Post-holiday fog

 Happy Tuesday! I had a cah-razypants Labor Day weekend! The weather is crappy, and today I'm still in a fog. I really want to go home and cuddle my poodle. Quick recap...

Friday night: lovely romantical date with manfriend to Medina, a tasty Moroccan eatery
Saturday: TEXAS football and a wedding for one of manfriend's high-school buddies
Sunday: I was bizarelly under the weather...more on that later
Monday: went to see Inception...marvelous.

Today I'm thankful that it's Top 2 Tuesday over at the Undomestic Momma. Her ready-made post topic is very welcome this busy day...

What are your Top 2 Favorite Things About Fall?

1. Pumpkin-flavored things
I love all pumpkin treats. Especially the godsend that is Starbucks' Pumpkin Spice Latte. Duh. Oh and by the way, it's BACK. I also will indulge in all your varieties of pumpkin baked treats - pie, breads, muffins, seeds - love it ALL. Somehow, it just doesn't appeal to me any other time of year! Mmmmm.....

I love all holidays, and this is arguably my favorite-est of all! I love the costumes, the tricks, the festiveness, the traditions! All other holidays have some serious subtext (Birth of Christ, re-birth of Christ, etc.), but not this one! All silliness all the time.

Last year manfriend and I did this:....Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum. Ridiculous.
Although the fat pants were comfy .... NOT. HOT.
The year before, Alice and the Mad Hatter:

Yes, he made his "mad" face pretty much all night.
For this year, I think I'm off the Alice in Wonderland thing and have another couple of great ideas up my sleeve!

Yay for Fall!

PS: Although I'm a day late, (sorry, Labor Day I didn't even open my computer) there is another fabulous edition of Mingle Monday happening over at Life of Meg. Get it.


  1. I love love love Halloween! It is one of my most favorite holidays of the year! I always look forward to fall just for this holiday haha.

  2. Yay! I love your choices! Cute costumes. I totally agree about the pumpkin - my favorite indulgence for fall!

  3. Hi Casey! Thanks for the blog comment! Yours is so cute! I am now inspired to get a pumpkin spiced deliciousness item at Starbucks. The couple Halloween costumes you and your man friend put together are awesome. I would love to do that with the husband but last year he just bought one of those giant magnet costumes with the chicks all over it (chick magnet...clever..). Can't wait to see what y'all come up with!

  4. Great picks! Love all things Pumpkiny.


Thanks for the comment! I"m sending you a big cuddly warm bearhug through the interwebs....
