Am I Scary??

My flickr friend Dave used some of my pics and did me up for Halloween. What do you think??

I took the girls out today to get pics of them in their costumes. I didn't go out searching for the perfect location, just used what was in walking distance. I got too many cute ones and couldn't decide which ones to post, so you'll get to look through a lot of them. Hope you don't mind.

My sweet friend Antoinette made these costumes and did an excellent job. I'm always so impressed with everything she makes. Check out her store 'Little Bee's Boutique' on my blog, under my favorite places to shop.

Remember, you can click the pic to make it larger. (some will look better that way)

Self portraits and my new hair

I learned how to focus on myself. Finally. So I took some pics for practice. You can see my new do. I have big hair, man. I had the lady put in highlights and lowlights (guess that's what they are called) and then had more layers put in. This is what it looks like straight. One day I'll do some pics when I curl it.

Used the powder room action here. Bet you couldn't tell. LOL

San Antonio, TX

Friday morning, Jarrett came home early from work and we headed to San Antonio... KIDLESS! We stopped at the outlet mall and got him some jeans for $7.99. We got to San Antonio around 4. We stayed at this hotel. Let me tell you. If you want to be near the action, do not stay here. We were what felt like, miles and miles away from the good stuff. Nice hotel, but too far away.

So we get our room, on the 18th floor, OMG, then head down to the Riverwalk. And we walk. And walk. I pull out my camera cause even though it's far away from the good stuff, it's beautiful there. We saw this cute little bench.

I tried to take lots of pics at first, but Jarrett started feeling all touristy so he made me self conscious about it. So after about the first 5 pics, I gave up on getting good shots. :(
We walked and walked some more. Then you know what? It was the end. Yup, we were walking the wrong way.
Going the other direction, on the other side. To make it look like we did it on purpose.
Interesting building. Getting closer to the fun stuff.

Still not quite there.
AHH!! FOOD and drinks! We were there! We stopped here first and had some chips and margaritas.
We didn't take the boat this time. BTDT
Our table was right by the river. We kept feeding these ducks. They acted like they were starving. One came up and got under my chair. Holy crap!
Then we walked some more. Trying to figure out what we wanted to do this time around.
Our favorite restaurant. Tony Roma's. We go way back.
Outside this band was playing flutey things. It was pretty music but I think they only knew a handful of songs.
Then we went to the mall and found the comedy club.
That was FUN. Funny guys! I'd love to go back to that.

That was over at close to 11 so we stopped by another place cause I was getting hungry (finally)

Best dadgum Mexican food ever. Loved this place.

I had a headache, Jarrett was getting all buzzed and making me crazy so we went back to the room.
We ended up checking out at 9 a.m. and coming back home. We talked about staying another night, but even on the 18th floor we could hear all the cars and street sweepers going by. We didn't get much sleep.
On the way home, we stopped back by the outlet mall and did some shopping. THAT was fun too. I love that place.
We made it home just in time to go to a get together some friends were having.
We enjoyed our time alone, but it was time to get the kids back. I missed them. I still miss Kyndal. She decided to stay an extra week.

What a week!

My mom wanted the kids and who am I to tell her no? LOL I let them go to her house Tuesday night. I got to relax a LOT. I had my hair done on Friday. Pics coming later. Then Saturday morning we left for San Antonio. I'll be blogging some pics from our vacation later today. Just wanted to pop on here right quick so you all know we're ALIVE. The kids came back yesterday. Kyndal decided to stay an extra week. The boys have football so they had to come home. It's so nice to have them back. I still miss Kyndal but I think she needs some time away from the rest of the kids. Pics coming soon!

Sept 22 - Oct 2

A little update before I get too far behind. This is what we've been up to.

Jarrett has been working at his Grandma's house, getting the shore line cleaned up. I think it'll be a nice place to hang out next summer when we go to the lake. And of course the kids are loving that he's using all these tractors to do the work.

I was challenged to do some self portraits, here are a couple of my attempts.

I went to Best Buy finally and picked up my purse camera that was being fixed. I got pulled over. Got a ticket for expired registration. It's been out since JUNE! I couldn't believe it. I had no clue and I really don't pay that much attention to it. I'm sure the police officer didn't believe me. Which reminds me, I need to get that taken care of TODAY.

I took a few pics of Karly with my purse camera.

We had another football game. Both of our teams lost. Caleb's team is 2w-1L and Connor's team (poor kids) is 0w-3L. eek

I rearranged my house a little. The boys room first, then I swapped the girls room with my room and painted their room white. That was a lot of work. Remind me to never do it again.
Yesterday, Jarrett had another tractor at the lake and we were going out there anyway to try to get a pic of all the kids together. But when the kids saw the tractor that's all they cared about. So I only got a few shots of the kids.

Connor went looking for frogs and found one. Look how tiny!
It's Friday, I'm excited. We have a lot to do around here today.
(school, cleaning, pay bills, handle ticket)
I better get up and get busy. I still haven't had time to catch up on all my blog friends blogs. I'm sorry. I'm about done with my fall cleaning so I'll be catching up soon. Hope everyone is doing well.
