Halloween costume

This year, I wanted to go as the Price is Right. I convinced my friends into going along with this idea with the drawing below. 
Here is the final costume, complete with a Bob Barker. I designed the number boards and pasted them together with a tri-fold presentation board, held together with ribbon. Costume was a success! (but costume has also been completely destroyed by one night of chaos and wine. Oh well)

Waldo also popped into the scene. Naturally. 


Boots from Anthro that have my name written all over them...

Truth: Harem Pants look bad on everyone. Even people in a Harem. Even you, MC Hammer.


Ah, the season of Hocus Pocus is about to begin... LOVE this movie and all of it's Bette Midler glory... Kathy Najimy! SJP! Ahhh.....

Best natural facial exfoliators: stop wasting money on junk

Take me out to the ball game.

At Fenway seeing my beloved Red Sox
My friends, Friend's mom, me and My mom.

One of the best things about moving back to Maine (ahem, 2 years ago) is the ability to take my mom on these fun trips with my friends. She works with the mother of a good friend of mine so it makes it convenient for Mommy/Daughter stuff. Like this trip to the Red Sox: she had a bus buddy. I knew it was going to be a good trip when my mom brought out the cooler packed with beer, booze, cheese, crackers and PB+J sandwiches. 

 It's great getting to know my Mom now without the distractions of living at home, teen angst, mother's worry or anything else. Now, we actually want to spend time with each other- which is totally opposite of even just a few years ago. Don't get me wrong- we still drive each other totally batshit crazy. But now it's ok. So cheers to that.

Dempsey Challenge!

Actor and Mainer Patrick Dempsey hosts a wonderful fundraiser yearly for the Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope and Healing. I recently raised $460 through the Dempsey Challenge and biked 50 miles this past Sunday around Central/Lewiston Maine. I was biking in memory of a dear family friend who passed away in March 2010.

Here's some pictures! (including one with me and Patrick Dempsey at mile 36 in the race)
