Good morning everybody. I am up early as usual and am blessed to have my fall allergies and asthma in full swing. I hate hay. It's a good thing I'm not a horse or other farm animal. We spent the day at the pumpkin patch farm yesterday. The kids had a blast. They got to pet the goats and rabbits and pig. See chickens. They have a maze for them to run through. They made a scarecrow. And everyone came home with a pumpkin.
I came home with a pumpkin and plenty of wheezing. The hay ride is no barrel of laughs for me. It always sets my asthma off and this is no different. But, the things we do for our kids, right? I picked up some cute white mini pumpkins and fall corn for my table centerpiece. I also came home with some acorn squash and carnival pumpkins to try. Apparently these little pumpkins taste like sweet potatoes when baked so I was sold on trying them. I'll take some pictures and let you know how they turn out.
Diet wise I stayed in the challenge goals. I ate a little more than usual yesterday since I came home to fresh and warm from the oven pumpkin bread. (Have i told you lately how much I LOVE my nanny?) I had a slice for snack. Still my calories were at my goal of 1375. I drank about 96 ounces of water. I did a lot of walking with the kiddos. And over all it was a good day.

Last night we went to my son's last home game and they WON! Yeah. Finally. Poor kids. They've come so close several times, but this is the first win. The majority of kids on the team have never played before and it took a while for everyone to "get it". My son was so proud. Daddy took him to Braums's for ice cream. I didn't go since I had to get the girls home and ready for bed AND the tiny detail of me eating my weight in Braum's ice cream when I am overly happy and tired. No go on the Braum's. Even though my husband called and asked if I wanted anything. "No. Thanks, hon for asking." Get used to saying it. It really works.
Well, I'm off to work. First game World Series and I bought a NLCS CHAMPS shirt today so I'll wear it tomorrow instead of the plain Rangers I'm wearing today. SO cool that I don't have to worry so much about finding my size anymore as everywhere generally has the regular XL. Yeah me!
I'm pretty high right now from my inhalers, so I've got the shakes. I better stop typing and get to work. Have a great day everyone!
