A Flying by the Seat of Our Pants Weekend

Morning, kit kats. How you feeling this DST Monday? I'm dragging but slogging through the day. It is going to be so nice having more sunshine in the evening, I can't wait for the extra few hours of sun. This weekend was quite busy as Le Husband and I threw a quick weekend trip together to watch his college baseball team play. We had a great time together even though there were a few curve balls and I'm glad everything worked out as well as it did. 

This weekend I…

… reveled in the gorgeous weather with the sunroof open on my drive home from work. 

… scrambled home to meet le Husband as we drove out west to watch his college team play at Radford.

… was extremely lucky in missing traffic, PTL.

… decided to stop at Chick Fil-A for dinner and yes, I drank another milkshake. #oops

… flew by the seat of our pants when we realized all of the hotels in Radford were booked due to a tournament. Cheers to using Marriott points and finding a fabulous hotel 30 minutes away. #ilovekingbeds

… woke up super early to headed out on a four mile hike in the Appalachian mountains. 

… enjoyed the early morning birds and scenery on Dragon's Tooth. 

… was blown away by the beauty of Appalachia. #ilovehiking.

… swiped this picture of my honey at the peak of the mountain. #lovehimso

… stopped at the best barbecue place in Virginia and housed a whole chicken. #Lehusbandhelped

… got squirreled at the fun store next to the restaurant and bought my FABULOUS new felt hat!

… finally made it to the field to watch the flashes win 10-9. #funending #waytokeepitinteresting

… loved hanging out in the sun with my best guy.

… checked into another hotel closer to the team and changed to meet up with a former teammate of Le Husband.

… ate a fantastic dinner while listening to baseball boys talk about the past and baseball. #sonotsoccer

… passed out after a super long day full of fun. 

… slept in before getting up and heading to the field for an earlier than anticipated start due to weather. 

… talked with coaches, grabbed a snack and then watch the Flashes take it to the Highlanders. 

… walked away in the fifth inning due to the rain and my six pm soccer game.

… stopped at the bbq place for lunch then drove four hours in the rain to make it to my game on time. 

… played in my LAST INDOOR GAME with my team. It was the ending of a seven year era and was a bit bittersweet. Thankfully we won even though I didn't play my best game and it was fun celebrating with my teammates.  Le Husband and my parents came to watch me play and it was kind of surreal when it was all over. #hasitreallybeensevenyears

… went out to dinner with teammates, drank a HORRIBLE glass of wine and toasted a great indoor career.

… came home, unpacked, prepped my BODYPUMP list and finished my blog posts for today. 

I hope y'all have a great Monday, please send me some good vibes as I'm running on very little sleep due to our trip and DST. Five am is early enough, but when it feels like four am, WOOF! Make the most of the day you've been given, friends!  See you tomorrow with a fitness post.

You were almost in my neck of the woods if you were in Radford/Roanoke area! I'm about 2 1/2 hours south of that. & I definitely agree we have the most beautiful mountains ;) Glad you had a fun trip!

LMW said...

so many endings will be coming this month, but that means so much closer to new beginnings. I also wondered where you went when I got that text photo. Now it makes sense. And the BBQ? yummers.

Looks like a great but busy weekend! Right there with you on loving more evening sun, but I am feeling it today! This morning was a disaster, but after getting to work and realizing everyone else was late, it was all good. Yumm, now I was chic-fil-a! Beautifully Candid

Driving with the sunroof open equals instant happy! That hike looks amazing! I am heading to the mountains for memorial day and cannot wait! Congrats on 7 years of hard work and going out a winner!

Emily said...

Sounds like a super busy weekend!! Spontaneous weekend trips are always fun. I actually like staying in hotels once the bed is comfy. The BBQ place pretty fantastic too.

Erin LFF said...

There's nothing like that first time you get to crack open the sunroof for the season! :) LOVE IT! And nothing like a king bed either- we were just spoiled on vacation all last week with one haha!

Shelby | Recent Somethings said...

Ugh DST... I hear ya! Waking up in the dark was killer this morning! What fabulous BBQ you had; making this Southerner jealous, girl! Love, love the new hat. This is totally sun roof weather and I'm so bummed my current car doesn't have one.

The time change has been so rough on me, too! I've been struggling all day today and yesterday. But I hate to complain too much because I'm loving the fact that it's light out until 7:30 now! Summer is ON THE WAY!

Laura Marie Keenan said...

Your hike looks amazing! And yay for an open sun roof!!!

Love the spur of the moment trip... and that hotel room sure does look inviting and warm... particularly when all the other pictures look cold and damp!!! Still worth the adventure. ;)
