Trick or Treat

Happy Halloween!

This year my little big man decided he wanted to be Ash Ketchum from Pokémon (:  That used to be one of my FAVORITE cartoons when I was younger -- obviously I was stoked.  However, I googled the costume in hopes of finding him one and them mofos were $80+  You have got to be kidding me!  That price was RE-DICK-YOU-LUSS!  Especially for a costume that someone plans on wearing for ONE day/night.  So this year we MADE his costume (: 

I have to admit, my hubby has some awesome sewing skills!  He's such a nice housewife [tee hee not really] or in my words, such a good betch.  He did the sewing and I cut the ribbon and glued it on.  We only ordered the hat; it was $6 on Amazon.  Since it's from Pokémon I'm sure that hat will be put to use more than today. 

I'm pretty sure you're expecting a picture of the costume...?  NOT yet! (:  I'm waiting until tonight when all the kids are together.  Usually him and my nephew have coordinating costumes because they act just like brothers. 

I'm pretty sure I'm more excited than he is for the debut of his costume.

My newbie is going to be a monkey! [Awwwww]  I call him my chunky monkey.  He's so cute I just want to pinch him! [calm your tits, I'm not going to]  After my little big man's costume was coming together, I thought of it a little too late AND after I already bought the newbie's costume - but it would of been pretty dope to have my newbie as Pikachu.  Oh well, maybe next year and so on and so forth? 

I almost forgot to add, but this is my newbie's FIRST Halloween!  So for all my family and friends, expect TONS of pictures.  It'll probably come close to being so many pics that you can put it together like your very own flip book lol

I'm super excited for the kids festivities, but I actually hate Halloween.  It is my least favorite "holiday"....?  [is this really a holiday???]  Other than getting to watch Hocus Pocus and listen to Thriller on repeat - no thanks.  I'm not into the scary/creepy type of shit.  I'm not one of the adults that get all dressed up for today, etc.  And if I did, it was be something fun or skanky [ what chick hasn't], but you'll never see me in some scary outfit.

Anyways... More to come ;)

This Thing Called Love

I love Love.

Kind of; we have a love/hate relationship type of deal going on.

I thought I could share what I've learned about Love; whether it be from my own personal experience or from what I've observed/learned from others.

1.  Love stops time.  At least sometimes it feels that way.  Like when you're with your significant other snuggled up on the couch watching a movie/TV show together, or when you're just riding in the car together singing along to your favorite songs; just enjoying each others company.  Or when you're locked in their embrace and feel the exchange of your body heat from holding each other so close.  Maybe even that moment when your eyes meet right before your lips touch.  It's just the two of you frozen in time [maybe standing in the rain - shut up I watch too many movies] because in that exact moment you're overwhelmed with complete and utter happiness in this perfect Kodak moment with the one you Love.

2. Love is unconditional.  Whether you're a parent or a sibling or a lover - love is unconditional.  I love my boys no matter what.  I'm sure plenty of parents say that, but it's the truth.  There is no word to describe the love you feel for your children [or your fur baby(s) tee hee].  No matter what my children do, my love is unchanging.  Even if my kids hated me for some odd reason [it better be a good one], they will always be my children & I'll still love them.  There is nothing that would change how I feel about them.

3.  Love has more than one language.  As if Love wasn't already complicated...  Everyone should look into The Five Love Languages - it'll blow your mind.  According to the test we took, my husband and I speak the same love language.  However, after further looking into all that shit I believe mine is not the same [it's either Acts of Service or Quality Time].  I demand a re-test [tee hee] But when you do find out each other's love languages, make sure to actually UTILIZE the information.

4.  Love has an expiration date.  It's sad that even canned food can last longer than some of the "love" people feel/express [at least according to Facebook lol].  According to some research, the honeymoon/lovey dovey feeling you experience lasts for a good 2 years.  After that... Good luck! 

**I promise I'm not trying to talk you out of Love**
5.  Love can suck.  I'm pretty positive that a lot would agree.  Whether it be because of who you love or the bad luck you have with Love or the things Love makes you do, etc. 

6. You can be IN Love or Love someone.  What. The. Fu*k....?  Have I mentioned how complicated this little shit can be?  In my opinion, to be IN love is more of an emotional high.  It's rather deceiving because a lot of people use the term "falling in love" so once that feeling of "falling" is removed - you have what?  It doesn't require effort like "real" Love. When you experience "real" love, you GROW together.  When you truly love someone you have no regards for their imperfections, but chose to love them because of their flaws/imperfections.  Real love requires effort and is almost like a second job because it requires WORK.

That's all I have for now.  This thing called love is a learning process I don't think anyone will ever fully understand.
