Hi again!  Apologies in advance for the lack of pictures in this post.  I haven’t taken any new ones so far this week (lazy, probably; busy, definitely!) and I apparently have things to say, pictures or not Smile

So, I love fall and am super excited for the cooler weather.  BUT, with the change of seasons and general lack of sleep that has seemingly become my new norm, I’m afraid I’ve gotten a cold.  BOO!  Definitely going through the tissues and am thinking soup sounds just right for dinner tonight. 

Anyway, that basically means my running has not been happening as planned.  I am hoping after a good night’s sleep tonight and some more tea, I will be ready to knock out 3 miles tomorrow morning first thing.  I need to be ready to run a 10K by the end of the month.  I feel good with 4 miles right now, so totally doable.  AND, I figure since I’ll be running for the first time in costume, it’s not meant to be a PR kinda race Winking smile  At least not for this girl!

Apart from the sniffles and sneezes and lack of running, things are going pretty well.  W is still loving school, but is starting to challenge us some.  Literally.  Like he wants to make sure we really do mean what we say.  I am hopeful that a little more one-on-one attention will help and am brainstorming craft ideas for him since he loves to do “projects.”  I found a great website/blog for some ideas and signed up for their emails so I can get little reminders and new ideas.  Go check out Play At Home Mom if you get a chance, it’s a great site!

Hubby and I celebrated our 5-year anniversary last week!  We went out to a fantastic dinner to celebrate and I was excited to get dressed up.  We had some good wine, delicious seafood, and then went for a dessert martini at the “neighborhood bar.”  (Literally, it’s in our neighborhood just about.  We could bike or walk)  It’s so hard to believe that it’s been 5 years already!  A lot of fun stuff has happened in these last 5 years Smile 

We are getting excited for Halloween here at our house, too.  W has decided that he’s going to be Woody, Bear will be Buzz, I will be Jessie, and Daddy will be Buzz.  Actually, he said Bear would be Rex the dinosaur, but finding a Rex costume for a 1 year old isn’t happening.  So, we decided he could be Buzz, too.  Not sure if hubby and I will invest in the adult versions of these costumes since they are pretty pricey…I will be ordering the costumes ASAP and you’d better believe pictures will be up as soon as I get my boys into those cute outfits! 

Have a great night, y’all!
