Two for Tuesday

So...I started this Two for Tuesday a couple of weeks ago (before I got crazy with work).  Back when I was trying to catch up on my DVR.  I am clearly a little behind.  But I still stand behind these 2 things - so here they are!

Today's Two for Tuesday has to do with TV.  I don't know about other people, but I am constantly behind in my DVR and always playing catch up.

Up first...

I love the bag Claire carried during the "Disneyland" episode of Modern family from 5.9.12.  I have no idea where it is from, but I desperately want it.  Would be so cute for summer!  If anyone knows, please hit the comments and tell me!

And then...

Did anyone watch Revenge?  If not, you should spend your summer catching up on it.  It is by far one of the best shows on television right now.  The plot is fascinating and really keeps my attention the entire episode.  It is one of the few shows I have to watch on the night it airs (Once Upon a Time being another).  Watch the reruns, get the Season 1 DVD, do whatever it takes, but get ready for Season 2 to start in the fall.

I'm back!

Hi everyone!

Sorry for the month's hiatus from blogging, but it's been a big month for me and blogging took a back seat.  I guess the biggest news is I got a new job.  Anyone who has ever left a job and started a new one knows how crazy those couple of weeks can be.  So that's my excuse.  Sorry!

Starting a new job can be scary, but I (like to) think change is good.  Keeps you from getting complacent.  But now I am one week into my new job and getting settled, so hopefully I'll be able to blog more consistently.  I have about 10 posts how finished because I'd start to write them, but run out of time to finish. Can't wait to get back into a routine.

So to get back into the swing of things, thought I would start with an update on where I am for my 30 by 30 goal.

I ran the Brooklyn Half Marathon on May 19th (a quick race recap will be coming soon) which was number #25!  Only 5 to go!  And those 5 have been decided.  The next up is the Rock n Roll Providence Half Marathon on August 19th.  I ran this one last year (in a monsoon) so should be a good race.  It's a hilly, challenging course which is one of the reasons we went with this one over the the Wild Half since (apparently) the Montreal course is very hilly.

I am also officially registered for the Wine and Dine (and everything except the flight is booked) and Philadelphia half's.  Only thing left to register for is the Disney World Half, which I am hoping to do soon.

26 - Providence Half Marathon (8.19.12)
27 - Virginia Beach Half Marathon (9.2.12)
28 - Disney Wine and Dine Half Marathon (11.10.12)
29 - Philadelphia Half Marathon (11.18.12)
30 - Disney World Half Marathon (1.12.13)
