On September 17th, my running partner in crime Hannah and I ran a 5K in Gower, Mo., (her hometown), for a lady who died last year and taught with Hannah's mom. Hannah did such a great job in the race, and her brother, Lance, and I ran pretty well and I got an even better time than I have before. I have one more race before the wedding on October 9th, and am excited to share some results from the last 6 months of running.

I had a wonderful time at Danielle's wedding seeing lot of Theta sisters I had not seen since college plus spending time with Danielle and her new husband, Tyler. I got lots of ideas for my wedding, too. On Sunday, my good friend, Robin and I, used my Groupon to venture out on a beautiful day to the Jowler Creek Winery located about 10 minutes from my home. It was a fun outing before our Junior League social and great to sample their delicious wines. If you ever get the chance to come to our neck of the woods, first let me know, and then I'll take you on some wine tours at our fabulous wineries around Dearborn/Weston.

Finally, this catches us up to speed of the last week of September. I am trying to wrap up large work projects before the wedding, plus finish a wedding, get ready for school to start again, and continue my projects for Junior League. Oh, and I am so so so busy with Mary Kay right now, which I absolutely love and am very thankful for!
|This is Hwy. 59 leading into Atchison. The area is still so full of water and it is devastating to see the houses and farms that this flood took.|
I went to Atchison (THANK YOU FOR OPENING THE BRIDGE!) on Friday and got our paperwork started for our marriage license. I then stopped in one of the best places to grab lunch, remember Willie's? I grabbed lunch there and it was so good as always. I did some shopping at Nell Hill's which you've all heard me talk about too and got some great gifts/wedding decor. This will be another winter project I am going to tackle...isn't it awesome?! It will go great with what I hope we can find for a new sectional.

Finally, here is Todd's trophy from his hunt. It is the largest antelope he has shot thus far, and he was pretty proud of it.
