A dog stroller and Snickerdoodle Muffins!

This is a fun picture I took of my daughter Sloan and her very spoiled schnauzer Fifi! You can't tell from the picture, but Fifi is due to have puppies sometime in the next week or so. I'll share a picture of the puppies soon!

This is Bella on the right, she's the dog we've been doggy sitting. She thinks she's little!

Now, on to the muffins! My daughter Sloan is a very picky eater and didn't want to taste these muffins because they didn't have any chocolate in them! Being the mean mom that I am, I made her take a bite! She loved them! She said they tasted like cookies! Cookies for breakfast? Nah, they're just Snickerdoodle Muffins! I told you that I'm a mean mom!

Usually when I fix muffins for breakfast, the kids know I'm going for a run and that's what I'm off doing this morning! The marathon is coming up! I have a couple of friends that haven't done a marathon before, so I told them we'd train together and we'd do it together! It's been so much more fun having company on long runs!

The snickerdoodle's are stirring up my sweet tooth! I just became a "Songberries" follower.
