I haven't blogged in quite a while... guess you've noticed! Not much has been going on and I've just not felt inspired. I've been trying to think of inspiration all night (well, maybe for just the last 15-20 minutes) and here's what I've come up with - a list of random thoughts!

1. My life would be much easier if: I had a dishwasher that worked, could teleport to work in .5 seconds, or if I could inherit a substantial of money.

2. I am going to see New Moon tomorrow with my SIL, a couple of her friends, and Billy's cousin. I could not be more excited!!! I wish I could take off work and sleep late so the movie time would get here quicker. I won't, I promise.

3. Starbucks has started serving (brewing?) their holiday flavors and they are just as delicious as I remember. Today I had a WHITE chocolate peppermint mocha for the first time and it was a-ma-zing! It tasted much like the regular peppermint mocha, but sweeter. MMM!

4. I am completely ready for Thanksgiving, Christmas and all things holiday. I have wanted to put up our Christmas decorations for at least a month! The hubs wouldn't allow this crazy behavior, so they still aren't up... but trust me, they're coming! I'll be sure to post pictures because our Christmas decorations are much more impressive than our Halloween decorations.

5. I actually like the "Party in the USA" song by Miley Cyrus. However, I was not too happy about her "Twilight" bashing comments I heard on the radio. She said "I’ve never seen it and nor will I ever." Miley, if a 23 year old woman can jam to your songs, anything is possible.

6. College basketball season has arrived :):):) AND the Cats are looking impressive already! No, they aren't great but I think they will be! If nothing else, they will be fun to watch.

7. I need to diet. Yeah.

8. I want a tattoo. I have always wanted one, but I just have no idea what to get! If it's going to be on my body forever, it's got to be good.

9. Oh... here's a big one... While on vacation to FL in October I found GRAY HAIRS! OMG. I've found some, like one at a time, over the last year or so. I've never found more than one until now. There were so many I could not pull them out!! I had a small freak out, but then moved on. Right now they just make my hair look shimmery in the light! lol I'm just hoping I don't have to start dying my hair at age 25. SHEESH!

10. My dog is probably the best dog you could ever imagine. We've had her since June 2008. We house trained her with a crate which worked amazingly well. Up until I was gone on vacation, she spent the night in her crate and the day while we were away at work in her crate. It broke our hearts to lock her up so much, but attempts to leave her out had resulted in poop on the floor. While I was gone on vacay Billy decided to try leaving her out overnight and she didn't poop! He left her out every night that week with no accidents. Then we tried leaving her out during the day... long story short, she now is crate-free and is also accident-free since mid October! I'm so proud of her! She's so good and such a sweetheart. Best.Dog.Ever. :)

Alright, that's enough! This is getting a wee bit ridiculous! Please excuse this random post in list form because I was too lazy/uninspired to form it into a comprehensive piece. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! I'm hoping to start blogging more regularly, but I make no promises!

I had been saving this post until I could upload my pictures. However, it seems that is just never going to happen so you'll have to use your imagination! A couple days before Halloween, Billy and I carved pumpkins. Mine was a mask type face and his was a vampire getting ready to bite someone. He usually draws his own, but was feeling a little uninspired this year. I digress!

Halloween night we went to Anderson Co to my grandmother's house. Every Halloween we go over to her house, eat chili, play cards and hand out candy. Last year Billy and I stayed home to hand out candy, but decided to go this year. Anyway, as we were leaving I was loading stuff in the back seat of my car and I see this white thing sticking to my car. It's dark outside so I'm not sure if it's a bug or what... so I get closer only to discover that my new-to-me car that I am in love with has been egged! CRAP! I drive that Neon for 6 years and never get egged and I have my car for 8 months and here come the eggs! After saying a few choice words, I drove to a car wash and everything was solved. The hubby and I get home safely and head to bed around 1am after watching some tv.

Cut to Sunday morning. I open the door so the dog can look out only to find that our pumpkins we so lovingly carved 2 days before have been SMASHED to bits in the road! Some punks snuck up on our front porch and stole our pumpkins! I would feel better about it if they stole them and took then home to admire, but NO, they stole them and then immediately smashed them in the road! The scene outside our house looked something like this...

Now I have seen these things happen in the movies and maybe heard about them happening to other people. Just my luck I get not one but two Halloween tricks in the same year! Total bummer. The upside is that I had a good time at my grandmother's house and the pumpkins were good while they lasted! I hope you all had a trick free Halloween!

UPDATE: Here is my pumpkin

And here is Billy's pumpkin.
And here are our masterpieces smashed in the street! OY.
