No Place Like Home

“There’s no place like home. There’s no place like home.” -Wizard of Oz

Hey guys!

Elizabeth and I just got home after a fun weekend in Nashville… just in time for Desperate Housewives! We stopped at my parent’s house on the way home to help my brother celebrate his 14th birthday.

We left Nashville at 4:00 and just a couple of hours into the drive, it got so dark. Got to love the time change! There’s a full moon out tonight… have you ever heard that a full moon encourages strange behavior? I’m not sure if that’s true or not!

The party went well last night. My costume was a tad ridiculous… it was so unflattering and uncomfortable! Within 15 minutes of putting it on, I cut the sleeves, rolled over the neckline, and took the hat off. Ha! I prefer cute costumes for Halloween, but my friend Danielle really loves ridiculous costumes so she picked these out.

The inflatable spider that we put up in the front yard…

Champagne + elderflower = necessary in order to put my costume on…

My sleeves were so short and tight… looking at this picture makes me laugh!

Good night!

Happy HalloWeekend!

I couldn’t help but laugh when I typed that, because it reminded me of my sorority days when we would volunteer during HalloWeekends at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio. Have you guys ever been there? It’s the most ridiculous place on Earth. We would pack into a few cars, drive a couple of hours, and work in their haunted houses for the weekend. They would give each of us $200 or so to donate to our charity. Good times!

It has been the perfect fall day in Nashville. My boyfriend lives here, so I visit often, but this is Elizabeth’s first visit. We went walking in the neighborhood this morning, so I’ll give you a tour of East Nashville…

We’re having a Halloween party tonight, so I thought that I’d leave you with a preview of the front yard…

More to come! The trick or treaters are arriving, so I need to put my costume on. I just heard a little boy say, “You have a spider in your yard.” So cute.

I hope that you enjoy the night!
