Random Friday Thoughts

For some reason I couldn't fall asleep last night, so I am too tired to come up with a cohesive post. but after not posting yesterday- I couldn't leave you hanging!

- Tomorrow I am taking the dukes for an all day Belly-Dance fest (outdoor, in the rain it's looking) in Round Lake IL. Weee...? I am excited for her to finally see me dance and I think she will have a blast seeing everyone in all the costumes. I doubt I will be able to resist buying her something....

- Husband and I ask Miss D nearly every day what she wants to be for Halloween. The answers have been so far: A Monkey (her costume from last year), a dragon (a costume we saw in costco) and macaroni and cheese. I admit that last one was my suggestion. But then she and I got to discussing how we could make it. She suggested we make a bowl out of paper. And when I asked her what to use for macaroni she said "tape". Which is an awesome idea! We'll see how far she goes with it but I love the idea of her costume being a project we work on together. I might have to ask someone for help as my design skills are rudimentary at best.

- I bought my shmooties from target! I was waiting to tell you until I had a pic to post but i wore them on my way to work yesterday and my feet are TORE UP. tore up. so it might be a while. My latest shopping obsession? A light jacket in a neutral that is not black (navy, brown, grey). It must be waist-length with some interesting detail and preferably leather or denim. Why is this so hard to find!

- Project Runway: Wouldn't you know the week after I make my pics Terri gets booted? Honestly her dress was terrible. But I'm disappointed we won't be seeing another garment from her but instead something boring from Suede.

Yeah, I guess it's time to start thinking about Halloween huh? Especially if you have kids. Mac and cheese is VERY ambitious. Wow.

I don't know where you'll find the perfect jacket, but I read that gray is THE neutral color to have for fall 2008. As for myself, I'm hankering for a leather jacket that fits well, and I'll take it in whatever color the thrift store has.

Macaroni - take some TP, wrapping paper tubes(cut to length) or Paper towel rolls and cut them open (slightly) on a diagonal and they will be spring-like. Take now-flexible rolls and masking tape them into form of crescent noodles. Rinse and repeat.
