Had such a blast for our UFC 207 fight party. We invited a bunch of people from the gym and another from the gym catered the party. We also invited some family. Fun nite. Fun nite which included good eats+ sangria (made in the heirloom punch bowl that was just passed down to me) and whole strawberries soaked in vodka. Fun nite ha? Well.. what made it even more fun? Nunes rocked Rousey like the beast she is.
We had a good Thanksgiving dinner. I had the guys make farolitos and we made a fire, so it was cozy. I love candles and had 50+ strewn about the living room. They highlighted my mythology table, dragonology table and wizard corner. I made some cute center pieces that were easy to make. We all contributed food, but I made an orange and honey glazed ham, bacon corn, honey glazed carrots, sweet potatoes with candied pecans, Jim Beam honey bourbon apple cider with cinnamon sticks, a smoked oyster and cheese platter, and toasted pistachio pudding. I think the pudding was a big hit. I had Mike torch it so the marshmellows, sliced almonds and turbinado sugar got toasted up. That was good!
Chest pumped from the bench. Stilettos lookin’ long and evil. Now I’m gonna get ready to become the Enchantress for tonight’s party with the gym peeps. I bought a Captain Morgan pumpkin spiced rum bomb and Coke Zero. I’m gonna try not to drink that much so I’ll feel good and don’t have to drag my ass to the gym tomorrow.
I had a non-stop, super busy day. I got up, changed the bedding, cleaned the litter box, did the dishes, fed the boy, sorted and took a shit load of recycling to the station, scrubbed the shower, took a shower, hit chest hard at the gym, ran a mile, killed my abs, hit the stores, cooked dinny, cut my puppy’s nails, gave my puppy a bath, cleaned out my puppy’s tent, then hit work on my cosplay.
I also worked on my hair piece for Carmen’s Dia de Los Muertos birthday party! I scored some gems that I’ll tack on with spirit gum. I’m going purple with spiders for this masquerade. Never painted up this type of mask, but it should look deadly! Now I’m in bed and I’m gonna watch “Lights Out” with my boy. He’s gonna freak! For tonight, I’m La Muerta after a long day of work!
