Well hi there!!
I’ve missed you!
(story of my life lately, right?)
I’m so sorry that I have been MIA once again! Thankfully, recruiting for internships is finally over for all of the accounting firms, so that is one less stress in my life! School hasn’t calmed down much, but that is to be expected. They say that junior year is the “weed out” year for accounting majors. It’s tough!
I know that I am a few days late, but I just wanted to update you guys on what I did over Halloween weekend!
I’ll give you a clue…
I flew out to Chicago last Thursday night to spend the weekend with my adorable boyfriend. It was such an awesome trip! We spent a day at his apartment in Chicago before heading back to his parents house in the suburbs on Friday night.
The weekend was filled with lots of fun and, of course, LOTS of good food!! And of course, the whole weekend basically revolved around pumpkins
We had pumpkin bagels [with pumpkin cream cheese, obvs]
Made a pumpkin chiffon pie
And by we I definitely mean Ryan’s mom. She’s an insanely amazing cook and I always LOVE eating at their house. (This isn’t a picture of the real pie…I was way too busy eating to snap a picture, duh. So this one was found here.)
And we carved pumpkins!!!
Seriously! Look at all of the utensils that bad boy broke!! I literally ended up using a steak knife most of the time haha.
They turned out great!! (Sorry for the fuzzy bathroom picture )
It was a blast!
Obviously, lots of candy was also consumed.
Very few things in life are better than frozen mini snickers bars. SO legit.
Very successful Halloween weekend!
Miss him already!!
I was so glad to hear that some of you have been feeling similar to me lately as far as craving comfort food. Obviously, this weekend wasn’t all about eating healthy or getting awesome workouts in. It was about enjoying my boyfriend and his wonderful family. And I think that’s okay! I have been eating healthy during the week and then if I want to splurge on the weekend (like I did this weekend with Ry) then I can! Especially this time of year, I think it’s silly to try to deprive ourselves of holiday treats. I just end up miserable and bummed out! It’s all about moderation, right?
And the good news is that since my schedule has calmed down a little bit I have had more time and energy to dedicate to great workouts. My parents recently bought a treadmill (!!!) so I have been running more frequently on that since winter has officially started to hit Colorado. I am so stoked to start half-marathon training!
I actually am considering signing up for the Colorado Marathon in May! Any Coloradoans out there that have done it or are doing it in 2012?!
Anyways! Obviously I am VERY far behind on blog reading, so I can’t wait to read about what some of you guys have been up to. Love and miss you LOTS! Happy Wednesday, friends!
Tell me what the best part of your halloween weekend was!!
Did you carve pumpkins this year??
Favorite halloween candy? Anyone else agree with me that frozen candy bars are the jam?!
