Well, just kidding. I'm not that fast, but it seemed pretty clever since I finished the Aramco Houston half marathon this past Sunday! But before I get to that, we'll start off with Friday. I landed in Houston around 8pm and was lucky enough to have one of my very best friends Nicole, waiting for me at baggage claim. We then went to pick up Cliff and headed to BJ's in Sugar Land for a much needed and very late dinner. Anyone who knows me well knows how hungry I get and that when I'm hungry I must eat right then and there. Well, we didn't even get to BJ's until around 9:15pm which was like 10:15pm to me since I'm now on east coast time and I barely even complained! I must say I was quite proud of myself. After dinner, Nikki and Cliff dropped me off at my parents where I got to spend hour or so with Mom and Dad talking their ears off, of course.
On Saturday, my wonderful in-laws, Jody and Phil, came to Sugar Land to see me! I was so excited to see them and even more excited that they came specifically to see me since I was in town :) I am so blessed with two amazing families. We then went into downtown to meeting up with Julie and her brother and sister-in-law, Jake and Danielle, for lunch. We went to a little Italian place called Pronto on Montrose to get some yummy carbs before the race. After lunch Jody and Phil headed towards Katy to see Jody's mom while the rest of us went to the race expo. Julie and I wandered around for quite a while while Jake and Danielle went to pick up Julie's other brother Peter. Once we were tired of picking up free stuff at the expo, we went for a walk around Discovery Green Park. Here are some pics:
It was an amazing weekend full of loved ones and I couldn't have been happier. I'm looking forward to my next trip back to Texas in just one week! I'll be back for work this time around, but there is always room for play!
More pictures of Maggie and this crazy weather up north to come. Until next time...
With love and God bless,
Amy, JP and Maggie
