Punky’s First Haircut

We have an awesome place in town for little kid haircuts. I know that $15 isn’t exactly cheap for a 10 minute toddler haircut, but it was well worth it! We had such an awesome time at the Shear Madness for Kids place in our area. If you don’t know if you have one, you should check your area. It really was worth it and we can see our little girl’s eyeballs again!


It was so great! They had her sit in a little pink car and let her drive it around while they snipped away the bangs and gave her some face framing layers to make a cute little fall hairstyle. Well worth the $15 bucks and they let me take all the pictures for her first haircut that I wanted!







We celebrated our haircut adventure with yummy ice cream from Yogurtini.


And we decided that she’s a little geek. She had her gamer pajamas on and she put on her dragon hat and glasses. I think she thought if she put a disguise on, I wouldn’t notice the attempt to steal Mommy’s dinner!


In the end, we have had a few weeks of decent time. Today, Punky was a sad and puny sickly one today, she threw up violently, according to her Mama today. She has been running a low grade fever and some massive blowouts. Oi. Hopefully she feels better tomorrow!

On the NaNo front, I am above the goal with word count, so in that realm, Fred Phelps still isn’t getting my money! 😉 19, 403 words down! I’m almost halfway there!

Halloween and NaNoWrimo

So, we had a great Halloween, we just jumped on the bed like normal. We didn’t take Punky trick or treating because well, she’s still too small to enjoy it and the candy really is just for us! But, I did dress up at work and it turned out pretty awesome. We did a family themed Halloween costume this  year. Punky was Snow White, I was the Evil Queen and K was Mirror, Mirror. It was awesome fun. 🙂

Here are some of my favorites from this year’s Halloween season.







We got a family picture, but Punky was pretty scared of me in my costume, so she wouldn’t sit still for a nice picture.  Overall we had a great time though this season.

Now that it’s November, I am participating in National Novel Writing Month. For those who don’t know what it is – click the link and join me, it’s not too late!! Basically, the goal is to write 50,000 words in a novel for the month of November. I’ve been doing it for 6 years and I have won every year. Last year, it was close.

Last year and this year I am making a bet with myself. If I don’t win, I have to send $50 to the Westboro Baptist Church and benefit Fred Phelps. Whom I’m sure all of you know the infamous hate filled church leader. I do not want to send him money. THUS, I will be winning this NanoWriMo! Day One: 2177 words written!

Wish me luck, because frankly, I’m not as prepared as in years before. I will be writing nonstop for this month!! Let’s get the writing on and ready to go!

Hope all of you had a great Halloween and are looking forward to the Thanksgiving season.
