Blogger Meet Up, 8 Miles, Remy Update

Hi Friends! Happy (almost) Halloween!! So the candy corn shots were a mix of candy corn vodka (seriously) and bailey's. So it tasted like a white Russian candy corn explosion. Fabulous, just fabulous. And Happy Friday indeed. I had a GREAT day today! Recap time:
  • Work + good meetings + a little bit of low-carb monster (which, by the way, has a new spout that allows you to reseal it = awesome)
  • 4.5-mile walk during lunch with Sharp Objects.
  • More work = day dragging on
  • Back to the gym (this time with Stacy!) for a .5-mile walk + 3-mile run. I hadn't run in 21 days (a little here and there - but not my schedule 10K-training runs!). I did it! Was it hard? Yes.... but I did it! I also did a shoulder/tricep/chest workout!
  • Then it was shower time and off to Eclipse de Luna for a blogger meet up!! I'll recap our evening tomorrow when I have pics (my camera was dead - SAD!!)
  • Now it's 10 p.m. and I just got home and Cush & Katie are here - yay - off to have a drinkie!!
Reuben + Remy Update
Reuben has discovered that little sis, Remy, can not get up on chairs. He taunts her while holding his new, too-large Halloween toy - an orange dachshund in a witch's hat
Thanks for taking this, Austin! I just about died when I saw it. So like Reubs. And if you said something to him he'd be all, "What? Me? No.... I didn't realize she couldn't get up here!" LOL

Q: Halloween Plans? We're in town and trying to lay low this weekend! I think we're going to dress the pups up to go visit with the Wilson's (Stacy & Shane) at their Halloween party, then tucking in early. Sunday I plan to go for a long walk with homecookedem and finish a video - WOOP! We also have the 311 show at The Fox - SO pumped.

Q: Favorite Halloween candy? Reese's cups - they're just amazing. Those miniature ones are my true enemy personal favorite.

It was so fun to see you again. I can't believe it's been a year!

Murphy loves those dog toys. He destroys them within minutes though.

That little Reuben! He's such a scamp!!! ;-)

Can't wait to see my grandpuppies in their halloween costumes!!!! :)

Low key Halloween this year but we carved pumpkins that we got last weekend at the pumpkin patch. That pic of remy & Reuben is soo funny! What a tease! Oh and fav Halloween candy def has to include chocolate & pb, chocolate & mint or chocolate and Carmel.

Gabriela said...

Okay, now I REALLY want a candy corn shot- it sounds delicious!! MY fave candy was definitely Reese's as well- though I also loved Butterfingers and Hershey's!

Tyler said...

I love peanut butter cups but the minis just don't do it for me. I don't really have any Halloween plans. I'm going out tonight for a friend's B-day but tomorrow I'll probably just chill. Maybe check on the little bro and sis in law!

Hope your weekend is fabulous! Tell Mr. Reuben to be a nice boy!

I am so happy to have met you last night!! I can't wait for the next time. It felt like we had known each other forever. :)

Joanne said...

Love the candy corn shots! Such a fabulous idea. One of my friends had a party last night and she just melted some candy corn into vodka. Not as tasty. By a long shot.

Mica said...

Agreed. Reese's cups are awesome. Do you like the regular size or the mini better?

Your dogs are too funny! I don't think Bodger is that smart...

Biz said...

I love that Reuben's toy is so big!!

Hope you had a great weekend - I've had exactly 3 trick or treaters, and I think that's about all I'll get! :(

Favorite candy? Baby Ruth!

I read your blog often but I am bad at leaving comments. I am trying to be better and reach out more in the blogging community. I am 5'2 and weigh 131. Last November I weighed 136and vowed I would get in shape. Well a year has gone by and I've only lost 5lbs. I take a lot of inspiration from your blog because I know you started around the same weight. If you have any tips so I can make my next year a better one I would really appreciate it. Thank you!

How fun! I love meeting bloggers in real life!

Kacy said...

Ah, jealous that you got to hang out with Em. I miss her already!

Hope you had a great weekend! Too cute about Rueben and Remy.
