        Ditto. I love fun “couple” pics like that. Glad you are so happy together and congrats on both of your PRs this weekend!

    Bubba Gumps was one of Connor and I’d first date places haha. Wonder what it is…Forrest Gump is a pretty amazing love story. We’re now engaged and have been together for 5 years!

    I’m so jealous of your proximity to Disney/Universal Studios! One of my goals is to run a race at Disney–I’m saving up my frequent flier miles for the trip!

    Looks like you had a jam packed day of fun. I LOVE that you’re wearing shorts at a holiday themed event. We’re displaced Floridians, currently freezing here “up north” and the idea of walking around in shorts is VERY appealing.
    Good luck at your race tomorrow.

    What a fun holiday excursion! (Though, I must say, your attire was distinctively un-winterlike! I’m pretty jealous of your warmer temperatures right now!)

    That bucket of seafood looks really good! I wish I lived near an ocean…

    I am so envious of you!! You’re boyfriend doesn’t eat as healthy as you but you still eat the same thing but a little less. When I’m with my boyfriend I can’t help but be tempted to eat all the same junk food as he is!! How do you do it?

    Looks like you had a fantastic time! I love the photos of you and Derek, particularly the one where you can only see your eyes looking up at him. You’re such a great couple : )

    Good luck to both of you with your races tomorrow ~ you’ll be fantastic as usual.

    I have never done Grinchmas or the Macy’s parade at Universal – every time I got to Universal or IoA, I’m disappointed, it seems. I am much more a Disney person! However, the Grinchmas stuff looks like a lot of fun!!

    I thought SC was warm, but we definitely cannot wear shorts here year round! Even on the coast.

    How fun! Love the cute pics of you and Derek. I looked at that old post when you reconnected – I had forgotten how long your hair was!!!

    Anyway I’m emailing you about our play date on the 26th πŸ™‚ Yay Universal!

    It looks like you had a wonderful day. I love that you and Derek were able to reconnect and start dating again! My husband and I also fall into the same category, except that we went to HS together (never dated, though) and reconnected a few years after college.
