Yesterday was a whirl wind fun filled day. It began at Santa Anita in the afternoon with a day of horse racing, amazing food and a few wheat beers. It ended with a night of screaming men chasing me with chain saws.
It was an extremely hot fall day and I would like to, I really would like to think I sweated out all the calories I consumed, besides the fact I walked A LOT yesterday in my new super cute Steve Madden boots. (I tried on these boots on five separate occasions at Macy’s, so finally deciding on them was a big deal.)

Santa Anita was doing another Food Truck Festival, and I was there! The last one, Janette and I went to was amazing. I left my car at the nearby Santa Anita Mall (Where Alicia and Johnny would meet me that evening) and made the walk over to Santa Anita on foot. That’s when I realized it was a little hot. The forecast that morning had said 84 for Arcadia, and I would guess the temperature was in the high nineties by the end of the afternoon. Not ideal walking weather, but at least I brought ice water with me.

As we came around a corner, apparently entering Cancer Land, there were people smoking every where, I yelled “Oh God! Smoker’s! Scariest thing I’ve seen all day!”
So yes, I had an awesome time at Halloween Horror; I spent the whole night cracking bad jokes and making fun of tweens…It was awesome!
Well besides the eighty pound tweens shrieking in my ear and stomping on my new Steve Madden boots. If they only weigh eighty pounds how can they stomp on my toes like a pack of rabid elephants?
Alicia is one of those people who just adore scary movies and loves to be scared. I guess I’m just not scared of fake stuff like this. Once you have actually had a pack of coyotes chase you through a darkening burned down forest as the sun sets behind the mountains, and the fog is rolling in, okay then you have something to be scared of. I know. I’ve been there.
