Well as expected, Remington and I had a great trip to Texas.
I got to see many great friends, run a 5k, visit my old work, enjoy a nice happy hour and do some shopping at one of my favorite places, Nordstrom Rack.
The first big event of the weekend was the Race for the Cure 5k. There were over 25,000 people who signed up. I don't typically like to start my days at 5 o'clock in the morning, but it was well worth it in the end. We all had a great time!
One of the things I loved about this particular 5k is that it's more than just a race, it's a fight. A fight for health, a fight for love, a fight for victory. It was very emotional to see all of those who were being remembered or celebrated. This particular sign brought a tear to my eye.
As you can see, there were so many people that it took awhile to even get to the start line (which you can barely see in the distance).

Next up was football and wine night at the Lopez's. And I had a to get a picture with the cutest little Bama fan I know, Ms. Gabbi :)
All of us girls in our team shirts.
Remington did so well on the trip. He slept for the majority of the ride on the way there and back. He did so in various positions...many of which I documented for your viewing pleasure.
Overall, it was a wonderful weekend! I look forward to visiting again soon with Jon in tow!
