Cowgirl Cake, Baseball Baby Shower & A Marathon

I have been a busy little bee this week.

Friday night I had a little moment.  I started to think I was doing to much.

Everything that could have happened in this week DID!  The hubs working late, the cake/cupcake orders coming in, working my regular schedule which was busier than normal, kids with school, preschool cancelled, Visiting Teaching (last week of the month and I'm "that" person), carb loading lunch with the team, oh yeah, and did I mention the ST. GEORGE MARATHON on Saturday?

Slightly overwhelming week, but oh so worth every minute!

Every task was accomplished and for the most part, right on time!

I got the order for a pink and white cowgirl boot cake.  In my mind I knew what I wanted to do.  I am in love with how it turned!  The birthday girl requested white cake with buttercream frosting. Yu hum!

Baseball Baby Shower for Baby Liam!  Red Velvet cake with buttercream...Delish!
The cake is my fav!

Leann, Shay, Me and Shaunna

Waiting for the patty wagon to take us to the start line.   Yep, perks of being cops wives.  We didn't have to wait for the buses to shuttle us.

Crossing the finish line.  One of the most amazing experiences ever.
You can't see it, but I had used my Cricut and vinyl to put this saying on the back of my shirt...

Because I Can

Being my 2nd time running a full marathon, I knew I could do it.  We (Shay and I) had probably 50-60 runners comment and tell us they LOVED our shirts!  Yeah, we're cool like that!

Me and Shay at the finish.  I am so lucky for great running friends.  She is what keeps me going and keeps me sane.  When I want to quit, she reminds me I can finish.  Running takes a physical toll, but a mental one as well.  I am lucky to have Shay to pull me along.

Nicely done. I still think you are slightly mental running that far, and your second time to boot! No, in all honesty, you are amazing and incredible. Because YOU can!

You can (and do) do a lot of hard things. You're pretty awesome and such a huge inspiration in my life. Love you!

What a superb Cowgirl Cake, Baseball Baby Shower! And the marathon experience also looks nice. Thanks for the details. I just fall in love with the pink theme for the bash and would like to use some of these inspirations for my sister in law’s baby shower. Now just need to find one of the suitable Chicago venues.
