A Picture Perfect Finish

by Meghann on January 11, 2012

The official race photos from this weekend’s Ragnar Relay are in!

I’m pretty sure no words are necessary for these shots.

My teammates are awesome. That is all.

Official results are in too.

I’m proud of our 94th division finish. Better than 95th. πŸ˜‰

And I KNOW you guys have been waiting for this…..

I finally uploaded my proposal video to YouTube. I had to edit out some indecent exposure (the boys, not mine), this is a family friendly site after all! πŸ˜‰

THANK YOU Nate (Callie’s amazing husband!) for filming!!! He is the best, but I’m pretty sure Callie already knew that. πŸ˜‰

Today’s snack.


Tonight’s dinner.


Chili with acorn and black beans. (After Danielle was tweeting about it on Friday, I got a craving for it.)


Dark chocolate edamame and cherries for dessert!


The cherries are so sweet right now. I’ve almost gone through the whole bag I bought yesterday. Can’t. Stop. Eating. πŸ™‚

Time for bed.

Good Night!

Okay, I am sitting at my desk Meghann all teary! I still remember when you left a comment on my blog way back when:

Submitted on 2009/01/02 at 3:31 pm
A realistic goal for me for January would be to go out on a date. I know that sounds kind of pathetic, but all I am asking for is one date and I don’t even care if it leads anywhere, I just need to get out of the house…lol….

And here you are 3 years later engaged – woot!! Congratulations to you both!
