Happy Halloween!

Rob and I hosted a little Halloween get together tonight, and had such a good time. After living in Alabama for about a year and a half now, it's taken some time for us to find a group of friends. We both have wonderful co-workers, but neither of us tend to hang out with any of them outside of work.

Over the summer, we became friends with a girl who lives in our neighborhood-- we bought a new grill and we posted on our neighborhood board that we were giving away our old one. She responded. The day she came to pick it up, we got into a conversation about trivia and she invited us to come to a weekly trivia game with her. A few weeks later, we went and met some really great people. We've been going every Tuesday night ever since, but have never gotten together on any other night.

So, we invited everyone over for some chili, beer, games and scary movies. We never made it to the scary movie part, but we had a hell of a time eating, drinking & playing Scattergories. It was nice to have the house full of friends.

Plus, in a true Halloween tradition, it gave me an excuse to make my favorite creepy cupcakes:

Happy Halloween, Everyone!
