Happy Halloween! It’s rainy and drizzly here, which I think is keeping some kids from coming out, although they are drifting in as I type this.
I did the mummy pumpkin on Wednesday night. I really do like carving 😀
I did a more subtle version of candy corn with my nails doing a watercolor technique. I really like how this looks. Excuse my cuticles. They are a bit of a mess.
I actually just removed this polish today since it got chipped with my guitar playing, but it lasted since Saturday. I’ll definitely be doing this again with other colors.
So anyway, here were the goals I set for myself for October and how I did:
- Try at least one new recipe a week. I actually did a few new recipes. Some not as healthy as others. A couple that I posted on the blog were grilled coconut chicken and the crockpot jambalaya. I also did the pumpkin crunch cake, a dip and I made some pumpkin muffins from Ellie Krieger.
- Make a list of all the things to do around the house and actually do some of them. The list is made. Not a lot crossed off of it, but at least the list is there. We have both chipped away at it.
- Curb snacking. I really struggled with this one. Work stress got pretty bad there for a while and I responded poorly to it.
- The return of the Pink Picture! Done and done!
The snacking was the goal that kind of irritated me. Like I said before, I am not an emotional eater except for stress. And it doesn’t have to be junk food, either. You can overeat nuts or nut butter or pretzels or even dried cranberries. I had put the kibosh on candy corn for a couple weeks just because I knew that I was stressed and I would have eaten all of it had it been in the house earlier in the month, so at least there was that.
Now to come up with November goals! There is one I am pulling John into doing 😀
Last pink picture of the month. This is the pink that does all the photos!
