Whatcha Reading Weekend #4

Well it’s the weekend again!  And for me, it’s a three day weekend! Thumbs up  I had Friday off, so I spent the day getting my hair done, going to the gym, and baking cookies for Brandon’s birthday! 

That’s right, it was my hubby’s birthday yesterday!

Happy Birthday to Brandon!!! Smile Smile Smile

I’ll share more about the celebrations next week, including his mom’s oatmeal cookie recipe! Winking smile

For now, let’s talk about some of the other fun posts that I’ve been loving this week!

  • Tina at Carrots ‘N’ Cake posted about her phone interview with Giada DeLaurentiis.  I love Giada and her food, so I was very curious about Tina’s interview!
  • Lindsey at Gingerbread Bagels posted a delicious looking recipe for Mini Toblerone Cheesecakes.  I love how Lindsey always adds candy to her desserts.  Sugar + more sugar = genius in my book. Winking smile
  • Kat at Keep’n The Faith posted about the struggle to remain in control around Halloween candy!  I think many of us can relate to this issue!!  For me, the less variety that I have around, the better.  I’m a lot more likely to stop after 1 or 2 pieces when I just have one type of candy around.  But if it’s a variety bag … watch out!
  • Janelle at Running is Magical wrote about her half marathon experience.  I love her post because she was so honest!  It wasn’t exactly the easiest of runs for her, but she pushed through to finish the race, and that’s what counts!

 

Hope everyone has a great weekend.  Brandon and I are tackling 11 miles today.  Wish us luck!!

 

Question for ya …

Whatcha up to this weekend?

    Happy Bday to the hubby! I tackled my first 11 miler a week ago, and it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. I consciously started off slow, and by the end felt pretty strong. According to my husband (who was a runner) we often pick up the pace the longer we run. Who would of thunk it?

      That’s definitely what happened to me today! I started out slow and my shins/calves were hurting. But by the end, I was able to pick up the pace pretty well! :) Yay!

      Aww thanks, Amelia!!

    • notsodomesticated

      Just looked at your blog and it’s really cute!! But I can’t comment. Blogspot doesn’t always like wordpress blogs haha. There should be a way where you can make it so that more people can comment. If you have Name/URL as an option, I can usually comment that way.

      Just FYI so that hopefully you can get more people commenting! Have a great day!! :)

    Oooooh dear! I think I fixed it now! Thank you so much for letting me know! :) I feel so technologically savvy now that I figured out how to change it!
