love the fanny pack! ha
How about a mask party!?!?!?
I would sooo be audrey!!! or Elvis ;)
There's other cute party decor on Cox & Cox.
I've always wanted to be the hostest with the mostest. lol OOh maybe we can have a crazy christmas sweater party!!!
Speaking of theme parties, hope you all have a LOVELY Halloween! We are having a themed halloween party with my gfs, where we're all a halloween character from alice in wonderland!!! What are you going to be???
Cute Halloween Couple Idea: My boss was telling me about how her daughter and bf went as Brangelina one year... She had on the big glasses, tattoos, and different colored baby dolls. How cute is that!?!?! I love it!!! Maybe next year... I would even fake a baby bump!
I adore Edward Burns and his films.
I also became a big fan of Selma Blair (who I detested before).
I was glad to see Patrick Wilson again, after first seeing him in this.
I want to move to NYC. In Burns' films, the City becomes a character itself.
If you've seen this film, the montage towards the end that shows how he was her best friend... it touched my heart.
It also made me.... sad.

but still, with 10
The towel said, "The Bates Motel" and the light in the bathroom was a red bulb. That's why I took a pic of myself, hoping to get me in red. Ya... not a photographer... didn't know the flash would make it come out 'normal.' lol BUT! at least you get to see my impromptu outfit. My Cheshire Cat one hasn't come in yet, so I just went as a Hooters Girl. I wore the stockings and scrunched socks. Mandi's husband Chris joked, "I thought you had to have Hooters to be a Hooters girl?" ha!
Earlier Saturday, I went and was a judge for Petco's Halloween Pet Costume Contest. Maddie (little sis) worked there in high school and they've been wanting me to be a judge since I worked at the TV station. Now that I'm [without enough notice] free on weekends, I was happy to do it! here's a couple of cute ones, and ya, OF COURSE i was partial to the small babies :) BUT....
labs won first place- a bride & groom :)
this is Hef's playmate. :) yup there was an owner that dressed her two pooches as Hef (cute little velvety robe, i thought i took a pic!) & a naughty maid. TOO FUNNY, esp when the owner didn't look like a lady that would chose such funny costumes. :)
you can see i favor chihuahuas (my family always had them as pets) :) little apple head chihuahuas are toooo cute!!!
frankenstien was my fave!!! when he walked, the green hands on the side would move, like he was a tiny person. haha
Grey's, it's FABULOUS!!!
the fat girl in me is
she's gained weight

C messaged me to ask if I had seen the front of the paper?
awww A story about Lola was on there.
It meant a lot to me that he was excited for me to see it.
What a life she lived!
She has spent nearly 104 years "charming princes," and "smoking Lucky Strikes."
In 1928 she got her master's degree in sex education. How did she put that degree to use?
"I got married," she says with a laugh.
She got married at 34. Met him in May, they were married in June... and married for 61 years!
He gave her a plain gold band on their wedding day. Lola says when she asked 'why just a band?' he said, "Our mothers were married with gold bands and they still have their husbands."
C joked that a gold band wouldn't be enough for me. lol
I told him um... only in the right context like this one. ha!
Reminds me of Carrie throwing up after seeing Aiden's original ring in SATC. lol

Something you should know about me... Before there was Robbie Williams, there was Bret Hart. He was my hero, my everything. No joke :) I loved and lived to watch the WWF. I always say this was back in wrestling's "glory days"-- totally diff. from the Wrestling we see today. Bret Hart was it. He truly is the best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be! Me and Marianne (who still loves shawn michaels) loved wrestling cos we loved our guys... not cos we were tom boys ;) we loved them in their tights etc. lol
When I was in middle school, i borrowed my best friend erienne's baby brother's fisher price play recorder. I put it up to the tv and recorded Bret's speeches. When we were going to bed in our shared room, I would drive Marianne CRAZY listening to this recorded cassette :). It was the only way I could sleep. My dad made me and my friends pink pancakes after a sleepover, cos that was his color. I mapped a whole trip from Texas to Canada and BEGGED my dad to take me. We're talking countless tears and pleading. I was destined to go to Canada and find him. Of course, it never happened. lol
I couldn't breathe. I emailed Marz this:
"I THINK I'M GOING TO DIE... :( he was in DENTON, TX on the 7th of OCTOBER!!! :(
i didn't know!!!!!
i'm going to die.
just die now.
right here in my seat.
He's not anywhere close anymore :( :( :( :(
OMG. i'm going to die.
GOING TO DIE.
OMG i would have fainted and cried if i had seen him. More so than Robbie.
I could cry now. :("
Marianne said Bret's PR person should be fired. I agree, he should hire me. :)
on the ONLY brighter note... I just called Hastings and they said they have exactly one copy of his bio in! AHHHHH so I'm fixing to leave right now and rush to get my hands on it! WHOOO HOOO!!! :) I [at least] have that.

my beloved is going on a much needed getaway with his brother Bruce. They are going fishing in a fancy cabin at the fancy Gastons White River Resort in Arkansas.
He's really excited because it will be fun quality time with his brother in beautiful nature.
But I will miss him. :(
Lola will miss him and be sad she's stuck with mommy for so long.
lover, miss me? a little?
cute card I'd get him here.

Today I decided to play with him via email.
Here's how it started:
I hope this wasn't too foward. ;)
The truth is, I am in this 100%. 110%. I will do anything to make him happy happy. I don't want him to EVER think I take him for granted. :( that's the worse feeling... of letting someone you love down. Wow, this was so much deeper than I meant for it to be... sorry you had to hear all that. :) But I'm happy, and i want to tell the WHOLE world!!!!!!!!!
you're a start. :)"
He was happy/confused opening their gifts... hoping and wondering. :) When he got to my gift, I handed him a birthday card with a picture I had printed of our puppy that said, "It's a GIRL!" He was the happiest birthday boy in the world! Nothing beats that moment. It was perfect.

AHHHHH I'm still in shock over experiencing truly a once-in-a-lifetime event!!! :) Last night me and my seesters saw NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK!!! they all look SO good (omg- those that are Jordan Knight fans like my twin sis will remember back when Jordan sang "Baby I Believe In You" with his white button down open. He does it during the tour and his body is as HOT as ever!!!). They seem so happy to be on stage again and you felt their appreciation.
They were really funny too... like my fave Donnie :) He said, "Some of you are having to get up early tomorrow morning for work and maybe a few of you... for school" *he said that with a playful cringe * and then he said, "Some of you are going home to husbands and some guys were brought out here." --- and then something like "good move! You'll have sex for the next couple of nights" or something like that :) HAHAH toooo funny!!!!
it was AMAZING! they sang all their best songs (except "let's try it again") and came back out for a spectacular finish!
Me and maddie loved how they danced like they did before ("The Right Stuff" dance… you know what I'm talking about!!!) and that even doing the "boyband" moves worked for them.
it was worth getting home at 3 am and being tired this morning. lol
but even moreso then the dream of seeing them perform?
was sharing it with my seesters!!!
Maddie: "My dream sandwhich would be the Wahlberg brothers..." LOL

NKOTB was the ULTIMATE boyband. I do believe every girl should have grown up loving a boyband. Believing she will marry that singer. :)

My mom (who doesn't drive) used to sell it, and told me stories about my Dad driving her to meetings and driving her when she would go deliver the goodies. lol
I especially love their 'Mark' products.
And so i ordered! :) I can't wait to wear this bohemian scarf!!!
I could have used it this morning.
I also bought deep plum nail polish. I have a thing for dark purple.
I thought this little purse was cute too.
another thing I bought off of blue bell bazaar shop on etsy.com is the vintage "LOVER" blocks. I had to have it. C said they were cute and asked where I'd put them. I said on our future bookshelf. :)
Now let me just say that I LOVED producing/anchoring my show. I did.
I just hated the sleeping in while birds still chirped outside and waking up groggy to my alarm clock at 1:30 a.m. every saturday
while my friends laughed away over drinks out and about somewhere.
My boy included.
I missed him.
It would cause fights.
I was not a happy girl swallowing the magic pill to get me to sleep.
That's the whole part I DO NOT miss.
I had to turn the offer down. I can't "free lance" election night either because, well, conflict of interest clearly.
Can you see me behind the anchor desk saying, "City officials say .. " bla bla bla?
No way I could do it.
I almost said yes to working this weekend.
Like I said, I didn't hate my show/crew and honestly, my Momma would have been happy to see me on tv again.
the moment passed.
I got out of it for a reason.
And I am much happier where I'm at.
I've got big plans ya see :)
PR experience for a year... then work PR at a hospital or the Cowboys (I'm a dreamer!). ;)
ya, I don't miss it.
but I'm flattered to have been asked.
