Friday Five

1. Chocolate Tunnel Cake = Chocolate Puddle Cake    I had such high hopes for this recipe.  Everything went as planned I baked it exactly as the book stated.  Took it out of the oven and it was beautiful.  Turned the pan over and it came right out onto the cooling rack, it was such a great feeling.  Then I took the pan off and the great feeling was running through the cooling rack onto the counter.  To make matters worse I thought I could still get a decent photo walked away for a couple minutes and my son decided to peck at it leaving craters in it.  It still tasted heavenly.

2. Did you hear that Kim Zolciak Bierman had a stroke after Dancing With the Stars? She is only 37!!!!!
I just started watching Don't Be Tardy, which is a reality show with her in it and it is so funny.  She is going to be fine, but it made me realize how grateful I am for my health. How sweet is this photo of her and her husband Kroy Bierman (plays for the Atlanta Falcons) in the hospital bed with her..

3. Pumpkin spice has gone too far. It never ceases to amaze me how much companies try to profit off of everything.  I think having a few options of pumpkin spice items is fine but here is proof that it has gone too far: 

Cat litter, dog treats, and the last one makes my stomach turn.

4. I am gettting a new computer this weekend and I am so excited, because blogging from an IPAD has not been easy.  I had a really nice laptop and I let my son borrow it.....broke it....and I never replaced it.  I am not sure which one I am going to get so I will be out today looking.  If you have any suggestions I would greatly appreciate them :)

5. I have a race next weekend in Hernando Mississippi 10k which I was hoping to PR.  Yesterday while running that sharp pain came back in my calf.  So I am going to the doctor this morning to get some answers.  The whole moody muscle thing is not going to work this time.  However, I did walk back home from my half mile run, jumped in the shower and still made it to spin class. I call that a win.

What type of computer do you blog from? Any suggestions?
When is your next race?
Any funny baking fails?
