All Shook Up!

This weekend was our local Chamber's Annual Banquet.  Part of my job is to decorate a table for our company.  This is always one of the most fun events as I love party planning and decorating.  This year's theme is "All Shook Up."
Of course I started hunting on Pinterest for ideas and created a board.  
What did we do before Pinterest?
I purchased most the decor at different party stores in Texas.  My mom is always great help and goes around shopping with me!  My boss' wife embroidered our chair covers and we get to reuse them each year.  We added the pink scarfs with iron-on poodles this year to embrace the 1950s.    
Each guest at your table gets a take home gift.  I purchased the pink Cadillacs off Etsy.  Source
We filled the Cadillacs with Elvis' favorites: Pepsi, donuts, etc...  We also included a gift certificate to American Implement in a "Thank you, thank you very much" card.
I took these pictures before all the other tables were decorated but we ended up with some great tables.  A local bank took the coveted table topper award for the best table - I'm not going to lie I was a bit depressed on Saturday evening.  Our's was great but that gives you an idea of the competition! :)
I picked up Keeler early from his Granny's so he could come help us decorate.  He loved it!  He decorated this pole while were where there.  Then we un-decorated it, ha!
As promised, I said I was going to blog about my "Best Shape by 30" Goal.  
This past week = Epic Failure.  
Not only could I not keep out of the Girl Scout cookies I failed miserably at running.  Late last week I started having pain after running in my upper thigh.  It was affecting most my daily movements and I was getting very stiff.  Worst of all, I was limping around like a 30 90 year old.  I decided to rest on Wednesday thinking I'd be back good to go on Thursday.  When I got on the treadmill  on Thursday my body was yelling at me, "You can't run!"  I listened and stuck to walking.  Then reached out to my running friends for advice and they also suggested resting or biking.  I was told I might have a weak glute?  I got out Saturday and managed to wog a few miles with little pain afterwards.  Sunday was family day.  I really needed a day with my cowboys and didn't want to think about training.  I'll do a Sunday recap post soon - we had one of the best days!  
The main thing I want to stress is I am not giving up on my goal.  My body is feeling better so we'll see where this week takes us.
