Happy first day of November! Halloween is now over and it’s time to start thinking about Thanksgiving and Christmas. Can you believe it? Before you know it will be 2009! Before I start reaching too far in the future, let’s roll it back and bring it back to last night’s Halloween adventures.
I had so much fun last night at my friend’s Halloween party. It was a very low key party and I really spent the whole time catching up, but it was still great. I am a big fan of low key parties. No one got trashed and no one was dressed slutty, a big change from all of the Halloween parties I attended in college. I guess this means we’re all growing up.
My hula costume was a big hit and i felt very confident walking around in my bikini all night. I may not have had the six back of my dreams, but I was still proud of my slightly rounded tummy and would not have had it any other way.
I showed up at the party with a stash of ‘good’ beer in case the party just had generic Bud Light (yuck). I was happy when I saw my friend walking around with a Sam Adam Octoberfest and ended up having one of those instead of breaking into my stash.
I had plans to drink 2 beers, but I really only felt like having this one. I guess I was more interested in the candy and chocolate. 🙂
One of my friends made fudgy brownies that I just had to have a piece of.
This brownie was so rich and so delicious! She did a great job on these!
I was a little bummed when I showed up and saw no chocolate candies lying around. I really had my heart set of Reese and Kit Kats. Luckily, one of the party’s host heard me grumbling on the no chocolate and she pulled this giant bag of candy from her room which included Reeses and Kit Kats!!
Thank you Jessica!!!!! I savored every bite of these. The perfect Halloween treat!!!
A group of us started up a game of poker and I have to say my luck was on high last night! I kept being dealt great hands and was just blowing every one away. We were playing with candy corn and at the end of the night I ended up winning the whole loot!
Unfortunately I am not a fan of Candy Corn so my winning was consumed by all of the people I won it from in the first place. Oh well. It was fun!
I actually made it home at a decent time last night and was able to wake on the earlier side to get some blood work done. (Don’t worry I’m not sick, I just needed to get some routine tests done.)
Even though I arrived at the lab at 8:30am there was still an hour wait to get the tests done. I asked if I had to wait in the room or if I could leave and come back, they told me it was ok, but if I missed my name being called then they would put my name on the bottom of the list. The lab was right next to a park I was planning to run after my blood work, so instead of waiting I took advantage of the extra time and ran a quick three miles around the park. I always prefer running over waiting bored stiff on my butt, plus it made the time go by so much faster. I made it back to the lab in time for a quick game of solitaire on my Ipod before they called my name. I love it when things work out like that. 🙂
I was not allowed to eat anything before my tests so of course I was STARVING when I made it back to my apartment. I have been dying to try Caitlin’s French Waffles so I decided this morning was the perfect opportunity to test them out.
These really did put an interesting spin on traditional French Toast. I liked them alot and they were so easy, I would happily recreated them again.
I topped the French Waffles with a mix of fresh cut Strawberries, Sugar Free Syrup and the last bit of my Homemade Granola.
I don’t really have any plans today, so I will have to find some ways to entertain myself. Maybe a trip to the dog park or a much needed apartment cleaning? I hope everyone has a fabulous Saturday!
