Raven Haired

I am tired of my brown hair fading to red so I tried black. Maybe it will fade to brown and then again it might not.
So far 99.5% of the consensus is good, they other .5% doesn't count, that person is socially awkward.
It makes my eyes pop and goes well with my skin, so it's a keeper. Maybe just maybe this is what my Grandma Ermine looked like.

Noah And The Whale - Blue Skies - Live In Session

Noah and The Whale's new album The First Days of Spring will break your heart and start to mend it again. It is extraordinary, stunning, yet simple masterpiece. I have been absorbing it for a month now and every time I listen it becomes just what I need it to be.

It must be listened straight through a few times to get the beauty behind it. The mini Film that coincides with the album is perfection also. I highly recommend this album and their previous album, which I thoroughly love, Peaceful, the World Lays Me Down. They are both must listens (and own for that matter).

Go here or here or anywhere else you buy your music to get yourself a copy, and prepare to break your heart.

A Letter to the Birthday Fairy

Dear Birthday Fairy,
I am writing to let you know that I would like to reject a gift you gave. You know the one you put in my left eye, which then promptly shared with my right eye. It is a gift that I did not wish for nor do I want. Pink eye is not the way I want to begin a new and exciting year. Yes I do know it is pink eye because the strange little Doctor I saw confirmed it. So please remove the gift so that I can enjoy my Birthday week.

Also when you come to take the gift back, please leave some $$ because I now need to replace my eye makeup and as you know it can be a bit expensive. I am also not to happy about starting out the new year makeup less for the next few days. I will cope because I am a trooper that way, but if I run into the hot guy in the building, I will be a bit dismayed.

As for the other gifts, I enjoyed them immensely and they are all well received.

Sincerely Yours,

Happy Birthday....

to Me!

My Mom loves this picture of me and so do I. She said she always thinks that I am about to do something mischievous.
Today is my Birthday and it is a pretty great day to have one. Who else can say they share it with Dia de la Muerta (Day of the Dead). Kinda cool don't ya think!
I am taking it easy tonight with Cactus Tacos and a movie, Thanks Anne. (partly due to an eye infection which has made for an interesting day). A party will be forthcoming.
Thanks for the Facebook love and phone calls from loved ones! You all really know how to make my day.

Halloween-The Cliff Notes Version

Yep I dressed up this year. Believe me it was hard to figure out a costume since everything is now in the "sexy" style, but after trying several, Olive Oyl won out.

Friday at work I was somehow put in charge of a potluck party. It was fun but really when did I become the event planner. Maybe I'll get a raise.

Friday night was a fabulous party at a Marielle and Sam's house, it was fun to hang out with friends and eat yummy food.

On Halloween there was the Carnival and Trunk or Treat put on by the primary. It's amazing how many kids show up for this every year, it really is a fantastic party. I loved seeing all of the kids creative costumes; my favorites on absolute creativity go to these two:

Turning J's standing wheel chair into a Chariot. She loved it and so did every one else!

T is currently obsessed with garbage cans and when he saw what his dad created for him, he about passed out with excitement.

Halloween night was spent at Masha and Chris's watching It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, eating delicious food and hanging out with amazing friends.

All in all it was a wonderful Halloween, I am currently suffering from a candy coma but will hopefully recover soon before the Birthday festivities begin.
