I'm inspired to go crazy with Halloween decorations....

thanks to the fine example of our stellar neighbors, the Olson Family. Their house screams Halloween and literally makes me want to go trick or treating tonight! It's so much fun and Kim tells me people will literally stop and take pictures next to Halloween Scooby while trick or treating. The beauty of Halloween Scooby is that Kim bought him after Halloween a few years ago for $10 bucks...what a deal! Thanks, Olson's, for letting me blog about your decor. I hope to beef up our halloween decor during the clearance sales this year! For now, we just enjoy the spooky Halloween Wreath on our door. :D

Halloween Scooby in all his glory...

Don't you just love the killer hanging spider from the top, the scary hands on the doors, OH, and and the cob webs!

Like I said, here's our one decoration...a spooky wreath.

appy Halloween!

Regina Spektor, my new favorite artist

Regina Spektor is a russian-born singer-songwriter, pianist. She is awesome. Her music has this funky-folkish sound and I can't stop listening to her. She's eclectic and tells short stories with her music. Admittedly, I haven't always understood the stories at first but that's what I love about her music is figuring out the story she is trying to tell or the message she is trying to convey. She's been compared to Tori Amos and Fiona Apple.

Being that I have the best husband in the whole wide world, he walked to a record store one day last week in Downtown Portland to buy me her album: "Begin to Hope." It's freakin' sweet and I highly recommend you try it out. My fav songs on this album are Samson, Edit, and Fidelity.

Willow--if you're reading this, I think she may just be your new favorite too...her music reminds me of your style of music. Perhaps it's the whole Tori Amos thing?
