Halloween weekend

Hi friends!  Hope it was a great weekend for everyone!  Friday night we celebrated Halloween at our friend Eric and Nicole's house.  Nicole seriously went above and beyond with an amazing party and officially wears the hat of Hostess With The Mostess. 

Caramel Apple Station - yum!

Rum punch with dry ice, delicious

Jello shots in syringes - genius idea!

Nick was a Guitar Hero player and I channeled my inner blonde as Alice In Wonderland.  It's hard to tell in this picture, but I did a great eyeliner job on Nick to complete the rocker look.

Saturday we had an exciting (but rain) Husky football game against #7 ranked Oregon State University - and we won!  Students rushed the field, we were all screaming and it was a great day to be a Husky!

Fall cooking fun

Hope everyone is having a great week so far! I've been enjoying doing some fall cooking and wanted to share some of my faves!

Butternut squash mac and cheese
This is from a great cooking website called How Sweet It Is and I found it via Pintrest of course!  It's really good and fairly healthy, you're getting your mac and cheese fix with veggies!

Ina Garten's Italian Wedding Soup                 
Soup staple in our household - I love this soup so much!  I made it for the first time this season and I know I'll be making it again soon.  The chicken meatballs are so good I could eat them just by themselves!

Ina Garten Cream Of Fresh Tomato Soup
Ina does it again!  I actually make this one without the cream and I think it's just as good without.  And when I can't get fresh tomatoes I just get good canned ones.

Also, my blog friend and fellow Seattlite, Ashley, had me as a Travel Tidbits and Tips guest poster on her awesome blog!  She recently got married in Mexico and honeymooned in Belize, her pictures are amazing!  Check out my guest post and her fun travel blog!

my fave travel buddy! :)

Fall catch-up

Hello friends!  Since Nick and I have been back from our trip our past couple of wedding have been busy with fun events!  We were down in Olympia, WA for our friend Holly and Brent's wedding that I was a bridesmaid in, and then to our friend Jessie and Peter's wedding in Yakima, Wa!  (I'll have to post about those soon - they were both beautiful!)

Last weekend/week we had fantastic weather here in Seattle, Nick and I got a workout canoeing and got to hang out with my friends Courtney and Ivy and their adorable dogs (three girls and four malti-poos)!  Mom and dad took us out to Wild Ginger on Tuesday, we did a surprise bday dinner for Meghan, and dinner at Terra Plata with Meghan and Brynn!

tried to get a picture with all four - three was the best we could do

This past weekend was full of tailgating and football!  Looking forward to a great week ahead!

I love the Huskies!
