Keep Your Fingers Crossed!


Hi everyone!

It a glooorious day here – pretty nippy out, but the sun is shIning bright. :)

I slept in and lounged until the fabulous hour of 9:30, then Ben and I hit up the last Farmer’s Market of the season. Bonus – there was a Halloween costume parade for dogs! But, don’t worry, I forgot the battery to my camera in the charger at home. Still kicking myself! We even saw a bulldog in a king’s costume, complete with a crown and purple velvet cape.

Have a great afternoon everyone!

Ohhh – I must clear up the great trick-or-treat debacle from last night! Around here the kids trick-or-treat the night before Halloween on “beggars night”. They don’t go again on Halloween. I’m not sure how/why/when this tradition was started – it’s just how it’s always been around here! :D




Maybe you were wondering if my neighbor strung up an extremely scary, life-like mannequin to decorate his house for Halloween?? Yep, he did. Freaky! I opted for a far less threatening, kid-friendly pumpkin arrangement on the porch :)   My candy strategy for the trick-or-treaters this year was to buy…

Love at First Bite


This picture pretty much sums up how it’s been outside! It rained from the moment I left for work, to the moment I got home from work! Naturally, I was faced with the dreaded rainy day workout dilemma. Do I go home, put on my comfy sweats and lounge…
