Deployment Project #70 a Weekend Recap!

A quick deployment project and recap of my weekend...

Deployment Project # 70
Car Seat Cover


Photobucket

My sister in law needed me to make one of these for a friend's baby. These car seat covers are fantastic!!

This is an example of what they look like when on the car seat....

The cover I made is for a baby who's gender is unknown (don't know how you "don't find out people" wait that long...haha), so I made this as unisex as I could.

And now for my weekend.....

One of my best friend's and I participated in our first Mud Run this past Saturday. 

Talk about fun!

We did the Rugged Maniac

It's a 5k race with 14 obstacles throughout....and there's no way to escape getting muddy.

Here is the BEFORE we got muddy picture...

This picture was in the paper this morning. Out of the thousands of contestants, I somehow made it in the newspaper. Pretty funny if you ask me. 

That's me on the left  in the pink shirt daintily making my way across the poles.

My other running friends ran it with me....we are all moms who meet twice a week to run together.  It was fun to have this group of friends to do this mud run with!!

My friend, Kym and I are showing off our muddy legs! I haven't been this muddy since playing in the mud as a child!

It's safe to say my shoes and socks are ruined!!!...and I can't get the mud out of my toes.....Looks like I am headed to the nail salon for a pedi TOMORROW!!!!!

THEN, on Saturday night we headed to a ROLLER DERBY match!!!

Photobucket

This was our first experience in roller derby....

Did you even know they had leagues out there for this?!?!?

The girls were sooo excited...

These girls were brutal!!!!! I was just waiting on someone to break a leg....

The kids got to run off a little energy at intermission....Miss B was so excited to be out there like the big girls...

One of the roller derby girls is the sister in law to a friend of ours, so the girls got to take a picture with her. They were starstruck!

And no weekend would be complete without chatting with this hunky hot hubby of mine on Skype.

Good gosh, I love this man of mine!

This deployment just seems to D-R-A-G on and on....

Seeing his sweet face, and not being able to reach out and touch him, breaks my heart at times.

It's been a LONG 11 months since he left for this deployment.

We have just 13 weeks left until he's home....

so close, yet so far away....

But he can't come home yet, I  have to get 30 more deployment projects done to make my goal of 100!!!!

EEEEEKKKK, I better get on the ball!

Be back tomorrow with more stuff to share!

Hope you all had a greet weekend!
