Alright, so my version of a party now ends by 11 PM – but here’s an advantage of ‘grown-up parties:’ cleaning consists of rearranging the furniture and tossing empty cups and plates into the trash… not steaming the rug or scrubbing out the bathtub (that’s where you keep the keg, silly).


Grown-up attributes aside, we hosted a very fun Labor Day party last night.  Lots of people stopped by and everyone had a good time – we even played corn hole in the hallway.  I never realized our long hallway was the perfect corn hole length until last night. Winking smile




We had some friends stay over last night, so when I made this for-two batch of pancakes (from a box, Bob Red Mill), I thought, “Whoever gets up next gets the other half of the batch.”  Our friend Brandon won the lucky prize.


With almonds, raspberries, and syrup.


My goal for today: RUN.  I think it’s now or never so I better jet.

    Wow, 11 pm. That is super late. My version ends no later than 10! 🙂 Isn’t it fun to be an adult?

    Oh my god. Please send some of your motivation my way. I’m laying on the couch as we speak and I don’t want to move!

    My college apt had a long hallway where we would play indoor bags. Loud “thuds” for the neighbors.

    Cornhole means its football season!

    I need a run too and my attempt to wake up early was unsuccessful. I’m wondering if I can push the run to tomorrow and do something else today instead…I’m still debating. HA!

    What comes before part “b”? NAILED IT!

    My friends and I haven’t transitioned to the whole adult party thing yet… A few weekends ago after a party at our house there was copious amounts of trash, a broken door, and the entire living room smell of vom. Not cool.
