Happy Friday! We made it! Anyone else feel like this was a really long week? Maybe it’s because I’m SO excited for Halloween?!
Today, I spent the day prepping for our first Halloween in our new house with a bajillion (totally legit) Trick-or-Treaters. Seriously, I was told to have like 15 bags of candy. I hope I don’t run out!
We’re going to setup a Trick-or-Treat tailgate in the front yard, complete with decorations, drinks, and of course candy! Word on the
neighborhood street is that everyone sets up outside like this, so we’re going all out. I got the good candy to hand out, but hid it so I’m not tempted. But I know where it is so that’s not working…. 😈 Just gotta make it ’til tomorrow!
I’m also planning a full Halloween spread of yummy and spooky treats for all of us to snack on. My parents and in laws will be joining us, so it’s a party!
Going to make a spooky cake, kind of inspired by this one.
I always make a baked brie for Thanksgiving, but I’m bumping it up for all hallows eve and am dressing it up for the occasion, inspiration here.
These ideas really gross me out, but so fitting for a creepy themed night!
My madre is whipping up her amazing muffuletta sandwiches, but with a sneaky twist!
I’m still looking for a spooky cocktail, but am going to make candy corn jello shots! We have an old family jello shot recipe passed down for generations…
We’re also picking up tacos from our local taco stand, because tacos.
Thank you Pinterest for the best inspiration out there! What are your Halloween plans??
Last night I ran an impromptu Halloween 5k right in my backyard with oh so many hills! I found out super last minute that there was a small 5k about a minute away in my small town, so I had to go out and do it! Costumes were optional, but I’m not a fan of running in full costume, so I donned my fave witches muscle tank and a cute themed bandana for the evening.
The race was super small, but had a gorgeous course through orange groves and like a zillion hills. Another super accurate measurement! 😝 I haven’t done much hill training yet, so these steep inclines were welcome. It slowed my time down a bit, but I really pushed through and raced this 5k.
Sometimes last minute races are the best, since you can’t overthink it and there’s less pressure.
What are your weekend plans? Any parties out there? What are you dressing up as?! I can’t wait to share photos with you all after tomorrow! 🙂
Share with me, I love to know! 👻
