♥ Happy Halloween ♥


Because being a zombie is just so cool. I know. I look totally awesome, don’t I? I was rocking the ladybug look out and about then I somehow got turned into a zombie. Maybe it was all those mosquitos outside tonight. It was warm out. Warm enough to trick or treat in my flip flops and a t-shirt.

But see, zombies are pretty hot looking. I think I would make an awesome looking zombie. Brains! Eat Brains!

Of course, I doubt if I were to turn into a real zombie, I would not want to eat brains. Sounds yucky. I could eat ice cream and be very happy!

Happy Halloween to all my guys and ghouls out there.

And then there is my little girl. My darling princess. Oh how she has grown so much since her very first Halloween. She was only two weeks old back then and was a little pink kitty cat.

Now she is such a big girl. This year was the first year she wanted to be something girly. In the past, it was always boy-ish things {Spidergirl, Superwoman, Batgirl, etc} but this year, it was strictly girly.

She was wearing Cinderella’s wedding gown. We found this at Disney for originally $99.50 and it was on sale for $24.99. How could we beat that? She loved it, I loved it…Perfect! Daddy wasn’t too fond of all the glitter on it, but that’s alright.

It even had little glass slippers as well. Totally adorable. Daddy did her face paint as makeup and we both took her trick-or-treating around the neighborhood for the very first time. In the past, we always had just gone to Disney {and we did this year as well} but this time, she got to experience it like I did as a kid. Just going door to door and on the way, made a friend she walked around with the rest of the night.

She got a lot more candy then I expected since not a whole lot of people were handing out candy. But she loved the experience. My beautiful little girl. How you are growing up right before my eyes.


So let your souls run free because it’s Halloween!

♥ Friday Funny ♥

It's another Friday and I'm linking up once again with an awesome girl, Rachel. Post anything funny to share some happiness and joy around. So here is mine for the week:

I have to first introduce this video. This is part of the "Bum Fights" phenomenon and yes, back in college, I really got into this and we spent hours laughing our asses off at these videos. But none other then Bling Bling was my fav. And this is my favorite clip of him just saying random shit.

Bling Bling the Crackhead. He's crazy. He'll do anything on camera. He'll smoke crack, rap and sing a song, take a shit in the middle of the street, talk about how he was abducted by aliens.... he's a crazy bum.

I was so excited to find all his videos on youtube. Some are boring and some are pretty funny. But this, is still by far, my fav video of him.

♥ Vacation Rewind ♥

Well, its been a week since my vacation and life is back to normal. Hectic and crazy. My vacation was sort of the same. It should have gone better then it did. But in any case, it was nice to see my parents. Although it was a stressful vacation, we still had fun. Did a whole lot and no one is really used to that much excitement in a matter of a few days anymore. So here is a layout of my little map I made to see where we went:
So I stayed local as you can see, I live in central Florida. But it was nice for my parents to fly down from up north and get out of the cold. We went to DisneyWorld, LegoLand, and the beach. They also went to Universal Studios one of the days as well with my dumbass brother. I hope one day to take a real vacation away from home but until then, its fun for my parents to come down here and enjoy all the tourist things.
My vacation started off with my little baby girl turning the big age of five on October 19th. Five years old. Can you believe it? Doesn’t seem like she has been in our lives for that long. Seems like yesterday we were rocking her in our arms, changing her diapers and up all hours of the night for feedings and cryings.
So this year, we threw a big birthday party at her school with all her friends and teachers instead of at home. She wanted an all SpongeBob birthday and she got one. It was so much SpongeBob, my head was spinning. She had a blast and so did all the kids in her class.

That’s my little birthday girl above munching on her yummy pizza. She loved all the attention she got that day
The kids had pizza, beat the crap out of a piñata and lots of cake. There was the main cake and a cookie cake as well of great goody bags we made up as well. And as her birthday gift, she got an American Girl doll and tons of accessories and clothes for her and the doll to match. I always wanted one when I was little but never got one so my parents went crazy and pretty much bought out the whole store for her. This was one of the little sets they got her all set up.
The next day after her birthday, we went to DisneyWorld. Magic Kingdom has Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween every year and we went last year and had a blast. So this year, we went again. We got lots of candy from trick or treating with all the Disney characters and my daughter loved meeting all her favorite ones. She always enjoys it when we go. We went on lots of rides and was there from 3:45pm to 1:00am. So a very long day for everyone.

So here are a few photos out of the many I took. We have gone to Disney so much that there are only so many pictures you can take of the same things and do, ya know? All the cute character photos we took are my favs. That is my favorite thing to do there. She was just so exhausted that you can really see it in the pics. I also really love taking pics of the fireworks at night. But she got to wear her Halloween costume the whole time. Last year we brought home 15 pounds of candy. This year, not as much but still I would say a good 6-7 pounds. It was still fun. Just a long day.
So LegoLand opened up a week and a half ago down here so my dad just up and surprised us with tickets. It wasn’t on our original agenda. But needless to say I was excited because I wanted to go. We have been to the one in Denmark and that was loads of fun. This one is so new that while it was fun, it wasn’t like the one in Denmark and still had a lot of things to be done to it. Rides broke down on us and things weren’t working properly. But it was good for what it was. Everything was made out of legos which is fun to look at and see.

The last big thing I did with my parents {besides a lot of shopping the next day} was going to Daytona Beach. Now, this isn’t all that great because I work right over here so I see and go over this way everyday but I never get to just to straight to the beach. So I loved it. I love coming here and just relaxing and playing in the sand and water. The beach is so nice. Powder sand that feels good on your toes and the beautiful fresh air from the ocean. And the best part was, there was hardly anyone there that day so it felt perfect. And of course, there were barely any clouds in the sky. Perfect for a wonderful tan.

Of course, we did a lot of shopping. Got a ton of new clothes for me and my daughter. And it wouldn’t be complete without a new look to go with it. So I changed myself completely around with a new hair cut and dyed my hair super dark. I feel like a rockstar now! So here are two of the photos with my cut but hair color before and then my hair color after getting all the lighter blonde out.

♥ Wordless Wednesday ♥

Well, howdy! I’m back from my vacation. It went by too fast yet it felt like it went by slow. How does that happen? Anyway, I’ll have to write a post about it with photos. We did a lot of things over the course of the week. But for now, here is my Wordless Wednesday photo:


I took this photo during my vacation. Actually it was taken this past Sunday while we were at Daytona Beach. I really loved how there was hardly anyone at the beach and all the sailboats were out and about. This was a fun shot cause these two boats were parked right by where we were sitting and playing and so I got tons of great shots of them. The colors are amazing. I love how the sail is reflected in the sand
