This is Not Another Holiday-y Post

B and I took a super cute post-Turkey Trot photo but like a real idiot I didn’t have the memory card in, and am unable to pull it off of the camera’s internal memory card bc I do not own the cord Sony created for this dumb camera and refuse to spend $10 just to pull one (albeit great) picture from it’s inner death grip memory.

Didn’t you want to know all that?

Other than the picture drama, our second annual Turkey Trot was a success.  Well, in the way that freezing temperatures, stroller-filled courses, and accidentally lining up in the last starting wave goes.  We both beat our goal times, even despite the elbow-throwing and stroller hopping.  And I’m pretty sure I kept all my profanities in my head, so, WIN! 

(That’s the true testament of a good race.)

((Audible profanities were made at NWM))

Our first solo-Thanksgiving was also a success, in a very non-Thanksgiving-y way.  I didn’t burn anything or beckon the fire department, and nobody got food poisoning, so we’ll chalk it up as the second big WIN for the day.  B dubbed the chicken (non-Thanksgiving-y, I said) the “best he’s ever had.”  I dubbed the pumpkin cupcuffins worthy of breakfast/lunch/and dinner for the rest of the weekend.

(What’s that?  You’ve never heard of a cupcuffin?  Well I don’t make cupcakes, bc HELLOOOO they are unhealthy, so I make “muffins” and pour a bunch of cream cheese frosting over them.  It’s practically a health food (with a little splash of sugar coma on the side) so it’s ok to double fist and/or eat them before 9am.  (You’re welcome.)

 Also, don’t I get some award for concocting and slaving over the “best chicken in the world” when I don’t eat meat?  What a catch B got himself…

Anyways it’s over and nobody wants to hear about pumpkin or turkey anymore so heave-ho, onward to Christmas we go!

  1. I have done that whole take a picture without the memory card so many times and I always get so mad at myself. Good find, $3.45….that’s practically free. Can’t wait to see the picture. Great job on your turkey trot and making an amazing dinner. Muffins with frosting are pretty much the best idea I have ever heard. Frosting at breakfast, yes.


  2. LOL Not killing the recreational stroller set is an achievement! I think I found my lose mojo (cross fingers) good luck in Vegas this weekend! And honestly, I went vegetarian so I only ate mashed potatoes albeit a boat of them ;)


    • Back when my fam was still weird about “aren’t you going to eat some turkey? It’s not REAL meat…” I filled a lot of plates with taters and green beans. Saves more room for pie! :)

      p.s. put a leash on that mojo


  3. Way to go at the Turkey Trot! I have such a love/hate with those races. I like the idea of having fun, but then I get so irritated when I can’t get by the power walkers and stroller pushers!


  4. Glad you guys had fun at Turkey Trot, wished I could have seen you or at least said hi but we were late getting to the coral, and had to check-in my jacket so we waited until everyone started running (so I can cross to the other side)…checked-in my stuff and we were officially the last ones to start, lol!

    I think by the time we finished the race, you were probably at home eating your turkey already.

    I was going to suggest taking a picture of the picture, lol! Looks like you have it taken care of. Have fun with your Momma this week.
