Giveaway winner and a very busy weekend!!

The winner of my first ever blog giveaway is.....Catholic Runner! Congrats!! I will mail your Vera Bradley purse and wallet out on Tuesday!! I had so much fun doing this giveaway and I am going to do another one next month for Thanksgiving so stay tuned!!!

Here are Brock and Ava right before picking the winner

Our weekend started a day early because Brock and Ava didn't have school on Friday. We did a little shopping. Ava loves riding in the cart, the only problem is I can't fit too much stuff in it. We went to Target and I only spent $20...what was wrong with me???? I usually spend about $100!!

After we did a little shopping we went to lunch and Ava made her own pizza!

After lunch we went to see High School Musical 3, doesn't Brock look thrilled?

Saturday was another busy day. Tailgating is not big at all at the College where I work because we don't have a football team. Anyway, my intern this semester, Michaela, wanted to plan a tailgate before our school's biggest soccer game of the year! She did such a great job and everyone had such a great time, we are going to do another one next semester before a Lacrosse game. My camera died (it was awful!!) and I only got one picture. Michaela and her sorority sisters made a whole bunch of cute signs for the tailgate, here is one of the signs they made.

Today one of my sorority's sponsored a walk for their philanthopy the National Kidney Foundation. They raised $13,000 at the Walk!! I am so happy for them, they worked so hard to make it a success!

Here's Ava making a pumpkin at the Kidney Walk

My student worker Diana (in the glasses) with her twin sister Christina. Diana and Christina did so much work for the Kidney Walk. Ava loves hanging out with Diana when she comes to my office. Brock with his balloon hat at the Kidney Walk
After the Kidney Walk we went to the College where my friend Allison works and went Trick or Treating in the Residence Halls. It was a lot of fun and it got us in the mood for Halloween. Here are Ava and our neighbor Anika, they are both dressed up like Gabriella from High School Musical.

Tonight we met Grandma Jan at Pizza Hut for dinner. We had a great time and ate way to much pizza. Graig comes home on Thursday (Thank goodness!!)
