Halloween Par-tay!!!!

I love Halloween- the dressing up, the candy, the crisp autumn air, the pumpkin carving... it's all fun to me. Usually my husband Adam and I are all dressed up with nowhere to go. This year we decided we had a great couple's costume and wanted to be seen. The only way to assure that is to host a Halloween party- and that's what we did this past Saturday night.

We dressed up as The Dude and Maude Lebowski from the movie "The Big Lebowski." It was from the drug induced dream sequence of the bowling obsessed main character, The Dude. Here we are below followed by the movie poster featuring the scene as a point of reference. Like the "bodice accessories?" No, that isn't my hair. Yes, it is my husband's! No, I don't know why Adam has that goofy look on his face- he's much cuter with an actual smile! Yes, our kitchen has ugly mint green trim and cabinets that I want to change.

We had a great group of folks from my online message board on The Nest as well as a bunch of our neighbors. We had a ton of fun and a TON of food! I have all my goodies listed out in the posts below. In addition, I'd like to say thanks to some folks for providing equally yummy treats...

  • Nicole for the Oreo Truffles
  • Cathy for the Spanikopita
  • Kristen for the Cheese Ball (recipe please!)
  • My apologies to the kind folks that brought Sugar Cookies
  • Nancy for the Juice Boxes for the kiddies and the cute Halloween kitchen linens!

I think that was all the goodies. We also have some balloons and a bouquet of carnations from our "Publisher's Clearing House Rep & Winner" as well as a very nice camera from Kristen- we'll see if she gets that back, wink wink!

Thanks to everyone who came- it was wonderful having you all!

We had a great time too! Wish I could have sampled some of your treats (besides the yummy cheese and Triscuits) but the spreak looked AWESOME!

You're welcome for the sugar cookies! Thanks for an epic party!

Love, Summer and Jake
