Sorry about my very delayed post…I meant to type this up Sunday but honestly? I’m still recovering! Let’s just say it was a very long (but felt short), but fun weekend!!
First of all, THANK YOU so much everyone for all your money saving techniques and ideas! I received some great comments and emails from you guys with some amazing tips and I will probably utilize almost every one of them, so THANK YOU! I’ll tell you all more about it later this week once I have more details…until then you’ll have to wait in suspense!!
Friday morning I got up bright and early and went out for a 5-mile run. We were busy all weekend and I couldn’t get my long run in until Monday, so I knew I had to do at least 5 miles. I had to be home by 6:45 to get ready for work though and by the time I got up, let Baylee out, and was out the door, I only had time for 5 miles….but I have to remind myself, that’s more than 90% of people run in their lifetime so I’m doing good :) lol Friday night a friend came over to make JELLO SHOTS for our Saturday festivities :)
Blue and Yellow for the Brewers :)
We proceeded to head to bed at 9:30 on a Friday so we could get plenty of rest for the BIG DAY! Saturday morning we left around 7:15 to go to breakfast with 4 other friends. We were doing a Brewers bus trip for a surprise 30th birthday party for one of the guys, and we told him we were doing breakfast and golfing. At breakfast we surprised him and told him about the trip!!! He was SO surprised and SO excited. Milwaukee is about a 3-hour drive for us so riding on a bus in style is SO much better….plus, then you don’t have the 3-hour drive home and you can drink ;) I may have taken that to heart… lol
I may have been a total picture whore that day….maybe….
And then we arrived at Miller Park and did about 3 hours of tailgating! It was a GORGEOUS day, about 78* and SUNNY!
Me with the Birthday Boy!! (for those of you that met my friend Renee in Boston, this is her awesome husband, Justin!!)
I loved one of our friend’s Brewer Shirts so I made him trade ;)
On the way to the game we found a skidsteer that we had some fun with :) Unfortunately the pics aren’t turning out :(
And then it was time for the game with more shenanigans :)
I love how Renee and I are posing for a pic and Justin’s totally stealing my margarita!! lol
There are MANY, man y more pics but not blog appropriate ;) so you’ll have to check out my Facebook pics!! LOL
We got back around 11:30 pm so it was a LONG but FUN day!!!! Honestly? One of the funnest Brewer games ever :) We decided we are going to make it an annual trip! We had to head to bed though because the next morning, we had to hit the road again to visit our cousin and Godson!
Isn’t he the cutest thing? (oh yeah, Thomas is cute too!!! ;) )
I even got to play mommy and take him for a walk in the stroller ;) He’s blonde like me so I totally could have stole him and no one would have questioned it!
They have a boxer too so we took Baylee for a puppy play date ;)
We got back around 9 or so and proceeded to head to bed almost right away..I was still so tuckered out from Saturday’s party!
Monday morning I headed out for my weekly long run. I’m not going to lie. It sucked. Bad. I think there were a number of reasons why:
- It was a Monday so my brain/schedule were out of whack because I always do my long runs on Saturday
- I didn’t have coffee like usual
- I had to run alone – I’m now spoiled with my running buddy, Jennifer!!
- I didn’t want to be running for 2 hours on a HOLIDAY/day off
- It was freaking hot outside
- I was STILL tired from Saturday
Excuses? maybe…but it sucked. I did 9 miles but walked almost half of it! With my Half Marathon only 2 weeks away, that made me a little nervous but whatever. I’m sure I’ll do fine, I just know I won’t beat my time from my Half in May. Oh well. Jennifer and I are doing it together so it’ll be a blast no matter what!! :)
The rest of the day Monday we did absolutely nothing! Okay, I took a 3-hour nap in a lawn chair outside (in the shade) and tried reading some of my book (The Time Traveler’s Wife!!) but other than that, nothing. And get this, I’m STILL tired today! Wow, I’m not 20 anymore, haha!!!
Alright, on that note, I need to hit the sheets….we just got a new mattress and it is HEAVENLY so luckily I have that to look forward to. It was much needed – our old mattress just wasn’t doing it for me!
