Halloween 2013


Thursday- 3 miles on the treadmill + core workout

I even dressed festive for Halloween on my run=)

20131101-001540.jpgHappy November! I can’t believe how fast these months are flying by. I tried to make yesterday special. It’s hard when you lack any kind of creativity haha I made ‘pumpkin pancakes’ for J. . . I put banana slices as eyes and chocolate chips for a smile. No pic because it turned out that great;)

My neighbor hosted a Halloween play group yesterday morning. J had a great time with the kids and loved the pumpkin spice muffins the host made.

20131101-001520.jpgWe came home, ate lunch, and both took a nap. J was out for almost 3 hours! He hasn’t been taking great naps lately, I’m so glad he finally took advantage of it. As soon as he was up we were out the door to grandma’s house.

Pumpkin shaped pizza from Papa Murphy’s, salad, soup, and dessert pizza. This was my first plate, I followed it with a bowl of each soup(taco and butternut squash).

20131101-001357.jpgThese two were so entertaining! J’s cousin was all about knocking the doors, striking up conversation with each person, saying trick or treat and then sprinting to the next house. J, on the other hand, followed slowly behind him quietly taking candy haha

The loot


It was a late night and we all had so much fun. I LOVE this time of year, it’s magical.

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.
