Back to school

For the last year I have been considering going to grad school to further my career, I even took the GRE and filled out some applications. But after much thought I have decided to take some classes at a local community college to get more web knowledge – which is what I want more than anything right now. I’m back to school!monica ID 300x225 Back to school

I made pumpkin oatmeal cookies for a football party we were going to yesterday. I pretty much followed the recipe and they didn’t come out that great. They were good, but not great – which is what I require in a cookie icon smile Back to school I got the recipe from a book my aunt gave me when I visited CA. My cookies always come out too “cake-y”. Hmmmm.IMG 2273 300x225 Back to school

But, I’ve still be eating them like nothing! I need to stay away from these now! IMG 2275 300x225 Back to school

This morning I wanted to do something, but nothing to crazy – my legs were still tired from my 18 miler yesterday! I did 30 minute shred and called it a day.

I love weekend mornings because I have more time to cook up breakfast and make things I can’t have on a rushed weekend morning. I made an egg scramble, sandwich thin and a fruit salad. IMG 2281 300x225 Back to school

I have been a cleaning and organizing machine today! Now I am off to the store for some organizing essentials like files and a book shelf. I’m excited icon smile Back to school

    Congrats on going back to school!

    Cookies are like sex, when they’re good they’re really good. When they’re bad they’re still pretty good. ;)

    Woo for grad school (although not gonna lie, this time of the semester sucks).

    My cookies also always turn out too cakey! I have some in the oven right now (pumpkin oatmeal that I threw together). Too much egg maybe?

    I have the same problem with cookies! They are either too cakey, too gummy, or too burnt. I just have to accept that I am not a baker.

    Congrats on your 18 miler! I am training for a 15K in December and I am trying to get my mileage up there but man, I am a huge wuss because running is hard!
