All Halloweenied Out

Music Playlist at MixPod.com

I don't know about you, but I keep thinking that Halloween should be over by now.  I have been in Halloween mode for like three weeks now.  First we had our kids Halloween party last week, Brielle had her Halloween day care party on Thursday, the boys had their school Halloween party on Friday and Pat and I attended the Halloween party of a dear friend of mine's house last night.  (By the way, Andy, Ave and Pro--so good to hang!)

While I am stoked to trick or treat with my little ones tomorrow night, I can't help but feel anxious to get this holiday past us and move on to my favorite holiday of all time --- Christmas!  I love Christmas.  Tuesday I feel justified in playing my Bing Crosby holiday playlist to my heart's content and gearing up for the most wonderful time of the year!

Something else that is joyous is a busy, productive and super fun Saturday followed by a less than busy, but equally productive Sunday. 

Yesterday started pretty early when I got up, picked up Kaden from a sleepover, dropped him off at my mom's house to hang out with her, took complete advantage of ARC's half off sale, picked up Pat's best friend's daughter Haley and headed down to Denver for our sewing class.

Sewing class you say?  Why, yes, yes I did.  I finally get to use my sewing machine that I got for Mother's Day.  We made the cutest little tote bag yesterday and the instructor was adorable, personable, knowledgeable and very helpful.  If you are in the Denver area and have been wanting to learn how to sew, hit up Aurora at Fabric Bliss.  You will not be disappointed. 

I was so thrilled that I actually figured out how to (at a very amateur level, but nonetheless) use the sewing machine, that I took that heap of mending I had in my closet and went to town this morning.  Now, I still am not 100% on how to thread my machine, so they all ended up with light blue thread, but hey, they are mended.  

Also, I got Goldilocks all shined up, inside and out.  She was in dire need of a good lovin treatment.  Especially since I need to chisel off a bunch of gunk just to get my renewal stickers on my plates.

Because I wanted to do a lot of low key lounging today (cleaning out the car, nursing exhaustion from partying until the wee hours, catching up on my blog, taking a really long bath and playing with my closet), I chose something comfortable.  But I also knew I would be out and about a bit, so I wanted something that didn't say "this is what a two drink hangover looks like."

Not only did I want something comfy yet stylish, I also did not feel like doing my hair.  Pat and I went as Sandra D and John Travolta from Grease to the party last night and I had about 1568 gallons of hairspray in my hair so getting it out this morning was a chore.  Probably would have also helped if I didn't sit in the bath for over an hour and let it air dry.
