It's been a lovely Saturday here at our house. Morning started out with my big 9 mile run, and it felt great!! Last week's knee pain is history, and I felt really good and strong, and finished with a great time of 91:36!!! Hooray!! Next Saturday is up to 10 miles, which is going to be a BIG milestone - very excited about it. I had a bridal shower later in the morning, and it was a brunch (which worked out well since I was FAMISHED after running). It made me feel VERY old though - it's been so long since I've been to a shower other than a BABY shower. Our 10 year anniversary is approaching this summer, and I definitely felt like an old married lady a wee bit!!!
Tonight, Miss America was on and it was fabulous!! I won't spoil it by saying who won (in case any of you DVR'd it), but it was a fun evening. My sister Kelli and I always watch it together - and have since we were kids (I know, there's so many reasons why beauty pageants are the worst things EVER, but we LOVE them!) So since we live states apart, we call each other on the commercial breaks to compare notes and chat about it - it's hilarious!!! This year, they did a 4-week reality show leading up to the competition and we got the biggest kick out of it. What entertainment for the evening.
The other big news of the weekend is that I found out that I was selected to be a guest blogger/commenter for the State of the Union address on Monday!! Yikes - talk about a lot of pressure!!! I was selected by our newspaper, and my comments will appear on the blog and may be published in the paper!! Talk about a lot of responsibility!!! What a weekend so far!
