First Place!

Lately I have had no motivation to blog. I know there is so much to tell, post, say but seriously I am exhausted. Today I thought I would put up some pictures of the past couple of weeks.

Last week was crazy! Christie and I decided to make a cake for Amy's baby shower. Christie taught me how to make fondant and to make little animals. I had such a blast being able to learn from her, and to see the end result. She is truly amazing and talented. Amy's shower turned out fabulous, and Christie was a great host. After the shower it was off to a fun little store with Amberly, Kara and Erika! Oh man do I have a blast with those girls. Not even ten minutes after being dropped off by Amberly it was off to the Pinewood Derby chili cook off! Chris didn't have the opportunity to attend scouts growing up so I thought it would be great if he participated in this derby. I had my 12 year old brother pick his favorite derby car and send it out to us. Mind you my dad has been in scouts for over 20 years and knows how to make cars fast. We had such a great time. The chili was yummy, and the racing was awesome. The Terry's won for the fan favorite soup, and Chris won first place with his derby car! We were so proud. Best moment of the entire thing is Brian made a car not even 10 min before the race, and painted it with chili. He ended up placing 3rd! It was awesome!

After the derby Chris stayed home to watch the Duke vs NC game, while I met up with the Finley's, Brian and Terry's for dessert and a movie. We went and saw 10,000 BC, and I really didn't like it. I think Chris would like it though. It was a blast hanging out. I got home to a very very sad Christopher, surrounded by stuffed animals. I had to take a picture. He is adorable!

I can't wait for another fun weekend!!!
