If they’re anywhere near as sugary as mine are, you need to brush them twice.
No sugar coating on this blog today – it was 100% candy time!
This afternoon Becca, Zora and I enjoyed snacks of greek yogurt with granola plank and PB plus hot tea.
Zora liked the sunglasses she found in our house, plus the rocking chair that the husband sat in as a baby
When the husband came home he opened a pumpkin beer and gave Becca and me a sip. It was good, but Cottonwood is still king of pumpkin beers.
Just before dinnertime, we put on our costumes, Zombie Bride + Groom, to head down to our neighbors. You should have seen the husband lacing up my corset! And I think he did a pretty good job turning mascara into zombie eyeballs. I’ve also got blood dribbling down my chin. It was SO FUN to put my dress on again!
Our neighbors, Sarah and Adam, went as a Fisherwoman and Richard Simmons!
The summer version
For dinner we had yummy pizza from Hawthornes, a local place nearby that we’d never had. It was quite good! Very classic NY style big pieces. We had fun toppings: portabello and gorgonzola on the small and sausage/pepperoni/mushrooms/peppers on the large. I had 2 tiny pieces of the small and half a large slice.
Plus we brought a huge spinach salad with pepper, cuc, apple, cranberry, and blue cheese in a balsamic vinaigrette. Plus a yummy beer!
It was actually QUITE difficult to eat all of this in my wedding dress. I couldn’t even feel my stomach to know if I was hungry or full!
We didn’t get very many trick-or-treaters, but I did get a few girls ask me wide-eyed, “Are you a briiiiiide?!”
On to the SUGAR BOMB!!!
I had about 5 handfuls of this AMAZING candy corn peanut mix!
Plus 2 balls of each of these. I wasn’t crazy about either
Because all I really wanted was this! I eat one once a year on Halloween and it’s so good. Remember the ice cream Snicker bars? I used to LOVE those.
And I split these with the hub, along with a few peanut ones –
And had a ginger snap!
Then we went out to build the fire!!!!!! It was fun to get to know our neighbors. They have a great house and yard!
And I had a s’more…
And s’more, and s’more, and s’more, and s’more, and s’more, and s’more (some were just marshmallows though) I LOVE FIRES!!
And then I came home to find S’more from Rhodey Girl in my mailbox!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for the prize RG!!
I REALLY hope I don’t have a sugar hangover tomorrow I don’t feel that full, but you never know. It was a fun Halloween!
Tomorrow the husband is working at EF and I am working on school work. But we have plans in the evening to go to our friends’ house for dinner.
Have a TERRORific weekend!
