Fall Things

Wow! I can't believe it's been so long since I've posted! Fall has been a really busy time for us, and it seems like it's just flown by! Here it is the first day of November and I still feel like I should be running around in a tank top an shorts like I was in my last entry. That's total wishful thinking on my behalf though, because if I did that now, I'm pretty sure I'd be fighting some frostbite!

Here's what we've been up to, September and October:

Finally moved into our new house! More pics are coming of the work we put into this place to make it our home--I promise!

But for now, here are some outside shots...
We have a huge yard in the front and back, which I love. But that also means LOTS of leaf raking! It's a good work out though!

We celebrated Christopher's birthday in early October with mini cupcakes and sibling bonding.
I dyed my hair RED
And we went to my first ever Utah Utes football game. I can officially say I am a superfan now since it rained on us the whole time AND the game went into OT.
You can't tell, but I have like four coats on in this picture, plus a blanket, plus a husband to keep me warm. It was necessary.

Hopefully I will be able to squeeze in another post, or several, before I have to do a winter recap! xoxo

First 10k

I did it! I finished my race today in 55:57:4, 53rd out of 376 runners--I can't believe it! Thanks, everyone for your support, especially my hubby and my sister, who was the first to hug me as I reached the end.
It was definitely an amazing feeling to cross the finish line. Now that I've proven to myself that I can run (in front of other people), there may or may not be more races in my future. We'll see :)

Happy Birthday Baby!

Well, I'm a day late and a dollar short, but Happy Birthday to my wonderful husband Dustin! Not that he minds either the day or the dollar due to our cheap-skate nature and the fact that he doesn't really love birthdays as much as I do. :)
Anyway, to celebrate my baby's last year in his 20's, there was some of this...
some of these...
(homemade quadruple dark chocolate cupcakes, dubbed the Chocolate Overload by D. Fancy, no?)
dinner at our favorite Mexi place.
and then we went home and went to sleep like the two old farts we are. We just can't keep up with the young whippersnappers these days. 29 is the new 59. Ha Ha. Just kidding Mom!

Rockin St. George

This weekend was ROCKIN......thanks to the hospitality of my brother and sister in law down in hotter than h*ll St. George, Utah. Luckily, we picked the hottest days of the year so far to travel down--the median temperature was 100 degrees with the highs around 115, so when I say that we were a hot mess, I'm not kidding.

We went hiking though Zion National Park and it was gorgeous. Here's my hot mess self and the hubs.

What are we doing in the river, you ask? Well, there's actually a killer hike called The Narrows where you typically walk through a little drizzly stream for a few miles. Evidently the run-off is a tad high this year. We actually waded knee-deep before realizing that we were about to go swimming if we trekked any farther, so we turned around and hiked this instead.

The Emerald Pools

This is us at the end...all dried up, parched and prickly. Just kidding. We survived continued to rock out all weekend. Thanks Kit and Liz!

Letter #8

Dear Peeps at the Gym,
Find the balance. I don't want to smell your BO, but I don't want to smell your cheap-ass vanilla body spray or your knock-off Axe Expressions.
Deodorant will suffice. P.S. Note to gym staff: I don't want to smell anyone cooking BACON in your little break room microwave either. That's just cruel. Keep your sodium packed, nitrate laced deliciousness to yourself. I would just wold my breath, but that's impossible while I'm trying to workout for Pete's sake.
