How in the world do I wrap a scarf?

I googled this question recently and found a very hip and informative video.  I don't know about you but I hate not knowing how to do something like wrap my scarf in a cool way.  Usually since I don't know how to do it I give up and leave home minus my scarf.  Thanks to Wendy I am now educated!     
I went with the "double rainbow" today.  What do you think?  
It is raining and cold in Los Angeles today.  
This scarf wrap information could not have come at a better time.
Enjoy your weekend!

I'm Reading the Potato Peel Pie Book

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows

It has taken me a while to get into this book but I think I like it finally at page 45.  It is all letters, which was a huge turn off at first but I am getting into it now.  It is set in 1946 post World War 2 in occupied Germany.  The main character, Juliet, is around my age, single and a successful author.
Looking forward to evenings to come where I can curl up with a spot of tea and enjoy this little dandy.  A part of my day that I really look forward to.  If you will remember I'm somewhat new to reading for fun.
This book makes me miss writing and receiving old fashioned letters.  Anybody want to be pen pals?

Holidays are so much FUN with kids.  Our weekend was jam packed with Halloween Hoopla.  

Friday Night - We went to an International Student Potluck.  Many of the students, newly arrived to America, carved pumpkins and showed off their creative costumes.  

Saturday Night - Our friends, Hyung and Julie, threw their awesome annual Halloween Party.

Monday Night - We took G trick-or-treating on a quaint little street about a mile from our apartment.  The houses were decorated with cobwebs, ghosts made from old sheets, the whole bit.  None of it seemed to faze G.  He feel asleep on the way home.  Once he was in bed (still in costume) Brent and I dumped all the Halloween candy out on the living room floor and proceeded to eat it ALL.  As if the candy was not enough, I popped some popcorn and we watched "It's the Great Pupmkin, Charlie Brown."  (Amazon Affiliate Link)

Needless to say, we got our money out of those Halloween costumes.  It was very rewarding to see all my hard work come to fruition.  I could not have done it without Marmee's help.
