The good, the bad, and the ugly of the weekend.

The good: Brunch Saturday afternoon was fabulous. I went with some teacher friends. Let's just say, there was a dj, some serious dancing, and I worked off my yummy brunch. I work with some pretty great dancers, er uh I mean teachers. (Shout out Ms. T, I know you're reading)

The good: Our friends invited us to be part of their wedding ceremony! Our other friend, Mr. A, is trying to become a minister to perform the ceremony. We'll see if it happens, but if it does...watch out married couples everywhere. Congrats Ms. K and Mr. S!

The good: I ran a fabulous 4 miles Sunday. It was fast and COLD (21 degrees). I think I'm a cold weather runner to the core.

The good: My playoffs outfit was CUTE! Football arm warmers, Lambeau Puppy Packer jersey'd up...gosh it was great. His friend Benji Puppy came to play in HIS Packer jersey too! I loved the texts etc exclaiming, "Oh, THAT'S why your dog is named Lambeau!" If you haven't heard, it's the Packers stadium name.
The good: Green and yellow football food! It was seriously a great spread. Love football food. LOVE. IT.
The bad: We lost. To the Giants. I live in NYC. However, you'll be proud to know that I purposely shake Giants fan's hands, congratulate them, and move on. No use in being a baby; they beat us like we stole something.

The ugly: I put all our Packers party gear in storage. Sigh. So sad.
There is a mixed label for what comes next.

The happy: Having breakfast with my nephew E1 (3 1/2) and niece E2 (1 1/2). Yes, they both have names with E. Challenging for blogging initials...
The yummy: Chocolate milk and chocolate chip pancakes!
The funny: Chocolate chip pancakes FACE!
The cute: "Yambo, kisses!" E2 loves to get kisses. Lambeau puppy gives them...willingly. He doesn't like being chased, but he sure does love a taste of E2 babe.

The sad, yet not so sad. My sister, her husband, and two of the cutest kids beginning with the letter E whom I refer to as "my babalas", moved to California today. Yes, that's far away. Yes, my kiddos are far away. Yes I have Skype. Yes I am excited for their new opportunities. No, I'm not happy that CA is far away. No, I'm not happy my kiddos are far away. However, I have to focus on the positives (Skype and new opportunities of course). I love them so much. I miss them already. I won't see them until JUNE...a great month for me anyway. It will become anexceptional month with their visit.

Mr. & Mrs. Waite, E1 and E2: We pray that you will have a smooth transitions, lots of new friends, and a great community to surround you as you settle! But Remember: No one replaces Aunty Kristin.

Did I mention a certain RYAN HALL goes to the church they'll be going to? Jealous.

Running and Cross training my way because it's...
