Enjoying the giveaway posts

I have been updating my blog daily..a lot more then just once daily here lately. I have been joining a lot of the giveaways to share with everyone. I hope that you all enjoy entering the giveaways for all the cool and awesome things that are in the giveaways. I'm trying to keep them going and always putting up a variety of things so its not just beauty or fashion things as well as kids things etc.

I hope that you all have had a great first week of October, mine was a very very long and stressful week but it seems that this whole year has been full of ups and downs.

Looking forward to sharing more blogger opps/giveaways and hopefully soon some reviews with you all.

ABC-October 6 - How would you carve your jack-o-lantern this year? Funny, scary, not at all?

My kids will be in charge of carving the pumpkin. They are all teens and like to help and do silly things with them so I'm sure we will have a mix of happy, scary, weird pumpkins on our porch this year.

Pic for today - sky where I am

My son Chris took this pic. Today its chilly out! Nice cool looking sky and clouds.

Have a great weekend!

ABC-Oct 5 - Write about your favorite play or concert you've attended.

My most favorite concert I went too was on my 30th birthday 9 years ago. It was on the evening that the crap in Iraq started. March 19th ...
I had gotten tickets for me and one of my best friends Brian to go see our favorite band...Bon Jovi.  He had hurt his foot/ankle that week at work before the concert but he was a great friend and still came and got me and drove us to the concert.
We were hanging outside before it started and before getting in line and there was this lady that came up to us and asked if we wanted bracelets (I'm guessing she said that to us because Brian was on crutches!!) Well Brian said No because we didn't know what it was for and he didn't want to miss the opening act The Goo Goo Dolls. I believe it was...well come to find out later on...those bracelets were given to a select few that .... You will never guess this!!!!
The ones with bracelets got to go ON STAGE and sit there on stage while Bon Jovi played!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yep and here we was up in the "nose bleed" section with Brian on crutches and could of been on the flipping stage!!! But it was still my favorite concert because Bon Jovi is my number one favorite band of all time.

ABC-October 4 - Tell the story of your first time on a hayride, in a corn maze, in a haunted house, etc

Its been a long time ago since my first haunted house. I don't remember it that well but I'm pretty sure it was with my cousins. Wasn't anything that great fun or exciting..just a haunted house that one of there friends had done at the parents house which they did every year and we went to it.
I don't like the scary scary things, I like Halloween just not the icky part of it! I cant do without the blood and gore costumes etc. I like the witch costumes and things like that and a little bit of scariness like being a mummy or zombie or vampire is ok just not icky like Friday the 13th or other things like that.

Looking forward to doing more reviews

I am looking forward to doing more reviews on things in the near future. I love reviewing both services and products and giving my opinions about things. I use to do it more then I have recently so I am looking forward to the upcoming reviews of items. I am very excited and looking forward to doing a lot more.

Daily pic here at home

I'm going to post daily a pic of the beautiful sky/clouds here at home :)

I have taken some pics and my son Christopher also loves taking pics of the sky/clouds.

Casual Outfit

I think that this is a really cute looking outfit and it looks comfortable to go out in for everyday things.
What kinds of outfits do you like to wear? Dresses/skirts etc. I don't wear dresses or skirts...haven't bought either in years but I have thought about changing and trying something new ... I have long legs so I am thinking about showing them off maybe in the spring on my trip to Rome for my 40th birthday

ABC-Day 33- Scariest movie I've ever seen

Well considering that I absolutely hate and can't stand really scary movies..hmm I don't remember! I watched one with one of my best friends Lori but that was years and years ago and I don't remember which one it was...I think maybe the Texas Chainsaw one? Not positive though..either way I don't like scary movies..I might watch one if I had someone to grab ahold of and hide my head into!! LOL

First debate on tonight, will you be tuning in?

So the first presidential debate is on tonight..will you be tuning into watch it?
