Happy Monday everyone!
Did you have a fun Halloween? What was your costume? I absolutely love seeing people dressed up in costumes, so I was scrolling through Instagram and Facebook checking them all out.
We didn’t dress-up this year, but I did have a special Halloween date…
My long-time friend Jessica came to stay with Saturday night before heading back out to her home in Alaska. Her husband is stationed there at the moment and BOY could she not be further away! I was so happy she was using the Charlotte airport to go home, because I was the lucky chauffeur. And I got to meet her almost 6 month year old son- who’s actually my God son!
When we lived near each other we would often go on breakfast dates to Waffle House (our options were limited in our small town). Since there is no WH in Alaska, we knew where we’d be having our dinner.
I got my old standby- two eggs over-medium with wheat toast, tomato slices, and coffee by the pot. This was really yummy minus the fact that the tomatoes were obviously out of season. Don’t you hate seeing summer tomatoes quickly leave us?
Afterwards we sat outside by the fire for a bit, chatting and eating s’mores. No trick or treaters in our neighborhood :(.
For our “scary movie” we watched Dark Places, the film adaptation of Gilligan Flynn’s novel. I really enjoy her books and I liked the Gone Girl movie, so I was excited to see this one! I found it to be very freaky and disturbing. So is it weird if I say I liked it? Terry wasn’t a fan. I’m ready for them to make Sharp Objects– that was my favorite book.
Until next time!
Sunday was our church’s homecoming, so we enjoyed a southern gospel music group and then had dinner on the grounds. Our people really know how to cook. There was enough food to feed an army!
Other things this weekend included working on my dietetic internship application, homework (not enough of it), and grocery shopping.
It is Sunday night and I should probably be in bed right now, so I am going to try to hit the sheets.
Did you dress up for Halloween?
Do you like Gilligan Flynn’s novels?
