Halloween Party and Weekend R

J and I hosted our 3rd annual Halloween party and we went all out!

There were decorations and thematic food, and a photo booth:

and our costumes took actual effort:

Tying a bowtie was a slight challenge

Despite the festive-ness, it may be our last party. Do not get me wrong. It was a house full of people we all really enjoy and consider our good friends. But, with the exception of 2 couples, they were all good friends who did not know each other. J and I struggled to be in 3 different places at a time and we ended feeling stretched thin. As I was pondering it I realized at the first Halloween game night it was all J’s friends and I was the outsider. For last year’s it was mostly J’s friends and a couple sets of mine, so overlap. But this year—lots of independent circles. While we are torn about hosting a large event again and ended tired, we are glad we did it. We love our people, and it was a fun time to put on some costumes with tasty snacks.

The Sunday after the party we went to late church service so we could get our house put back together beforehand. After getting home from the “membership interest” meeting (we joined) we went to Piedmont Park and walked the Beltline and trails for about 2-2.5 hours. It was so hot and I did not feel well so there was no running involved. After getting home I prepped our lunches (chopped Brussels sprout salad for me, processed zucchini for J’s veggie side) and made dinner (stuffed cheesy chicken, roasted cauliflower, basalmic green beans, and focaccia bread from the farmers market). I worked on a photo job before going to watch Walking Dead, then hurried to bed.
