pumpkins and baseball

25 Oct

Ok, first things first. I am sorry I have been MIA this past week but I have had SO MUCH going on. Good stuff, I swear! I’m not going to tell you about everything, just the fun stuff!

On Sunday, big Luke and I took little Luke to the pumpkin farm to pick out our pumpkins. Let me tell you, it was slim pickings at the farm this year. I actually had read in the Carroll County Times, my local newspaper, that there was a shortage of pumpkins this year due to the crazy rain we had a few weeks ago. But we had fun finding a pumpkin, even if there wasn’t much to choose from!!

My Luke's on the hayride!

We took a hayride to the pumpkin patch and then back to the main area where they had a petting zoo, pony rides, pumpkin bounce, playground and some home made jams and butters, cidars, etc. You know I bought some pumpkin butter, apple butter, honey and some apple cidar!!

He definitely had fun and we will be carving the pumpkins tonight! Last night big Luke had a baseball game. He plays with his father on a 30 over league and loves it. When he plays in our area, we go to watch his games. Yesterday they played right up the street from us so we were able to join in the fun!
This is Luke up to bat!
Yay! He made it to first!!
I told Luke that this is the picture they would put on his baseball card lol. You remember when photographers would come out and take pictures of you and then of your team??
Lukey and I had a lot of fun playing with the camera, taking goofy pictures of us and some videos. I am just going to spare you a few of the goofball moments.
Thats my little monkey!!!

So after a nice weekend was had, we started the work week yesterday. So far, so good! Had a nice meal last night of some spaghetti. Quick and easy and Luke makes the best home-made sauce! Yumm-0!!
For breakfast this morning I had some overnight oats with some pumpkin butter. Soo delish! I can’t really take pictures of my food at work without looking strange so I don’t always have pictures of my lunches, etc. I’m sure I can do it in the morning…if I remember!! Your lucky I remember to get myself AND my son up on time! This chick right here…is sooo not a morning person!
Lunch was nothing but leftover dinner from last night and a White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Clif Bar.
I’m going to my mom’s house tonight for dinner with my son so I have no idea what is in store for me tonight! My mom is a very good cook and she eats all organic which is great for me and my son, sometimes we just don’t have the same likes and tastebuds!

I’m writing this from my phone so its gonna be short. Today is the day after my bff peggy’s wedding! I promise you all I will write a wedding post about the event soon!

It was such a wonderful time and I am so glad I was able to be a part of the beautiful wedding. Luke looked so handsome dressed up! It was a wonderful time and I can’t wait to see the professional pictures. My maid of honor duties are done! What am I gonna do now? Plenty!

I have the Susan G. Komen race coming up and a possible other one in DC as well. Exciting!!

Looks like big luke is back with my frozen fruit! What a wonderful man…I sent him to the store for me to get some frozen fruit so I can make a smoothie. This girl has to get some nutrients back in her body after all the alcohol from last night!

Smoothie time!

I’m so sorry…

Hey everyone, I just wanted to quickly apologize for not writing in here lately. I think with me being super busy and everything else, I became run down, sick, not feeling well, and just plain tired.  I’m still not feeling well and I almost want to go home a half day at work, but I’m going to stick it out. Not sure why, I mean I still have over 4 weeks of vacation time! I honestly think, sitting here right now and writing this to everyone that I might actually go home. I just need to curl up in my bed, under the covers and sleep the day away. (well at least until 8pm when VAMPIRE DIARIES comes on! Sick or not, I cannot miss this show!

So I again apologize for drolpping off the blog planet and never updating on the bachelorette party but as soon as i feel myself again, I will blog about that and a few other surprises!!

I’m not even going to talk about food and exersize bc it has been non existent in my life this week. Food is a bare minimum and exersize is nowhere in site. I have not had the energy to even try doing some kind of work out!

I’m really bummed because I was supposed to start two workout classes this week.

There is always next week!

Questions of the day:

Do you force yourself to work out when you are not feeling well?

What is your favorite day of the week to watch TV?
