12 miles

This weekend has been so busy.  I didn't even have time to think.  Fridays workout consisted of a Jillian workout x2.  I always feel like I get such a great workout when I do her workout twice.  I skipped cardio because I was planning on a run the next morning.  Jillian is basically cardio though.  C'mon.

Bfast was a blender bottle shake and some eggs.  Bleh....but it filled up my belly and I was in a hurry to get the little one off to her Halloween festivities at school.

This year L wanted to be a zebra and O a giraffe.  What?  So I put my brain to work to come up with a couple costumes.  They turned out better than I had hoped so I am not complaining.

Yes, my house is messy.  Get over it.

My favorite part of their costumes was their hoofs and the mane down the back of the shirt.  They loved them and have had so much fun prancing around in them.

O had a preschool program where they sang and did actions.  It was adorable.  This is her with her cousin Lily and friend Liza.

She loves cotton candy.  I tried to get out the door without her seeing it but she pulled me over to the cotton candy booth.  For real....pulled me there.

Saturday morning I met my sister for a run.  We ended up doing twelve miles.  Uphill pretty much the whole way.  Our down was basically a quarter mile straight down.  Oh was a fabulous workout and good conversations as always.  She is trying to talk me into a marathon.  I say yes if it isn't a registered race.  It takes all the fun out for me if I have to train instead of just going out for a long run.  I'm crazy I guess.  Maybe one day,  :)

Pre-run in the dark and the freezing cold.  Drink that up sista....your going to need it.

Afterwards we went over to my other sisters house to deep clean it for her.  I brought some protein powder for a quick pick me up after our run.  And extra clothes to change into so I didn't freeze.  It was my sisters birthday and she wanted her house deep cleaned for her present.  She thought we were hiring someone to come do it but we just did it ourselves so we could get her other presents as well.  Her husband got her out of the house and we came in and busted it out.  Walls, windows, fans, baseboards, was a clean house fo sho!

Mom looks pooped!  No resting woman...back to work!

I didn't get home till after eleven.  My body needed some food!!!  The hubs made me a breakfast burrito that I inhaled.  He takes care of me.  :)

We went up to Joey's sister house for a Halloween party on Saturday night.  So you get more pics of my kids in their costumes.  I dressed up for the kids and it was worth it.  They loved my costumes.  Me and the hubs were the only adults dressed up.  Cuz were the cool ones.  :)

Don't be jealous ladies.  It's all mine.  He cooks, he cleans, and he has white thighs to die for.   He made some killer chili and appetizers for the shindig.  He is a naughty me.

My little zookeeper would not let me get any pictures of him the little stink.  But he looked adorable.

I could eat whatever I wanted in this costume and still feel like my pants were fittin a little loose.  It was awesome.

Uh-huh...that's right.

We took all the kids on a hayride.  Joey might have had hay in weird places after.  I've got hay in low places where get it right?  Wow...past my bedtime. 

These were the killer appetizers hubs spent all afternoon while I was at a cookie decorating party with the girls.  Thanks Suzanne!  These are dates, cut in half, filled with blue cheese, wrapped in bacon, and broiled.  Weird?  Yes....but absolutely amazing.  

Some of the spread.... we also had baked potatoes, chili, mummy dogs, and mozzarella eyeballs.

The barfing pumpkin.  They made this guacamole healthy style by using avocados and lots of Lima beans.  It was really, really, good.

My MIL made this cute owl cookies.  Aren't they adorable.  The kiddos love them.  My sis in law made the little witch hats in the background.  So cute.  I skipped these treats and headed straight for this....

Pumpkin cake with ice cream.  Delicious.  It made my day.  I tried to stay awake to watch Strange Brew...yes, Strange Brew with the hubs but crashed pretty hard in about ten minutes.  Sorry babe.  Happy Halloween tomorrow!!!!
