Happy Monday after a FUN weekend. A bunch of friends from Zumba participated in the St Louis GLO Run over the weekend. It was a night time 5K... lots of glow sticks, costumes, a DJ spinning tunes before & after the race. It was a race, but I'd swear it was more of a Zumbathon. Our group of about 20 was right in front of the stage. And every time they'd play a song we do in Zumba... we'd all break out in dance... and everyone behind us was following along. It was awesome. TOTAL blast. There are a TON of party pics from that night, but this one is my favorite...
Gotta love any event where you can sport a wig, hat & costume... and still look totally normal.
In the meantime... I have a 12-year daughter already dealing with friend drama at school... over a BOY of all things. I guess I knew all this was coming, but I'm not prepared for this. Things were SO much simpler in elementary school.
Can I just go back to being a room mom? You know... the room mom that mentioned that I was always the only mom that would organize & be in charge of every party every year... and sometimes I just didn't have time for dat.
Yeah... I want that back.
Ughhh. Hopefully someday she ends up with a HUGE group of awesome friends like I have. Total drama-free friends. I am blessed.
The other day at Target, I found this little gem. Granted this Amercian Crafts paper pad is from last year (it's SO last year)... but for $4.48 (regularly $14.99) it's in my cart...
Just some photos on here from this year's St Patrick's Day parade when my parents took Bryn & my niece with them. It's become somewhat of a tradition...
Since it's clearly NOT a St Patrick's themed collection... I used SRM Stickers + some paper piecing (a heart punch) to create my shamrock to give it more of an Irish theme...
One of the local news stations had a photographer at the race, who took the photo of Bryn & my niece. Found that on their website.
I mean why wouldn't they get photographed? They really ARE kinda cute... even if I am WAY partial.
Also made a birthday card with this collection for a friend who celebrated a birthday over the weekend, but didn't leave myself enough time to photograph it before I gave it to her.
Awesome weekend filled with Zumba, family, friends & FUN. Couldn't ask for more than that.
Have a GREAT week, everyone!
