I hope you'll share a little bit about your week in the comments, or anything exciting you're up to this weekend! But for now, it's time to jump out of this awkward intro and into some Friday Five.
one // I shared my November goals on Monday. One of them was to hop on board with 5K training, since I want to run a sub 25 by the end of the year. So - on Tuesday I registered for the 2 I know I'll run and on Wednesday I did my first real speed workout in a while. It was tough, but I nailed it and I'm excited about what a few weeks of hard work could do!
two // I made Brittany's Pumpkin Spice Blondie Recipe last Sunday. The recipe was simple and didn't require an extra trip to the store. I subbed out all the spices for Pumpkin Pie Spice & added a generous 1/4 cup of pumpkin puree to the batter, but they were a HIT. So, I made them again on Wednesday night for a Fall tailgate at work & doubled the recipe. Delicious. Highly recommend.
three // Ciara & I headed to Ohiopyle last weekend to hike. I got us lost-ish when we went straight instead of right & doubled our intended hiking mileage. Oops. But, we did see some great views. And seriously earned the Reuben, tater tots & pumpkin ice cream I face planted into at the end of our hike.
four // I wake up Wednesday morning, go to grab my lunch from the fridge and find this "love note" - after I replaced the empty hand soap in the bathroom with hand soap from the storage closet, which happened to be Bath & Body Works Peppermint scented...so, I lovingly wrote back "Welcome to the rest of your life" & chuckled as I headed out the door. :)
five // And, drum roll please, some funnies...
A few days past Halloween, but still, all the decorations seem to be out...
And...this one goes out to all the people in my office who instant message me, to ask for my extension so they can call to see if I got their email. Why yes, yes I did.
