I’m thankful for 37

Yay! It’s the last day of the month!! I’m happy for that, but I admit, I don’t like Halloween. Not in the slightest. I’m ready to see all the fake webs and skeletons gone. All the horror movies and gore go away for another year.

Its not my thing. Nor will it ever be. There was one time, when I was 16 or 17 that I got dresses up…as a dead hooker.

::proud moment in my life::

But in my meager teenage defense; I was a modest hooker. Thigh highs (that I realized 1/2 way through the night were on inside out..which made sense why they kept falling down), mini skirt and a tank, with my face painted ‘dead’ white.

What made the night perfect {in the sarcastic form} was on my way home, at a red light, my clutch fell out and my car wouldn’t move anymore. So there I was, barefoot, at midnight, pushing my car uphill alone; until some other teens ran over to help me push it into a parking lot. Since this was before the cell phone age (weird that I’m old enough to say…back in the day, before cell phones were around…) I ran in the gas station with the hot guy behind the counter that my friends and I had a crush on and used the payphone to call my dad.

I had already changed back into normal clothes at that point, have no fear.

And so concludes my one and only time I’ve dressed up for a holiday I don’t like.

I’m thankful for:

- Tabitha talking about a food blog that she loves and that I can now say, I love!! I made the crispy chicken and I loved it so much, I wrote it on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, oh and Pinterest. That’s how much I loved it!
I get the picture isn’t great, so make it yourself so you can understand the deliciousness that is, this chicken!

- time with my parents this weekend. I had business in their town that’s 2 hours away only to have it cancel an hour after I arrived, so I spent time with them eating Hobo Stew.

- all the support you’ve given me with working out. I did 4 out of 5 days last week and felt great. I’m looking forward to keeping it going.

- having an impromptu meet up with some great gals, Thursday night…that ended up making me late for a non-impromptu skype date w/some other great gals! It was a great Thursday night, to be sure.

Do you like Halloween? Are you a dresser upper?

This might be opening a door but if you could get rid of one holiday, which would it be? And why?

Pin It Now!

That chicken looks really good, girl. Is it the recipe that's been floating around on Pinterest?

Right there with you on Halloween. We "celebrated" it when I was smaller, and then my parents did some research on it and had a change of heart. I'm glad, because I never really liked halloween. And while it's not a very popular opinion, I also really don't like how Christians try to make it holy. You know, people argue that Easter and Christmas have pagan roots, but at least it's about celebrating Jesus. I can't find one way Jesus is celebrated in Halloween. And call it All Saints Day or whatever, but I don't worship and celebrate saints. BUT I DIGRESS. ;)

I love Halloween and I am usually a dresser upper, but this year, in typical mom fashion, I only have a costume for Davis and none for myself!

If I could get rid of one holiday, I think it would be St. Patrick's day... no particular reason, it's just my least favorite and the one I least celebrate.

Halloween... I'm all for having an excuse to eat chocolate all day long. And I confess I love all those vintage decorations. I guess I like Halloween in the Charlie Brown sorta way, not the gore and haunted house stuff. Some years, like this one though, I can't wait for it to be over with, because I'm really looking forward to Thanksgiving and Christmas.

YAY for family time this weekend! :)

I'm not a fan of Halloween! Used to be but not currently. Maybe when I have kids one day I'll get back into it!

not too much of a halloween fan either. the stress of having a creative costume gets to me!

i do love the trick or treaters though. praying for more than last year tonight :)

I guess being a chronic singleton, I'd have to get rid of Valentine's Day. Haha, what a buzzkill I am!!!

I wish I could also get rid of the commercialisation (I think I just made that word up!) of Christmas. It's just so tacky! I hate seeing Christmas decorations up in shopping malls already. I hate being over Christmas before it arrives.

Oh. My. Gosh. I totally remember you being a dead hooker! In fact, I believe there are pictures of that night. Now I'm struggling to remember the gas station and who's crush worked there, etc. Details :-)
