3 Exciting May Trips, Playlist, 2.5 miles

Hi Friends!! K... we're not just lucky about winning giveaways, girls! We're SO lucky to have all of these exciting upcoming trips - wow! Can't wait to see all of your pictures and to hear about your upcoming trips. So here's what we have coming up for May...

Exciting May Trip #1: We are going to Birmingham for my besties' Mary and Jimmy's baby girl Emma's baptism. My sister and Zach are coming and Zach's shooting it, and Teresa and Forrest are coming and staying with us, too, at Austin's parents house! Monica and Andy will be there and of course TONS of Birmingham folks - woo! Should be a blasty!



Exciting May Trip #2: We are going to the Dominican Republic! I'm so pumped! We're taking 5 nights to roll out, chill out, and r. e. l. a. x. I'm very excited to get away with Austin! More deets to come!


Exciting May Trip #3: We are going to New York to visit our friend Tyson (we fight over him - originally my High School friend, but became Austin's Atlanta friend when I stayed back for grad school hehe). Austin's been a few times, but i've yet to make it up there so i'm excited!!

Yay! Can't wait! Tyson has LOTS planned for NY so that's exciting, and the Punta Cana trip is being planned by us/Trip Advisor. We chose the Dominican based on Stacy's recommendation - so I trust the area, chain of hotels, etc.

So... back to yesterday! It was kind of a slow one - just worked, ran errands during lunch (bank, gas, Macy's for swimsuits - fail, Forever for random shiz - half fail). Then I worked more, did 2.5 miles on the treadmill after work, and went over to Pappasito's Cantina off Windy Hill to meet up with Stacy's bridesmaids to plan her shower. We had a great meeting and everyone had a TON of ideas. We ended up being there for like 2.5 hours - then I headed home, had a few drinkies with Austin and called it a night. Eats included brunch pizza square, hot chocolate, spaghetti, a light babybel, a few hershey kisses - and then dinner - 1 tortilla stuffed with 1/4 of the chicken fajita order and some guacamole with too many chips and salsa/cheese dip! I ended up at 1,898 calories, 174 carbs, 60 fat grams and 90 protein grams. Here's what I ate.

Loved it!

Man, those are a lot of fun trips coming up! We went to Punta Cana for our honeymoon and LOVED it. It is really beautiful and the all inclusive resorts are fabulous. I've never been to NYC either and want to go so badly!

My favorite thing to do in New York is run in Central Park. There is no place like it!!!

Those trips all sound really fun. I like to see a play in NYC. Last time I went, last summer, we saw Billy Elliott.

There is some Pitbull song that Jason loves. I don't know if it's the same one as on your mix.

Hey there! I just went to Punta Cana last September. It is gorgeous and the people there are super nice and accomodating. I wouldn't recommend the hotel we stayed at but you are all set with yours. I did have my credit card number stolen there though. I only used it once - at the spa at the hotel. Six months later I get a call from Capital One asking me if I purchased gas and auto parts in Santo Domingo. Um. No!

I would go back though. My DH and I want to go to The Sanctuary at Cap Cana. That is supposed to be THE BEST place down there.

NYC fun fun fun!

Joey said...

I think you'll like Punta Cana... Where are you staying? We went last March & stayed at an IberoStar. The food wasn't great but it wasn't horrible either. In general, Punta Cana is a beautiful place to veg out & just relax for a week! Enjoy! :)
