Trick or Treat? :)

Saturday, October 31, 2009

My day started off the same as any other. I spent the morning on SP and holding my Chihuahua, Bella, who also enjoys lying in my arms starring at SP pages with me. She loves pics of animals. Hehe. I didn’t get dressed until around 2. While I was in the shower I decided I would get dolled up for Halloween. It is the one day a year it’s ok to look weird or abnormal. My family didn’t see it that way since they used to see me with makeup on all the time. Now I hate makeup. It’s so unhealthy for my skin, and it makes me look like a wrinkle-less porcelain doll. So I took the opportunity to wear it.

My nephew dressed as Wolverine. The real deal with foam muscles and the hand pieces. I didn’t share this with my adorable, charming nephew who is 7 years old, but he’s got nuhthin and I mean NUHTHIN (accented) on Hugh Jackman! My step-sister made her costume this year for the first time since she was a kid. She found the costume online but it was over a hundred bucks. It was a sexy pirate/winch. She did great! She looked like a newly divorced mom on the prowl. Wait, I must admit she’s not, but guys definitely had to be looking at her! Especially considering she was having skirt malfunctions before 5:00. Oh and I can’t forget this. DN’s dog was dressed up as a skeleton. Truly an adorable family!

Anyways, I had dinner with my parents and watched a really corny Halloween Ghost Hunters special. The host was hot, but his voice made everything sound really corny. Seriously one of those guys you would say “please, don’t speak.” if he was with you around friends and family.

On my way home I was thinking hmmm this was a good day! But this time next year I want to be out and about in a sexy costume. Then I got the email. The email that told me that I had received enough votes (no idea how many it takes) to be deemed an SP Motivator. I was ecstatic! Still am!

So I wanted to thank my dear SparkFriends for voting for me, and for making this a wonderful Halloween even if I am still single, physically alone (not mentally since I have SP), and most of all..FAT! I’m crossing my fingers that I won’t be this time next year, even though I will admit that I am in no position to date right now. Here’s to 2010 though!

Thanks again,


BTW, I am REALLY enjoying my new group, TWC. It will grow in time I'm sure, but I really feel like I'm helping. But most of all, it's helping me. See looking at other pages inspires and motivates ME. So we should all seek to motivate one another. I mean...we're in this thing together, right? *whispers* right?
