Just the normal Sunday over here.

We had a baked potato bar (it was my idea, I made sure that everyone thanked me for my brilliance). Yes… Vegetables, bbq chicken, cheese and sour cream are all delicious on top of a baked potato.

Brooke now thinks Maggie is her big pillow and constantly wants to cuddle with her (even though Maggie is a very good dog and extremely kind we always have an adult’s hand right there when Brooke is near her to be safe).

Bffs for life.

S’mores Bars

minus the Hershey Bars (because we didn’t have any)

added M&Ms

My mom gave an honest review and she prefers the Hershey Bars version… Just FYI when you make these (because I promise that you should make these).

When they came out of the oven Brooke walked on over and pointed to them as she asked in baby language for a piece. We told her no because they were too hot and she dramatically flung her body on the ground. Like mother like daughter.

So… remember how I signed up to run CIM next month? Yeah, I’m not doing it anymore. Long story short is I have some personal reasons that I am no longer going to be able to do the race (nothing running or injury related).

But NOW I am stoked to do the Phoenix Marathon on 3/1/14!!!!!! (I spy Jake:)

I have heard nothing but great things about this race and I can’t wait to get out there and run it. The temps will be perfect, I have family there (and a lot of friends doing it) and I will be more than ready to run fast.

They offer a full marathon, 1/2 marathon, 10k and Kids’ Fun Run. It is a Boston Qualifier (and the 1/2 marathon is an Olympic Qualifier course) and over 10,000 runners are expected for the 2014 races. It is going to be a good time! I feel like we should all meet in Phoenix and do this together… mkay… see you soon.

The Phoenix Marathon is giving away a Garmin 10 to one lucky reader (you can read my review for the Garmin 10 HERE). Giveaway ends 11/8/13.

PS how did she grow up so fast?!?!

Random: I think squirrels are terrifying when I run- they panic and I never know which way they are going to go and I just envision them jumping right at me! Strange? Yes. And i really couple use a Garmin bc I don’t have one and never have and only use my phone to track runs and I would be sooo excited to get one!

Randomness: When I first started running before the sun came up, I ran under a street light and got scared by my own shadow….;)

Random: The Lindt Dark Chocolate with Caramel and Sea Salt is so good, you feel like your brains will fall out! But don’t eat it after drinking a Diet Coke, because the sweetness of the soda will take away from the sweetness of the candy!

Something random: I once tried making S’mores Bars via a Pinterest recipe that basically just called for baking layers of graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallow. Looked good out of the oven, waited a few hours and took to a party. The thing hardened into a massive block that I couldn’t even remove from my now lost Pyrex.

Long story short: lesson learned. I will try your recipe.
