Why Can't Weekends be Longer?

It's Monday
I started Monday off with a run...

I was able to run 19 miles last week...
(•◡•)
Got a new pair of running shoes half price...

Went to Busch Gardens over the weekend...
Why does my honey look like he has picked up modeling  job? 

Hung out with my sweetie :) 
Ate loooots of good food...
Rode the funnest roller coaster ever, twice...

saw Penny the eagle...

and did an awesome drop ride...
If you have 18 seconds watch this....this was fun!!!

So life is good, how was your weekend? Do you love a good roller coaster drop?!

    1. I hate being trapped at work when it's nice!
      All weekends should be at least three days, I say it all the time, I am mad at whoever invented the 5 day work week.

  5. That sounds like such a fun weekend! :) I loved rollies when I was a kid and tried them out a few years ago - I didn't do as well on them as I used to (well, after, ha) but I still had a blast! :)

  6. Karen yes, why can't the weekends be longer??? Your weekend looks fabulous!!! I have to admit I have a love/hate relationship with rollercoasters... I dont ride any but the old fashioned kind. I dont care much for ones that spiral, go backwards, or leave your feet dangling...

    1. The older rickety-wood ones are very scary, but I will ride them lol The more dangle, drop, and twist the better for me.
      I will say it again...all weekends should be at least three days. I am mad at whoever invented the 5 day work week. lol

  7. Sounds like a great weekend. I'm exhausted from mine--between my race and my son's 2 rugby matches, oh and I worked on Saturday--I need another day off! LOL

    1. Always awesome to see in their natural environment. I saw a few in Montana and was awed, Penny had a bum wing so he's a rescue at the park.

  9. So funny how your husband looks like he is just sitting posing for any picture in that action shot... I probably would have been screaming my head off!

  10. I do love a good roller coaster! I have a hard time if the line is ascending the tower--I am not a fan of heights, and waiting on a metal staircase...UGH!
    We did yard work, but I enjoyed being outside! Today, is BEAUTIFUL!!!

    1. Glad you enjoyed some nice weather.
      The meta staircase reminded me of the scariest heights I ever encountered - a light house, talk about tough, much worse than a roller coaster!

  11. Love the quick picture synopsis! HA ! Cute idea. Sounds like you had a great weekend. I still can't move from Saturday's half marathon!! I've never been so happy for handi-cap handles in the bathroom. :)

    1. Yes! I feel so fortunate we spent the last cool day outside! Sunday was a little hotter, and I think from here on out it's 80's and above... hello VA humidity

  13. Your hubby does look like he's posing perfectly in the roller coaster picture! That's too awesome!

    When I was a kid I was terrified of roller coasters. In my teens I braved them, but now as an adult I'm so over faking being brave! haha

    It looks like you two had a really fun weekend - I'm so glad! I know a couple of months ago you went through a rough patch but now you're smiling in all of your pics!

      I love a good drop, but it's not for everyone.
      We had a great weekend :) Life still has challenges, but we got to have some fun!
