Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween everyone!!!

I made pumpkin spice muffins with chocolate chips last night for the Halloween celebration at work today. They are super easy to make!

All you need is:

  • 1 box of Duncan Hines spice cake mix
  • 1 15oz can of pumpkin
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup of egg whites (optional but I use to make them a little more moist)
  • 1 cup of chocolate chips (optional)
Whip together everything and place into greased muffin tins. Bake at 325 degrees a for about 20 minutes and Voila!! :-) 
They are pretty tasty if I do say so myself.

Fried, Died, & Laid To The Side

This weekend I filled my stomach with a plethora of fried foods at the State Fair of Texas. I have lived in Texas for two years and had never been. You can get just about any food fried. Its pretty crazy but actually very good food (and adult beverages)! 

Fried pepperoni pizza

Fried cookie dough

Fried grilled cheese

Fried peaches & cream

Twas the day before the race...

Less than 24 hours until I start and finish my first half marathon!! I am very excited! Not so much nervous yet! I keep telling myself this is just another training run.

Today I went to the expo and race packet pickup. I am just relaxing and mentally preparing myself for tomorrow. Later I will go to dinner (yay carb loading) and lay out my gear. Although, I already have most of my stuff in a pile ready to go.

Here are the photos from the expo! It was a small expo. I did discover a new wine, Barefoot Wines. I am going to look for it at the store next time. I saw SPIbelt and iFitness belt tables. Nothing worth buying though.

I decided to use my phone to snap some pictures. It was easier for me.
Enjoy and wish me luck tomorrow. :-)

Not sure how the shoe tag works...
