The Weekend

This one was a busy one. Friday night Dean, Cindy & I ate at Caliente & then Cindy & I went to the last LSU home gymnastics meet of the season. I've never been before but I've been wanting to go. Cindy has a friend with season tickets that couldn't go so we were able to use her tickets. We had really good seats. We picked a great night to go. Over 13,000 people were there. It was a record crowd. LSU won with a record score, it was Senior night & we got to see 3 perfect 10's! 2 on the vault & 1 on floor exercise.

This is Llominicia Hall. She's a senior & puts on a show with her floor exercise.
This wasn't her first 10 with this routine. So fun!  Something I noticed was that these aren't the little gymnasts that I expected. These girls have serious muscles. 

Saturday morning was the Komen Race for the Cure. Lydia got a team together for Logan's Pre K Teacher last year. She's going through chemo now. She had a team of 25 & they raised $1200.  It was FREEZING Saturday morning but it was fun.  

These two. No words I swear.

Logan & Lucy Ann love each other. They held hands the entire time. It's the cutest thing ever.

Thank goodness for the sun or we would've frozen to death. Lydia & I walked with the team. There were so many people there was no way we could've ran. This year there was a different option & you could pay more & get a timing chip & participate in the timed race but they limited the time to 30 minutes. Scott did that option because Mr. Competitive isn't going to just run when there's an actual race to be ran. He was first in his age group & 10th overall. 

More hand holding.

Then when you said let's take a picture you got this

Is that not the cutest thing ever???

Allie came too. Don't we look cold?

More hand holding.
At one point Logan had a girl on each side holding hands with him. These kids kill me & they're all so adorable!

After the race I went to my parents to visit, then to Mass & then to meet Allison for dinner at Bistro Byronz. Fun night but I ate entirely too much. Dean went to Mississippi to help a friend bring a refrigerator to their camp so I got in all my girl time while he was gone.

Sunday I had a lazy morning before going to meet Vicki for lunch at the Velvet Cactus. The shrimp tacos were amazing but I wasn't a fan of the beans at all. 

Since the Komen walk was sooooo slow - I'm talking 1:09 to walk 3.1 miles slow & with the food that I'd eaten, I knew I needed to run so off I went when I got home from lunch. 

I got in 5 miles & then I went to lakes to walk/run/mostly walk some more. Allie is training for her first half marathon & she's recovering from an Achilles injury so we were taking it slow. 

But we got in another 4 miles so I was excited about that. Of course going home & eating Girl Scout cookies kinda messed it all up. Oh well. I'll get back at it tomorrow.

Tonight is the first night of a Lenten Mission at Church that I'm excited about. A young Priest in our Diocese is leading. He's training for the Boston Marathon & the mission has a running theme. Should be fun. 

How was y'all's weekend?
