Halloween Cupcake Ideas


William Sonoma has several cupcake kits and I picked up a few to make some fun treats this weekend. I love this time of year and getting in my kitchen to bake is one of my favorite ways to spend a Saturday.

I started with this idea from Pinterest.................



Its always fun to see the idea and then to see how yours will turn out. Its not as good but I am pleased!

 
 
I picked up all of these items from Target. I love that you can get black icing in the bag.


William Sonoma had several cupcake sets to pick from.



This is one that lets you stencil the powdered sugar on the cupcake. I only had white icing so I only gave this a test run.



 
Then it was time to start decorating.





 

 Happy Halloween!!!!

Old Navy Vest and Outfit of the Day


One of my favorite items I picked up last year was my two vest from Old Navy. I love how you can pair this up and wear in so many different ways. I was going to wear the green vest today but the weather heated up very quickly so I went with the scarf and shirt only but I had to share how cute it can be with the vest.




This scarf is really special because Trey won it for me during a college sorority visit with Dallas. He had to go up and get it from the girls and they just feel in love with him. He loved the fact I was wearing the scarf he won for me!

 
I am wearing my white 3/4 sleeve shirt from Ann Taylor. Jeans are also from Ann Taylor and my shoes are Tory Burch wedges.
 
Here it is paired with the green vest from Old Navy. I love that it has a quilted look and zipper side pockets.
 

 
You can wear it zipped or unzipped for two different looks.

 

 
I actually love the look of the cream vest with the white shirt.



 
 
So many different ways to wear them from casual to a dressed up look. If you can find them I would make sure to purchase one. I am on the hunt for the hot pink one that I missed out on last year. I can not believe I did not purchase it because its so cute!
 
 
Hope you have a wonderful week and I leave you with this quote/verse. Live your life in a way that the sun will shine from you and do not let anyone put a shade of negativity over it. May you be happy and hopefully your happiness will rub off on them!

Shrimp Fest 2014 Run Gulf Shores


This was our 2nd time taking part in the Gulf Shores Shrimp Fest Run because its one of our favorites. I am sure we will be there again next year and the years to come. We live about an hour and half away so we left at about 5:30am so we could arrive on time. Here we are loading up in the car.

 
Here we are getting ready to line up and pictures from the start of the race.
 
 

 
#164 felt like a lucky number!

 
All three of us took part in this. Its the perfect event for runners and walkers.

 
Runners lining up!



 
That's my Trey getting ready.

 
They had a drone above us taking pictures and followed us at the start of the race. It was a little different having this fly above us.
 
The following pictures are from the path of the run. I am not going to comment after everyone but you can just see the amazing view.
 


 


 
Yes, I know my time could have been better if I wasn't so busy taking pictures but this run has such a great view I just had to share. Plus I really take part in this one for the view.
 
I love the little bridges we run over!


 
They did a great job with the water stations. They ladies were so nice and they had two separate spots for us to get water. Very pleased!

 
They also did a great job making sure we knew which direction to go at all turns.




 
I was so pleased how this run was perfect for runners and walkers. Everyone was so supportive no matter which one you were. Here is my sweet Eddie crossing the finish line!

 
After the run there were tents set up with lots of food.



 
We were hot and ready for a rest after our run.

 

 
I believe next year I am bringing one of the large beach umbrellas to sit under while we cool down. It really did heat up and there was little shade but still lots of fun.



Interesting fact about me, I lift my big toe when I run. Look how I have a this hole in my shoe. All of my running shoes have this hole in them in the same spot. Strange......

 
Then we went home showered and went out to dinner after a hard day of running!

 
Awesome race and I highly recommend it! We cant wait until next year!
