Some cake and a very long concert

I am so glad I'm on 'Spring Break' this week. I need it to recover from my weekend!

Friday night my family got together at my twinnie's house for dinner.
I carb loaded for my half marathon Saturday, by eating a couple salads. Ok, I guess that's not carb loading.
But I did have a couple bites of the amazing chocolate buttercream birthday cake she made for my niece's birthday.

I mean look at this! Her talent is incredible.

It was very hard to stop at a couple bites, but I managed somehow

Gorgeous sunset in her back yard

Saturday I ran my half marathon. (Recap tomorrow)

Then Sunday we took the Youth Group to Winter Jam. Stood in line for 2 1/2 hours, then went into the concert, which lasted 5 hours. 5 hours, people! Gahhhh.
 It was fun, it was just very long. I got home about 1 a.m.

Totally random, but I was so excited to see watermelon's in the store again. My favorite fruit ever!
Until I saw the price....since when is watermelon $7??? Seriously?

And that was my weekend! Tell me about yours.

What's your favorite fruit?



  1. That cake looks amazing! Your sister is very talented! Can't wait to hear about your race. Enjoy your spring break! Mine was last week, and it was so nice to have that time off.

    1. She really is! I hope this Spring break week goes very slowly!

  2. Oh wow - I don't think I could stop at a couple bites with that cake ... good for you! Have you seen or tried the thing where they cut a hole in a watermelon and stick an electric beater into it to make a watermelon slushie? I could see me making a huge mess with it but I might try that this year. And ... I'm sad I missed out on Winter Jam ... but then again, 5 hours - wow! I would definitely be dragging!

  3. Watermelon is my FAVORITE fruit. I love it after a run on a hot day...but really...anytime!! :-D So yummy!!

    The cake looks amazing. I normally don't get to eat cakes due to food allergies, and it makes me sad. Your willpower is amazing.

    Salad = fiber. I can't do salad before a race...bad things happen with the tummy. I can't wait to read your recap. I've never heard a bad thing about RTB!!

    1. It's my favorite fruit too. I once ate almost a whole one, in one setting. I learned the hard way never to do that again! ;)
      Thankfully I had no tummy issues at all with my salads.

  4. Yeah - someone asked me to volunteer at that concert & I knew it would be long - especially on a Sunday night. Kuddos for you for taking the kids to see it. Thank goodness its Spring Break!

    THAT CAKE - that is gorgeous! I want that for my birthday! :)

    I cant stand the price of fruits & veggies off season. You know my hate of buying blueberries for $10 - but I did... UGH! Watermelons will be cheap in just a month or two. Hang in there!

    Cant wait to read your recap!!!

  5. That price is outrageous for Watermelons. Yikes!
    Oh my gosh that cake looks too pretty to eat, of course I'd love to dig in, YUM. Wow she is talented to design cakes like that!

  6. I know there will be many difficulties and challenges but I am determined to do it. If it does not succeed then it will be a lesson for me as well
