Best Costume Awards

in All Posts

There were quite a few funny costumes at Megan’s party – they are all deserving of an award!  There are two winners for the Most Difficult to Walk Through a Door award – my friend Joe (on the left):


And my friend Harry (on the right):


The Lamest Costumes of the Night award is also a tie between me and the Husband.  We were a sports team:


(Jillian and Bob fell through, as did Jim and Pam).  I did, however, get to walk around in sneakers and Recovery Socks, so it wasn’t all bad.


Most Romantic Couple goes to Meghann and Derek, AKA Cinderella and Prince Charming:


Most Hysterical Couple goes to Megan and Jason, AKA Little Bo Peep and her Sheep:


Most Career-Appropriate goes to Kelly (she’s an archaeologist and dressed up as Jane). But the Costume of the Night Award goes to Kelly’s boyfriend, Anthony, who dressed up as a FOOD BLOGGER! 


Not only did “Toni” wear running shorts and pigtails, but he carried around a tiny tray of food and took pictures of it.  He also asked me to put him on my blogroll multiple times.

And he rocked a Healthy Living Summit shirt:


‘Twas a fun party.  I wasn’t really in food blogger mood and didn’t document food/drink, but I ate a bowl of cereal and yogurt before we left for the party and chips and salsa, a cupcake, and Jello shots while we were there.  I also had a few beers.


Now, I’m awake and back on the Back on Track Month bandwagon.  When I declared Back on Track Month, I acknowledged that I’d be letting loose for some “special occasions,” namely Halloween and Nick’s 21st Birthday.  So, back to clean living, healthy living, and sound sleep.  🙂


Goals of the Day:


  • Grocery Shopping / Farmers’ Market
  • Clean the disaster that is my house
  • Some form of exercise
  • Figure out my bank account.  I’m pretty sure we overdrew this weekend. Ugh.
  • WRITE!!!!!!!!


Speaking of grocery shopping, my breakfast thus far has consisted of an Oh She Glows bar:


Because we seriously do not have a single piece of fruit in the house.  Must go shopping ASAP!

    Hey, Caitlin, I just want to give you a heads up that jello isn’t vegetarian, if you weren’t aware. Sorry if you already know and are okay with the ingredients — no judgment, just wanted you to know.
