drove to Hyde Park to hang out with Dustin. His mother was their and I absolutely adore her! She brought out so much food, drinks and chatted. It was nice. We watched the movie Lost Highway. I'm not one to usually hate a movie, but it's official, I hated that movie. The movie itself was good, suspenseful, creepy, but it had multiple stories going on and never really closed them or brought them together.

Sunday I went to Southie for the St. Patrick's Day parade. Betsy invited me over to Marks apartment and we partied on the roof deck. From the roof you could see the parade which was fun. No drinking for me which was a bummer, I was the only sober one their. It was nice to catch up with Betsy and hang out with her friends. I met a few new cool people as well. I had to babysit Maddie later that day so I headed out after the parade, making my way through all the drunks on the T. Always fun.

Still job hunting. Still anxious. I hate it but I'm trying not to dwell on it. What happens, happens.

Just last week I was saying to my mom that life was going great, too great. I told her that I was expecting something bad to happen. Boy, I was right. She just called to tell me that the dog died. Just because this week couldn't get any better.

Well, I guess you can add me to the list of people who have lost their job in this economy. Ironically enough, it isn't because of the economy. When L goes on maternity leave they won't be able to pay me as much and her mom is retiring from teaching and will be able to watch the babes during the day. I would still be able to watch N two days a week but financial I can't do that so the job hunt is on.

It gets me a little teary eyed thinking about it. I have come to think of my employers more like my family. I come in every morning and chat/gossip with them. They are my friends, and I'm not just hired help. I've been watching these boys since they were just little blobs laying on the carpet, and now they are big kids. Granted, they are the slowest walkers known to mankind but that will be my mission before I leave. So, it's going to be sad to leave and it's a little scary knowing that I won't have a job after April. I started putting in resumes last night as soon as I found out. Not having a job is not an option. I have bills and rent and nowhere to go if I can't afford them.

Everything will work out though and I just need to stay positive. With school, finals and life it's just a little overwhelming.

Random picture taken at Wait St. last weekend. Seems appropriate now.

Since my lovely lovely mother sent me money to take my friends out to dinner, I made her happy and took them out last night. We walked from Mission Hill to the South End at had dinner at the Beehive. The weather was amazing, so nice for walking around Boston. The restaurant was cool, it was in a basement with exposed brick and chandeliers. Heather, Dan, Julian and I each got awesome food, mine being a very rare burger. It was delicious. They also have frites which are a type of french fry that were soooo good.

After dinner we decide to walk to the North End to get cupcakes. If we are going to eat shitty we might as well eat really shitty, right? While walking there the city was re-enacting the Boston Massacre. Apparently they do this every year, except none of us knew about it. HA. We also watched break dancers for a bit who were insane.

For cupcakes we stopped at LuLu's and got 4 different flavor cupcakes to split. Carrot (me, still on that kick), orange creme, vanilla and oreo. Splitting them 4 ways was so fun, we each got to try all the different flavors and ended up only eating one cupcake. It started raining as we were sitting in the park so we started walking back. We got a wild to go see the Watchmen so we walked to the Common and hunkered down for the longest. movie. of. my. life. Good thing it was entertaining!

After the movie we then made the walk home. My body was so tired by the time I got home, I was a happy little clam when I got to crawl in bed.
