The first cool front finally made its way down to the coast and the evening and morning temperatures are making me frisky!

We get up very early here.  After letting the dogs out, feeding them and making coffee I have been sitting outside with the fire pit and sipping my hot coffee prior to waking the kids.  Bliss.


I unboxed all the Halloween decorations and put them up on the 29th.  Well, I had been sneaking them out for about a week, but whatever.


We had a busy weekend coming up, so we had our Fall dinner and scary movie night that evening.

Mia was wanting to watch something scary this year, so I got Interview with a Vampire.   I remember it being scary and kind of bloody, but no sex etc. I made some sticky BBQ ribs and “bat” wings for dinner.

For desert we had bloody red velvet cake ice cream on chocolate waffle cones.  LOL  Skye WANTED!


We then got pillows, blankets and curled up on the big couch for the movie.

We made it about 20 minutes in and decided that it has not survived the test of time.  Super awful and awesome dumb violence.


We voted and popped in the Ghose and Mr. Chicken and all was right with the world again.  Don Knots has indeed survived the test of time.

Very cozy, fun evening for all of us.

The next morning I got up and ran with temps in the low 60’s.  CAN I HAVE AN AMEN!!  OMG that felt so good.  I have been slogging through my runs in absolute sweltering conditions here at the coast.  Humidity in the 80’s with temps soaring well into the 90’s.  Coastal running is tough due to the humidity and is a true test to ones endurance.  If you want to know if you are in shape, come here and bang out a midday run of say, 5 miles.  Sufferfest.  I rewarded myself with a fall smoothie. Pumpkin, banana, almond milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, and 4 dates.  Yum.


I will leave you with a little vintage andbabymakes6 fun. This is Mia, age 6.  Billy had just removed some stitches she had in her chin.  He brought home gloves for her to play with. LOL
