Our TACOBERFEST went until after midnight and I could have stayed up longer!!

I love having people over, it seriously made my whole week. I know for some people throwing parties is such a hassle, but if you keep it casual and don’t worry about the details it is so worth it in the end!

Slept in late this morning :) Time to hit the gym, I have my long 15 mile run tomorrow so I will be just doing some weights and lot’s of stretching today. We also have a HALLOWEEN HAT PARTY, I need to find a crazy hat!!!

Any ideas???

Happy Halloween!

TacoOberfest looks like it was a lot of fun. The fish tacos look amazingly delicious! The hat party sounds like a cute idea but I've got no suggestions, sorry.

What a BOO-tiful day! Funny hats; In-N-Out gives away those paper hats they wear at work free. Just ask at the drive thru! There's also Hobo's Vintage in Downtown Redlands that may have something funny?

Hey Bobbi, new to the blog through POTM, and happy I found you! You guys look like you had a great night.

I don't want you to take this the wrong way, but that fish is not halibut. I worked in a fish market for 2 years and that is tilapia. I am not sure if it was mislabeled at the market or what happened, but halibut is a much more expensive fish and I wanted to make sure you were not getting ripped off! Again, please don't take this comment the wrong way, just trying to help a girl out.

Your Pumpkin and Chocolate Chip Muffins look delish - but you don't seem to list any pumpkin in the ingredients?
