I had a really full weekend and didn’t have time to post my activities individually because I had so many damn activites. It all started on Friday with a trip to see Kings of Leon. Some friends and I rented a limo and headed up to Verizon for the show. Limos are totally the way to go to any concert if you can arrange it. Not having to worry about driving, parking, lines, is worth the money. The show was great and it didn’t rain! Definitely a great way to end an outdoor season of music for me.
Saturday, I woke up bright and early to meet my co-workers downtown to compete in the Corporate Challenge at 8am. I organized the event for my company this year. I had to push through my 4 hours of sleep I got, put on a smile, and participate in the 5K run, 1/2 mile run, and cornhole toss. I did the 5K in 24 minutes and change, then the 1/2 mile in 3:13. Mmepphh, I’ll take it after the night I had. Strange to think my best 1/2 mile in high school was basically a minute faster. I hung out at IUPUI until everyone was done competing and headed home.
Making a responsible decision, I chose not to attend the Notre Dame/Purdue game because I had a volunteer commitment on Sunday that I did not want to miss. The original plan was to stay the night on campus and live it up like we were still in college. The game was at 8 pm, so that is a long day and night of partying that could go awry. However, on my way home from IUPUI, my buddy Jared called and said he was going to the game. Hmmm. If I knew that I had a ride back here after the game so I knew I wouldn’t miss my Sunday event…. twist my arm! I made a few phone calls and had a ticket! I met Jared at McDonald’s where we fashionably waited for our ride to the game.
Seeing Notre Dame play has always been a dream of mine. Rudy was a high school favorite movie of mine. I dreamt of going to Notre Dame. My parents offered me one year at Notre Dame or 4 years at a state school. I think I chose wisely. So I was very excited to watch my alma mater and my wishful alma mater play in Ross-Ade. However, the game was unfortunate. We were in the lead and only needed to hold the Domers for 4 minutes. We couldn’t do it. Sara’s expression said it all.
A good time was still had by all. Uncle Steve turned 50.
We got to smash Irishman pinatas.
And I got to see my old crew from the Deuce.
Today I attended the Pearls of Pink Model party at Nordstroms. I’m currently volunteering as the Model Chairman for the Pink Ribbon Fall Fashion Show. It’s a wonderful event where all the models are breast cancer survivors or work in the medical profession assisting breast cancer patients. It was the first time we all got to meet each other and hear everyone’s stories. I’m so excited to be part of this event and affiliated with this great organization. We are down to our last 2 weeks before the big show. All that I have left to do is find my outfit!
So, this is the first time I’ve sat and rested in the past few days, but it’s short lived. Off to a cookout for the Colts game!
