Last month I spent a weekend in Washington DC learning and growing with some of the best people I've ever met. I love being part of an organization that's all about giving back, lifting others up and general overall health and wellness.

Maran and I had the awesome opportunity to head out of town for a work weekend together.
Have you ever heard of the pickle brand "Mount Olive"?
Yep, that's the tiny tiny town we stayed in, haha!!
There's even a pickle festival and one can tour the pickle factory... Who knew?
We made the most out our weekend by grabbing some beers at The Boiler Room, of which was decorated with pallets and had the coolest vibe.
We then headed across the street to The Chef & The Farmer - we knew nothing about this restaurant, but come to find out, it has its own tv show on PBS and is currently in it's 2nd season.
It's so much fun getting to work with friends!
So back when Landon was a month old, he only slept in 30 min - 1 increments at night.
If this sounds like hell... it was!
I was literally up ALL effing night!!
It was totally miserable and I should have been moody and exhausted everyday, but I wasn't.
This little shot of naturally sourced caffeine was my saving grace!
And with no artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners it gave me the energy I needed to get through the day without chewing someone's head off.
And with a baby and a toddler in the house, I still drink half of a bottle a day sometimes!
Trace had his first trip to the doctor for anything other than a wellness visit, and all he wanted was for my dad to hold him, haha!
While I was talking about my superfood on the phone with a sweet friend, Trace took a spill while under my dads watch.
He had a large and compact goose egg on his head.
The doctor said he was fine, thank goodness!

SURE DO LOVE A FRIDAY BIRTHDAY and knowing that Bryan and I didn't have to wait for the weekend to celebrate our little guy together -- donuts, Dan Nicholas Park, lunch on High Rock Lake, pool time, dinner, presents, cake and toys galore -- Trace certainly loved all of the attention on his special day and will be having extra sweet dreams tonight!

My amazing friend who I met through this here blog made ALL of Trace's car dreams come true -- His 1st time to Charlotte Motor Speedway and he basically got VIP treatment and pit passes for the Coca Cola 600 qualifying round and race day. He kept squealing and saying "vroom vroom" the entire way home!! LOVE MY CAR OBSESSED BOY!!!!
The winner of the qualifying round
We got a golf cart ride to our car at the end of the night
