One of our friends gets a group together every year to walk in the Dallas/Ft. Worth Lymphomathon. "Team Riordan" walks to support the wonderful organization as well as to specifically honor our friend's mother, a proud survivor.

This was our first year to participate, and we are so glad that we did! It's not often that you can hang out with friends, get in some exercise, and support a great cause all at once.

[We couldn't get Ava to look at the camera, because she was too distracted by her "nana."]

The 5K walk was around the Fair Park grounds, and it was interesting to see everything in its non-State Fair state. 

Ava had a lot of fun!

After all that walking, we all rested up a bit while watching the Masters and snacking on some Cheddar Bunnies.

And since we had clearly burned a ton of calories that morning, a trip to Matt's was in order. Ava couldn't get enough of the Bob Armstrong dip, and kept asking for "mo"...she is definitely a Bratton girl :).

About Me

My name is Catherine, but most of my friends call me Cat. I was born and raised in Austin, went to TCU, and ended up in Dallas for law school (where Josh and I met). I decided that being an attorney was not my cup of tea and pursued a career in legal marketing. I am now a mother of two attempting to balance family with a full-time job, which is always an adventure. I love: my sweet babies, handsome husband, very large family, and fabulous friends; trying new restaurants; wine; TCU football; holidays; cooking; The Bar Method; pajamas; Topo Chico; reading; coffee; Central Market; carbs; the beach; mani/pedis; Anthropologie; binge-worthy TV shows and podcasts; trivia; French 75s; Pinterest; cheese boards; The Ticket; dancing; Sprinkles cupcakes; The Texas Rangers; fresh flowers; thunderstorms; naps; Tex-Mex; the Texas Hill Country; porch-sitting; ranch dressing; throwing parties; and my job. I hate: working-mom guilt; snakes; heights; waking up early; ignorant people; stomach bugs; paper cuts; green fruit; snoring; bad hair days; the sound of people eating (Misophonia); scary movies; bad drivers; pulpy OJ; trimming baby fingernails; and Miracle Whip. That pretty much sums it up.
