What a weekend!!

This past Friday, September 17th 2010, two dear friends of mine joined together in holy matrimony. Oh who am I kidding trying to be all prim & proper.....THEY GOT MARRIED!!!!! I was honored to be asked to be part of the wedding and stand up with them as they said their vows and began their lives together as Mr & Mrs Gorey. I couldn't be happier for them and wish them all the happiness in the world!

Saturday morning, Taylor had her first day at Soccer Bugs!! She is in a small class with other 2-3 year olds, including our friends little guy Aaron. It was quite entertaining watching the kids pop bubbles, act like animals, play red light/green light and then a little bit of kicking a ball around in there. Not as much "soccer" as we were expecting but 45 minutes of running around on a Saturday morning sounds good to us!

We capped the weekend off at Heather's with a full day of football and then a visit from Jen & Ian later in the evening. This week is looking to be pretty quiet for once! Good thing since all of our TV shows are starting back up. ;0)

Back in business

So I've been told lately that I'm a slacker and haven't updated my blog since April. I know! It's true! I have been using Facebook as my means of keeping everyone updated as to what is going on in our world. Not good enough huh? Well, for all 5 of my followers......I'm back! I can't promise it will last a long time but I will put in a good effort to stay on top of things.

So summer has come and gone. It was so much fun! We were super busy and had something going on almost every weekend since June but I wouldn't take any of it back.....I'll catch up on sleep one day! HA! Dear Crazy.....

What did we do you ask? What didn't we do? We went to the beach twice - once to Duck, NC for our annual trip with Todd & Jac and once to Ocean City for our 3rd annual long weekend with Tom, Angela, Lauren & Antonio. Ben played a lot of golf and Taylor & I spent most weekends at Heather's pool. We went to a carnival, down to National Harbor for Pa John's birthday, Housewarming parties, bowling at King Pinz (new bowling alley in the Burg - go check it out!!), closed out Labor Day at the VA Tech football game and had lots of family time.

I've ran in 7 5K's so far in 2010! Amanda and I have a goal to run 10 in 2010 and we are well on our way to making it happen. Every race has been fun and challenging. This last one on 9/11, I set my personal best time and it's only made me want to go harder and do it again on October 9th! I'll have sissy pushing me along and Amanda waiting at the finish line with my Pumpkin Spice Latte (it's her sister's wedding day so she won't be running this one) so between those two - I'll have the motivation I need.

I'm attaching a link to our Summer pictures. WARNING - there are ALOT of them! So if you feel like looking through them all..... CLICK HERE FOR THE LINK TO SNAPFISH

We've got lots of fun stuff coming up - starting this weekend with Seca & Brian's wedding on Friday and Taylor's first day of soccer on Saturday. Until then.....
