Cheater cheater pumpkin eater

Ren and I are hooked on this show called "Cheaters". If you've never seen it before, they spy on people to see if they can catch them in the act of, well, cheating. We love seeing the ho-down showdown when someone gets busted cheating on their significant other. Well, apparently, I've been watching too much cheaters and I need to cut down because last night I dreamt that R had caught me walking into a Subway to have lunch with an ex of mine. It was scary at the time, but now I just find it funny. Yeah, no more cheater-watching late at night, it's giving me nightmares.

The Halloween countdown clock's a tickin' and only 22 more days!!! I finally found a costume for Chris. He's going to be baby Jack Jack from the Incredibles. I bought myself a T-shirt too, so that I can also kind-of dress up too. Now, normally, I put WAY more effort into my costume than just wearing a t-shirt, but since I'll be doing the haunted house now, there's not really any opportunity for me to actually wear said costume, plus, I don't think spandex from head to toe would be a good look for me these days. I couldn't convince R to wear tights either, so only Chris will be fully incredible this Halloween. Ren and I will just have to settle for credible.

Speaking of the haunted house, it's still in the works. I'm making progress, slowly, but surely. I've got the path planned out already, all I have to do is some measuring and plastic cutting here and there. I made my asylum sign for the front of the house, and it came out really cool if I do say so myself. I'm noticing that it is much harder to pull off a haunted house this year because I've got the little man at home now, so I don't have all the free time in the world anymore. I usually only get to work on my HH (haunted house) stuff after Chris has gone to bed. Hopefully I'll get everything done on time. My other big issue is that I still need more volunteers because some of my previous volunteers don't seem like they want to participate this year (I won't name any names), so if you want to come and help out for 3 hours on Halloween night (and I actually know you in real life), then let me know! All you have to do is act crazy (and if you're my friend, you probably don't even have to act). I've got about 9 volunteers so far, but like my friends at the Haunted Mansion like to say, there's "always room for one more".

Which leads me to this, check out the cute little plaque that I got for my house! It's Amanda's fault because she found it online and sent me the link. Good going Amanda. Oh and I got this little t-shirt for Chris. Too cute, if you like skulls that is. ha ha. Well, that's my shopping update for the day. Stay tuned for my next installment where we try to figure out why I can't walk out of a Target without spending at least $70 bucks. Ta ta!

I don't think we should go to Target together anymore...=/
You spent $70, but I spent $80!
