I’m combining Friday and Saturday, I knew I would have some time at some point to sit down and write today, so I didn’t push myself last night. I piled into bed with my family and Braylen told us funny stories. Those times are good for the soul.
Yesterday was a typical Friday, we did make apple sauce at school and my students loved it, and my room smelled amazing all day. The smell of cinnamon and apples made me long for cooler fall temperatures. They’re coming right, Alabama?
I quickly changed for dinner after I came home. We headed out to Debbie’s birthday dinner at Mizu and I had been looking forward to hibachi all day long. This pregnant lady is hungry, especially since the sickness has ceased, or so it seems that way this week. I tried to get BK to take a picture, but she said, nah, I don’t feel like taking a mirror picture, maybe tomorrow.
Thankfully, BK loves hibachi just as much as her daddy and I do. She helped the birthday girl blow out her candle and ate her weight in fried rice.
I started this Saturday morning with a trip to Pure Barre. And can I just say the new warm up kicked my tail? Any of you know what I’m talking about? That series of push-ups, and the plank, and all that triceps work.
We ate breakfast with our neighbors (and their adorable baby niece who is town for the weekend), and then BK and I had to go get ready for the zoo.
Allen had other plans tonight, and Brooke and I had decided earlier in the week to take the girls to the zoo. I was possibly over ambitious when we decided to hit the zoo after lunch, grab dinner, then head back to Boo at the Zoo that evening. Call me crazy, but that’s exactly what we set out do this around lunch today. We met up with them at Chick-fil-a (hooray!) and then started on our adventure.
And Brooke also had her two nephews. So the two of us with four children. Whoa. To say I’m tired would be a bit of an understatement. We saw every single animal at the zoo, and when it closed at 4:00 we headed to Davenport’s to have a slice of the best pizza in the world.
About an hour and a quick costume change later we were ready for the nighttime festivities. BK loves pretending that she is super girl and when I spotted this costume in the Pottery Barn Kids catalog, I knew it was the one. I have dreams of red boots when it gets cooler, but we stuck to Sun Sans this evening. Looks like she’ll get tons of wear out of this costume throughout the month.
We rode the train, trick or treated, watched a show, danced a little, met a few Superheroes, rode the carousel, and took a hayride before I called it a night. It was the carousel that she loved the most. It is always the carousel. Always.
I think she’ll sleep great tonight. And I have a feeling I will too. I’m off to catch the last of the Auburn game with Allen and call it a night.
Hope y’all had a Happy Saturday, too.
