Last month, in early October, one of my dear friends got married at the Guy Harvey Outpost Islander Resort in Islamorada, in the Florida Keys. You’ve seen Jess in several of my running posts and if you’ve been reading for a while, you may have even heard us chatting with the Another Mother Runner ladies on their podcast last year. Jess was friends with my husband in college and she’s one of the many wonderful people that came into my life when we got together.
We’re going to play another game of catch up. I get so behind on these posts but my OCD tendencies won’t let me skip them, and I really want to write a recap of the race I did earlier this month, so today we’re playing catch up. Lots of pictures of what we did in September and October and maybe, hopefully, I won’t get behind again. I wouldn’t hold your breath though 😉
The morning after Beth & Josh’s wedding, we hopped on a plane and headed back to Jax – there was no way I was going to miss my girls first dance recital!
It’s been a little over two weeks since my last post about what we’re up to, so I figured we’re due!
Hello, hello! It’s been a few days! I haven’t really felt like sitting down to write much, so.. I didn’t. We’ve been keeping busy, as usual. I kind of think I don’t know what I’d do if we didn’t have a jam-packed calendar. Thankfully it’s mostly fun stuff!
I’ll keep this one quick and let the pictures do that talking because I have another post that I really want to write, but my OCDish brain won’t let me write it until this one is done. I haven’t written much because it was seriously go, go, go around here. I think we have a few relaxing weekends coming up, but I’m kind of scared to look at the calendar. Truthfully, I kind of enjoy the chaos. Since I work from home, I get bored sitting around on the weekends doing nothing.
Right around this time nine years ago, this is what I was doing..
Hello, hello! I didn’t fall off the face of the planet, I promise! Things at work picked up and then totally fell apart so I haven’t been on the computer much at all. For those of you who don’t know, I am a Software Engineer. The company I work for primarily does work for the Department of Defense, so it’s all contract work. We had some issues that I don’t really understand with our contract, so we all had to take a few days off until it was worked out. At first, I was kind of annoyed, I hated burning through my vacation days when I didn’t really have anything to do. It all worked out though, I got a few days to relax and decompress.. and step away from the computer!
Because we didn’t have enough crammed into the already busy Easter weekend, Adam and I decided to do the Run Rabbit Run 5K with some of our friends. I heard so many good things about the race last year, so I was eager to sign up. The course starts at the entrance to Queens Harbor Yacht & Country Club and you run along the neighborhood streets. It wasn’t at all congested and the scenery is gorgeous (especially if you’re like me and love looking at big, beautiful houses!).
A few weeks ago, Braden’s Cub Scout pack held their annual Pinewood Derby and Braden’s car, the Red and Blue Racer, won second place for the Tiger Cubs. Since he placed in his den, he was invited to race at the district level, along with the first and third place finishers from his den. That race was held on March 21st at the Orange Park Mall and included Cub Scouts from all over our county.
