Trick or Treat Brownies

Where we live, I'm guessing we won't be getting any trick-or-treaters. So I decided to treat my co-workers to some candy-corn brownies. They were super sweet but that's what treats are supposed to be like right?

Laguna Nigel (Biotech?)

This year, I was officially invited as Greg's "honored guest" during his company's annual Biotech Conference. Let's just say I had no complaints about the Ritz-Carlton in Laguna Nigel. The weather was perfectly warm and you can't get any better than "all-expenses paid"!

Saturday night we had a western-themed dinner and I got to wear my pink cowgirl hat! I thought my outfit was the best until I saw Giovanni in his Indian head-dress. Oh well, maybe next year I'll get more creative too. (The Indian, the cowgirl and...the Mexican?)

Sunday night was the formal ball and here's the happy couple all dressed up! I can't WAIT until next year! (If I'm invited again...)
