Movember - Day 30

This is it!! The LAST day of Movember! Nate has come a long way with his 'stache and I think he is getting pretty excited to say goodbye to the little fella. He has actually said that whoever donates can give suggestions on how he can shave it off and he will do it, no matter how ridiculous! Anything for the cause, right?

And speaking of donations, we received 3 more yesterday!! Thanks to Katie ConCon, Malia and Lisa for your support!

Movember - Day 28

It's a rainy day in Nashville, and the 3rd to last day of Movember for Nate! He's done a great job with the 'stache and has helped us raise some more money for Team G Shock in the process! So far this month we have raised almost $600, and still have a few more days to add to that total! Each donation helps bring the Prostate Cancer Foundation one step closer to a cure, so thank you all for everything that you have done to help!

Movember - Day 27

Its day 27 and we are headed back to Tennessee. We had a wonderful weekend in Minnesota with family and friends and even got a couple of donations! I think Nate's family got a kick out of the 'stache and I KNOW Nate is excited to shave it at the end of this week! We only have a few days left so if you're feeling generous, please consider donating to the cause!

Movember - Day 26

Its Day 26. We have had a wonderful holiday in Minnesota. We did Christmas last night with Nate's family since we won't be here and got some wonderful gifts. One of our favorite gifts was from Nate's sister (see the photo below), and this gift (along with a donation from his Grandma) brings us up to 15 donations for Movember!

Only a few days left in the month and then Nate finally gets to shave the 'stache!

Movember - Day 25

Its Day 25, the day after Thanksgiving, and the 'stache is tired! We had a great day with Nate's family and friends yesterday and have already consumed our first plate of Turkey Day leftovers (yum!).

Movember - Day 24

Happy Thanksgiving and Day 24 of Movember! :) We are spending the day with Nate's family in Minnesota, while my family celebrates in Virginia and West Virginia. My job this year was to make the pies and I am happy to say that they are officially done!

Geoff and Dad ran a turkey trot together this morning and Drew ran one too (his second race ever!). We will post pictures and results from that soon!

Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and takes some time to be with family. We are thankful for so much this year-including the support we receive for Team G Shock!

Happy Turkey Day!

Movember - Day 23

It's day 23, which also happens to be the day before Thanksgiving! I can't believe its almost the end of Movember, where has the time gone? So far this month, we have received 13 donations totaling almost $600! I think we can do a little better though, so keep those donations coming our way!

We're heading to see Nate's family & friends this weekend in Minnesota, which should be a very fun time. We have a challenge for all Towne extended family members and other Minnesota friends...for every comment you make that makes fun of Nate and his 'stache, you have to donate $5. :) I really am so proud of Nate for going through with this for Team G Shock and you should be too! But, if you want to tease him, that's ok, just be prepared to donate to the cause!

We also want to point out that it is our dear friend (and Framily member) Megan's birthday today!! :) We're hoping to get to see her in Minnesota of all places to celebrate once we get up there! Happy Birthday friend - have a wonderful day!

Movember - Day 22

22 days in to Movember and we're so close to our Team G Shock goal! Nate is looking good and we're excited to share the 'stache with his family over Thanksgiving.

In other, much more exciting than a mustache news, our dear friends Scott & Rachel (who we were visiting until Sunday) welcomed their sweet new baby boy into the world yesterday! :) We just missed him, but are so happy he is here and that mom & baby are safe and healthy!!

Movember - Day 21

Only 9 days left in Movember - its hard to believe! We had a loooong end to a great weekend with about 8 hours spent in Chicago's Midway airport yesterday - whew. But it was mostly worth it for the time we got to spend with friends who live much too far away.

We're reallllly close to our Team G Shock goal of $6,000. I think we can get even closer in the next week and a half, don't you?

Movember - Day 20

What a weekend! We had a ton of fun at Sara and Justin's wedding AND we got to spend some quality time with the Bradleys!

The 'stache is going strong with only 10 days left! We're pretty close to our goal-who thinks we can reach it?!

Saturday, November 19, 2011

Movember - Day 19

We're in Pittsburgh to see our friends Houser and Justin get hitched and to visit with the Bradleys. The 'stache is a big hit so far, cant wait to see it hit the dance floor!

Friday, November 18, 2011

Movember - Day 18

18 days in to this thing, and Nate has quite the 'stache. We're headed to a wedding this weekend and I can't wait for some of our friends to check it out in person!

On a separate, but just as important note, today is my brother Drew's birthday! Happy birthday, brudder! Hope you enjoy your day!

Movember - Day 17

We got to take the 'stache out on the town last night to see "Memphis" at TPAC which was INCREDIBLE. If you have the chance to see it, do. And the good news is there were a good number of men with mustaches in attendance so Nate didn't stick out at all! :)

It's officially Day 17, and thanks to the generosity of lots of friends (most recently Allison and Matt & Kim Walzer) we are up to 13 donations!

Movember - Day 16

Its another rainy day in Nashville, but that can't bring Team G Shock down! Its Day 16, and we received donations yesterday bringing our Movember donations up to 11! A big thank you to friends near & far for their help yesterday - Tami P, The Bradleys, Trina & The Walkers. You all rock!

Those donations also helped us reach a HUGE milestone for Team G Shock. After 29 months, 28 races and a mustache we have raised over $5000!!! That is incredible, especially considering our original goal was $1500. I can't wait to see how far we can take this with all of your help!

Ta-Da! Look at that 'stache :)

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

Movember - Day 15

Even a rainy day can't bring this 'stache down. Its officially the half-way point. Nate has been getting more and more inquiries, which is awesome. Here's hoping for more and more donations to Team G Shock as well!

Monday, November 14, 2011

Movember - Day 14

Almost halfway done with the month. I think its almost time for Nate to pick a 'stache and start styling, what about you? :)

Sunday, November 13, 2011

Movember - Day 13

I am back from an amazing girls weekend and the 'stache is better than I remembered.

Saturday, November 12, 2011

Movember - Day 12

Its Day 12. Nate is at home winning the best husband award for taking care of our puppy who ate (yet another) toy, while I sit at the edge of a bluff in the mountains with some of my best girl friends. This is the life.

Nate's view...

My view :)

Movember - Day 11

Its Day 11 and Nate is giving Tom Selleck some competition for sure.

More important than Day 11 of Movember, its Veteran's Day today. Take some time to say THANKS to a Veteran or current soldier that you know. I want to take a moment to say my first thank you to my Dad. Not only is he the inspiration for Team G Shock, but he is a proud Veteran of the United States Army. Thanks for all you have done and still do, Dad! :)

Movember - Day 10

It's Day 10, and Nate and his 'stache are looking good! We had some fun at various CMA festivities last night, and the 'stache was a hit. On top of helping us raise money for the PCF, its a pretty good conversation starter.

It's almost time for Nate to decide how he would like to style his 'mo. Any thoughts??

Wednesday, November 9, 2011

Movember - Day 9

Its Day 9, we're up to 7 donations, and Nate has a 'stache for sure by now. Thanks to the Isaacs' family and Patricia Townsley for donating to the cause yesterday!

We're off to some CMA parties tonight and I can't wait to see if people ask Nate about his mustache. At least it will make for some fun photo opportunities...

Tuesday, November 8, 2011

Movember - Day 8

Nate has been getting asked questions like "why are you growing a mustache?" which must mean it has grown in enough for people to notice! :)

The donation count is up to 5 thanks to Nate's Uncle Dan - well on our way to reaching our goal for the Prostate Cancer Foundation!

Monday, November 7, 2011

Movember - Day 7

Day 7, 1 week down. We are officially past the point of stubble and on the way to a real life 'stache. Can't wait to see what it will look like when we're visiting with family & friends later this month!

Sunday, November 6, 2011

Movember - Day 6

We're up to 4 donations for Movember (thanks Mom & Dad Towne), and still have 24 days to go! We're off to see "Wicked" tonight and I can't wait for the rest of Nashville to check out Nate's sweet 'stache.

Saturday, November 5, 2011

Movember - Day 5

5 days in, 25 to go! We're up to 3 donations so far (yay!). Two more came in yesterday from our dear friends Chris & Lauren and our sweet neighbors Jay & Alison! Thanks for the support so far!!

Friday, November 4, 2011

Movember - Day 4

Today is officially Day 4 and not only does Nate have the beginnings of a mighty fine 'stache, but we got our FIRST DONATION! Thanks to my coworker and our friend, DW, for donating to the cause! Here's to a month full of hairy upper lips and money for the PCF!

Thursday, November 3, 2011

Movember - Day 3

Nate thinks it looks like he has dirt on his face, I think it looks like the beginnings of the greatest Movember 'stache ever.

Wednesday, November 2, 2011

Movember - Day 2

It's Day 2. The first day of shaving his face, minus the stache. I think its coming in nicely, don't you? :)

Don't forget to visit our donation page to help us raise money for the PCF!

Movember - Day 1

As promised, photos and updates will be posted as often as possible. So without further ado, I bring you...Day 1.

The first day.

Today is the first day of something very important. No, not November, the 11th month of the year, the month filled with turkey and stuffing and pies, the month full of football Saturdays & Sundays. Its the first day of MOVEMBER!

For those of you that don't know what Movember is, its the month formerly known as November. The difference here is that it requires men who choose to be involved in it to grow a mustache. Not a beard, not a goatee, a full-blown mustache. The rules are that participants must start clean shaven today, November 1st, and shave and trim their way to an amazing mustache by the end of the month.

I think I'm going to need to get some of these (

Nate is dedicating his face to raise awareness for men's health and all I have to do is put up with the mustache that he will grow. :) I knew I loved him, but when I said "would you do this for Team G Shock?" and he immediately said "ok!" I was reminded of why I fell for him.

As always, we're not doing this just for fun, although I bet there will be some fun times along the way. We've officially raised our goal AGAIN to double our 2nd goal (which we absolutely smashed last year). We're now shooting for $6,000 for Team G Shock and the Prostate Cancer Foundation.

We were destined for Movember

Any support you can give is always appreciated. My mom has even pledged $5/day for every day that my Dad DOES shave so she doesn't have to put up with a mustache :) (I'm not sure I'm prepared for this).

Visit our donation page if you like, and keep checking back here on the blog for updates (and photos of course) of Nate's progress!
