Annual Fall Harvest Party 2013

Six weeks ago (though it actually feels like 6 months ago), we hosted our 3rd Annual Fall Harvest Party.

This year was bigger and better than ever.  We had about 90 guests in our home.

We had a bluegrass band, Common Ground; a full bar complete with bartenders and our signature drink, homemade apple pie moonshine; a photographer, Brittany Callahan; and talented caterers (who happen to be my childhood friends), Craig and Stephanie Bente.

Every year, we hold an ugly gourd competition.  This year's entries were impressive...and gross.  

The first place winning gourd was a year old, disintegrating, diseased looking specimen.  April won a case of wine from Southern Season.

The second place prize, a bucket of beer and snacks, went to the "Don't Be A Weiner, Vote For Me" gourd which was proudly decorated by Justin and Kristin.

Last but not least, a picture of Miley's famous "tongue and twerk" on a lovely phallic shaped squash won Jill and Jay a Thanksgivingopoly board game.

p.s.  Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice?  Because you guys have been so sweet to me over Instagram and the blog with your well wishes.  I felt a ton better today and then bam, it hit me again at 7 o'clock tonight.  I'm calling a doctor first thing in the morning.  Thanks for being so amazing!
