I had a pretty good weekend. After everything that happened this past week I just wanted to rest and spend time with my family. That’s just what we did on Friday. It was my nephew Aidan’s 2nd birthday so we went to my mom’s house to celebrate. I know my nephews love me but they don’t like to hang around me too much. I don’t really know what it is. Maybe that’s just the way boys are. I think I’m just used to my girls always wanting hugs and kisses constantly.
I think this was the only time he let me carry him that day. And yes, it was forced. He’s just too cute.
I also got a chance to hang out with my sisters. We all have very busy lives and don’t get to spend as much time all together as we’d like. We can spend hours together laughing and not even realize where the time has gone.
On Saturday morning, I went to a boot camp class at my gym for the 2nd week in a row. I thought last week was tough. But this week’s class literally kicked my butt. It was a squat-filled workout. I woke up Sunday morning so sore but I also love that feeling. I know I really pushed myself. This picture is from after last week’s class. Yes, I was tired.
After my boot-camp class I went to get a haircut. I was trying to grow out my hair, but it wasn’t working out for me. With my active lifestyle, I like being able to style my hair quick and still look presentable. This short style lets me do that. I think it also fits me well. You can’t really tell but it is vary tapered from the back and that’s what make it easy to style. (It was a no-makeup kind of day)
The rest of the weekend I spent getting nervous about the Boston Strong El Paso run that is happening tonight! I didn’t expect so many people to be excited as I am about it. There are over 90 El Pasoans so far that have RSVP’d. That makes me so happy and a little scared because I know I’m going to have to say a few words before we start. I know not everyone is going to be able to make it, but honestly I only expected about 30 RSVP’s.
I know it is going to be a lot of fun doing what we love; running and feeling the community support for Boston. I’m so excited to meet twitter, Facebook and Instagram friends that I’ve never had the chance to meet in person. I can’t wait to tell you all about it!
