weekend festivities

I am still a little tired from our fun-filled weekend. Friday night was low key at our house because Danny was going to run his very first half-marathon on Saturday morning. He woke up around 4:15am on Saturday, and he woke me up around 5:00am. We got to the race right around 5:45am.  He was so excited!

This was right before the race - he was about to start lining up.
Out of nearly 1,000 runners, Danny finished in the top 100! He ran 13.1 miles in 2 hours and 6 minutes. I was SO proud of him! For some reason I was really emotional, and I had been standing in the hot sun at the finish line for nearly an hour, and when I saw him cross the finish line I started crying. I was just so happy for him because I knew he had been training so hard for this.
Sitting down after the race - he was exhausted! It was so hot [and humid] outside. It was probably around 90 degrees. Congratulations, Hubby!!!
We went home around 9:30am and just laid around and watched the World Cup the rest of the day. We were having a party at our house that night, so we started cleaning up the house and getting everything ready. It was a "backyard BBQ" party, so we setup the patio and had snacks out for everybody.

This is a picture I took with my phone later in the night. There were probably about 20 people at our house. It was so fun! We invited all the neighbors on our cul-de-sac and I think everyone enjoyed themselves.
So here is the funny part: I went to the grocery store on Saturday to get all the food/supplies for the party. I got hamburger meat, ground turkey, lettuce, tomatoes, corn, etc. Later that night when the food was off the grill and everyone was getting ready to eat I started to put all the toppings out. I put out sliced tomatoes, ketchup, mustard, cheese, lettuce, buns and mayo. Well, when Danny was making his burger he put on all the toppings and took a bite. He immediately spit out his bite and looked down at the lettuce...which wasn't lettuce at all. I bought CABBAGE at the grocery store and thought it was lettuce! Everyone started dying out laughing, and our neighbors said they didn't want to say anything because they thought that maybe we just liked RAW cabbage on our burgers! I was so embarrassed but it was also really funny.

Overall, it was a great weekend. Thanks everyone for coming!
