THAT’S How Maryland Does.

…Remember when I said I have a problem.. andΒ  the only prescription is more Wedding Crashers quotes? That was my title inspiration. πŸ˜‰

My weekend in Maryland was a great one, save for a very sick day on Sunday. I spent the day in bed and ended up driving home on Monday. Ga-ross.

I went to Maryland, as usual, to stay with Anastasia, and to attend Jason’s goodbye celebration. Cue the tears; Jason moved to Kentucky. Waaah!

Before a nice Thursday morning sweat session at the gym (my physical therapist allowed me to do a SLOW 6 miles to gear me up for the joke that will be our Williamsburg half marathon this weekend), Anastasia and I bounced on over to Target to look for some matching race attire (since we are seven years old and must always be running twins)

Yeah… gems.

Speaking of gems, check out the shorts we will be wearing for THIS half marathon.

We figured since “my life” got in the way of training for this half (along with my shin… and Anastasia’s new job), we need outfits that make it very clear that this is a fun run for us. πŸ˜‰

…Mission accomplished, I think.

Then it was time for some D.C. fun!

Katie worked with me last summer… and she broke my heart when she moved away from Virginia Beach. You may remember our last fun times in D.C. last time she met us out on the town.

Katie and her “tall man” boyfriend are pretty goshdarn adorable, are they not?

You’d think it’d be easier to capture a picture with both the tall man and some pretty tall girls. It’s not. Poor you, Katie, for being half cut out of every picture so you can fit Andy’s tall head in there.

“Maybe if we look really happy and point at him he won’t move!”

Lots of new friends and photobombs.

And pretty new shirts to show off (thank you, Dana and Abby).

THEN, after my sicky day on Sunday, on my drive home on Monday I realized I was passing right by where my good friend Kristin from middle/high school now lives.


I was SO excited to see her. She was one of my closest friends growing up in New Jersey, and I haven’t even seen her since she got married and had a baby (crappy friend award?)!

and from middle school to prom, I have so many memories with her. πŸ™‚


Meet Chase Michael.

Yes, he’s named after Chase Utley, and yes, that fact along with his big baby blues make him my new boyfriend.

AND LOOK. I was even gracious enough to take a “taking care of a baby is tough stuff” picture for you!

Seriously. I did my hair like that on purpose. Just for you.

So, Anastasia, Jason, Katie, and Kristin, thank you for yet another spectacular weekend on the road.

My next order of business this week? Knock out 15 bLyss Designs glasses, get my shin in gear to jog 13.1 miles on Sunday, and uhhh… be awesome.

Since my crazy weekend/sick day has left me out of the loop with EVERYONE, hit me with some highlights of your weekend, pretty please.
