Hairy & Scary

I’m a VAMPIRE!!!! Har..har..har…
No, not really.
You can go to Picnik.com right now and “vampire” yourself
I had to try this out πŸ™‚
The photos above are the many years of different hairstyles I’ve had. Some of them are down right frightening! Can you pick out the Afro picture above? I will never EVER cut my hair short again…and I am sure you can see why! I would love to see all you gal’s hairstyles over the years!

Some of you asked about my curls in the last few pictures. I use a curling iron called a Ginalli. It has no barrel on it and gets super hot like a Chi iron. I LOVE IT!

Look who found himself in the mirror this morning!
This little dude has been keeping us up with blood curdling screams in the night…needless to say I am a zombie lately! I’m using a lot of scary words in this post! ha..ha..
I don’t like how Blogger puts a limit on how many people you can follow! I try to follow new people’s blogs and it won’t let me anymore! POO! Does anyone know why Blogger does this? I hope you don’t take offense if I can’t follow your blog…but if you leave me comments I always click and it brings me back to your blog so we can stay in touch….stupid Blogger!
Tomorrow is FRIDAY!!!! Woohoo!!!!

Connor’s New Hat

This is Connor’s new hat. I ordered it from Zulily last week for $11.00. Of course we had to have a photo shoot πŸ™‚ Bless his heart…the Lord knew I needed a cooperative baby when it comes to taking photos.

I also busted out the Kitchenaid mixer. The one I begged for….I begged for this thing for two whole years. Terence says it just collects dust on the counter…I can’t disagree with him. Anyways, I was channelling my inner “Martha” last night and baked some pumpkin bread. It was really good and moist, the only thing I would do next time is add more spice!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FALL FOOD???

Fall Weekend

Yes – The title of this post is “Fall Weekend” because it’s FINALLY starting to feel like fall in the great state of Texas!!! I’m so excited and there are a bunch of things I’m really looking forward to doing this fall.
I want to carve a pumpkin, take Connor trick-or-treating, and I would also like to go to the Texas State Fair because I have never been before. I have got to try all that fried food!

Our weekend wasn’t too exciting. We caught up on some shows on our DVR. I am so excited we actually have good TV again πŸ™‚ We pretty much just spent time together as a family and enjoyed the great weather.
Connor’s Nannie gave him this frog for the bathtub, but he LOVES to suck on the legs. He loves them so much that after I fed him his bottle Saturday morning he croaked because he stuck the legs too far down his mouth! He threw up everywhere….ick!

While we were out and about I found the new Bakerella cookbook
“Cake Pops”
This book is amazing and has such great photos

Look at these OWL cake pops!!!!

He’s on the move…world look out!!!
He’s been inch worming around all over the place

We also had dinner with Connor’s Great Granddaddy Saturday night and Grandma Nell πŸ™‚
We love them so much & are so blessed to have them in our lives!

Of course the weekend involved Starbucks ya’ll!
The Starbucks Diva wall is still going strong!

Speaking of coffee, in an effort to save a buck….
Terence and I got a Nespresso machine this weekend and we LOVE it!
You just put the little tabs in there and bada bing = espresso!!!
AND A WHOLE LOT CHEAPER THAN STARBUCKS!!!!
Of course I will still visit my fave coffee joint, but in these sad economical times I have to look for ways to save and still get my jump start in the morning. We went and purchased the vanilla syrup and caramel syrup from Starbucks, so it pretty much tastes exactly like the drink I get at Starbucks πŸ™‚
These are all the different flavors of espresso

Also wanted to mention a new movie I am excited to see in 2011!
