A Little Update

Well I haven’t blogged in almost two months so I guess it’s time for a little (big) update.

Gretchen and I went to Thailand the weekend after Labor Day. We had the best time! Unfortunately we stillllllllll need to go through and edit the photos so I only have one picture for this post.

I flew to Philly after Thailand for Natalie’s wedding! It was such a fun weekend :) Natalie and I headed down to Cape May on Friday afternoon and her parents threw a lovely cocktail party that night. On Saturday morning Natalie and I went on a run by the beach, followed by beach yoga led by our friend Noreen. It was such a wonderful way to start the day.

Alicia, Natalie and I headed back to Natalie’s parent’s house to get ready for the big day. It was so much fun spending time with Natalie and Alicia. I love those girls and we don’t get to hang out enough since we all live in different states. Natalie was the most beautiful bride!!!!!

I got to see so many friends from college and high school. It was awesome to catch up with everyone!

I was kind of in a funk after I got back from Thailand/Philly/Cape May. It wasn’t really one particular thing but there were just a bunch of little things. 1 – I was sad that the trip was over and jealous that Gretchen was still in Ton Sai. 2 – There was some crazy work stuff going on with the government shutdown. 3 – Fall and Spring in Bozeman are kind of crazy weather-wise and you never know what to expect, making it hard to get out and do stuff. October is usually told cold for climbing or biking but not cold enough for ice climbing, skiing and snowboarding.

Anyway, it’s not like I was just sitting home on my butt. Liz and I went to the demolition derby, I did some mountain and road biking, we did some (chilly) rock climbing one day followed by a trip to Chico hot springs, and we had a super fun pumpkin carving party.

This past weekend was actually a lot of fun. Thursday night was the “Women Who Workout and Wine” event, sponsored by Bozeman Running Company which is always a fun time. The night started off innocently enough but of course we got a little rowdy.

On Friday, Gretchen, Jen and I headed to Missoula. Gretchen and I had tickets to the Hank 3 concert and Jen was surprising our friend Meg with a visit.

We had to get Hank shirts of course.

We went out with Meg and Jen after the concert and it was an awesome night. I love Missoula!

On Sunday, Gretchen, Aaron and I went up to Hyalite to do some dry tooling. Unfortunately, Aaron cracked a rib dirt biking last weekend so he wasn’t able to climb but he did belay us which was awesome. The routes we were on were pretty hard but it was definitely good practice for ice climbing.

It’s getting pretty cold this week so maybe we’ll find some ice to climb next weekend ;)
