Mustachioed Fun

So Amber over at Chronicles of Amber, sent me a mustache in my Halloween Swap box. Yes I know I've mentioned her in my last post. She's awesome. If you didn't already know that. And I promised her a pic of me in all my mustachioed glory. So for everyone in my corner of the blogosphere...

Now that I've thoroughly made an idiot of myself. Here's to a Fun and Silly Pre-Halloween/Samhain week.

Let's see some costumes posted. What are you going as? Me? I'm a Fall Fairy or a Greek Goddess. It'll depend on the weather here in MI. I'll post pics of Angel Baby and Squeaker after Halloween. But they're going as a Queen and Yoda.

Spooktacular Swap - Swag Time!

So as some of you may know, I joined in on the Spooktacular Halloween Swap hosted by Sara of Sara's Organized Chaos and Jamie of This is Me; Consequently. Well, I lucked out majorly and got the Bomb Diggity of all Swap Partners!!!! Amber of Chronicles of Amber.

You can all see the Spooktacular spookiness of my Swap stuff from her.

There were three additional boxes of candy. Peanut M&M's, Chewy SweeTarts, and a box of Mike and Ike's Berry candy. As you can see, I've mowed my way through three boxes of candy already. Eeek!

The Day of the Dead sugar skull pendant is really cute. In fact, I'm wearing it today!

It kind of reminds me of Ded Bob of the Ded Bob Sho at the Michigan Renaissance Festival.

And if you don't know who Ded Bob is. Check out his site. If you go to the main site. The password is "Hey what?"

I hope you are all enjoying the Halloween/Samhain season. I know I sure am! I watched Prometheus the other day. Nothing too freaky. Not Event Horizon type of shit or anything. (Though that was a great movie!) But it was a good prologue to Alien. The end of the movie was kind of a set up for another prologue type of movie. Kind of a sequel prologue. Prometheus as evidenced from the title was more about mythology and spirituality. Where do we come from? Why are we here?

Now that I've hijacked my own Swap post for a movie review, I'll call it quits here.

Hope everyone's enjoying the holiday season. And I hope my fellow Swap participants got some sweet and spooky stuff!

School Buses

School Buses.

I swear this is what my Angel Baby thinks of school buses right now. I don't get it. She's never had a problem before. We live near a school and she sees them all the time. But within the last week, she's suddenly had this epiphany that school buses are out to get her. Apparently when the Hubs drops her and Squeaker off at my Sis-in-Law's in the morning, if they see a school bus she loses it!!!

We'll have to get to the bottom of it. Though who knows what goes on inside the mind of a three year old.

My Hubs and I have a standard size shower in our bathroom. Nothing major right? Well apparently my Hubs has decided, within the last year and a half, that our shower head needs to be constantly moved up. Mind you, we've lived in this house for almost four years.

So, picture this. I'm 8 months pregnant with Squeaker and I want to take a shower. No problem. I noticed though when I got in that the water was spraying at the opposite wall of the shower.

THE WALL people. Now really?!?!?!

So I adjust it. Proceed to shower and think nothing else on it. Other than my husband has suddenly lost his mind. I mention it to him. He says he usually moves it, he just forgot to put it back. Whatever. Fine. Then he and Angel Baby leave. So I go upstairs to finish getting ready. I take a step into the bathroom, barefoot of course, and I almost bite it. I had to do this crazy, kung fu, yoga type move not to fall on my ass. Cause, hello! I don't want to hurt the baby that's currently taking up residence in my womb.

I pulled my twat people.

I kid you not. I didn't even know you could do that. But, I'm here to tell you, that yes, yes you can.I yell at mention it, to The Hubs and he says he won't do that again.

Famous last words.

Not only has it been an issue since then. But last fall we noticed a brown spot on the ceiling of the living room.Turns out that the water on the floor, leaked through the tile and then the floor boards and finally through the dry wall of the ceiling.

So now, how do we solve the issue? Maybe by being more cognizant of where the shower head is directed?


We have to have a hand towel on the floor by the tub so that it can sop up all the water from the shower.

I guess the good thing is that now there isn't water on the floor, so no more slip and slide bathroom time.

Crazy Wonderful Weekend

So this weekend left me exhausted and happy. Which I guess, is better than just exhausted.

I helped out my chapter, as you can see from my previous post. They got some great women at the end of everything. But I had to tap out early on Saturday morning. Yes, Saturday morning. 1:45am to be exact. The poor women probably had another two hours or so left. Ugh. But I think I may have thought of some little things to help streamline the process for next year!!! YAY!!!

Then to Angel's dance class at 10am. (A very worn out Momma here.) Then back home, grab all our stuff for the afternoon and night, and the dog. Then up to my Mom and Step-dad's for my brother's Wedding reception.

I was so excited to see my bro and my new sis-in-law!!! She's an amazing woman and I think they are going to make each other incredibly happy. (And I think they're going to start trying for a little one sooner, rather than later!!! Yay! More family babies, that I don't have to have!!!! Woohoo!!!!

Then home yesterday afternoon, for football and more sorority stuff. Wow, who'd have though advising would take up so much time. Luckily, the major amount of time, should be on the downswing. At least until elections in December.

So how was your weekend?
