Turkey Trotting!

Tomorrow the hus and I are Turkey Trotting in Oceanside! I have wanted to run this race for a few years now but we are always up north. This year we aren't heading to Ventura until the late morning so that means we have time to Trot our little hearts out! Yes, we are leaving our house at 6:40am for this race. I probably should be taking bets as to whether the hus will actually get out of bed.

This afternoon I picked up our registration packets, bib numbers and the best part the T-SHIRT! The new clothing is my favorite part of any race.
I'll try to post pics of the race. They should be fun, funny and probably pretty bad.
So how have I spent my Thanksgiving Eve you ask, well I baked of course. Since 5pm I have made Pumpkin Gingerbread, Banana Bread, Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins and the best Dill crackers ever. Crap, I need to run this stupid race just to work off all the tastings I might have done while baking!
Happy Thanksgiving!

So, so, so ready!

The time has come for me to finally be home for more than 32 hours. I am so excited to spend some quality time with my bed, my TV, my kitchen, my husband and my dog! This past trip has been a long and tiring one. Crap, I feel like a whiny brat complaining about being burned out ... I should be happy that I have a job!

Last week I left home on Tuesday late morning, drove to LAX, spend two days traveling around LA, went down to San Bernardino, then down to San Diego, home for a few hours, flew to Oakland, had a presentation in Hayward, drove to Stockton (yes another beautiful hot spot of CA) then to Cameron Park! Man I am tired just talking about it.

I'm now sitting in the airport waiting to get home. There are two ridiculously annoying people standing on either side of me having a full on conversation like i don't even exist. No, I don't really care that you are having "body work" done on your Subaru Mr. Annoying-As-Hell and no Ms. Feeling Sorry for yourself, I don't care that you don't have anyone to call and tell about your day and 100% don't care that you don't look like you drivers license picture anymore! Good God, don't tell me! I couldn't make up this crap if I tried!

Cynical Shefferd, way too cynical and maybe a little bit bitter!

Out on the trails

We are lucky enough to live right in the middle of miles and miles of great hiking trails. Between weekend hikes and Denis on his mountain bike, we have been able to explore almost all of the trails. Jake loves to go with us, but it has been so damn hot that he has had to stay home.

Not today! We were woken up last night to crazy wind and rain. I was so excited that I couldn't go back to sleep. There is nothing like listening to the rain and wind howl (no laughing or mocking me)! This morning it is still cool, cloudy and windy. So we took advantage and of course went hiking complete with fleeces and beanies!

My favorite Budd

Better late than never for our Halloween pics! At 2:30m on Halloween the hus informed me that we were going to a costume party ... thanks for the warning. Needless to say my costume wasn't very creative, but his made up for it a million times!

So Sad to be a Native Californian

Enough said. Really people, are you kidding me?

Apparently we care more about chickens spreading their wings then equal marriage for all?

No Need To Say Anything Else!

How could you deny these two lovely ladies?
As the hus says "No on 8: Stop the Hate, let the Gays Congregate"
