What's Been Going On?

 Last week Lucas and I went to see Nine Inch Nails in Nashville. It was a quick trip, but it was a lot of fun! They used laser lights for the effects for all of their songs and it was pretty neat.

This was when we were leaving, but I love this picture of us. It's become a tradition to take our picture before we leave to head back home on our trips. 

For Halloween the past few years we have been carving pumpkins. It's something fun to do every year. These are this year's pumpkins. 

So, I did something crazy the other night. I signed up for The Louisville Triple Crown of Running. I may have lost my mind. It include a 5k, 10k and 10 mile run. I need something to motivate me and what better way than to sign up for races that I will have to train to be able to do. I even have proof.

The goal is to start eating healthy again and run, run, run!

September Foodie Pen Pal Reveal

September Foodie Pen Pals was a lot of fun! I was paired with Chrystal at Yum Eating. This month for the 1st time we were just paired with one person and sent each other packages instead of having 2 different partners. I really liked this and it was much easier talking to one person and getting to know her as opposed to 2.

It was great getting to know Chrystal. We actually have a lot in common including a love for Shinedown!
She sent this awesome magnet from the Shinedown Fanclub.

On to the food... Chrystal recently visited Canada and sent some treats that she picked up while there including maple syrup, maple sugar, maple creme chocolate bar and a hand mask.  She also sent a variety of teas, applesauce and some jerky. I am looking forward to trying everything!

Overall, this has been another fantastic experience with this program. This month I was thankful to meet someone I have so much in common with. (Especially the love for Shinedown.)
