Friday afternoon, we had a pretty leisurely basketball practice. After all, the girls had their first game on Saturday, so coach wanted them to be nice and rested.
I came home to a kitchen full of helpers getting ready for the big Halloween party to be held on Saturday night by my sister & cousin along with their friends.
They made all sorts of goodies for the party and pretty much went all out.
Momma Freckled Foodie even dyed the Mac & Cheese green so it looked like it was moldy.
The cut out bats & pumpkins from the loaf of bread for the spinach dip! Too cute. I was hangry when I got home and immediately upon smelling all the cooked foods went into a salad making frenzy.
Spinach, alfalfa sprouts, tomato, cucumber, avocado, orange pepper, and fat-free Vidalia onion dressing. And a vitatop to round out my meal. Later on, I also took a dive into the sugar-free fat-free vanilla ice cream container waning in the freezer.
In the morning, I ate a naner and a vita, did insane abs, biking, & ellipticalling until it was time to shower and get ready to go support my girls in their first basketball game!
Before I left, I wolfed down this monstrous salad. It had a new addition, though!
Crum Creek Soy Bites in “Everything” . Just like an everything bagel made into croutons! ❤ LOVE them.
The girls kicked BUTT at the game. It sucks that I won’t be able to play until Spring, but I was glad I went anyway.
Final score!! They annihalated the Philly team! I was so proud of them.
After the game, I took advantage of the fact that I was in the Harrisburg area, and went sneaker shopping.
Not bad for under $50! 🙂 I think they’re cute.
I painted my nails and got ready for the party. Guess which color I chose.
If you guessed the one on the left, you’d be correct.
My costume was quick and easy. 🙂
I decided a runner would be suitable. I actually RAN to the party. LOL. It was only out the street from our house in a barn. You can’t see it in the picture, but I did have a medal on that I won in a 5K last year. It was under the jacket. I also put on a nike ear warmer headband.
Before I left, I threw together a sampler platter for dinner.
Veggie Patch meatless meatballs with Garlic Lovers Cedar’s Hummus, Tzatzki Cucumber Garlic dip, tomato slices, baby carrots, cucumbers, and sprouts all with two slices of Low Carb Julian Bakery bread.
A lot of costumes at the party were super cute, but here were some of my faves. Keep in mind, this was a FAMILY & friends party. Clean cut, of course 😉
MARIO & LUIGI!
FATHER & DAUGHTER
(NURSE & REFEREE)
A CUTE LITTLE HUNTER!
The kids bobbed for apples, took a hay ride, danced, hung out by the fire, and played a few other games…like this one! They had to see who could eat the donut off the string fastest without using their hands.
It was so funny to watch, because they were swaying back and forth trying to reach them. Then you had the smart alecks that decided to cheat 😉 Haha.
The bonfire was my favorite. I ran home, consumed a large bowl of steamed vegetables with light ragu after ward + a big, juicy apple, and went to bed.
