Another Halloween that wasn't

We survived Sandy. We lost power on Monday night for 2 hrs. We ate by lantern light. We haven't had the internet or landline phone till 7:30 tonight. No school so far this week, but there will be school tomorrow. They also postponed Trick or Treat again for the 2nd year in a row (last year we had a freak snowstorm & lost power), so we will be Trick or treating this Saturday night. Our neighbors pass out shots for the adults. We're trying to decide what we are going to pass out. Probably not shots. Also 1 of our neighbors will be doing hayrides around the neighborhood. Our girl's weekend away in VT scrapbooking has also been postponed. I'm so bummed out. I packed up some of my scrapping stuff yesterday since we were stuck in the house all day. We might go Nov 17th weekend. We got out today. Tara had dance class. Only 3 girls showed up for dance (they did get to wear their costumes) & they got to just jump around & be silly.

 I also had my hair done today. It was really nice to get out. I hope everyone is safe & has their power back on.

Mommy & Me Monday

Today we went to Target & Michaels in the storm (it was just raining & a bit windy). I wanted to get some smashbook stuff & we needed bread & water & a few other things. Hoping we don't lose power.

Halloween party

We went to a Halloween party last night. No costumes though. I thought it would be kind of fun to dress up. Hubby wouldn't anyway. Maybe some year. My friend has a beautiful house & she did an awesome job decorating it.

This was 1 of the tables decorated. Mostly with appetizers & other foods. She had another table in the kitchen with desserts.

 
Above her hutch in her dining room. I loved the purple lights. She also had hot pink lights.

Witch's potion wine.


Now we are getting ready for the hurricane. No school tomorrow. Not sure if Halloween will be postponed again this year (last year we had a snowstorm & they had to postpone Halloween till November because we lost power). I'm hoping to maybe get out to the store. I've been wanting to get to Target to get some scrapbooking stuff & we need some food. We don't want to go food shopping if we might lose power.

Nail Files. Week #43

I'm not much of an orange or yellow person, so this is the best that I can do with those colors. The orange/peach is The Icing Falling for You, yellow is Sally Hansen Hard as nails in Hard lemonade, the white is Pure Ice in Platinum & the black is The Icing in Twilight. I might add a glow in the dark clear coat over them.

Just like her Mom

She is very moody
She loves music
People call her quiet/shy (they called me both when I was a kid, but I actually talked to adults)
She has lots of friends
She is a Cancer (Moonchild)
She hates when people can't hear her (it's 1 of my pet peeves)
She worries a lot (Lately about earthquakes, since we had 1 a few weeks ago. We missed it because we were driving in the car. Also fires, in school they've been having lots of practice fire drills. She's afraid to go to sleep now).
She will be a Brownie just like me.

 
 This a a photo of myself when I was a Brownie (I was around 5 or 6)

New photo book

Yesterday I went to a craft fair & I bought this handmade album. I thought it was kind of different. This is the cover.

This is the inside.
 
Trying to figure out how I am going to add the photos & embellishments. I got Tara a Hello Kitty 1.

New England minute~Patriot's Place

Today we went to Patriot's place in Foxboro, MA. I've never been to Gilette stadium. We went to eat & hang out. Not for a game or anything. We got to see the band Three Days Grace do a free outdoor concert.

I was going through magazine withdrawel today (even though I still have a few magazines to look at), so I stopped at the library & checked out a bunch of mags. Luckily I have 2 weeks before I have to return them.

Which glasses should I choose?

I am planning on geting new glasses soon. I HATE glasses & think every pair looks horrible on me. I got my 1st pair of glasses when I was 10. I wore them until I turned 15 & then I got contacts. Contacts haven't always been my friend. They've annoyed me so much over the years. I suffered wearing them because I know how horrible I look in glasses. My high school graduation was outside in the sun & my eyes were watering so bad, that I wore sunglasses getting my diploma. I was the only 1 with sunglasses on, but it was better than wearing glasses. They also bothering my nose (I have a mark when I wear them), they bother behind my ears & they're always dirty. My daughter puts her fingers all over them. I also have astigmatisms in both eyes & have been trying out different contacts. I pretty much can't see anymore with glasses or contacts. I wear reading glasses with my contacts on, but things are still blurry. So I need your help (if anyone is willing to give me their opinion). I had the receptionist lady, Laurie take these photos. When I tried them on in the store I really liked #1, but now that I look at them in the photos I think I like #2 better. I showed the pics to my hubby & he said he didn't like either (big help). I'm hoping to maybe bring him in & show him the glasses in person, but he gets out of work so late & they close earlier & they don't open till 11:00.

Easy Canvas prints review

Easy Canvas Prints

I recently received a photo on canvas from Easy Canvas Prints. They have tons of Photos on Canvas to chose from. Some pre-made art canvas' & you can also use your own photos. They have lots of sizes & styles to choose from. I chose the mirror image.

 
I took this photo with my Ipod touch, so the quality isn't all that great. The face is a little fuzzy. It came out very cute. Right now we have it on our mantel, but eventually we will put it on our bedroom wall. I've been wanting to do a gallery wall. This will be the main photo & we will add photos around it. I can't wait for everyone to see it.
They also have a few sister sites if you are looking for Car Magnets,
Cheap Signs or Banners.
