I love anything creative...I am a busy mom of three (+4 dogs, 1 bird, 1 bunny, and 1 sweet husband) who sometimes wishes I had more time/energy/talent to devote to just being creative!

Halloween Countdown!

Another Lizzie Kate, this one was an old one I pulled from my finished basket, I can tell it is older because I rarely stitch on 14ct Aida anymore. I still love L*K though! It sits on my fall pumpkin shelf as it is too small to actually go on the couch (plus the dogs might see it as a chew toy). I love the mini-pumpkins you can get at the grocery store this time of year for so cheap. I always get a bunch of them to scatter around the house. Zoey asked if we could carve one of them and I told her I didn't even know if they had seeds/pulp inside of them. I am exhausted this evening. I spent most of my day visiting blogs and playing around on Pinterest. Then this evening sweet boyfriend and I went on a 10 mile bike ride. I haven't ridden all summer long and my legs were killing me! I signed up recently for the P.F. Changs half marathon they hold here every January and I am so nervous about it. I need to start running more, and winter time is the perfect season here in AZ to be back outdoors. I have ran this race once before two years ago, and it was a lot of fun. But each time I do any group running event I always get so scared I am going to be the very last one to cross the finish line.

Love your pillow...

I love the way running makes me feel.. Did a couple halfs - and I believe, when you cross, you will feel a rush - no matter what place you are in. Running just makes me high - I hurt my knee a year ago running and I still am having a hard time with the rehab - Please keep updating us on your training
