Chapel Hill-Bound!

You heard me right, folks. I am no longer in Charleston, SC. Ryan and I got back late Tuesday PM, picked up the Happster and immediately zonked out at home.

These past two days I’ve been spending my time working, laundering, brushing the Happster’s teeth (she loved it!) and squeezing in a few errands. Oh, and I fit in a 10-mile long run somewhere in there, too. Gotta keep up with that marathon training!

Now? Ah yes, now I am in Chapel Hill.

I am currently attending a lovely little orientation with my fellow Masters of Public Health- Public Health Leadership Program cohortians. Talk about a mouthful. From here on out, let’s agree to call it MPH-PHLP. Yes, much better.

I can’t believe this day is finally here… that I’m actually taking the next step towards my dream. In fact, I pinched myself when I woke up this morning, just to make sure this was really happening. All I can say is… I feel truly blessed.



I’ll be here through Sunday, much to Happy’s chagrin. She’s quite POed that I up and left after only spending a whooping two days at home. No worries, though, as she’ll be having lots of bonding time with Ryan. Pretty sure this is the first time ever it’ll be just him and Happs. This could be interesting…

Anywho, I promise to give y’all an update on our Charleston trip in the near-ish future. Seriously, you’ll want to check out where we stayed: let’s just say we pretty much had an old, historic home in the downtown area to ourselves for 70bucks a night. Cannot beat that!

And if you’re dying to hear more from me in the meantime, hop on over to Meg’s blog — she’s featured me today on her blog for her “Feature Friday” series! Whaaat a dollface for choosing lil ‘ole me Smile

Do you ever have back-to-back (to- back) trips? Do you ever get burned out from traveling? Are you heading to HLS next Friday? Yep, that’s right… once I get back from Chapel Hill, I work three days and then I’m off to Philadelphia for HLS!
