Here are some long over due shots from the pumpkin carving party.. Funny that I have absolutely no pictures of the people or the food- but I think the pumpkins say a lot about those who carve them:
This drunken beaut was carved by our friend Chris- Came out awesome and left a mess on the deck. :)
It’s getting to that time of year when it’s cold enough to make you want to stay in bed- for fear that you’ll freeze to the toilet seat first thing in the AM.. Though I don’t have to pay for heat in the apartment (Hurray for everything being included!) I don’t have to worry about it- However.. at our house- we DO have to pay for oil heat- which is super expensive.. along with the fact that the whole front of our house is made of cobble stone… Yes I think I may have frozen to the seat before. I hate having to get bundled up to go to the gym..
Since it was a bit warmer for Halloween I got to rock my lovely Frye boots.. Any excuse to wear them is a good one (especially since I’m still trying to convince James that the $300+ that they cost was worth it.. it totally was BTW)
For a while now I’ve been doing some strength training as I mentioned.. which had lead me to read a TON about the amount of protein I should be getting to support my workout efforts. I’ve been looking at a ton of powders and while I haven’t decided on a powder that I would be using daily I did some across this Cookies and Cream protein… and couldn’t help myself.. One scoop in a cup of Almond milk with a few cubes of ice and it was YUM! Thank you 25g of protein..
I was pretty excited because I just purchased this GE personal blender (comparable to the magic bullet that I don’t want to spend $50 on- I got this 17 piece set for $18!!) This thing is amazing.. it works better than any other blender I’ve had I swear!!
After sipping on my protein shake I headed to the house to get my make up on.. No we weren’t going anywhere or doing anything but giving out candy and having some wine with dinner- but I wanted to be in the spirit! This was just my second attempt (the first attempt was seen in the last post)
How was your Halloween?!?
