Awesome Weekend (With pictures!)


Tuesday, May 22, 2012

This past weekend was so much fun, but it went by way too fast.

Saturday I ran a 5K. The weather was beautiful but really hot to run in. I still ended up with a really good time. I finished in 27:06! Another PR for me! Yay!! This event was the very first 5K I did almost exactly a year ago. Last year I ran it in 39:55. Which means in one year I've managed to shave almost 14 minutes from my 5K time! I couldn't imagine running this fast back then. I really still can't believe I can run at the pace I do now.


Here is a picture of me before the race.



After the race I went to a little BBQ at what may be the most beautiful house I've ever been in my entire life. The husband owns a construction company and built this house. I can't even begin to tell you how awesome it was. In their basement he built a full bar, like you would see out. And there was a mini movie theater that had individual seats that reclined back. It was like an episode of Cribs. Their backyard, they had a HUGE rock climbing wall and zip lines! It was crazy. I couldn't stay long though, which sucked cause I wanted to try the wall out. Hopefully I'll get to go back there.

Then on Saturday I drove down to Baltimore. I stayed at my friends house while we prepared for the shower. We put favors together and got our crafting on. While eating pizza and watching Disney movies. It was pretty awesome. lol

Sunday as the Bridal Shower. It was a really nice little shower. It was great seeing everyone and catching up with my friends.

I just really like this picture of me. lol



The four of us lived in the same dorm freshman year. We are still close friends after all this time!

After the cake was served and people started to leave I had to head back home. There was a TON of traffic. It took me close to 5 hours to get home. It would have taken longer, I saw more traffic on the parkway when I was supposed to get on. However I knew back roads and was able to avoid that all together. I was pretty cranky when I got home. That traffic pretty much sealed the deal for me. I'm going to be taking the train down for the wedding. I don't want to deal with that again.

I'm pretty tired still. I barely got any sleep this past weekend. And this weekend will be just as busy for me. I'm hoping I'll get to relax on Sunday though. Fingers crossed!
