Life Happens....

and sometimes things just get in the way or you get busy and some things get put on the back burner. Such as updating this here blog of mine. Normally I do it on the weekends and put post's together through out the week and catch up on all the ones I follow. But with my weekends full of running insanely long distances and then spending what little time the hubbs and I have together out enjoying life. Some times the last thing I want to do is come home and sit in front of a computer while the hubbs is siting next to me or out playing with the puppies. So I've compiled a group of pictures that sums up what we've been up to over the month of October to share. (mainly for me to have to look back on in the years to come.) Speaking of October, can you seriously believe that its already almost over?!?!? I'm excited and nervous at the same time because once we hit November 1st that means I'm in single digits till my Marathon. YIKES!!! I'm so ready to sleep in on Saturday mornings again instead of getting up at 5am to get my runs out of the way. After my race I'm planning on getting back in to blogging regularly. Don't worry I will still be running regularly but I wont be training for a marathon lol. thanks for sticking around and following along. We may or may not have some big changes come mid next year which I still don't know how I feel about but we will see and only time will tell. Life as a Army Wife right?!?!? So on with the pictures because I've kept you this long already.

Snoopy & Lucy go to the SC Fair

 Today was the final day of the SC state fair and we decided to make a girls date out of it. The hubbs was suppose to go as well but with a busy up coming week in the field I have him a pass. lol We had so much fun, road lots of rids, had loads of laughs and enjoyed a yummy corn dog. The fair any were makes for some great people watching and the SC did not disappoint there. Kelly and I hadn't had a girls trip out in a few weeks aside from our runs and so it was great to get out and have some fun. It was much needed after a long weekend. As we were headed to get our yummy corn dog we ran in to one of my other favorite families in the South. I was so excited to see this little Red Head and Lucy was to. They are the best of buds!!! Today was my first full experience of the SC state fair since we've been here over the past two years. I've always loved going, of course the food is my favorite part. We'll def. be going back again next year if we are still here in the south.
