If you don't know know, I'm a huge supporter of finding a cure for breast cancer, so beginning in September, Shauna and I attended a cupcake competition that benefited the local Susan G. Komen foundation. We each were able to try 10 cupcakes and vote for the best taste and display. Low and behold, both that I voted for won! An apple-Heath-chocolate cupcake won and I think it did being so different than all the other pink cupcakes there.
Then on Sept. 26th, Shauna, Jeff, my mom and I participated in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. Over 16,000 people participated this year, which was an astronomical increase over years past. It was amazing to see so many people supporting the cause. Next year, I may even run the race!
Okay - now into October!!! On Oct. 2nd - Farm Aid came to Milwaukee and I just had to go. This was my chance to see Dave Matthews for the year and be apart of history. Kacey treated us to steaks and potato packets. Minus the rain, it was a great time with tailgating, meeting up with old friends and enjoying great music with a great message. Dave definitely stole the show as I knew he would. But Miller Park is not acoustically sound for concerts, so if you go, get lower seats than nose-bleed, so you don't go deaf or get a headache from reverberations.As you can see, we were really high up and can you believe that just 3 Brewers handle all that outfield where all those people are sitting!!??
After dinner, I met up with Tiffany in downtown Waukesha and we split a bottle of Kenwood Cabernet Sauvignon at Generations at 5 Points. On Tuesdays, they have 1/2 price bottles on certain wines. It was a great way to catch up with her and the wine was delicious. Just as we were finishing the wine, we decided to head over to The Nice Ash for a night cap with Kacey, Jimmy and Jeff. That bar is really growing on me now that its only cigar smoke inside. They had Live Rockband going and Tiffany played guitar for a few of the songs. It was a fun way to end my birthday night!
There is so much more to talk about after, but I'll save that for another post...Thanks for reading!
