labor day weekend

we had a fun weekend. although it started out sad. friday night i helped our friends, ciara and mike, pack up their budget truck for their move to florida. sad! :( they're moving so mike can work for the devil rays and ciara can go to medical school. now we have one more fun vacation place to go visit friends. san fran, LA, soon denver, KANSAS (ha!) and now tampa.

justin had shows in minnesota on friday and saturday. he'll tell you about them if he ever finishes his series. after i helped ciara and mike move, i took riley to the dog park, stopped at blockbuster and ran 1.5 miles. pretty productive if i do say so myself. saturday i was pretty much a bum until late morning. i went to wal-mart to finish scanning our wedding pictures for my scrapbook that i'm putting off. my creative juices have stopped flowing. that night i watched step up 2. it's pretty much one of the most awesome movies ever if you go into it knowing the acting is going to be REALLY bad. i love cheesy teen dance movies. center stage? anyone?

justin got home sunday morning around 9:00. I convinced him to shower and go to church with me even though he was exhausted. good thing too, otherwise he'd be going to hell. i grilled lunch and before i was finished, justin was asleep. i ever so gently woke him up by bouncing on the bed and telling him he better get up NOW before the chicken got cold. then we both went back to sleep for about 2 hours! watching cheesy teen dance movies late at night makes me tired. justin had a show at tootsie's sunday night and i went to watch another friend of our's band, mean tambourines. it was pretty good. it was nice because it was outside. we both fell into bed hoping to fall asleep quickly because we had to get up eeeeearly the next morning.

that's right, on labor day, the one day i didn't have to set my alarm for work, my alarm went off at 5:30 am. we dragged ourselves out of bed and drove down to franklin for the franklin classic 5K. a bunch of our friends from church were running too, so it was fun. justin and i did pretty good for not really training at all. justin finished in 31 minutes and i finished in 33. we came back home, fell into bed and slept til about 11:30. We didn't go on a hike like last year, but we did have a pretty active day. We headed back down to spring hill for sand volleyball at 2. we played for 2 hours before we all decided if we played any longer we'd collapse. then we went over to the worstell's (a family at church) house for a bbq. when we got back home and flopped into bed at 8:30, it felt like 11:30. we decided that since we had been terrible dog owners we should take riley for a walk. so we did. then we really went to bed. i think i was asleep 2.5 seconds BEFORE my head hit the pillow.

p.s. because i didn't have pictures, i tried to put links to as many things as possible in this post. :)

HA HA! That cracked me up....I, too, am a big Centerstage fan. I'm sure I would like Step It Up.
