It's All In the Shoes

D and I ran in a 10k race this past weekend. It was my first 10k so imagine my surprise when I found out that I got 5th place in my age group! I want to leave it at that but I must be honest and tell the whole turns out that when registering for the race D and I got our time chips switched. It’s that little chip that you attach to your shoe to get your official time. So, I got credit for D’s time of 48 minutes and he got stuck with my time of 59 minutes. Instead of getting 5th place, I really got 51st place. Oh well. At least I finished and we had a really good time.
I did have a Tech sighting. I saw Lori Rich. It was so crowded that I couldn't get to her to talk to her but I wonder what she is doing now. Does anyone know?

Dresses, Bibs, Booties and Blankies for “The Baby”

We got together Saturday for a Baby Shower for Meg. I've got to say that with only a month to go, Meg seems to be the most pleasant and laid back pregnant women ever! Sorry Meg I couldn't resist putting this picture up. She never reads these anyway so maybe she won't ever know.
So back to the shower. The little girl outfits “the baby” got were so adorable. "The baby" got lots of goodies from Cutesy Cloths but they were sent directly to Meg because the name is a secret. By the way you need to ask Mandy to post a picture of the cutest little baby shoes that "the baby" received. Meg got some real life baby lessons when Jaxson came over to visit. I'm sure Jaxson and "the baby" will be really great friends someday and hopefully go to Tech together to carry on their parents tradition.
So Meg, I hope the rest of your pregnancy goes well and we can’t wait to meet “The Baby” (can you tell that I'm a little bitter about Meg and Michael not sharing the name with us).
