Happy weekend:

Happy Friday, friends! Got any fun plans for the weekend? Saturday is the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital Marathon. You know, the one I've been training for since August. Well, guess what? I'm not running it. We're not going to Memphis at all. There's some pretty nasty winter weather in central Arkansas right now that was going to make driving to Memphis at night dangerous. So, we just decided to skip it for our safety and sanity. Instead of braving the weather, we'll be snuggled up at home under mounds of blankets. I would say that I am sad about missing it, but if I'm being honest, I'm actually relieved. Marathon training has not been enjoyable for me and I was dreading running the race. I feel pretty good about my decision to stay home.

In other news, here's what's been going on with us lately:
  1. We got to spend time with family in St. Louis over the weekend and it was so much fun.
  2. Kristin is home from Delaware! I've really enjoyed getting to catch up with her.
  3. We've been having Order (well, 3/4 of the Order) get-togethers since Krit has been home. It's been great having coffee (hot chocolate) dates with these lovely ladies.
  4. We took advantage of some Cyber Monday deals to pick up some things on our "want" list!
  5. Sorry for the radio silence this week. I just can't really seem to get started. I'll do better next week, I swear.
Crossing my fingers that my office gets closed today! Wishing for a snow day! 
Have a great weekend, everyone! And good luck to all the marathon runners! Stay safe and dry!
