Sunday Funday

I brought the spirit today while watching the Eagles- Giants game, and it worked!  They came back from  24-7 to win it 38-31 in the final seconds :D  

Today I decided to stop being a wimp and run outside, I changed my shirt and sneaks and was ready to go:
I'm  all about the head tilt, hands on hips, turned feet today.
I need a new pose.

If you like my socks, stayed tuned for Friday, I am giving lots of them away!  I went to Target and Kohl's yesterday and they both had a large variety of awesome knee socks (I'm obsessed.)   I got a bunch for me and I got a bunch for you guys :D  My thoughts while I was picking them out, "one for me, one for you, one for me, one for you. . ."  I wanted to spread the wealth (of adorable socks) and I had a Kohl's 30% of coupon :) 

     My run outside was great, It didn't feel too cold at all (around 30°) and It was really nice to get some fresh air outside.  I am definitely going to try and run outside a few times a week and I'm pretty sure I'm going to do the first 5k of the Winter run series.

After my run Nolan and I did this:

Kid can't take a normal picture to save his life.

    If you have never seen these before, they are cake pops from Bakerella (seriously go see the newest post on this site right NOW, it is a Cupcake Christmas wonderland!) and they are amazing.  The process involves making a cake, crumbling the cake, mixing it with icing, rolling it into balls (or other shapes) and then decorating them.

  I made some Pumpkin ones for Nolan's October birthday:

Tomorrow we will do all the crumbling and rolling and decorating, this round is for practice and experimenting, hopefully some of them come out good enough to give to Nolan's teachers.  I'm going to make another batch or two for Christmas :D  Oooo maybe I will give some of these away too!

What did you do on this Super Sunday? :)

I've had cake pops before and they are great and kids love them!(and adults too :)

Carrie said...

Your Sunday sounds awesome!! Those pops look delicious :) And way to brave the outdoors, in awesome socks no less! I love fun socks too, but here it's so cold I would have to be a maniac to go in shorts. My fun socks only get a few months of race fun.
I hope you got sweaty in them ;)
