Things are crazy at work, so I haven't had much time to update the blog lately. Each summer, we host a huge, 1,000 person fund-raising event at a horse farm. It is always a beast to pull together, but it usually goes off without a hitch. Preparing for this event has been my life this past few weeks, and I really can't wait for it to be over! If you have been a faithful reader since the beginning, you may remember reading last June about how I got caught in the throes of addiction to Starbucks' Doubleshots. Well, I am happy to report that it is now one year later, and I'm still free from the juice. Even through this stressful week, I haven't given in. (If you didn't catch it last year - you can read about it here: here.)

Here are a few updates until I can get back to a normal posting schedule.

1. We got to celebrate this little guy's birthday this past weekend. It was so great to be with him and his family to celebrate his first birthday.

2. I ran the Skelter for the Shelter 5k on Saturday in 25:45 - winning first place in my age group!

3. I heard from my sister Megan that she got to see Whiplash, the rodeo monkey, live in person at the Irving Poochfest. Check him out - he is so cute!

That's it for now - sorry for the meager offerings. Things will get back to normal around here next week. And by "back to normal" I mean sporadic, shoddy posts!

Haha! Little Whiplash - boy he was a diva if I ever saw one! He came riding out to "Fatboy Slim". Best of luck with the horse party - see if you can book Whiplash for next year! And yay for one year of sobriety from "the juice" as you say.

Also - Beulah and I are looking for apartments in Calabasas - we will be right down the street from the Kardashians! Haha!

First place!!! I'm so proud of you!

And, I'm thrilled for your sake that you are not succumbing to the double shots this summer. I remember last June when you met my parents during one of your highs -- you still managed to make a good impression. :)

I hope the party happens and ends quickly. Are you free this Saturday night, or is that when the festivities happen?

Congrats on the 5k win!! Awesome. :)

And WTF is up with that monkey. It is kinda freaking me out... :P

Keep up the good work- you'll be done soon!

Nice blog. I caught you on RW. I might add you to my blogroll if that's cool.
