Live Midget Wrestling and Other Sunday Things

Let me address the title of this post. So today I went on a bike ride with a local bike club. There is one stretch of road where people always make homemade signs. They are mostly for home or car repairs, bar specials, garage sales, etc. But today, there was on that caught my eye… “Live Midget Wrestling.” I almost fell off my bike I was laughing so hard. According to the sign, it took place on Friday night… too bad I missed it! Maybe next time. I wish I had a picture, but photos + biking = potential crash.

The rest of my day wasn’t nearly as exciting. I woke up at 6 am to fuel up before my ride. I was super psyched because I had made my breakfast the night before.

I will definitely be repeating this breakfast. The bread was also a perfect excuse to test out my new mini holiday loaf pan.

It was a perfect day for riding.

Not a cloud in the sky:)

We covered about 42 miles. We were really booking it in parts. I hit 23 mph for a little while. I was exhausted by the end. Maybe I shouldn’t have pushed myself after trying an Insanity workout for the first time yesterday. Tomorrow is definitely a much-needed rest day.

Coconut Chocolate Chip! I plan on ordering a case of these. The flavor blew me out of the water. The coconut was very natural tasting and not at all overpowering.

After my ride I hit the grocery store. I loved the seasonal decorations.

My afternoon was spent doing typical Sunday things: cleaning, laundry, lounging, and baking.

20111016-094042.jpgI had a “slice” of my raw apple pie for dessert. I am slowly working through my apple haul:)¬† Although the slices didn’t hold together, it was still incredible. I will be posting the recipe this week.

And now I want to leave you with a fun holiday activity. YumSugar is having a Halloween Candy Bracket contest. It’s like a sports bracket, but instead of pitting teams against each other, each match is between two different candies! You just pick which candy you like better in each round. My winner was Peanut M&Ms. Just for playing you get entered to win a year’s supply of candy from Dylan’s Candy Bar! Click on the link below to play.
