so ya yesterday’s post was a bit heavy….but what did we learn from it??? – oh yes, when you crave a loaf of bread during pregnancy DON’T eat it ALL at once! you’re just kidding yourself if you think it’s “all baby” – it’s not.
I don’t even know what I want this post to be about. I know people (other bloggers) tell you it’s better to have quality over quantity but that’s just not my style! Here on RwS you can anticipate lots and lots of meaningless posts. It’s the only way I know I’m establishing a loyal readership. I already know which of you are reading this now, loving every second of it and which one’s have already exited the page – well have a nice day!! but just know that you may or may not be missing some random stories of Logan, delicious treats /w links and quite possibly more about ME 😉
So cue random musings….
Remember THESE ??? well I sure do… they are the cupcake version of a coffee-lovers dream come true. So if you’d like to tackle these Mocha Cupcakes /w Espresso Buttercream you can visit THIS blog and try it for yourself!
|ya mom, I just realized if I dig my fingers down into this stuff I can grab it and eat it.|
On Sunday after my run /w my cousin AND after getting back from the Nike Factory Outlet /w my new running outfit. What’s that?? you didn’t get to see my outfit?? you want a link to the post where I talked about it?? – sorry I posted a pic of me in the outfit for my facebook friends to comment away on. Don’t worry you can add me HERE so you don’t miss out next time 😉
Anyway, after I came home I found Colin cleaning out the shed and finally installing the floor for it. YAY!!!
WARNING!!! gross pic below…blog stalk at your own risk.
This is why we needed a floor instead of cardboard. EW do I spy a mouse skeleton?!?! ….yes, yes I do. The funniest thing is that Colin didn’t even see this. The cardboard was neatly piled beside the picnic table and when I walked by I spotted it. YUCK!
|this thing doesn’t drive itself mom.|
So wagon rides around the backyard it was! The fun thing about this activity was when I got in /w Lo and Colin pulled us around the yard super fast. I now understand what all the wagon rage is about; they are AWESOME!!!! (sorry there are no pics of me in the wagon. Colin is not a photographer and I have to beg, beg, BEG him for every photo posted on the blog) – you’re welcome!
|my hair looks like a powder puff…sun-tot esq for sure!|
My monday run (as those of you on dailymile & twitter already know) went pretty good, well actually GREAT. I did 3.25 miles in 30 mins!!! WOOHOO 😀 9:18 pace Yo! that’s pretty good for a newbie that is me!
Yesterday I had to be a wife and mother in the most traditional sense of the title. I did laundry and Logan helped me fold….aka he did count-down jumps into the pile of clean clothes. Thanks
We built towers…well he did and destroyed my living room. One day Colin will finish my basement and on that day and I will bow down to the heavens and thank God for the miracle he has bestowed upon me. even though I’m not religious. That is how exciting that day will be!
A few night ago I tried to tackle my Aunt Mary’s amazing pumpkin cookie recipe that she posted on that scary alone night post a while back. I screwed them up big time. I ended up /w more of a batter than a dough. So I improvised and pulled out the muffin tin and little mermaid cupcake papers (yes I am that cool) and decided to turn them into muffins. The first batch turned out amazing so I chopped an apple I had on hand and threw the chunks into the second batch. Delish!
|Logan likes them so much he jumps up and down while eating them.|
They turned out pretty tasty I think I should screw up recipes more often! Although I still want to tackle those pumpkin cookies /w the glaze sometime in the near future. Pumpkins are in season after all. We are going to pick some this weekend! (we are Colin)
Well I guess that about sums up the parts of my life you missed over the past few days. I’m glad you are all up to date now. I am going to have a quiz at some point to identify who actually reads these ramblings. The prize will be something cool I promise.
|I can’t get enough of these mom|
Today I clean the house b/c we have company from out of town tomorrow. Tonight I work till close. I must also try to fit in some speed work as well. Wish me luck 😀 I love you guys! you are so awesome Thanks for reading.
PS: you may or may not have noticed that my favicon is a yingyang symbol. – cool b/c it represents balance but lame on a running/cooking/ranting blog. So keep watch b/c I made myself the cutest little girl drawing holding spatulas…..it’ll be hard to see but I imagine it’ll switch over sometime soon!!! YAY
1. which was your favourite paragraph (if we can even call them that) and why??
– see I’m sneaky it is a mini-quiz
2. What did you get up to last night??
3. I didn’t really talk about it but I am wondering at what point in your millage increase did your body start to hate you??
– after my tempo 3 miler /w lyndz and then the race pace 3.25 miler the very next day my legs hated me is that normal???
