Still Halloween!

I got to be Cleopatra this weekend -I love Halloween! That was Friday. Today, on the actual holiday I made some halloween cupcakes to bring to work tomorrow (yum pumpkin with maple cream cheese frosting) and ate mini-candies while I handed them out to the few trick-or-treaters who came to the door.

The recipe was from Smitten Kitchen and it turned out delicious - light and not too sweet. Next time I would cut back on the cream cheese in the frosting - it made way too much and I didn't make the lovely roses in the original recipe. Hope my co-workers like them! Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

It's my favorite time of year again (even with the freakishly warm weather we had here in the Northeast for the past few days). I've been walking around enjoying the beautiful colors of Fall and the crunch and rustle of leaves under my feet. This time of year means celebration to me (maybe some lingering Druidism in my DNA?) - lots of time spent crafting costumes and decorating the apartment, planning dinners and birthday drinks.

I'm going to a costume party tonight as Cleopatra (circa 1963, Elizabeth Taylor), and I can't wait to get dressed up! Hopefully there will be more festivities this weekend, but I'm winging it a bit this year.

I'll have more updates from this weekend and next weeks parties (next week is the retro cocktail hour and dinner party for my birthday)! Coming soon - hat progress for my next show!
