We kicked off our Halloween weekend of fun last night. I'm not sure why, but I'm extra excited about Halloween this year...not sure if it's because my son is SO into it, or maybe my Christmas crazy is spreading to other holidays?
Last night we met up with my sister and her family to Trick or Treat in their town, and it was so fun! I decided to dress up a little bit this year, and I'm so glad I did! I will be dressing up every year from now on until my son is old enough to think it's embarassing. :) My husband was a good sport and wore a mullet wig that we had in our Halloween tub. He looked very handsome.
The boys were Spiderman, Batman, and a different Batman.
I found spiderweb earrings at Wal-Mart, and a scarf with skulls on it (found on Amazon). I also gave red lipstick a try which isn't my thing for everyday, but was fun to try out.
We had a good time Trick or Treating and the kids got plenty of candy. But...my son was supposed to spend the night with my sister, and he was so bent out of shape about wanting to go back home with me that he couldn't concentrate on Trick or Treating! Like cried real tears and whined almost the entire time instead of just having fun. It makes no sense because my sister is a big part of his life and he loves playing with his cousins...not to mention he has stayed there before. When I asked him if he wanted to stay earlier in the week he was so excited but then was suddenly so upset about wanting to go home with me, Lately he has even been freaking out about not wanting to stay the night at Grandma's house, where he has stayed at least weekly since birth almost. He just wants to be home I think...I guess it's just an age thing? At any rate, he ended up going back home with us. That feeling of being homesick is the absolute worst and unless it is completely necessary for some reason, I'm not going to force it.
So for the challenge part - my friend/coworked and I really want to get our fitness back on track, so we have challenged each other for the month of November. Whoever works out more times from November 1-20th is the winner...and the loser has to buy the winner Chipotle for lunch on Friday, November 21st (the Friday before Thanksgiving). A workout consists of anything a half hour or more - so a half hour walk, a half hour of lifting weights, a workout DVD, etc. I think it's a fun way to hold ourselves accountable and have a little motivation. I am also starting a Zumba class tomorrow at my gym, so it just seems like good timing all the way around.
Aside from that, I am just excited to get back on track and feel good again. I really want to give November my all, and report back here how much progress can be made in 3 weeks time after this challenge. I am so looking forward to our fun Halloween plans tonight, but even more than that, just getting started getting my fitness back on track.
I hope you all have a safe, happy Halloween!!
