TWTW - oh look, it turned November

1. Doling out candy like it was our job. We stay outside in the driveway with the neighbors because the dogs go nuts.
2. MFD also carves our pumpkin outside. And dresses up like Ralphie in A Christmas Story.
3. When trick or treaters dried up, MFD roasted pumpkin seeds and I did some hausfrauing, including washing both couches. I freaking love having washable couches.
4. Dad's birthday lunch at Brother's. My dad is the best dad. Go ahead, click on those links.
5. Errands - I went to the mall, where I haven't been in forever. There was a really cute store with a lot of signs and shit bloggers love. The Grumpy Cat book made me laugh out loud. I also saw a man pee his pants there. Please dear Lord don't let that ever be me. To round out the day, I went grocery shopping. In the rain! My favorite. MFD has moved Darren Daulton's location so when I pull into my driveway this is now what I see.
6. Weekly food prep: ham/cheese/spinach egg muffins for breakfasts, bananas/apples/peppers/greek yogurt for snacks, caesar chicken from the freezer over mixed greens for lunches, chicken and cheese enchiladas with mexican rice and mixed greens/baked salmon with steamed cauliflower and rice for dinners. Recipe to follow for the chicken enchiladas w/ enchilada sauce from scratch.
7. Painting my nails was a hot mess this week. Luckily nail polish washes off in the shower. The purple is Julep Margarita and the greeny glitter is Julep Tazeen.
8. Ladies who lunch Sunday at my house. Melissa and Alex were supposed to come over so it would've been ladies and gentlemen who lunch, but he was sick.
9. I had better lunch food photos, but I accidentally deleted them all. So this is what you get. I made vegetable beef barley soup, homemade bread, spinach and artichoke dip, and mini apple pies. Recipe for those from Carly Blogs Here. Debbie brought a corn/black bean/feta dip and Jenn brought pizza dip. It was all delicious!
10. I started this challenge on Instagram. Join in! When you post your daily pics, use the hashtag #bloggersgetsocial. Thanks to Rachel from Can't Google Everything for introducing me to this!

On Mondays I'm doing a picture linkup called Picture Practice with Kelli at Just Beachy. If you'd like to participate, here are the prompts through December. Share on your blog, or if you don't blog on Twitter or Instagram every Monday with the hashtag #PicturePractice. This is my photo for the prompt Halloween. I shared it on FB and Instagram, but I find it hilarious and really very us. I love having a husband who loves to make people laugh.
So basically, I'm married to Ralphie.
Did you catch my post on Saturday with my November Choose Your Own Adventure Goals for the theme of organization? More importantly, did you enter the giveaway for a Muji acrylic organizer and $25 to your local food bank? What are you waiting for?!

And now it's November. And the sun sets at 4:57 p.m. Commence many months of me bitching about lack of light.

  5. Your food prep always impresses me! I would love to make meals on Sundays and either freeze them or refrigerate them and just "bake them" as needed--but as stupid as this sounds, I don't really know how to do that! I cracked up at the nail polish mess. WHY DOES THAT HAPPEN SOMETIMES! Things people never tell you haha! Loving the color combo though!

  6. Seriously LOVE MFD's Ralphie! He looks like a pink nightmare!
    Seriously this time change though! I was at work last night and was sure it was like 9PM...NOPE it wasn't even 7 yet.
    And those enchiladas look delicious!

  7. Mike Doyle looks like an adult Ralphie, glasses and all! Losing control of bowels and/or bladder will send me to an assisted suicide state. God help that man. And Pop saw the lady peeing her pants in the food court at OVM. Good God, there are bathrooms in the mall. God help them all! Lunch looks delicious.
    Happy for a sunny day and the extra hour of sleep/life, but rue the darkness.
    Have a happy day. Love, Your Momma

  11. MFD in that costume is just priceless. I love him. We had zero time this year to get pumpkins or carve them, I'm sad! I love roasting pumpkin seeds, I always make a bunch of flavors. Delicious.

  12. I always knew your husband looked like someone... it's Ralphie! Do those little egg & cheese things reheat pretty well? Happy November -- I'm ready to get organizing!

  14. MFD's costume is hilarious!

    The mall sounds good, I'm thinking of checking the big mall out that's about an hour away next weekend. I really need to get my Christmas shopping started.

  15. The ladies lunch sounds like fun with some great dishes and apps! The Ralphie costume is hilarious! It looks like he plays the role well! Always good to be married to someone that makes you laugh.

  16. I love that it was a store with things bloggers love. I think that about a lot of things, too, lately. MFD is hilarious. I hope some of the kids knew what he was but if not, who doesn't love a grown man dressed as a pink rabbit?

    ReplyDelete
  17. I love the picture of the pugs at your window - HYSTERICAL!

    And he dresses up as Ralphie every year? Also - HYSTERICAL!

    Hey - the muffin tin - where did you score that?

    ReplyDelete
  18. I LOVE Ralphie! My all time favorite Christmas movie and seriously he could be his twin!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Pizza dip?! Umm, yes please! Can't wait to see your recipe for the enchiladas. We always use this boxed thing with sauce and powder for the chicken, but I'd love to try something homemade. Also, your Halloween looks awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Love the pink rabbit and that you have to sit outside to handout candy. We might have considered that this year but were away at a friend's house. I also saw someone put a baby gate outside their main door so that when they opened the door, dogs could stay put. Your food pics look delicious, especially that mini pie.

  21. Absolutely cracking up over the Ralphie costume. LOVE it.

    And I'm loving your glitter nail!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Ahhh! The pink rabbit. Awesome.

  23. MFD as Ralphie is just amazing. I feel like he and Jared would get along so well! ;) Also, it's probably weird how much I love reading your meal prep for the week. I always get a new idea!

    ReplyDelete
  24. MFD looks fabulous - I have never seen that movie (it's a movie, right?) but now I want to. your nails look awesome, mine always look like that (the not awesome part) whenever i paint my nails, sigh. thank goodness it comes off indeed!

    ReplyDelete
  25. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH ralphie omfg that made me laugh so hard. a christmas story is my husband's FAVORITE christmas movie as in he watches it from start to finish every holiday. i love that MFD wears that thing around on halloween!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love that it gets dark early. More excuses not to have to leave the house.

    I just about died when I saw you post that picture on FB. Scott was hysterical, too.

    I'm going to try for the Instagram challenge thing this month. I never do them because I forget. I'm not very good at Instagram.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Do you guys get a ton of trick or treaters? I am hoping I get some next year as we'll be in a three-family instead of an apartment building. I'll be waiting for your enchilada recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Love MFD's costume! I just started an Instagram account so will have to try this challenge. Sounds like fun!

    ReplyDelete
  29. The pic of the 3 dogs in the window is great! They are sad to be missing all the fun going on outside. Oh and your husband's costume is awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  30. How'd your seeds turn out?! I almost wish I would've gotten a pumpkin this year just for that.
    Jealous of your washable furniture. Ours is leather, which you can obviously wipe down, but it's not comfy AT ALL.
    Dude... the nails... *shakes head* bahahahah

    ReplyDelete
  31. We hang out on our porch for trick-or-treaters. Our neighborhood is a hot spot and we'd be opening the door every 30 seconds otherwise. It's fun out there though. So much fun energy and a billion kids. LOL at Darren Daulton! That's awesome! I love your nail color combo. Those mini apple pies look awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  32. FOOD!

    Love the costume.

    And I love Grumpy Cat so much. I have a sign on my car that says, "Grumpy Cat hates your stick figure family."

  33. I am so in love with MFD's Ralphie costume!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I really wanted to make pumpkin seeds this year but in the hustle & bustle of carving pumpkins with 3 other people, including an 8 year old, everything just went straight into the trash.

  35. MFD in the bunny suit. That is all I need this week. Race called.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I LOVE, LOVE his costume!!! It's so great! The picture of the dogs looking out the window is SO cute!

    ReplyDelete
  37. MFD in that bunny suit has me in stitches. That is literally epic!

    ReplyDelete
