After a bit of a blogging break, I am back with a recap of my Memorial Day weekend.
For the fifth consecutive year, I headed to Indianapolis for my family’s tradition of attending the Indianapolis 500 race. My mom (and her siblings) grew up in Indy and the race was a huge part of their childhood – so we continue to go today!
The night before the race is always a fun one. All of us get dressed up and head into downtown Indy for dinner at Mo’s Steakhouse. This is always my favorite part of the weekend! The food has never been anything less than spectacular! In previous years, we’ve even spotted some D list celebrities at Mo’s (Jared the Subway Guy, Christina Millian) but this year I didn’t spot anyone! Oh well, maybe next year 😀
Race day was pretty much the same as last year; however, the weather was SO much cooler! I can honestly say that I preferred it this way. Hot weather makes for a miserable walk to the track and an even more miserable five hours in the scorching sun! Thank you clouds!

There’s not much left to say about the weekend other than it ended too soon.
