Happenings

Happy Monday peeps!  I hope everyone had a great weekend.  It was a busy, kid-free, few days in our house!

I drove 5 hours round-trip on Friday to get Baby Girl to her GiGi and Poppy's house so she could play with her cousins.  Friday night, we went to the Family Circle Cup with some friends.


On Saturday morning, I woke up at the butt-crack of dawn to get to the Cooper River Bridge Run with the other 40,000+ participants.  We got to Coleman Blvd at 6:45 and our group didn't get to the start line until 9:15.  I guess that's the price you pay for signing up as a "walker."  I literally only ran about 4 times to train for this 10K.  I've probably only run a total of 8 times in my entire life.  My results are nothing to write home about, but I'm pretty proud of them.  We ran a little over half of it, running for 5-10 minutes at a time with walking breaks in between.  We finished in under an hour and a half and placed right in the middle of the pack.  Not too shabby considering I thought we would walk the whole way and finish in 2 hours or more.

...After

We celebrated the completion of the race with the most amazing pimento cheese burger and cadillac margarita ever at Poe's.  Yum.  Food never tasted so good!


On Sunday we got to sleep in, eat Bojangles for breakfast, and take a post ham biscuit and seasoned fries nap.   We went to a charity event in the afternoon and then made the 5 hour round trip again to pick up Baby Girl.

We rushed home to see the season premiere of "Game Of Thrones".   Is anyone else watching?  I can't wait for the big, royal wedding!  


If you're a "Southern Charm" fan, be sure to tune in tonight and stay up for "Watch What Happens Live".  A little birdy told me that there's going to be a GINORMOUS announcement!  Can anyone guess what it is?  I can't wait!!!


p.s.  Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice?  Because we have a house showing in 25 minutes.  I better get off of this computer and get Baby Girl up so we can scoot.  Wish us luck!

  7. Sad I didn't see you at the race! I walked it the whole way. I don't run unless someone is chasing after me. You made great time! We finished in 1 hr and 45 min. Now I'm going to google what the big announcement was on WWHL because I missed it!
