21 Red balloons sent heavenward with wishes and dreams for Uncle Micheal's 21st birthday.  Oh how we miss that kid!

He actually read the owners manual for his bike!  We found some very very amusing things covered in that 'book'

Channelling her inner fish

He was a trooper through the swim

We have 2 new triathletes in the house!  They were awesome!

You never know where an angry bird is going to show up

It's beginning to smell a lot like Christmas 
His favorite resting place

a little bit of a wild soul

Pumpkin guts- Gross!
One of the many beautiful churches we saw in New York
Life size ugly {an 11 year old requested I bring this home for him}

We came - I ran- it was an AMAZING race as far as the energy and excitement.

My breakfast as of lately.  Scrambled eggs sautéed onions and avocado- YUM!

Maybe if I sit on her chair she will play more with me!

A little ruffled

What's on your play list today?

Favorite sleeping spot... no one can sneak in or out

Seriously ... my grace and cooking abilities are just sometimes too much for each other!

Top Dog?

'Tis the season for a little window shopping!

A Christmas list of sorts.... some not so realistic and maybe a few easy ones!

A new tri transition bag.  I am really liking the Race-Lite bag from Amphipod.  

This SPEK case for my phone.  It is RED!  :)

I think I really want to be a watch wearer.  The Fossil Stella Resin watch looks like a fantastic way to start.

The Ribbon Spot would really love a Mac Book  :)  You know where to find that!

New Nike Free's in this color size 8, please, mine are almost to the end of their life span  :(

While I still LOVE my Ralph Lauren Romance, it might be time for a change.  Burberry Brit is on the list.

Black Glitter TOMS in a size 7  :)

An indoor bike trainer so maybe I can cut some time off my riding.

The Modern Pearl Rosette necklace in the original size in plum, pacific, berry, off white, gray, navy, rich red, moss green, avocado, fuchsia, clementine or raffia!  (yes I love them that much!)

Money to spend at Lulu is always nice.  I can always find something there  :)

Loving this top in a medium

Pullup Package (One each: Bands #3,4,5) from Rouge fitness!  Unassisted pull-ups are a 2012 goal of mine!

A trip back to Dublin?  :)

So what is on your list this year?

Insta- Friday Edition 8 & 9

Boys were camping so centered out to let the girl try sushi.  The verdict = she is not a fan  :(

Boys still camping = a little girl time

Monday = Mooyah night at this house after a late night of gymnastics

Angry bird in the house... and soon trick or treating around the neighborhood  :)

Starting down the long road (hopefully) of band concerts.
Amazingly they sounded really good after only 8 weeks of school.

We really should re-name him chunky!!!!  17 weeks and 29.8 pounds!!!!

this house is having a love affair with Honey Crisp apples at the moment.  We can't keep enough of them in this place.

Early morning before school cuddles.  

11 pm dinner company after making it to Austin!
hey look it is a sleep number bed - no not a vibrating bed!
Might have been the funniest thing Katherine mumbled all weekend.

The front desk said no partying - they never said anything about no biking at midnight on the 12th floor! 

Finally relaxing!

Our view of Austin - not too shabby!

Thanks guys for the hands on lesson on changing a tire.  No one else would get on board with the  "that is what the sag wagons are for" plan!  Happy to report I didn't need the newly gained knowledge this weekend.

Racked and ready

We are still trying to figure out how they can use marathon and fresh together - nothing about running a marathon makes you smell good or 'fresh'
I guess Austin school kids are really fast.... I mean why else would the SCHOOL ZONE speed limit be 50 MPH!!!!!

The race really didn't go anything like it should have for me, but you pick up and learn the lessons you were meant to learn that day.  And then you go to dinner with some of the funnest people out there who think they are really funny when they let the waitress know it was my birthday. (which it really wasn't)  

No rest for the weary at this house - The kids have their tri this weekend so off to the pool for a little more swim practice.
Field trip day with my favorite 4th grader.  A day of outdoor learning and of course the
temps drop almost 40 degrees just in time!

Took about 3 minutes (maybe) on the buss for her to be out cold on the way home.
She might be just a little exhausted!
