Happy Friday! This weekend is our biggest Halloween weekend yet! We have lots planned.
Tonight, we have a Halloween game planned by my grandparents. Saturday we have our big Halloween party and costumes will be revealed. And Sunday we have our annual pumpkin carving and Halloween food night.
It’s going to be a super busy weekend but tons of fun!
- My Family
I am very lucky to such a close family, even if we get a little crazy around the holidays! Tonight, I am looking forward to our annual Halloween game. My aunt and uncle are even flying in from California to join in all the Halloween fun!
My dad first had the idea of doing a Halloween game a few years ago. He did the game the first year which included a lot of clues and finding certain items, scavenger hunting, and trivia.
The game begins…
My sister-in-law hosted the game the next year and she made it more of an Amazing Race style game…complete with having to lie inside a coffin.
There was a camera in the coffin so everyone could watch you freak out from the outside.
I made up the game last year and it was a huge scavenger hunt with mini games along the way.
One of the scavenger hunt items was to find a black cat.
This year my grandparent’s are hosting the game and I am really excited to play tonight!
- The Gym
I really do love the gym. I workout about 5 days a week.
Yesterday, I was finally able to walk one mile on the treadmill since having hip surgery…so of course, I had to take a bathroom selfie.
After having hip surgery and not being able to do much of anything for awhile, I really appreciate the fact that I can workout. Being stuck in bed is no fun and I don’t take being able to workout for granted.
I used to be able ti run miles and now my biggest accomplishment is being able to walk one mile without stopping. But it’s progress and that’s what’s important.
- Throwback Pictures
I posted this old picture on Instagram yesterday. I love looking at old pictures of my kids and seeing how much they’ve grown, especially Jacob.
Jacob was probably about two or three in this picture and it’s amazing seeing him grow since he was only 1 lb and 14 oz when he was born. He was a micropreemie and I love seeing him go from being tiny to a toddler to a teenage.
And I look really young in that picture. That’s a plus.
Fun Fact: Jacob has been wearing glasses since he was 6 months old. People always used to ask me if he was wearing real glasses. No, I put fake glasses on my infant. Yes, they’re real.
- Shamrock Farms Rockin’ Refuel
I found these protein drinks at the grocery store and I bought one to try. They are delicious and I love that they have 20 grams of protein. I have been drinking one after my workout.
I’m off to the gym this morning and then I have a bunch of errands to run to get ready for this weekend! Have a great Friday!!
