No, the baby shower wasn’t for me. My niece (my brother’s daughter) is expecting her first child in July. We had a small baby shower for her on Saturday. I was in charge of the games and I was quite nervous because I was afraid that the guests wouldn’t like them. 🙂
We only had 1.5 hours for games which actually did not leave that much time (the shower was from 2:30-6:30 pm with dinner being at 4pm). That was OK. There were 5 games/activites and it seemed like everyone had fun.
She doesn’t have a name yet but we helped her out with some suggestions!
This week was also my twice a year haircut! My hair is flat straight and there isn’t much I can do with it. I will confess that sometimes I am lazy about getting a haircut. I think one time I waited almost a year for a haircut! My hair was really long. This time I just wanted to cut 3 inches off. The stylist asked me if I wanted layers. At first I wasn’t sure but then told her to go ahead. I was nervous but I was pleased with the results. I do like it!
This week’s run were great! Since I am on Spring Break, I loved not having to be out there very early in the morning. I was able to run once the sun was out and didn’t need any reflective gear. The weather has been OK but I want it to be warm enough to wear shorts and a tank top.
Sunday’s run felt tough. The workout was 3 miles warmup and 3 miles at 10:43 pace. The last time I ran 6 miles or more was on February 3rd. I am surprised that I did pretty good. I will admit that I did have to stop a few times because the pace felt hard. I remember years ago when it was “easier” to run a 10:30 pace and now I am struggling. I have a half marathon on the 28th and my goal is just to finish it and complete a half in another state.
Spring Break is over and it is back to work tomorrow. No, I am not ready to go back. One more day please.
Linking up with Kim and Deborah for the Weekly Run Down.
