Trick or Treat

Still working on my recap from MCM…but until that goes live, I give you some halloween joy of Jackson’s costumes from the past three years!

and before that as a spider!

What is the best pet halloween costume you have ever seen?

It has always been a goal of mine to get Jackson in a ewok costume – I think it would be perfect for him, but I am just not that crafty!

I wish this was the official tshirt from the race – I kinda loved it, except it said “Support Crew” on the back!

A little outline of the marathon route:

This is the first race I have ever been in where we got a patch! I kinda liked it!

DSC_0261.JPG

I was NOT liking the shirt they gave us. It is a horribly rough material, not technical by any means and the mock turtle neck is a little weird too.

The back of the shirt was a little weird too.

Oh well, I didn’t let an ugly race shirt get between me and my 3rd marathon! Stay tuned for my Marine Corps Marathon 2011 Race Recap!

How Many Feet In A Marathon?

There are 138,435 feet in a marathon.

Stay tuned for an update on the expo and a race recap!

RhodeyGirl & PhillyBoy’s Bambino

Today I had the pleasure of meeting RhodeyGirl & PhillyBoy’s Bambino!

DSC_0230.JPG

This was the first time I had ever met a baby this young – Bambino is only 1 month old!

DSC_0231.JPG

Sabrina is such a natural with Bambino, it was fun to chat with her about how her first month as a new mom has been. It’s so amazing to see how much she and her hubby, Trig, are in love with their brand new baby. Their little family of 3 is so cute!

Baby Raffi played with us for a little while during our visit, but then he pretty much passed out and slept in everyone’s arms.

It’s pretty easy to fall in love with a snuggly, sleeping, adorable baby – I know I did!

DSC_0236.JPG

Is it me or is a good chunk of everyone you know pregnant, trying to get pregnant or just had a baby? When did that happen? When did we all become grown-ups, and parents??

DSC_0238.JPG

Either way, its hard not to get the baby fever after meeting a sweet little angel like baby Bambino. He is going to be a heart-breaker for sure!

Do you and/or all your friends have baby fever right now?

Fist Pumpin’ into the Promenade

So you may have noticed the past week or so my posting has been a little sporadic. I apologize for coming and going inconsistently on my little blog but I have been a little preoccupied with my job. I am currently in the process of opening a brand spankin’ new store – its been an amazing journey, but its taking up a LOT of my time! All my hard work will be worth it when it opens this Friday!

ComingSoon.jpg

I wanted to share with you just a few of the images I have created regarding the store store opening!
