Hello Fall?

25 Oct

I mean really.  It’s 70 something today and tomorrow it’s supposed to be in the 80’s!?  Really!?

Hey there!  It’s been awhile.  How are you? 

This weekend has been full of decorating and training.  We went for a short walk earlier in the week, 2.5 miles, just throughout the neighborhood.  I didn’t take any pictures because well the neighborhood is just not that exciting.  

 Thursday we went to Pilates/gymnastics with Margaryta.  She did a lot of core and balancing stuff and I could definitely feel it the next day. 

Just pretend that this is exactly what Leanne and I looked like while doing this


Shoulder stand

Saturday was yoga day.  We did a lot of basic stretching and sun salutations.  It was very relaxing… 

Also on Saturday we carved our pumpkin!  Bond didn’t quite know what to think about the whole pumpkin carving experience…

Gooey pumpkin hand!


Saying that out loud (GUTS!) so made me think of that old Nickelodeon TV show.  Anyone else remember it?  Anyone?

Aggro Crag!

Mike O’Malley was the host and the kids had to crazy sports competitions.  I’m pretty sure that my brother and I would “do” the games along with the kids on the show at home.  

Being helpful

Now, we have a scary looking pumpkin outside!

Sunday we walked and Fort Story and did the Osmathus trail as part of our miles.

This tree was not this way the last time we were through. Those termites must have been hungry!

Virginia Beach mermaid

That last picture of the mermaid…  That person has a bunch of cool stuff in their garden.  There is an iron skeleton and a bunch of other artwork, plus all the veggies and flowers they grow.   

Then of course after our walk we went to Starbucks for some coffee…

After that it was off to run errands and Michael’s, Trader Joes, and the Halloween store.  I saw these cool pumpkin luminaries that we are going to try and make out of the fake carveable pumpkins; hence Michael’s and the Halloween store. 

Delicious and I mean delicious food was made for dinner.  I made White Bean Chicken Chili, and Paula Deen’s hoecakes with pumpkin butter.  I seriously think I may be addicted to Trader Joe’s pumpkin butter.  It is sooo tasty; I could have eaten the entire jar!

Pumpkin butter, I love you!

We had a delicious weekend.  This week we need to get moving and do more walking!  The OBX half marathon is a mere 3 weeks away!
