Sunburned and Happy

Monday, May 19, 2014

Monday morning, why do I hate you so?  I wish that every weekend was five days and the work week was two days...that would just be perfect.  This weekend was one of my absolute favorite weekends so far!

Friday night Ross and I had a few moscow mules, headed out to hear an amazing band at our local watering hole and just enjoyed being together for the evening.

Saturday we were up bright and early to head to the Cape for the day and look at wedding venues!!  The forecast called for torrential rain all day, but it ended up being absolutely gorgeous weather.  We were able to see two venues and had an amazing lunch and dinner with my parents.  We had such a fun day!

The view of the Falmouth Marina from....our wedding venue!!!!!!

We ate dinner at our venue that night and they serve all of their drinks in mason jars!  So cute!  I forgot to ask if they do that for the weddings as well.

Sunday was my race day and it was an absolute blast!  I beat my goal time and ran a pretty solid race.  I definitely could have done better but I didn't have to stop and felt really good throughout the whole run.  There was a beer festival after (since the race was put on by Harpoon) and we had so much fun.  I did get a very intense sunburn though :(  Definitely paying today!

Ross got a picture of me running across the finish line!

Clearly we had a lot of celebrating to do after! :)

Next weekend is my birthday (the dreaded 27) so we are heading back down to the Cape to enjoy the sunshine and the beach.  I am trying my hardest to get out of work on Friday but we have two weddings this weekend and I am having a ton of trouble getting staff together!  Cross your fingers for me!
