8 weeks ago…. I just stopped blogging for no good reason at all.
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!!))
Speaking of high school friends, the next chronological thing in my iPhone Camera App is this lovely photo of two high school besties (Nat and Sarah) after we had dinner at Nat’s house (thank you Cin!)
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.
The following weekend (Memorial Day) I went to Austin for Katie’s bachelorette party. (Also, more on that later!!!)
Next up? Hair color, random San Jose reunion with college buddies, and a trip with my mom and David to San Diego for the Rock n Roll Half Marathon (totally want to do a full recap on that trip – eep! Lots to catch up on!)
That brings us to the beginning of June, aka my favorite month of the year :)
We exhibited at Zuora’s conference and then enjoyed a small team dinner in the Mission….
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….
Between those two fabulous dates, I enjoyed a long hike with Nicole after work AND celebrated summer with all of Gainsight at our first Field Day event!
(We are almost up to date, folks!)
BBQ oysters (those suckers are hard to open, even with a screwdriver) at Kit/Adrienne’s BBQ two weeks ago….
Sister lunch date (soooo happy she’s back home, for good!)
Happy hour on Friday with Serra, Nicole, and my mom….
A kickass wedding in Hollister this past Saturday (congrats Darren and Kitra!)
And then a lovely Sunday BBQ to celebrate Father’s Day….
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….
