last week flew by, i am sure that this one will be the same. i am starting to feel healthy again after fighting the flu last week. my energy level is still with the flu and hasn't come back to me yet. even without any energy, there is a lot going on around here. work is crazy. life at home is busy. this next weekend is the big party for our mom so a lot of time has been put in to planning and prepping. i am really looking forward to getting a chance to celebrate her 70 years with family and friends.

in between all of the planning, a few highlights from the last week...
+++ loving stepping out of my car to find my feet in a pile of fall leaves.
+++ long training run for the 5k, and when i was walking a bit after my run i stopped to take in the blue sky above as well as the red leaves below.

+++ making candy corn garland and candy corn decorated cupcakes for our friend sasha who loves candy corn more than any other person in the entire universe. seriously.

+++ sleeping in. awesome.
+++ crafting up favors for mom's party. thanks kadeena - you rock.
+++ saw this quote over the weekend and loved it..."we are all just walking each other home." (ram dass)
+++ feeling very inspired by my friend jill's painting (which rocks) that she was working on friday when she took time for herself to paint (yay!!) - loved the words she included on it
"to live in this world you must be able to do three things-to love what is mortal; to hold it against your bones knowing your own life depends on it; and when the time comes to let it go, let it go". (mary oliver )
+++ thinking these granola bars look really good and really easy to make - i would do mine without coconut as i have absolutely no clue why anyone (and i mean anyone) likes coconut (hooch, thanks for the tip about the site - yum!)
+++ i can't stop thinking (drooling) about caramel apples since i read this post.
+++ for all of your instagram peeps, you might be interested in this
+++ these ruby slipper cupcakes are pretty cute
+++ if you are looking for a project for little munchkins, you can get info on free downloadable halloween paper dolls here
+++ i am liking this quote right now for many different reasons
happy monday peeps.
