Happy Weekend!

TGITW. Thank God It’s The Weekend. When the alarm sounded this morning, I definitely played the ‘What Day Is It?’ game. And then, it dawned on me, Friday. FRIDAY! Even better, in exactly 8 months to the day, I will be marrying my best friend, who just happened to receive an incredible new job offer! I am so proud of him!


Dan and I celebrated his big news by ordering pizza and watching an Iowa Basketball game. We are such party animals.

ImageI am doing a 5k Shamrock Shuffle with one of my best friends tomorrow and I am so excited. I have been doing a lot more walking than running lately, so I am looking forward to seeing how it goes. Really, we are in it for the sexy kilt contest and the free drink voucher anyway. And to have fun of course.

Until then, I will be relaxing, watching movies, a little Lifetime perhaps, and looking forward to a fun filled St. Patty’s Day Weekend.

Reader Questions: What are you looking forward to this weekend? Who else is doing a Shamrock Shuffle or a race?
