Hope everyone had a great Halloween yesterday!
This little owl finally delivered my Hogwarts letter — although she’s pretty terrible at her job, tbh, since it arrived about 19 years late. Good thing she’s so cute!
While it wasn’t technically Penny’s 1st Halloween, we did take her trick or treating for the first time, and it was so much fun! Even if she still didn’t really have any idea what was going on, or why I kept putting the hood of her costume back up every time she ripped it off.
We made it to six whole houses around the neighborhood, and by the last couple she was starting to get the idea of walking up to the door and holding out her bucket, so I’d call it a rousing success!
And while it wasn’t Penny’s first Halloween, it was her cousin Marnie’s!
So we got some more use out of Penny’s unicorn costume from last year, and the two of them together was honestly almost too much cuteness to handle.
The weather yesterday was also pretty much perfect. After so many days of wet, chilly, dreary weather, the warm, sunny, and beautiful Autumn day was such a welcome surprise!
My parents and I took advantage pre-trick-or-treating by taking Penny, Harry the lion, and Daxter the Monkey out for a nice leisurely walk.
Between Halloween, regular work stuff, and my coworker’s big event that I’m helping out at today, this week has been crazy busy. Actually, the weekend was jam-packed, too! My dad’s birthday was on Saturday, and then on Sunday, Sean and I tried to take in more Halloweeny goodness with Penny (though the event we went to was so crazy packed, we barely spent any time there at all, lol.)
Throw in a couple playdates, and things have actually been non-stop for a while! Which, of course, explains why I haven’t been back here to blog in a while, and also sadly why thus far this week I’ve only been able to work out once.
Luckily (?) the workout was a barre class taught by my friend on Monday, and it kicked my butt so hard that I’m still pathetically sore today. And these big Yelper Party events like the one I’m off to shortly tend to easily make me double my daily steps (and then some), so at least I’ll still be shaking out some of this soreness?
This weekend brings more fun and craziness with it, with Sean’s birthday, a friend’s birthday party, brunch, and then my own event on Monday night. But next week Penny and I are headed back to visit my sister, so just powering on through ’til then!
Happy November, everyone!
