Feeling Peachy

Hey!! What's up! Just a quick post before I hop in bed. My goal this week is to get in bed at 10 every night this week, which I've yet to make. Since my alarm goes off at 5:23 I never get 8 hours of sleep, but it would be nice to get a little closer this week. Last night I was an hour + a few minutes late on my goal......Oh well.

We had a great, but ridiculously busy weekend. The art show Friday night was awesome and most Brent sold his piece! Out of the 60 pieces shown, only 6 sold so he was really, really happy! And I was very proud!

I hardly slept at all Friday night and Saturday morning's alarm clock rang way too early. But, we had lots to do and we really wanted to watch the Tom King half. We got up around 6:30, ate a fast breakfast and started running to the Coliseum. The best thing about being a spectator is not worrying about bathroom lines, chip pickups, or dropping stuff back off at your car. We tried to find friends but only ended up running into one former coworker before the race. It was so fun to stand on the other side of the line and see the fast guys just take OFF! We were able to spot both David and Michele when the runners passed but no one else we knew. We waited until everyone passed and then took off after them. We were able to pass a ridiculous amount of runners at a really casual, easy pace. We ran the course for 2 miles and then stopped and cheered for everyone we had passed. One frantic woman came over and had me help her take her jacket off and repin her bib to her shirt. It was in the upper 20's but the sun was warm. Then we turned around and ran back. We got a lot of the more festive slow runners asking us if we were the leaders! =) We made it back to the Stadium around 49 minutes into the race so we sat to watch the finish. The sun was still not warming our side and we were FREEZING!!! About 15 minutes later the first guys came in. They were booking it!!! We cheered for runners as they came in until around the 1:30 hour mark and we were just shaking cold and needed to head back and move on with the day. I wish we had been able to stay and watch the runners we know! We made it back to the house with 8.1 miles under our belt.

Essentially the rest of the day was spent picking out cabinets and appliances. Literally. We left our house at 1 to go and pick out appliances/work with our designer and we got home at a little after 10. Insane. But we have an awesome design and managed to get all the appliances picked out and got really good deals on it all. We've already got the gas range and Advantium sitting in the dining room and tomorrow our single oven and telesc. downdraft arrive!

There's a lot more I have to say but it's 10 so it's time to wind down! I've got my bib# for this weekend's marathon I need to post. You can do all the online tracking for this one - what pressure!!!!!!

Good night!

Why is the alarm set for 5:23? Why not 5:15, 5:20, or 5:30?
