Best Weekend Ever!

Seriously, it doesn't get much better.

Friday morning, my friend Kim and I headed out of Yuma for a much needed girls' weekend. We stopped to shop in Phoenix en route to Tucson.

And shop I did. *Cha Ching* I am surprised that my credit card didn't melt. (And also that my husband didn't change the locks and banish me from the family.)

We arrived in Tucson Friday evening to this:

JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort. Gorgeous. Go big or go back to Yuma, kwim?

Saturday = more shopping

I need to mention that we have NO mall here in Yuma. It's bare bones. We have the basics + a Dillards,  which typically caters to the Snowbird population and their fashion sense.

Pretty sure you can purchase this at our Dillards.

Sunday morning... this happened:

Arizona Distance Classic: Half Marathon, Quarter Marathon (huh?), and 5K

And this was the result:

 Awkward water bottle pose, but awesome finish.
1:38:41... 3rd in AG, 13th woman 

I DID IT!!!!

On the drive home, KY ended up beating Baylor, so now it's:

This KY girl can't wait for the FINAL FOUR game between her beloved Wildcats and the Cardinals. This rivalry is HUGE! GO CATS!!!!

Full race report to follow. So much to talk about... Stay tuned!
