My HowlOWeen Date with Millie

Hey everyone!

First, don't forget to click back to my earlier posts:  Pumpkin Decorators, Punkin Chuckin and the Crabby Girls' Date!

Wow, I am so honored to have the lovely Millie as my date for the HowlOWeen extravaganza!  I wanted to spend a lot of time with her today, so we started our adventure waaay before the big Costume Ball.


Millie's outfit for today was hand-made by her talented Mom and is inspired by the perfect HowlOWeen treat, candy corn.   I wanted to coordinate with her, so I selected a bandana to match!

To start our date off, I decided to follow the spooky holiday theme and take Millie to an authentic Romanian Restaurant for lunch!    This will give us the feel of being in Dracula's Transylvania.

 Here we are at the restaurant!    Isn't she gorgeous in her dress?!?

 What a cool atmosphere!

I ordered for us.    We are starting our meal out with traditional Romanian gulas.   
It's a stew of meat, noodles, veggies, paprika and other spices.    YUM!

 Then, we were served mititei and mamaliga.    
Mititei is Romanian sausage -grilled, ground meat rolls of beef, lamb, pork and spices served with mild mustard.  Mamaliga is a traditional porridge made from millet flour.   It was all delicious!

For dessert, we shared gogosi and baklava.   
OMD the flavors of Transylvania are marvelous!

After such a filling and tasty lunch, we were ready to stretch our legs a little!   To keep the HowlOWeen feel going, I took my dream girl Millie on a tour of a castle!    What a cool way to spend some extra time together by strolling the grounds and rooms of a real medieval castle.

This is such a grand place!   It definitely feels like part of a spooky story.

 We expected to see bats or maybe even some ghosts!  

 We explored all of the fascinating rooms and admired the architecture.

 I decided to show off a little for her....trying to look royal in the big throne!  BOL

The grounds and gardens were beautiful!    Such a fun place for an adventure.

Once we had finished touring the castle, it was time to get ready for the Costume Ball!   I changed into my costume and we hit the big Dance event.

We made a pair of sweet treats fur sure!   
Millie the candy corn sweetie and me the hershey kiss treat.
Her dress is so amazing!

The music was rockin and we had a great time dancing the night away!
OMD Millie is a spectacular dancer.   Whew!

The lighting and decorations are perfect!    
What a fabulous Ball and we really enjoyed getting to see so many furiends.

We danced until our legs and paws were sore...then danced even more!   BOL

During a slow song, we cuddled up for a nice, close, sway-to-the music time.
Gosh, she's so very sweet!

 Eventually, the Ball began to wind down and it was an end to the evening.

We posed together for a memorabilia photo and we shared a sweet smooch.

Oh, Millie, I had such a wonderful time with you today and I hope you enjoyed yourself as much as I did on our date!   It was a fabulous day and I think you're a lovely lady.    Thanks for sharing the adventure with me.

Grr and an Eerie Woof,

Crabby Girls and Coccolino at the Ball

Hello, Darlings!   We crabby girls are having so much fun today.   Our adorable beau, Coccolino is escorting us to the HowlOWeen Costume Ball.  Oh, he is such a dashing and suave fellow and he treats us like royalty.   Here are some photos of our amazing time at the star-studded event!

Since our darling Coccolino's costume is a little pink piggy, we decided to coordinate 
with him by designing our own stylish variation on a crabby theme.

Isn't he simply adorable?!? 
Teeheehee we are very lucky girls to have such a fun-loving beau!

We had a fabulous time entering Mollie and Alfie and Misaki's costume contest!
There were dozens and dozens of marvelous costumes from all over our community.

 We arrived in high style and proudly walked the red carpet with our Coccolino.

 During the Ball, we enjoyed dancing the night away!
Oh, we girls do love to work our long and lovely leggies to some wonderous music.

 Coccolino is an excellent dancer.    
He surely knows how to show the ladies a magical time!

He even led us to the memory-making area where we had our photos taken
so that we will remember our time together forever.

This was a most glorious evening, and we crabby girls, Beachnut Oceana and Shelldon had an amazing time with our sweet and exotic Coccolino.    Thank you, darling, for once again treating us like a true gentleman and giving us such an exciting evening together.

And, earlier today, there were other adventures for us!   
We joined several of our friends for their various events including these...


We had an exhilarating hayride over at Angel Pip and Rosie's blog!  
The weather was perfect and the ride was so much fun!

And we had a wonderful time with Casey during his bonfire!   
The foodables were delightful and we all sang songs and visited together.

Finally, I, Oceana penned a ghost story for the divine Mayoress Madi!
OMClawd it was a grand undertaking and I thoroughly enjoyed the writing process.
Goodness she received great entries and the stories were all fabulous!

We crabby girls hope that you all attended the various events during this HowlOWeen extravaganza!   It is most definitely THE event of the season, darlings.  

Please be sure to click backwards to Sarge's earlier PUMPKIN DECORATORS and PUNKIN CHUCKER posts!   Teeeheehee those are so funny!   
AND be sure to visit in a few hours to see the big DATE WITH SARGE AND MILLIE!

Ciao and Little Pinches,
