Dead Bride-Witches-Clowns & Pirates ... Happy Halloween!!

For school today I was a Dead Bride. The students were absolutely taken by my beauty. Some said I should dress like this everyday!!
What sweet and loving children. . . ha ha
Always a Bridesmaid never a Bride.
This is my WONDERFUL-TERRIFIC & AMAZING Mentor Teacher Ms. Paluso (yeah-the one in the clown suit ... he he ha ha)
We both look like we have had it (this was taken toward the end of the day-whew!!)
It was a fun and exciting day. The students were buzzing with a lot of excitement and spunk!!
After the costume parade-the room moms had karaoke and treats for the kids.
Boy, they thought the karaoke was the coolest!! They performed and danced the whole time and put on quite the show. I sure enjoyed the day with them!!
I absolutely love working with kids and look forward to these days when I get to see their personalities a little more!!
Jacquie and I at the costume parade(we go to school together).
She was a darling witch-I sure have enjoyed getting to know her better this year!!
I look like I have my eyes closed, but they really are open - must be a dead thing.

Pirates R we!! What a cute pair!!

We went to our wards Truck-or-Treat tonight and many of the little ghosts, goblins, and ghouls were not about to come and get treats from us. . . mostly do the the fact that Jess was saying ARRRRRRRRRRRRRR too much and scaring them away!!

He's kinda a little ghoul himself!!

We have made it a tradition every year to dress up for Halloween. The two previous years we were hillbillies and then hippies. Jess is sure a good sport (he let me put eyeliner on him)

I am so blessed to have him in my life. My life would not be complete without him - Thanks for being my first (and only) mate-get it ... mate ... little pirate humor! Wink-Wink

ARRRRR Love You!

Latest New Do. . . . What am I Thinking?!?!?

During the summer months I decided to cut my hair shorter-ya know just a slight trim-few inches. Well the as you can see from the pictures above I cut a little more than just a few-try 13 inches!! Not what I was picturing when I walked in the salon-drastic change-but I love it.
I thought that I would begin to grow it out again, but after a couple months I needed a trim. . . well guess what happened. . . . .

I cut it SHORTER!!! I was freakin' out!! But too late-can't glue the old hair on anyway. . . . besides where it was already short why not play around with it and have a new do each week. The rate I'm going I might have inch-high spiked hair next month. . . . stay tuned. . . . .
Overall I love it-still trying to get use to using less shampoo & conditioner and having the breeze rush over the back of my neck, but I can live with it. Hopefully Jess can. . . he has been a pretty good sport about letting me cut it-although he loved my long hair. Well here is the new me, whatta think??

I have never laughed so hard. . . . we are beautiful people, huh!? Seriously some of these hair styles actually look decent-although I do have to admit I definately had huge bangs and hair growing up. What was I thinking!
Jesse is such a stud!! WOW what a Hottie! The feathered hair just melts my heart! Ha Ha
Hope you enjoy-we sure have!!

Eliza this one's for YOU!

OK, OK, I know-I am awful at keeping up to date.
Well, after a promise to Eliza to do something with my blog,
I gave in and will do my best to post once a week.
This picture shows our cute little family during the fall last year.
Trigger (our kid) was just a puppy in this picture.
He has since gone to doggy heaven, I have chopped my hair,
and Jess-well he is just dang cute!! Love ya babe!
So . . . I vow to do my best and become apart of the crazy
blogger mania!
