Finally fall!

Fall is my favorite season. I love being able to wear hoodies and flip flops simultaneously. I love the crisp air, nature's color palate, and not to mention.... fall food!

I'm ready for all things pumpkin, apple cider, candy corn and peanuts, and squash. 

As I write, I am waiting for some pumpkin muffins to finish baking. Yum!

And I'm especially looking forward to long walks outside. It's perfect walking weather and my husband is FINALLY home to stay after almost a year of working away. Yay! 

What are you looking forward to about fall? Any favorite fall recipes? Feel free to share in the comments!

Ideas for the Thankful Healthy Blogger 5K

I’m starting to think about the Thankful Healthy Blogger 5K again this year and would like your opinions.

For anyone new to the blog, this is an annual virtual 5K that I host.  This will be the fourth year! And I do plan to host it again this year. It’s a fun event with prizes that is held on Thanksgiving Day—in an effort to keep us out of a food coma and get some exercise in.

In previous years, I have had prize packs to give away.  Last year, quite a few sponsors generously donated prizes. I always came up with one big prize pack of items that I provided with my own money too.

But I got to thinking—would all of you like prize packs or would you like gift cards as prizes? If gift cards, would you like one big ($100 or so) gift card to one winner or break them up into smaller amounts with more winners.

I am one to prepare ahead—which is why I’m asking this far in advance!

Any other ideas to make this 5K better than all of the last?  Last year, someone suggested that t-shirts be made for the event—would you buy one? I’m not sure how much something like that costs—but what would be the avg. price you’d be willing to pay?

Let me know your thoughts!
