Bob and Jillian

Matt and I went to a costume party at Charlie and Shannon's on Friday night.  It was a lot of fun (we won the pumpkin carving constest -woohoo!).  We dressed up as Bob and Jillian, the trainers from the Biggest Loser.  The easy part of it was the outfit.  The hard part for me was trying to match her attitude. …

Two paths diverging in the wood…

Today Matt and I tried to jog (the sidewalks were just too slippery so we walked). We moved onto the bike path because it was less slick. It was funny to us when we passed a biker coming towards us who apparently found the sidewalk better than the bike path. We just sort of grinned stupidly as he rode by,…
