the vamps come out at night...

OK, so this week is super busy (so much so that I should not be posting right now), but I had a friend (Brooke! shout out!) inform me that November is national blogging month apparently. And while I don't have time to blog every day, I am trying to blog more than normal...which still isn't saying much. OK, so I'm not going to post any recent photos today....but l do have some photos from BU homecoming and from a date Jas and I took to the Ft. Worth Zoo (thanks to home group!). Sooo watch out.

OK, so what I really want to say is that the 2nd installment from the Twilight saga, New Moon, comes out this week!!! I don't care how dorky this sounds, but I bought tickets 2 months ahead of time because CNN scared me into thinking that it was going to sell out way far in advance. So just to be safe....bought the tickets 2 months early, which is a little dramatic, I'll admit. Anyways, Jas, my sister, and I are going to the midnight showing on Thursday night!! I can't wait! I hope it is not a disappointment. Check it out!

Berlin Wall

Today is the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. When I heard that on the radio, I remembered how I visited Berlin back in 2006 when I studied abroad in Europe. It was cool to see a physical piece of such a significant point in history...I don't actually remember the fall of the Berlin wall because I was only 5 years old...but later learned about it in college. Here are some photos from my trip to Berlin...

Halloween 2009!

So this years Halloween was a bit of a flop...well sort of. Jason and I spent about an hour at a local thrift store trying to come up with some creative halloween costume ideas. We didn't want to spend a lot of money on a silly costume, but apparently we aren't very creative. We couldn't come up with any costume ideas. All I could come up with was me being Kimmy Gibbler (which someone actually told me I looked like her once....sweet...sense the sarcasm) and Jason was going to be Screech. So we bought some dorky clothes to attempt to be these characters...but honestly, we just weren't feeling it. Plus, the denim overall shorts outfit I bought barely fit me. So it just made me want to hit the gym instead of enjoy a fatty bag of halloween candy. So we ended up not using the clothes we bought (wasting money....always good for the budget) and didn't dress up. We went to a friends house to celebrate her birthday, which was really fun. So it wasn't actually a flop...just not very festive, which I am ok with.

Kimmy Gibbler- FAIL

Screech- FAIL

Even though we might have failed this year...Spud didn't! you bet your bottom dollar that Spud got a costume! This was his first time to dress up since we didn't get him last year until the end of November. So he was a mail man this halloween! Talk about cute...I mean, I know if you don't have a dog, you probably don't care...but seriously, you can't deny his little face. Wouldn't you want this guy to deliver your mail?? I think so...

look at his little mail man butt....

what a good sport!
