Justin the Elf arrives

Today was busy busy. Got a lot ton.

I was not feeling the gym AT ALL this morning. Time to run errands instead. First was walgreens for a return. My parents to look at the ads in the newspaper.

Target. I got WAY too much stuff.  A lot of xmas stuff and I am looking for CHEAP riding boots. I love these from target, but I cant find them and they don’t sell them online 😦

Also, tried Macy’s w/ no luck. But I did get Andrew a lot of xmas gifts so I guess it all worked out.

By the time I got home, it was time for lunch! Quick snack and then gym!

 The gym was ok . nothing special, but I should have worked out harder.

Shower and then got Andrew from school.

While making dinner, the kitchen was a diaster!

 Dinner was pork tenderloin w/ peppers and some cheese. A side of greek yogurt and granola and grapes

 Of course, our household got a visitor!

 Have you heard of this before? Well the kids name the Elf. And each night he goes to tell Santa if you were good or bad. Then he flies back and is found in a different spot. Then in the morning the kids have to find the new spot. You can make some pretty funny ones!








(seriously check out pinterest has a ton of pictures!)

So far Andrew is having a blast w/ it (and me too!)

Meet Justin Richards the Elf

 We found him watching tv in MY spot haha.

My best friend/cousin Jill got this for Andrew, and I will keep you updated on his locations! haha

(notice: I did MUCH better on the food front! YEA me! haha)

Question for you:

Have you heard of Elf on the Shelf? Do you do it for your kids?

Are you getting ready for the Christmas?

halloween cake!

hello blogging friends!!! Im sorry I have been MIA this week. I hate that I haven’t been blogging, but I have been working or there is NOTHING interesting that you want to hear about.


Last night after work, I met with David at the Majestic Restaurant and Bar for some food and beer. And of course to watch the cardinals!

I changed and put on makeup at work 🙂

(Who, at this exact moment, are in the 7th game and WINNING! YEA!)

We were both exhausted and ending up leaving around 10. yes we are old. And I almost feel asleep in a restaurant. Of course I went home and got my pjs on, and we texted the rest of the game. haha

Funny fact: David Freese was up to bat in the bottom of the 11th inning. I sent a message “I bet he hits a home run.  I can feel it” Message sent. And then HE HIT A HOME RUN TO WIN THE GAME!!!! I must be psychic haha

Today I woke up and ran A MILLION errands:

  • Grocery store.
  • Target
  • Took my grandma to two grocery stores
  • Hardware store
  • Old Navy (found a new brown dress that will work better for halloween)

My grandma is helping me with the costume, and it looks pretty good. Im going out with David tomorrow night, so I hope to have pictures than. (and then maybe he can make his first appearance on here…but we’ll see)

I also picked this up at the grocery store for 10 bucks! I think it might work in my room!

I also got these ingredients….can you guess what im going to make? haha

even though I was busy today, I still made time to make a halloween cake.  sprinkles on the inside and on top!

I only had one piece!! I sent a few pieces to my grandparents (a thank you for helping me with my costume!) and I didn’t go back for seconds. I was actually really proud of myself. Bad news is I didn’t get to the gym today, or out for a run. 😦

Question for you:

Do you ever beat yourself up or feel bad if you don’t make it to the gyM?

What are you going to be for halloween?
