Had our annual Halloween Party last night for the second year.  It was a blast, Kris and I went as Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein.  I have a few photos, but most of them were taken my a friend of mine.  So, I'll post more when I get them.  We go all out with the decorations.... and I made meat pies, 7-layer dip, home-made ranch dressing, peanut butter cup cupcakes, and some mean apple cider rum punch.

The pies, dip, cupcakes, and cider came from different issues of Everyday Food.

The amazing ranch dressing came from The Pioneer Woman.


On a different note, in the last two months I have had to leave places because my allergies had gotten so bad.  Since, its gotten to the point where I have actually had to leave and not hang out with my friends, I finally decided to get tested.

My right arm is mostly grasses.
Left arm.
I'm severely allergic to dust and oak, and literally allergic to everything they tested me for, except cockroaches.  So, I guess I can have a cockroach as a pet.  Yippee!  I'm now on allergy shots, a bunch of asthma medicine, and have my mattress and pillows covered in allergy proof slightly crunchy wrap.  It's a little depressing, but hopefully things will get better!
