Welp, the weekend sure did not go as I had planned, but I did have fun (and got to see my nephew!!).
|"And THIS is a CARROT!"|
The intent was to do my long run Saturday morning with the running group I'm a part of (but haven't really run with). I was pretty excited to use my new gear (post to come!) and set out all of my clothes to run and all that jazz.
The thing is...I had the busiest week and had put off doing a zillion things that I was planning on doing Friday. So of course Friday was equally busy.
I went to the extra Chemistry class basically just to check my test score since my normal class wouldn't meet until the week after spring break. Well, my score did improve from last time, but the grading on those tests is a sham.
Then I had dinner on campus (Subway...duh!) while I worked on the Chemistry homework. I did NOT want to be working on it over break. The time flew by and I barely finished in time for my laptops batteries to wear out.
Then it was off to buy presents for my sister's birthday and for my friend Rachael's wedding shower.
Does it make me selfish that while I was looking for presents that I ended up buying stuff for myself?
I cannot help myself around kitchen supplies!

Dave was a sweetheart and let me finish up my Fitness Friday post, which I was determined to finish because I told Miss Katie at Talk Less Say More I would link-up! I HATE letting people down!
Well, speaking of that...I ended up trying to figure out where the running group was meeting at midnight before the run. (Smart, Amanda.) After google-mapping for about 30 minutes (and stressing my already exhausted self out), I finally posted on the running Facebook page that I would not be making it.
Lack of sleep is NOT pretty on me. I ended up a crying mess because it was 12:30am and I needed to fold all of this laundry and the apartment was a mess and I still had to pack and prepare to be gone a full week...and my hysterics ended up waking Dave who had passed out about an hour previous.
I didn't end up running with the group, nor on my own. I didn't even do much more in the morning than have breakfast or pack up the presents. BUT Dave and I did snuggle and watch 30 Rock on Netflix.
We also got to spend a glorious afternoon with my family to celebrate my sister's birthday.
That's probably enough cuteness for one day right?
I also made some money babysitting Saturday evening then drove the hour back to my apartment to finish everything that needed to get done....staying up until 3am and missing an opportunity to run before heading back to my hometown for a wedding shower.
It's funny because although things weren't going as planned, I still had so much fun this weekend!
The wedding shower was a combined one (guys and gals) so it was different than I am used to, but it was great seeing our friends and participating in the games. We ended up learning A LOT about the couple. The first thing they did was play "The Almost Newlyweds" which was based off of an old television game show where the couple answers questions about each other beforehand and then each person has to guess what the others response would be to each question.
Also the hosts were awesome and kept the party super entertaining. Did I mention this took place on St. Patty's day?
Happy Spring break to whoever that applies to! :)

Have you ever been to a combined wedding shower?
Do your days (or weeks) ever go completely differently from how you planned?
