Last week was a busy week leading up to a very busy weekend. I worked M,T,W, F at the bank. Thursday I had off, but had a ton of errands to run, plus pickup Parker's Tux for prom. Friday worked at the bank all day and then got ready to go shake my bootie over at the Raccoon Music Hall.
The Rumbles was the band that was playing there. The Rumbles only come to Raccoon Music Hall once a year.
We had an awesome time at the Raccoon Music Hall. We all danced our hearts out. It was sad to hear that this would be the last time they would be playing at the Raccoon Music Hall. They have decided to call it quits. SO SAD. Where am I going to shake my bootie now. Ended up being a pretty late night. Haven't had a late night for a long time.

Saturday morning got up around 6am to get ready to go to work at the bank. When I got off at the bank, I was suppose to meet Mac at Marc Stephens Hair Salon. She was getting her hair put up for prom. I was so excited to get to spend time with the girls while they all got their hair and makeup done. I had so much fun. When the hair and makeup were done we went to Mac's house to take some prom pictures.

Parker so wanted to wear his cowboy hat to the prom, but Mac really didn't want him to. So he compromised and took some pictures with it on before the prom. I think he look very handsome in that cowboy hat. HE'S JUST A COUNTRY BOY.
After pictures at Mac's, all the girls were meeting up at Morgan's house for group pictures. Got some awesome group pictures.
Group pictures done, now they are off to Gino's for supper. While they were at supper, we all decided to go have supper to kill time till the Promenade.

After supper we headed on over to the school to watch the Promenade. Their was so many gorgeous dresses, not having any girls I don't get to enjoy all the girly things, so this was so much fun for me. I love fashion. After the Promenade at Mac's school they rush over to Parker's school to do his Promenade. Parker's school is a little different than Mac's school in that all the kids drive up to the red carpet and than get out of the vehicle and walk up the red carpet. They have parking attendant that park the kids car for them. You never know what some kids are going to drive up in. When my oldest boy had his senior prom he wanted to use his dad's new John Deere Tractor. His date was all for that. So Parker wanted to keep the tradition going, so he decided to drive his dad's John Deere Combine, his date was alitte worried about getting out and down the ladder in her shoes and dress. Mac did awesome. You never know what you will see the kids driving up in our Promenade.

Since, I had so much going on Friday and Saturday, We decided to do our long run on Sunday. I really wasn't wanting to do that, but didn't have much of a choice. So I dragged my butt out of bed at 5am to get ready to go run. When I stepped outside to see how cold it was, I was not happy. It wasn't just cold it was also windy.
Not only did I not want to do this long run, I didn't eat right or hydrate right Friday or Saturday. My own fault, but I was so busy I wasn't really thinking about the long run till Sunday morning when I dragged my butt out of bed. Needless to say those 18 miles kind of sucked. We got the 18 miles in, but it was not pretty. It started to mist just as we're finishing up. All I wanted to do was go home take a hot shower and go back to bed. When I got home it was close to lunch time so I knew I needed to get the guys something for lunch, so turned the oven on and baked up some chicken strips and fries. They like gravy to put over their chicken strips so I whipped up some gravy. I set it out on the table and told them I was going to bed to take a nap. When I woke up, they were all napping. We also were suppose to go to a Birthday party at 2pm, but the little girl got sick, so they cancelled it. You don't know how happy that made me. They rescheduled the Birthday party for next Sunday.
This Saturday I'm running the Drake Relay Off Road Half Marathon. I've ran several 20k and several marathons, but never a half marathon. I'm kind of getting excited to run this race. It has some hills, which I hate,but I welcome the challenge.
How do you deal with busy weekends?
Are you racing this weekend?
