Bubble Bubble Toil & Trouble

It is 
The Most WOnDErFuL Time of the YEar!
All Hallows Eve!
A few weeks ago I held the fourth annual
I was a fun party with AMAZING witches!

Bette was invited and got all dressed up in a witch costume..

The Queen of Halloween flew her broom north for the night.
Whivi(Viv's Witches name)was in attendance and looked FABULOUS!
I was so glad she made it north for the event!

All in all there were about 28 witches...

Plus a few inanimate ones...
The Cheetah-licious witch was the inspiration for my costume.

Margie is not only just a girl... she's just a witch as well.

 There were Ballerina witches.
This pink haired witch might look a little familiar...
It's Vanessa!

 There were neighborhood witches...

School witches...

 Sassy Diva witches...

 Masquerading witches...

 Cute smiling witches...

 Glamour witches...

And amazingly VOGUE witches...

 Here is a little collage Margie put together of some of the sights and tastes of the witchy soiree...
It was a fantastic party and I just can't wait for next year's Witches' Brew!
It is my very most favorite part of HaLlOWeEn!

New York

Last month Caylor and I had the most amazing opportunity!
We were asked to go to the US Open in New York.
I haven't really ever followed tennis...
but I was about to experience something great!

It was perfect timing too...
We would be spending Caylor's birthday in
the city that never sleeps.

I know I didn't sleep... I was up and at' em early the second morning...
I walked down to the Today Show,
and visited the Top of the Rock.
Caylor could have cared less about seeing Matt Lauer,
so he slept in. 
It was kindof cool to just walk down the street
in Manhattan alone.

Top of the Rock

Friday night we went to a comedy club called The Comedy Cellar.
It was hilarious!  Judah Friedlander, the weird hairy guy from 30 Rock was doing stand up.  He was FUNNY! 
He had a shirt on that said, "Champion of the World"
I know what to get Caylor for Christmas
Saturday Morning we we off to the US Open.
As we walked in we knew we were in for an amazing experience!
The celebs were there in full force.
Justin Timberlake was in a suite a few down from ours.
We were totally gawking at stars like Catherine Zeta- Jones, Michael Douglass, Stanley Tucci, Ben Stiller, P. Diddy, Al Roker, and Mathew Perry.  Not to mention the amazing athletes! 
The greatest treat was when the door opened and John McEnroe walked into our Suite.
He was absolutely darling!
He gave us his opinions on what we were going to see,
predicted what would happen and answered any questions we might have.  He even joked about a rumor that he had a bad temper.

He signed tennis balls for us all and really just hung out for about 30 minutes.  It was so fun!
We were there for the Men's Semi-Final matches. 
It was an all day event... I loved it!

The next day Caylor and I hung out at Central Park.
It was so beautiful!  We had an amazing time. 

We were there on 9/11 and it was surreal! There was a heightened terror alert so there were many police and military in the city.
All large cars were searched and there were actually military soldiers WITH guns in the street. 
On Friday We walked 10,000 miles around the city.
We went down to the 9/11 Memorial.  We really couldn't see anything because it didn't open until the following Sunday, 9/11.
There were many police officer bag pipe bands down around ground Zero on the day we were there.  It was interesting to see them all in their different kilt uniforms.

I really wanted to tour the Statue of Libery and Ellis Island, but we ran out of time.  NEXT TIME FOR SURE!

This was an amazing experience.  I can't wait to go back!
