45/52: Halloween Weekend in West Seattle

Last Thursday night, I arrived in Seattle for the Halloween weekend!

Brian and I had drinks and dinner at The Lodge, just down the street from the Amtrak Station using a Living Social coupon that is set to expire this week!  We got $30 of food and drink for $15, so not a bad way to cut down on the bill.

Friday was a quiet day at home!  Thank you Serena at Chill Massage for an amazing 60 minute therapy massage.  I then made a huge batch of crockpot chili for dinner and it was nice to spend a Friday evening with Brian who had to work downtown this week.

Saturday kicked off the Official Holiday Season!  The day was dark and wet, with a bit of clearing at dusk.  We carved our pumpkin for the front porch, lit candles and set the mood for our little Halloween party complete with a spooky mix of music and Halloween sounds ranging from howling ghosts and scary winds to murmuring mummies and creaking crypt doors!

After some wine and passing out candy to 31 kiddies, we made our traditional Halloween pizzas then dove straight into the leftover candy!  

Sunday was an Italian feast and Seahawk football at my Mom and Kenny's.  Brian made a wonderful lasagna from scratch and Mom and Kenny made salad and bread.  A magnificent way to end the weekend!

How was your Halloween weekend?
