The Weekend in Pictures

As promised, here are some pics from this weekend, beginning with Dev's birthday dinner. Of course, I had to start with a picture of my main man, Baby Nolan.

His mommy's been spending as much time on his hair as I do on mine.

Case in point on the hair issue. I got to keep him on my lap and feed him dinner. Little dude made quite a mess.

Ellie's been getting back in fighting form since the Big Guy's birth. She's looking incredible these days, and she wants you all to know it.


Dev's cake. Note the blue frosting. It's important for later...
Making a wish...

Guess who stole everyone's extra frosting? Hey, I ran five miles after this, so I needed the carbs...

First shot at the bachelorette party - We had a champagne and lingerie party at the hotel downtown (all the girls were from Tennessee so they were staying downtown - pretty swanky). Here's Ellie doing bartending duty. She actually organized a ton of this weekend, so hat's off to her!
Aren't my sisters beautiful? This was at the restaurant, Uncle Julio's Hacienda. Other than the fact that we sat at the table next to Rex Grossman (Bears quarterback, and no, I was not so lame as to take pictures of him like a tourist...I just stared repeatedly) I am afraid my story with this party ends here, because I went home after dinner, while they all went out to the Baton Club. Don't know what that is? Look it up - let's just say drunk girls and transvestites make for a fun night. Or so I hear...

This picture is actually for Ellie, who completely ridiculed me for taking a picture of myself. But in my defense, I feel like I need to document this whole IM journey, and on this particular day, I felt pretty strong (we all know how rare that is these days), and wanted to remember that feeling. This is me, off the bike. I've taken to wearing a visor these days. Helps with the sweat. How I ever lived without one I will never know.
So that's that. I told you - kinda tame. I guess that's what happens when you turns 31, your life revolves around sugar and training, and you have to be in bed by 10pm.

Tough!

I like the visors too! During IM Lou though I had to wear a hat so I could put ice in it...so hot! Hopefully that is one thing you won't have to worry about in AZ!

I didnt ridicule you for taking one picture of yourself, I ridiculed you for taking TWENTY pictures of yourself. Truth be told, if my body were as hot as yours, I would have taken fifty, and every one would have been in my birthday suit!
