Big Things are Happening

Just kidding.

I just wanted your attention.

I’m needy like that.

Fun things are happening though!

Saturday I went to the Adorn Fashion Show. 


My sister, Autumn, and I went.  We went last year with my Mom and she was supposed to go this year but got sick.


It was fun and we had a good brunch.  Only, I was three bites into my red velvet cake dessert before I remembered I wasn’t eating sugar! doh!  I pushed it away.  Talk about mindless eating!

Monday and Tuesday I have been volunteering as a LUNCH LADY!  I don’t have the pictures to prove it, but it happened!

One of my friends has her daughter at a small private school where the lunch room duties are all volunteer.  I laughed at her so hard when she told me she was the head lunch lady and then told her I would help her out whenever she needed.  So Monday, yesterday and the next two Tuesdays, I will be reporting for lunch lady duty!  It’s pretty fun and HyVee caters the food each day.  Those kids are getting some pretty delicious food!

I am back to light exercise.

That is probably the BEST news I have for this week! 


I am doing my spin bike for 20 minutes each day.  It’s the only form of cardio that doesn’t irritate my knee.  Yesterday I incorporated one round of tabata using an app on my iphone.


Man, tabata is legit.  I was pedaling away for 15 minutes and needed something to really get the sweat moving and lungs working. See that sweat dripping off my nose?  And that smile?  (My Mom probably wants to spank me for how crooked my teeth are getting. She paid a lot of money for those teeth.) 4 minutes is all it took!  4 MINUTES, PEOPLE!

I was feeling so good after that I headed straight into our weight room. I only had 15 minutes, so I did a quick upper body.


In other news about yesterday

I got the Fall spirit.



Fall candles.  Well, I went to Yankee Candle with a coupon for buy two large jars, get two free and had every intention of buying Fall candles, but left there with Whoopie Pie, Hazelnut Coffee and Banana Bread!  At least Be Thankful is in the Fall category!

Then I made butternut squash soup.  I have to pat myself on the back or give myself a hug, because this soup is AMAZING!  I could have eaten the whole pot!  Luckily, I didn’t and can’t wait to have some today! (maybe for breakfast)

Our pumpkin spice coffee for the Keurig also came yesterday!

We are in deep over here, Folks.

Hope everyone is having a great start to the Fall season!
