Relay for Life, Make-a-Wish Weekend

It was our community fundraising weekend in Boone! We started on Friday with the Relay for Life, raising money for Cancer research! The theme of our tent with the Chi Omega Sorority of Appalachian State University was Harry naturally, since I was bringing the cutest little mascot in the whole world...he had to dress up like the Harry Potter!

OMG!!! Have you ever seen such a cute Harry Potter impersonator in your life?!?

We had to make a last minute trip to Wal-Mart for some supplies...we turned a lot of heads because our costume was soo accurate!

Sebastian aka Harry Potter, walked the survivor's lap with Aunt Kelly!!! Last year, I was pregnant with the little man during last year's Relay!

It was a good lap!

Harry did not make it all the way through the night but it was ok!

We sold 190 bags of popcorn and Butterbeer (a classic Hogwarts drink). The Chi Omega team raised more than a $1000.00 for Cancer research and the school exceeded its goal of $50,000.00 before the night even kicked off! It was a successful night!!!

The next morning, we met up with Aunt Kelly to get some much needed breakfast at a local joint.

Sebastian enjoyed the Big Boy chair...and the hash browns.

After breakfast we headed over to the Chi Omega Make-a-Wish fundraising Shrimp Boil. The shrimp was quite tasty, a tad spicy but very tasty! We did not stay super long due to thunder and lots of rain, but we enjoyed being out for a GREAT cause!

We played around with the hotel amenities Saturday night! Oh so fabulous, don't you think?

We wanted to participate in the March for Dimes this morning, but due to weather....we had to pass on walking in the rain!
We were happy to finally get home and unpack!
