weekend in review

While this weekend flew by, it was definitely awesome. It started Thursday night when Mike and I went to see the Hunger Games.
With my tickets in hand - and my bright red sunburn...ouch.

In the theater, waiting for the movie to start
If you haven't seen it yet, go now. Don't pass go, just leave work tonight and go. I loved the books and while the movie wasn't quite as good, it was still awesome on it's own. Mike really liked the movie and he had never read the books.
Then we spent all day Saturday doing work around my house. My cousin, aunt and uncle all came over to pitch in. We took down 3 trees in my backyard, re-grouted a bathroom floor and caulked a shower. It was a super productive day. After working around the house and yard all day, Mike and I went to his shooting competition awards dinner. He shot very well this year, his average went up by about 3 points which is huge for him. The gun club dinner isn't really my scene. I'm not all that into guns in general, and I'm not really that kind of person. It took a lot of effort to not be super judgmental, and this was the only picture I snapped while there.
They're a classy bunch this gun club.
Sunday was Mike's sister's birthday. We went to the mall to do some birthday shopping for my sisters and for his sister before heading to his parents' house to have dinner and birthday cake for his sister. I had a ton of luck and got great deals for Jenn. I'll share the deals after her birthday (4/7) so I don't spoil any surprises.
All in all, a fantastic weekend. We have some more work to do around the house that I can't wait to share with you guys next Monday!

I know this is random for this post, but I read all about your Disney marathon and am sort of wondering, HOW did you get into running? Did you follow a plan? Did you hate it in the beginning? Was it hard on your knees, etc? I am JUST starting. Can't run a mile yet. I just began C25K 3 weeks ago and am always inspired by runners!!!
