“On Nov. 8, we can show our children that here in America, we reject hatred and fear and in difficult times, we don’t discard our highest ideals. No, we rise up to meet them. We rise up to perfect our union. We rise up to defend our blessings of liberty. We rise up to embody the values of equality and opportunity and sacrifice that have always made this country the greatest nation on Earth.
That is who we are. And don’t ever let anyone tell you differently.”
1-4) This week has felt like Cubs week for us, since the Cubs won their first series against the Giants! We watched all 4 games, which meant we didn’t get a lot of sleep this week. Since we’ve been watching at Skinny Slims, we’ve enjoyed walking around to see all the new development in Deep Deuce and Bricktown. Also, Brian asked me to take this photo of him to send to our English friends haha
6-7) Back at Skinny Slims to watch another Cubs game!
8) Whew, the Presidential Debate…yeah. I’ve ignored politics my whole life, but I recently realized that I was only able to ignore it because of my privilege. The system I’m a part of is one that takes care of me, but there are others who are not taken care of and who are not having their voices heard. I feel I need to pay attention and listen and speak up for those whose voices cannot be as loud as mine. All that being said, that debate was ugly. Also, make sure you go vote! Ok, I’m done.
9-10) We watched game 3 at our house, which lasted until 1:45am and we lost :( It was funny watched Brian and Blake play with Bozeman though, their strategy is to face the wall and let Bozeman bark at them in confusion haha
11) We had two of Colin’s friends from work over for dinner on Tuesday. David and Jeremiah are hilarious! They all wanted to take a grumpy photo on the couch since they’ve had a long couple of months working mandatory overtime, I think it turned out well :)
12) After dinner we turned on game 4. We were losing until a really exciting double score that tied the game, and eventually we won! Blake and Brian were at Skinny Slims, and Brian says the game turned around the second he walked in the door, so we’ll be watching the rest of the games there. We’re not superstitious, we’re just a little stitious haha (actually I’m not even “a little stitious”, I just think that quote is hilarious!)
13) Hahaha, I stopped by to see Bethany earlier this week, and her puppy greeted me in a sparkly banana split costume!!! Oh my gosh, I was rolling–so good!
14-15) Guys, I really think Mexican hot chocolate may be my favorite thing ever. Whole Foods had a sale on Taza chocolate including my favorite kind, the Guajillo Chili. So spicy and delicious!
16-17) We had a true chilly Autumn day yesterday, and it was glorious. It’s supposed to get back up to 90 degrees this weekend, so Danielle and I went for a super long walk at Lake Overholser to soak up the cold! Bozeman loved it too, and he slept like a rock for the rest of the day.
This weekend I have family in from out of town, we’re watching two more Cubs games (GO CUBS GO!), and we’re going to the HARRY POTTER STREET FESTIVAL on Sunday!! I hope your weekend is fantastic, friend!
