Halloween was fun this year.  For the second year in a row our girls creative night theme was "pumpkins and pinot."  I'm happy to report that once again there were no knife/wine related injuries.  *Plus* I hosted this year, therefore I got to keep all the tasty pumpkin seeds for myself!!  H even cleaned the guts off them for me. 

A bunch of us also went out to shake some tailfeathers at the Booty Vortex show at Johnny D's.  (despite the Noreaster!)  I got crafty and made my own costume this year.  Took an old baseball cap, removed the brim, painted it black, and sewed a bunch of rubber snakes to it.  Added a pair of star sunglasses and I was good to go.

Second place baby!!!
 I just purchased another 50 snakes to improve my headdress.  Just wait till next year!!

Hello again

 Yep, so once again I've abandoned you all to dead air.  Sorry, but honestly you must be used to it by now. 

So I'll now deluge you with a flurry of catch-up posts, not necessarily in any order....

Thanksgiving was last week, I'll start there.  Tim fried another fantastic turkey, delicious as usual.  I made some super-yummy pumpkin hummus.  I also renewed my gym membership, and as luck would have it they were hosting the "Pie in the Sky" event, so I purchased a pie as well, fetching me a discount on my membership, $ for charity, and a Pumpkin pie.  win-win-win!!

Now I have to give a shout-out to the maker of my pie....A whole slew of Boston restaurants donate pies to this charity, my pie happened to come from "Cakes to Remember".  I had never heard of them, but both my Mom and I thought it was the best pumpkin pie we had ever tasted.  I had to dig the box out to see who made it.
