Local Pumpkin beers

I have been"brewing" an idea for a future blog. I am really wanting to do a local (St. Louis and surrounding) pumpkin beer taste off. So far I have this list of contenders:


Anyone else know of any other local places with pumpkin brew? Last I checked with Square One no one really knew if they were doing pumpkin this year.

Clearly, we are idiots

My husband recently created a Facebook page last week to promote himself as a DJ. He has been checking it on and off on my laptop, but to near the degree that I check mine.

He also feels the need to tell me every time he goes on to Facebook, like I'm going to be proud or something. Last night I was hanging out on the couch and he plops down with my laptop and says, "Going on Facebook..." I don't pay much attention until he goes to his requests page and starts naming off all the applications and requests that have been waiting for him the past few days.

Then he starts not recognizing names. I recognize them, because many of them are internet friends or high school friends he has never met. Nathan is ranting about having to keep hitting ignore and getting some many requests in such a little time and I kept thinking, "Why did these people send Nathan this stuff...they aren't friends and he has never met them. I didn't even know you could send people those stupid things without being their friends in the first place!"

Two minutes later Nathan abruptly stops his rant and gets that look on his face. Those of you that are married know EXACTLY the look I am talking about. The, "I just did something really stupid and I am going to have to admit it to my wife."

"Uh, honey, I was signed in as, um, I hope I didn't screw up your page....."

Clearly, we are idiots.

Roxie and Lila

I really try hard to not play favorites with the dogs, but I would be lying if I said it wasn't tough. Roxie is technically Nathan's dog, and Lila is my dog. Technically being the key word. Because I am pretty partial to Roxie right now. Lila is still in the midst of her crazy puppy behaviors while Roxie really only has one major downfall. Anyone that has ever met Roxie knows this downfall. She jumps all over everyone and wants nothing more than to lick everyone to death. I would like to think she is getting better, but she still has a long way to go. But I digress.....

Anyway, Roxie is also a little more photogenic. While I do think Lila is cute, ever since Lila's ears have stayed up she looks like an alien dog. Case and point:

Total alien dog right? Yes, she's cute and totally lady like with her legs crossed (takes after her mother, obviously. But the crazy little face makes her look non-canine for sure.

But now we have Roxie. One of the cutest sleeping dogs ever! And if you have been reading the blog awhile you have seen some great Roxie pics of her smiling and cute in addition to sleeping.
So much weird cuteness I can barely stand it!!

I really do enjoy blogging, I swear!

I have written at least half a dozen posts in the last 3 weeks and haven't completed a single one. I pretty much hated all of them, and just felt like I was rambling on and on and not being very entertaining therefore none of them were finished.

In simple terms, life is good. I've had a busy few weeks that have included lots of family and friends so that has been great. However, I am exhausted and realizing more and more that I am the type of person that needs to have more "free" days that include nothing more than doing a few things around the house, maybe an errand or two, and possibly going for a run.

Speaking of running, it is completely taking over my life. While you may think that is an exaggeration, it isn't far from the truth. I think about running all the time. I talk about running to friends, family, strangers I meet, really anyone that will listen. I don't know exactly how to put it into words, but I think running is becoming my new food.

I know that may sound confusing but if you know me in real life or have been reading this blog from its early beginnings, you know I am a self proclaimed foodie. I would think, read, and talk about food all the time. I enjoyed it, I obsessed over perfect recipes and I would get a ton of a rush from a perfected dish or a compliment on one of my dishes. While I still love to cook and still love a good recipe and a compliment I haven't really "thought" about food even half as much as I did a few months ago.

I don't foresee this change going away anytime soon, so I have been debating about starting a separate blog about my experiences running including some upcoming races. I personally never thought doing two blogs would be for me, but my running experiences are pretty far from what Eating, Drinking, and Being Married was originally supposed to be about. Then again, I think one of them getting neglected is a big possibility.

I'm completely torn so I would love anyone with thoughts on the matter to leave them in the comment section. Thanks!
