My Week in Pictures

10-31-12 Halloween 2012
1. We had some huge pumpkins to carve this year and they yielded a ridiculous amount of pumpkin seeds! I roasted four different batches with various seasonings: cinnamon and sugar; just salt; salt and curry powder; and salt, pepper, garlic powder, cayenne pepper and paprika. The last recipe -- which was very tasty -- was suggested to us by the lady who rang up our purchases at the pumpkin patch.

2. Happy Halloween! I love our pumpkins this year. I posted more pictures here.

3. Poor Conan got forced into his Super Dog costume again this year. I felt a bit bad for him, but the little trick-or-treaters love it.

4. I mailed in my absentee ballot this week. Honestly, I don't like either presidential candidate and really didn't want to vote, but it's one of my goals to say I've voted in every presidential election for which I was eligible.

5. We had a delicious dinner tonight at one of my favorite restaurants on Oahu, La Tour Cafe. I got an Italian sandwich, salad and French onion soup, and we split a basket of fries. Yummm.

6. After dinner, we went shopping at the Pearl Harbor Navy Exchange and I went a bit crazy -- I now have three new winter coats! The one in the picture is my favorite -- it has an adorable ruffle that you can't really see in the tiny photo. It's Guess brand and I got it for just $70! Maybe knowing that I have an awesome new coat (or three) to bundle up in will make our move to Ohio this winter a bit easier.

7. This didn't make the photo collage, but we went to see "Argo" last night and it was great! I love Ben Affleck, and I really enjoyed how, as director, he managed to create tension and edge-of-your-seat moments even though we already knew how the based-on-a-true-story movie was going to end.
