Drizzly with a Change of Soy Nuggets & Hashbrowns...

So basically blogger hates me and every time I try to upload photos it sucks and wont let me-BOO! So I think I need to switch this over to wordpress or something. Blogger-get it together!

Completely unrelated items: I went to an amazingly 80s-tastic party Friday. I forgot how much fun costume-y parties are. It has been awhile. It just felt nice to be out with friends, looking silly, being silly, and having fun! Just fills up your soul.

I get to see my bestie Ben in San Diego this next week. I love him. He literally is the re-charge button to my spirit. Just makes me feel so happy. We always make each other laugh and have an amazing time. It's just a little something to look forward to. I also get to see my long-time friend Kathy next week too hopefully in my little San Diego adventure. I love her. And coming off how fun her wedding week was it will just be delightful to continue the festivities. Hooray!

My car's engine died again. This time not the battery but something to do with the coolant/water pump mechanisms and I had to get towed from the Valley to WeHo. Thank goodness AAA gives me 100 free miles of towing. My poor little SPF (Sean Patrick Focus)! I love my little car and it breaks my heart when he is sick. :( He is my first and only car and I am very attached to him!! I hope that it is easily (and cheaply) fixable.

Wednesday my dear friend Heather and I are going to a Halloween Costume Party/QuinceaƱera and I am SO stoked. It's for Heather's friend who turned 35 and went to a traditional QuinceaƱera and fell in love with the whole celebration and is paying homage. Heather is going to be Catwoman and I am going to be Poison Ivy. We're working out the details on what we want to wear but I was thinking of maybe doing a deconstructed Ivy with green tights, a man's green button up, green shoes, messy hair with Ivy all through it, a prop cigarette and whiskey. I think it would be funny. Like she's been at it too long and doesn't care anymore. But it would also be fun to wear the traditional unitard and tights, green boots and gloves too. We'll see...

Colonel Mustard is sleeping curled up on the couch between the pillows and it is so cute it is distracting me. I have to go cuddle him as soon as humanly possible. Sweet little pup! Overwhelmed by the cuteness.

Hope all is well with you. I'm off to sleep and snuggle this pup. I'm still getting over my cold so sleep is needed. Take care all!! :D

Mixed Weather Reviews but Mostly Sunny

Hello Friends!

So I was absent for a bit. For the identity theft incident, a trip back to Michigan and my home town, and now because I'm sick! So busy!

SO here is a quick run-down on the progress of everything...

1) Identity theft: the culprit is in LA County jail (thank goodness) and is being held on high High HIGH bail so I and everyone else are safe. I just have to keep monitoring my credit, etc. and stay on top of everything since the laws are set up so the victim must do the work to save their own credit/future. And since my credit/future are important to me I am staying on it!

2) Trip to Michigan-it started off not so great. The car died and I had to call everyone I could think of for a ride to make my flight. But the charity walk I did for Walk Now for Autism Speaks was amazing and our team raised over $2500!!!

3) My home town was for the most part great. My lovely friend got married-she was gorgeous, the ceremony and reception were amazing, it was pretty perfect! We threw a pretty kick-ass bachelorette party for her too! My family was great-it was nice t spend some quality time together and really talk. There was a minor drama with my sister's crazy ex but that was avoided for the most part, he was just being his immature self and my sister smartly removed herself from the situation.

4) I woke up my last morning in Michigan with a slight sore throat (I thought due to the lack of sleep I got all week from wedding extravaganza and cocktailing like I don't usually do) and then by the end of the first of two plane rides I was in full blown cold mode. Then I got a fever. What can I say? October seems to be my sick month, last year's Halloween was spent in bed sick-at least this year it came early so hopefully I can still dress up and have fun with Joe and our puppy!

So that is my brief run down. Enjoy some photos from my Michigan adventure!

So blogger wont let me upload photos...I shall do it tomorrow, hopefully it'll be better by then. :)
