Sunday was a beautiful day! My friend Ems* agreed to walk with me at the March of Dimes March for Babies walk. I had a great time catching up with her. This is a picture of us at the start of the race. Ems is proudly showing off her beads that symbolize that she is walking for her future babies. :)

Here we are at the end of the walk**. We made it! I was worried beforehand that I wouldn't succeed, but it was so easy walking with a fun friend.

We also met a lot of other cool bloggers (like mooshinindy, designhermomma, theotherjackson5, TheMomExperience, ordinarysarah, karensugarpants, and many others***).

It was a great experience walking for such a great cause. Maddie touched many lives and I hope that the money raised from these walks will help other families not have to go through what Maddie's mom and dad have.

I heard on the news that Indy raised over $125,000 for the March of Dimes! Go Indy!

* Ems said I couldn't link to her blog if I posted a picture of her. Since I posted 2, I figured I really better not. She's convinced these pictures are horrible. I think they're great, so I'm hoping she changes her mind and lets me link! UPDATE: Ems posted a comment so she inadvertantly linked back to her blog, so I went ahead and made it easier by linking above too!

** Okay, so we're also cracking up because we made theotherjackson5 re-do the picture she originally took of us. We were horrified about the # of chins in the picture. Let's just say there were more chins than people... not a good thing! I think this is the longest my neck has ever looked in a picture. Tyra would be so proud.

*** If I met you at the walk but don't have you listed, let me know your blog address, and I'll add you!

UPDATE: karensugarpants kindly sent me this group photo. I think it makes the post more complete.

added to your life, your blog

You guys look beautiful! I was proud to walk with you - I wish we had chatted more but I was feeling kinda shy and emotional. :)

If you watch my video, and can tell me what it's about, then you can link :-) (But all I can think is OMG - WHO is that fat chick that Chris walked with?!)

ems said...

Hold up - I just linked to my blog by posting a comment. Shoot. Outsmarted again! :-)

Bwahahaha! Yes, I'm now modifying my post to put a direct link to your blog! Hee hee hee.

And I promise I'll watch your video too!

Love the photos! So nice meeting you on Sunday. We should get some of these nice Indy bloggers together again someday.

HEE! I like the poodle in the background, and I too have many pictures with a very looong neck. ;)
