I am happy to report that I made it through the 10 mile run yesterday!! As I mentioned a while back, I am running my 1st half marathon in November and I've gradually been building up my mileage through the Memphis Road Race Series. Well, yesterday was the 10 miler in Shelby Forest which I was very scared about since 1) I've never run that far and 2) there are some crazy hills there! The weather was great and the scenery was pretty so it made for a good run. Here are some pics.

Later that day my mom and I went to the Vesta Home Show in Germantown. We got to walk through 5 houses that featured top of the line appliances, each furnished by a different furniture store. Here are the houses with some of the features and decor that I liked.
|They all had these mudrooms with little cubby holes|
|Pool with hot tub - I want!|
|Tornado shelter in the garage|
|Loved the wallpaper|
|Great decor from Chestnut Hall|

Friday night after the monsoon came through, I met some friends at Bari in Midtown. I can't believe it was my first time there because it was delish! It reminded me of the Italian restaurants in Italy. We will definitely be back!
