Friday is my 2nd Favorite F word! The 1st one is Food!

Happy Friday internet friends! Can you believe it's May 1st?! Because I personally cannot. And this still makes me pretty happy......
                                         

Last night we went to A Taste of Albany that was held at the New York State Museum.  The event is a "culinary showcase of Capital Region restaurants and chefs, celebrating with entertainment, live and silent auctions and great views from the NYS Museum Terrace Gallery.   There was an extensive selection of tastes from more than 30 Capital Region restaurants.


There were lots of fun things going on besides just food and wine like music by The Grand Central Station Trio, carousel rides, complimentary caricatures, photo booth, and more.

Proceeds from A Taste of Albany benefit Interfaith Partnership for the Homeless (IPH), an Albany-based agency with more than 30 years of service addressing the needs of the homeless and low-income community. It's the 10th year of the event, but my 1st time going.  Stack's (my Fiance's coffee shop) was providing coffee for the event so we invited our friends to met up with us there!  The drinks and food were all fantastic!! The music was great and we had a blast!
                                     


Fiance of the year award goes to my man who bid on this Kate Spade bag for me and won :)



I have another jam packed, fun-filled weekend away from home.  One of my best friends is getting married a month after me and tomorrow is her shower!  She lives about an hour away and I hardly ever see her anymore now that she doesn't live around the corner like she used too!  I'm heading there wicked early so I can meet up with the other bridesmaids to setup!  I love this little peanut!  I am so happy for her!


Fiance is heading to Boston tomorrow with his groomsmen for his bachelor party.  I plan to sit on our couch, cuddle the pups and watch reruns of my favorite shows all night. #Winning. 

My obsession and love for this show runs deep. Erin + Gossip girl 4 LIFE


And because I know you're all interested, here are few things I'm loving pretty hard!



- I basically need this to live a happy life.  In every color.  Damn you Lululemon!!!  It looks like the most comfy thing EVER.


- Tart cherry juice.  Not anything new to me, but you should probably incorporate this little gem into your life, daily.  I stock up on it at Trader Joe's mostly and have a bottle or glass after a hard workout or a long run. Click the link to learn all about it's amazing qualities! 


-A week from today I'm running leg 10 of Ragnar Cape Cod!  My first run is 12.8 'very difficult', hilly miles.  Bring on the pain train just 9 days post marathon. Lots of stretching and foam rolling will be happening.  I've done one Ragnar Relay before and it was a freaking BLAST.  200+ miles, 30+ hours in a van with 5 other people, running #allthemiles.  If you haven't done one, you are missing out, and you should immediately sign up. Right now. Team "Docks to Dacks?! I thought it was Drinks and Snacks!" is going to kill it!! We'll also be running Ragnar ADK in the fall! BOOM! 

-These dresses by Lauren Conrad.  I have bought 4 of them.  They just fit perfect and are wicked cute!!  I wore one to my shower and to the event last night and got so many compliments!! Side note: I had a weird obsession with all her shows and I (am sorry to say I)  have watched every season and every episode of: Laguna Beach, The Hills & The City.  Sometimes I still do.  I've also read her books.  They are not well written.  And now I'm wearing her clothes.  No shame. 



-This notebook.  I bought it for fiance for Christmas or his birthday last year and he has yet to use them!  I'm a note taker and list maker so I commandeered them for myself.  



Hope everyone has an amazing day and weekend!

Does anyone have any fun plans?

Anyone running long or racing?

Have you ever done a Ragnar Relay?


Happy Running :)
