A fancy bar oozing dreamy oceanic sensuality:
And then the highlight of the night, what we'd all been waiting for.
"You raised your flag up into my heart!"
I drove a sleepy van-load of people home in the wee hours, singing along to (you're not going to believe this) the janky old synthy 80's tunes of Y Kant Tori Read, yes, I'm serious. Felt like a rockstar waking up at noon to have my coffee.
Happy Wednesday world and I hope you are out there having adventures too!

I got to help through the entire process as she asked my favorite colors/styles, sent me fabric samples and then asked my preference for handles and length. What a seriously conscientious etsy seller. It was such a pleasure "collaborating" on this lovely creation.
Lauren even made me an extra little treat - this adorable sturdy little matching make-up bag:

Moving is not such a fun occassion to most people, and everyone was opposed (!) to me taking pictures. So these are really all I got to show the new home:
All the boys successfully moving in the PIANO, object of much exasperation when it comes to moving:
And of course, ultimately important in any Beatty home: the cats. Grabby and Owl immediately found safe hiding places in the tiny closet shelves and stayed firmly settled there until the chaos died down. I think they're going to love romping around in their new forest yard once they have full rule of the roost.
The best part of the day was when they took us out for delicious pizza and pitchers of Anchor Steam at the coolest local Roadhouse with the cutest waitresses and most amazing homemade jalapeno ranch dressing for dipping!

I mean, the books, the books alone!
See what I mean, Darin found a good one!
Zack and Sylvan were quick to dive into the old Jurassic Park play set.
SO....fun as it is, remind me not to do this again for a WHILE.

don't they all look lovely and haunting lit up!
I'll admit I was a tiny bit proud of this pert little cat-o-lantern that I whipped up.
posing with my creation:
our hilarious friend daniel trudeau tried to make a corporate advertisement jack-o-lantern and ended up accidentally creating our new favorite ridiculous slogan, MYSACE dot com.
right next to jorden's super spooky old tree.let the JUDGING begin!jorden announces the winners in front of the chilling display. the tribal art bird is darin's.
they even had rad prizes for the winners!
brittany won this rather creepy stuffed frankenstein stand up doll. the whole cozy scene:apparently some SORE LOSERS had to get all destructive by smashing their pumpkins.for which dakota was none too pleased! standing guard over the poor broken pumpkin...jorden and becky even gave out beautiful apples from our own dear apple hill as consolation prizes for all participants. addie poses with sweet dakota.
it was a perfect october evening that ended with a nice fire and stories round the backyard chiminea. the kind of night that makes me so grateful (once again) for the most amazing, sweet, dorky, joyful group of friends!
