Sorry!  Haven't posted in awhile.  Frankly, I've thought about it but just haven't had a lot to say.  In a nutshell, I'm working nights, living in the burbs, Jon is still contracted at NBC in Decatur for the next few months and is looking for a new job up here or a career change.  We're still doing this crazy long-distance thing.....which has tested this relationship more than anything EVER has, in 10 years.  It is HARD.  but I have to visits with my future Hubs are so amazing and wonderful.  When we're comfortable and married, I think I'll miss those visits when we held on to each other like 16 year olds, afraid that if we let go, we'd lose each other forever.  I fall in love with my handsome fiancĂ© over and over again during every visit.  Absence makes the heart grow fonder.  It sure as hell does.  It also makes arguments a little more explosive, let me tell you.  Distance is not for the faint of heart.  And the distance means nothing when someone means everything.

Moving on.... started a bible study a few weeks ago with my sweet, funny friend Jaci whom I met at work. I knew the instant I met her that we'd connect, and during our first coffee/study, we totally clicked and figured out that many of our trials, happys, funnys, frustrations, loves, all kinda matched up.  I think we'll be lifelong friends.  The first book we're studying is about Joy (choosing joy by choosing God).  It's a little light to be honest, but it sparks some good conversations and we plan on delving into something a little deeper once we get our studies going strong and regular.  My favorite part of our last study was telling each other our deepest secrets--- what we were worried about and what we needed PRAYER for.  We vowed to pray for the other throughout the next week until we met again (which is tomorrow for lunch in the Nordstroms' Cafe---YUM).   I look forward to growing in our friendship, as sisters in Christ, and closer to our God.

Finally, workout central.  Getting a little antsy after 6 months of treadmill running.  We're starting to see little glimpses of spring here and there and I CANNOT WAIT to get out there and get some of these double digit runs done on the pavement.  I've also upped my workouts to 6-7 days a week instead of 5-6 and I'm definitely seeing a difference.  This will only increase as the wedding gets closer.  I foresee some 2-a-days in the near future.

Alright have a great weekend ya'll!  hope you're enjoying the snow/rain at home this weekend and not at work like me!
