Weekend of Firsts

This has been a very eventful weekend and full of many firsts!

Let me recap the WHOLE weekend...

Friday- I was excited to leave work a little early until I saw all the brake lights on the way home. Apparently I didn't get the memo that Obama was having a rally at the arena next to my house. I'm not a fan of traffic or Obama so it wasn't a good situation (political side note- I don't like talking or hearing about politics. I don't really like any of the candidates and its not only Obama i dislike)
I got home and planted myself on the couch with my camera in hand! I needed to be ready to capture the first pictures of the engaged couple. After waiting patiently, Kelly came through the door with a BLING BLING ring and I started snapping away. Here are a few shots...



I went to a cook out at Mike's friends house later that evening. I got to experience 215 POUNDS of boston butts (i think that's right) being cooked on the grill. I have NEVER seen that much meat in my life. They were cooking this bbq for our church to serve at the Men's Rescue Mission on Saturday. They cooked this bbq for 18 hours and only slept about 3 hours! I ate the final product and actually enjoyed it :) Please see the gross picture below...
Saturday I had my first lake day of the season with Whitney Lynn! After I broke her mom's vase (yes, i'm the worst) while moving some rugs, we layed out! We had a good time catching up and getting burnt. No tubing this time...we will save our singing tubing adventures for later in the summer.

Sunday- Mike was a trooper and put my bike together. I was so excited when it was done and couldn't wait to ride it! Kel and I took our bikes for a spin around the parking lot and I was very impressed I remembered how to ride. My bike didn't fall apart so Mike passed the "handy" test! I bought a helmet the other day and after spending forever trying them on, I bought a kids helmet. I have a pea head, as Kel calls it, and the adult ones were too big. oh well!
Mike and I took Zoe and O'Malley to Freedom Park on Sunday afternoon. We put both dogs in the back of his wrangler. Even though we had to lift him into the jeep, he sat and enjoy the breeze and smells throughout the ride. There's hope for O'Malley after all.

Here is a picture of the blue bullet!

All in all...it was a great weekend but very busy! Let the wedding planning and triathlon training begin.

You did more in a weekend than I do in a month!

Love the blue bullet, it looks hot. Now we just need to see a picture of that wetsuit...

The Blue bullett is big sexy! I love it. I also must say that the ring is devine!

I'm jealous you got so much more accomplished than I did!

Boston Butts, EW. Kelly's ring is gorgeous (as is the Blue Bullet)! I'm glad to have your blog to add to my stalking list :)
