Happy November! You guys, October seriously flew by, amiright? I feel like just yesterday it was my birthday. Time flies…
After continuing our Halloween celebrating all the way to Friday this weekend, I am officially Halloween-ed out. However, this year’s celebration was definitely one to remember!
Friday night was our HANNAween party. My roomie Hanna’s bday is the day after Halloween, so the name seemed appropriate. We both took a half day and spent the whole afternoon prepping- our place looked AWESOME! It all came from Hanna’s brain too. I guess with a birthday around Halloween you get pretty into it!
In addition to the bloody bathroom, luminaries, and fog machine, we had Night of the Living Dead playing in the backyard on a projector screen (plus a fire pit and s’mores making station!). I was Piper Chapman (from Orange is the New Black) and Hanna made an adorable Lambchop!
I don’t have any pictures of Saturday, but it involved a 4 mile run, lots of clean up, and several MORE birthday parties in the evening. So many birthdays around this time of year!
On Sunday morning, brunch was necessary. Jeff and I went to Limelight and were stoked to see that a bunch of our friends from the night before had the exact same idea. Brunch party! I got the Green Eggs and Ham, which was a scramble with spinach, eggs, ham, bell peppers, ALL OF THE CHEESE, and pesto. It was amazing! Oh, and my brother showed up too! (on the left)
I capped off the weekend with a pre-dodgeball bike ride with Matt and Mikhail. We went along the American River bike trail all the way to Sac State. This might be my favorite new bike route in Sacramento, it was seriously beautiful! It was a perfect partly sunny ~65 degree day and a good way to sweat off the craziness of the weekend.
I’m hoping to settle down this week and avoid getting sick (lack of sleep + changing weather = surefire conditions for me to get a cold!) because Carly and I are leaving for Chicago on Friday morning!!! Wahoo! So excited to spend time with Blends this weekend.
Have a great week!
Have you ever hosted a Halloween party?
Any suggestions for our trip to Chicago?
