Saturday Awesomeness

Saturday was one of those days that was just awesome all around. I woke up to go meet my peeps for a “long” run. I was hoping the hip would hold up to 6 miles. As I waited, I saw tons of small running groups. I was shocked we had so many runners here. Yes, I knew theoretically, they were there. But I hardly ever see them! It made me want to get out and make new friends. Anyway, Donnie wanted to run a small 5K that was going on that morning. I hemmed and hawed about it and he looked at me and said, “What difference does it make if you run in a race or now?” Uhh.. I had no response. So, we signed up.

I had already made the joke about wondering who I was… the crazy girl getting up before the sun to go run in 45 degree weather. Where did she come from?! Then, I became one of THOSE people who were running more miles before the race. Confident enough in their abilities to perform in the race after expending energy. I swear, sometimes I look around and wonder how I got to these places.

My hip hurt, by the way. I’m currently having a love affair with Ibuprofen, ice, and the heating pad. It all seems to be working.

Anyway, I ran and picked up donuts for the girls on my way home, rushed to shower and get dressed and head to work. I found out during work that I had placed 2nd in my age group– major sweetness!

I came home from work to find J had gone grocery shopping and made homemade chili… I was so pumped!!

THEN.. I saw that my new Lululemon crops had came in… YES!!! I love these things more than you should love a pair of workout clothes.


As I was putting away the rest of the groceries, (No he didn’t put everything away.. I’m a little anal about where things go) I noticed these bad boys…


Yes please!!! We straightened up the house and Donnie and Shannon came over to watch the Bama game… I was a little shocked by how much she screams. She and John were like two peas in a pod! I’m not gonna lie.. I was more than a nervous wreck the entire game.. it felt like last year and we were about to have our dreams crushed! With 1:34 left on the clock, John announced that he wasn’t sure if he could watch the rest… but then, TJ Yeldon came through for us with the winning touchdown, and I looked about like Tom Cruise with his couch jumping. We were all screaming and I was jumping on the couch like a crazy person.


I really love this.. because touch that thang, fo is something we always say.


I woke up Sunday and had some dominating coffee…


 Sunday was not really productive, and an extremely lazy day. It was awesome, too.

How was your weekend?

Did you watch the Bama/LSU game?

Did you race?

  1. Even though I am 110% a Gator I watched the Bama/LSU game. Such a thriller!! Glad to see the Crimson Tide pulled it off though :)

  2. Dang, the Bama game was INTENSE!! ROLL TIDE!

  3. i did watch the game!!! not my choice, but my husband is a football freak. i am too, but love the nfl better! and i can’t believe you did a 5k… at the last minute!! you are awesome!

  4. I love lulu lemon. I always thought they were overpriced but at my first 1/2 they promised everyone a pair of shorts. Long story short, they couldn’t figure out how to get everyone the right size and months later they sent all the participants a $60 gift card. By that time I figured we weren’t getting anything. Such a great company!
