Pumpkins in the Park 2015

Oh hey guys, Happy Monday! Guess what I did this weekend? Well, one of the things I did. I went for a run! Ha, it probably doesn't seem so newsworthy, but this was the first organized run I've done in a long time. It was only a 5k, but considering I haven't run in forever, this seemed like a big accomplishment. I was never concerned about not finishing, but considering it was the most I had run this month I'm pretty proud of myself -although slightly concerned about how my quads still hurt today. Anywho... it was a lovely day for a run and I got to it with some lovely ladies. The best part was probably the (pre and) post race drinks and going out to a bar on a Saturday night in running wear (so comfy)! I may even be crazy enough to do it again... although next time I do think I'll train (or you know, do a few laps before the run).

In other weekend news, the kiddos test drove their Halloween costumes and their trick-or-treating skills at the Halloween event on Southport. It was a gorgeous day and the kids loved seeing all the fun costumes. Huge is gone for actual Halloween so it was nice to do a little holiday stuff as a family.

Um... hello?

*taps mic* so... ya... this is awkward... it's been a looong time... so, um, hi there! I feel like I should just jump back in, but it's been soo incredibly long that it might seem odd that I don't mention that... but then again, does anyone really care?

Well, it's now 2015... and this blog hasn't seen action since the spring of 2014... wrap your head around that one. I, also, do not know where the time has gone. I can't pretend to say nothing has happened, because that clearly is a big fat lie, but at the same time nothing is ridiculously different. 

My brother-in-law and sister-in-law, along with their darling 7 month old twin girls were here visiting us and we got to talking about the blog and she asked if I still wrote on it. I told her I hadn't kept up with it although I have lots of posts in draft form, but never bothered to finish and publish them. Anyway, we started looking through my (limited) archives and I realized how great the blog really is/was. There were many things I had already forgotten and seeing pictures and reliving it was a lot of fun. And, I always gripe about not having any (productive) hobbies... so maybe this can count as one. Wow... that is a very long intro to say, hey guys, I'm back!

And to kick it off... here's a picture of the 2 muchkins that have been keeping me busy these past few months.
