smiling on sunday

happy in the sun
today is what looks to be the last of a string of absolutely gorgeous days in the triangle* -- sun with highs in the 70s and lows in the 50s. a beautiful day for a long run or a race, and i can't help but think [and be a little jealous] of all of the marathoners gearing up to run chicago this morning!

i haven't been including too many back-to-back runs, but it's going to be hard to resist the sunshine outside right now. i may end up run/walking it for a little bit of a break -- and bonus: this american life will last longer!

also on the docket for today:
prenatal yoga + fro-yo date [i hope they have PUMPKIN!]
blog clean-up [ie: sidebars!]
espaƱol
the usual: meal-planning/grocery shopping [i am determined to make this WORK this week!] + laundry
edible perspective vegetable fried rice for dinner

simple. relaxed. easy. fun. i'll take it.

* triangle = raleigh, durham, chapel hill

wedding + pix
we attended the wedding of two wonderful friends last night and josh and i had a blast! the whole event was relaxed but so nice, and i loved everything about it, from the downtown durham venue to the DJ to the food [a million different buffet stations + then wedding cupcakes!!]. so many friends from med school/residency were there too, which made things extra special and fun.

and, i have to say, i loved wearing my dress.

the nicely-posed version

the bump's coming-out party!

how it really is:


note:
my ridiculous face
josh's eyes [closed in exasperation, no doubt]
ACC football on in the background

here's my only shot of the bride + groom [so cute . . . and so blurry].

i was too busy dancing [grooving to "get low" with a bump takes it to a new and more awesome level in my opinion] and chatting to take more.

a wonderful night celebrating a fantastic couple -- thank you + congratulations a + d!

enjoy your sunday
i am going to try to stop and appreciate the little things today -- why not?
