I woke up this morning to an angry email from Brianne demanding to know "why the hell" I hadn't shared with you all the story of our annual date, which happened yesterday. Brianne and I go on a very important date every October, date selected weeks in advance, wherein we walk the ten minutes to Starbucks, arm-in-arm, and purchase pumpkin-flavored treats.

We dress up for this event. It's our favorite thing that happens all year. It is the most important thing we have going on in our lives. And I failed to mention it anywhere on the Internet. So I hereby do so in hopes that I do not end up dead by the end of the day.

And now, your Pictures & Distractions:

Autumn in Utah.

We made Ollie and Duncan try on a black wig. They had mixed feelings.


Not possible to get a non-blurry picture of these two together.

I don't even know.

Crap to distract you from whatever you're supposed to be doing:

An anthem to tofu. Thanks, Sarah.

A very important collection of watches. Thanks, MariLee.

What not to do in a foreign country. Thanks, Michelle.

I'm movin' on. Thanks, Skylar.
