Date Nights - November 2017

As winter approached, we spent more time inside continuing to organize the apartment and catching up on various TV shows on the DVR. We were starting to find our groove and really enjoying our weekends at home.

I found a Books & Brews event through Friends of the Worthington Libraries that was a perfect date night for us. We had a great night and even made some friends at the event. We sat next to a couple that moved to Columbus from New York several years ago and had really made a home here. We teamed up with them for the trivia contest. It really is a small world...

Chris found another fun sporting event for us to attend - New York Rangers vs Columbus Blue Jackets. I think we've only been to one other hockey game together. I'm a little foggy on all the rules so it was nice to get a refresher on those. We had fun even though it was quite cold in the arena!

What type of community fundraisers or sporting events do you enjoy most?

Photo A Day - November 2017

There sure was a lot to be thankful for this month. The weather stayed nice which was great since we were training for two different races.

It rained on and off the whole time for our Hot Chocolate 15k, but the treat at the end made it all worth it. Seriously - so tasty! I started a round of 21 Day Fix, voted, and we saw our second show as Broadway season ticket holders in Columbus. Waitress was fantastic!

I took a solo trip to Lexington to play with the kiddos and visit Mom and Dad while they were babysitting. We went to a dance at Brinley's school, had a basketball game at the Y, and went to church at Southland. I stuck to my workout schedule and continued to focus on eating healthy. I highly recommend listening to (or reading) Born a Crime - phenomenal.

Chris and I checked out the Columbus Blue Jackets when the Rangers were in town. I finally hung all my race medals - so many memories! The Youth in Government event had me at the capitol building for a few days before we celebrated Thanksgiving. Chris and I made our own turkey dinner. It had its challenges, but everything turned out great!

We ran the Hungry Turkey 5k complete mega cinnamon rolls at the finish. My cousin, Kenneth, surprised me with a completely unexpected visit. It was awesome to see him after SO many years! I continued to stay on track with my meal plan and drinking lots and lots of water.
