We lost in softball, but at least it was to the same team as before.

Tuesday--dance class


Thursday--1 mile in 10:59 Liz's Starbucks Birthday run.

Kyle was in town so he and Kory could go to Universal during the day so we all went out to dinner later.


Kory and I had date night at Disney Springs.  We had dinner at Portobello then got drinks at Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar.


I went to a baby shower for Nicola during the day.


And then a birthday party for Carla at night.

Weekly Recap- April 4-17, 2016

Last week I slacked on doing a post since I'm taking time off of running because of my ankle so it was a boring week.  But this week was an exciting week full of a half marathon and signing the contract to build a house!

April 4- 10, 2016

Monday- softball

We won again.

Tuesday--dance class.

After dance, Chelsea and I hit up the Flower & Garden Festival.

This time I visited the Joffrey's vendor by Disney Traders for the Tiki Torch--frozen passion fruit thrills with juicy sweet flavors, a hint of tartness, blended with Grey Goose Vodka.  And while sipping that, we walked over to Bauernmarkt: Farmer's Market in Germany to get the Chicken Fricassee with Green Asparagus and Peas served with Uncle Ben's Rice Pilaf.



Kim & Kyle were in town so the four of us had dinner at Whispering Canyon Cafe and then enjoyed drinks at Trader Sam's.


The four of use had dinner at Bahama Breeze and then went to my happy place--Jellyrolls.


My brother and Lindsay were town for a few hours so the six of us went to lunch at BJ's Brewhouse.  Both Kyle & Kim, and Steven & Lindsay have just bought/built new houses so our lunch revolved around house talk!  It was so nice to have both sides of the family together!


I worked in Tour Guide at the ride during the day.

April 11-17, 2016


We won and then headed to a post-game dinner at Ale House.

Tuesday--dance class

After dance class, Chelsea and I headed back into the Flower & Garden Festival.

This time we went to Urban Farm Eats.  I got the Seared Pork Tenderloin with Mushroom Ragout, Spring Vegetables and Marble Potatoes along with Avive Natural Peach Sparkling Wine from France.



We went to the expo for the Star Wars Half Marathon.  I'm not a Star Wars fan so I think this was the least amount of money I've ever spent at an expo!  All I bought was a gold Sweatyband for my costume, and then the I Did It shirt and Sweatyband that I always get.


We signed the contract to build a new house!!  We've been looking for 5 years and it's finally done! (well, we have to wait for the house to be built, but you know what I mean!)  I'm so excited!  Hopefully we'll be moved in by the end of September!

To celebrate, we brought Bella with us out to dinner at Sea Dog.  Kelly and Ron bought their puppies up to meet us.


Kory and I went to see Allegiant and then had dinner at Pizza@Artegon.  I love creating my own pizza with as many cheese toppings as they have!

Sunday--Star Wars Half Marathon 13.30 miles in 2:33:38  Mile 1: 9:37, Mile 2: 9:43, Mile 3: 9:50, Mile 4: 10:48, Mile 5: 12:35, Mile 6: 12:28, Mile 7: 11:56, Mile 8: 12:19, Mile 9: 12:22, Mile 10: 11:36, Mile 12: 12:38, Mile 13: 11:25, Mile 13-13.30: 9:42, Average Pace: 11:33

Weekly Recap- March 28-April 3, 2016


Softball had a bye so the team had a little outing to watch the Braves Spring Training game.

Tuesday--dance class

It was belly dancing night.  I've learned that while I might be pretty okay at Irish Step Dancing, last week (latin dancing) and this week showed me that I have absolutely no hip action!


We had portfolio night at school.  It was a looong day!


I took Faith over to see the house we liked and to take more pictures.

Then Kory and I headed to the Studios.  We ate dinner at the Hollywood Brown Derby out on their new patio bar.  Then we headed over to the Streets of America to say goodbye since it's being demolished.  Sigh.  I'm not happy about the changes.  The park will no longer be what it was created to be.  It makes me sad.

Then we watched the Star Wars fireworks before they change it up.  I'm not a Star Wars fan but it was neat to see them over my ride and the actual fireworks were pretty cool.


We had dinner then took Bella to Jeremiah's Italian Ice.  She even got a pup cup!


Kory and I went to go ask some more questions about the house and ask about how to go about signing the contract.  Only to find out that it had sold that morning.  I was really upset.  Thankfully the sales guy emailed me a few hours later with an even better floor plan.  While it would unfortunately mean having to wait another 6 or so months, it will be exciting to watch our house built from the ground up.  We're hoping to get that approved and sign a contract!

We headed to out to run errands and ate at Zaxbys.

Sunday--EA Sports Riverside Dash 15k 9.38 miles in 1:43:00 Great time running with friends!! Mile 1: 10:36, Mile 2: 11:56, Mile 3: 11:35, Mile 4: 11:16, Mile 5: 11:06, Mile 6: 10:28, Mile 7: 11:00, Mile 8: 10:54, Mile 9: 10:35, Mile 9-9.38: 10:20, Average Pace: 11:00

I went to one of my first grader's birthday parties and then headed to Epcot to meet friends at the Flower and Garden Festival.
