Hola blog! Here’s a candid family portrait snapped by Alyse a weekend or so ago at her place, for her son’s 9th birthday and Grandma Shirley’s 87th (!!!). The baby and I had a cold, but so does 90% of the planet right now so we went and “partied”. We are all wearing black Converse sneakers, I’d like to add.
Alyse has an amazing and giant backyard…that I wish I’d photographed more of. Here’s one pretty corner.
Day 15 of the October 2017 Wig Series…the REAL Vanessa Kensington wig! Apparently the one I wore towards the beginning of the series was the Austin Powers wig. Roops.
Day 16: the Kurt Cobain! It didn’t seem right NOT to post it, and it didn’t seem right to wear it myself, so luckily good ol’ Maggie is now too old to resist wigs and sunglasses. For five seconds, anyway.
Finally Day 17…the mystery wig for Halloween 2017! Woo hoo! I bought that Styrofoam sugar skull head at the fabric store…couldn’t resist! It wants to be painted, badly.
My mother has been texting me old pictures, and here is my infamous first wig. I bought it at a thrift store during a high school debate tournament, and I have no idea whatever happened to the poor old girl.
I also ogled this amazing silver and turquoise ombre sequin fabric at the fabric store…MMMmmmMMMM.
We’ve been slowly decorating the house for the upcoming Halloween baby party this weekend.
I have more envisioned for the couch here…I feel like the skull is missing something. A giant spiderweb around it?
This giant jar of Jelly Belly jellybeans has christened our living room for a while. Josh likes to cram all the flavors in his mouth at once…GROSS. I eat one at a time…until I feel sick. Doesn’t take long. Usually about two in.
My neighbor’s neon flower garden: still strong. I’m impressed.
Poor Bear Cub thought the one place she’d be safe was our bed…foiled again!
Recommended stand-up: “Christina P: Mother Inferior”. We laughed our butts off!
I love this tree each year. So dazzling.
This one impressed me this morning.
Took this self-portrait with the baby and dogs before the shitstorm hit last week–my very first UTI/bacterial infection. It’s been a nightmare of walk-in clinics, contaminated urine samples, going back for a second urine sample and then not having a doctor’s order…UGH. It’s been a hard month for us! The baby and I had just gotten over our second cold since September and then I was hit with this gross infection. Not to mention Maggie dog had a bacterial infection that required antibiotics too. What a sick bunch!
I’m on day 3 of antibiotics and maybe starting to have the tiniest bit of relief. Maybe. Taking care of a 9 month old baby with a UTI has presented with its own set of challenges.
Here’s my sweet baby, “enjoying” the costume shop with his parents again.
Will Maggie ever tolerate a Halloween costume? Nahhhh.
I noticed that the FUN wigs had a big glittery E in front of them. Coincidence?
Family walk yesterday in the sunshine.
Maggie and Bear Cub romped in the field.
Today’s art project (after another visit to the doctor) was drawing up some googly eyes to post in our window, Joshy’s idea.
Oof! Writing this entry took three tries. Sometimes Mr. Baby doesn’t want to let Mama do a THING. Catch you on the flip side, bloggeroos.
