Random Request...

At church on Sunday an elderly women came up to me and asked if I was Sister Rencher. She then proceeded to say that she had been told to ask me if I had any pioneer clothing that could be used for the Relief Society birthday celebration. She specifically asked for a long skirt and a shawl. My first thought was...why did someone send her my way to find pioneer clothing? I know I am not the most fasionable person but please tell me I don't look like all my clothes are homemade (not that homemade is a bad thing, but if I made them it would be). This woman asked me with such enthusiasm I couldn't turn her down so I told her I would get a hold of something that would work. So I am now asking any and all of you if you for some reason have anything that resembles pioneer clothing that I could borrow. Or know where I can find some?

All Dressed Up...

Saturday night was the annual gala at Nate's school. I love having a reason to get all dressed up. I bought a pretty dress, put lots of make-up on, stressed about how to do my hair, gave up on trying and just left it pulled half up, got a baby sitter (thanks Nikki) and we danced the night away. It really was such a fun night.Before the gala a big group of us got together for dinner.

Cambri joined us for a litte while because I felt bad making Nikki watch her for 6 hours. Most babies go to bed around 7 or at least by 8. Nope not our little pumpkin. She stayed up until 11:30pm and partied with Nikki.

The decorations are always amazing at the gala. The pics don't do it justice. What a cute couple:)

Our first stop was the treat table. I loved the rice crispy treats the most.

Showing off our moves!

My cute friends.

Busting more moves on the dance floor with Amanda and Gavin.

Too bad this is the last year we will get to go to the gala. I guess I will just have to find another reason to get all fancied up.

Need your Support...

...I have made the decision to run one of the local races here in Des Moines. Problem is it is a 20K and I am sure I have NEVER run that far in my life. In fact I don't really enjoy running. So why am I doing it?...just to say I did it. No other reason. I know many of you have run marathons so a 20k is nothing. I am pretty sure I will NEVER run a marathon. It doesn't even tempt me and if it does I just have to go run a mile and I am reminded that there is no way I can repeat that 25 more times.

I share my new goal with you because I know that if I don't make it a public announcement I won't do it. I need someone to check up on me every once in a while to make sure I am still on top of things. So good luck to me. And if anyone wants to join me the race is Saturday May 30. You can check it our here.
