Friday was my last day at work. I ended up leaving around lunch time as I had handed off all of my projects/responsibilities so had nothing further to do. It was a beautiful day so I decided to go to a park by my condo to do some reading. It was blissful.
I also treated myself to some ice cream at a local place called Izzy's.
On Friday evening, my friend Courtney came over and we went to a local music festival called the Basilica Block Party. It's a unique event as it's held on the grounds of the Basilica of St. Mary, which is a huge Catholic church. You'd never guess it is on the grounds of a church as it's quite the party! I was most excited about seeing Matt Kearney as I adore his music, but it was fun to see OAR and Weezer, as well.

On Saturday morning I ran 14 miles with my running club. It was really warm and humid so I was so glad when we were done. I did the whole run with another girl that is newer to our club and talking with her made the miles go by so much faster.
|Soooo happy to be done with that hot run.|
In the evening we went to the wedding, which was a lot of fun. The ceremony was at a garden that was so beautiful! We snapped a quick photo before the ceremony started.
The funny thing is that we both wore the exact same outfits to a wedding last August...
It's the perfect dress for a summer wedding as the style of the dress is elegant but it's also super comfortable as it's made out of jersey fabric.
On Sunday morning I met up with my friend Courtney to do an open water swim at a local lake. We both had off days and the swim did not go well for either of us. I just could not get my breathing down and it took me forever to swim the 0.75 miles. Phil and I are doing this same swim on Tuesday so hopefully it goes better then!
The rest of Sunday was spent adulting (laundry, grocery shopping, etc). I also harvested more herbs. I can not believe how much basil my plant is producing. I seem to get about 2 cups of basil from it every week! Later this week I'll share what I've been doing with all that basil!
