Happy Halloween!

I haven't blogged in almost a month because we're busy and I don't have a whole lot to talk about and I'm lazy. But, lo and behold, on a really cranky/whiny day I end up here. Funny how that happens.

So it's Halloween in two days!  I'm dressing up tomorrow for work and then going to a party at night and Mike is actually doing a couple's costume with me. I told him that means we're officially a couple. Eight years together, married for four years, lived in four states together, but the couple's costume is what really cinched it!

In honor of the totally pointless, but always fun (and hello candy!) holiday, here are some random photos of me from Halloweens past in no order because that would require effort.

That was literally one of two days that haircut looked good...

My pumpkins are always awful and simple and Mike's are amazing.

Point proven.

He had already eaten the matching antennae by this point.

(I'm so old)

Fun fact continued:  THIS is not a good outfit for a walk of shame...don't ask me how I know that...

Happy Halloween, weirdos!

Fun Stuff to Wash Out the Unfun Stuff

This week has been one of those weeks where, no matter how sleepy you are at night, you lay in bed unable to sleep with shooting pains radiating throughout your chest and in the morning, you start bawling at Rory's graduation scene in Gilmore Girls.

Thankfully, today is Friday and I have a friend who texts me silly dog photos first thing in the morning and my sister sends me emails all day and my dogs are adorably snuggling pillows on the couch right now and I am able to do things to give myself hope and also my husband's abs. Yeah, that last one helps a lot.

When things are trending down, I like to come into this place and post fun or positive or distracting things. So let's do that, shall we?

Pink ombre hair:
If I were ten years younger, I would dye my hair light pink ombre and wear it like this for my sister's wedding.

cute knitted monster leggings -- via Ravelry I take back everything I said about it not being fun to knit for boys!:

Annnnd some cheesy quotes to lift me/you up:

Worrying does not empty tomorrow of its troubles, it empties today of its strength. - Corrie Ten Boom:

The story of life.... Every battle and circumstance that you face makes you stronger...Life is about learning, while living... and fighting for those that you love and care about.:


Also, I'm going to drink a bunch this weekend. That should help.
