Have you recovered from your turkey coma? I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Bre hosted an amazing dinner and it was a great day spent with great friends. Add that to the surprise birthday lunch my girlfriends threw for me this week, and I’m certainly feeling the love! I have lots to be thankful for!
A few days ago I returned from an amazing week in Hong Kong. I can honestly say it’s like no other place I’ve ever visited. The intensity and energy from all of the people is unreal, and the options for entertainment, culture, food, and shopping are limitless! I was honestly overwhelmed by it all, especially now that I’m used to island living. I definitely wasn’t in Barbados anymore!
Mmmmm…are you getting ready for Thanksgiving? Turkey, stuffing, pie, I’m so excited!!! We are lucky enough to have friends who have no Thanksgiving day plans (non of them are American – lol!), so my husband and I easily convince them to join us in our little family celebration.
I can’t believe it’s already been two and a half weeks since the NYC marathon. It’s still somewhat surreal that it’s over. This was my second marathon, and I’ve admitted a few times now that I was pretty nervous about it. Since I’m a more experienced runner than when I ran my first marathon four years ago, I really wanted to do better this time around.
Well, I beat my time from before, so yay!
I’m in Hong Kong!!! I landed yesterday and to say that I’m jet lagged is a complete understatement. Despite the fact that my body has absolutely no idea what time it is, I’m super excited to explore the city. Tomorrow I’m heading over to Lantau Island to see the Giant Buddha and on Sunday I’ll be in Macau for the day. I can’t wait to share my pictures with you!
Today I leave for Hong Kong – whoop whoop! While I’m dreading the ridiculously long travel to get there (it takes two days!), I’m incredibly excited to explore the city, celebrate my birthday in style, and take a day to visit Macau. I’ve spent the past week packing and re-packing and I think I’ve narrowed down my wardrobe to the essentials…plus a bit more. I’m not a light packer, so the struggle is real.
With so much travel recently, I’ve realized that I tend to pack the same items over and over again. These are the things I’m loving right now that help me get through the long flights and hotel nights. Read More…
Having a brief holiday on the East Coast during my favorite season has been wonderful. The weather has been perfect for all our NYC and DC activities, including trick-or-treating, running the marathon, shopping, visiting parks and museums, and taking leisurely strolls. We couldn’t have asked for a better week!
We’re thrilled to be celebrating our second blogiversary here at Bump & Run! What an amazing year we’ve had! We’ve done a bit of traveling, our golf games have improved ever so slightly, one of us had a baby, the other fostered a dog, and we’ve been working crazy hard on starting a new clothing line.
