Orange & Black Halloween

I took some pictures this weekend that capture the colors of Halloween; orange and black. Harvest time is starting in October when things look orange everywhere due to pumpkins, autumn and leaves. This is where the orange is coming from. Black color refers to the festival of the dead and darkness which is a belief in Halloween. So this is where the black comes from. Regardless of the meanings of the colors, the combination of the two always reminds me one of my favorite holidays where I get to eat a lot of candies and chocolates like a kid :) I love Halloween...

Baby shower weekend

This Saturday I hosted one of my very close friend's baby shower in my house with the additional help and support of some other girlfriends that brought delicious home made food, treats and gifts for the party. The weather was extremely hot and so were the guests :) We all dressed up in costumes to celebrate the baby's first Halloween party even before he was born. The signature of the party ,besides the colorful costumes, was the boy oh boy cake from Sugar Butter Flour with banana and chocolate inside.

Here is me with my orangish red wig and the queen of the prince and the party...

The big 30

Yes, I finally hit the big 30 and I feel good. Taking the day off at work was one of my best decisions of yesterday. I wish I could also say the same thing for my choice of restaurant for dinner but overall I had a wonderful birthday spent with my dear husband.
I can not wait to see my friends this weekend and make a toast with them as well :) Here are bits of my birthday...

October, pumpkins and festivals

This weekend was a blast... After a few days of dark, rainy days of October, the sun has come out finally and we totally took full advantage of the heat by going outdoorsy. The first stop on Saturday was the October Fest followed by the Halfmoon Bay Pumpkin Festival.
