Happy Weekend to You

Missing work on Monday really made this week fly by.
4 more hours in this wretched office and it will officially be the weekend.

I baked 3 cakes last night and made one big batch of Baby Cakes.
I tried a new flavor, blueberry lemon, and it's quite scrumptious.
Tonight I still have red velvet, vanilla and chocolate peanut butter to make.
When I'm done I'll have at least 100 Baby Cakes.

Tonight's plan:
Asleep by 10PM

Tomorrow Mr. P and I will be waking up at 5:30am to drive to Greensboro, NC for the 10k Freedom Run.
I'm not going to lie...I kinda sorta dread it.
Or maybe it's fairer to say I'm nervous.
After the MacFest 10k I realized that I kinda despise running in temperatures upward of 70 degress.
Fortunately this course seems to be partially shaded and they have 2 spray stations.
Wish me luck dear friends.

After the race we're going to have breakfast at Tex and Shirley's (one of Mr.P's favorites) and then head home to Charlotte where the plan is to lay by the pool all day with Carlz, Em Barzee and Abbie.
Thoughts of our post-race plans will probably be what actually gets me through the race.
"Come on baby girl(how I refer to myself when running), you can do it! In 20 minutes you'll be eating biscuits and gravy"!

Okay, I'm kind of kidding.
Deep down I'm happy about all these races.
I think it's safe to say we'll definitely be in good shape come October 18th.

114 days

Have a happy weekend.
My hope for both yours and mine is that it's filled with sunshine, laughter and good friends.
See you Monday.


  1. You have such a lovely blog...and 114 days until your wedding :-) So lovely. Have a great weekend, much love: Evi

  2. You'll do great darling. Get lost in your music and the race will fly by :) Perhaps a little Michael might be the right dose of greatness.
