Weekend Update: 10/19/14

First, I mustache you a question. . ..


How was your weekend? LOL. Luke did NOT like this moustache on his face and ripped it off two seconds after the picture was taken. #keepingitreal

Friday it was chill and WINDY. Seriously in 5 miles, I almost got blown backwards at least a dozen times and Luke complained about the wind blowing his face. . . I know, bud, Mommy’s trying. . . But we completed 5 miles together and felt better because of it.


Our first family movie night on Friday – Ratatouille! And popcorn. Smile 


Epic pancake fail on Saturday morning… Paleo coconut pancakes – NOT good. Seriously, I can’t remember the last time I had a recipe fail SO bad that we had to throw it away. #majorfail


Thankfully, the farmer’s market was a success.


After “baking” with energy balls. . . and they are already all gone. Yup, that good!


And the best run I’ve had in a long time. Beautiful weather. Fall trees. Great pace. 10k done.



And, you guys, I seriously cannot stop wearing these fabletics pants. <love>


A boy + stick + water = hours of entertainment.


Sign for Mankato Marathon (full details of spectating the race on Tuesday!!)


And pancake (well waffles) for redemption on Sunday. Thanks again for the awesome (and AdvoCare challenge friendly) mix Jennie and Ryan!!


It was SO nice out on Sunday. We were outside all afternoon. . . well after the football game of course. go Pack go. Smile 




And in honor of marathon day, I had to rock out my Winter Carnival t-shirt from the Frozen half marathon in 2005! (Remember that one, Sue?!!)


And since we ate all the energy balls, a little more baking. And these are amazing. You would never guess the “secret” ingredient!


And then typical Sunday night stuff – dinner, bath time, laundry, getting ready for the week and early bedtime!

Hope you had a great one! What were you up to??

And because it was pretty marvelous, I am linking up with Katie for Marvelous in my Monday!

  1. Ah, pancake fails are bad.. but near as horrible as when you have a waffle fail. Those are the worst – esp. having to clean the waffler maker. Haha!

      OH MY GOODNESS – you are SO right .. . that is WAY worse than pancake fail. 🙂 LOL. thanks for making me feel better!!

  2. I’m loving everyone’s fall running pics these days! I’m up in Northern VA this week for work and all the leaves up here are perfect. It’s crazy that just 3 hours south at home they’re not quite there yet. Hopefully while I’m up here I’ll get some running in!

  4. Yay for good runs! They are the best. I am SO excited for those! EEeeee! I have definitely been there with the pancake fails. I usually just smear some pb on them and scarf them down anyway, but sometimes they are too rough to even try and salvage!
    What a fun and cozy night: watching Ratatouille (agree this is a really hard word to spell) and eating popcorn with the fam. It sounds like the perfect night to me.

  6. Jesse and I were signed up to run the half in Mankato yesterday, but obviously we did that before we knew we were moving. It was sad for me not to be there (I ran the past 2 years as well), and my aunt was there running the full. I hope it was fun to spectate for you guys!

      Bummer that you guys had to miss it. . . you might have to plan a trip back to MN sometime and try to coordinate to run it again – such a great course!

  7. What a GREAT movie choice for your first family movie night! I LOVE Ratatouille!

  9. Luke is just too cute! And I don’t blame him for not liking the stache. In real life they’re gross! He’s a smart boy! Lol

    That sucks about the pancake fail. I hate it when something turns out that horrible and you have to throw them away. But on the bright side. I’m so happy to hear you liked the muffins! They’re a tasty way to sneak in some veggies. 🙂
