Flashback Friday – Halloween

My cat is still warming up to this place.IMG_2816

But, I don’t think he’ll ever warm up to me sticking the camera in his face all the time. Too bad.


Before I left for an afternoon class and errands I had a yogurt. I used to love these, but I don’t like them as much any more. 


I hit up Whole Foods for some lunch before my appointment this afternoon. It’s right next door to my hair salon :). 


I got a pumpkin scone for lunch dessert. The frosting was the best part of this. When I gave Ben a bite he said “Oh, you got this from a health food store.”


And my obsession: a detox juice. I cannot get enough.


Then, it was time for my appointment! Before picture:


Wanna see the after? Maybe later.

I bought some good bread for dinner. I have been craving really good, chewy bread and poured over all the different kinds in the Bakery section of WF for the longest time. I would pick one loaf up and examine it only to have another one catch my eye.

Finally I settled on a Fig loaf from La Brea Bakery. It’s a seasonal pick and I’m a sucker for those.


We ate individual pizzas, cheese, bread, grapes and carrot sticks for dinner. Exactly what I wanted.

IMG_2853 When it comes to good bread my “fullness meter” doesn’t register. I can eat this stuff forever (and often do).

And some much needed wine. I really need wine this week, but I have a long-ish run planned for tomorrow morning. I’ll see if this was a complete mistake and let ya know.IMG_2855

    Love the hair girl! It matches your wine. :)

    I really like the full fat version of that yogurt. I’ve never had the nonfat but the full fat tastes extremely incredible.

    I love the penguin costume. And the look on your face is adorable!! The Wondar Woman costume is pretty awesome too!

    Fig bread? That would be amazing. I love your dinner spread. It looks perfect!!

    Your hair is so beautiful!

    I love the Halloween flashback. I was pretty much the same thing every year and there aren’t many pictures, but it’s still fun!

    Love the hair Monica!!!! :)

    My costumes aren’t nearly as impressive as yours. I was a baby 4 years in a row just so I could wear my pjs all day.

    I am amazed you have all those pictures from your childhood. I am going to have to see what I can dig up. I do remember being punky brewster one year, but my costumes were no where as cool as yours.
