Sorry no Halloween pictures to share this year. Since Halloween fell on a Friday for the first time in a loooooong time, Holly went to spend the holiday with her mom.

Larry had gotten free tickets from one of his vendors for us to go to the Craftsman's Truck races at the Texas Motor Speedway. We had been looking forward to going for a few weeks. But when Larry got home, we were tempted to go a different rout with our plans. Larry was planning on leaving late that night or this morning to go to East Texas for opening weekend for hunting, cutting our first weekend alone in a while very short. This disappointed us both, but we both want to make sure he gets his money's worth out of his hunting license and his gear. So instead we spent the evening going out to dinner at IHOP (we had the T.V. on while we were making up our minds to go to the races or not and an advertisement came on for there). We had the restaurant almost completely to ourselves. I think there were at most 5 other tables of people. We then went to Walmart to see about buying a movie to watch but ended up renting a couple from Redbox. So we went home and vegged out and just spent some nice time together. I enjoyed getting a whole evening talking with him with minimal interruptions.

Well Larry just left and I'm off to spend some time with a friend I haven't seen in a while and then home to do laundry, and sew for a while. And go to sleep watching chic flicks with no one sighing over how ridiculous they are. :)

Hope everyone enjoys the first day of November (can you believe it's practically hot outside?!).

I've got to make sure I hit an IHOP while I'm on this side of the Pacific, I've seen one around here somewhere! Sometimes the best "dates" are the ones you spend at home with your honey! Would you email me your address? I want to make sure I have the right one...

Hey hunny. I am so glad that you had a great weekend. It is nice just to be able to spend time with our guy. Its even nicer to spend time with yourself sometimes. :-)

I spent all day Saturday and Sunday in comfy clothes on the couch watching movies. I watched two of the three Lord of the Rings movies on Sunday. So nice.

AND A.D. kept Lorelli Sunday night so I didn't have to wake up early this morning. And she got extra time with her daddy. That was awesome.
