Labor Day weekend 2013

Holy crap, another weekend down AND it's already September??? How on earth did that happen? Time has been seriously flying by this year which freaks me out. A lot of people have commented on that lately. I wonder why some years fly by and others take their time? Coincidence? Maybe.
So friday afternoon after a CRAZY day of doing like 5 peoples jobs, this girl was exhausted. I had plans to go to a Riverdogs game with some friends. I didn't think I would last the entire night but I found some energy and made it happen. We had such a great time even though we sweat way more than I would like to say. Our seats were in direct sunlight for a good 2 hours. It was still hot when the sun went down but not nearly as bad. I know I shouldn't admit this but I have no idea who won that game. We were too busy chatting, walking around and letting their little boy play at the top of the stadium. Priorities people! I always love hanging out with Ashley and her family even though I don't see them very often. I love those relationships where even if you hardly see eachother, when you do it's as if no time has really passed. That's true friendship there!!
 My favorite part of the game, Color Guard and singing the national anthem! What can I say I am a bit patriotic. Hence my next picture :)

 Bekah, Me and Ashley, just a tiny bit sweaty haha
 The sky was absolutely gorgeous!!

 After the game was over they turned all the lights off and had an amazing firework show!! They were so great, I always love fireworks.

So Saturday morning I woke up earlier than I would have liked. Shopping for Kellys wedding dress is definitely worth an early morning. She ended up saying YES to the dress which looks absolutely STUNNING on her. Oh, and I got my bridesmaids dress ordered. It's obviously the one picture below. This one didn't fit and I look awkward but you get the idea. I am thinking the only alterations I will need is the length since I am 5 foot nothing. After we found the dresses we went out to lunch at Carrabas. It was pretty tasty but I did learn after eating mostly healthy lately my stomach can't handle bad food. haha lesson learned!!!
 Later saturday evening I went out with my friend Shannon and her hubby to celebrate her passing her Personal Trainer Certification Exam. I am so proud of her and can't wait to see where this takes her. She has been helping me with working out and eating better for awhile. I will definitely miss getting to workout with her almost everyday but she taught me enough so I am on my own now. Although, She is just a phone call/text away when I have questions. I ALWAYS have questions. We definitely stayed out later than I planned to the 9am bootcamp I wanted to attend didn't happen. We did however workout sunday afternoon so at least I still got in a workout. No biggie!

Labor Day!! Which was today, obviously. I woke up early and headed out to Folly Beach with Shannon and her little boy. It was so nice and luckily there was no traffic which shocked me. We stayed out there about 2 hours thankfully the breeze helped that happen. It would have been WAY too hot without the breeze.

We ended up making it to the gym before they closed for a killer leg day. Holy crap I will not be able to walk tomorrow. Lucky for me I have a massage already scheduled so I am sure Amber will definitely help me out.

Another kick butt weekend down and I hope the next one will be just as good.
