Memorial Day in Pictures!

It was decided that Abby and I would host the Memorial Day picnic this year. And I have to say, it was a success! 🙂

This was the watermelon-lemonade that I made! 🙂 It had watermelon chunks in it and everyone said it was delicious. 🙂

This was our meal. Roast beef melts, cole-slaw, apple-walnut salad, watermelon, corn salad, and gazpacho!!! 🙂

The roast beef melts were super amazing!!!

I didn’t take any pictures of our various desserts because two families came over and I stopped taking pictures of FOOD and started taking pictures of my friends! 🙂

Abby and Ann were obviously SUPER interested!!! 😉

I forgot to take picture before Lisa and Tess left so there are only pictures of Abby, Ann, Mary, and I! But there are lots of them!!! 😉

Me getting my hair cut. It’s not really a noticeable difference.

My hair is so RED!!! O_o

Abby was not on board with the picture-taking.

Ann, Abby, Mary, and I!!!!


And then, after the party was over… I went on a much-needed run. I was very sore from my sprints on Saturday so I needed to work out my sore muscles. I ran 3.1 miles. I wasn’t impressed with my time. I signed up for the 5k last night. It’s in two weeks and I want to place in it. But I looked at the results from last year and I have to be running an average sub-7 minute pace so I’m not sure if I will be able to do that. Today I ran 22:49. I wasn’t happy. That is an obvious change from last year’s time but I really want to get it to 21 minutes. I did run my last mile at a 7:07 pace though so that was awesome! 🙂 Anyways, I am really going to try to get faster before the race but I don’t want to burn out. I guess we’ll see! 🙂 Also, part of it depends on conditions. Today I was tired out from throwing a party, I was sore from Saturday’s training and it was REALLY hot out. I was sweating buckets. Hopefully on race day, I will be well-rested, have relaxed muscles, and it will be cooler since it’s in the morning! 🙂

This is me after my run. Pardon the bathtub in the background!! Our bathroom has really good lighting! 😉

So, yep! 🙂 That was my day.

How was your Memorial Day?
