Recapping our week on the blog! Walks and lunch outside, one book down, pumpkin chai, and a pumpkin patch.
Monday October 2
Started out the morning with a workout on the Nike fit app. Watered the flowers on the back deck, I’ve been neglecting them lately, but it’s hard to decide if I should let them go or keep watering them. Lately, Huxley never wants to go inside it’s very hard to get him to come in after you get him out. He loves to watch anyone cut their grass; he will literally watch out the window until they are done. When Hadley got home from school, she changed her clothes, combed her hair, and started her homework outside in the garage. She is the best at homework, and I cross my fingers a lot that it continues as she gets older. And, on this day fourteen years ago Kevin and I had our first date. I posted some throwback photos in this post if you’d like to check them out!
Tuesday October 3
Started out the morning by walking at the trail after we dropped off Hadley at school. Ate lunch outside, and Huxley ate his entire lunch! Some days he’s an awesome eater, and other days he isn’t. Eating lunch outside, where he can walk around, seemed to get him to eat just about everything. He loves outside! And I finished a book! The first book I’ve read in years, and it was pretty good. I’m on this Colleen Hoover kick and going to try to read all of her books in order!
Wednesday October 4
Started out the morning by walking around the neighborhood. After Kevin got home and slept a little, I went and got my nails done. And then walked around Target for a little bit. Our Target has Starbucks inside, and they let me taste the pumpkin chai foam and it was delicious! It’s going to be my next drink! later on, after I got home, Kevin and the kids made chocolate chip cookies for our new neighbors. We gave them a little goodie bag, you can read more in this post. And since it had been a while, we went to Cancun for dinner.
Thursday October 5
Started out the morning by doing a workout on the Nike training app. Somedays I feel like it’s such a waste of time, but I keep on going. I really need to work on my eating habits more, but with anything, it’s all a process with my brain! Huxley outside watching Kevin cut the grass. It was lunch time, and to get him to eat I put his lunch on top of one of my fall bins right by the window and he was in heaven. Huxley standing on the chair at the kitchen table, and all his little facial expressions like he knows he shouldn’t be up there.
Friday October 6
Started out the morning by doing a workout on the Nike training app. And then after Hadley got home, we basically were outside until bedtime. We ordered a pizza for dinner and ate it outside in the garage. After Huxley went to bed, Hadley and I just chilled on the couch. She watched her iPad, and I read my book!
Saturday October 7
Went to a funeral in the morning, one of my high school friends lost her brother. It was sad, but the weather was beautiful. Funerals are hard, and I’m thinking of her and her family. When I got home, we hung out for a little bit, Hadley finished another book, and then we went to Kroger for a few things. The beverage aisle where they have cold drinks have these new electronic glass doors where it has a screen to tell you what’s inside. Started my second book of the month! I’m just amazed at myself, if this time last year someone was to tell me I’d be reading two books in one month I would’ve said you’ve got to be kidding me! After dinner, Kevin and Hadley went to a bonfire for a little bit and no photos were taken (mostly because I wasn’t there, the Dad’s never take pictures!).
Sunday October 8
There was a knock at the door, and we found two little bags of goodies for Hadley and Huxley. We got booed by our neighbors’ grandkids. It was cute. After Huxley’s nap, we ventured out to a pumpkin patch. We took a hayride out to the pumpkins, picked out two small ones. Tried to do a pumpkin maze and didn’t get very far. And then walked around a little bit, looked at some farm animals, played on the playground, and then we went home. Watched the Bengals game, and we won!
Happy Tuesday everyone, have a great week! And as always, thanks for reading!
