I hope you all had an amazing Halloween weekend! I see so many people on Instagram already putting up the Christmas stuff! I’m going to ride fall out until after Thanksgiving. I hurry up and click out of Christmas posts because I don’t want to get into the holiday spirit just yet!
Before I start today’s recap blog, I wanted to mention two things!
- Bookclub picks will be announced on Wednesday! 😊
- I hope you checked out my new post about editing photos + if you didn’t see the announcement, my presets are finally available!
Now, let’s get this recap post started!
Most of my week was spent behind the computer screen working on the launch of my preset shop, walking outside, planning some holiday projects, catching up on book club, playing piano, and walking!
In the past few weeks, I’ve had the weirdest pain/electricity feeling in my leg throughout the day. It turns out I have a herniated disk that causes sciatica. I’ll be doing a lot of stretching, walking (with good posture and good shoes), and taking it easy on strength training for a while. It’s gotten a bit better since taking some medicine and applying heat, but it’s such a weird and uncomfortable feeling.
The more walking I do, the better it gets.
For dinner on Monday night, I made spaghetti squash with turkey and garlic tomato sauce. I ate this for dinner just about every single night this week, which is why I don’t have a ton of dinner pictures to share.
And Monday & Tuesday nights are always dedicated to Dancing with the Stars & The Bachelorette. (let me know in the comments if you’re watching either show and what your thoughts are!) Lots of errands on Tuesday! I have been SO obsessed with Suja’s Organic Probiotic Juice lately. This flavor and the lemon cayenne are my favorites. The Mint Perfect bars are also delicious! I had to pick something up since I was out too long, and it’s never good to go to a grocery store hungry. On Tuesday night, I fit in 7 miles with my neighbor! The walks always go by so fast because we talk a lot, and there is so much to look at in the neighborhood! Plus, we have the trails by the water.
Popcorn, tea, and The Bachelor to end the evening!Fast-forward to Halloween!
I spent ALL weekend cleaning the house! If you follow me on Instagram, you saw the mess! I did some fun “tap to clean” stories! If you need any cleaning inspo, watch those!
Our neighborhood did the trick or treat and reverse trick or treat. Most houses set out candy on the porch or a table at the end of the driveway. For kids who were not participating, they left a “reverse trick or treating” sign for people to drop off candy to them.
My neighbors went all out! The entire neighborhood was decorated and transformed into a spooky place to trick or treat. I had fun walking around the neighborhood and checking out all the decorations.
My dogs were not fans of my hat. I had to take it off around them because they just kept barking at it. 😆🍂Those leaves!
We ordered grilled chicken salads and buffalo wings from Killington’s for dinner!
I made some Harney & Son’s cinnamon tea (it tastes like red hots! 😋) and headed out for a long walk around the hood! If you’re in the market for a good tea, this one is it. I have hooked SO MANY people on it! I had another tap to clean the day on Sunday!
The first thing I did was take down ALL the Halloween decorations. I’m so happy to say goodbye to those cobwebs and bats. While working a bit on the computer, I had a fresh-pressed juice! It had carrots, lemon, cayenne, celery, cucumber, ginger, and water. I run water through the juicer at the end to grab all the extra pieces hanging around. Ignore the hair! 😆 but the pups sat next to me so I had to get a picture. After doing more cleaning on Sunday, I meal prepped a salad for the week and made pumpkin muffins. I’ll make sure to get those recipes up asap!
I hope you all have a fantastic week! The book club will be announced on Wednesday! no questions
