Happy Halloween!!!

Volleyball match tonight and I tried to my team that we should dress up like this for our game.

They didn't want to.  Can you believe it?  What is that about?

I don't care though, I'm totally showing up like this. Rockin' it out, all on my own.
I really hope we win.
Gonna look like (even more of) an idiot if we get our butts kicked..

Candy Crime

Happy Halloween! Very excited to have trick-or-treaters visiting our apartment this evening!
One small glitch: routine candy spot check this morning revealed a hole in the corner of one of the bags...

I Put A Spell On You

Only one viewing this year!  Figured I'd try to limit my annual Sanderson Sister intake so as not to spook DVC.

Ghosts of Halloweens Past


We are going to have the cutest kids ever. Stinky little weirdos, but dang cute.

Easy Like Sunday Morning


Popped downtown this morning to pick up a gift for a friend at Century 21 (who are we kidding, though, went home with more treats for myself than anyone else, but that's a different story) and got out of the subway right at the foot of Trinity Church.  It was just after 10 and the service was scheduled to begin at 10:15, so I figured I'd sit in for a bit.

Excellent start - I love a good boot scraper!


Trinity boasts an all-digital organ, which fills nearly the entire back wall of the sanctuary.

There's also an abundance of intricate stained glass.

Plenty to look at if the sermon has bored you!

The gardens are also spectacular. I've passed by many times and peeked in through the gates, but never taken the time to walk through and explore before.  It was quite peaceful on such a foggy morning.


Beautiful headstones fill the courtyard, some of them so old that the writing has completely worn off.


A quiet moment before service.

In comes the choir! Reminded me of the good ol' acolyte days at First United Methodist AG.


Happy Sunday y'all.

Such a cheeseball name. I did not have high expectations for this place, but it was SO FUN.

Check it out, Dad!!

If you've never tried a Tasti-Lee tomato, you'd better get your little bottom to the store and pick some up!

Italian puns?  Hmmm, I think I know who this is for....




We started with a variety of cheeses and salamis, which comes with honey and hazelnuts and crusty bread. Yummmmmm times a thousand.

The restaurant is quite famous for the beers that they brew onsite, but we didn't try any while there. At $10/pink they were a little steep for my taste, at least with dinner; might be fun to come back for a tasting sometime.
