Autumn in New England

Hi there!  Just thought I'd share some recent pics from my life.  It's been a beautiful autumn here in Boston and I only wish it could last forever.  Unfortunately, I know winter is coming and I better brace for it!  There is some good news:  I moved into a cute studio apt this year which means no shoveling for me!!  I love my new place and need to take some decent pictures.  Hope to share those soon.  In the meantime, these will have to do...  (side note, listening to a rather cheesy yet entertaining dramatization of "Hound of the Baskervilles" while posting this).

Declaration Hall - Philadelphia
Incline - Pittsburgh

Annie relaxing in my new chair
Autumn leaves (just before Sandy came)
typical breakfast - toast with nutella & bananas (yum!)
Poison Ivy or wood nymph?
I am proud to share this last picture (as embarrassing as it is).  I ran my first 5K AND it just so happened to be a super hero theme.  I went as poison ivy, but somehow ended up looking more like a wood nymph... oh well.  I used this pattern to make the dress.  I've been planning on making this dress for a long time and still look forward to making one out of, well, less shiny fabric.  
Cheers - S

Very cool outfit for your 5k! Batman was probably shaking in his bat-boots when he saw you coming, Brrrr! Nice autumn-y scenes from New England. And that breakfast makes me drool! Nutella is fine, but I'll take mine with hagelslag, please!
