It's Friday! This was one of those weird weeks that felt super long and super short all at once. I somehow can't believe it's Friday, and yet can't believe the events that took place Monday were this week.

It was an extra special week because Jordan took a long layover en route to Charlotte Tuesday night. I've always loved sharing our birthday, and was extra, extra happy to get to celebrate our 25.5 together, too. We went for a walk in Piedmont Park and had a great dinner at Murphy's. I just love her :)

The week was also marked by two other great smevents (small, but important events), including Ashley designing my new blog header. Is it bragging to say it's beautiful since it's on my blog? I'm not sure. But either way, I think she did a wonderful job!

Also, I did the.best.spinning.class.ever. I spent the entire 60 minutes dying, and yet wishing it would never end. It took spinning to a whole new level and I cannot wait to go back.

I hope your week was made of great events, too. Big or small!


we say we aren't competitive...

But on a recent trip to Denver to meet the wonderful, beautiful Diego (of whom I took no pictures. which is sad and lame), Courtney and I engaged in a little lawn mowing competition. We raced to see who could get their half done the fastest and I'd say the videos are better than any description I could offer...

I had so much fun with Courtney and Ashley (and Crosby, Griffin and Diego) and I was rilly sad to leave them, because they're wonderful and fun and the bestest.

Root, root, root for the home team

Almost as much as I love summers by the lake, I love an evening baseball game (I said almost). They've become somewhat of a tradition in the last few years and they make me so excited.

I recently learned that in 1935, the first MLB night game was played between the Reds and the Phillies at Crosley Field in Cincinnati.

It'd be perfect if I was going to a Braves game tonight to commemorate the anniversary, but I didn't really have much of a warning, here, seeing as when I say I learned about it recently, I mean yesterday...

Instead I'm going to a cookout, but I'll be certain to hum Take Me Out to the Ball Game every chance I get.

I might also watch the Sandlot. It feels right.
