Technical Difficulties and Holiday Deals

Not that your waiting on the edge of your seat for the next blog post, but I ran into a major error message when trying to upload the million-and-one photos I took over Thanksgiving! This is what it said:

Whoops! You're out of space. You are currently using 100% of your 1 GB quota for photos. Upgrade storage
Photos are stored in your Picasa Web Albums account and are included in your 1 GB free quota for photos. Additional storage you purchase is shared between several Google products and is in addition to your free quota. Learn more

Have any of you ever seen this before? I have a friend who got this message a few months ago and is going to give me some suggestions later today, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to see if there is more than one solution!

For now, I'll share some of the holiday deals that have been sent to me through Groupon and Escalate affiliate networks.

Savannah Marathon Weekend!

This past weekend, my mom, Charles, and Matt ran a MARATHON in Savannah! I went along for the ride... as the cheerleader. Because nothing about running 26.2 miles appealed to me. :)

I was SO proud of them! They all worked so hard in their training and completed the race without a problem. They were awesome!

The red carpet of racing

Race morning!

I practically memorized this map as I made my way to all the different mile markers to cheer them on!

One of our coaches from high school was standing right behind Matt!

Counting down to the start!

And he's off! ...I guarantee I would not look that happy!

Go mom!

Papa at mile 20!

...on my way to meet mom at the 20- I got to run the last 10K with her!

So close!

The last stretch to the finish! SO proud of my mom!!

A little post-run debrief :)

Love this boy! He KILLED it! And to think the only other race he's done was when we ran the Peachthree 10K over TEN years ago!

haha... had to.

Catching a well-deserved cab to lunch! ;)

This place was voted as having the best sandwich in America on the Travel Channel... even cheerleaders need a good post-race lunch! ;)

Sunday morning we took a lil bike ride around the Landings Club. (A family friend let us use their house for the weekend). Man was it NICE! 

Breakfast at Driftaway Cafe- Oh. YUM.
