Weekend Festivities

Can it truly be Monday already?  What a whirlwind of a weekend!

Friday evening was consumed with preparing for our Girls on the Run 5k!  After a late night and a very early wake-up call on Saturday we were ready to go!  Approximately 1000 runners came out for our Spring 5k.

If I didn't believe in "pregnancy brain" before, I certainly do now.  All morning long I received a succession of questions that were followed by my response that went something like this "Uuummm."  All joking aside, I really felt less prepared for this event than years past.  It was hard to handle my own disappointment but as everyone has assured me, the crowds didn't realize the small fires that were put out all morning long! 

The weather was great, we were overwhelmed with amazing volunteers, and the girls all achieved their goal of finishing the 5k!  Congratulations to all of the girls and women, men and boys who ran on Saturday!  And thank you to all the coaches and volunteers who helped out!

Directly after clean-up from the 5k, Alex and I dashed off to the mountains for a fun family reunion.  About 35 members of the Cole family (my mom's side) met up on Lake Nantahala for the weekend.  I got to spend time with my grandma, aunts, uncles, cousins, and even my little brother and sister!  I feel so blessed to spend so much time with my family, especially my brother and sisters this spring.  Already two visits in two weeks, and one more coming up in just a few more weeks!  I am so lucky!
I was up so late on Saturday, and then up pretty early on Sunday so after breakfast with the fam, Alex and I hit the road and I slept the whole way home.  The sleeping continued once we got home, and I managed to sleep away my very first (almost) Mother's Day.  My friends made me feel so special with cards and texts all day long!  I cannot believe I will be a mom soon.  The reality of my situation has yet to sink in. 

And just like that we are back to Monday!  Now I have lots of clean up to do to make up for a very fun and exciting and busy weekend!  Have a great day!
