I Finally Wore a Scarf!

How is this already the last weekend in October? Where the heck did this month go?! I'm pretty sure I blinked and missed this month. And, taking a look ahead at next month, every single weekend is already booked with fun plans. Just looking at our November calendar makes me tired.


It's Friday and that can only mean one thing. Time to throw a few high-fives up.

1. The weather around these parts has FINALLY resembled that of fall. The temps cooled off so much that I was finally able to wear a scarf! It's supposed to warm up again this weekend (whomp whomp), but I'm hoping the warm-up is just an unseasonable fluke.
2. Grandma Kathy, in all her sewing wizardry, once again made our Halloween costumes. They arrived in the mail and are SO AWESOME! I cannot wait for their big reveal. Until then, here's a sneak peek at Marcus' costume. 
3. I've been recruiting running buddies to join me in a few different races (Amie, Allison, Mateya!). So far I have interest in the Kansas City Hospital Hill Half (Saturday, June 7), the Disney Land Half (Sunday, August 13), and the Disney World Goofy Challenge (January 2015). And, I'm sure there will be a few more miles sprinkled in there. Who's joining in the fun? 
4. We are thrilled that Grandma Katie and Aunt Susan are visiting us this weekend! Not only does Marcus get some quality time with his grandma and aunt, this also means I can get a grande pumpkin spice latte and lazily stroll around Target run to the grocery store without the little man. It is like a mini vacation! 

5. Because of our very welcome visitors, Scott and I are sneaking away to Hollywood, Saturday through Sunday. We're headed to the Hollywood Bowl to catch the Zac Brown Band. Scott is so pumped to see this band. I'm still undecided if I'm more excited about the band, or the fact that we're staying overnight, and we can sleep in until 7:00 if we want!
Have a great weekend!


  1. Ohh..... maybe we'll meet you in Orlando for that one and run that one with you!!

  2. OMG. I'm so jealous you're seeing Zac Brown Band. Of all the concerts I've been to, and I've been to a lot, I've never seen them! I'm dying to! There are plans in the works to see them next summer though!

  3. Sounds like a great weekend! Have a great time!

  4. Hell yes! Enjoy your weekend away! I would normally complain about how jealous I am, but I DID just get a week off from being mom. ;)

  5. have fun! sounds like it will be a great time! cant wait to see pictures from Halloween :)
    we are taking Marissa trick or treating Sunday and I cant wait to see her all dressed up!

  6. Yay...for the scarf!! I can not wait to see the little M&M...he is going to be as sweet as candy!! (yes..pun was intended there!!)

  7. Yay for family in town!!! Little breaks like that are so needed! Enjoy your time with your hubby kiddo free!

  8. Enjoy your free time!!!! The concert will be a blast!

  9. I am soooo jealous that your weather was cool enough for a scarf. Is it ever going to cool down here?! (Please don't remind me that I was saying this when January rolls around and I'm complaining of being cold.)

  10. How fun! I love ZBB. I can't wait to see the costume. I used my mad crafty skills at the store when I bought Brady a spiderman costume and Molly a tinkerbell costume. Don't be jealous!

  11. If you do a race at Disney World, I can join you for that! I am only a few hours away from Orlando. Eric is running the WDW Marathon in January for his first marathon. I have heard the Disneyland Half is a lot of fun as well.

    cant wait to see the costumes! i hope you and scott enjoyed yourselves!
