The Gingerbread Diaries

If you’ve been curious about what things look like in the Dollhouse, now, here’s your chance to take a peek!

The upstairs still needs work–namely our bedroom and Todd’s office, and we need some better storage up on the landing/in the upstairs bath, but otherwise we’re more than just functionally unpacked in the house, we’re ready to party! And party we did with a couple dozen friends. The Dollhouse is perfect for entertaining, even in this “before” state–imagine what it’ll be like once we get it all fixed up. I joked to Todd that each room we finish will call for it’s own “unveiling” party.

I hope everyone has a Happy Halloween! We’re curious to see how many trick-or-treaters we get this evening. Hopefully enough to make a serious dent in the planter full of candy we have ready and waiting. Maybe we’ll get to meet some more of our neighbors, too!

UPDATE: I usually dress up for Halloween at work but this year I was sort of uninspired. But I didn’t want to skip it, so I figured I’d just grab the chef’s coat I use for conventions and go as a chef (and kinda kicked myself for not getting an appropriate wig sooner, because I could have gone as Red from OITNB). But then a funny thing happened. I was planning to just put my hair up in piggie-buns but teased them first so I wouldn’t look like I had giraffe nubs. Mid-tease I thought ‘heh, I sorta look like a Fraggle.’ Then my brain really kicked in and reminded me that said Fraggle was ALSO named Red!

So I present to you: Fraggle is the New Black


UPDATE #2: Oh, hey, a story from last weekend’s Halloween party is over on Bye, Bye Pie today. Did you ever wonder if the Dollhouse is haunted?
