Today is BPOH day!

Today’s the day we’ll be posting our pictures of our homes all decked out for Halloween! This is just your little reminder. I’ve got to take Molly to get her anal glands expressed (FUN!) and get my car inspected. Then I’ll be home to post all the links and whatnot. So leave me a comment if you plan on participating! I can’t wait to see what you’ve got going on!

Like a Boy Scout

I like to be prepared. So it’s that time of year again y’all. Christmas card season. If you received a card (and an adorable puggie pic) last year, then you can bet you’ll get one again this year. If you didn’t, but you’d like to, please email your address to heyshanny at gmail dot com. And if I’m not on your list (the horror!!!) and you think I should be (well, of course) then please add me. And let me know if I need to email my address to you.
Now, off to check out this year’s Christmas stamp (did I just give away how much of a mail geek I am?).

On a Disney cruise!  So next Fall you will find us sailing away to Castaway Cay for Lisa & Pete’s beach wedding.  It’s going to be so beautiful and so fun!  Cool bonus for me, the Flying Dutchman ship from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies is anchored in the harbor at Castaway Cay so I’ll get to see it in real life.  And you know how I looove pirates!

Late bloomer

It took me just over 34 years but I finally like dill pickles.dill-pickles.jpeg I’ve been working my way up to eating a dill pickle on it’s own, straight from the jar. I like dill. I like cucumbers. I even like sweet pickles. But the dill pickle scared me. I started with deep fried pickles with ranch dressing. Hey, this is the South, we’d eat our shoe laces if we could fry em up and serve em with a good dipping sauce. Then I moved on to a couple of slices on a burger. I survived. Then the other night Jon was eating some baby dills straight out of the jar. I smelled them first, not bad. Then he speared one for me on his fork and handed it over. I looked at it and worked up my nerve. Just as I was about to take my first bite CSP asked “Well, can I at least have my fork back?” Then I ate it. And it was good.
So now, me, I’m a pickle eater. I feel more grown up now. Next hurdle: asparagus.

Boo to you

Do you Boo? They Boo in my Mom’s neighborhood and I thought I would start it in my neighborhood. So I went to the store and bought treat bags, candy, Halloweenie toy thingies like plastic spiders & skeleton straws, some Dollar Store crayons and play dough and sparkly bag filler. Boo Bag inside view I put it all together then found a cute poem on the internet to use. I drew a ghost and wrote the poem inside him. Boo Bag poem You can print the poems out on your printer too, but I was only making 4 so I just wrote them out. Then I taped the ghost to some construction paper, folded it to make it into a card, wrote Happy Halloween on the outside and sealed it with a sticker. I poked a hole through the top and tied the cards to the bags. Boo Bags
Now I’m going to go deliver them to 4 random neighbors and hope they keep Boo on the run!

Halloween BPOH!

Happy Halloween!
I will be hosting another edition of Bloggy Parade of Homes.  This time we’ll be posting photos of our Halloween decorations inside and outside of our homes.  Everyone seemed to enjoy the Christmas & Halloween editions last year so we’re going for a repeat performance!
If you would like to participate, please let me know via email or comment prior to posting day, Tuesday, October 30.  OR post your pics on Tuesday, October 30th then leave me a comment letting me know you participated and I’ll add you to the link list on my main page.
Thank you & I’m looking forward to checking out everyone’s spooktacular haunts!

Slicing & Dicing

When I got home from Florida there were 11 Pampered Chef boxes for me to sort through. Quite a few of them contained my free goodies that I earned by doing the party. We also were able to buy cookware at 60% off! Woohoo! It’s so pretty and cleans up so easy peasy!My new Pampered Chef cookware!
The other slicing and dicing that’s been going on happened on my face! I had to have a cyst removed. UGH. CSP went with me and was supposed to hold my hand. He spent most of his time in the corner reading People magazine! Look at my pitiful puffed up red & white face: Post Face Slice & Dice And here’s the thing he cut out of me.The thing my DR. removed from my cheek.It’s like my face was saying “Hey, why do your girlie bits get to have all the fun? Slice me up too!”
