Susan G. Komen follow-up

We had a great time at the Susan G. Komen walk last weekend! Although it was cloudy, damp, and slightly windy, we managed to enjoy ourselves, get a couple of freebies, and enjoy the company of many others as we walked the streets of downtown Knoxville. We also celebrated SIL's birthday in style - we went to an awesome German restaurant for dinner where she was serenaded by our waiter on accordian and a kitchen guy on trombone. They played a German polka on the way to the table, Happy Birthday, and then topped it off with Rocky Top since we had already been talking about the Alabama/Tennessee game throughout dinner with the waiter. It was great!

Happy Halloween, everyone! Our in-residence Halloween kitty, Thoth, will be thrilled to greet trick-or-treaters at our door tonight. My candy basket is full, apple pie is baked, and we'll be joining some friends to watch the GT/Vandy game later. Go Jackets!

2009 Komen Knoxville

I'm going to be participating in the 2009 Komen Race for the Cure in Knoxville on October 24th. My SIL decided that this is how she wanted to spend her birthday, so DH and I are on Team Love Cake with her! If you are so inclined, please consider supporting me as we support a cure for breast cancer! See my donor page.
The last time we participated in a Susan G. Komen was in Honolulu with my cousins in 2007, just before a family wedding. As you can see in the group photo, we had a blast, and my cousin's MIL is a cancer survivor! I'm looking forward to being at World's Fair Park, since the last time I was there was 1981 for the World's Fair.
