Another Friday. Already. Where do the days go?! Oh right, I run around after the girls all day 😉
A morning library trip, some play time there for Avery then home for the afternoon and we baked squash brownies and muffins. I am not good at being at home for more than a few hours but am slowly working on having slower days.
Yoga in the morning for Miss.Avery and I started on some work things. I decided to use the hour to prep for my return to work in January and get my brain back into work mode. After we ordered A’s birthday cupcakes.
My Mom came over during naps and Avery heard her so did not nap. I do not deal well with no nap days and neither does Avery. Our afternoon was spent checking out Once Upon A Child then watching the Shrek Halloween movie and hanging out at home.
I thought I was ready for fall but these days I really miss spending our days outside, going for walks and to the beach! I need to suck up the cooler weather and get out more!
We ran a few errands in the morning, booked eye appointments for the whole family and wore Halloween gear – I got suckered into shirts for the girls this year.
During nap time I decided to start the playroom re-do and then got caught up re-doing a small rocking chair and chalk table for the playroom. Oh and I added 100 more DIYs to my list…
We spent some time in the yard since the sun was out after naps, I snapped some photos of this girls:
Once Chloe went down for her 4pm nap I got ready for my work gala. Felt good to dress up, do my hair and makeup for a change!
I left the house for the evening and did not get home until 10:30pm. It was a great evening and made me realize how much I miss my work. I keep telling myself in 6 months I will wish I was home some days so just be happy for now.
Pictures from the evening:
I decided to take the girls for an afternoon run which meant an open morning! We met my Grandma for coffee and a visit:
After naps the sun was out so we went out for a quick 6km run. Avery told me a few days ago she wanted to be a runner like me since it makes her strong. I was happy to hear that and know all those hours she was spent watching me run and running with me have been worth something 🙂
The last bit of our run I let her run with me:
We also made a park pit stop”
