Cold As A Witch’s…

October 29, 2011


Cackle, cackle!


Tonight Matt and I attended the Arthritis Foundation’s First Annual Bone Bash as the bread sponsors for the evening. We donated about 50 loaves of bread to feed the crowd.


Please note that cereal tastes better than Hansel + Gretel did…


I dressed as a witch – wearing an old formal dress I had along with pointy-toe shoes and lots of green eye makeup. Seamane let me borrow her witch hat! I had a feeling that girl was a witch… (just kidding Seamane!)



Matt went as a vampire zombie guy. You know, tux, black eyes, blood – the works.


I had fun putting on his eyeliner :mrgreen:


We started the evening with Skeletinis – some kind of raspberry vodka drink


That came with a gummi worm!!!


The Glee cast were there! This was probably the first costume party I’ve been to where everyone was in costume – that makes me happy!


There was an excellent band


A silent auction..

And a buffet of BBQ-style foods, including our bread.


The bread was my favorite item besides the baked beans, slaw, taters and rib [how appropriate!]


These were pretty yummy for dessert!


This witch wore her cauldron cooking Danskos to the party – because of the walk there – and changed into fashionable pumps for the event. But the heels started to hurt my square green feet, so I put the Danskos back on. Witches can look frumpy, right? Because I also had on a green knitted scarf and velvet jacket because it was FREEZING in there! Seriously, cold as a witch’s…well, you know.


To help with the warmth, we conveniently got cappuccinos from the Shenandoah Joe’s cart inside the arena!! Decaf of course so I will sleep tonight. Delicious and made up for a smallish dinner.

Ever seen a peanut in a coffee shop?


Going to share my eye makeup remover with my husband! Then settle into our warm couch for the Halloween episode of The Office!

Fun! That rat shot sent shivers down my spine!


2 Kinley @ Better Off Barefoot October 29, 2011 at 9:10 pm

Pretty sure I ran in a hat just like that today for a Haunted Hustle – lol!! And I love those Skeletinis! Although I would like anything with gummy worms…


3 Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning October 29, 2011 at 9:10 pm

I have to say- Matt looks very handsome! (And you look great, too- duh.)
I’m so surprised that I haven’t seen people dressed up like the Glee cast – it seems like such an obvious idea! Love it!


4 KathEats October 29, 2011 at 9:12 pm

I always think he looks sharp in a tux :)


5 Sana October 29, 2011 at 9:52 pm

Hahah, Matt needs to wear a tux more often, I love that look!


6 Abby @ Abz 'n' Oats October 29, 2011 at 9:11 pm

Looks like such a fun night! I love the pic with the gummy worm in your mouth and the one of Matt taking a drink of wine is definitely a good one too!


7 Mom October 29, 2011 at 9:12 pm

Looks so fun and you guys look fabulous as a witch and a zombie. Cool you donated all the bread. Bet it was delicious!


8 Angelea October 29, 2011 at 9:18 pm

How fun! You look adorable and Matt makes a great vampire! Great job with his eye makeup! Mr. Peanut is super hilarious. I LOVE Halloween!


9 Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga October 29, 2011 at 9:31 pm

You guys both look great! Matt cleans up very well as a Vampire. I love the shots you got of him chilling with a drink in hand. Great clicks.

And you with the gummy worm…haha!

Glad you two had a great time and that cause is very near and dear to me. What a great night. I bet the other costumes were great to see, too!


10 Meredith October 29, 2011 at 9:53 pm

LOVE that first photo of you! Awesome costumes!

I was just wondering if the OpenSky people have any plans to ship to Canada in the near future :). I’d love to buy some Nuttzo if you ever have it in stock again.


11 KathEats October 30, 2011 at 9:31 am

I dont think they do :(


12 Christine @ Oatmeal in my Bowl October 29, 2011 at 9:54 pm

You two look Fabulous! Love the skelletinis too. Very cool looking drink for the party!


13 lynda @ healthy hoboken girl October 29, 2011 at 10:20 pm

Sound like a fun nice…you guys are such an adorable couple!! How many times do you have to share make-up and remover with your husband????!!! Too funny!!

I’m glad to hear about your shoe changes…I walk all over the place, and always carry other pairs of shoes! Glad I’m not the only one


14 Dave October 29, 2011 at 10:29 pm

I think I was scrolling down to fast because the mouse looked a bit too lifelike!


15 emily October 29, 2011 at 10:44 pm

You both look gruesome yet adorable! Candy in booze always make my heart sing too; one time a visiting friend insisted that we visit Justin Timberlake’s restaurant in NYC (gag me) but I ended up getting a sand pail of a drink with gummy worms for bait and it made the whole meal worth it!


16 Khushboo October 29, 2011 at 11:25 pm

Tuxes are a good look on Matt :)


17 Emily @ The Divine Carrot October 30, 2011 at 2:39 am

That looks like SO much fun!!!!! In Germany we don’t celebrate Halloween – bummer!! Although we do get a day off for all saint’s on November 1… :)


18 erica October 30, 2011 at 5:16 am

you guys look great! looks like a great event!


19 chelsey @ clean eating chelsey October 30, 2011 at 7:04 am

Okay, some things I loved.

~ the subtle comment about Hansel and Gretel

~ the peanut in the coffee shop.



20 Lauren @ What Lauren Likes October 30, 2011 at 7:06 am

Cool! Sounds like a fun night! I love the glee cast picture, that is hilarious :)


21 Kori October 30, 2011 at 7:19 am

You both looked great and the gathering looks like it was a ton of fun! I definitely had a good laugh about the peanut coming out of the coffee shop! =D


22 Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin October 30, 2011 at 7:20 am

What a fun night! I love Halloween parties! The best part is always seeing other people’s costumes. 😀


23 kathleen @ the daily crumb October 30, 2011 at 7:29 am

love the costume! you guys are one of my favorite couples :)


24 KathEats October 30, 2011 at 9:31 am

:) Thanks!


25 Hillary October 30, 2011 at 7:42 am

At a certain point, comfort outweighs costume. Just like when mom used to make you wear a coat to go trick or treating!


26 Amanda October 30, 2011 at 7:43 am

You and Matt look great! And those vodka drinks look pretty awesome, too. 😉

I got a kick out of this: “Please note that cereal tastes better than Hansel + Gretel did…” hahaha


27 Katherine October 30, 2011 at 8:03 am

I know that Glee cast! You know Charlottesville’s small…. “Puck” used to live on my parents’ street growing up, was great friends with my brother, and his family went to the beach with us one year; his wife- “Britney”?- and I coached lacrosse together; her younger sister- “Rachel”?- was on the team that we coached and is good friends with my sister-in-law! Small, small world!!


28 KathEats October 30, 2011 at 9:31 am

No way!! Hilarious that you can identify them to me by their characters :)


29 J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) October 30, 2011 at 8:06 am

Looks like so much fun! I was a witch one year, I think I was 6. You guys look great! Matt’s makeup was done really well, lol.

I love when adults dress in costume. It’s a nice change from the everyday. :)


30 Katie @ Talk Less, Say More October 30, 2011 at 8:37 am

Looks like it was a fun evening! :)


31 Hope October 30, 2011 at 8:40 am

You and Matt look great! Looks like such a fun party! I love the martini with the gummi worm. The rat is scary!!


32 Diana October 30, 2011 at 8:46 am

Those are great costumes – so dapper!


33 Cait's Plate October 30, 2011 at 9:05 am

That coffee looks INCREDIBLE! You guys look so cute :) Glad you had such a fun night!


34 Fran@ Broken Cookies Don't Count October 30, 2011 at 9:15 am

Looks like a very fun evening! Love the costumes!


35 Sara R. October 30, 2011 at 9:25 am

That first picture of you is probably my favorite ever! Awesome costumes, and those drinks look amazing!


36 katie @KatieDid October 30, 2011 at 9:39 am

You two looked awesome! Looks like a really fun night out, and for a good cause too.


37 Lea @ Healthy Coconut October 30, 2011 at 10:17 am

I know it’s fake …..but didn’t like that rat shot on the plate, lol! too realistic…eek.


38 Kat October 30, 2011 at 11:57 am

If that martini glass is glowing, I’m going to have to go on a quick shopping trip.


39 KathEats October 30, 2011 at 2:56 pm

It did!!


40 Laura Ann October 30, 2011 at 12:00 pm

Thank you so much for supporting the Arthritis Foundation!!! As a 30-something with inflammatory knee arthritis, I’ve learned just what arthritis really is and how it affects sooo many people. I appreciate that you guys supported this awesome cause.


41 KathEats October 30, 2011 at 2:57 pm

Sorry to hear about your knee. My foot had tons before I had my surgery – so painful


42 Angel7 October 30, 2011 at 12:57 pm

What a fun night!

I have never seen a peanut in a coffee shop :)


43 TeenyLittleSuperChef October 30, 2011 at 1:04 pm

Man, Matt even looks sexy when he’s dressed as a dead zombie. What a total babe! Way to be Kath. You look pretty darn hot too in your witch’s costume. I hope you guys had a great time at the party.
P.S. What’s abnormal about seeing a peanut in a coffee shop? You’ve obviously never been to Portland :)


44 KathEats October 30, 2011 at 2:57 pm


And HA to Portland!


45 Christena October 30, 2011 at 2:10 pm

Oh my! Matt looks just like Brandon Flowers (The Killers) in that picture where he is leaned up against the bar staring straight at the camera. Must be the eyeliner! Y’all both looked great! Love a good costume party.


46 Julia H. @ The Petite Spiel October 30, 2011 at 2:57 pm

Ahahaha, Matt looks great! He pulls off the mischievous vampire look well!

The Halloween episode of “The Office” was great, btw…I’ve been a little disappointed in the episodes this season (maybe I just miss Michael Scott), but this was a good one!


47 KathEats October 30, 2011 at 2:58 pm

We watched it this morning and it had me laughing out loud 3 separate times!! LOVED DWIGHT!


48 Molly @ RDexposed October 30, 2011 at 4:56 pm

I missed the last episode!! My favorite Halloween costume on the show: Jim’s Facebook!


49 Ashley @ Coffee Cake and Cardio October 30, 2011 at 6:17 pm

What a fun event!! I’ve always wanted to go to a big halloween party.


50 Kristina October 30, 2011 at 9:32 pm

HA. Totally thought that was a real mouse…


51 Thealogian October 31, 2011 at 3:32 pm

Honestly, all the real witches I know (you know, pagan/hippie chicks), would prolly wear the Danskos!

Also, gee, the long hours at the Bakery sure are getting to Matt! I mean, look at those circles under his eyes!


52 Lindsay November 2, 2011 at 8:50 am

My heart may have gullibly skipped a beat upon mentioning of the GLee cast…I was like, REALLY?? oh no…thats not them, ha haha. Looks like a great night, and at least people were in costume! Koreans do not really celebrate Halloween, so we stuck out like sour thumbs, but it was humorous and fun!


53 Yaron March 26, 2013 at 1:15 pm

As a RA diagnosed, it’s very nice of you to support the Arthritis Foundation evening…
