Although Halloween was quite some time ago, I thought it would be nice to talk about the weekend I had with my mom and my sister and of course, our awesome Halloween.
Over Halloween weekend, my mom and my sister came down to Columbia to visit. They arrived on Friday night and we had pizza and wings, a tradition for fall in the our family since my dad goes to my high school's football games every Friday. We sat and talked (shock I know) and watched wedding shows (another shock).
Saturday was filled with a trip to the Riverbanks Zoo. It is a must if you ever find yourself in Columbia. The zoo is on the smaller side, but it is kept up very well and is perfect for going to for the day. The weather was beautiful, the sun was shining and although it was a little chilly with the wind, with a windbreaker there was not a problem. It has been YEARS since I have been to this zoo so it was like seeing it for the first time again :)
Here are some of my favorite exhibits:
|Grizzly Bear, he was HUGE|
|Up close and personal|
|Flamingos....they smelled awful|
These monkeys were so LOUD!
So for future reference, there is a tram stop in the middle of the zoo that you can ride to take up to the gardens and back down which is what we did.
We had a GREAT day and ended it by making beef fajitas with chips and guacamole. Delish.
|Note the festive chili pepper serving dishes!|
After class on Halloween, I drove up to Charlotte to spend Halloween with my sister. We went over to my Aunt's house to trick or treat which was awesome, they have a lot more kids in their neighborhood then we do.
This year I decided to be Flo from Progressive. I borrowed an apron and a Progressive bag from one of my mom's coworkers, used a button down of my dad's and just wore my khakis. It was an awesome costume if I do say so myself....what do you think?

|Had to have the Flo hair bump!|
|OMG Phineus and Ferb Pumpkins!|

You're missing the whole point of Halloween. Free candy?
