Now, as usual, you do not have to do any kind of monthly recap, but I decided I wanted to start doing these this year and then Gretch and I did this link up, so it was like fate.
I know these posts might not be the most exciting posts to read, but since I don't ever do weekend recaps, it's the best way for me to record memories, and it's my blog, so...... Just kidding. Let's see what I did in April.
My girlfriends and I used to do brunch pretty regularly but its been a long time, and the last time we all got together was for my birthday dinner, so it was much needed. There was a lot of food involved, and a mimosa or two.
Derby is a big deal in Louisville, and the 'Fest-A-Ville' starts with Thunder over Louisville. People always talk about thunder but I had never been. It can get a bit crazy and being surrounded by drunk people all day is not 100% my idea of fun, so I decided to have a look and see if there were any cheap, fun, stable ways to see thunder. I say stable as opposed to just driving downtown super early and pulling up a piece of grass. We went to a baseball game, and the tickets include seats (duh), but you can see the air show, as well as there is a concert later and you can view the fireworks. The fireworks don't start until 9:30pm though, and we got to the baseball game around 1:30 or so, I think.
In between the game and concert, we walked around the waterfront (where KC did a bunch of pull ups after a few beers and got a free Marine water bottle) where they have lots of booths, food and rides. A few fights broke out and it was just a bit much so we decided to go home and out to dinner instead, which was fine by me.
It was a lot of fun, a very.. well, relaxing way to enjoy something that's not so relaxing, if that makes sense. We would do it again, but we would just know that we wouldn't count on making it to the fireworks, it's a long day!
Got my first Golden Tote..
Went to the dentist.. the best part of which is waiting room reading time.
Ended the month with the KY Derby Half, my first half marathon in over a year. It rained, but it wasn't that horrible. I ate a lot of food afterwards to make up for it.
PSA: Dairy Queen discontinued the snickers blizzard, which I am super not okay with. It's probably good though, because I could eat a snickers blizzard every day.
and as usual, a bunch of cat photos:
There is a duplicate photo of Millie but I don't care enough to recreate the collages. My cat is cute enough for a duplicate, mmkay?
Adventures in reading with cats...
April had a lot going on, but May is going to be a bit crazy. Oaks tomorrow, a bachelorette party, a concert... Well, writing it out like that it doesn't sound that crazy, but to have something on every weekend is not normal for me, so it's crazy, okay?
