Whirl Wind

Terms like "whirl wind weekend" were invented for weekends like last weekend, well for that and teaching lessons on alliteration. This weekend was filled with 5k's, crawfish and bloggers... 2/3 of my favorite things... i'll let you decided which one is the non-favorite in that list :)

Friday: 
I... 
A. Watching America be awesome
B. Went to be at 10:00. 
the end. 

Saturday: 
We, and when I say we I mean everyone but me, participated in the Run for Hope 5K, a great 5K raising money for the foster care system in our county. I however did not run, I have a mental block on running long distances that stems from an experience with the Pacer in the third grade. I sure did cheer loud as my friends crossed the finish line though!! Confession I may have cheered a little louder when the neon flash pictured below crossed the finish line! 

Saturday evening we held our anual crawfish boil, a spring time tradition that is quickly becoming one of my favorites! We had 20ish people come over to enjoy our favorite Louisiana deliciousness. We laughed, we ate, we remembered what it was like to drink beer out of a keg. As the night wore on shenanigans ensued that could only have been blamed on the crawfish ;) 

 (That is Clemons... Reese's roommate... he's taken ladies aren't you sad?) 

My regards the the chef! 
  





It was a beautiful way to spend a perfect spring time day! 


Sunday: 
Sunday I met up with my girl Whitney to head into Houston and meet up with some of my (new and old) favorite blogger ladies! Of course we had a FAB time! Whit and I were talking on the way home about how lucky we are the have (blogger) friends that are so different, but have a very unique common blogging thread! Yay! Lucky us, we are so blessed!! 

SO blessed to get to have a friend like Darby

A. I look tall, thank you new wedges.
B. I LOVE ME SOME WHITNEY 


Linking up the above shenanigans with Miss Sammi!

Looks like an incredible weekend. Running 5Ks (or you know, watching them, which is what I do more often) always makes me feel super productive.

since I can NEVER seem to make one of these meetups (thanks, mom!) I decided that you, me and Whitney are going to have one of our own.

Whitney said...

New reader! Your reference to a third grade running incident made me laugh. A 'friend' told me I ran like a chicken in 2nd grade and I've been paranoid about the way I run since! haha!

Darby Hawley said...
