Our Weekend + A Receipe

Our weekend was a mix of highs and lows.  We started out Halloween morning with a BOO breakfast of chocolate chip pumpkin pancakes, eggs, and OJ. Later that day London’s little school had a Halloween party and a trunk or treat which was so much fun but of course the weather didn’t cooperate and it was freezing. Saturday we had evening plans to attend a dinner party for a girlfriends birthday. This was the low part of the weekend when I apparently left my phone on the top of my car, backed out, and ran over it a few times. After a minor heart attack because I thought I had lost all my photos I was able to capture everything except the Halloween pictures of London.So, I don’t have any photos of Halloween except the two I sent my mom, which makes me so sad. It frustrates me that I depend on my phone so much to capture moments. I will say though it was really nice not having a phone for about 24 hours.  I didn’t have to check email, answer texts or look at Instagram. I am way too addicted to my phone and this definitely made me realize it however you better believe I was at the Apple store first thing yesterday getting a new one.  Here’s to hoping I’ve learned a big lesson and that Monday goes better.
