Happy Halloween!!!
Since I am not dressing up today I think I will reminisce
with some pictures of Halloweens from the past...
This was not very creative at all and very last minute -
all they had left at the store was a baseball player....LAME
This year I went to a party as a Mafia woman...
and this was my friend the "Dirty Cowboy" 
and let me just tell you that YES that is a thong he is wearing....
and NO I don't have a pic of the backview!

This was the year of the slutty beer wench....very short...very slutty.

Me and my sisters @ a party a couple years ago
I was an 80's groupie
Brittney was Baby from Dirty Dancing
Shann was Jessica Rabbit
And this was my hubby....
there really are no words to describe these photos...


Happy Halloween!!!

11 Random Things About Lil' Ole ME:
1. I do my grocery shopping online....I know this may seem super lazy, but if my local grocery store offers curbside pickup for NO extra charge why wouldn't I take advantage of that?!
2. My least favorite household chore = folding laundry...I'd rather clean the toilet than fold my clothes.
3. Even though I am 32 years old...I still get carded everywhere I go....I am hoping this lasts forever!
4. I wear flip flops all year round - I live in New England and even when the snow is coming down I refuse to put my flops away :)

7. I survived Hurricane Sandy with a bottle of wine & chicken quesadillas.

Jennifer's Questions for ME:
If you could trade lives with anyone in the world, who would it be and why?
Honestly, this answer may sound cheesy, but I wouldn't want to trade with anyone. My life is pretty great these days and I wouldn't trade it for anything!
What is your favorite holiday and why?
CHRISTMAS!!! When I was younger I was always so excited to open all MY presents but now that I have a daughter of my own I am looking forward to stuffing her stocking, helping her unwrap her presents under the tree, & lying to her for the next 10 - 13 years about a fat man in a red suit who stuffs himself down our chimney - why were we all so gulliable?
Do you have any siblings and what is your relationship like?
YES I do! I have two younger sisters and we are more like best friends than sisters. Luckily we all live within 15 minutes of each other and spend lots of time together - I consider myself very lucky to have such a wonderful relationship with my siblings.
What is your favorite comfort food? 
Macaroni & Cheese is a favorite mmmmmm!
If you could travel to anywhere in the world, where would it be?
I would love to take a trip to Santa Maria which is an island in the Azores off the coast of Portugal - my husband's family is from there and he used to spend summers there as a young boy. His family still owns a home there so I am looking forward to visting it when my daughter is older.
What TV show best describes your life? (old or new) 
King of Queens - my hubby reminds me of Doug Heffernan sometimes because of his love of food and sometimes when I boss him around he calls me Carrie :)
Do you still have any friends that you knew when you were a kid?
My cousin Melissa was my best friend growing up & we are still BFF's today :)
Do you name your car? If so, what is it?
Yes I always name my cars -  Mimi is the name of my SUV.
If you weren't blogging, what would you do with your time?
I don't have much time to blog with a new baby at home so I try to find time when she is napping or after she's gone to bed at night to catch up on my blogging. Most of my time is dedicated to taking care of her.
Let's say plastic surgery was very affordable, would you get any?
Sure, why not! We all have areas we wouldn't mind improving I'm sure...
What is your ideal way to spend New Years Eve?
A nice dinner out, a bottle of champage, and the ones you love.

Guilty pleasure?
Twizzlers mmmmm !
PC or Mac?
I love my iPhone. I love my iPad. But I am all about my PC.
If you could pack up, move and restart your life anywhere in the world, where and why?

Fun Photo Fridays

Hello everyone!
I had a busy morning....
inspection sticker for my car
lunch with my dad & my princess
 and then a flu shot
so that's why I'm posting a little later than usual.
Today I am linking up for
Fun Photo Friday :)

Page: Twenty-Two
Today I would love to jump back into this photo:
This was taken after a long day of tailgating at a country concert with
 my BFF Melissa, her husband Alan, and my hubby.
There's nothing like an outdoor summer concert.

Eff, Marry, Kill...

This has got to be my favorite link up so far!
I am going to try my first Eff, Marry, Kill with

I decided to give myself a real challenge
and I am even a little disgusted at myself for what I am about to type...
 but here goes!
Eff: Kramer
Marry: Jerry
Kill: George
EFFKramer: I know, I know !!!! You are thinking I obviously need help, but it's not like these were easy choices! I can't choose George - he eats sandwiches in bed & I have a big issue with crumbs in my sheets. So the obvious choice was Kramer - it's just one night, right?
Marry: Jerry: Yes he can be annoying.....Yes he isn't my type.....Yes he has bad hair, but I could never have baby Kramers and George killed his fiance with poisonous wedding invitation envelopes so obviously he's out !
Kill: George: Sorry George but I'd have to take you out. You have nothing to offer, you make me sick to look at and you still live with your must go!
I'd love to hear your choices but I totally understand if you are too embarrassed to admit your answers :)

Fun Photo Friday !!!

Today I am linking up with Shann @ Page Twenty-Two
a.k.a. lil' sis

Page: Twenty-Two
If I could jump back into any photo today it would be this one:
This was taken on the second night of our honeymoon in Aruba :)
Today is gloomy......dark........rainy......& BORING
I would give anything to be toasting with a glass of champagne,
drinking a bottle of wine,
and going for a late night swim on the beach
instead of waiting for the rain to stop so I can go get my trash barrels at the end of my driveway.
Oh well.
Happy Friday :)

I Can't Live Without You

Last night my iphone decided to stop allowing me to make calls
which is kind of an important feature of a cell phone, don't you think?
So that got me thinking....
What did people do before cell phones?
 What other products do I depend on SO much that I can't live a day without them?
This is what I came up with :
obviously I can't live without my iphone!
Within 5 minutes of its death I was on the land line (which I've never actually used before tonight)
 contacting local cell phone stores to check thier inventory of apple products.
* Luckily my hubby was able to bring it back to life somehow *
I am trying to figure out how my great-grandmother got ready for a date
without one of these wonderful products.
Luckily someone came to their senses in 1912 and invented this amazing
tool that I use every day of my life.

You guys make my hair feel pretty
and I will be making a trip to Target soon for more of you!
Can you imagine living in a world where we would have to wake up....
make a WHOLE pot of coffee and wait  for it to brew?
Thank you Mark Zuckerberg for creating something so addicting that we are all guilty of
using on a hourly daily basis...
It's crazy to imagine how different our life would be if we were born in a different era:
This would be a typical Saturday night for us

Oh How Pinteresting !

Although my daughter's first birthday is still 2 months away
 I have already been planning this day in my head for months.
So today I am linking up to show you some of my favorite party ideas
for Princess Madyson's "Pretty in Pink" 1st Birthday Party !

Madyson's birthday is 3 days before Christmas and I didn't want her party to be overshadowed by the holiday season and all the Christmas decor in my house, so her special day is going to be an explosion of PINK & all things g-i-r-l-y!

Just What I needed :)

My husband knows me so well :)
After a long day of tending to a baby with a stuffy nose
 he brought me home something SO wonderful & SO delicious.
Something that I didn't even know existed......
Halloween Cadbury Eggs!
Not that I need another season where these scrumptious
eggs sit at the counter of every store I shop in....
but they were a nice surprise to accompany my
Dunkin Donuts Pumpkin Spice coffee that he brought with it :)
Thanks hubby... I really needed those !
Now back to my sick little princess..

What is up with Christina's boobs?
I know I am not the only person tuning into The Voice each week and wondering
what exactly is going on in that bra of hers?
I love Christina
& who doesn't secretly know every word to
Genie in a Bottle?
But come on....... !!!
I think they need to give her boobs a buzzer & let them be the 4th judge!
While watching this week, my hubby must have said
"I wish she would just put a shirt on"
at least 10 times.
It's not that they aren't large....cuz they are.
They are just odd to look at.

I think this picture says it all:
Um, watchya lookin' at there, Hil? Christina Aguilera's boobs sure are getting a lot of attention these days! Hillary Clinton posed with the singer during an awkward photo op at the McGovern Awards at the U.S. Department of State on Oct. 3, 2012

Also, why wasn't I informed that wearing see-through lace
with NO bra was the cool thing to do these days?
Apparently showing some nips out on the town is the new norm...
If you wanna read more about socialite Brittany Gastineau and her
nips you can here.

I think I'll just get myself a pair of these ...
Have a FABULOUS Friday !


Oh, How Pinteresting !

It's a dreary, dark, & cold Wednesday over here in Beantown
 and the weather isn't inspiring me to write an interesting post so let's link up instead!

Mmmmm Chicken & Pepper Jack Flatbread Pizza

Smore's In a cup!
