Happy Halloween 2015

I was up all night the night before (till 4am to be exact) doing the boys' costumes. Nothing like waiting till the last minute. Meh. 
I drew and cut out all the bones for Braz skeleton from faux leather-ish material and put mesh webbing on the back to iron them into his black pants and shirt. That took most of the night to do.
Beckett's leather SOA cut, I was trying to cut the vest out in one piece but it just wasn't working so I ended up hand sewing the back and front pieces together instead which probably turned out 10x better than it would have anyway. I used one of Beckett's shirts for sizing and such. I drew the patches on the white material I bought and then colored them in with black fabric marker. All by hand from a pic of Jax Teller I had (swoon). I cut them out and added the iron on webbing and stuck them on the vest. I ironed them all together the next morning and prayed everything fit and all the bones were in the appropriate places. Luckily everything worked out perfectly. Whew!
Brazos had a friend's costume/bowling birthday party in the afternoon at Grand Station so we loaded up as a family and went to do that. Only Braz dressed up of course because we knew Beckett's time in his costume would be limited due to his 2-year old tolerance level.
Hudson wore his skull sleeper though which looked pretty cool in the cosmo bowl black lights.

Ready to bowl!

Arcade time to finish the party. 

After the party, we all went home and took a family nap. We got all dressed up and headed out to a church carnival and met up with our friends.
Jax Teller with a bink. Hard core.

Little babystein.

Boys had a blast at the carnival. I didn't get any pics some how. Haha! After the carnival, we left to go to a neighborhood to trick or treat. Braz rode with our friends and their kids, who had to do some shuffling around of kids with other parents (yours, mine, ours situation) so we got to take Hudson and Beckett to a couple houses without the big kids for a few minutes.
Babystein chillin in his stroller. 

Happy Halloweeeen!


There was an actual officer having some fun with official police tape and chaulk outlines of a "dead" Buddy the Elf. 

Braz waiting on a balloon animal.

He loved it!!

Our friends niece was dressed up as the bride of Frankenstein so of course we HAD to get pics. So adorable.

Too much cuteness and what are the odds?!

I was digging in Beckett's candy and found this... Christmas comes earlier and earlier!! O.o

Halloween 2015 in the books and it was a GREAT one!

As Seen on Pinterest: Paper Towel Curls

I pinned this and put it under "Must Try" because seriously -- her hair looks SO CUTE and I want my hair to look like this:

And I can TOTALLY do that ya'll. So, I tried it.

Step 1: Start with wet hair. Me post workout shower [disregard the red face -- I look like my blood pressure is that of a 300 lb man in his late 40s really high after a run] with wet hair.

Step 2: Put mousse in hair, tie hair up in paper towel "curlers" rrrrreeeeaaaalllly tight. Sleep uncomfortably on back all night because said paper towel curlers are too tight. Wake up the next morning really excited -- you gonna be FABULOUS dah-ling [or so I thought].
I know I don't look excited but this is at 5:30 in the morning -- this is as excited as it gets.
Step 3: Take "curlers" out of hair and FREAK THE F OUT when you realize the curls are WWW***AAA***YYY too tight... worked a little TOO well. Maybe I need to just run my fingers through it. Yeah, I'll run my fingers …

Ramblings of a Panic Attack

I’m having a panic attack. These stupid meds are killing me. I hate them. Stick with it, stick with it, stick with it. I know it’s the meds. I just have to get through this and relax for a couple weeks. I hate this job. It’s not even that bad it’s just HORRIBLY boring. I don’t want to do this every day. I appreciate learning the process and gaining experience but it’s not what I like to do. I don’t even like accounting that much to begin with but there are aspects I like and I know it. The pay is killing me. I need money. I can’t continue to be completely broke before the first week of the month is over. Collections calls ringing all day. I’m applying to jobs like crazy. I’m trying so hard. I’m just going to keep pushing forward. Keep. Pushing. Forward. I hate that I wanted a life with Jason. That I was too blind to realize what he was. That I was ok with him even from the very beginning when I knew better. Why didn’t I want better things for myself? Seeing him makes me want to vomit.…

Jason's Graduation: Part II

Dr. Allen, DC
4/5 of our marriage has been spent working towards this day. To say we are excited would be a great understatement. I can't even put into words how excited/happy/scared/proud/relieved, etc, etc, etc we are. There just are no words. Jason has worked tirelessly towards this goal. Countless hours of studying. Sacrificing time with me and the kids. And all the work he put in advertising and recruiting patients into the clinic. Personal training early mornings and late nights to help makes ends meet.  And I think of all the sacrifice we've made as a family. Living in a townhouse and then a tiny apartment. I've been the primary provider and a mostly single parent during some stages. And a constant cheerleader and standing behind pushing. We've both been pushing uphill for what seems like forever towards this goal. And we've made it. Not to discount his hard work, because he was the one who really accomplished this goal but I like to think we accomplished this …
