Sweet weekend! On Saturday, I watched Jason, Marc, and Stash compete in the Full moon Vista cyclocross race at Ellison Park, though I guess in retrospect I really should have carved out some time for Fight Gone Bad, as I'm getting sh*t for not participating. (sorry!) But the bike race was so exciting! After hearing about cross racing for years from Jordan I have finally seen it for myself! If I had a million dollars- or just a couple thousand- I would definitely buy a bike and join them. Actually, let's be honest; I'd buy a new kayak first and then a cross bike.

Here I am with Coby, Jason's dog, who was my best friend while Jason was out racing.

When not watching races, I was reading Gone With the Wind. Can you believe I have never read it before? Since I just finished Moby Dick and Anna Karenina, I thought Gone With the Wind would be a nice change of pace. I'm in love. Last night I dug out my down comforter from the closet, opened my window to let in the cold air, turned on my christmas lights, and sat engulfed in blanket and engrossed in my book for 3 hours. *swoon*

The other awesome part of the weekend was my sister Anna, who came home from college for a visit! I love when my whole family is together. We went apple picking. If you can correctly guess the number of pounds of apples we picked, you win a prize. (Hint: it's well over 25lbs.)

Also, if anyone would like to buy a delicious, homemade apple pie, I am making them for $12. Proceeds benefit my Olympic journey! Email me at emily [dot] mary [dot] wright [at] gmail [dot] com!

Why my my! What a prolix email address you have there. I would like 50,000 pies.

Considering the average apple weighs 5 oz, and there are 6-8 apples in a pie...

I hope you picked somewhere between 93,750 - 125,000 pounds of apples. I won't settle for less than 50,000 pies, so if you don't have enough apples, I'm sorry, I'm not interested.

I'll email you my contact information, and we can hammer out our business deal.

How many apples?!? I bet it's like 40 pounds!

p.s. I love that you have your coffee cup! mmm COFFEE

Anon, I would be honored to bake you 50,000 pies. What's your time frame for delivery? For example, would you take a pie a day for the next 137 years? Or how about a steady stream of pies-- if it takes me an hour to make each one, I could provide you with an hourly pie for the next 5.7 years.
