so this weekend has been very busy but overall a great weekend. friday night started out with our monthly bunco group getting together. now, we haven't actually played bunco in months (don't tell our husbands...but i think their onto us!) but just getting together with neighbors and friends is always a treat. the host always makes great food and the beverages are usually pretty darn tasty as well.
saturday morning was the Susan Komen race for the Cure in st. louis. it was only a 5k but at 93 degrees and 65,000 of our closest friends joining us it was steamy to say the least. but what an amazing race. i wish i had brought my camera. but i knew with the heat i probably wasn't going to want to lug it around. if you ever have the opportunity to be a part of something of this magnitude or have never really given it a thought, it's definitely something everyone should experience at least once. we were all surprised at how organized and how smoothly everything seemed to go. with that many people you would think it would be a complete mess. the race got started on time and it took us an hour and 40 minutes to walk it. the first mile seemed like it took forever...i'm not sure how many people were in front of us but when we made it to the top of a hill it seemed as though there were miles of people in front of us and just as many behind us. it was just amazing. body after body. it probably sounds silly but it was so empowering. this is something i definitely want to do every year and get the rest of our family involved as well. lauren was pretty jazzed about it when i got home and said she wanted to race next year! st. louis just missed the record for most registered to race by 100!
i'm pretty sure my husband doesn't read my blog or at least not often but if by chance he happens to take a peak...happy father's day sweetheart! you're an amazing father and i probably don't tell you often enough. so thank you for all you do...for me, for the girls and for our family! i love you!
so i was looking around on line a bit ago and found a couple of cool sites. there is a new magazine coming out (if not already?) called Organize. i can't wait to get my hands on this one. and the other site is this one Sk*rt. a cool site for women with tons of information and ideas.
i'll leave you with a really good appetizer recipe....nancy made this on friday night for our bunco group. i have never had them before but they were so good.
i'm not sure what their called but you take cherry tomatoes and hollow them out a bit, then cream together sour cream (small tub), a bag of the hidden valley ranch dip and bacon bits. spoon a little into each tomatoe and chill. they were so good.
have a great week!
