Friday Things

It's November 1st - happy November!! The best month in my opinion! ;) It could, possibly have to do with the fact that my birthday is this month, and the holiday craziness begins with Thanksgiving, which equals lots of family time. It's such a great month!!

It's also Friday and I actually see some peeks of blue sky, which hopefully means the sun will come out today. It's been a very gray week here in Minnesota! Despite the gray skies, it hasn't been a bad week (thank goodness!); here are the good things from this week for the high five for Friday linkup!

Of course, my most favorite thing of the week (and all of October and probably fall!) is running my first half marathon. It was such a spectacular experience. I can't explain how fulfilled I feel after accomplishing that goal. You can read all about it here!

Yesterday, of course, was Halloween. I don't hand out candy (a dog who barks every time the doorbell rings + a neighbor who hates me my dog = no bueno), but I did receive a treat! The October Scentsy scent of the month is heavenly; perfect scent for this time of year!

Since my hair is getting longer, I've been playing around with different hairstyles lately. I found a new braid technique on Pinterest that I love - it's so easy and looks so cute! I still need some practice though.

Let's talk about the perfect snack. I love popcorn, peppermint and white chocolate so I HAD to buy this once I spotted it in the grocery store. It's like the taste of the holidays explode in my mouth! If you see it, try it!! It's gluten free, non-GMO and absolutely delicious!!

I've been taking it easy getting back into running after last Saturday's half marathon, mostly because my body is making me, and Mercedes is enjoying the extra cuddle time. I think she would prefer me to never leave the house!

I hope you all had a wonderful week and enjoyed your Halloween! Make sure to check out my other posts from this week:

Until next time~
