Halloween #TBT

Hello again, two days in a row. That's right. Proud.

As I'm perusing the internets this slow work morning, I'm a little sad to be a home office-er today. I'm really missing the fun that is costume, candy and treats on an adult work Halloween Thursday. The Ginger and I have some festivity planned for tonight, but I want to have fun RIGHT NOW. 

He left home this morning pre-giggling at what he perceives as the funniest hat ever:

I'll leave the determination whether it's the "funniest ever" up to you.

Perusing for a good #TBT for Instagram, I enjoyed my little walk down Halloween memory lane... Here are some gems:

A fire man woman

This was sophomore year of college and I bought this costume at Walgreens hours before the party. Not my best work.

(2006 is inexplicably missing. I literally have NO idea what happened to that one, and now I can't even think of what I was. Either it sucked or was epic.)

Playboy Bunny

Honestly, I wish I could tell ya what I was thinking. Well, I was thinking I was skinny enough to wear that. Weird.

Alice in Wonderland

This was a fun one, except obviously I got red drank all over it once I got to the bars. Didn't get the rental deposit back on that dude. #typical

Tweedle Dee

That was the year all of my friends dressed sexy and classy and I wore high-waisted fupa sweatpants. God knows I was more comfy. Yikes.

German Beer Girl

This one is also a relic of waistelines past. The notice this dress has a boob shelf that pops over the bodice part. Weird, weird feeling. Also, pigtails, you'll never otherwise catch me in pigtails.

Planet Earth

My proudest costume work to date. I made a glittery replica of the continents on my body and had space/stars on my arms and legs. Also, thats the moon on my head. I dare you to find an excuse to put a moon on your head. Word to the wise, I'm still picking green glitter out of weird places after this one. Not kidding.

Olive Oyl (and Popeye)

Not a great photo, but fun costume. I love wearing a wig on occasion. Also, if you ever decide to drink beer out of a spinach can, don't. It will taste like spinach.

Happy Happy Halloween!

Some Things Never Change

Like me, for example.

Hello all. I'm rejoining the blog world... or trying. I've fallen off the bloggy wagon these last few months and apparently banged my head. HARD. Something happened while I was away...

Everyone and their mom (well maybe not the moms) are having babies. Suddenly, they've popped up everywhere. Don't get me wrong, a couple of my best friends have recently added little precious angels to their brood, and those ones I love. It's all the random reminders in the social media world that make cringe a little.

Take Pinterest for example. I revisited that dude this afternoon looking for some "Pin-spiration" to get back up on that bloggy horse and this is what I found:

One is actually about breastfeeding. I can barely wrap my head around that whole thing, btw.

Now, I'm not done with Pinterest, or all these mommys by any means, but come on people. I need more piglets, puppies and pies here.

(Cue existential crisis about how I'm not evolving and still just want all the puppies and pies in the world.)

As a quick aside, yesterday I got to enjoy a lovely lunch with one of my BFFs and her new little dreamboat of a daughter:

I'd take a bullet for that kid ... and am excited to see the kind of person she becomes. And she's good at hugs, despite having tiny arms and a neck that needs holding.

My head is all wonky about this baby topic. Is that the infamous "biological clock" I've always heard of? It can't be, right?

I don't know what I'm saying. I guess I just decided to return to the internet all of a sudden and got reminded of what I already know... people grow up.

I guess in my own way I am too, but for now, if you need me, I'll be the one binge watching premium cable shows, baking things that make me dissatisfied with my waistline and figuring out new and creative gifts for new mommys (seems like I need to just ride this wave). That lucky Ginger.

PS: I've got some post ideas in by back pocket about all the aforementioned pastimes. Get excited.

Missed you.
