Well, it’s been a little while since I’ve checked in. I’ll try to do better! I came dangerously close to dropping my History class. If it weren’t for my hubby telling me to just suck it up and do it, I’d be happily courseless right now. But, as it turns out, he gave good advice (shhhh, do NOT tell him I said that…). The original instructor is no longer teaching the course so I tried to tell him that the course was so awful that even the professor dropped it! He was unfazed…but anyway, the new instructor is SO MUCH BETTER. Could just be because she finds my answers much more intelligent than that last chick, I don’t know. My midterm in tomorrow, which means that I am officially half way through this … ummmmm …. classthatisnothingmorethanthreecreditstotransfertoanothercollegesoIcangetaseconddegree. WOOHOO!!!!! 🙂
Ok…I got the “school” stuff out of the way. Right now there are only two things that I am truly interested in. Halloween and Pinterest. Let’s start with Halloween. I HAVE THE BEST COSTUME EVER this year. Hubs and I were invited to a Halloween party. For some this may not seem like a big deal, but we have kids and have lived in a “we don’t have time to hang out with friends” bubble. Which is really code for “we are completely anti-social home bodies…”. So this year, we decided that it was time to BREAK OUT. Oh yeah… The theme for the party is “The Movies”. After MUCH consideration, and I mean WEEKS of thinking this through, we (I) finally made a decision. I am going to be Anna Valerious from Van Helsing while my other half is going to be Dracula. He was originally going to be Van Helsing but he was worried about looking like just a cowboy (and let’s face it, he’s no Hugh Jackman, but then again, Kate Beckinsale would be pretty pissed to hear that I’m trying to look like her.)
We went a little nuts with the costumes. He got white contacts, which scared the hell out of our daughter last night when he tried them on. (Side note: Am I a bad parent for thinking that is hilarious?!) He also got a wig, a coat and, well, I guess that’s it. Damn, ok, I went a little nuts on the costume! I got the thigh high boots, leather corset, wig and sword. Did you know that you can buy real, this thing will kill you, swords on E-Bay?! Wonder if I need a permit for that? Hope not… I’ll have to share some photos after. Stay tuned…
Ok, my second obsession right now is Pinterest. If you have not heard of this website, I caution you, YOU.WILL.BECOME.ADDICTED. I can’t even really tell you how awesome it is. You need to check it out for yourself. Go to www.pinterest.com and then tell me if you don’t absolutely, completely, ridiculously lose yourself in it. Check it out and then let me know how ticked you are at me for telling you about it. 🙂
That’s it for now. I’ll try to be more diligent with my posts. Ya know, between school, kids, work, husband, house, yada yada yada…I need a vacation…*GASP* I almost forgot to tell you! I’m going home to Connecticut in a couple of weeks to visit my mom and sister for the weekend!! It was a total last-minute decision that involved an intensive flight search and a pity party fest with my hubs. Not only do I get to spend the weekend with the fam, but we’re going to spend a day in the city. You know THE CITY…NEW YORK CITY. One of my favorite places…ahhh, nothing like New York. Now I’m just trying to decide if I should dress comfortably or embrace the Sex in the City vibe and wear those new 5 inch thigh highs I got….
