Friends = Fun!

admittedly I was a bit of a loaner in high school. It was mostly self-inflected since my boyfriend went to a different school and hated all my friends. I always chose him over friends. FAIL!

So sometimes I’m surprised at how much friends really are and that people do want to hang out with me (besides my husband).

Sunday we hung out with friends at  graduation open house party and then we moved across town to a bonfire. Want to have a ginormous fire? Burn kitchen cabinets! Our friends are getting their kitchen redone, so they burned all the old stuff.

Bye-bye cabinet!

Today friend fun continued with a sweaty 4 mile hike on the Cadillac Pathway and a fun dinner at Da Dawg House. I indulged in a kielbasa with sauerkraut and Brent and I split an apple dumpling for dessert. It was so good and a perfect finish to a great day!

Other weekend happenings included:

– Garage Sale shopping with my mom (I scored 2 tennis rackets for $1.25!!)

– Shopping with my sister Emily. At a craft sale I got 7 hair flowers, a Michigan Christmas ornament and kettle corn. At the Shoe Dept. I got a pair of heels and a pair of flats for Hannah’s wedding and Brent a pair of sneakers.

– Strive for Stride 5k, which was our season finale Girls on Track 5k! Full Girls on Track/Girls on the Run recap coming this week.

– Cleaning the house!

– HOT and HUMID weather…yay!


Summer Lovin’

I try sooo hard not to complain about winter, but after another day of below zero windchills and another crappy treadmill run, I’m allowing myself to look back on some of my favorite summer moments and thought I’d take you on the journey.

Brent + I with my sister Hannah and her fiance, Loren, after we helped move her to his house in Southern Illinios.

Nothing like spendng Sunday afternoon at the beach with dear friends. I love living in the Great Lakes State!

All the girls (mom and sisters) on our annual Girl's Trip! We went to the beautiful Meijer Gardens.

About to run a very tough 5k. This shirt got a hole in it today. RIP...literally!

Feeding a baby moose during our UP vacation.

Someday it will be warm again. But until that day, I’ll be thankful for fleece sheets, slippers and a husband that doubles as a heater and lets me steal his warmth 🙂

What was your favorite memory of Summer 2010?
