On Friday night, we met up at the Lafayette airport to pick up a Florida friend who was in to visit his parents. Somehow, he knew I loved Disney candy apples (I mean, who doesn't?) and he managed to surprise me with one right there in the airport! I could not believe my eyes!!
This is my "oh my goodness I'm so excited this can't be real" face....
After leaving the airport, we had dinner at a local restaurant, then I crashed in the car for the hour drive home. I had an early long run on Saturday and needed my rest! :)
On Saturday morning, I met up with my BRF Heather for a run! We intended to run 6 miles but took the "long way around" by accident and ended up running 6.5 miles...whoops! Ah well, no harm was done! The run felt great and we feel prepared for the Gulf Coast Half Marathon this weekend!
This is us from 2012's GC Half...can't believe it's been that long since we ran this event! We also ran it in 2011 and enjoyed the beautiful weather, so I hope that will return again this weekend!
Back to the weekend...after our Saturday run, I headed over to the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event for a 5K. I hadn't yet decided what to do....walk it, jog it, or volunteer. Well, since no extra volunteers were needed (when does that ever happen?), I decided to stick with a coworker and see how far I could go! You can read all about Saturday's event here! :)
After a nice, long Saturday afternoon nap, Jason and I decided to join my parents for the McNeese State football game! We are all alumni of McNeese, so we enjoy cheering them on!
I'm still dying over the photo bomb kid with the finger behind us!
Back in the day, Jason was a part of the Pride of McNeese's marching band, so watching halftime is always a must!
Jason's family also happened to be at the game, so we sat and chatted with them for a while! It was nice to visit and catch up!
I also watched the Astros game (which they won)...then they happened to bomb Monday's game but ah well that's neither here nor there!
Oh yes, remember that apple? Well, it's all gone now. I ate half on Saturday and finished the remainder on Sunday! It was so good and completely lived up to my expectations!
For those of you into baseball, what do you think of Utley's barreling slide into second? Personally, I get that it's a "thing" to break up a double play, but I'm baffled by the fact that catchers wear gear and it's illegal to crash into them...why is it "legal" to crash into second baseman who aren't wearing any gear at all? I definitely think what Utley did was wrong, but if Tejada's leg hadn't been broken, would the incident have been as big of a deal? It's overall just a crazy crazy situation. Mets fans, my heart goes out to you!! I would be livid had the same situation happened to one of my teams!!
If you're into baseball, what team are you following in the post season? Are you a fan of Disney Candy/Caramel Apples?
