Re: October

  • Something you liked about September?
    The warm weather held out and I got to enjoy summer a little longer.  Having a girls' day with my mom, sisters, and niece.  


    Something you disliked about September?
    Getting covered in mosquito bites.  

    Something you accomplished in September?
    Stuck with my fitness plan and now my "fat pants" are big on me.  I didn't accomplish, but still a huge deal -- last week was 1 month that my bf was smoke free.

    Anything exciting going on in October?
    Birthday month. My bf's brother's wedding.  Visiting my grandma.  Whatever my bf has in mind for my birthday.  The gorgeous colors of fall. 

    What are you not looking forward to?
    Fall means snow is around the corner, and I'm never ready for snow.  Also, the bill I'm going to get for alterations to my MOH dress (after talking with the other bridesmaids who all ordered from different salons, it is a designer issue.  Fair warning for anyone looking into the Mori Lee 122 dress).

    Goals for October?
    Doing another fitness plan and hoping to stick with the daily workouts and meal plans.  

    Do you dress up for Halloween? If so, what is your costume going to be?
    I used to all the time- late October birthday means automatic Halloween party. So far, the only thing planned for Halloween is a wedding, so most likely won't be dressing up this year.  May need a last minute idea if we get invited to any parties.

    Something you disliked about September?
    All the cheer nonsense. 

    Something you accomplished in September?
    Some big work goals were met, so that was awesome. Also, I finished the cheer routine.

    Anything exciting going on in October?
    Lots going on! We are looking at a few venues this coming Saturday!!! Then we have parties, pumpkin carving, cheer comps, and a bridal expo!

    What are you not looking forward to?
    I am still nervous that certain parents are going to pull their kids the day of comp, and if that happens we will be screwed. Really hoping that doesn't happen.

    Goals for October?
    Set a date!!

    Do you dress up for Halloween? If so, what is your costume going to be?
    We do little things at work. I am going to wear a Captain America tee with my CA Mickey ears.

  • @speakeasy14 If you need quick costume ideas go to the pajama section of Target for lovely gems like these! (And if you get the Eeyore one we can match, because I totally bought one)

  • Hi there.  I'm back.  And miserable.  I miss my baby and she was crying when I left her at the daycare.  The daycare lady is sullen all the time and hates the fact that I visit at lunch (major attitude).  :( 

    Something you liked about September?
    -Cuddling with Ani mostly.

    Something you disliked about September?
    -Preparing to go back to work.

    Something you accomplished in September?
    -It was mostly just a month of couch cuddles but I've gotten Ani to take more naps so that's a plus.

    Anything exciting going on in October?
    -Not really.

    What are you not looking forward to?
    -I think my answer is obvious for this one.  I just want to snuggle with my baby.

    Goals for October?
    -Hire a nanny ASAP, try to adjust back to work.

    Do you dress up for Halloween? If so, what is your costume going to be?
    -No but Ani will be a little monkey.  :)

    Starting my baby girl on solids. It's so much fun to watch her reactions when she tries new things.
    Something you disliked about September?
    Work, and lack of sleep.
    Something you accomplished in September?
    We cleaned out our big closet, where random things go to die. Always a big accomplishment.
    Anything exciting going on in October?
    Halloweekend at Cedar point, Boo at the zoo, and my moms annual Fall party!
    What are you not looking forward to?
    We need to paint our deck before it starts snowing. Womp womp.
    Goals for October?
    Not necassarily October but my goal is to set up a basement playroom by Christmas. (So we have somewhere to put all the toys she will likely get)
    Do you dress up for Halloween? If so, what is your costume going to be?
    I usually do. I don't have much inspiration this year/don't want to spend money so I will probably just go as something I've already got..Cat, catwoman, little red riding hood. I picked up a costume for baby A though and she will be a pink leopard :)

  • @speakeasy14 I have no clue how to post pictures. The ring is a rose gold halo with a diamond band. I'm in love lol

    We went away for the weekend and on the last morning we had reservations for high tea. As I was getting ready he told me he bought me a lotto scratch ticket, which I love. I told him the card looked funny and I had to read the instructions cause I've never seen this one before. It said 'if you uncover three of the sand symbols in play area one you win $20. If you uncover three diamonds you win what ever the prize is in play area two' I scratched play area one and got three rings. I was super excited to win $20.

    Then he told me to scratch play area two which I didn't want to do cause I already won lol. Anyways I said fine I'll scratch it and it said 'will you marry me'. I look at him and start bawling as he is on knee with a ring box in his hand. After I calm down and get the ring one he then tells me he organized a bbq for both our families and it will have all my favorite foods. He he even got my favorite champagne. He did an awesome job and I will never forget that day.
