Weekend Shenanigans.

I'm really terrible about updating. Whoops.

Here's a brief recap of my last two weekends.... because updating about just one at a time would be boring, amiright?

Sami's Shenanigans

Last weekend.

It was homecoming and I had an absolute blast. Sometimes working at the college you graduated from can make homecoming seem like a "normal" work thing... but not this year. I decided to embrace homecoming for all it was worth and had one of the best weekends in a while. I usually get stuck working the student homecoming dance but this year managed to sneak away for a night out with my friends. :) 
I started Saturday morning with an unexpected homecoming 5k PR/WIN! I have to be honest, I was totally NOT expecting it. My legs were pretty tired from some tough workouts that week but... they must have had some extra juice left in them because they pulled out a 21:56 on a TOUGH/hilly course. :)  I was the first female to cross the finish line--it was one of those moments where many things came full circle. This was the first 5K I EVER ran 3 years ago and to win it that day felt awesome. 
The rest of the day was spent catching up with my best friends. C & A were both in town (staying with me!) and we got into some typical BFL (our code name) shenanigans. We headed to the football game for our sorority alumni tailgate, watched the game until about half time, and then decided it was time to head back to my place to "get ready" for the alumni gathering. I won't go into detail but... we woke Sunday morning and it felt like old times again. :) (I'm also pretty sure Peter was about to kill us...... haha)
I would also just like to say that I absolutely love the fact that although my two best friends and I all live a part from each other, the fact that when we're together, no matter how long it's been, everything feels exactly the same. I'm so thankful to have them in my life. :) 

..... and now moving on to this weekend.

So... I only have one picture from this weekend. But it's a good one. This past weekend I took the first step toward one of my ultimate career dreams. I got my first fitness certification! It's no secret that my boss & I are fitness junkies and have been doing Insanity for literally the last 7 months (along with other workouts too.. but we always come back Insanity). SO... we decided it was about time that we took the plunge and got certified to teach an Insanity class. So yes, we're certifiably insane. ;) But seriously.... the class was everything I had hoped it would be and more. I'm not one to get sore usually but by the time we made the four hour drive back home after the class was over, I was aching from head to toe. And that my friends, is one of my favorite feelings in the world. :) I've already got my ACE group fitness instructor manual out looking toward my next cert. ;) 

There you have it. My last two weekends in a nutshell. And now it's Monday and I'm already dreaming of this upcoming weekend. :)

Have a great week ya'll!
