I’ve had a busy weekend! Busy with fun things, though. That always makes a difference.
On Friday, I had a dinner party for a few friends.
I actually had one more friend than this, but she didn’t make it in the pictures, sorry Em!
We made our own pizzas! I made 6 little crusts using this easy and quick recipe, and then had all sorts of toppings around to add. We also snacked on veggies, hummus, crackers and cheese.
A couple of the finished products…
Meeker made a pizza too, but couldn’t eat with us because he was on his way to a Halloween haunted house with some co-workers. He dressed up as a nerd…not too far fetched.
Look at those elastic waist band pants – we found them for $3 at Salvation Army!
Then on Saturday, I woke up bright and early, drove to Eastern Colorado, for a charity race (that my cousin put together!) to raise money for Superkids – and organization that aims to improve the quality of lives of orphans worldwide.
My super-runner brother won the whole race, and my dad won his age group. (I have a family of fast runners!) My 7 year old niece and I actually walked the race together – I was so proud of her for going strong for the full 5k! Her first race!
Because I only got about 3.5 hours of sleep on Friday, I crashed last night, and got a full 12 hours of shut-eye. Now I’m sitting at my kitchen table refreshed and enjoying the last of The Hippie’s pumpkin banana bread and a cranberry kombucha.
