Weekend Recap: Trophy, Explosion, and Moving

I started my weekend off really exciting….I got to 60% of the way through the Bible Friday morning!  I LOVE that my app keeps track of the % you have read…its really motivating.

We had a food day at work, which means the diet was thrown out the window. Ooops! After a good day at work, I went to Tyler’s shop to see the progress of moving out…and they were so empty!  It was kind of sad to see the shop (that we’ve worked so hard on for 4 years) empty.  We spent a good part of the weekend moving stuff to our house (and HELP! It’s overtaking my house!)

We ate dinner at Patron with the family Friday evening, and then came home and crashed after all that moving.

Saturday morning, I headed from my small town to an even smaller town nearby for a Relay for Life 5K.  My dad and SIL have had cancer, so Relay for Life is close to my heart.  It was a VERY tiny event…with homemade race bibs!

I got all suited up and ran the race.  It was SUPER cold (30 degrees and spitting snow!), but I ran it. 

The funniest thing was that there were only 40 people registered…and because of the cold…only about half of those showed up.  And most of them were walkers.  So I won a 2nd place female trophy! ha!  But I’m proud of that trophy because I branched out to run this by myself….ran it (even in the cold!) and finished. Boom.

I came home, showered, ate breakfast…and ran out to do some errands.  I needed new base, so I went to Ulta.  Well, everyone working there was busy (and being totally unhelpful) so they told me that I was welcome to test the foundation myself, and she showed me the sponges.  Well, the bottle was broken and it literally exploded ALL over me.  On my shirt, in my hair, and on my purse.

They just stood there looking at me.  I was REALLY calm, saying…”It’s ok…” but their answer was “You can go to the salon and rinse out your shirt.”  Um yeah, because a soaking wet, stained shirt is better than a stained shirt.  I think I’ll pass.  They didn’t even offer me a discount or anything!  Boo, Ulta!

Sunday was a SUPER full day.

I had a great Life Group lesson…and then church was taught by Charles Lowery.  He was AMAZING.  He talked about conquering fear in life.  It was wonderful.  So wonderful, that we came back to hear his other two lessons after Zumba.

I taught my last Zumba Toning class of this session…and it was awesome.  Like 25-30 people showed up!  So thankful!

Then after, we went back to church to hear Dr. Lowery speak about parenting.  Sure, we don’t have kids (yet) but hopefully someday we will…so we wanted to hear his message. It was funny, because some people were like “Are you expecting?” since we were there. ha!

Then the evening service was about marriage.  His message was very similar to this.  Check it out and be blessed!

I hope you had a great weekend, too!


  1. That is awesone that you get the trophy!!! BOOO Ulta!!

  2. Boo Ulta for sure, that’s horrible!

  3. So proud of you for your trophy and finishing the race strong! Especially in cold weather! Cause knowing me, I’d have stayed home in my warm bed! Such dedication on your part! Yay Britt!

    And yes, boo Ulta. I wish I could say ours here in Tyler has better customer service, but it doesn’t. They’re always totally unhelpful. I will usually try and shop at Sephora first before giving my money to them.

  4. I admire you for running in the cold! You deserve that trophy!! And Ulta DOES always have awful customer service.

  5. Nice, you had an awesome and productive weekend. Good job for the trophy.. Boo for ULTA.

  6. WTG On your 5K and getting a medal!!
