Baby Shower-Star Wars Style

This is how showers are run when nerds throw baby showers. Becky, the mommy-to-be, loves Star Wars, so a Star Wars shower she had. Slightly less girly than most showers, which was fine by me. We even had an R2D2 cake!!

My best friend is getting ready to have her second child, and while I was thrilled that she had not had the baby yet so she could attend the shower, she is anxious to not be pregnant. But she did have a good time at the party, and her daughter, who is 5, got several presents as well, so no one was left out!!

Good luck to Becky, and best wishes for an easy delivery and a healthy baby!!

Mojo Farmers at the PF Changs Rock N Roll Marathon!!!

The Mojo Farmers played at the PF Changs Rock N Roll Marathon this morning. Congratulations to all those who ran in the race, both the half marathon, and the full marathon. For those who ran the full marathon, they were treated to the awesome sounds of the Mojo Farmers at mile 17.5. For those who are unfamiliar with the RNR marathon, bands line the course. This year there were over 70 bands on the course. The Mojo's sounded excellent, and the people running by were definitely pumped up when they heard them. Or maybe it was because there were less than 10 miles left at that point. . .

The weather was much nicer than 2007, which was the coldest marathon start yet. It was in the mid 60s, which was plenty warm for the runners judging by the amount of sweat pouring down their faces.

Elvis even joined the band for a bit
