I am currently home in Barrington for the week
unless I escape back to Newton for my sanity with my mother & Emmett. My patience I feel is being tested every 5 minutes with “What are you looking up?”, “Who are you texting?”, “What did you eat for breakfast? A Larabar? That’s not good for you.” I’m close to losing my sh*t it. My mother seems to forget I am 27. To make matters worse I went to the doctors office yesterday to find out I have had a strep relapse. I’m having a jolly good holiday… I just need to remember to be patient…it’s Christmas after all.
I realize this is my first post in ages. My apologies.

Earlier tonight reading through my journal/diary/whatever you may call it, I came across a list I made for myself for my own amusement two years ago. It’s been edited ever so slightly.
madsweat asked: Congratulations on your test!
Today I passed my NASM exam! I am now a certified personal trainer! I finally have the time again to reintroduce myself to Tumblr. Oh, & hello new career!
I met Randy Fenoli this past Saturday when Brooke said yes to the dress at Kleinfeld’s! I’d love to share some of the photographs I took but they’re all of Brooke in the dress which can’t be revealed until 11/11/11! It was such an amazing experience being able to see the store in person & recognize the consultants from TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress! Brooke’s consultant was Diane & we were seated on the main couch where they film the show! Diane made it easy for us & found the dress on the first try! The dress is exactly how I envisioned Brooke to look on her wedding day - classic & timeless. She tried on a total of four dresses but nothing topped our reaction to Brooke in the first gown.
