On the go all weekend.

Gabe and I went to the Mariners vs. Detroit Lions baseball game on Friday night and had a great time.  This was the only game all season where we weren't pulling for the home team since Gabe is a hardcore Tigers fan.  He was born in Detroit, and I learned real quick when we were dating that I was going to be a well rounded Michigan sports fan.  It was suppose to be freezing, so I prepared for the cold and windy weather with my ski jacket and gloves.  By the end of the night, it turned out to be perfect baseball weather and was quite comfortable with just my jacket.  We have season tickets with unbelievable seats on the eight row right by third base -- what a great way to start out the season where I couldn't be happier for either team winning! 

I volunteered at the American Diabetes Association Expo majority of the day on Saturday, and here is a picture of our display with my Pfizer colleagues.  This is a side of my industry that I don't get to interact with enough because there are so many obstacles and blocks regarding compliance and conversing with consumers.  So, we constantly were telling everyone to "contact their doctor" regarding the drug they were inquiring about so we wouldn't be liable for giving advice, etc.  It was so encouraging to hear the success stories where patients smoked at least a pack of cigarettes a day and were able to quit smoking on Chantix (which is for smoking cessation).  I did have one gentlemen tell me that our company is moving in the wrong direction by getting people to stop smoking .... hmm not sure we were on the same page regarding moving towards a healthier world with an abundance of resources!!

Saturday night we met one of Gabe's best friends from Dallas who was visiting Seattle with his girlfriend, Stephanie.  We had dinner downtown at Icon Grill and enjoyed a night of playing remember when.  I think it might be a good thing that I didn't know Gabe in college, ha - not really, because I so often wish we met before we did so all the links would fit together in his "past life" before me :)    

Anyways, thanks for letting us spend the evening with you and look forward to seeing ya'll soon.  Hey, maybe we will meet you in Dubai.  (Wink, wink, Gabe that was for you to especially read!)

Gabe and Brett

I drove to and from downtown multiple times a day this past week and weekend, and it is now all coming together and making much more sense.  My goal is to be able to navigate through Seattle without my nifty Garmin navigator, also known as Carmen.  My Paw Paw got her for me when I first moved to Seattle, and it has been an absolute lifesaver.  Now, she comes in handy again with my new offices.  The more I work in the city, the more I want to live closer to the city than where currently reside.  I have a lot of convincing to do with Gabe, but we just re-signed a lease at our apartment so I have a little time.

Hope everyone has a wonderful start to the week.  It is going to be 70 degrees tomorrow, which is almost sweltering to us.  I may get to pull out the sunglasses .....
