Around here it was all about racing this past week. My oldest son ran in the Care 4 Breast Cancer Run for awareness and the task force for the uninsured and under insured in his hometown. Out of 1600 runners he came in third and raised quite a chunk of money. This is a photo of him back in his school days running a race. I know he will be so embarrassed that I posted this but I don't care.....I am so proud of him!!!!
Back in August we celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary and I gave Bobby G. a racing school gift certificate. What an idiot I thought to myself after it was all said and done. What have I done? He needs that like he needs a hole in the head. Ack! But after seeing the big grin on his face yesterday it was worth it. He loved it and I loved the sounds of the race cars as they revved their engines and sped off around the course. It was very exciting driving your car through the tunnel that the real Nascar drivers would have used on a race day.......getting suited up and being interviewed just like the real deal. The weather was just perfect and it was a fun afternoon. Problem is next year I will have to come up with something that is even more thrilling. :)
And speaking of the winner's circle I have been blessed again this week with not one but two awards. Marie over at Personalized Sketches and Sentiments gave me this blog award, "you're the sweetest". It's a cupcake! How sweet is that? And I have to tell you if you are looking for a very special Christmas gift you must go see Marie's blog. She does the most incredible sketches you have ever seen all done in a person's name. You have to go look!
And Sue, over at CollectIn Texas Gal presented me with the Honest Scrap Award. Sue is an avid vintage collector and her blog is really fun to read so I hope you will visit her and tell her I sent you. :) Thank you Sue.
Have a great week y'all and may your racing heart not be scared to death this Halloween week.
