Has it really been 10 years??

This past weekend, I celebrated my 10 year class reunion. Mind you, this was the first time that I have seen most of these people since the day we threw our graduation hats in the air at ol' Decatur High...David kept asking me if I was having anxiety about going...and to be honest, I may have had a little. I was always going to go, but it is kind of nerve racking to walk into a room of your old classmates. I got along well with everyone in my class except for one girl. The movie "Mean Girls" yeah, it was based on her. She was the only person I didn't really care to see. Its always nice though when you get the last laugh, and I of course did. I will just keep that little jewel to myself though! :) Here are some shots of the night...

You're doing what?

This weekend, I had a few extra hours, so where do I go? To the river of course! Wilson and I packed up and headed to Sugar Creek for a few hours of fun! I called one of my neighbors to ask if I could borrow his canoe and he said of course! That is the thing about my lovely neighbors at the river...everyone is so nice and always willing to invite you over for a burger, or a boat ride! Anywho, so my other neighbor Galen was out working in his yard when Wilson and I arrived. I told him that I had talked to Bobby and I was going to be going for a little canoe ride....

Galen: "You're doing what?"
Anna: "Going on a little canoe trip.."
Galen: "With Wilson?"
Anna: "Well of course..."
Galen: "Do you think that is such a good idea?"
(Insert Wilson doing the crazy run in circles around the yard and jumping back in forth into the mud)
Anna: "He will be fine, he will settle down once he gets in the boat..."
Galen: "Well alright, but just be aware, my boats out of gas, so I can't come get you if you flip over."

There is the confidence you like to hear before you put a 70 pound lab in a super unstable canoe. But just like always, Wilson surprised me and sat there like a champ. And thank goodness for that because even if he shifted his body weight from one leg to the other I thought we were going to tip over!



We then did a little fishing when we got back and caught a bass! I was trying to get some size perspective on the fish so I held it up to Wilson's head to take a picture of it for David....

Then he decided he wanted to see what bass tastes like...don't worry though, he just barely licked it and then we put it back in the water. I'd say we had another successful day of fun on the river!!

Putt Putt Fun!

Friday night, we picked up Steven and headed to play a little putt putt. I haven't played in at least a year, so I was really excited. In case you all have forgotten, I am extremely competitive. However, with my young impressionable nephew with me, I tried to not act like a psycho, so I totally tuned it down. Well, until David tells Steven, "Dude, don't let her lose or she will totally get ticked!" So much for making a good impression. I played it off and told him David was just teasing. And, surprisingly enough, I came in 2nd place, and wasn't bothered by it at all. We had a good time and that is all that matters. My whole, "2nd place of the 1st place looser" mentality has to go when there is a youngster around! :)

This would have been a perfectly good picture if someone would have not decided that we have too many "normal" pictures....

Penn State Weekend

This past weekend, Alabama played Penn State in Tuscaloosa. It was a pretty cool game considering the history of the teams playing each other. While we were tailgating, a HUGE rain shower dropped out of the sky onto the quad. You could hear the screams and see the rain coming towards us. By the time the storm hit us, there were people under our tent that I didn't even know. We were all boxed in there and let me tell you how stinky we were. I bought this super cute dress to wear to the game, and I will spare you the details, but it doesn't do much for a sweaty body. I will be leaving that dress at home until the weather is cold... :) We even got to see some of our family before the game for my Aunt Patsy's birthday and anniversary celebration. However, note to not plan any activity to be held at or around Tuscaloosa on a game day. It is absolutely insane and everyone was late getting to the party due to the traffic. We had a great time though seeing everyone and celebrating with our family!

Labor Day...

This Labor Day we didn't do anything too exciting....we decided to have a little picnic down by the river which was really nice. So we hopped on Buzzy's golf cart and took off. Wilson of course had a large time swimming and we just relaxed a little. There is something about holidays and being at the river that just goes together like peanut butter and jelly...or maybe that is just my idea of a good holiday. Maybe, fingers crossed, next year we will actually have the shack built at the river and can stay there! :) Anyone want to contribute to the fund?

First Bama Game 2010

Saturday, David had a wedding, so me, Steven and my mom headed to Tuscaloosa for the game. We have a group that we tailgate with every year, so we met up with them, set our stuff up and wandered around for a little bit. Several of the Phi Mu Superfriends were going to be at this game, so we all met up as well. It was so nice to see everyone and we had absolutely beautiful weather for the whole day. Enjoy the photos!

Uh oh....I think I tore something

Saturday, me, Micah and Justin ran in the Killen Founders Day Run. Now, Micah and I have been running together in the mornings at 5:00...yes, it was her idea, not mine. Running at 5:00 makes me feel like I have a hangover all day...but its good to have an accountability partner. (That makes me sound like an alcoholic....) Anyways, Micah had told me that this was a flat run, which makes me happy. I am not a fan of hills...I know they are good for you, strengthen your legs, etc., but for me, they make me feel like I am running to my death. I can't breathe, my legs burn...I'll spare you anymore details. Well, we started off this run and there was the big I am thinking to myself, surely this must be the only one. Nope, not even close. As the race went on and I passed yet another hill, and then another, I silently cursed Micah....oh, and speaking of my faithful running partner, yeah, she took off like a jack rabbit at the beginning, so my goal was to just keep her in view. Well minus feeling like I was having a heart attack, it worked out pretty good for me. I had my lowest time ever for running at 5K, and I got 2nd place in my age thanks accountability partner, for pushing my boundaries...and my heart rate... :)
