Halloween is a big deal at my company and we had a costume and a decorating contest. We also had a fabulous Italian themed potluck. As if I didn't eat too much at lunch we met Carolyn, Vince, and Ilaria for dinner at the Elephant Bar. Ilaria wore reversible pants (with candy corn on one side and stars on the other side) her grandmother made for her and she had a pretty yellow bow in her hair.
Picture #1: Ted, Ilaria, and Beth at dinner. This picture is out of order but I can't figure out how to put it at the end.
Pictures #2-5: Pictures of costumes and decorations at my office.
Picture #6: Carolyn and Ilaria with her adorable puppy dog coat.

My mom emailed me this picture of my dad today. I can't figure out how to make it larger so the proportions make the picture look funky. If you could view it in normal size you would be able to see it's a great picture of my dad taken backstage during his choral ensemble's concert last Saturday.

I'm not able to change the orientation of this picture so upside down it is. I procrastinated all weekend and did not get my class reading done. Fortunately it was a semi-quiet day at work today and I found time to read so my homework for Thursday is mostly complete. Even more fortunate for me, the reading for this Thursday's class is directly related to a current work project so I killed two birds with one stone. I love that!

We picked up Callie from the vet this morning and she has already reclaimed many of her favorite spots at home. When I went to get her from her cage at the vet there was a sign on her cage that said, "Killer Cat." I know Callie can be a little aggressive sometimes, but killer cat?!? That seems a bit much. On another bright note, our luggage was found and delivered to our house this morning. Thank you Northwest Airlines!

We flew back to California today. Fortunately all of our flights were smooth and we only had a slight delay with our flight from Raleigh to Detroit. Regardless of the delay we landed in Santa Barbara right on schedule. Unfortunately our luggage was not so lucky. When we arrived in Santa Barbara we learned our luggage had not arrived. After several calls to the airline it was determined no one knew where our luggage was. We filed a delayed luggage report and are hoping for the best.

It's our last day in North Carolina and we definitely had a full day. Ted and I took advantage of more beautiful weather and spent time at Reynolda Gardens this afternoon. After that we helped my parents prepare for a family dinner with Me-Maw, my sister, Quincy, and Quincy's parents. After dinner Ted and I went to Suzie and Quincy's house to meet their cat Zeus and their puppy Moka. We've had a great time visiting family and we are excited about going home, but it is always sad for me to say goodbye to my family.

Today we had beautiful North Carolina weather. The sun was shinning, the sky was blue, and the temperature was about 80 degrees. Perfect weather day. This morning Ted and I went for a walk at the Parcourse. For lunch my parents and I took Ted to Little Richard's for North Carolina style bar-b-que.
