Happy Halloween, or is it?

FACT: I do not like Halloween.  There, I said it.  To be honest, it's probably the number one holiday of the year I could do without.  Bring on the Thanksgiving Turkey, Christmas time with the carols, even Memorial Day and Labor Day get my love, but it just is not happening with Halloween.  Maybe it's the fact that I absolutely HATE scary movies and I hate when people jump out to scare me.  I think it is so rude and just mean!

It might have started in college, where everyone got into comedic, sexy, ironic costumes when I probably wanted to join them on the festivities, however, I always ended up with an exam, midterm, some project due the day or coming days after Halloween.  Just a dedicated Math nerd. And honestly who wants to go out with limited clothes on when it's pretty cold out??  I'd rather be nice in warm in a sweater and jeans thankyouverymuch.

Still after graduation the dislike continues.  I don't feel the urge to dress up tonight, but me and the fiance DID go to a Halloween party this weekend where we were VERY decked out.  However it was more a beer tasting good food party, much more my speed, and I wore my regular clothes, just dresss up with some facepaint!  Hello not being cold!!

I'll be at home tonight handing out candy to the kiddos in my jeans and sweater NOT scaring the babies.  Fiance will be helping out with his sister and brother in laws haunted house(apparently it's optional, you can still do the traditional route of knocking at the door and get candy that way)

I found this video on breaking the stigma of women(and their costumes) but it stops before slut-shaming(which I'm typically very guilty of).

I sound like a brat, but just bring on my birthday and Turkey day! YUM!

I'm Baaaack

Or at least I hope I am.

Lots have happened in the past few months that maybe I'll hit on in the coming posts.  I'd like to acknowledge that when i signed into blogger that I had over 2500 blog hits and with only 10 posts, I'd say thats a WTF moment.  So thanks to the mom and fiance who keeps checking in I guess.  A little about what I've been doing since the big engagement:
  1. As expected I've been planning a wedding(ugh).  It's not all pintrest-y funn-ess.  Talk about major first time compromises, opening major can-of-worms with weird extended family dynamics that one needs to deal with, and expenses, and color schemes, and questions, and yadda yadda, I DON'T CARE.  At this point, we don't have colors, we are just doing what we want and hoping it comes together at the end and hopefully not everyone hates us.  And if they do, well, we will at least be married.  Everyone should just be happy I didn't just get eloped, it would have been a lot cheaper ;)
  2. Moving in the the fiance. Amazing and a lot of work at the same time.
  3. Fiance needs a shorter nickname.
  4. I'm thinking about redirecting this blog.  I've done a little work around the house but I'm a lot more restricted on the DIY things because see (1), compromise and wedding planning.  And I'd like to make sure we can get through a wedding before we want to kill each other with changing too much about his house.  Ah well.  So I guess this is going to turn into more of a live journal thig.  I've been reading more and more comedy blogs, so maybe I'll be inspired!  Hopefully this won't turn into a complaining about wedding planning post because honestly, I'm expecting it to get better once all the vendors are booked.  It can't get any worse, right??
  5. I've been reading and crocheting.
  6. I instantly feel older by saying I've been reading, crocheting, and planning a wedding.
  7. Sadly, Rosie died :'(
And now I'll leave you with a lovely engagement picture that wedding industry has convinced us that we now need in order to have a successful marriage.  Until next time!
