The Aftermath

Well hello, Cupcake! How was your Halloween?

Let us review, shall we?

Thursday night with my dance girls was so much fun! It was seriously the most fun I'd had in a really long time! The haunted house was really creepy. I had never been to one before but it was really fun with the perfect amount of scary. Afterward we came back to my house for cider and Halloween treats with our scary movie. Haha we got so freaked out and kept screaming at every little part in the movie. It's so much fun to be girly sometimes :P My puppy chow was also a huge hit! I think I ate too much of it or something though because Saturday morning at work I felt suuuuper hungover. I couldn't figure it out at first because I hadn't been drinking at all and I've never gotten sick from too much sugar before but I suppose after the cleanse I was more sensitive than normal so yeah I ended up getting sick at work which was no fun but then I was totally fine after that.

So Friday began the Halloween festivities for everyone else I know. After work I went to the mall to get the finishing touches for my costume for Saturday night and then rushed home to get ready for the festivities. We had a Halloween party at my house which was insane! It was so much fun though! We got 3 kegs and easily had 100 people show up. I'm definitely thinking it was more than that though. My roommates and I dressed up as Legends of the Hidden Temple. For such a huge party nothing really got broken or anything. We're still cleaning up but it's really no big deal and overall we just had so much fun!! It was great!

Saturday a.k.a Actual Halloween was great too! It was a game day which means I had to wake up at 8 which was a little bit of a struggle after going to bed at 4am but I would never in a million years miss a Badger football game! We played Purdue and absolutely killed them so even though it was freezing outside, it was so much fun! I get so into my football. I'm so sad there's only one more home game this year! So after the game I came home and took a three-hour nap (much needed) before Halloween night #2 started. I dressed as Medusa last night and it almost didn't work because I couldn't figure out how to tie my toga or get the snakes to stay in my hair. I almost gave up and just stayed in but not going out on a Madison Halloween is blasphemy! So my costume finally worked out and I ended up going to one of our neighbor's parties and then playing games at my house with a few of my friends until the wee hours of the morning.

Today I had work (but not till noon, thank God). It's been a pretty uneventful day because that's basically all I did. I love work though because I can make delicious smoothies in a super nice blender! I came home and I'm eating brussel sprouts for the first time:



Yum yum! These are so good! They're just steamed with a little olive oil drizzled over them and then some salt and pepper. Super yummy and simple, I love it!

This weekend I've also been eating my Butternut Squash Soup but I added some quinoa in it a couple times which is also really yummy.

So other than that, not much to report! I have to do something with this squash and pie pumpkin that I've been using as a decoration so look forward to some sort of recipe from that!

Peace and Love,
