Reunited and Weekly Goals

I made some blueberry muffins for breakfast yesterday morning. Confession: I used apple sauce instead of oil and my boys didn’t bat an eye. I actually thought they were better, more moist. J waited anxiously for those, “burberry muffins.”

20131006-110151.jpgMy in laws and SIL have been in Israel for the last week and a half. We live pretty close to them and you already know I spend a lot of time with my SIL’s. It was hard having them gone for so long, but yesterday we got to finally pick them up!


Whit made the yummiest clam chowder, perfect for this fall weather. I ate it too quick for a pic. The boys ran around like always. They were collecting acorns.

About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.
