happy halloween

happy halloween my pretties....hehehehehe
(just pretend that was an evil witch laugh)

i adore halloween!
who doesn't love getting dressed up...
carving pumpkins...
stuffing your face with mini sized candy goodness...
and hello...FAKE EYELASHES!!!
in my mind it's not a halloween unless there are fake eyelashes involved;)

usually every year someone in our "group" will have a halloween party....
except this year a bunch of them were out of town...
whores...
(for those of you that don't know me well, we call each other that all the time lol...it's our endearing term for one another)

anyway...since we didn't get to have our annual halloween party this year, we decided to combine it with another annual event...
friend's giving...aka thanksgiving with your other family...your friends:)

our group will use any excuse to dress up in costume...
so below are some of my faves...
and stay tune for new pics from this year's...
ThanksFriendsHalloweening...
yep...we made up our own holiday with it's own name cause we're cool like that!

mad hatter & viking...
john likes to pick his costumes the day before halloween...
which makes them extra random...

gaga-licious...
totes made all those diamond things...

sir-sparkle-booties & gaga

dennis rodman, audrey hepburn, & dog the bounty hunter....
never thought you would hear those three names in the same sentence...

love.

a mexican, rainbow bright, and a witch....
this was one of those last minute halloween costume years lol...

we've collected quite a closet of props to be shared by all...

my all time fave pic of ann;)

flapper fabulous

the punisher & super barbie...
oh how i love that pink wig:)

happy halloween!!!

just breathe

it's so easy to get caught up in the craziness that is our lives.
there is always something to do...
somewhere to be...
new things to create...

it's so easy to forget that sometimes we just need to stop...
to enjoy the moment we are in...
and just breathe...

so yesterday,
 when pulling into my parent's driveway
i glanced to my left and noticed the tree in the front yard...

it was gorgeous.

so i smiled...
closed my eyes...
and took a deep breath...
and remembered how easy it is...
to enjoy the simple things:)







your turn....
smile...
close your eyes...
deep breath...

embracing change

so it's only weds and already this week has been crazy!
on monday & tues,
john (the boyfriend)
went through the process of enlisting in the
u.s. army national guard....

and not the one weekend a month national guard....
the scary special forces...
lots of training...
being away for long periods of time...
dangerous missions...
national guard.

needless to say there will be a lot of changes in the upcoming months,
but i'm so proud of him for doing what will make him happy
and i know we'll be a stronger couple in the end:)

after the long process of him getting sworn into the guard
we celebrated with a walk to red mango...
best.frozen.yogurt.ever.
and took in the last day of gorgeous weather...

the leaves are changing...
the air is changing...
and so is my life...
and i'm so ready...

a-n-o-n-y-m-o-u-s

you know how the saying goes...
"if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all"

well, let's be honest...
we all say things sometimes that we wish we didn't...
including yours truly...

i have what is called, foot-in-mouth-disease;)
i can't help it....i'm a sagittarius.
we're know for being...BLUNT!

so yes, i have been known to say things that will raise an eyebrow...or two...
because i will say exactly what i'm thinking (even if it prob shouldn't be said out loud)
but i love that part about me.

i love that when you meet me
what you see is what you get.
i don't try to pretend to be someone i'm not.
if i love you, you'll know it...
and if i'm not your biggest fan, unfortunately you'll know it too:)

that is why i adore this quote...



i'm proud that i shine...
and i will happily tell you that i think i'm pretty fabulous...
and if you really have nothing better to do and feel the need to tell me otherwise,
go for it...
but don't be afraid, and hide behind a 9 letter word that isn't your name...
