Our Light Was On!

After work I had a great 20 minute massage, deep tissue, and much needed. It was a good pain, if you know what I mean. I left feeling refreshed and relaxed. Afterward, I was on to the house to make some dinner and wait for the kiddos.

When I walked up to the door I saw our beautiful little pumpkin all lit up.

Hubby and I decided to stay home and hand out treats to the trick-or-treaters and we were the ONLY ones with the lights on, on our block. So we had TWO kids come to our house, now what do we do with all the leftover candy!!! Well at least dinner was fabulous:) We made some homemade pizza, well almost all homemade.

We bought a three pack pizza kit at Costco, and made it tonight. I think that homemade pizza is the perfect pre-race dinner. It has a well balanced amount of protein, complex carbs, fats and plenty of veggies. The kit comes with a whole wheat crust, and pizza sauce. I don't put cheese on mine because it hurts my tummy. So I made it a his and hers pizza. Half bbq chicken with tomatoes Annie's BBQ Sauce (I love this stuff!), red and yellow peppers. The other half was a chicken parm with mozz cheese, marinara, and chicken. It was yummy.. I wanted to eat it right off the rack! I added some salad to the side as well.
As you can see we need a pizza pan!

Well, we waited we watched the Food Network's Haunted Gingerbread House Challenge, so fun. We waited and waited...played with Bosco, and waited no luck with the kiddos, so now we have all of this candy in our house and I am leaving for the weekend I better hide it from the hubby...lol...

Our front door with NO kids...:(

Off to bed, a very early Halloween night. Hope it pays off tomorrow morning!

Your dog is SOOO adorable!
And I am so jealous at the Reese's picture! We don't have them here in Europe but I did get a taste of them when I was visiting the US military bases in Germany

That's a great looking pumpkin and a wicked good pizza! You're going to need to come up with some kind of book or something "Meals for Runners." There you go I did my part now you do the rest.

We didn't get many kiddos either. So sad.

The pizza looks delicious and Bosco looks adorable.

Sorry you didn't get many Trick or Treaters - so disappointing. I think you can donate your candy if you're interested.

Luckily, this year we didn't have too much candy left over. I usually buy way too much.

The pictures are great. I really like the color of your living room.
