Tonight has been productive!
Zak and I are trying to figure out our Halloween costumes for the Friday night party, the first of three we're attending this weekend. We've dabbled with super heroes (many at the party will be dressing accordingly), I pouted when he didn't like either my True Blood or Twilight couple ideas, and I loved his two dancing turtle costume scheme - LOL - it just isn't very realistic to design and make the costumes in such a short timeframe!
See, last year at the same person's party, I won an award for my costume!. The theme was Zak's idea and was very non-PC... let's just say that we were going for "bear-mauled victims" and he based it off of a true story / movie. Timothy Treadwell & his girlfriend Amie Huguenard, specifically.
Ehhh :-) We do love the movie "Grizzly Man" and are big into wildlife preservation, but wanted to have a little fun. Anyway, per my suggestion we added zombie makeup and lots of fake blood, and I totally won the prize for best female costume. Score!
I would love to sweep the contest again this year with a Carrie costume or something, but want to have fun dressed in a couples outfit with Zak. As of right now... we're probably going to be zombie bikers since I have my retired Jagermeister chaps to wear. That's right, I said it, I was a "Jagerette" promo model for the brand for several years. And yes, I still have my chaps. Ha!
What are you planning for your Halloween costume? Know of any cute couples costume ideas that would be pretty easy to put together?
Friday night's party is at the same spot as last year, where my friends and I used to hang out when we were 18 / 19. An old school party basement. Ah, the memories.
Anyway, on to the eats.
Last night, I drove like 15 minutes out of my way, to a different grocery store than usual, because a product was calling to me from the freezer.
You know it. I have jumped on the pumpkin ice cream bandwagon, and am so glad!
Have you tried some yet this fall?
I enjoyed mine with 2 chopped squares of a Green & Blacks organic dark chocolate almond bar. I then fell into a blissful food coma.
This AM, I rose early to take Rufus to the vet. He's been having issues with his netutered boy parts and the doc wanted a blood sample and x-ray.
After I returned home, I had more time than usual and decided to treat myself to a good ol' bowl of oats.
1/2 cup each of oats, water, vanilla soy milk, topped with 1 tbsp organic peanut butter and 1 tsp raspberry preserves.
Could you believe that this little bowl of oats filled me right up? I could only eat 2/3 of this!
After breakfast, the vet called and said they needed to put Rufus under anesthesia, because he was drawing more blood from her staff than they were able to take from him. That cat.
For lunch, coworker Kyle and I went to Shah Jee's... *drool*. No photos today, I got the same as usual - chana (chickpeas) masala and basmati rice. It was da bomb.
Later, after picking up Rufus and heading home, it was time for dinner. I picked up some Flatout wraps yesterday and decided to try one out.
In the mix - one Gardenburger, about 1/4 red pepper, green olives, spinach, horseradish mustard. On the side, some Manny's no salt tortilla chips with some green salsa whose hottness kicked my ass.
The wrap was good, but one of the flavors was nasty and did not play well with the others. I'm looking at you, horseradish mustard! Ick.
I loved how the wrap held everything together. Typically my tortillas do not do that, and therefore I didn't like to use them for wraps. This Flat Out wrap changes things!
What did I have for dessert, you ask? More pumpkin ice cream, obviously :-)
With some more chocolate thrown in for good measure.
I'm getting ready to hit the hay, will be attempting to wake up early again tomorrow. G'night, my blog friends!
