So, it’s been a little while. Just a little. I’m currently stuck at the Newark International Airport on a 4 and a half hour flight delay. I’m now scheduled to depart at 12:20 a.m. for my last-minute #puremichigan weekend. But I’m pretty excited to go home to the Mitten State and hopefully take advantage of the sun, go swimming and boating a little up north.

But what have I been doing this summer? Well, it’s been quite an unexpected summer. Things always happen differently than you expect, I think. Sure, there’s the awesome stuff you know will happen, such as the rooftop party me and some girlies are on our way to in the photo above. Rooftop parties are my jam. Seriously. If you’re trying to get me to go somewhere with you and you say “Rooftop” somewhere in the sentence, you’ve just increased your odds of my attendance at least 60%. So that’s good.

Something that was unexpected: A trip to Hawaii! Yep. That happened. Booked it about three weeks before we were leaving and I got to use Delta Sky Miles so my flight was all of $10. Deal of a CENTURY. And the trip was amazing. Some photo highlights below.

 

This is my hair doing some amazing tricks at Pali Lookout in Oahu.

 

AMAZING fish tacos at Paia Fish Market. Maybe my favorite meal there, but don’t tell Jackie because she didn’t have any. (Crazy girl)

Hello adults-only pool! Aka the best creation ever! You didn’t have to worry about some kid throwing a ball at your head or accidentally being kicked by some 8-year-old boy wearing Googles. Yeah, I’m not into that. I was, however, very into the SLIDE, which was not a part of the adults-only pool, obviously, but was worth dealing with a bunch of ten year olds every time.

One of the coolest things we did: ZIPPING! Can you see how high we are? Can you see how easy it would be for us to FALL INTO OUR DEATHS? I kid. Safety first! But it still was a little freaky deaky. I am dying to come back and do this with my mom and sisters, the look on all their faces while we did this together would be PRICELESS.

So that’s pretty good. Not sure if I can beat a trip to Hawaii the rest of this summer, but I’m going to see what I can do. Summer is funner, even when it’s 900 degrees like it currently is all over America. Global warming is serious people. And next year there will be no Polar Bears and we will all be sad.

Omg the airport lady is walking around giving out blankets right now while we’re STILL SITTING IN THE AIRPORT! A little over an hour and a half to go until we finally, finally (supposedly) board. Cross your fingers for me! Until next time, City Mitten.

I feel like I have sort of abandoned this blogmobile for my Google+ page. But it wasn’t on purpose! The new update page on WordPress is not my favorite and all my photos automatically give me the option to share on Google+ anyway. But City Mitten, I’ll always love you. So I’ve decide to say hello with some of my favorite (cell phone) shots from the past few weeks.

My homegirl Michelle came to visit this weekend and one of the many awesome things we did included a trip to Yankee Stadium to see The Detroit Tigers (and they won!). We got some garlic fries and moved to the lower level and had an overall good time. She’s easy to hang with when she’s here, I don’t have ro run around like a chicken with my head cut off so I really appreciate that.

Here’s a work-related photo of myself that I really dig:

That’s me, on the internet. Or more specifically, that’s me being projected onto a wall at the latest Zagat 30 Under 30 party in New York. Holla!

Speaking of 30 Under 30, after the event (and after the after-party), a group of us headed over to Parm for some late-night eats. These eats included ice cream cake, as you do.

Well, hello.

And finally, the last picture I’ll include in this update is me and some of my girlies after Easter brunch at Almond. My dad was in town for Easter and was really impressed with Almond (as was I, great place!) and so here I am with some of my girls.

Good times!

I  may have some other updates in the pipeline here, but this is all for now. Good night!

I’m still here!

Hello, hello. Just taking a moment to stop by City Mitten with an announcement… I’m still here!

I haven’t blogged in over a month. It’s a combination of work and a kind of broken laptop, and the fact that I need to figure out where to house all my very large photo files before my personal laptop really goes kaput. Any suggestions?

But things have been good, good, good. Above is me at the office and my homegirl KP stopping by to say hello. Fun how many people want to visit your office once you start working at Google. :)

I have some photos from my New Year’s Eve trip with Norabear to Texas, and my goal is to start having some ready to put up by Monday! Big goal!

5 highlights from the last month or so which I have no photos for:

1) Renting a car and taking a min-roadtrip to Westchester with my girlies for some hockey, as well as to New Jersey for Jason Wu for Target the next day

2) Having a new favorite bar that is literally across the street from work (Hello, Tippler!).

3) My Zogsports volleyball team. It’s my second season with this crew and we actually have a winning record right now! I’m very excited to be with these people because it’s so fun and I hope I play with them every season for my entire life. Ha!

4) Taking a limo across town with a few friends a couple weeks ago after a work event. You can’t fit five people in one cab, so what’s the next best thing? A limo. With half-full bottles of bub.

5) Weekends. My favorite! Whether it was going to friends and family at Talde or spending time at the New York Aquarium and walking a very abandoned winter Coney Island Boardwalk, I think I’ve been taking pretty good advantage.

More to come!
