Three Things Thursday ...

1. You know you have good friends when they indulge your obsessions. First, there is my running obsession. G is always there when I want to run. And I can ALWAYS convince her to add a few miles or to attempt a 40K with less than four weeks to build her mileage (note: I am not actually recommending that anyone do that. And she's not either, nor is she going to run it.)

And then there is my cupcake obsession. After hitting 900 miles, I decided that a cupcake would be the perfect reward. But, life got in the way and I never made it over to the cupcake shop. In swoops, Dee a.k.a. RunHapi13. She offered to make a cupcake run. And yesterday afternoon, she treated me to these ...

Yumtastic!

Have I mentioned how much I love my friends?

2. My children have been doing things as of late that I don't approve of. This morning, I caught Dilly with one leg over the bar of her crib trying to escape (she's too young to be doing that). And yesterday, Doodle bit Dizzle. And then tried to justify her behavior. A few hours after the biting incident, she said this to me:

"Sometimes I am naughty. Like when I bite Dizzle today. But I only bite her once. So, it's OK."

No, Doodle. It's NOT OK!

3. You all really want new workout gear. There were 250 entries in my Nuu-Muu giveaway and thanks to random.org the winner is entry number 1 (I know, weird, right?)

Congrats Keri @ The Blue-Eyed Runner

Please email me with your size, dress choice and contact info and I will get you hooked up ASAP!

ahahah "I only bit her once..." - my brother was the same way when we were growing up. His standard was "but I didn't hit her that hard!"

mmm, cupcakes. There's a chain of stores here called Cupcakes that I frequent as often as my husband will let me.

I've read that cupcakes may no longer be as trendy as they used to be, but to me tasty goodness never goes out of style. Nice!

RunWithKate said...

Hand over those cupcakes, or else!
Mmm, I hope you know you made us all crave massive amounts of sugar after posting this. I am looking around my kitchen for something, anything that might slightly taste like those cupcakes. Grrr.
