Just let me have ONE more post that I can talk about the one day a year where I am not the only person that eats ridiculous amounts of candy.
First, I have to show you my cutest nephew (character from Harry Potter) and nieces (a Jr. Chef and a Poodle). I sure miss running around the neighborhood together seeing how many houses we can hit up for candy before it gets dark. Maybe I can convince Billy next year that Halloween is in fact a big enough holiday for me to fly home for.
After our trick-or-treating extravaganza yesterday afternoon we were quite exhausted from walking up and down a street for an hour and a half (I need to get running again… my endurance is fading quickly). We chose a diner called Bills based solely on the fact that it usually has a huge line out the building. That is the best way to tell if a restaurant is good.
We were right. We split the blueberry pancakes and breakfast burrito with the perfect hash browns. I will be going back to Bill’s. ***Please note: do not take all of my food recommendations seriously because I pretty much love any and all restaurants and foods (except for olives).
Girl is getting STRONG and her mohawk is growing longer and longer everyday. 11 WEEKS!!!! It feels like just yesterday that I was flying to California, going into labor 10 hours later and staying with people we had never met before because we didn’t have an apartment yet.
For dinner we went over to a friend’s house for incredible taco salads. If you are considering moving, I highly recommend coming here just for the avocados.
Not many trick-or-treaters showed up and so we were forced to finish off the candy for them.
Our next stop was a Halloween party and we had these cookie sandwiches with frosting in the middle. Cookie sandwiches are genius because it is a great way to make it socially acceptable to eat two cookies at a time loaded with frosting.
Brooke’s first Halloween was a complete success. Time to start making sure that her first Thanksgiving will be amazing by making her a turkey costume.
How many trick-or-treaters came to your house?
Are you a picky eater or the opposite of a picky eater like me?

Favorite pancake mix-in?
-Usually chocolate chips but those blueberries were pretty darn good.
