Where I've been and why

I miss blogging and interacting with other bloggers and tweeting and lifting weights and cross training.  I gotta be honest, I've been working a lot.  And when I haven't been working, I've been stressing out about work.  I've barely had time to get my running workouts in.....and if I'm being honest, I haven't always gotten those accomplished either.  However, I feel that I have a pretty awesome excuse (if such an excuse existed).  

I have been working my tush off at my big girl job so I can leave this weekend for the MOST. EPIC. VACATION. EVER.

That's right folks.  I'm super excited that, this weekend, my husband and I will be busting out our passports and we'll be traveling across the border to visit our neighbor to the north.

I cannot overemphasize how excited I am to visit Vancouver, British Columbia and participate in Lululemon's 2013 Sea Wheeze Half Marathon.


As my bank account husband can attest, I'm pretty obsessed with Lululemon (it is more like an addiction)...If I could get away with wearing Lululemon to work, I would be the happiest person.  Actually, I did wear the St. Moritz cableknit sweater to work in the winter (I promise, I didn't pay full price for it).  Anyway, visiting Vancouver, the origin of Lululemon, will basically be like visiting the mother ship.  
I'm especially excited about the prospect of taking a peak inside the Lululemon Lab:  
"The lululemon lab is a conceptual design and retail space. It is a hub for innovation and functional fashion in Vancouver. The lab designs, produces and sells its own exclusive line of clothing."

Then, Husband and I will be jetting to the island of Hawaii for some relaxation (and lots of hiking) to celebrate our 5th Wedding Anniversary.  WOAH!!! As of August 16th (did I get that right?), Husband and I will have been married for 5 years (that's 1825 days!!)  

This is the part of my blog where I would LOVE to tell you about all of our plans for Hawaii, but that would require that I've read my two awesome guide books that I purchased on Amazon.  And I just haven't.  Fortunately, I have a few plane rides between now and touching down in Kona.  

Maybe we'll have a plan, maybe we''l just wing it.

.....but we'll probably have a plan..... =)

Do you have summer (or any other time of year) vacation plans?

Do you go into your vacations with a plan or do you just wing it?

Have you ever been to Vancouver or to Hawaii (the big island)?  Please hit me with any activities/sights that I must do/see!!
