Trick or Treat! Happy Halloween!

We are off to a Halloween party tonight. After much thinking, we developed our costume. Steven is going as a Catholic priest. Diane is going as a banker...who is begging for forgiveness.

The party should be fun. The company hosting the party is located in the former secret police headquarters for Nazi Germany and then the Soviets. Truly frightening!

We will post photos tomorrow!

hot chocolate

We meet up with friends, Adri and József, for dinner last week at the super retro cool Menza Restaurant. You will remember that they took us to Adri's home town Mezőkövesd where Diane fell in love with all-things Matyo. We also shared Easter with them and our good friend Andi, her boyfriend and family.

After dinner, Adri and József introduced us to a fantstic chocolate shop. It was like a coffee house but they specialize in hot chocolate! Oh My Gosh! This was the best hot chocolate I have ever had! It was like hot pudding! I am sure it was low fat-yeah right!

That bright white thing next to the cup is a lady finger cookie...
so tasty when dipped in the chocolate!

our friend cooper

Last week we dog sat for good friends of ours. Cooper was great! I (Diane) love Westies!

Cooper posing.
I love his lion pose. I think he is in inspired by the lions on The Lanchid

hunters and gathers

I know we haven't been posting as much. I have been trying to post regularly to my design blog which means I have been bad at updating this blog. We will try to be better if you promise to be better about commenting:)

We have a tree that hangs over our garden. It has dropped a ton of walnuts! Last week we went outside and gathered all the good ones!

Diane's Grandma and Grandpa shared this photo of walnuts they picking up in their backyard...the size of a baseball!!
Do you have walnuts to pick, maybe mushrooms?

A view of Budapest

This a positive and inspiring video of our adopted home. Even often cynical Pestiside gave it a thumbs up with some caveats of course.

Come visit soon!
