Thank you all for your great Pumpkin ideas.  I’m going to do it, I swear I will eat that pumpkin and most likely I’ll use one of your suggestions.  Whatever I end up making, I’ll take pictures.

Speaking of pumpkins: Happy Halloween! I’m feeling a little nostalgic about Halloweens past.  Therefore, a Pretty Imperfect episode from last Halloween:

Sigh, those were the days.  I actually had a conversation with a friend (a male friend) yesterday that reminded me of this video.  He was asking if I were going to be a slutty something and I said that no, I never dress slutty.  He said, “why not, it’s the one time a year you can without it effecting your reputation.”  I kindly informed him that I’m not particularly concerned with my reputation, but I’m not necessarily comfortable dressing scantily.  This seemed to baffle him.  I’m pretty sure in his mind all women are just dying for the opportunity to take their clothes off.  It must be nice in there.

What are you dressing as?

This year I’m heading out to Long Island to hand out candy to the kids in my parents neighborhood.  I’m sure that since it Halloween is on a Saturday this year there will be trick-or-treaters all day long, and that can be quite a workout for the folks.  My parents always give the best stuff, so I’m pretty sure word has caught on by now 😉

In preparation I started out my morning with an AM Yoga DVD.  I was so inspired by my really fulfilling workout the other day I’ve decided to give yoga another opportunity to woo me.  It really is a great way to start the day!

I fell asleep last night without recapping my Friday, so before I set off for my day of feeding junk food to children here’s a recap of my Friday:

Breakfast 10.30.09

Apple pie oatmeal!
I had left over apple pie filling (basically just apples, brown sugar, cinnamon, and lemon juice) from a treat I made the family a few weekends ago.  I decided to unload the leftovers on my breakfast.  It was AMAZING.  I topped it off with some walnuts for crunch

Lunch

Penne a la vodka with shrimp

Sorry, the lighting at the restaurant was pretty rough to work with.  This was such an indulgence, and worth every morsel it was exactly what I needed at the end of a super stressful week.

Have a great weekend!
