I Need To Set The Record Straight.

I did not make Vivi's costume. It was bought for her at a resale shop by Kendra aka The Thrift Store Diva. I believe she paid $1 for it. Vivi originally wanted to be Cinderella, but fell in love with the little pink dress, she changed her mind.

So, for those of you with scorecards, let's go down the list.

Vivi's 5 Little Monkeys Birthday Cake - Made by us.

Emerson's Rockford Peach Costume - Made by us.

Vivi's China Doll Costume - Store bought.

I'm sorry for the extra paperwork.

In other news, we received a note from Emerson's school regarding Halloween Costumes.

"At _______School we celebrate Halloween in a fun, non-violent way. Please plan your child's Halloween costume with the following in mind:

Costumes must:

- Not contain any weapons (real or imitation). This includes but is not limited to swords, guns, knives, clubs, lasers, etc.
- Not contain any fake blood or other gruesome masks.
- Not represent a violent character such as Freddie Krueger, "Jason", an axe-murderer, terrorist, etc.
And my very favorite.

-Cover the child appropriately, that is: no exposed torso, chest area, buttocks, etc.

Man, now I have to put away Emerson's pair of assless chaps until Thanksgiving! That school takes the piss out of everything!!

I will post pictures of Emerson's costume when I have it finished. She doesn't need it until Friday and I still have some finishing touches to do.

Happy Birthday Vivienne!

5 Years ago today, they put that tiny little girl in my arms for the first time. My life was changed forever and I can't imagine it without her.

Happy Birthday Vivi! No matter how big you get, you will always be my baby.

Conversations With Matt Plus a Suprise

Here are a few conversations that Matt and I have had over the past few weeks.
Matt: "Antonio Alfonseca had 6 fingers."

Me: "What happened to his other 4?"

Matt: "He had 12 total."

Me: "Are you trying to confuse me?"

(I know this isn't an original exchange, but when the opportunity to quote Steel Magnolias presents itself, you have to jump on it!)

While Matt and I were watching T.V.

Matt: "Well, I counted and they have used that word three times now on network T.V."

Me: "What word?"

Matt: "Douche." "It's like the FCC decided that it was acceptable and now everyone is using it."

Me: " do know that it's an actual product that they have been advertising for years."

Matt: "Oh yeah, I forgot that it wasn't just an insult."

One night after Matt came home from work

Me: "How was your day?"
Matt: "I dealt with the craziest woman today." "She just kept talking to herself and then she came down to the basement to talk to me" "She told me all about her affair with the King of Spain."

Me: "Really?"

Matt: "Yes, and then she told me all about how she worked for a man who was very nice and had a lot of children." "The kids were so talented and they put shows on for their father all the time" "Unfortunately, after one of their performances, they had to sneak out and flee to Switzerland to escape the Nazis." "She was telling me the plot to the Sound of Music like it happened to her!" "It was so sad!"

Me: "Then she probably had an affair with Francisco Franco, he ran Spain but wasn't actually a king, more of a dictator."

Matt: "Somehow, you missed the point of my story."

And now for the surprise. I decided I needed a change, can you see anything different in this picture?

It's looks a lot brighter because of my yellow kitchen walls, it's much better in natural light.

Johnny Depp Monday!

I can't really explain why I haven't been around at all these last few weeks. All I can say, is that I haven't been feeling it.

I can't think of anything to blog about. I used to be interesting, but now I hardly ever get out of my pajamas. I think I may need to see a therapist.

I've had some major issues these past weeks that have taken their toll. I'm tired...very, very tired.

I'm hoping to be back up and running soon.
