"What's for supper?" my children ask me.  At 7:00 in the morning.  As they are munching their breakfasts.

Okay, #1, why are you asking me about something that won't happen for another 12 hours?, and #2, and this is really more to the point, Didn't I just make supper last night?  Like, oh my gosh, 12 hours ago?!?!?  It's like we're on some kind of repetitive cycle here.

My original title for the post was How to Throw the Perfect Halloween Party!  And then I thought, "Too magazine-y.  Why don't I just include How to Lose 10 lbs. Eating Halloween Candy Sprinkled with Stevia while I'm at it?"  And while I'm a competant, fairly confident Halloween hostess, perfect may be stretching my party cred too thin.  Hey - Can I lost weight if I stretch my cred?

Well of course there were going to be PUMPKINS! 


Permanent ones!  I love this painted ceramic jack-o-lantern that I got at H.E.B.  I love it so much, I bought it a little brother.  I call the big one Doreen, and the little one Pablo.  I’m just kidding, I don’t call them anything, they’re jack-o-lanterns.  But seriously, this pumpkin gives me sooo much joy.  Let’s not dissect it, sometimes it’s the litt...
