Fast Friday

Happy Friday everyone! I'm so ready for a weekend even though we had a fun/weird week.  Here are a few things that happened this week.

Saturday night was date night for us. We got to go see the comedian Ryan Hamilton live. We first heard about Ryan because our Idaho family is from the same town as he is.  They showed us some of his stuff and we loved how funny he is, and he's clean!  It was a great date night.

On Sunday as I was getting ready for church, I put this sweater on that I've been wearing for a couple of weeks now.  As I pulled it on I saw the tag said "kid's duster" and I realized I've been wearing a child's sized sweater around and that's why the sleeves were a little tighter than normal. That's how small I am guys, I can fit into a sweater that fits my 7-year-old. The sweater is just a little tighter in the arms, and it's shorter on me (like a normal sweater and not a long one).  I wasn't sure how to feel about this or if I should just keep wearing it or give it to J. Also, please ignore the mess. Sunday mornings are not as restful and smooth as we wish they were :).

We drove up Tuesday night to Idaho to attend Trevon's grandma's funeral.  We didn't get to spend a lot of time with family since the funeral was in the middle of the week, but we enjoyed the time with family that we got. 

Grandma Betty welcomed me to the family instantly and treated me like her own the day she met me.  She was always a great conversationalist and had a great sense of humor. 

We will miss her but we know she's happy now with Grandpa (who I never got to meet, but will someday). She died two days before her 88th birthday so she got to spend her birthday with him. 

Dealing with death has never been easy for me (I don't think it's very easy for many people) but it's even a little harder now thanks to anxiety. Death is a trigger for me and what started my anxiety problems in the first place when my Grandma Ann died. We drove home Wednesday night, and though we wished he had more time with the family, I was very happy to be in my own bed and get a good nights rest! 

While we were in Idaho, we stayed at an Airbnb for the first time and it was fun! We stayed with Trevon's dad and brothers and their families.  We watched What About Bob? as a family, which is something I've wanted to do for a long time because it's my favorite comedy and our Idaho family hadn't seen it! And when we walked into the kitchen I had to stop because I remembered that I had a dream about that kitchen with Trevon's family months ago! Does anyone else have that happen?

Thursday was supposed to be our catch up day but I slacked off and V and I went Halloween costume shopping instead. We scored a great deal on J's costume but didn't find anything for the other costumes yet. V was pretty interested in this mask, but he was terrified of the scary horse and talked about it the whole way home from the store haha, poor kid. 

I made sure to get some strength training in, but not much else this week. I did get the ok to try run/walk to start out with! I'll be doing that soon and fingers crossed I'll feel good while I'm running!

I hope you all have a great weekend! 

What are your weekend plans?

Do you dress up for Halloween? 

Ever dream about things and then have them happen?
