Happy Halloween Blogger World!!!
Tuesday, October 29, 2013
Even though the weekend has come and gone it doesn't mean I still can't share all the fun things I did.
Friday night, I started my weekend off with some Halloween festivities.... a spooky ghost tour in a cemetery.
However, after the tour we decided it wasn't necessarily a spooky tour; it was more of a history lesson that took place in a cemetery. All-in-all a great time! Well, I had fun.
Saturday was another college football game. Have you ever wondered what two adults look like after standing in the rain for six hours? Folks, please allow me to ease your curiosity..
I'd say this picture was taken at hour four. We're still smiling.
Sunday,I discovered a tasty treat!
Blogger World, saltine crackers and chocolate is delicious!!! I highly recommend everyone try Trisha Yearwood's Sweet and Saltine recipe. It's simply, quick, and delicious.
During Sunday night dinner, The Sisters and I carved a pumpkin for the family contest. I think this one might be a winner.
There you have it...my weekend.

Two weeks ago I challenged myself to only have my beloved Nonfat Chai on Monday mornings. If you remember, I became very alarmed when all my pants were feeling a bit snug!
Blogger World, I'm happy to report that I have completed my two week challenge. I only had my favorite Starbucks drink on Monday mornings.
The purpose of this challenge was to see if it made a difference in the way my clothes fit.
After this challenge, I don't know if I noticed a big difference in my clothes, but I do feel better. The past two weeks, I've substituted my Nonfat Chai for Green Tea. Folks, if you are drinking Green Tea you need to add it to your diet. It's good for you, and it's tasty! I challenge everyone to add a cup of Green Tea to your diet.
Since I rocked this challenge, I decided to set a new two week challenge for myself.
For the next two weeks I am challenging myself to eat 5 servings of fruits and vegetables.

Here in Oklahoma we sometimes do not experience all four seasons for an adequate amount of time. For instance, some years Fall is only two days and Winter is 5-6 months. True Story!
However this year, I believe Oklahoma is going to have a Fall, which makes me very happy. I love Fall, which is why I'm posting my Fall Favorites.
Who doesn't love a good football game? Over the past month I've attended quite a few football games, and I've enjoyed each game!
2. Spiced Pumpkin Muffins
To be honest, I bake these muffins throughout the year. However, they are best in the fall. There's something about cooler temps and pumpkin that I love. Wouldn't you agree?
3. Comfortable Clothes
This is the time of year when it is socially acceptable to run around town in my most comfortable clothes. Also, the cooler temperatures allow it possible to run around town in yoga pants.
4. Cracking a window
It's nice to be able to open all the windows throughout the house. Also, it saves on the electricity bill!
5. Fall Decorations
Personally, I love Fall decorations. I like the use of pumpkins, leaves, branches, and gourds as decorations. The picture above is my front porch. Ok, not true. This is not my front porch. #1 I don't even have a front porch. #2 I live in Oklahoma; there's no way I could have a pillow and blanket on my front porch without blowing away. In two hours it be blown to the next county. But if I did have a front porch and I didn't live in Oklahoma, it would be decorated cute!
There you have it...my Fall Favorites

Blogger World, I'm going to be real with you for a second....
Recently, I've noticed my pants feel a bit tighter. The tightness is in the waist, butt, and thighs. Luckily, my pants still fit in the calves/ankles. Otherwise, this post would be me having a complete meltdown.
At first, I assumed all my jeans had been shrunk in the drier. I mean, that has to be the logical explanation of why everything feels so tight.
Wrong, it's because I like to eat.
Therefore, due to recent events, I have decided to make a slight change to my diet. For the next two weeks I'm going to cut my beloved Nonfat Chai from my diet.
(I'm having a trial period to make sure I do not become a crazy woman)
WAIT... I take that back.
I'm still going to have my beloved Nonfat Chai on Monday mornings, because Mondays are tough. The only thing I have to look forward to on Monday is Bible Study and Castle. I need my Nonfat Chai! But all the other days of the week...no drink!
If anyone else would like to join me in this diet change, please do. I would love a buddy.
Thank you for your time!

If I had an Instagram account I would post these pictures. However, I do not have an Instagram account, which is why I'm posting the pictures on my blog. Enjoy...
A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of having a tea party with Snow White. It was delightful. She made the best tea.
I have crazy friends. For example, sometimes they like to wear glow-in-the-dark headbands.
UCO scored a touchdown off the kickoff. It was a slight miracle so I snapped a picture.
At last night's game UCO handed out these fun things. We were very excited.
Look at all the yummy vegetables I picked from the garden.
