Race for the Cure

Today Miss Sofia finished her second 5k! Pretty impressive considering she's not even born yet. Marc and I walked the National Race for the Cure this morning. The pretty stinky thing, though, there were only official times for the first hour of the race..basically for all the runners. We came across the finish at 1 hour 15 minutes. I really wanted an official time, too. We probably could have had an official time, but they didn't start the walkers until 15 minutes after the runners. And then there were so many walkers out there too, just sauntering along at a turtle's pace. So, if we'd started at 8 with the runners and didn't have everyone in our way, we might have had an official time. =) And, on top of all that, I think I actually got more like 5 miles in today instead of just the 3.2 of the actual race. Thanks to this wonderful website, www.gmap-pedometer.com, I tracked all the walking we did this morning. We walked over a mile from the metro stop to the port-o-potties (I'm pregnant, what can I say, I've always got to go), and then wandering around all the vendors. And I'm sure we got even more distance when we walked back to the starting line. Then after the race, we walked 0.8 miles from the finish line through the water/food station to visit more vendors and back to the metro. So, 1 + 0.8 + 3.2 = 5. I'm gonna need a nap this afternoon or an early bed time.

We've also been painting the baby's room. It's not quite done. We have to tape the wood work and do the edges, but it's almost done. The color is called Palm Breeze, but it's really a very light shade of a sage green. It matches one of the colors in the baby's bedding and it also is very close to a color in the comforters we have on the day bed for the girls. I'm hoping that it ties everything together. Speaking of the girls, they'll be here next Saturday for 2 weeks. I'm really looking forward to having 2 weeks off from work and being able to spend time with them (and sleep in!).

I'll leave you with pictures of me and Sofie in our Race for the Cure t-shirt...this is me at 24 weeks (6 months). These pictures are in the baby's room, so you can kinda see the new color on the wall behind me. (Oh, and disregard the bad hair....I'm trying to grow it out again. I really didn't feel like styling it when I got out of the shower and I'm tired of pony tails that don't hold it all. I tried the double french braid. Doesn't look too hot...)




It seems like Marc has gotten more paint on himself than the walls.


This kind of gives you an idea of the paint color...kinda...

You look so cute! Sofia is growing! I like the room color, looks kinda sage in the pictures.

I like the paint color! (I've become very fond of any shade of green :-) ) You look prego! That's so exciting :-) (lol, and just for reference, you're supposed to paint the edges first and then roll the walls) but it looks good anyways!!
