Ok, so the title doesn’t really have anything to do with my post this week, except that I went to a Halloween party on Friday and the had it on their TV, I went as a hipster dude by the way, which consisted of my normal clothes, but with a pant leg rolled up, my hair up in a hat, and a giant fake handlebar moustache, wanna see? of course you do!
I was at said party because I went home to Charlottesville for half the weekend. This time of year me and my girls from high school like to get together and go up to Carter Mountain Orchard for some apples in their various capacities; apple cider, apple cider donuts, caramel apple chunk cookies, apple butter, the possibilities are endless! I’m pretty sure this was year 11, making the first trip in 2000, now there are husbands and babies and jobs, but not nearly enough moustaches, obviously. I love this annual tradition, because we all live relatively far apart now, but it’s something we can still come together for. Also I get to go to Bodo’s bagels, which, if you’ve never been to C’ville before, you won’t understand, but they are amazingly good.
But I digress, the big news of the week is that I reached my fundraising goal! Yay! Thanks so much to everyone who donated, I hope to give you all hugs someday. It’s a huge load off my mind to know that everything from this point on is icing on the cake, and great gift for an amazing cause. I promise I will work as hard as I can to continue training for the half marathon, I did 9.85 miles today on my run, so I’m in good shape for the race, which is a little over a month away. I suppose that’s it for this week, remember is you donated $25 or more make sure to send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with preferred cut (men’s or ladies) and which size you prefer. If you donated $100 or more you are also entitled to a free bottle of wine, so specify your preferred varietal in the e-mail.
On last thing, a big congrats so out to Sabrina Jess and David Johnson on their engagement, I wish the best to you two crazy kids!
