Guess who!

Guess who I was for Halloween!
Here's a few clues...
1. She can bake.
2. She loves to garden.
3. She has a tv show.
4. She has a doggie named Francesca.

I was Martha Stewart! I really got into the part and spent much of the afternoon/evening making 60 popcorn balls to take to a Halloween party.

I didn't think I would carry the popcorn balls around all evening, so I decided that I needed another prop to really make it clear what I was dressed up as. I thought to myself, "What would Martha need?" and filled a basket with a cookbook, Martha Stewart magazine, garden shovel & gloves, pin cushion, knitting needles & yarn and a pattern book. Unfortunately, I didn't have a basket with a handle and this got heavy and uncomfortable pretty early on!

When I walked into the party, I still had my coat on, but the hostess shouted, "YAY! Martha Stewart's here!" And then everyone shouted "Martha Stewart!" They thought it was hilarious when I took off my coat and said, "That's what I dressed up as...Martha Stewart!" I (sort of) lived up to my name and prepared Pizza Rolls throughout the night. After all, I had my very own kitchen timer in my Martha basket!

Perfect. Now what would Martha have done about the basket. Probably collected leaves along the way to weave into a handle!
