Hope you all had a happy and fun Halloween last night!  Now it's Friday and here's what I have to "high five" about:
1. I learned how to do electrical work this week!  I rewired switches and installed them into our dining room!

2. This is Shadow.  On Tuesday, I was on my nightly run around the neighborhood, and basically, she scared the shit out of me.  I was turning a corner, and she jumped out from under a gap in a row of bushes.  She was so friendly and just stood there on her hind legs, staring at me.  Of course, I had to call Mike and have him bring me cat food for her.  After about a half hour of hanging out with her, I decided to continue on my run, and she followed me all the way around the block and back into our driveway.  We think she's a stray, so she lived in our garage for a night and now is at the Protectors of Animals to get checked out.  I'm thinking and hoping we might have a little addition to our family soon!

3.  Mike chose this amazing new Yankee Candle when we went to the mall this week!

4. Yesterday morning, my mom sent me a couple of photos of me from 20 Halloweens ago when I was a bride!  Yaaayy for brides and weddings ;)

5.  My pride and joy as Cowgirl Jessie.  Yes, I dressed Roxy up to match our Halloween theme.  I am soooo lucky to have a fiancee who puts up with my obsession of costume-wearing loves it too!  You might have seen yesterday from my race recap, we were Woody and Buzz for Halloween.  We might have gone to Petsmart to buy a litter box for Shadow on Tuesday and I might have seen a Jessie costume.  Then, I might have regretted not buying it all day Thursday so I might have rushed there after work to buy it.  No matter what happened, all that's important is that Roxy is the best.  She was such a good sport!  
Because those little snippets of Halloween definitely aren't enough, here are a few more from yesterday:
I love how my coworkers dress up with me every year.  One was our boss and the other was a dentist. 

Do you like my foot personalization and pullstring?

I love that Roxy (and Mike!) allowed you to dress her up, and that your costumes had a theme! Thank you for linking up!

That is so fun that you were a bride for Halloween twenty years ago! And I'm dying over the cute Roxy pictures. She is so cute! And so awesome that you found a costume to match yours and Mikes! Aaahhh!

And I hope that Shadow is a keeper! *keeping fingers crossed for you!*

From the very first picture, I thought, "Is that a cat Jessie costume??" That's too funny that you actually found a cat costume to match the theme you had going. Toy Story is, in my opinion, the best cartoon movie of all time...
