I mean, it doesn’t really get much more Halloween-y than a classic Hitchcock scream, amiright? We’re big fans of this holiday around these parts — there’s just something so fun about listening to eerie surf-rock, watching spooky flicks, getting all dressed up, and eating so much candy that you feel like a kid again. Are you guys getting into the spirit? We wanna know what your costumes are! Here’s to a bitchin’ Halloween weekend, and let’s all hope no one gets stabbed in the shower like that chick up there *points up*. Too much?? 🙂

Ello! How’s everyone’s week been? Mine somehow became much busier than anticipated,   but that’s not always such a terrible thing, because it flew by. I get to head home to Connecticut tonight so I can spend the weekend with the family for Mother’s Day. Our family tradition for this holiday is to do weeding in the yard for Mom (leave to to my mother to put us through manual labor!), and eat a lot. We’ll be going to our old-time family favorite Italian restaurant for lunch with my Dad, Sister and Brother-in-law on Sunday, so it should be a well-rounded time.

Hope you all have the chance to get out there are appreciate any mother in your lives – have a great weekend everyone!
