Magic

Does Anyone Remember THIS Movie?

Ok well all I remember is that this little troll had a green thumb and there was this one scene where he made this ugly looking place absolutely beautiful just with the touch of his thumb. Flowers started blooming, trees started growing, pretty moss covered all the ugly dirt. Grass grew in, trellises of roses formed, delicious fruit popped up everywhere. And I remember thinking 'now that..THAT would be an awesome power'.

One day I was in the back seat with my mom running errands. We were driving in an ugly part of town and I remember putting my thumb up to the window and pretending it turned everything beautiful as we drove by. Houses were magically painted, grass cut, bushes trimmed, garbage gone.

As I've grown older that fantasy has slowly dwindled (I still imagine it occasionally but I refrain from putting my thumb up to the window :) ). However when I move into a new place, or my house is a mess I find myself closing my eyes and searching for this magic- whispering the words bibbity-bobbity-boo.

When I open my eyes everything is the same-the mess is still there, the decorating still needs to be done, the yard still needs landscaping, but some how the sheer imagining of the potential makes the work enjoyable.

My world is a beautiful place.

Halloween Party


So...a while ago Scott and I started discussing Halloween costume ideas in the hopes that we would be invited to a specific Halloween party. We knew if the invitation did come-costumes would be required. 
A couple weeks ago, we decided on being vampires. It's always fun to get dressed up and pretend to be something you are not (I played dress up secretly in my room until I was like 14 years old, shshsh). 
Finally the invitation came (whew I'm so glad we made the list).  And lo and behold the theme for the party is Michael Jackson. Don't get me wrong I love the man's music. But lets be honest, he doesn't lend much creative license as far as costumes go, particularly for the females out there. 
We discussed a lot of different ideas and after watching 20 or so, very pixilated, music videos...We are going to dress up as....

Thriller's Michael Jackson (and Zombie)

Figuring this out

I have this idea that someday I will be like my sister in law. That this blog will become an adorable archive of our family history (as we all know I will never start a hand written journal). And yet somehow I can't manage to get on here and even keep a weekly writ going. This is post number one all by myself, and it's not too hard.

There's hope people, there's hope.
