Weekend Snaps

At the risk of sounding indecently older than I am, where has this year gone? I mean how is it even possible that we are in September staring down the barrel into October? It seems like just yesterday I was donning a sparkly dress hiking a mountain and celebrating the start of this year. 

With all the business, I have forgotten to blog about some of the fun activities I've been up to. 

There was a trip to Nashville to see one of my very best friends and her husband. Tara and I were roommates in college for two years and had the most fun and silliest adventures. There's hardly a day that goes by that I don't miss doing my makeup in the bathroom with Tara talking about our nights while she ate her pop-tart and Mountain Dew. #collegediet 
BFFs after all these years!

Then & Now
Thank God we discovered flat irons and bronzer

There were fun dinners with new friends

And coffee dates with old ones...

And There Were Races....I placed first in my age group and Danielle won THIRD OVERALL....I mean what?!?! I have crazy fast and talented friends. In truthfulness....Danielle worked her buns off for this race just showing how much hard work pays off. So proud of her! 

On a side note...thank God for photo filters. I look like a split between a 12 year old boy and a gremlin when I run. I followed this girl with a fluffy blonde pontyail the whole six miles and it was still all fluffy and bouncy when she crossed the finish line and wiped the one droplet of sweat off her forehead...I wanted to run her over and ring out my sopping wet stringy ponytail on her. ...kidding (kind of). 

What have you been up to? Fill a girl in!
XO, A

Love that pic of you and Ilene--you both look beautiful!
And this might sound creepy...but I had a dream last night that me, you and Ilene were going jogging downtown! And you both left me in the dust as I was yelling, "Wait up!! This is only my third post baby run!!!"
