Zoo Boo!

Friday morning we went to Zoo Boo! Being a weekday, I thought it would be a little less crowded. I guess it was, but we still had to park forever away and walking with two kids in costume passed a golf course and multiple parking lots, was not fun.We took this right as we walked in. Can you see how tired they already are?! Yeah--dang walking! Teik's boots need a little fixing, and we lost them a couple of times while I carried him, but the overall effect is awesome!
My little garden gnome, eating grapes--on the ground--in the middle of a sidewalk. At least he's happy!
My little Tinkerbell! She was very particular about her hair, and I couldn't quite get the "ball" she wanted on her head! Oh well. It was so hot, that I'm glad it was at least slicked back because she was sweating!
They had a cute area called The Pumpkin Patch, where the kids could go in and decorate their own mini pumpkin. Poor Teiker's hair is all wet from the sweat. After growing up wearing coats over our costumes, I fear my poor kids were going to melt in theirs!
Sevy at the Pumpkin Patch. You can see the cool "tatzoo" she got at one of the booths.

I liked this little test-run of the kids costumes! I now know I need to add some snaps instead of hooks, and do something about Teik's boots to keep them in place. Zoo Boo was pretty fun. Will we do it again next year? Probably not! (Aren't I a terrible mom?!) I just wasn't that impressed, but that may be the heat and exhaustion talking!


Dream Shoes

If I had money to burn, and I'm talking A LOT of money to burn, I would buy these shoes. I first found them in my Octobers InStyle magazine. One word: HOT! But I'm a fairly reasonable person who doesn't really wear gold that often. So then I found this version of them:
Yeah, I think I may faint! I'm so in love with these shoes. The major "ugh!" moment comes when I look at the price: $1,285. I don't think Jon's car is even worth that much! Sad. So if any overly wealthy person is out there and takes pity on a poor mother-of-two-married-to-a-dental-student, this is what I want for my birthday. It can count as Christmas also. And maybe the rest of my birthdays until I'm 50! Hmmm . . . I think I'm drooling over the gold ones again!



My email has been hacked multiple times now and I'm getting really annoyed. Thanks to the hacker, all my friends, family, coworkers, and church associates have been sent an link to a sexual enhancement drug straight out of Canada. Awesome. Looks like I'll be getting a new email soon. On the plus side, I'll probably get to clean up my email address list which is embarrassingly long and I don't remember half the people on it. Look at me and my positive side!
