Playing Catch-Up

     Welcome back, November!  Yes, I realize my greeting is about a week late, but in my defense life has been crazy lately.  Although, I believe the definition of life is crazy so let me rephrase:  life has been life. :-)

     As many of you have seen on Facebook, we had a very good Halloween this year.  Our Halloween gathering went off without a hitch, and everyone had fun.  Even if I am a a tad bit late, I'd like to share some of our ghoulish foods and scary decorations.  Let's not forget the awesome costumes!

     Of course, I want to talk about the food first.  Since our guest list was small, we kept the food simple.  Bbq chicken legs that were supposed to be wrapped in bloody gauze (we got sidetracked and forgot at the end), bloody punch, homemade tortilla chips cut into scary shapes, deviled eyeballs, and (my favorite) graveyard cupcakes all made for an interesting array of appetizers.

    Here are a few pictures from that night:

We believe the cause of death to be blunt trauma to the head.
     As with every good Halloween party, we all dressed up.  I loved seeing what each person decided to arrive as, and I myself had an especially fun time in my "Cyndi Lauper" get-up.

Our whole crew. 
Me with my oh-so-scary husband. 
I was getting into character.

      As you can see we had a good bit of fun that night.  And before I move on to more recent events, I have to share a couple of completely adorable pictures of my daughter from Halloween night.

(She was Ariel, just in case you were wondering lol)

    So on to more recent events.  November has brought with it a couple of weekends of relaxation that were not to be found during October.  I'm extremely grateful, because I need the time to get my house back into shape.  Plus, I get extra time just to relax and enjoy having my beautiful baby girl and wonderful husband.  It also provides more time for cooking! (You knew I was going to be throwing that out there soon.)

    Yesterday, for breakfast, I tried a new muffin recipe that turned out rather well.  I found the recipe for these Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins on Pinterest.  I'm being lazy this morning, so you actually have to click the link. :-P 

      Well, it's about time for me to actually get serious about going to work today.  I will make an effort to blog again soon, although I'm not making any promises.  ;-)

  1. Darn it! That's a recipe I might actually have to try... Starbucks has Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins that are to die for - Jaime and I both love them. o_O I've printed the recipe, now to see if I have the ingredients. ^_^

    Also, "Ariel" is just adorable in her costume.
