Witch's Night Out....

...If you're looking for the Pink Saturday offering, it's one post down..However, if you're looking for some really fun "Witch's Night Out" photos and my....
"Ground-breaking-twice-in-a-day"
post (remember, that needs to be read really deep and loud...in your head..)

So, OK, I live in Utah. Center of the LDS universe. Love it here. I am a "recovering Catholic" (those Nun's can dish out a TON of guilt & fear) and I admire much of the LDS beliefs..but can't get my head around all of them..so I tell everyone I am "Mor-th-olic" - a combo of both ...
Anyway, back to the Witches....it's a BIG deal here- at Gardner Village (I've written about this place before) and women plan for this a YEAR in advance! I don't plan that far ahead for my life, no less a "Witch's" gathering!

My sweet supervisor, Sacha, invited me this year and together with Tamara, the Office Manager and Allison, Sacha's good friend., we had Mr. B drive us (virtually NO parking available that night..some parked like a mile away & walked!)

eating, music, eating, laughter,eating, a Witch's parade, contests, and so on. But mostly it's "Witch Watching" - seeing the elaborate costumes (at least I think they were costumes?!) . And when women get together with not thinking about being embarrassed in front of men- they seem to let loose - See the evidence below:



As you can probably tell, I was a "Kitchen-Witch" (not much "planning time" here..) and yes, I had a spatula, measuring spoons and a tomato corer hanging from my hat..


And, like the little kids that go Trick-or-Treating, we had to layer..it was going to be COLD outside...

Trying to feed Mr. B some of my "Bat-wing-snake-stomach-ear-of-wizard stew"...


Some of the Gardner Village Host-Witches....

"Song Sung Blue" or at least until we were blue in the face..


I thought the flour on my face would make people believe I really DO cook..


Witches were EveRyWheRe!!


On the grounds....

In the shops....






In the restaurant...

(Guess I should have gotten there a little earlier..the "Senior" witches eat at 4:30...)

This is Big-Scary-Guy who was TALL!! He's sitting down with me...but...

...here he is in all his tall-ness-glory!

This is pretty Tamara...she has the most gorgeous red-hair...no really..under that red wig!!


We are a trio of Hot Witches for sure! Allison sat this one out - she's preggers..that, or she had a pumpkin under her dress,,,,

Too beat to Boo....

Happy Haunting to all!
