Sunday Sampler ...

The first half of Memorial Day weekend has been rather exciting around here. We kicked the weekend off on Friday with a day at Busch Gardens. It was pretty much the perfect day to go. The temperature was ideal and the crowds were small. We even ran into KT, Em and their boys while we were there. Here are a few of my favorite pictures from the day. (Note the girls wearing their Laken and Lila skirts I won over at Running Diva Mom)


Yesterday was the Autism 5k. Like I mentioned in my recap, I ran 24:08, a 1:08 PR. But even better than that, I found out yesterday afternoon that I finished second in my age group and was the 11th female overall. By far my best finish ever. I'm basically feeling pretty awesome right now.

Adding to that awesomeness is the fact that after the 5K yesterday, I booked a plane ticket to Seattle in September for a race/baby shower/bloggy meetup with Tall Mom, Zoe, Jill and Kerrie. I am beyond excited, not only is Washington one of the places I have always wanted to visit, but I FINALLY get to meet some of my favorite West Coast bloggers. CAN'T WAIT!

And on a completely random note, I think I found my new favorite socks. I wore them this morning on a hellishly hot eight miler with G. It's kind of hard to tell, but they are baby blue and lime. Aren't they cute?

The girls look completely adorable in their L&L skirts. Love that you posted this. That sure didn't take long for her to get them shipped to you.

Hope you enjoy the rest of your long weekend together!!

Congrats on the PR!!!! That is awesome :) The skirts are adorable. My girls love theirs. L&L has great stuff.

That's great that you are coming to Seattle. I live south of there and plan on meeting some bloggy buddies in June. I can't wait.

Great socks!!! I've always had a sock thing but never crossed over to fun running ones until recently.

A dumb question: When you get the socks, do they come with an exact match (in color) or do you buy two pair and switch them?

Kiddos look great. Looks like you all had a great day!

Cute skirts!

Your finish keeps getting better! Years ago, before the net, I use to read about my finishes weeks after they happened; it was always such a pick-me-up when I didn't expect to place. Keep up with the good cheer!
