Wedding Dresses, Disappointment & Running

Hello everyone!  Sorry for the absence, life has been CRAZY lately, and honestly, I am just enjoying the ride.  I took a whirlwind of a trip back home because my cousin is getting married and I'm her MATRON OF HONOR!!!  So I am super, super excited! So I flew home for Fall Break because it was time to find her wedding dress!  She did say yes to her dress and she is absolutely stunning; I cannot wait for June to get here so I can watch her and her fiancé make the vow of forever :)

After that it was a whirlwind until Halloween!  I love Halloween, I love watching Hocus Pocus, Scooby Doo movies, pumpkins, decorations, and most of all, trick-or-treating!  Last year we lived in a neighborhood that had lots of kids and I was blessed with only THREE trick-or-treaters.  This disappointment is strong to this day my friends.  Well this year, we live in a neighborhood with kids again and I was ready!  I had Halloween music playing, a big bowl of candy (all chocolate) and a cute dog!  Wonderful!

No, it was bad, awful, and just sad.  Max and I had only TWO trick-or-treaters!  I was soooo bummed!

Max was just as unhappy...

So, I compulsively ate 5 pieces of candy and we watched the Hocus Pocus marathon on TV.  I think I am boycotting the trick-or-treat part of Halloween next year, my heart cannot continue to take this disappointment.

Poor Phil has been in the field this past week and a few days this coming week; well he gets home around 9-10pm and then is out of the house at 6am.  I think that is worse than just being out there completely!  But with him in the field this weekend, I thought it was a good idea to get some good gym time in, walks with Max and some running done.  The only time I have been running lately is when I have a race, and I mean I only run the day of the race, nothing leading up to it.  I had gotten back in the habit, but then I went home and things got crazy!  But this weekend I have put in 7.5 miles (total) and I am feeling good about this start.

I really want to sign up for a half marathon up in Tulsa next month, but for some reason I am having a hard time actually doing it.  I feel excited, but super nervous!  Does that happen to anyone else?

I hope everyone has a wonderful week!  There is a LOTR marathon on TV today and Max and I are holding down the couch: snacks and sweet tea included! :)

Linking up with Bianca!


  1. Bummer about not having many trick or treaters! That seriously makes me sad too!

    1. Right?!?! It was just not a good experience! And then I felt the need to eat quite a bit of the candy...

  2. Aw, I'm sorry you had hardly any trick or treaters! That's crazy! I don't usually get many because our neighborhood has very few kids.


    1. I know! It was so sad! I just kept wondering where they all went!

  3. haha The introvert in me avoid the idea of trick-or-treaters. Scott loves it though.
    I'd say to sign up for the half. It's nice to have something you're working toward.


Comments make my day!
