The Cutest Halloween Costumes

Okay, so I didn't get finished my Halloween costume to enter the competition like I planned to. However, there are some pretty cute homemade Halloween costumes over at 4 Nuts in a Nutshell even without mine.

On Cat's blog, you get to vote for the person who made the best/cutest one. The winner gets a $25 gift card to Target. But we have to vote to help them do that.

I really liked the Crayons, Tinkerbell and Peter, Robin, and the Ghost. They were all so cute, but I just can't tell you which one I voted for. You need to go vote for yourself. So go see and Vote.

My Long Silence Ended

Well, one of my longest silences. I have been really busy trying to get my Halloween costume finished. (I didn't get it done) I've been using every spare moment to cutting out fabric and sewing them together. Even Friday night. My Hubby spent date night helping me. He cut out fabric, went to Joanns for me, cut out interfacing, and volunteered to sew if I would show him how. I stayed up until 5 am trying to get it done before we went to Witches Night Out at Gardner Village. But I just didn't get it finished. Hopefully it will be done by Halloween.

I went to Gardner Village anyway and had a great time. Here we are getting ready to leave:

My Sweet Pea in her Witch outfit. I haven't found a hat that will fit her, but I will.

Church: What Do You Like?

So, I'm moving into THAT emotional state. You know the one where you have to make a choice. Decide whether you stay or go.

Like or don't.

Do or Do Not.

In any other situation I would gather together my Pro's and Con's about the situation/thing. But I'm struggling to find anything that would fall into my Pro's category. Now, there simply can't be Nothing. Can there?

So, I would like your Pro's AND your Con's. (mostly pro's because that's what I'm missing)

Please let me know in my comments what it is you do or do not like about church. Why you are still there OR why you are not. It would be really helpful for me.

Illness I Just Can't Kick

I'm really tired of being achy, cold and having a runny nose. I've cleaned my house a bunch of times, and it just doesn't seem to help. I keep getting sick. It's only me though. No one else is getting sick.

Do you know if your immune system takes a LONG time to recover after having a baby? I have never been sick this many times in 6 weeks before. EVER. Hopefully I will kick it soon.

Help Needed. ASAP

My sleepless nights are getting worse, not better. Sweet Pea is no longer itching herself away, but she will just not sleep. For the last few nights I have been just letting her cry. Yes, she cries on and off for over an hour, falls to sleep, and then wakes up and does it all again.

What did you do to teach your kids to sleep through the night?

Keep in mind that we live in a studio apartment. She is in the same room as us and we have no where else to put her.

Conference Guilt? or Resolution?

We . . .
  • get our note pads out
  • gather our favorite snacks
  • get out Conference Bingo
  • guard our favorite, comfy chair
  • bring in the pillow and blanket
  • and settle down for a weekend of enlightenment
I LOVE Conference Weekend, but don't you ever just feel like you walk away from it all with this guilt? Heavy or light; makes no difference. Just guilt. You haven't been reading your scriptures, or praying as much as you should. You haven't attended the Temple for a while. You might have yelled at your kid a bit too much last week. You skipped out of Sunday School a few times since last conference. GUILT.

Sometimes I feel like General Conference is like New Year's. We make resolutions to improve in so many ways that ALL of them get lost in the days and months. Maybe that's why they do Conference twice a year. So, this Conference I am only deciding to work on one area.

Scripture Study. I'm going to do it again. I'm not sure what I'm going to read, but I will let you know.

What are your Conference Resolutions? or Guilt?

Friday Confessional with Glamazon

I sleepily confess:

  • my Sweet Pea is NOT sleeping through the night
  • I HATE teething
  • keep in mind, this is teething along with Mama Sickness
  • UGH!
  • I let her scream for 2.5 hours last night before I finally gave in and put her in bed with us
  • which means
  • I got NO sleep
  • losing weight is non-existent in my house
  • this frustrates me more than anything
  • all I want is to fit into my clothes again
  • is that really too much to ask?
  • speaking of too much to ask for,
  • a clean house
  • one that is simple, clean,
  • matching furniture,
  • smells good,
  • cleans itself.
  • Wouldn't that be nice?
  • A house to clean itself
  • Magic
  • I think the cold weather is getting to me
  • There isn't enough sunshine
  • Maybe it's just the basement apartment
  • I'm so glad it's Friday
  • Friday means,
  • help for the next 2 days.
  • Halleluia
