Friends, love, and collaborations.

Hey, y’all. I’ve had too much fun in the last couple weeks. I’ve tried to squeeze in all of my favorite things. Here’s a recap, heavy on the photos. šŸ™‚
I went for a nasty, slushy, slippery run with George.

Twinsies.

I had an amazing lunch with Nancy and Rickopedia. Two wonderfully kind people, two intelligently training athletes. Whenever I catch up with them, I leave 1) smiling, and 2) smarter. Or at least with a good running head screwed on my shoulders.

Rainbow trout pedicure… yes, I invented it.

Lunch with Jake, an uplifting, funny, caring, drummer. He says, “Hi!”

Lunch with Bill. I have spring fever, and he’s rooting for cold weather.

Happy Valentine’s Day to me! Brian made my day by grilling out for dinner and bringing my flowers and my favorite kinds of dark chocolate.

I did a photo shoot at Bistro 212 for their Valentine’s Dinner. Love the owners, love the chef, love the food. Here’s a few of my favorites.

I even dolled up for the occasion. Well, that… And it was date night. B and I headed over to Waupaca to hear our favorite Peach play.

We met with Jim and Megan to finalize photo plans for their 2014 wedding. I’ve known Megan since junior high, so it was wonderful to reconnect over something as lovely as a wedding šŸ™‚

I got my car back, too. šŸ™‚ no picture, just pure happiness over here. Two weeks without it really reminded me of how blessed I am to have a vehicle of my own.
One more shoot over at 212, with some of their trainers and a TRX demo.

A few training runs with Brian, getting him ready for next weekend’s Bock run… But I forgot to take many photos. Picture a red-faced, happy couple. šŸ™‚ here’s one that B took. šŸ™‚

I went to Katrina Shankland’s public office hours to ask questions and learn more about the mining bill currently in our state.

20130224-204521.jpg
I went up to Wausau to meet my friend, Melissa. She works for the Girl Scouts, and I’m working on a top-secret super-awesome collaboration between GSA and Trout Unlimited.

A TU general meeting, with a presentation from Wyatt and Matt about fishing the tributaries to the Great Lakes…

We got a new mattress! Since it was being delivered while B was at work, we moved our old mattress and boxspring into the living room Thursday night, so I could haul it outside by myself. It was strange sleeping on my bed, but in the living room. I loved sleeping next to my marimba.

We celebrated National Margarita day by making shrimp tacos with fresh corn tortillas and strawberry margaritas. Delicious!

Saturday brought lunker structure building with TU. Yes, they let me use the big nailer. I may have not been the most efficient, but they let me do it anyway. What a group. šŸ™‚

I think I got an albino kiwi. Is that a thing? Or maybe it is some kind of crazy hybrid…

20130224-205614.jpg
One last thing. šŸ™‚ thanks for hanging in here!
I went to a wonderful concert over at Scaraboccio Art Museum today: Faure and John Cage, sung by Susan Bender. It was wonderful- one of those concerts that reminds me how blessed I am to be able to appreciate and understand truly good music.

I’m loving my life. That’s all I can say right now.
