5 Things Friday II

Happy Friday! Today is a very happy Friday indeed. We have lots of stuff going on this weekend, but it’s going to be a lot of fun. Let’s dive right in to 5 things Friday:

1.) My parents are coming in town tomorrow because…Saturday is Emma Kate’s first birthday party! Oh. my. gosh. This year yall, it’s just flown by. How do I have an almost one year old? I can’t even. but whether I like it or not, it’s coming, as are a lot of people to our house tomorrow! My guest bedroom has been the “staging area” for the past few weeks and I am hoping to get everything set up today while EK is at daycare. I will be glad to have this room back to normal and not looking like Mickey Mouse Clubhouse threw up in it.

2.) KT tape is hosting a photo challenge through September 21st at 11:59 PM PST. All you have to do is use a sharpie to write a motivational saying or doodle on your tape, post it on Instagram and hashtag #KTtape and #MYkttape to win some tape of your own! I sported my “finish strong” tape on my run on Wednesday.

3.) Now that EK is almost walking, we have a lot more fun at the park than we used to. We met a friend and her daughter there yesterday and the girls had so much fun! I see a lot more park visits in our future. I also got to run 5 miles with another friend and I pushed EK in her stroller. Man my calves were burning! Oh, we also took the babies to Orange Leaf. Emma Kate was not prepared for how cold the froyo was going to be.

4.) I am playing in my churches’ kickball league, and my life group (Sunday school class) has it’s own team. We are having a BLAST! We played a group of high schoolers on Monday night who called us OLD TIMERS! Oh, we ended up beating them. Ah, sweet victory! I have been bringing Builder’s bars to the games as a team snack and everyone loves them.

5.) We still have some hot days ahead of us (in the mid 90’s tomorrow for the party OF COURSE) but it is slowly starting to cool off in a general sense. I busted out my pumpkin Yankee Candle and bought a couple pumpkins for the front door. That plus football has me so excited for fall. Now, if Kroger would just get it’s act together and put out some pumpkin spice coffee creamer I would be a happy girl. Speaking of pumpkin spice, I just got some Advocare meal replacement shakes, they are SO GOOD! You can order some of your own HERE. Tastes like fall!

I am so excited about this morning, I am going to get a pedicure! My sweet friend Jen gave me a gift certificate for my birthday to a spa since we went and got pedicures in Disney World on my birthday last year. I haven’t had a pedicure since then, so I can’t wait to have pretty toes before going into labor. 🙂 I also plan to get my first Pumpkin Spiced Latte of the year. Iced, of course. It’s WAY too hot for hot coffee here!

Speaking of Which…

Pumpkin Spice coffee creamer. I love it. I will buy bottles of the stuff so I have plenty even after the holidays are over. It’s quite sad, but it literally starts my day off great and I am in such a better mood in the mornings in the fall! Not to mention drinking coffee when it’s 100 degrees outside is not as fun. Speaking of which…

mmmmmm coffee

Cooler weather. Where did it go? Last week we had mornings in the FORTIES! I was ecstatic. Now? The high today is 82. Yeah. Isn’t it almost November? Speaking of almost November, that means it’s almost Halloween…

Halloween Candy. Bane of my existence. After 10/31, I am making the hubby hide it from me. Seriously, if he doesn’t, I will eat all the things. This is not good. I am trying to eat healthy and BE more healthy especially since I have been sick. Speaking of which…

Mickey pumpkin = Halloween

Antibiotics. I haven’t taken any in YEARS. I am still on my round of Amoxicillin, which thankfully is in pill form. Does anyone remember taking the liquid as a kid? I do, and that stuff was gross. Tasting the pill a little brings back bad memories so I have to swallow quickly. However, I am SO glad I am feeling better, because I have a ton to do since getting back in town, like cleaning my house. Speaking of which…

Taking lots of this, too.

House cleaning. It was mostly clean when I got home yesterday, so what the heck happened? It’s amazing how quickly we can trash things, it has literally only been 24 hours. How does this happen? I think I need to do some spring cleaning this fall so I don’t have as much stuff to clutter up.

I don’t have a picture to go with house cleaning, so how ‘bout one of Bella instead, hhmmm?

QOTD: Thoughts on any of these things? Are you ready for the candy to be gone and do you wish little elves came in and cleaned your house at night so you can drink pumpkin spice coffee in the mornings?
