I hope you all are having a sweet and fun day! Inevitably, you all are probably thinking about the Halloweens that you celebrated as a kid. I am. And I'd like to take this moment to call out my mom, who let me go as a nun for Halloween one year when I was in middle school. Can you even think of a less cool costume? Admittedly, I went along with it, but only because my Uncle Frankie made it so easy: he was in our church choir and thus apparently he had the hook up with all the church nuns. (Yes, in case all the needless guilt didn't clue you in, I was raised Catholic.) So, I got a real nun's habit and did my nun thing at school and while trick-or-treating. Sigh. When I look back, there are so many reasons that I felt socially inept while growing up.
Strangely enough, or perhaps quite rightly, I can't really remember any other costumes that I wore. We weren't the kind of family that made and worked on our costumes for a month before Halloween, and thus we usually wore whatever cheap costumes we found at our local Kmart. (Yes, we shopped at Kmart. You would've too if that was the only place your mom drove you.)
Other than these extremely pleasant memories, my Halloween has been pretty uuzch-tastic. That's (usual + fantastic). I went to my bootcamp class at the gym, I ate a boatload of eggs and kale from Whole Foods for lunch:
Why are scrambled eggs tasting soooo good to me lately? P.S. I am not avoiding carbs, FYI. There is just rarely a grain/carb option on the Whole Foods hot bar that looks really good to me.
And then I went to get a grownup "treat" from REI--new sunglasses:
|I swear they don't look quite so big in person. I am not glamorous enough for those kind of sunglasses.|
I really don't like posting pictures of myself where it's obvious that I have a horseface. That reminds me of a party recently where a friend of ours was taking pictures of everyone. I kept telling him that I'm usually very non-photogenic, but he kept saying that I was ridiculous, silly, etc. However, he kept taking pictures, looking at them, and then retaking them--for almost five minutes!!! Ha!! Proved him wrong.
*Are you photogenic? How do you feel about posting pictures of your face on your blog, if you have one?
