Entries from October 2009

Sometimes my job requires me to do things like dress up like a corporate zombie.

Jeremy likes to help.


The Life Aquatic

October 26, 2009

I wish my world existed in these dioramas.




We had an amazing weekend. For as busy as it was with the Halloween parade (more on that later!) we had some really quality downtime together.

A Bad Habit

October 24, 2009

My worst habit, by far, is biting my nails.

You know who inspired me to quit? Britney Spears. Remember when she started on her downward spiral (bless her heart) a few years ago and was walking into public bathrooms without shoes on? Well, the paparazzi also zoomed in on her chewed up nails.

Ever since then I’ve had to get weekly manicures to kick the habit. And I’ve fallen off the wagon a couple of times: like when work was extra stressful, when Jeremy got appendicitis on our honeymoon, and when on vacation.

It’s become expensive to maintain so I’ve decided to learn how to give myself a real manicure. Not too shabby and I’m sure practice will make perfect.

What are your bad habits?

I stumbled across this picture the other day and have been obsessed with it ever since. It makes me want to buy an airbrush and experiment with fun makeup applications.

What’s everyone up to this weekend?

Jeremy and I are going to be zombies in a huge Halloween Parade (participating in a float I helped design!)

We’ll also probably go rock climbing.

Other than that we don’t have much planned. Maybe we’ll carve pumpkins and watch some scary movies. Maybe we’ll fire up the chiminea and make mudslides. Oh, and sleeping in sounds nice.

Weekend: Work Hard, Play Hard

October 23, 2009


This weekend we’re:
• participating in a huge Halloween Parade. I’ve been prepping for it for about a month and this last week has been intense with finishing up 24 zombie suits.
• Rock climbing

Other than that we don’t have any solid plans.
