Saturday morning was the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Little Rock. We have one of the largest races in the country, and this year was no different! 45,000 women signed up!!! WOW! It is one of my favorite things to do each year, and I always do it with my mom and sister. It is inspiring to see that many women, together, for one single goal: to find a cure!!!
These are the dancing fireman! There is always a traffic jam at this turn, and you can see why!!! My sister and I want to run it next year, but we decided that we need to get our time down to about 20 minutes so that we will have a built in buffer zone of about 5 minutes to stop and watch them perform! They throw beads and "drop trow" (they have shorts on underneath. Dang. LOL!
I also spent a lot of the weekend (and every other day of my life!) chasing after this girl!!!! She can get around pretty good these days, and is starting to want to stand up a lot. She still won't sit up for any length of time. But it is just because she is SOOO active. So I am not too worried. :)
I also FINALLY finished my door canvas for Halloween! Just in time, too! I don't know if I will get one done for Thanksgiving or not! I have a LOT to do between now and then, and my personal crafts are on the bottom of my priorities right now! But I am glad to have this guy done. It really looked odd with all of my pumpkins and mums...and the HOG canvas! LOL! My goal is to get a canvas done for each holiday!
Here is the bathroom post paint. I will do a full Before and After post soon. I just decided to paint it my Ben Moore Brookline Beige because A. It is a great neutral, and B. I bought 10 gallons of it when we moved into this house and still have about 3/4's of one of the 5 gallon buckets left! LOL!!! I always overbuy on paint! But you never know when you will need a touch up!
I had already bought her one Santa gift...this adorable rocker from Toy's R Us. Isn't it the sweetest little thing??? I just love it! In my family, Mom and Dad usually got us one big-ish thing, but the "good" stuff always came from Santa!
I also ordered her this adorable "Anywhere Chair" from PBK. It will have her name in green on the back. Isn't it too cute?!?! All of my friend's who have one for their kids just rave about them. My child probably won't like it because she doesn't like sitting still, but maybe she will sit in it and drink her breakfast bottle or juice, maybe watch cartoons. That is what I envision, anyway. I bought it to match her room, but I think it will be a fixture in the living room.
MY PSA FOR THE WEEK:
Speaking of Christmas, I always do an Angel from the Angel Tree. Do you have that in your state? I didn't know if that was an Arkansas thing, or an everywhere thing. It is a great program done by the Salvation Army. I am already looking forward to doing one again this year. Money is tight for everyone, but these families just want to give their babies Christmas! We are so blessed, and I think that, especially at Christmas, it is a time to give and share. I want to raise Ava that way as well. If you can, do an Angel.
Have a great week!!!!
