Halloween. Part 3 of 3

This post is very overdue, like many things in my life. Ahem.

I was looking back at old posts and realized I never posted the third Halloween installment which is, in my opinion, the pièce de résistance. My roommates and I threw a pretty awesome party. The many hours of planning and preparing were totally worth it. The following is a small sample of many pictures taken.

Milk and taco.

Wonder woman and a two faced something?

Now a greek pita.



Otter pops.



Zombie cheerleader.



Miss Saigon.

Flapper and mobster. A Flobster if you will.

A complete breakfast. There may have been a stare down between the two milks.

Probably my favorite costume of the night. I was hoping someone would be Tobias!

Rosie and friends.


People from all walks of life are regaled with the tales of a pineapple farmer.


Someone said "let's take a picture of the two Greeks!" B was sad since he was supposed to be Dobby.


Rosie. Miss Fortune. Alice.


Powerpuff Girls.


Time traveling Amelia Earhart and a redbox. The redbox was the most entertaining costume of the night. She could quote multiple scenes from all of the movies on her box. I think we tried them all.

Very good times.

You've gotta live to party!

So, it turns out I'm 25 now! I had a wonderful birthday weekend that included baking cupcakes, birthday lunch, some shopping, birthday dinner and a wild party.

The only picture I got of dinner at Bangkok Grill:
Party time!

Last year (which I got all the pictures ready for but apparently never blogged) I had people paint me a watercolor. When they were all done I took them and got them bound into a pretty sweet book. This year i decided to do almost the same thing but I told people the pictures needed to be either a self portrait or a memory that we shared. I also threw in markers, crayons, and colored pencils in addition to the watercolor since apparently some people have paint related anxiety. I loved the book from last year but this one is going to be so much better, there are some pretty funny memories depicted in there.
This is only part of the future book:
Michael hit his head on the lamp many times.
I've got some very good looking coworkers. Seriously.

I made the cupcakes for the party and they were delicious! My mom thought I was crazy for baking my own cupcakes but I loved having the excuse to try out some new recipies. I should have taken a picture before they were so close to gone. From l to r we had spice cake with caramel frosting, chocolate with peanut butter frosting and pineapple coconut with pineapple frosting. The only issue I had was the appearance of the pineapple frosting. I would like to try that one again and see what I can do to doctor it up.
It really was a wonderful day, I've got some pretty wonderful friends. Thank you if you came (in person or in spirit) and participated!
