best halloween weekend...ever!

ahoy. my fantastic weekend started when i was picked up for my ride to boston by this guy...
we arrived at bryce and kelly's where i parked it in front of the best appetizers ever (cream cheese, red pepper jelly and crackers and melba crackers with granny smith apples and cheddar cheese). we carved pumpkins across the street from their house at the bunker hill monument. it was 70 degrees outside with a warm breeze...



em and stew carved a laser kitty (there coupleness in carved pumpkin form)
we took a family photo on the steps...

we had perfect seats for the charlestown halloween parade and trick or treating extravaganza! this little guy was my favorite...

then we went to the guster concert at the orpheum (time split between the balcony and sixth row), which was the best. my throat hurt from singing.

throughout the night we saw some excellent costumes. here are a few of my favorites...

papa smurf...
jon gosselin...

a maine man with a built in beer holder...


i also loved tuck as will arnett/gob bluth, which required no costume. the night wrapped up with a sleepover at em and stew's!

yesterday morning o and i gained an hour, met jerz for brunch in beacon hill, hit up the trader joe's on route one, and had a pretty decent car radio sing-a-long (featuring danzig, somewhere over the rainbow, the black eyed peas, 311, kings of leon, bob marley, and insane in the membrane).

we arrived home in portland in time for a long walk along the eastern prom. we took a few staged senior portraits against a random 3 foot fence we found (what else was it for? you can't make a backdrop this good)...

and spotted two senior citizens wearing the exact shoes o was wearing. they don't call him old man for nothing!
we landed at flatbread for a quick drink before arriving home to the smell of yummy turkey chili. with it getting dark at 5 and all, we hunkered down for some chow and mad men.

this weekend allowed me to forget about all the work that lies ahead and just be. be silly. be a fan. be in the place where o and i remet. be with so many of my favorite people. be outside. and be ridiculously happy.

many thanks to kelly and emily who donated photos for this post! xoxo!

  2. Those old guys had the right idea. The shoes are both functional and stylish.
