Cupcake Classic

It's been a busy couple of days!! Monday we went to the pumpkin patch, it was a lot of fun! We went on a hay ride, the girls rode the train, we played, we picked pumpkins and we went through the milo maze.

Then yesterday the big girls school had a family science night. We did lots of cool experiments and had a hot dog dinner that helped raise money for my oldest daughter's field trip in March (their bus alone is $2300!!!).

 This morning the two big girls had crazy hair day (I forgot to get a picture) and the littlest had picture day at preschool so I had lots of hair to do! After drop off I did my run for the Cupcake Classic. This Saturday  Jess, from Run with Jess, is turning 37. She is having a real race that day, but she's also having a virtual race this week. I did my 3.7 mile run this morning. 

Super excited and a bit sweaty

I didn't have my best time 3.7 in 38 minutes. But, my right quad is killing today so I'm glad I got it done! The rest of the day will be a busy one! I've got grocery shopping to do (we have NO food, oops!!), Target and Wal-Mart run to do, laundry, vacuuming, dusting, and making a whole chicken today for the first time! Three littlest girls have dance today too so the agenda is full! Hope everyone is having a great Wednesday!

Question of the day - What is your favorite Halloween candy?

Mine is all of them, sad but true, I'm a candy freak! That's why I haven't bought anything but candy corn yet (and I may or may not have eaten an entire bag of marshmallow pumpkins (like huge candy corn!!) all by my self).
