Hiiiiiii! What a fantastic weekend! And…y’all, its MAY!!!! How is that even possible! May is one of my favorite months though, so I welcome it with open arms! May, in my eyes, is kicking off Summer. And, this Summer, I have SO many fun things, weddings and trips planned. I just can’t wait! This weekend was a full one, check out my review below!
So in review, I had a crazy, FUN, & busy weekend! Weekends really do go by so fast, especially when they are jammed. Monday mornings sure do come around quickly! Friday night was spent at home organizing things for the next day. Nothing too crazy.
Saturday was one of my best friends Bridal Shower in Ohio. So lots of planning and fun was had by all! It was a wine theme…and I had a lot of fun creating the decorations and drinking all the wine. The shower took place about two hours away. So I drove up early on Saturday and had to come home that same night. I LOVE seeing my friends from college. We always pick up right where we left off, like we never missed a beat. It was a fabulous shower! Now…onto planning the Bachelorette weekend, WOOO!
After spending time with my best gal pals, I came home and relaxed a bit before passing out! Only to wake up early on Sunday for the Pittsburgh Marathon!!! I ran in the Marathon Relay! I was running the last leg which was 4.2 miles. Guys, I had a BLAST!!!!! It was seriously SO much fun. I know its not the half or the full….but it was a real challenge for me, and I DID IT! I have been training a bit, here and there, and I really was proud of myself for surviving! I am not a runner, it is a struggle for me. I am really striving to be more of a runner/jogger, I think its more mental for me. But the marathon crowd was so encouraging, energetic, and motivating…I just kept on pushing through! I can’t get over the crowds, seriously, the best! If you follow me on SNAPCHAT (jhiggs787) you had to see some of the crowds, bands and crazy folks who were cheering us on! So CONGRATS to all the people who ran in the full marathon, half, and relay!!!!!! I am definitely planning on doing it again next year, who knows, maybe ill do the half! say whaaaaaaaat?!?!
After the race, Nick and I went to Pipers Pub! I had a large Bloody Mary 🙂 and some yummy food! The rest of the afternoon/evening was spent relaxing and taking it easy! All in all it was such an awesome weekend. My highlight…seeing my friends from college and crossing that finish line! 🙂
What was the highlight of your weekend?!
