Whiskey Run

After having a blast at Paul & Sabrina's wedding last night, I got up early this morning to run my 'long run' that I skipped yesterday. I was feeling pretty good until about mile 4, when I started to burp whiskey. As much as I love Jack Daniels on the way down, it is much less fun the next morning :)

However, in a weird way, it kept me motivated to finish the run and get home. Since I planned out a large loop route, all I wanted to do was finish the loop and head home faster to get this gross taste out of my mouth! So, the Jack actually helped my run - I would have never thought of that. I don't think I'll incorporate this into my training plan too much though.

America's Rockin' Roller Coast!

Pat and I had a little lazy Sunday planned, including finishing up our registry at Bed, Bath & Beyond. However, after looking at the weather and being so excited to actually have a day off together, we hit the road to Sandusky for our first trip to Cedar Point of the year.

The most exciting news is that we are now proud season pass holders! We can go whenever we want now!! And, it's only two hours from our house :) We had so much fun and there were no lines! We were able to ride the Millenium Force 4 times in under an hour!! Best trip ever!

You Got the Right Stuff, Baby!

Yeah, that's right, my sisters and I saw NKOTB! This was hands-down the best concert I've ever been to! (keep in mind I've only been to 2, maybe 3 concerts in my life) We spent the evening in Windsor and had a blast! Yummy dinner, beautiful river walk and gorgeous casino. I've never been in a casino before that wasn't disgusting. The boats in Baton Rouge, a few in Vegas and the Detroit Casinos are just gross! All full of smoke and dirty looking. But, Caesar's Windsor was absolutely GORGEOUS! If I ever find myself wanting to gamble, I'd certainly cross thr border.

The concert was held in the collisseum and it was awesome! The New Kids look just like they did when I was a kid. So hot and buff! They put on a really good show and we had a blast! At one point, Joey came out in a tux with tails, with no shirt on! He was so ripped and now I know I was right in having a crush on him when I was a kid :)

What a great girls night out!
