A Spooktacular Halloween

If you know Jordan and I, you know we absolutely love Halloween. Next to Christmas, it is our favorite Holiday. We attended our first Halloween party together in October 1998 and since then, we have had some fabulous costumes. If you look at my album on Facebook, you can see our past Halloween costumes. The all time favorite costume has to be KISS and the second favorite is Rock Horror. We haven't had a spectacular idea since 2004. We have had creative costumes, just not award winning.

The party we go to has a costume contest and knowing how competitive I am, you know like to win. The contest has two categories; best couple and best single. All contestants are vying for the $25 gift card to somewhere. We really don't care where, we just want to win! Each year, the costume choice is harder and the competition gets tougher. Last year, we went as Obama and Palin. My costume was complete with a Caribou Barbie pendent; some people asked me who Caribou Barbie was and why I was in camo. They didn't get it. It was cute, showed our political sides, but wasn't an award winner. So my days of making a political statement at Halloween parties are over. I want to look cute. I want to win!

So, here's the deal. I have several okay ideas. I need your help. Please look at the poll on my Blog and vote for the best costume idea. If you have a better idea, e-mail me. I'm open and not feeling very creative these days. I can use all the help I can get! I'll let you know the results and what we decide.

To Blog or not to Blog?

That is the question.....if everyone is doing it, then so shall I! I thought I would try this new thing (or at least new to me) called blogging. My friend has a really cool blog and I didn't want a page until I saw hers. I thought, If she has one, then I want one. I know, I can be competitive, but I think I just admire her for having one. She has a household full of kids, like I do, and I thought if she can, I can. So, here it is. My first attempt to blog!

As I write this, I feel like Carrie Bradshaw with quite a few differences. Rather than write about the single life in NYC, I'm writing about married life in this patch of a town called Bakersfield. Rather than a fabulous job as a writer, I'm as stay-at-home mom with four little blessings. Carrie and I do have a few things in common, though. We both love fashion, passion and have an addiction to designer high heels..........and in the end, we both found our Mr. Big; while her story has ended, or, at least for know, mine is just beginning! I hope you like my blog!
