At 10am on the 4th of July, a lovely group of ladies gathered for... wait for it... the 1st Annual 4th of July Mimosa 10k Fun Run! We ran 6.2 miles (exactly - it was totally a certified course!) together along the beautiful banks of Lake Washington.
Our run was sponsored by Cook's Champagne. And when I say "sponsored", I mean I bought these ginormous bottles at Costco.
We even had a cheering squad - Becky and Ada cheered us on from the road as we passed!
Here's the photo Becky took of us dominating the race. This was the non-scenic section.
After the run, we proceeded to potluck picnic in style - with mimosas (of course - hello, mimosas sponsored our race!), delicious blueberry buckle (aka coffee cake - thanks Lindsay!) wonderful pasta salads, scrumptious monkey bread (though not ever to be termed monkey bread - thanks Becky!), fruit kabobs, and everything else wonderful (I ran out of adjectives synonymous with delicious!) under the moon.

I even made this new dip Megan told me about: Funfetti Cake Dip! Love it. All it is is a funfetti cake mix, cool whip, and plain yogurt! That's IT! Now that's my kind of recipe. Although next time I would use more cool whip and less yogurt and / or try using vanilla yogurt instead of plain. The yogurt taste came through and I didn't really like that. Dip with fruit and animal crackers!
And overall, I'd say the 1st Annual 4th of July Mimosa 10k Fun Run was a complete and utter SUCCESS. Come back next year ladies!

Except next year - let's remember sunscreen.
Yep, that's my back. I heard racerback tan lines are in this year.
How was your 4th of July? What did you do?
