This is what happens with these weekend recap posts…I edit all the photos at once and then start blogging. I usually get through Friday and part of Saturday and then decide that’s enough for one post. So here I am with the second half of my weekend.
I threw a costume together at the last minute for a really cool party that I was invited to. One of my friends is an artist and is sharing studio space with five other artists/photographers/etc at Flaming Chicken Studio.
The event was half costume party and half gallery show. Many of the artists had their work on display. Most of them shoot with film and use old/antique cameras. It was interesting to walk around and see it all and also cool that many of them were shooting during the party…there were like mini photo-shoots going on all over the place.
They went all out with a smoke machine, belly dancers and ariel silk performances. It was probably the most unique Halloween party that I’ve ever attended. I can’t say that my last-minute princess getup was winning any creativity points with this crowd! 🙂
I had to turn into a pumpkin a little after 11 at the party because I teach hot class on Sunday mornings. I came home after class and made brunch. Omelet made with farm fresh eggs, arugula, avocado, sundried tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms and feta, pear slices and turkey bacon. I also had a slice of apple cake for dessert.
I spent ALL afternoon cleaning and then went on a little three mile run. I had a small gathering to attend Sunday evening so I took my apple cake (in the right corner) and whipped up some beet dip using the plethora of roasted beets in my fridge. Beet dip…ehhhhh.
Dinner when I got home was pad thai with lots of tofu. Mixed veggies on the side.
And the most exciting news! Remember when I was an extra on Homeland? Well, the episode aired last night and I actually made it on screen for a few fleeting seconds. I was in the yoga class and also on the street after class. Fun! 🙂
Did you/are you going to dress up for Halloween this year?
