Wizard of Bras

***Girl Talk Here***  Overt your eyes if you are a male***

It's been a while since I have had a properly  fitting bra.  It seems as I have had kids, lost weight, gained weight, had more kids etc.  I just haven't taken the time to get a proper fitting.  Well, I finally did it.  Thanks to my good friend Angela, for prodding me along with a birthday gift card, I made my way to Monrovia's Wizard of Bras.  There, they keep track of your size and the style of bras that you buy.  Now mind you, I haven't been there for at least 3 years.  The record indicated that my last bra was a size 34 E.  What size did I walk out in?  That would be 34 B.  Yea baby, I'm back to my original size.  Whoever said that being busty was fun, clearly hasn't been without.  I think being without is way better than being with.  I'm not sure most men would agree, but I'm sure the women can all relate.

Halloween 2013

It's almost Halloween again and I'm always amazed at how fast the year has gone.  The really bad part is that the rest of the year goes even faster than the first half!

We had our ward annual Trunk-or-treat on Monday night.  It's a really fun night for the kids.  Everyone is there in costume, even most adults.  This year I chose to have us all be Legos.  It was simple and fun and lets be honest, INEXPENSIVE.

The only problem is that sitting down to eat was a little hard for the kids.  Oh well.  It was only for one night.

Football and Pumpkins

Sunday was a marathon sporting day.  First game up was the Washington Redskins followed by the Red Sox World Series Game.   While Bjorn was watching the game I thought it would be a good idea to carve pumpkins with the kids.  It would occupy them for a long time and they wouldn't notice the fact that they couldn't watch "kid shows"  all day.

I started by cutting open everyones pumpkins.  Then I thought they would all enjoy getting out the "guts".  As it turns out, none of kids liked the feeling of the "guts" and I ended up gutting all of them myself.

Then on to the designs.  Audrey wanted an Ariel, Lydia wanted a Hello Kitty, and Myles wanted a little green alien from Toy Story.  They all turned out really well if I do say so myself.  I felt like the little red hen in the end.  I bought the pumpkins, I gutted the pumpkins and I carved the pumpkins all by myself!  Maybe next year they will be able to help out a little more...
