Due to a job change I had to switch gyms. It worked out perfectly because my favorite trainer from my old gym opened a new one 6 miles from my house.
He is just starting out and adding clients, and I am typically the only one at his 6:30 p.m. class. Tonight that really sucked in a good way.
Couldn’t find Ella. She was upstairs waiting for us to go to bed.
I am not the most creative person in the world, so with that said I am pretty proud of these cookies.
These were made using the concept of the peanut butter cookie with the chocolate Hershey’s kiss in the middle. The cookie portion for these is a ginger cookie and the kiss is a Hershey’s pumpkin spice kiss.
After baking the ginger cookie, I pressed the kiss into the still warm cookie. I then threw them in the freezer and let the kiss firm up again. These kisses will melt into a glob if you don’t throw them in the freezer for around ten minutes. I would call these a win.

I asked about family hierarchy.
My question why is TBobby ahead of me?
T-Bobby and I headed out to an Oktoberfest party. I feel kinda pretty.
Hey, I found this really awesome Etsy listing at
This morning we were informed of Matt’s orders. He is moving to Groton, Connecticut and is assigned to the USS New Hampshire, which is an attack sub. We also learned that on Friday, October 24th, he will graduate from prototype school with distinction, 2nd in his class. We are so proud of him.
I adjusted my hours this week and had my mornings off. I took Ella to the dog park this morning to wear her out some. Schools here are on break so she found three little boys and their Irish wolf hound and ran, chased, played with and herded them.
I returned home with her and she spent about half an hour trying to figure out which piece of furniture was going to be most comfortable for her to nap on. Above is Bob’s side of the bed.
On another note, tonight we find out where our oldest will be stationed for the Navy. It has me a little anxious.
Finally for those of you who don’t know, October 27th will start a new chapter in my life. I am leaving my current agency to go work for the state. I will be investigating insurance fraud and white collar crime. I have 4 working days left. I have very mixed emotions leaving but in my heart I know it is the right thing.
We know each other better than some of our closest friends and family with often times many miles between us. I am sure there are more than a few Tumblr’s that wish they could jump a plane and go be with LRG.
