Recent Happenings

Holy cow, it's been over a month since I last posted! I knew it had been at least a few weeks, but didn't realize quite how long until I got on blogger tonight to post an update. I guess that shows you how busy October was for us! Let's see, how about a quick summary about what we've been doing?

We successfully completed our healthy eating challenge, with a few corners being cut. It was worth it, too, because I scored in the highest category of healthy stats, which means a higher discount at work! WooHoo!

Vegan pizza with romesco sauce. I didn't even miss the cheese!

My friend Diane and I were excited to finish the Pumpkins in the Park 5k

Our good friends Christie and Nasser got married here in Chicago, at a beautiful location in Old Town. The ceremony was touching, the food amazing, and the party worth talking about! It was a fantastic night, and I'm so happy for the bride and groom as they start their married life together.

We babysat for almost a week straight. Well, mostly I babysat, and Joe worked. He was a huge help when he was around, though, and the two kids think he's basically a walking superhero/rockstar/legend. Our reward?  Blowing the money on a lovely new toy :)

Then we really rewarded ourselves, with an amazing week long vacation in Mexico! We got to catch up with old friends, and help two of them celebrate their wedding. It was relaxing, fun, peaceful, booze-soaked, and everything else you could want from a beach vacation. Perfect.

Since I took a billion pictures at both weddings, I'll post separately for those two occasions!
