Last week I started training for a half marathon, and let me tell you I have stuck with it. The ONLY day that I didn't run was Saturday and I ran extra hard on Sunday to make up for it. It feels so good to set a goal and start progressing towards completely it. Don't get me wrong, I am still a very very very very far away from being able to run 13.1 miles, but it is the point that I made it through the first week and am not even contemplating quiting!

In other news, I had a fantastic weekend! Of course, it was expensive, but it was fantastic nonetheless. My roommate and I had friends over to cook dinner on Friday night. I ended up spending a total of $36.05 at the grocery store. Then we headed out to a local bar where I spent $8.00. On Saturday, I drove 45 mins with a friend to meet my brother and mother for dinner. We went to the casino and those buffet's are expensive. $26.00 spent. And believe me there is no way that I ate $26.00 worth of food. What a rip off, but it was to see family so I am very happy that I made the trip. I had to put gas in my car for $40.00 and then went to lunch after church on Sunday for $12.00. As if this wasn't an expensive enough weekend, I had to go shopping for a black dress for old roommate's wedding. While I didn't find a black dress I found two shirts at Banana Republic if $118.34. Ouch....

Grand total for the weekend -$240.39. Good thing payday is Wednesday!!!!

Mississippi, eh... my family has friends there... it is also a location for one of our family businesses... such a small world - although, I realize Mississippi is a pretty large state, but you said casinos - possibly meaning Tunica... I have been debating riding over for a weekend of fun with the hubby, but not with buffet prices like that!
