I thought January was going to be a quiet month but it was another crazy weekend! On Friday, my Grandly moved into to a nursing home. I was very sad that she needed to go there but she joked that maybe she’ll meet a boyfriend :) and it sounds like she’s actually enjoying all of the activities that they offer, and the food! I am looking forward to going to see her this week.
The Big Big Bennie-Fit on Saturday night was a lot of fun and a big success! Nelson County Life shared some great photos HERE. The place was packed! It was really cool to see so many people coming together to help out Bennie & his family!
Chris reminded me that Saturday was also the 3 year anniversary of the first time we met. Awww… So we went to Fry’s Spring Station for a little celebration on the way to the Bennie-fit. I had been wanting to try it for a while and it was really good! It was some of the best wood-fired pizza I’ve had recently…except for from the back of the Dogtown truck, of course!
Today I took a little road trip to Culpeper to meet up with some of my JMU friends! Random location but it’s pretty much central to all of us so we thought we’d check it out. We had lunch, checked out some of the cute little downtown shops and then ended the day with a great cupcake! There were really 5 of us there + Sarah’s daughter, Camryn but I only got a photo of Darce, Danielle and I. It’s so nice that we are all so close 15 years later! 15 years…ouch!
Sadly, while I was road-tripping, Chris called to tell me that our favorite chicken, Arlene, was killed by the neighbors dog. I never thought I’d be so sad over a chicken. I guess these two really did become more like pets. We will miss you, Arlene!
Tonight I went to my second yoga class at Bend Yoga- where yogi’s are born :) I really enjoyed it but also learned that my arms have gotten pretty weak. It was definitely motivation to keep doing yoga and to get back to the gym. I’m planning to go to the ‘Mamaste’ class every Thursday and hopefully most Saturdays too. If you’re having a baby or already have one, you should check it out!
The other big thing coming up this week is The Big Big Bennie-Fit! Bennie is a local musician and a great guy. On Saturday there is a benefit at Fry’s Springs Beach Club from 6pm-1am to help with a pile of medical bills that he has from a recent hospital stay. Tickets are only $20 at the door and a while list of great bands are playing…check out the website for details! I hope to see all of you there! Here are a couple of photos that I love of Bennie at our wedding. played the cocktail hour but stayed late and ended up singing with the band!
