Weekend Update

I had an eventful weekend. It was jammed packed with activities so let’s get started, shall we?

I went to a Relay for Life fundraiser. A local clothing/accessory store extended their hours and part of money made during the extended hours went to my town’s Relay for Life. It was a great event with a decent turn out. We made almost $200. I did my part to help Relay for Life, I bought a new dress. I’ve declared it my new summer dress. I will wear it at all major summer events- Sister #1’s graduation stuff, weddings, parties, vacation, summer fish fry, and any other random event that comes my way. It’s good to have a go-to summer dress.

My whole family started off the morning with a race. It was a 5K. This was my first race of the summer, and I walked the whole thing. I’ve never walked a race; this was something new for me. It wasn’t too bad; I had a couple walking partners, which made the time go by very quickly. I’m happy to report I came in second to last- again…a new for me. This race still didn’t make me want to tie up my running shoes and hit the pavement, so I guess I still need a break.

After I walked the race I rushed home to prepare for a bridal shower. The Roommate is getting married this summer so Sister #1 and I threw her a Pampered Chef Bridal Shower. It was a fun shower. I think she received almost everything she wanted. I’m telling you, Pampered Chef Bridal Shower is the way to go! I want a Pampered Chef Bridal Shower if I ever get married. All you do is sit and watch people buy things for you. Oh and you get to eat yummy food while you watch people buy you presents. Really, this whole shower is just calling my name.

My day didn’t end there, after everything was straightened up from the party. I went to the movies. I saw Angels and Demons. It was good. I highly recommend the movie. It wasn’t as good as the book, but the movies never are as good. Next summer movie for me will be Harry Potter. I’m counting down the days!

I had the honor of spending my Sunday in Hometown, USA. Sister #2 is graduating so Sunday was spent doing graduation stuff. First, we went to her Baccalaureate. Then, we went to Hometown, USA’s church to watch her receive her bible. All in all it was a good day. I was able to hang out with the family, see old friends, eat cake, and wear my new go-to summer dress. Good day!

Stay tuned for next week’s events. Big things are happening next weekend….

There is something wrong with your family if you ALL participate in these races. I used to think it was just you: now I know better.
