Climb the Mountain to Conquer Cancer

Yesterday was the Climb the Mountain to raise funds for the American Cancer S0ciety. My DD Britt and I did the climb, (along with 4,000 other motivated trekkers!) The climb is 7 miles up Sanfrancisco Peaks. We completed that running and walking and then decided to do the same back down instead of riding the shuttle busses. Was a lot of fun and boy am I tired! After a nap, we headed out to JoAnnes! Picked up 7 new Simplicity patterns (sale $1 each) 4076 and 4077 I am very excited to try. There are so many great reviews of both on Pattern Review. Unfortunately I am traveling for work for the next 2 weeks so..... NO SEWING! I might have withdrawls. (-: Will have to supplement with extra running.


  1. Fun! Another obsessed runner/sewer!

  2. Mom you are inspiration to me in my day to day life. I love your strength, enthusiasm, willingness to try new things, the joy you get out everything you do, the love and caring you have for your family, and your passion for life. You are one of my closest friends and everyday I am so thankful that i was given the most wonderful mother. Everthing I have accomplished and all the dreams i have would not be possible without YOU!
    Sorry for the flood of emotions I just saw your pics and that was exactly what felt. I love you so much!!

  3. What more could a mother want than a daughter as wonderful as you? I love you baby!
