Neighborhood Shenanigans

ETA: Listgirl Designs is now open! Go and check it out. :) I will post more about it Nov. 1st.

This morning we watched the Buckeyes totally demolish the New Mexico State Aggies 45-0. Yea, it was a beating. :| The next few games won't be so easy though: Penn State, Iowa, and then our rivals Michigan.

In the evening, after I got my store up and running and sent out the newsletter, Todd and I made the long trek across the street to our neighbor Tyler's house for his Halloween party. Our other neighbors Mel and Margaret were there, but other than them, we didn't know anyone else. Tyler had some friends help him decorate his house starting at 11am, and it looked awesome!

Todd made some homemade Caramel Popcorn and brought it to the party.
It was REALLY delicious! This is one of Todd's party treat specialties. I've linked the recipe above. You can make it and put it in tins as a holiday treat gift too!

Here's Todd and Tyler.  Can you guess what Tyler was?

Our neighbors Margaret and Mel.
They are such fun people! Mel plays in a band too, and they invited us to go dancing to Motown music with them sometime. Doesn't that sound like fun?

Mel and Todd.

And me, in my not-so-creative banana costume, and Todd as Cat in the Hat.

You see, a couple years ago I was the banana, and Todd had a monkey costume. So at least then we had a theme going. Then this year, I was going to still be the banana, and Todd was going to get an apple costume. But he deviated from the plan and decided to finally be Cat in the Hat. So that's why we had un-matching costumes. :| The banana suit was totally non-breathable and I got quite warm in it. One party goer made a joke and said, "how do we peel you?" :| I just ignored the comment and ran away. I'm not so good with the quick-witted comebacks!
