my weekend started a little early this weekend. i took friday off work-mostly to help a friend for a couple of hours in the morning. i watched my friend's little babe while she presented at a blog conference. i didn't attend the conference, but i did go see a few friends there.
after hanging out with friends for a little bit, i ran a few errands including getting my oil changed in my car. why is that one of the worst tasks? it doesn't even take that long, but i kind of hate doing it.
part of my efforts to be still includes being home a little more. i love to make plans on the weekends, and i love to have fun. after a busy week, i decided to stay home on friday night. i got caught up on some things i needed to do, and i was happy i stayed home.
saturday morning started out with a run. the plan was somewhere between 8 and 12 miles. i haven't gotten in many miles lately so i knew there was pretty much no way i could do 12. my little group planned for 8, and i pushed us a little more. we ended with about 9.5, but since i was so close i made myself get 10. it was hard, and i was tired, but i needed it. i needed to push myself.
sage and i had a fun afternoon/evening. we did a little target shopping, ate dinner at goodwood bbq, and went to an amazing spiritually uplifting night. several lds/mormon bloggers and influencers shared their testimony through word and music. i left very inspired.
i woke up to a winter wonderland on sunday morning. i know the east coast is getting slammed, but nothing shuts down for snow here. we still have to go about our days. i went to church and spent the rest of the day at the hospital waiting for my friend to have a baby. it was one of the most amazing experiences-full post coming.
how was your weekend? any exciting happs?
