{#1-Halloweens Past}
Halloween Collage
This is the first year Ryan and I are not dressing up and celebrating Halloween. I guess we’re getting old. We’ve had our share of fun over the past years though…

{#2-Halloween Present}
hocus pocus
Involved me eating too many Twix bars. Seriously way too many and watching some classic Halloween movies. I love Hocus Pocus almost more than Twix. This was followed by…

{#3-SCARY movies}

We have this ritual of watching scary movies on Halloween. It’s a once a year thing because I cannot handle it. I seriously freak out; heart pounding, screaming, eyes and ears covered. I really don’t like them, but make myself watch because I sort of like them. For the next month I will check closets, under beds, sleep with my phone…

In the scary movie above a tunnel blows up trapping people and zombies brutally chase and stab people (in the first half). Perfect for the Rails to Trails Half Marathon I’m running Sunday. Now I have to worry about tunnels blowing up and murderous zombies chasing and trying to kill me. This is why I can’t watch scary movies but once a year.

This means it is a great time of year to once again remember all the things we have to be thankful for. Last year we wrote it on the wall, literally. We plan to do this again as a daily reminder of the amazing life we live. Too often we take things in our life, big and little, for granted.

Happy Weekend!

I had never had roasted pumpkin seeds before this week so we made two kinds both with coconut oil-salted garlic and cinnamon.

{#3-Trying out my new fuel belt}
Honky Tonk Half Marathon 2
It did some moving, but that was more from my outfit than anything. I love how flat it sits on my hips and how roomy the pocket it. They thought of some great storage ideas here.

I’m so jealous of anybody that gets to do a Halloween race. I’ve always wanted to, but it just won’t work this year with cross country.

{#5-and the big news!}

My husband, with no prompting, begging, or mentioning it from me, is running a marathon with me this spring. I’m still shocked. I honestly did not expect this day to come, yet in a way I did. Lets hope our training together goes well.

Happy Weekend!
