Party Like It’s Your Birthday

So this year was my 31st birthday. Gah I’m old!

This year we decided to rent a cabin in the poconos. Jill’s birthday is the day after ours so we all celebrated together!

Birthday

As an old lady now, it’s nice to just hang out with my friends. We had a good time.

Where the house was there was a lake nearby. In the summer you could go there, but we wanted to see what it looked like in the winter.

Frozen Lake

I was surprised that it was frozen over. I mean it was cold, but not SUPER cold.

I braved the shores first. Once I realized it was REALLY frozen, I went further out.

Yay to still being adventurous at 31!

Catskills Birthday Cabin

Last year Cindy had her birthday party at a cabin in the Catskills. It was a lot of fun and she decided to do it again this year.

I had to work Friday and Cindy was late so we didn’t leave until 8:30. It’s a four hour drive so we didn’t get to the cabin until almost 1am!

Catskill Mountain House

I napped a little in the car so I was able to stay up for a little while when we got there. The house was great. It had a hot tub! I went to bed at 3am which is LATE for me, but everyone else went to bed at 5!

The next morning when we woke up we could actually see the property!

We had our own lake!

It was rainy in the morning so we made breakfast and then we went exploring when the rain stopped.

On the property map they said there was an old bus. We decided to go and find it. It took a little bit, but we finally found it!

When I saw bus I thought old vintage VW bus or something. This was an old army bus!

The inside was pretty creepy. I feel like a homeless person might have lived in it at some point. There was all random stuff.

We all brought food for a pot luck dinner so we made everything when we got back.

After Ralph made a fire. He had some things that made the flames different colors. It was a nice night out, but still cold.

After we went in the hot tub for a little. We were all pretty tired from the day so we didn’t stay up too late.

The next morning it was beautiful out.

What a great weekend!

My Life Recently

So I realized that I haven’t really posted anything about my life in general recently.

I have been crazy with my new job, new city and trying to adjust. I don’t have as much time to write anymore. I try to get a whole week done on Sunday, but if I can’t then I usually just wind up skipping days.

Majority of my recent posts have been from my Mediterranean Cruise. Now that I have fully updated everyone on my adventure, I can start writing about general life.

So on that note here are a few things that have been going on recently.

Rutgers

Rutgers games have started again. I have only been to one so far, but I love football season! Mainly for the tailgates haha

Valley Forge

Running at Valley Forge after work has been beautiful lately. It is the perfect time of the year, but we are going to be out of sun soon.

Bird in Hand Half

Fall is half marathon season. Cheryl and I ran the Bird-in-Hand Half Marathon. Now we are also running the Philly Rock and Roll Half on Halloween and the Avengers Half in California!

Wedding

My friends Tori and Henry got married. It was the perfect day to have an outdoor wedding.

Hibachi

I had hibachi for the first time! I went for barb’s 30th birthday and it was awesome!

Mountain House

We went to the Catskill Mountains for Cindy’s birthday. The cabin she rented was the perfect log cabin.

Kaaterskill Falls

Since we were in the area we went to see Kaaterskill Falls again. This time when it wasn’t frozen!

Spirit Week

It was customer service week at work. I dressed up every day for the theme, but Twin Day was my favorite. I mean I have a twin…what better way to represent!

Bridal Shower

I am at that time in my life where everyone around me is getting married! I went to Becky’s shower this past weekend and her bachelorette is next weekend.

SAR 5K

On Sunday we ran the Search and Rescue 5K and won! haha There were not a lot of other people running. It was such a nice day out. I hope the next few weeks stay this way.
