You Could Be a Vampire... If You Had To

Like most people, the thought of being a vampire has crossed your mind. But you're not sure if you'd do it, even if you could.
Living forever doesn't sound half bad, if you could live forever with the people you love the most.
But do vampires even love? And would the vampire version of you even be you?
It's all too much to contemplate. Luckily, the chances of you ever becoming a vampire are astronomically low.

What you would like best about being a vampire: Living forever

What you would like least about being a vampire: Blood stained teeth

What Your Halloween Habits Say About You
You're a friendly person, but not the life of the party. You like making someone else's day - and you'll dress up if you think of a really fun costume.
You often feel invisible when you're in public. And it's a shame, because you're really quite a character.
Your inner child is stubborn and a bit bossy.
You fear those closest to you finding out who you really are. You dread people discovering your secrets.
You're prone to be quite emotional and over dramatic. Deep down, you enjoy being scared out of your mind... even if you don't admit it.
You are picky and high maintenance. If you wear a Halloween costume, it's only when you really feel like it. And it has to be perfect.

Happy Halloween!

Today's 2 Peas Challenge~ Share a Halloween memory you have as a child...
I remember getting tons of candy! So much that you couldn't possibly eat all of it, you know come Easter you still had some left. I also remember people giving away apples, pencils, and worst of all pennies!

This is our first Halloween in our house and also the first time we will be handing out candy. I probably went a little overboard with the candy, but I don't want to run out. And if there is some chocolate left, I can deal with it:)

AC has been working nights since last Thursday. He goes in at 6 pm and comes home around 4 am. Not fun. Last year he was out of town a lot, but I got used to it. Last year we were in an apartment and I was never freaked out by being by myself. Since we are in a house this year, it is a little different. When I am by myself the house seems so big. I find myself not wanting to hang out at home alone. I'm sure I will get used to it again. We have an alarm, but I really think a big intimidating dog would be comforting. At least AC comes home and isn't gone for 2 weeks at a time. The night schedule won't last for long, maybe just a few more days.

Happy Halloween!

Puppy Update!

I forgot to include some news about the puppies...
They are getting bigger and starting to walk around in the pen. They are adorable. All 13 are still doing good! I love that they lay all over each other.

Since there are 13, Denise (my step-mom) has been feeding them once a day. She has a recipe that she uses to make the milk, it contains a can of pet milk, gelatin, Karo syrup, egg yokes and not sure what else. It takes her 2 hours to feed them all. They are so cute with all the little puppy noises they make.

Yard Work & Stitches

This past weekend weekend we went to My Dad's to celebrate birthdays. Jacob turned 8 & Josh turned 11. Denise always makes the coolest cakes!
I had a statistics exam last night. I am hoping for a huge curve! Tonight after work I had some extra energy, so I decided to go to Home Depot and get a pair of hedge trimmers. I got home and started working in the front yard getting all of the hostas and other plans cut down for winter. I also trimmed our tree. While trimming I tried to cut a large branch and ended up taking a small chunk out of the blade, so the trimmers would only close half way. Great, broke already! I went inside and asked AC to fix it for me. He came out to the garage and I went to pick up the branches. A few minutes later I came around into the garage and I must have been enough of a distraction, because AC cut his thumb. He went inside and I fixed the trimmer myself by standing on it. A little while later AC came back outside to tell me that he thinks he needs stitches. Off to Rochester Urgent Care we go. There wasn't anyone else there, so we didn't have to wait long at all. He got 4 stitches.The cut is below his finger nail straight down the knuckle. Since we were there I got a flu shot. This is the first time I have gotten one, hope it works.

The Big House

"Michigan Stadium. The Big House. Home of Michigan Football. One of the country's most classic, widely recognized sporting facilities, Michigan Stadium has come to symbolize the pride, tradition and excellence of the University of Michigan. There is truly no place like it on a fall Saturday afternoon." My first game and I loved it. We had a lot of fun and we won!

Only 110,888 people there on Saturday!

We got home from the game around 6:30, and I took off to go toTracy's house. It was my first time playing Bunko with her monthly Bunko group. She has invited me many times, but I wasn't able to go. I am so glad that I went, we had a fun night. I got home around 1 am!
Me & Tracy

Go Blue!

Today, we are going to Ann Arbor to the U of M football game against Purdue. Last night Aman & Amit were making chili and marinating pork chops in order to properly be ready to tailgate today. I have never been to a game, so I am looking forward to it.

After the game I am playing Bunko at Tracy's house. Busy Saturday. Tomorrow needs to be all homework. Have a great weekend!

Sketch Club & 2 Peas Challenge

The week is almost over. My work is slow this week, so I have been working on my homework. I have to study for my statistics class.
On Tuesday, I went to sketch club at the Tree. I always like going there. I got one 2-page layout completely done. I am working on making books for Ashley & Emily (my sisters), since I have a ton of photos from when they were little. I was 12 when Ashley was born and Emily came a year later. Now Ashley is 16, going to be 17 in December. My plan is to give the completed books to them when they graduate, so I have lots of time.
I watched Private Practice & Dirty Sexy Money last night. Both good shows.
Today's Challenge~ Are you a person who will go out of your norm to try something new at least once. Or stay with that your comfortable with?
I am a complete creature of habit, but I will try new things, like food, at least once.
Yesterday's Challenge - Do you get any monthly scrapbook kits? If yes, what do you like about the kit?
I have been getting the monthly kit from 3 Scrappy Boys. I like the kits because often it contain new paper lines and everything coordinates perfectly. The kits also contain different embellishments than what I would put together.

It's Monday again...

AC found out late Friday night that he had the weekend off, so that was good for him. He has been working a lot and welcomed the break.
I had a great time scrapping this weekend! I got about 3 2-page LO's complete. On Saturday, I was supposed to go to the Michigan football game, but I ducked out at the last minute. It was too hot. I hate being hot and so I thought it was better to just stay home. AC went with his brother, Amit. Amit has season tickets and Gaurav is going to school there, so they always have a good time tailgating and all. I ran errands on Saturday and we just stayed in and caught up on the DVR recordings in the evening.
I think Grey's Anatomy has been pretty disappointing so far this season. Meredith is becoming quite whiner.
I started my homework late on Sunday, so I need to go to school early tonight to finish. Tomorrow night is sketch club at my LSS.
Have a great week and thanks for reading.

I am going to a crop at my LSS (local scrapbook store) from 4 pm to midnight. I am excited to crop tonight! My co-worker, Kathy, and her neighbor are also going.

Awake & 2 Peas Challenge

My class on Monday night went good. It has been a while since I have had a statistics class, so I need to refresh a bit. I was not feeling very good today, so I went to bed early at 10 pm. I woke up at 1 am and here I am, not able to sleep.

The 2 Peas Challenge for today is... When you are stuck and need some inspiration. Where do you turn?
Idea books! I have more than I will ever have time to use all of the ideas. I really like the Easy Patterns for Scrapbooking Magazine. Lots of cool ideas inside. I also find that the monthly sketch club at my LSS is a huge inspiration to scrapbook.

First Day of School

Finally I got some scrapbooking done this weekend! I went to the 12 hour crop on Saturday with my sister. We had a good time. I will post photos later. I start school tonight, so from 6 to 10 pm I will be in class. Not looking forward to it, but need to get it done. Six more classes after this semester and I will have my bachelors degree. I can't wait! AC had to work on Saturday morning and then all day on Sunday. Sunday evening we went to our favorite Mexican restaurant for dinner. Overall, it was a nice weekend:)
