It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve shared an InstaFriday post. So I’ve got some catching up to do.
I spent a lovely weekend in Baltimore 2 weeks ago. It was a great time with friends, new and old. There was much wine consumed, lots of talking and mingling, and my friend/hotel roommate Elaine and I even managed to get in a workout on Saturday morning. This was the view from the hotel gym. Not too bad!
If you listen to the Undisclosed Podcast then you’ll recognize these 2, Colin Miller and Susan Simpson. I was in Baltimore for A Night for Justice, a fundraising gala for Adnan Syed and the Undisclosed Podcast (and their quest to work on wrongful conviction cases). This happened to be a question/answer panel with the Undisclosed team as well as Bob Ruff, from Truth & Justice (Podcast).
It was great to see Rabia again and get to spend some time with her over the weekend. Even though there wasn’t much time to spend because things were crazy busy. So glad to call her a friend.
The weather last week was amazing… in the 60’s, in March. WHAT? I could not help but break out the Birks and soak up some sun. Of course the temps didn’t stick around long.
Oh yeah… we’ve slowly been making our way through House of Cards. Slowly, because it’s a whole ‘nother year until the next season and that KILLS me. Love this show, so very much.
Brookelyn had yet another volleyball tournament last weekend and has her final one this weekend. It’s been a good season.
We had a fun surprise on Monday night! Our babysitter from California had been in Chicago visiting her boyfriend (who’s in the military and lives on base), her flight was cancelled and she couldn’t leave Chicago until Tuesday, leaving her stranded because of her boyfriend living on base. So, she got a ride halfway to Milwaukee and I went to pick her. She came home and surprised the heck out of Brookelyn. It was awesome! None of us had seen her for 3 years, so it was nice to have a little visit. She stayed the night and after the gym in the morning we took her to the airport. We can’t wait for Kyra to come back and hang out in Milwaukee next time!
Matt and I celebrated 13 years of marriage this week. I’m so lucky to get to do life with this guy. Can’t imagine having anyone else by my side from day to day.
Another pic from my trip to Baltimore. Rabia, her daughter and my friend Elaine. by this point we were all exhausted from an insanely busy weekend. But, so much fun was had. It was such a wonderful time and I’m so thankful that I was able to make the trip!
We’ve got a weekend of family and volleyball coming up and I can’t wait. What are your plans?
