Halloween 2009 Recap

by Meghann on November 1, 2009

Twas a magical night in the kingdom of Graduate Meghann.


Derek and I were supposed to be Cinderella and Prince Charming, but everyone thought we looked more like Prom King and Queen. Either way I felt like a fairy tale princess in my poofy dress and crown and thats all that mattered. ๐Ÿ™‚

The original plan was to have a light dinner before heading out to Megan’s for the Halloween party, but for some reason burgers sounded good.


I added chopped onions, minced garlic, ground flax seed, red pepper flakes, jalapenos, and soy sauce to a pound of lean ground beef then formed three patties.

The three patties went on the george foreman until they were medium well. I served myself 1/2 of a burger in a pita with spinach, tomato, & honey mustard sauce.


Per Derek’s request we had Okra Fries on the side.


As well as left over Oven Potato Fries from Thursday night.


It was a really tasty meal. I don’t eat burgers very often, but I do enjoy them when I do. ๐Ÿ™‚

After dinner my Prince Charming and I headed to our ball i.e. Megan’s Super Spectacular Halloween Party!


Caitlin, Kelly, Me, Megan, and Brielle.

Megan was a bit nervous throwing her first Halloween party, but I would deem it a big success!

How could you go wrong with…

Beer Pong

Jason was so soft! He was soft like a big Teddy Bear.


I think Anthony won for best costume of the night…


A Food Blogger!!


Kelly should be proud!


Around 1:00 am I was in danger of turning into a pumpkin, so we called it a night.

Thanks again Megan and Jason for throwing a great party!

The extra hour of sleep was a welcomed addition this morning. Derek and I took our time getting up this morning before taking off on a leisurely run this morning.

Before we left I was a little hungry so I nibbled on a Glo Bar on the way out the door.


We were suppose to go 2.5 miles, but I got lost in a foreign neighborhood and ended up tacking on an extra mile. Oh well.

Luckily we did eventually end up back at the car and after a quick changed headed in to Shakers for breakfast.


I decided on the Greek Omelet for my order.


The omelet was filled with tomatoes, spinach and feta cheese. I requested egg whites instead of whole eggs.


On the side I had fruit


And a biscuit with strawberry jam.



Today is all about shopping. I NEED to find a cute outfit to wear while in San Francisco next weekend. I also am in desperate need of a new jacket, apparently I own no cute or practical ones for walking around a city.

Have a great Sunday!

12 Simone @ P:T November 1, 2009 at 2:27 pm

It looks like you all had such a fun night!! Sadly I got sick last night BEFORE going out, so I had to stay in and hear all of the wild chaos going on outside while I stayed in bed with my trusty upchuck bucket next to me. ๐Ÿ™ It is okay though, I am sure this city had enough Paris Hiltons roaming the streets last night, lol. I think it is so cute that now that you and Derek have run a race together, you two can go on morning runs together like its not biggie!! YAY!

cinderella ain’t got nothing on you girl — and PLEASE tell me Derek is wearing a burger king crown? that totally completes the look.

27 Derek November 1, 2009 at 8:36 pm

You know it. BK crown all night long! =)

28 Amy November 1, 2009 at 7:49 pm

Loks like a great night. Try Burlington coat factory or TJMaxx for cute, affordable jackets. At least that’s where some good ones were when I lived in the states 4 years ago – maybe things have changed.:)
