My Stepmom’s Coming to Visit <3

Short post today, and I think the title may have given it away.  My stepmom is flying in this weekend!!  If you remember, she was diagnosed with breast cancer in January and had a double mastectomy last month.  This is the first time I’ve seen her since all of this cancer business started so I’m super excited!  She’s such a strong and amazing woman – I can’t wait to hug her neck!

She’s flying in for just a very quick visit to watch my stepsister’s college lacrosse game. I’ve been trying to get all my usual weekend stuff done so I don’t miss any time with them.  This included a 10 mile run after work last night. It sounded like a great idea when I thought of it but after not sleeping much the night before and a very long day at work, all I wanted to do was go home and crawl into bed. But I didn’t. (Yay, Gina!!)  Instead, I drug myself to the beach and got going. It was actually pretty nice.

My view. <3

The first 6 miles went by quickly and then I took a potty stop.  We have a mini-Vegas like casino strip where I live so I ducked into one of their bathrooms. Hooray for not having to use a portopottie!!

Swanky, I tell ya!

Swanky, I tell ya!

Bonus, my running girls met me and finished out the last 4 miles.  I was exhausted the last mile of the run so if I decide to do this again, I’ll at least make sure to get a proper amount of sleep.

Not sure what this weekend has in store, other than watching my sister kill her lacrosse game, but it’s going to be a fun one.  I’m just so excited that Starla is well enough for a visit!!

Question:  What fun plans do you have for the weekend?
