Double Digit Run and Wedding Season Begins

MOH and Surrat the blushing bride.

So while TMZ was at our local dive investigating Lane Kiffin's troublesome behavior (booze! coeds! drunk driving oh my!), most of the regulars had relocated to Nashville for DG's and Surrat's beautiful wedding at Belle Meade Plantation.

The wedding was a blast- as you can see.

Jules and I were ladies in red.

We all thought the sign on the outside of the church was a bit ironic.  Just like the rain on Surrat's wedding day.  Hence my hair not looking very hot.

Hubs was a bit discomfited with me as we had to make an emergency undie stop on the way to Nashville.  I originally going to wear this dress-

Tins, MOH and me.

However, that dress requires very specific undergarments, as it is a matte silk and short.  Underwear which I forgot to bring. Yeah, I forgot any undies at all, which I remembered about halfway through our drive.  Oops.  Luckily I brought the red number as well, but I still had no undies. Rain plus my clumsiness and the amount of wine I was planning on consuming equals a possibility of me falling. In a short dress.  With no undies.  Horrifying. 

So I began scanning exits for a drugstore where I could run in and grab some emergency undies.  Thankfully, we passed a J.C.Penney in Cookeville, and the emergency was solved.  Who does that?  I have a feeling Hubs will not let this one die for a long time.

I do have a bit of an excuse though- I was exhausted form my first double digit run!  Ten Miles!  I rocked it, much to my surprise.  Much more confident about my half-marathon chances now.  It's amazing what you can train your body to do- ten years ago I was about 15 lbs smaller than I am now, but I could not run a mile. 

I will announce the giveaway winner tomorrow by the way!


  1. Good for you on your 10 miler!

    Love the dress you ended up choosing!

  2. You, my dear, are a rockstar! Good job! thanks for sharing the fun pics!

  3. Hey Samma - I'm so glad to have stumbled upon your blog! Looks like things are great and hope your family is well. Lots of news in Ktown - my husband was glued to espn last week - cursing Lane Kiffin :)

    Take care and let's stay in touch.
    xo Bonnie

  4. I am so proud of your 10 miles -- I remember finishing that for the first time and feeling so darn proud! Your dress looked adorable, even with the "undie situation." I love that you forgot to pack them... totally something I would do... Oh wait - I did do that - ON MY WEDDING DAY! It's a funny story.

  5. I'm so freaking proud of you!! I saw it on Twitter, but, my computer was being ghetto and I couldn't reply. I'm so, so proud of your first 10 miler. You will kick that half marathon's ass sister!

  6. Congrats on your run! That's awesome! Looks like a fun wedding - the sign in front of the church cracked me up.

  7. Congrats on the run! I'm going to start the couch to 5k very soon! The wedding looks like tons of fun, love the outfits (and your hair, I wish mine would do that!)

  8. Nice job on the run! And on the undies score - woo! Adorable pics - glad you had a blasty at the wedding and um, yeah - that sign is VERY ironic - haha!

  9. Oh, that divorce sign is priceless. I'd like to commend you on your classiness with making an emergency pitstop for undies. I, uh, probably would've made a different choice. Given my lack of class and all. ;-)

  10. Congrats on the 10 miles! I agree about training your body - it is amazing. I always said I couldn't run, but I am now training for a half-marathon! I guess I could have ran years ago... I just didn't! :)

  11. Yay for double digits!!

    And you look AMAZING!!!


I love to hear from y'all, so drop me a line!
