Racing, Baby showers, and a 30th Birthday!

Well all these busy weekends FINALLY caught up to me this past Saturday! We had another jam packed weekend, but had lots of fun!

Friday night I hung out with my mom, sister and Claire and we went to Copelands. They have the most amazing cheesecake EVER! We even topped it off with Bananas Foster! DELISH.

Saturday I woke up at 5:30 to get ready for the Race for the Cure! I will admit, I havent been up that early in a LONG time. So Sadie and I got in our Racing gear and headed to the promenade. This is the second year that we had a group for Kitchen Queens. We ate breakfast and hung out for an hour or so before the race, then we loaded up and headed to the family fun walk. I didnt run the 5k because I had Sadie, but next year she will be sleeping in for the cure while her mama runs. She was a little overwhelmed and I had to hold her during the family fun walk. haha…Here are lots of fun pics!

how sweet are these two!

Then Saturday afternoon Rachel, my mom, Brooke and I went to a Baby shower for our friend Ashley. It was such a colorful, fun shower and they did a great job on it. Drew and I got Miss Avery some baby leopard heels. SO STINKIN CUTE! We also got burp cloths that had a crown and “think princess” on them. I love baby stuff! Ashley’s baby got tons of adorable things, she is set up! I didnt get a chance to take any pictures, but we had a wonderful time!
THEN, I met Drew at Joses for margaritas and cheese dip. Yum! I started to get a little sleepy at this point. That night we had Drew’s co-workers Surprise 30th Birthday! I was hoping I would get my third wind, but at 11:00 I was WORN OUT! Kristin and Drew tried to talk me into staying out, but I was about to fall asleep standing up haha. We did manage to get some pics before I left though! : )
dontcha love kristin’s new hair cut!

silly time

haha love her!

Sunday night we met some friends at Bizzy’s for dinner then Drew and I went and looked at a condo we are thinking about moving too. We are on the house hunt right now, but wanted to move to the other side of Fayetteville until we find our dream home. I fell in love with the condo and we may make a move pretty soon.
hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Its going to be a gloomy week here.. rain allllll week long! April showers bring May flowers… lets hope so : )

    I love your dress your wore out Sat. night. Haha! I was going to appologize for not calling you and meeting up with you on Dickson, but you did the same thing we did. I was in bed asleep by 12! Before that, I was passed out on the couch trying to watch a movie. I was too tired for Dickson.

    I had an exhausting weekend (mainly Saturday) too & needed most of Sunday to recover, ha!

    Sadie looked adorable, as usual – I wish the Hubs would let me dress him in pretty, pretty pink outfits : – )
