I’m going shopping tonight! w00t! I’m not getting anything great, but just spending money makes me happy. I need to get my 2 youngest their Halloween costumes. I hate waiting until the last minute because then the selection is quite booty. My oldest daughter (5) is going to be a “funky diva.” She calls it a “punky diva.” LOL. She’s got a glittery jumpsuit with a silver wig and microphone. I’ll probably cake some makeup on her face as well. My middle daughter is 3 and wants to be a princess. I searched for a costume but couldn’t find one in her size before. She’s so tiny. I’ll look again tonight. And for little Rah, I wanted him to be a football player. My baby is so bowlegged and chunky, when he walks, he looks just like a little linebacker (like I even know what that is). But we shall see. I’m at the point where I will buy whatever is available. Heck, do you even remember what you were on Halloween when you were 1, 3 or 5? I sure don’t. I’ll take some pictures on Halloween to show them off. I was going to dress up, but haven’t really decided. The great thing about having kids is you can do all that crazy, fun stuff and folks won’t think you’re insane. Maybe I’ll even get my own bag of candy and won’t have to steal the baby’s!
Yesterday, Ray bought me four beautiful candles. They cost a lot of money. Supposed to be some great stuff, long lasting, blah, blah. I’m nervous to burn them though. One of them has REAL apple slices in it. It smells wonderful, but I ain’t trying to burn down the house. One of them has shells and sand. They’re really quite cute. So, I got 4 candles and guess what he bought himself? 2 pairs of Versace shades! Um. What’s wrong with this picture. *lol* I’m really not that materialistic, but when I saw them bad boys, I have to admit I did feel a tad bit jealous. Forget the fact that there’s no sun outside and it’s been rainy for 2 weeks straight! *lol* He promised to try (notice how he promises to try, not promises to DO…lol) to take me and the kids to this brand new upscale shopping center this weekend. Heck, all he has to do is give me some money and a bus pass to Target….I’ll be alright.
