Notice anything different about the look of my blog?
I’m considering myself lucky, very lucky… This morning I updated my theme and this is what I got. It’s never a good thing to see those two words, “Fatal error.”
Fortunately, I always backup my website before updating anything. A quick Goggle search showed that other users of the Evolve theme had the same thing happen when they updated. Many people said that they went back to the old version of Evolve and restored their website using it again, but I haven’t figure that out. In the meantime, I’m using a different theme and giving myself a huge pat on the back that I was even able to figure that out!
My plan for today was to talk about what a great weekend we had, not to bore you with geek talk!
Back to the weekend, Friday morning started with our race and a break in the weather. Saturday morning’s weather just got better! It was cool, crisp and perfect when we headed out on Saturday morning for our group run.
We only had four MRTT ladies meet for our run, but considering it was a holiday weekend, that wasn’t surprising!
We ran four miles together and when we returned to the parking lot, Beth and I were pleasantly surprised to find our Cruiser friend Jerome ready to start his run. At best, we had hoped to meet him on the trail somewhere during our run, so it was a huge bonus to be able to run with him for a few miles.
Just as Beth and I were finishing up our run (13 miles for Beth, 10 for me), we bumped into another Cruiser friend Joe! Obviously, the W&OD Trail is a very social place for us!
Bill ran a little bit later in the morning, so I had the house to myself for most of Saturday morning. I worked on my Firecracker 5K recap, and once Bill got home we had a few hours before Joseph and his groomsmen stopped by the house after a morning of golf. They were on their way to part two of their three-part bachelor party. Here they are ready to head out to their final destination, Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races. I’ll tell you about part-two, and most definitely the best part of their day, tomorrow!
Sunday morning I was pleasantly surprised that my BRF Susan was in town, so we ran for about 6 miles. I chilled, caught up on some stuff, cleaned out a closet, and then Bill and I made these amazing shrimp for dinner!
It was a near perfect weekend, and the weather was a huge contributing factor! Thanks, Mother Nature for cooperating!
- How was your weather this weekend?
- Did you celebrate quietly or with lots of friends and family?
- What’s your biggest fear?

Thanks! The shrimp were delicious AND it’s taking me longer than I would like to get my blog back in order. In the meantime, I’m embarrassed with how it looks, but “it is what it is.”
I had that same “fatal error” message on my blog a few weeks ago. After a stressful day, my husband fixed it temporarily. And, I hired a computer genius to transfer my blog to a self-hosted site – I think tomorrow is the big day for all of that to be done!!!
So, is your son getting married?!

Kim, you are giving me hope! I still trying to find another theme that I like as much as my old one… We’ll see what I can find, and then of course once I find it, there’s so much customizing to do.
Yes, my oldest son gets married in less than a month! I can’t wait to finally have a daughter! 🙂
Phew about your blog! That’s great that you back it up regularly enough that you don’t have to worry TOO much. Weddings are so exciting! 🙂

I still can’t use my old theme and haven’t found a new one that I like as much! I’m too old for change! HaHaHa!
Glad to hear you had a great Fourth weekend filled with running! Joseph’s groomsmen all look handsome and clean after a round of golf. Hope they had a nice night.

I wish all weekends could be as fun with such perfect weather as this past weeknd was!
Good for you for backing it up. You’re way more organized than I am, and I would be in deep shit had I updated!

It was one of those “blood runs cold” moments when I realized what had happened!
Those shrimp look amazing!! We spent the holiday at the White House!! Post coming on Wednesday 🙂

I saw your husband and son’s picture from the White House on Instagram. I can’t wait to ready about it!
When I first saw your blog I thought “oh she did a blog makeover, too!” haha… hopefully it will be back to normal soon. Looks like you had a great weekend… I recently found a MRTT in my area but haven’t been able to meet up yet. Have a great week!

It was an unintentional ambush makeover! HaHaHa!
I hope you enjoy your MRTT group as much as I enjoy mine!
I always get nervous updating the theme! But I backup beforehand every time, too. Maybe this is just a good excuse for a makeover! 😉 I love how social your running is, so fun.

I’m not sure when I’ll get the look back to the way I like it, and I’m not embarrassed with it. 🙁
I love my two running groups! We have so much fun!
Ugh I freaking hate technology sometimes and how appropriate for a Monday morning. I’m sorry about what happened. 🙁 I can look into it a little bit if you are having trouble (I’m a designer and I do some web stuff for my job…my email is [email protected] if you have any questions). It sounds like you had such a great weekend! 🙂

Thanks, I’ll let you know if I need any help!
Oy good job dealing with that fatal error! That is one of my worst fears. I don’t even know how to back up my blog, so I’m probably just asking for it. I need to look into that ASAP…

Holly warned me about not backing it up once, and I took warning. Shortly afterward I happened upon a tutorial on someone else’s blog. Now that you have WordPress you can do this for a basic backup.
