Happy Halloweeeeeeeen! I know for some this Halloween isn’t about costumes and candy, instead they are focusing on staying warm, staying fed and surveying damage. In fact, Governor Chris Christie has suggested moving Halloween festivities in New Jersey to Saturday, as many small communities already have. My thoughts are with all of you that are affected by Hurricane Sandy <3
Breakfast yesterday was at one of my new favorite spots: La Patisserie. I ask them to add every veggie they have to their veggie omelet and it turns out to be quite the breakfast beast. Sub fruit for toast, but keep those breakfast potatoes- they’re scary good!
We spent the morning running around. I needed new tires (four of ‘em- argh) and we voted early! The line was over an hour long and I was told it has been that way everyday, so I can only imagine how insane election day will be!
Lunch was veggie-packed.
Leftover kale salad and homemade vegetable soup.
Late in the day I grabbed a hummus and carrot snack before heading to the gym.
I can’t bring myself to buy baby carrots. Though easier, they simply lack flavor. Regular carrots are the way to go!
I refueled with a Magic Hat #9 while I proceeded to over-roast the broccoli.
Dinner was a simple grilled chicken breast on a wheat bun with buffalo ranch for dipping. Charred broccoli on the side. Nothing like fancy burnt broccoli to show off for WIAW!
I downed it before going to meet up with my friend, Alison. We’re throwing our neighborhood Halloween party today!
She’s a former teacher and is clearly great at it. I just follow her directions. I’m excited about all the crafts for kids! After all, I just finished my own crafts. I hot-glued…
I made a tutu (all by myself- wheee!)…
and I got Hailey to wear it! So they question is…
What is she?
A butterfly? A bug?
She’s a Hai-lien! A what?
When we named her, Hailey Ann, David couldn’t help but notice when you say it fast, it sounds like alien, a Hai-lien.
Clearly she could be almost anything with this outfit, but I tried to pick “alien” colors, and heck, she kept the antennas in her hair!
I’m not very crafty, but had fun making this. Hailey knew it was filled with love. High-five on the effort, mom!
Cutest little Hai-lien I’ve ever seen.
What are you or your little one going to be for Halloween?
