And somehow we have made it to Sunday night once again.  Alex is at Live School, and I am home alone watching football (why?) But did anyone see that Panthers v. Bears game this afternoon.  I wanted to shut it off half a dozen times, but I am so thankful I stuck it out to the finish! Go Bears!

The rest of our weekend was just as much fun.  Friday night we were quite the busy bees.  Starting with a stop at Melisa's for a quick catch up, followed by dinner and a meeting with some church friends, and ending finally with the football game at Lake Norman High School.
We have two high schools in our small town, and they have a long-standing rivalry.  It was fun to watch Lake Norman beat Mooresville (although we didn't stick around long enough to enjoy the nail-biting overtime win!)

Saturday morning Alex ran the Pumpkin Run 8k.
This race is an annual tradition for us, although this year I cheered from the sidelines rather than run.  True to form, Alex placed in his age group once again and walked away with a shiny new medal!
It was really sad not to be able to run.  I love being a spectator and cheerleader at races, but not ones that I typically run.  Next weekend I will be cheering him on during the Rock N' Read 5k, another race I love to run every year.  It was hard to be cheerful but I was excited when Alex set a new PR, even if it was without me!
Following the Pumpkin Run, we got all "dolled up" and headed to Charlotte for maternity photos.  (More on that later in the week!)  And then much later we enjoyed a bonfire with friends.
A long, but very fun day! And I knocked another item off of my Fall Bucket List.
Things on the list we may not get to: Renaissance Festival and maybe the weekend in the mountains.  Otherwise, we are making excellent progress.

Well Sunday was like most other Sundays around here: church and football.  One big exception this weekend was no grocery shopping.  We are living off the pantry until payday!

And now Monday is upon us and time to start another week.  How was your weekend?
