Halloween costumes

Happy Halloween! Here's Todd and me, shortly before heading out for some trick-or-treating in the neighborhood. I'm dressed as a '50s sock hop girl, and Todd is, of all things... a knight! Punny, no? :-)

Pillow Fight

Had a progressive potluck dinner with our friends in Buellton. Here are Todd and JP, having a pillow fight in the living room of our last stop, Matt and Erin's house. Not sure who's winning...

Eyeball cupcake

Allan and I ate at the GoToCafe again today. In the spirit of Halloweek, they had "spooky" treats -- like this eyeball cupcake that Allan got.

Nail polish for this weekend

Just painted my fingernails, something I *rarely* ever do. But this is part of my Halloween costume, so Wet 'n' Wild polish in "Lady Luck" it is. Don't mind the poor self-manicure job!

Dinner table sign-- what's wrong here?

Couple weeks ago we had a 50s-themed fundraiser dinner for Todd's school. This was our table marker-- an old LP record with our names and table number. But look closely-- can you see what's wrong with it? (might have to click to enlarge photo)

Re-starting Project 365

As you can tell from the previous posts below, I attempted to start Project 365 (wherein I take and post a photo a day, every day, for a whole year) over 3 years ago. I managed to successfully post for nearly 2 months-- 59 photos in all. It wasn't a bad run, considering real life always got the better of me.

But things have changed and evolved since then. Rather than go through the hassle of taking a pic and then connecting my camera or phone to my computer, navigating to Blogger, uploading my photo and then posting, I can now use my smartphone. I found a decent Blogger app that allows me to easily post (and insert pictures!) from my phone.

So, I should have far fewer excuses now to not keep up with this every day. I'm still setting things up at the moment-- configuring the phone app, testing out Twitterfeed to post these blog updates to both my Twitter and Facebook. I'm excited about embarking upon this project again. Be sure to stay tuned! :-)
