WIAW: Halloween!

So two posts in one day! Woah, look at me go.

haha well it’s partially due to the fact that hurricane = no school and hurricane = me not having a prior WIAW done.

Plus, I wanted to show you all my fabulous Halloween treats, they’re actually not that exciting.

Thanks to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for hosting What I Ate Wednesdays- go check her out!

This morning when I woke up, I was freezing so I laid in bed for a while after I turned my heater on. Pretty soon, I got kind of hungry and rainy days/snowy days/any type of bad weather makes me crave pancakes. So in honor of the last couple days, that’s exactly what I had. Topped with some almond butter for a little more protein and honey.

After breakfast, I did some studying and then hit the gym for a much need lonnnggg workout. I’ve been trying to squeeze in pockets of exercise here and there but nothing beats a some cardio, some circuit work, and some ab work in an environment built for just that.

I was then starving so I heated up some Trader Joe’s Butternut Squash soup, made a small spinach salad, and added a yogurt, pretzel rods and coffee to round out my lunch. Delicious and filling!

I had to tutor around 3 so I dug into my Halloween treats for a little pick me up: Dots!

After two hours of tutoring, I was both hungry and thirsty so came home, chugged some water, and heated up a pesto pizza. I snacked on some carrots while I waited, and chopped up an apple to go with it.

This lovely maple walnut blondie and a banana were dessert!

Plans for the rest of the night include but aren’t limited to: Watching It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, tea, and possibly more Halloween goodies.

Not all mine- I promise!

Did you have any fun Halloween treats?

Happy Halloween!

Hey everyone!

Sandy’s to blame for my absence but hopefully I’ll get back on track soon and also post a WIAW post later this evening.

No power outages for me. I left Sunday to stay at my aunt and uncles after several freak-outs and I’m so glad I did. I felt so much more safe and secure and my younger cousins distracted any anxiety right out of me!

board games for the bored!

I stayed there until Tuesday afternoon when most of the storm had passed. Thankfully, there was little damage that I saw and both my aunt and uncle’s house and my grandparent’s house were fine and had power. I know some of my other relatives on the eastern coast lost some power and were hit hard by the rain but everything was manageable.

So now it’s Halloween! I’m not a HUGE fan of dressing up but love the holiday for the decorations and candy and enjoy seeing little ones dress up. I did have a costume for the weekend: a bumblebee, which I loved a little too much especially for being diy.

And hopefully tonight, my housemates and I will pull together some loofah costumes…fingers crossed!

In honor of the holiday, I whipped up some pumpkin pancakes with a Trader Joe’s mix and enjoyed a couple treats that my mom sent!

Happy Halloween!
