Saturday morning I had committed to a walk for March of Dimes. It started at 9:00 and I knew if I didn't get a workout in prior to the walk, it wasn't going to happen. So, I ran to the start (about 3 miles) and then participated in the 2.5 mile walk.
After the walk, my weekend obligations were over and it was time for fun. Next on my agenda was Louisiana Beer Fest! This was my first year to attend. It wasn't quite what I expected, but oh so much fun (I mean, when is day drinking not fun?!?). My assumption was that vendors from each brewery would have booths set up and we would meander from booth to booth sampling. The set up was more of just lots of different beers brought by the organizers of the event with volunteers pouring them, therefore, they were not familiar or educated about the beers. When we walked in, they gave us a tiny 2 oz. sampling glass and I thought Really? This is all they are going to give us? After we worked our way 1/8th of the way around the room, I was thankful all we had was a tiny glass. Initially I planned on trying every single beer, but there was no way it was possible, so I started skipping all dark beers. Some beers were delicious, some were awful, some were interesting. To be honest, I don't remember specifics except for Ghost Face Killah, which was so spicy and peppery hot
Post beer tasting, we headed to my friend's graduation party, then to my godson's house where the post party was taking place, then to drink some Seersuckers and Blanton's bourbon, then to OB's. When I finally got home at a very, very late hour, I somehow managed to drop a can of paint in the garage on my foot. My left big toe is in pain, purple, and swollen. I haven't been able to wear shoes for 2 days and have no idea how I'm going to CrossFit or run!
After a day like Saturday, I was pretty useless Sunday. I slept late (8:00 AM is VERY late for me), did some laundry, and went to my parents for lunch. After stuffing myself with ribs and chocolate yummy, mom and I did a little shopping while dad napped. I bought these shorts

My Sunday evening was rounded out with finishing my laundry, eating White Chocolate Wonderful from the jar, and watching the Kardashians premiere. I definitely had time and intentions of fitting in a workout, but my toe hurt! I've heard of baseball players being put on the disabled list because of a hang nail or hurt toe and always thought it was silly, but now I understand.
Why can't the weekend go on forever?!? At least it's only a 4 day work week for me!
What did you do this weekend? Is there any store you feel too old to shop in? I feel very old in AE and Forever 21, but I shop there anyway.
