Weekend Recap + Happy Halloween!


What a whirlwind weekend!  It was a good one, that went by in the blink of an eye.  A lot of fun was had and I'm sad to see it over so quickly.  Some highlights include ::


  • Paranormal Activity 3 - I know you're probably all tired of hearing me talk about seeing this movie, but I must say it was pretty amazing.  Not only was it terrifying, but it had humorous parts that are making me laugh still.  
  • Pizza!
  • It was a Z-bar kind of night, full of birthday celebrations (happy birthday again, Ann), a John Lennon cover band, a Velvet Underground cover band, and all of our Louisville friends in the same place with 2 Chicago friends to boot.  'Twas good times, my friends.  Good.  Times.
  • On Saturday morning we had visitors, two of which were little and adorable.  It was nice to meet you, Maggie's family!
  • We managed to fill the bed of our S-10 up entirely with firewood from a man in our neighborhood.  We immediately went home and stacked it up nicely for aesthetics reasons, of course.  And later on that night we had totally had a delightful fire.
  • We finally bottled our homemade brew.  Fingers crossed...
  • Mexican Chili Pie - mmm
  • Apples to Apples - it was epic and hilarious.
  • Family birthday dinner + ice cream cake + Balderdash.  Certainly a lovely ending to a lovely weekend.

The weather was beautifully sunny and warm for a late October weekend.  My favorite :)

How were your weekends? Wonderful, I hope!  Here's to a great week ahead!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

I'm such a chicken I'm too scared to see Paranormal Activity...but I would like to take on that mummified pumpkin. It's brilliant!

Ha! We had wick's this weekend, too! It's awesome stuff. And Apples to Apples is the best game. My family plays for hours when we all get together and my grandmother is usually the most competitive of us all--it's great fun.

Oooh wish we had a fireplace in our apartment! I'm hoping to see Paranormal Activity 3 sometime this week - glad to hear it was great!

Um, I love that photo you chose! I have pumpkins at home, but have not been able to carve them. I feel like just carving them and throwing them away a few days later is such a waste. Love this idea of wrapping it in gauze for decoration, but you still can use the pumpkin for good later. :)

And also, you are way braver than I for watching that movie. I can't watch stuff like that--nightmares for weeks.

A stock of wood for the winter, scary movies and your first homebrew? What a fantastic weekend! What did you guys decide to make?

Sounds like a beautiful weekend! Mexican chili pie and fun family birthdays!

Happy Halloween :)
