Clue, Shamrocks, & Spring

This weekend was fantastic! Not in the "something totally earth-shattering happened" kindof fantastic.... it was just FUN, and carefree and all kinds of awesome!

It started when I got my CUTE cowl scarf in the mail from sweet Jess over at The In-Between. Her mom handmade it for her giveaway!! If you don't follow her yet, you really should. She's cute, fashionable and funny. So click that link already! ;)

We also had my brother-in-law and his KBug (meaning rock star girlfriend!) over Thursday night just to hang out. We finally played The Office version of Clue that we got for Christmas... and WOW, it was fun.

And intense. And we all thought we were going to win.... Until I made an 'accusation' at the end -only to open the envelope and reveal that we had played the entire game wrong. Wrong cards in the envelope darnit!! We laughed it off but MUST play again. I'm a little addicted to board games. (NERD.ALERT)

Friday was lay-low kinda' night because our big "Shamrock Shuffle" 5k was Saturday morning. I can't TELL you how long it took me to fall asleep Friday night though. I had job-interview, first-day-of-school and major-surgery type of nerves ALL rolled into one. I was super nervous about the race, and I have no idea why!

It was of COURSE, freezing cold Saturday morning in Ohio so I had lots of under armour working for me. I think by the time the race started it was maybe 34 degrees. And windy. Which is why my lips feel like cracked sandpaper today!!

But the race was AWESOME! I had so much fun and actually got an okay time for me. It was my first race back from almost 18 months of slacking. I wish I had more pictures because I know crossing the finish line I was smiling ear to ear!
Post race w/ the hubs! He got his best 5k time ever, too! :)
After the race we hit up the mall for no particular reason. I'm trying not to let myself realllly shop until I'm at my goal weight--- Which by the way, I'm down 11.5 pounds since the beginning of the year! WOOT!  Sunday was GORGEOUS and sunny (where was that for the 5k?!) Our day was filled with church, lunch, a start on our spring cleaning and a loooonggg leisurely walk in our neighborhood soaking in the sun. Ahhh, Spring is ((unofficially)) HERE!

Happy Monday all! :) Did you get to enjoy any beautiful weather this weekend??
