What didn't I win last night? Let me tell you ALLLLLL about it....

Last night was Ladie's Night at Potomac River Runners. These are my favorite! There is always food, wine, freebies and raffles. I love a good raffle. I also had $50 in gift cards from the Reston Tri. Needless to say, I walked in like I owned the place.

My mom came with me and we walked around, looked at stuff, had a drink, and hit the clearance rack. Around 8:30 they started the drawings. The first few things to go were jackets and some other stuff I didn't hear. I was really there for the free shoes. Last year at this same Ladies Night I won a pair of Brooks shoes. That was pretty great. They announced they had 2 more drawings - for the shoes. The next name they called was my mom! Yeah mom!!! She was funny. The next name they called was not there, same with the next. Then. They called MY name! What!!!??? We both won running shoes! Wahooooo!

me, the Brooks guy, and mom
So what did I walk out with? Thanks for asking....

I bought shoes, then won a pair. Shoes for a year!

I met a real NFL player (or two)

October is breast cancer awareness month (duh!) and I'm sure we have all been touched by it at some point in time. Sam and I got the opportunity to go to a fundraiser thrown by Chris Cooley - Washington Redskins. I've never seen an NFL player in real life, so I was excited about that. I mean....they are all HUGE. Right? Nope.

Just my size
So, my friend Megan from Events in the City DC put on the event. It was BEAUTIFUL! I'm trying to find a reason to throw a HUGE party just so she can plan it.

Me and the party planners

Jayson and Sam

My camera doesn't take dark pics well, but it was soooo pretty!

I also got to wear a dress from Carly (the box!). I was so happy that the weather was nice so I could wear it.

Mason being "cool"

This weekend is full of pumpkin patches and birthdays. Anyone doing anything exciting?

Hello Fall!!!

I love Fall. It's the best. I love the way the air smells. I love not sweating just walking to my car. I love the look and feel of all of it. Fall, I love you.

I'm obsessing over pumpkins this month. The look and having them in recipes. If you have any amazing pumpkin recipes - bring it on! We've even carved pumpkins already! They rotted quickly and I threw them away, but we got it in.

Cutest Pumpkin

pumpkin latte. yum!

pumpkin soup IN a pumpkin? Genius!

I also love Fall fashion. I haven't gotten very good at pairing things together, but I get alot of style tips from Carly and Megan. Thanks girls!
