After receiving my own new Fall-inspired look this weekend (more/pictures to come on that major life event... :) ), I decided that my bloggy might just be craving a little change too. So if you're one of my loyal Google Reader subscribers, A. Thank you!!, and B. Try clicking through to check the site out...

What do you think? It's obviously nothing too drastic - I'm trying out this fun template from The Cutest Blog on the Block for now. I didn't get as much time to play around with it on Sunday as I wanted, so there will probably be some tweaks here and there in the next week or so. Hopefully this will tide me over until I finally make up my indecisive mind about what exactly I want for a customized design... Speaking of which, anyone have any reco's of good bloggy designers that I should check out??

Hope y'all are having a Happy Monday!

Chick-fil-A v. Boys

All I've wanted to do since last night was blog about the fabulous time that was this weekend, i.e. Alyssa's Return to NYC/Philly Road Trip '09 for Megan's Half Marathon!! However, life/sleep/lack of proper lunch hour just haven't allowed for such things. It will come eventually, but in the meantime, please enjoy Kristen's and my brief and to-the-point Gchat convo on the events:

Kristen: i know you're busy, but i just thought i'd tell you that i'm patiently awaiting a blog post on this weekend :) that's all

me: hahaha you read my mind! it’s annoying when life is too busy to blog ;)

Kristen: i know it

Kristen: i hate it when corporate america rains on my parade

Kristen: btw, any Reid [Rosenthal, a.k.a. Alyssa’s and my adorable husband-to-be Philly native of the latest season of The Bachelorette] sightings?!

Kristen: i figured there would be hysterics

Kristen: so i'm going to err on the "no" side of things...

me: hahahha… sadly, nope. other than Alyssa finding a local Philly mag with his face on the cover

me:but there WAS chick-fil-a involved... which is perhaps just as delicious

Kristen: haha, absolutely

Kristen: chick-fil-a never disappoints, boys do

Ha. Done and... done.

I Want to Go to There. Now.

Happy happy Friday! Universal Orlando revealed more details this week about the opening of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter... Oh. Yes. Needless to say, I may have spent the last few days geeking out watching the below video of 3-D renderings of the theme park on repeat...

Weeee!!! Now if only I had a magic wand so that I could make Spring 2010 get here immediately... Kidding. Kind of.

City Skyline to Big Sky

I'm having a hard time believing that by the time today ends, my view will have gone from this...

... to this...

Sigh. They don't call it the "Treasure State" for nothing.

I'm headed back to my roots for the first time in about 5 years to celebrate my Grammy's 79th birthday! A long weekend full of love and laughter with my family, surrounded by some of the most breathtaking land on this earth... Can't. Wait.

A Soul Awake

(via Blissful Self... and p.s. J. Mart: This one made me think of your pretty face, in particular. xoxo)
