Catching Up

During my visit to the Geek Squad at Best Buy last Saturday, I found out my computer had contracted a horrible virus and has a damaged hard drive.  They've been nursing it back to health ever since.  In the meantime, lots has been going on!

We had a great Halloween weekend.  I went to a party on Friday night at Emmylou's boyfriend, Jason's, parents' barn.  Brooke was my date for the evening, and you can see our uninspired costumes below:

Black Cat and Bumble Bee
And the Swamp People came to the party:

Jason and Emmylou
The next night I had a fun Mexican dinner with Brooke and Kelly and then we saw The Ides of March.  The Ides of March kept us on the edge of our seats.  George Clooney and Ryan Gosling definitely didn't let us down.  All three of us would highly recommend it.

On Sunday, we had lunch at the Ellises.  David's Aunt Nancy was in town to visit Jack and Olive, so she had lunch with us too!  It was great to see her.  David wrapped up the weekend on Sunday night by preparing the most delicious chicken and sausage gumbo you've ever tasted.  He combined Emeril Lagasse's recipe with his Uncle Dave's.  It's too complicated for me to type, so you'll have to ask him for the recipe if you're interested :)  He even made his own roux.

The Chef Himself
Last week was a busy work week, and we welcomed November with a trip to Starkville on Friday.  On Friday night, David and I had dinner at Anthony's in West Point, Mississippi (20 minutes from Starkville).  It was fabulous!  If you love stuffed mushrooms, this is the place for you.  For more information, see their website:

After dinner, we visited Ashley and Andrew Shapley and met their 2 month old son, Weston, for the first time.  He was adorable!  Andrew, Ashley, and Weston just moved back to Mississippi, and we're so glad we will get to see them more often.

On Saturday, we had a fun day of tailgating before MSU played UT Martin.

We ran into David's cousin, Egan!  Egan is a sophomore at MSU.

Yesterday was truly a day of rest.  It was nice to have some down time so we will have plenty of energy for the holiday season.  We're looking forward to a trip to Savannah this weekend for my much older brother's 30th birthday!  Hope you have a great week :)
