Seriously, how do weekends go by so fast?! I had half of Thursday and Friday – Sunday off and it just wasn’t enough time!
I worked for half of the day and then started to prepare for some friends coming into town. I ran to the grocery store and then headed home to clean up our house. Don’t get me wrong, there are still boxes and stuff everywhere but I cleaned up some straglers without a home. Our friends arrived around 5:30 pm. From there we enjoyed some drinks, some dinner and quite a few rounds of P and A. If you are unfamiliar with the game, it is a drinking card game. If I tried to explain it on here, you would be so confused! So I’ll just say that we had a lot of fun and staying up until about 1 am laughing our butts off.
I got up around 7 and decided to get my butt in gear. I headed out on my run and went for about 2.5 miles. It was already getting hot out and I could tell! It was a good 2.5 miles though. After that, we headed to Target, Duluth Trading Company and the mall. We were really just killing time until Bill got off of work and the rehearsal dinner. At 6 pm we headed to the rehearsal dinner. Dinner was a cook out and was really good! Then they went through the rehearsal. It was short and sweet. We stayed there for a little bit and then some of us headed to the local Applebees to hang out a little more. After that, we headed home for everyone to get ready for the big day.
I got up around 7 am and looked at the temperature on my phone. It was already 74* and 70% humidity. I decided to get up and get out to run before the temperature really shot up. I will recap my runs on Wednesday so check back to see how the 1st “long” one went! I’m glad that I went out when I did because not long after my run it was 88* (feels like 96*) with 77% humidity. After that a couple of us that were not in the wedding headed to a local bar and grill to have lunch and a drink. Then we headed home where I had to get Mya’s stuff ready to head over to the sitter’s house. We used a webite called Rover.com to find her. I think I’m going to be doing a post on the experience just because not a lot of people have heard of this website before! After dropping off Mya, it was time to get ready and before you know it we were on our way to the wedding. Although it was hot, the clouds arrived just in time to shade the bridal party and the bride as they walked down the aisle. About an hour and a half after the ceremony, it poured rain. Which in all reality was good because it took the temperature down as well as a little bit of humidity. Even though the mosquitoes accomplished eating up my ankles, the wedding was gorgeous, the bride and groom were amazing and we all had a really great time!
Both Bill and I were exhausted after saying goodbye to our dear friends. We ended up taking a little nappie poo and then headed to the hotel where one of our cars was. After getting home, we watched some Game of Thrones (haven’t watched finale yet so don’t give any spoilers!) and Mr. Selfridge. Both are pretty good and you should get on the train if you aren’t already! 🙂
And that was our exciting weekend! Here are some photos to wrap it up!
