The following week, Kyle’s parents came to town (more on that later!) and I pretended to be a news anchor for a spoof video my company put together….

Then I saw this really good deal on peanut butter (this is something blogger Lauren circa 2010 would care about so I’m including it)….

Meanwhile, Kyle and I kept up our weekly date nights with stuff like spicy Indian food at Darbar and a night at the theatre (watching a play put on by two of my high school friends (so talented!!))

And then…. IT HAPPENED.

Don’t freak out. Nicole and I didn’t decide to move to Canada or anything….

I’m talking about Pulse 2014, one of the defining moments for the Customer Success Industry.

Sorry, I’ll stop being dramatic.

Our company’s annual conference was a big success this year, and I couldn’t be more proud of the team I’m a part of, the company, and everyone else who helped make it so amazing….

1 day later I was on a plane to LAX for Nicole’s graduation weekend (more on that later). Spoiler alert: it was awesome and Nicole is my hero.

Subsequently, Kyle and I had two nearly back-to-back dates in SF. One at the fancy-ish Sutro’s (Cliff House) during Dine About Town and the other at Mission Bowling for “Booze, Brunch, and Bowling” a la howaboutwe….

If you can’t tell by now, one of my most favorite extracurricular activities is enjoying every last second of my weekends. Want to know what’s next for my birthday weekend in 5 days?

NEW YORK CITY!!!

It’s been a while but if you made it this far, thank you for reading :) I’ll be back soon! I think I found my mojo….
