Things That Happened in January

A recap!

Paul and I got engaged! I actually wrote a whole post about this, never published it, and now it feels too late. Here is the CliffsNotes™ version:

Who: Me and Paul
What: Got engaged
Where: Cove Beach in Cape May, New Jersey
When: Friday, January 10, after work
Why: Because we love each other
How: He surprised me with a ring, and then we spent the weekend at Congress Hall

I went on The Ski Trip to Vermont. Paul finally talked me into joining in the trip’s fourth year. A lot of things went wrong–there wasn’t much snow (for Vermont), there weren’t a lot of degrees (-8 when we arrived in Killington to ski, 3 when we left), the trail I really wanted to ski was closed–but I didn’t seriously hurt myself. (I did get a nasty bruise in a place that would have hurt a lot more if I were a dude. But, no broken bones or torn ligaments. Win!)


I got a stomach bug. One of the things that went wrong in Vermont is that half the people there got sick at some point during or shortly after the trip. One of those people was me. I had a three-mile running week, thanks to the skiing and the sickness. Womp.

    That is my all-time favorite moment from Parks & Recreation. I quote it far too often.

    Congratulations on the engagement!

      Thanks, Ali!

      I sent the clip to a non-Parks-and-Rec watching friend who came down with the same bug I had. She replied, “I can’t stop laughing. It’s going to make me poop again.” Rob Lowe’s career highlight!

  2. Congratulations on the engagement!

  3. Engagements are so 2011.
