I ran 10.79 miles. October was insane and running took a back burner.
I read one book: What She Ate: Six Remarkable Women and the Food That Tells Their Stories. Read mostly while eating. This book was ok, some of the stories were interesting and some dragged on a little.
I listened to 3 audiobooks:
Hungry Heart: Adventures in Life, Love, and Writing by Jennifer Weiner – it’s about her life and read by her. Highly recommended.
The Next Best Thing Also by Jennifer Weiner. I have listened to many of her books, I would say this was middle of the road. A good listen but didn’t wow me.
Crazy Rich Asians (Crazy Rich Asians #1) This book was terrible! There at least 2 more books in the series, I had them on my Goodreads list but promptly removed them after I finished this book. The characters are awful in this book and I felt like every Asian stereotype was brought out in the book.
Travelled to Chicago with Jake, Mom, Dan, Sharon, Lucas, Brooke and Barb (Sharon’s mom). We planned a Chicago weekend so Sharon and I could run a 10K. The night before the race Lucas broke his arm while playing in a Chicago park. He was a trooper and made the most of his Chicago weekend. We also had the chance to visit with our Chicago and Bloomington relatives.
Fun times with Uncle Jake
I also ran my best 10K in the race along the Chicago lakefront.
Official watch time! 6 miles in just over an hour! I will take it!
Jake and I traveled to Cape Girardeau, MO to meet our scholarship recipient and have dinner with some of our College friends. We opted out of the homecoming activities though!
I had a pumpkin Beerita date with my pumpkin loving friend Meagan! It was delicious and it was so great to find some time in our schedules to hang out!
Jake and I went to the symphony. Don’t ask me what was playing but it was beautiful.
Jake and I went to a concert at the Duck Room at Blueberry Hill. We saw Humming House. It was an awesome concert, I highly recommend seeing them if you can.
Jake and I dressed up as Candy Corn for Halloween. Thanks, Reynolds Designs for the awesome shirts! Ignore the ceiling we are in the process of updating the kitchen. This was us after hitting two Halloween parties.
I went to a family wedding in Wentzville, MO. We danced the night away and had a great time!
Taking a break from the fun! So blessed to have these guys in my life!
October was insane! It just seemed like it was one activity after the other. Let’s see what November brings!
