Cupcake Time!

 Now you see why I chose mostly pictures for today's post - such a jam-packed weekend!  I spent most of the weekend with my family and had a blast!  I enjoyed being outside and testing my limits - I am not a runner, but it was fun participating in Color Me Rad and having my parents support us.  I am already looking forward to this upcoming weekend - and it's only Monday night :/  But, I have a feeling it will come sooner than usual ;)

Well, I hope your weekend was as exciting as mine!

Have an awesome evening!
