Random Thoughts

*I am so happy that today is Kyle's Friday! This 4-day weekend couldn't have come at a better time. We both have spent the week acclimating to his new schedule, it hasn't been bad but I'm adjusting back to him getting home late (at Bragg this was the norm so I'm ok with it). 

*Yesterday was my first day back to running a significant distance and I was able to get 4 miles in. It felt amazing and Friday it will be 7 miles that I go after.

*I'm going back to the gym today after a 2 week absence, I can't wait!

*This Saturday we are taking a day trip to Roswell, NM. Once I found out it was only 3 1/2 hours from here I knew we had to go. Can't wait to share pictures.

*My brain is officially fried this week from re-doing paperwork for the FRG, ready for a nice break this weekend. :) I still love it though.

*We bought tickets to see Marilyn Manson and Alice Cooper...yes we have a very diverse taste in music haha. I am really excited and it's one more thing to check off my bucket list. Next will be to purchase tickets to see Bush and Third Eye Blind! 

*I have plans to spend a good portion of the weekend baking and trying new things. I hope they are a success.

Oh and I couldn't wait until Friday to make the doughnuts.

Cinnamon Sugar and Chocolate Glazed! YUM!!!!!!! I will never buy store bought or from a bakery again.
