Jam Packed Weekend!

The "big" blizzard of 2010 arrived in the Bluegrass this past Thursday afternoon and my work was closed, Thursday and Friday, due to road conditions. I'm pretty sure I developed cabin fever by staying in the house those two days. Since Brian still had to go into the hospital those days I did manage to get some things done around the house. I had planned to go for a run, to continue training for the upcoming marathons, but my gym closed early Thursday and I honestly just didn't feel like cleaning off my car and getting out on the roads on Friday. Instead, I busted out the trainer for my bike and did a 30 minute ride. I'm still a little sore from this!!
By the time late Friday night rolled we were itching to get out so Brian and I decided to go listen to one of his friends from high school, Chris Weiss, play down at Common Grounds. We braved the cold ( and the roads!) and enjoyed some coffee, a cookie, a piece of cake and some great music. It was great a way to end a snowy, cold day :)
Saturday morning, we woke up early and got our pups ready to go spend the afternoon over at the Drexler's. We all went over to celebrate Diesel's (one their pups) 2nd birthday. We had a lot of fun and enjoyed everyone's company while we shared lots of laughs and munched on some yummy food. It was great for the dogs to run around with each other and they got to enjoy some sweet treats too! They crashed as soon as we came home and slept for the remainder of the day. We watched the UK game (we won!!!!! 16-0 this season!!!!) and then got ready for a delicious dinner at Malone's. We met up with one of my closest friends, from high school and college, and her boyfriend. It was so great to catch up with each other and I'm already looking forward to the next time they are in town :)
Today was filled with lots of errands around town as well as some cleaning around the house. Brian and I finally fit in a run at the gym and it was bath day for the pups (which they never like)!
We've been on the go all weekend and I think we're ready to crash but....time to plan for the upcoming week!!! Lots to get done!!!! Below is a pic from Chris' concert at Common Grounds. Check him out....he's on Facebook and MySpace.
