What’s Going On

Lots of exciting updates around here. Like this.

Justin and Dina Graduation

After three long years, J graduated from Law School. I am so proud of him!

Now the fun part begins where he spends the next 10 weeks studying full-time to take the bar in July.

The cats are also equally impressed by J.

Cats Are Impressed with J

(Something scary happened when I went to find the above picture on my computer. I typed in the word cat and thousands of pictures came up. I may have a problem.)

J’s parents came down from Connecticut to see the graduation which was nice. We do not get to see them that often because of the distance.

Family for graduation

We celebrated by finally eating at First Watch. J and I have meant to eat there for years but it is hard to get into Orlando for breakfast.

French toast demolished. Graduation day for my husband.

Even though I have not been writing about it much, there has been running. I am currently reading Run Faster From The 5K To The Marathon by Brad Hudson and Matt Fitzgerald.

Run Faster From The 5K To The Marathon by Brad Hudson and Matt Fitzgerald

I will be running sub-30 minute 5K’s this summer if it kills me (which it might, it is Florida.)

Lakeland Runners Club Watermelon 5K 2013

The first race is June 1st and I am ready to race.

F Is For Failure

I took today off so I could see Breaking Dawn at the midnight premiere. At 8 PM last night, I decided to take a quick nap, so I could stay awake for the movie. I set an alarm and assumed J would wake me up if it got too late. I woke up in a panic at 3 AM, missing the movie, and completely screwing up my sleep schedule.

The alarm I set never went off because it was sent for Saturday. J fell asleep on the couch, so he could not wake me up. Luckily, J agreed to come see the movie with me tonight but there is just something special about midnight screenings.

Moving onto more positive things, I am trying to learn how to take decent pictures. I expect the learning curve to be great but want to share my progress.

Tail Laying Down Edited_edited-1

I used the High Pass Sharpen Tutorial to make Tail extra cute in Photoshop. I would like to find a tutorial to get a cat to stop moving when you are attempting to photograph them.

J and his football snacks. The cheese is an aged Pecorino infused with black truffle. J is obsessed with this cheese and has made special trips to The Cheese Shop on Park for it.

My favorite dinner of the week, Creamy Baked Macaroni and Cheese. It was so good and the perfect winter comfort food.

Has your week been full of fail? Do you think I should have set two alarms?
