I finally got around to carving the pumpkins. I'm kind of a snob about it. I like being really creative, but this year the kids wanted to use the patterns that came with the carving kit. I did get them to at least clean the guts out themselves!
Of course Adam wanted the skull, and Kat wanted the cute Goblin. Alex just wanted his name in the side!
For dinner we I made a candlelight dinner. Thanks to Women's Day Magazine who suggested it!
And at school today the kids were supposed to dress up as characters from their favorite books. I think we did pretty well! Introducing Calvin & Hobbes and Laura Ingalls!

New Kids on the Block- The wait was worth it!

Ok I am just too tired to post. My head is ringing my voice is shot and my legs hurt from jumping up and down too much! But here are the highlights:
1. Natasha Beddingfield opened for NKOTB and she signed autograpghs after. I got to meet here and was all like "I lived in Europe and have been a fan for years, thanks for everything!" I was totally starstruck and shaking afterwards. Also I know I sounded stupid.
2. Courtney and I screamed and jumped around like we were 13 and it was magnificent.
3. We rushed the barriers when they were in the crowed and totally got away with it for like 5 minutes. I swear Jonathan saw us and thought we were hot.
4. Jordan took off his shirt and looked amazing. That's all I have to say. No one missed the rat tail.
5. I could've stayed all night.

Where the Blonds are....

So we all knew this day was coming. Adam was starting to complain that his neck was too hot and so we agreed to get his beautiful hair cut. I asked him who's hair he liked and he said Troy from High School Musical. So we went online and found this picture:
So we printed it out and took it to our local quick cuts. I hate that place cause they really boss me around but it is the only place that does it so fast for so cheap! So this is what we started with:Ans here he is now:

Not only is he incredibly handsome but he does look really grown up. She cut it too short but I know it is going to grow out great. She cut it with a razor. Adam was in charge of the whole thing and now puts pomade in his hair! Don't you love his curls?? 2016 watch out! Adam will have a drivers license and license to date!

It's too late she has already gone feral

Let's start off by saying I am very grateful for Jason's new gig with FEMA. It is such a blessing to us. He is currently in Baton Rouge and will most likely be headed up to Chicago to address the flooding there. So I have been bach-ing it for 5 days and it looks like we will have a brief Jason sighting tomorrow night and then it is so long for 3 weeks! But if the result of the separation is that our debts get paid off we shouldn't complain right? But the short term result is that I am morphing into my natural state. As my audience knows Jason likes to maintain his environment at a certain level and we have come to a treaty over the years. But I have to admit things are starting to slide.... Here is the nest where I now sleep:
And the sexy choice of evening wear (shut up it's vintage!):

And the juice that no one likes but me (yes it's juice)
And last of all my new bedroom companion:
Thank goodness for prime time and amazing girlfriends who are always up for a party! Here's to you J-dog and C-note!
