If we're friends on Facebook, sorry, you've likely already seen this, but here is a little bit about our stance in regards to this [to us] significant day:
Now, about that weekend. Sorry to report that is flew by after all. Bummerific .But it was good.
We actually treated this Friday night like any typical evening. We needed to be up early in the morning and wanted to avoid missing out on sleep. Because we're forty.
We woke up at the ripe ol' hour of 6:00 AM (perfect for a Saturday) but it was for a great reason. We headed to our favorite city, Tempe, for the Pat Tillman Race. It's a wonderful cause that we're more than happy to contribute to. Check out their website if you're interested in hearing more. It's a 4.2 mile race, and you know, because we're super-spectacular go-getters, we trained all of two times for this race. This ended up working out, because the friend we were running with had the stomach flu this week, and her brother, also joining us, has a training routine strikingly similar to ours. So, we showed up Saturday morning ready for a 4.2 mile walk, but I guess our friend was feeling better, because we ended up doing a mixed jog/walk. Because we're winners. And let-me-tell-you, we were the best walk/runners you ever did see. Ever.
Post-race, we had some lunch, watched Limitless (really interesting movie), and got ready for a wedding! My best friend Jessica's brother (got that?) got married this past Saturday! Jess and I have been friends since the third grade and I'm sure my regular readers can recognize the name, as she's been mentioned quite a bit on LLF. But being that we've been friends so long, I'm practically a member of the family, and when hubband came alone, they naturally welcomed him in as well. They're a wonderful, close-knit group, so we were excited to share in the celebration of another sibling getting married!
And I straightened my hair!
We woke up early (uhhh-gan) to serve and worship at church, and the set list this morning was BEAUTIFUL. It was a blessed morning of singing, community, and God's great love. We are absolutely LOVING our new campus. Post church included swimming with the best again (told you she's around a lot!) because it was 103 in Arizona this weekend. And finally some relaxin and laundry. Boo laundry. The end.
How was your weekend?
