Halloween #StreamTeam Style

Oh woe are we in Chicago.

The kiddos have been hoping for this great weather to hold out through Halloween. Last year, my team when out in a downpour to trick or treat. They got more candy than I could have ever imagined when I was a kiddo. Every house we went too all but dumped their entire bucket of candy into the bags because my kids were one of maybe five who actually went out and trick or treated.

Cut to tomorrow. We're supposed to have 30 degree weather, 20 mile per hour wind, and rain. SO...THAT.

I have no doubt my kiddos will go out. Free candy ya'll, is what my kids will say. They will pile on the coats and head out into the mire to knock on every door and chant, "Trick or Treat!"

I have no doubt the candy will again be in the arena of insanity. That said...when we get home, and kick off our cold wet shoes and curl up in front of the TV to dump out the candy and start the great trading of the loot, we'll most certainly order Chicago pizza, (I am sure I'll be in the mood for a good deep dish after mucking about in the rain all evening.) and turn on Netflix.

I already have the binge watch cued up...The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy. AKA Billy and Mandy.
How did I not know that Netflix had this gem in their library?

Mandy is the crabbiest girl you'd ever want to meet. I have NO idea why that speaks to me ;)

They have all 39 episodes, and I am thrilled. (Don't tell the kids, but I may be a little more excited than they are for our Billy and Mandy marathon.)

How about you...are you in warmer territory for Halloween? What are your Halloween plans? Curling up and watching any Netflix?

I've become obsessed with movement of water...

That's not entirely true. I've actually become quite interested in freezing it. I took this shot today on my run.
Yes, I take them with my phone. Yes, I edit on my phone. These days, when I run, I'm thinking..."Where is my picture." These waves weren't very big, but in this one corner, they were crashing up. I stood, and waited. There was actually a woman runner behind me, laying on her back, trying to get the perfect shot of the Hancock Building. I was the annoying girl in her way. While I love the sky in this and the fade out color and the ferris wheel in the distance, it's this that I love looking at...
 It looks like glass. I've been looking at it on my phone, all day. Soooo...that...

Just keep running...

I've become a bit obsessed with photographing waves on the lakefront. Don't know why...but I can't get enough of it.
