Morning friends! Happy Valentine’s Day! Bobby bought me a piece of furniture that goes with our bedroom set for Valentine’s day. It’s a media chest and it’s so pretty! I will have to take pictures and show you.
I decided to wait and work on my Rouge Orleans recap until I have amazing photos from the lovely Erin, who happened to be on my team and who happens to be a photographer! Trust me…her photos are way better than mine and you will like the recap much better, so it will be worth the wait!
In the mean time, you can check out this recap video that Claim Your Journey put together. You can see my shoes (haha) at the 1:53 ish mark, and my team crossing the finish at at 4:30 mark! It gives you a small taste of the race.
There are a LOT of things going down in my life in the next few weeks, so that means there will be a lot going on here on RWS! I am home recuperating the rest of this week (even after 10.5 hours of sleep Sunday night I felt spacey and groggy all day yesterday). This weekend we are headed to my parents house for the weekend for….a Mardi Gras parade! I am excited to share a bit of my growing up/NOLA area southern culture with you all. Even though I was living with my parents in LA last year at this time, we didn’t end up making it to a parade because Mardi Gras was late and we were moving and it just didn’t work out. But this year, we are going to a parade right outside my parents neighborhood and I will take lots of pictures for you all. King cake MAY be involved.
Who ate all the king cake?!
We are also going to see some family on Sunday so it will be a jam packed weekend.
The next weekend, is the Disney Princess! We are leaving on that Friday morning EALRY and heading to Florida for 4 nights. It will be my mom, me, Karen, and her mom. I am so excited to run this race. I just had my tutu made, and I can’t wait to show y’all my outfit.
Bloggers, don’t forget, meet up on SATURDAY afternoon, details HERE.
We get back from Disney on Tuesday night, and on Wednesday I turn around and go to my parents house and then Thursday I’m heading to NOLA to work the Running Skirts booth for RnR New Orleans (and Bobby and I are running the half.) I will finally go home on Sunday afternoon. WHEW!
So that’s last weekend gone, then the next three. At least it’s all for totally fun and exciting things and I can’t wait to recap them all for you.
QOTD: Do you have anything exciting going on the next few weeks? Share!
Amy Lauren says
You have tons of exciting stuff coming up, I’m so jealous of the Disney run and meet up too, I bet that will be tons of fun to run around the parks and meet other bloggers :). Can’t wait to read about the relay, too, but I don’t blame you to wait on the recap.
Happy Mardi Gras!
Cant wait for the Rouge Orleans recap, sounded like so much fun. I will be at Rock n Roll New Orleans, I will def stop by running skirts and say hi! Happy Mardi Gras.
That’s exhausting just to read!
I’m excited and so ready to be at WDW for the princess. And to have a four day weekend just my hubby and I without the kids. 🙂
oohhh nice! I can’t believe it’s already here!
Tara Burner says

I hope you come next year!

we used to get so many king cakes from our agents down south around this time of year when i worked for an insurance company 🙂
aren’t they yummy!?
So many fun things are coming up for you! I really want to go to mardi gras one year. You can make that happen right? 😉 I also have Princess on my to-do list. I know you’ll have a blast!
well of course you know you have a free place to stay! 🙂
I was hoping you would be working the expo. I will now officially get to meet the author of the blog that I read every.single.day. I am running the full, it will be my first. My 22 miles this past weekend went well and I am looking forward to the big day. See you soon. Have a terrific time at Princess!
Aw you are so so sweet! I can’t wait to meet you. Go you for running the full!
Tiff @ Love Sweat and Beers says
Dang! Busy busy busy! 😀 I have a race this weekend. We’ll see how it goes!
Wow – you’ve got a lot going on. I can’t believe the Princess is almost here!! A week or so after that I leave for Paris! Yikes!
wow that sounds nice!
Jessica M says
Wow–sounds very busy, but lots of fun at the same time! I went to Mardi Gras once while I was in college, and let’s just say it’s an experience I will NEVER forget! 🙂
Wow! You have a crazy couple weekends planned! I’ve never done much in terms of Mardi Gras, but think it would be fun to see it up close sometime!
King Cakes are one of my favorite parts of Mardi Gras!
I had some for dinner last night and breakfast this morning 🙂
haha I just ate some about an hour ago! with cream cheese filling yum yum.
