My Weekend According To My iPhone

An extended happy hour with my favorite wine-o Kaila kicked off this weekend.  We drank our way through Hock Farm, Ella and Firestone.  I was feeling celebratory, but I can't share why just yet...  Celebrate we did!  (Thanks for the ride Mr. Goddard)  Saturday was a day of recovery and pampering with Simone.  Two hours of gossip and catchup over pedicures and manicures.  After all that fun rested and recouped until Sunday evening.  Now it's back to work for me - I'm not one of you lucky people whose off today and I'm wondering if the next two weeks can possibly top the last.

I love those unexpected weekends where you don't really anticipate much and then it takes a turn towards great fun with friends.  :)  I had such a good time at Sacramento's Farm to Fork Festival and I ran into tons of people I know.  Those who helped put it together did a fantastic job!  Had another lazy Sunday with lots of naps and Property Brothers - I'm addicted to that show.  Monday still came too soon, but now I'm focusing on this weekend's trip to Dillon's Beach.  Yay!

A KIND-A-Awesome 5k!

Unless you've been living under a rock then you've probably heard of the happiest 5k on the planet - The Color Run.  This awesome run/walk where you sprayed with a rainbow of colors and at the end you like like a piece of funfetti cake!

I'd always wanted to participate, but it was one of those things where I just really never pulled it together.  When a representative of KIND snacks contacted me about participating on behalf of their brand it was exactly the incentive I needed.  Someone was asking me to tweet and instagram?  YES.

You can even see here how diligent I am - stopping in the middle to snap the most perfect Instagram photo.

My team had a really fun time, just as we always do!  The funny thing was that I kept somehow missing the color.  Each section we walked through I came out virtually clean, the people around me were getting doused and it seemed like no one wanted to spray me!

Even I'm shocked that I made it through this without hardly a touch of blue on me!

That clean white shirt didn't last though, as soon as we rounded the corner to the finish line.  People (myself included) were throwing their packets of color in the air, in my hair and just about everywhere else.  It. Was. AWESOME!

Thank you so much to Kristi and KIND for the AWESOME experience at the Happiest 5k on the Planet!  I can't wait until next year.
