: )

it's the little things that can make my day or week and one of those little things happened to me today! my friends dad is redoing his house and had this antique door that he wasn't sure what to do with. He looked at me and said (in french) "Le veux -tu?" or "do you want it?" I looked at him and with the biggest smile i could muster said "Oui!" lol so i'm now the proud owner of an antique door. it comes with the original lock and skeleton key and i'm not 100% sure what i'm going to do with it yet but i know it's going to be fantastic. i'm a happy girl.

au revoir to ASOS CURVE and Torrid

remember i told you about those 2 skirts that i was SO excited to get. well i ordered them and also a pair of the   
LuLu Cognac Knee-High boot  from torrid. Well last week i get a reciept from the post office saying that i missed a delivery and can pick it up at the post office after i paid the extra taxes of $39.28!!! the skirts cost me $95  and i have to pay $40 in taxes a fees?!?! I couldn't justify doing that so i declined the skirts at the post office and didn't even have to pay the return shipping to asos which was awesome. my boots came in today and AGAIN close to $30 for the fees so needless to say i was pissed and the boots were also returned. I'm so ANGRY because the boots were supposed to be apart of my halloween costume!!! So, now i'm stuck having to wait for my refunds to come in and I probably won't have any good boots to wear with the costume. I could just wear a pair of heels but i really wanted the boots!

  :(  I'm very sad that I'm going to have to give up 2 of my favorite online shopping destinations only because i'm sure that more will follow.  

end rant

all dressed up

AND NO CAMERA! i left my camera in my girlfriends car  :(  I'm hoping she'll be able to drop it off tonight but that sucks for this adorable little number I have on right now.  :(

oh well.

my pumpkins!

so i'm awful at before and after lol 
just imagine that these guys looked pretty much like your average pumpkins before they were transformed!

this little guy was my first craft gluecreation. i actually made the glue with just equal parts white glue and water. just shake it up and your ready to go! the buttons were from my jar and were just hot glued around the pumpkin and stem.

 this charming lady did have a really unique stem but some of the guys were playing around with her and tore it off. i was not happy. 
so i decided to hide the fact that she was stemless by making her have a pretty little PUFF! lol
i bought the lace from the thrift store down the block for like 75 cents and just tied it with a rubber band and some left over ribbon. now she's sassy!

Lots Going On

   It's been pretty busy the past week or so. Lee's hours have been pretty random so we've been able to go to the gym like we used to do and it feels so great. I used to think people who spent hours at the gym were insane but we really do enjoy it. We have our own personalized circuit and it works so well for us. I hope we keep it up.
   We've also started working on my application to extend my visa. My residency still hasn't come through and if we don't put the application in before Nov. I might not be approved and may have to go back to the States for a while. It's nothing major but I definitely don't want to be taken away from Leevan so we're working hard to get the paperwork done.
   Leevan may have a new job opportunity! This call center business just isn't working out and we're just not sure that they're going to promote him as fast as we would like. Anywho, the temp agency he was working with found him an accounting job that's 6 month with possibility of a permanent position. The job pays a considerable amount more than what he is being paid and that means more savings for us! So, he has an interview next week and hopefully gets the job and can WOW them with his amazing personality and business savvy skills. lol
   Remember how I told you that we were going to stay with our friends until we were able to buy a house? Well that might have changed. Our friends are having some marital issues and it's slowly becoming  awkward to live in this house. We only see them 3 days a week which makes it kind of bearable but that doesn't make it any easier. We know that we need to give them time to themselves so we've been trying to save what little we can and start looking for possible apartments. We're not rushing out of here but we definitely think that by the spring we'll be gone. We want to find an apartment that we LOVE. mainly because we really really don't want to have to move again until we're ready to buy. So, the search is on.
   Another, "just thought you'd know" Lee and I both have Baby Fever! I never knew that men could get it but it's happened. We want a baby, I guess it makes sense to WANT to have a baby here because that's what everyone does! lol I'm not kidding! Everyone is pregnant here! You can't go outside without seeing like 10 pregnant women at the mall or grocery store. Something is definitely in the water. Luckily our fever hasn't spread to my belly because I'm still without insurance so that would be problem but we wouldn't hate if it did spread within the next year or so. Especially if Lee get's this job and I get my residency papers/insurance soon. I've been looking into midwives/home deliveries because after seeing MANY MANY documentaries and tv shows I know it's something I want IF I'm physically able to do so. I know the hospitals aren't like the ones in the States. It's not a business here which is great but idk...I still love the idea of bringing my baby in this world very peacefully and on my own time and in a way I feel comfortable in. Whenever I watch a home birth on video I feel a sense of calm and relaxation. When I see a hospital birth I feel anxious and scared!  lol
So, yeah....BABY!  lol  as my hubby says " not now but soon"  :)

Anywhos, that's about it for now. I'm sure I'll have an update for you guys in a week or so and hopefully that'll include that news of Lee's new job!   *FINGERS CROSSED*

Halloween Costume!

I finally figured out what my costume is this year! I'm going as a Vampyre from the series

The House of Night is basically Hogwarts for Vampires for any of you that may be interested! Anywho, there's a vampyre called Prof. Lenobia and she's teaches the Equestrian Class. I'm pretty much going as her but without the wig and eye color! lol She's in a riding outift the whole time and she has really intricate tattoos on her face. I've been working on the tattoos for a while now and think i pretty much have them figured out. I'm obviously going to sex up the outfit and I can't wait to see it all come together!   :D

what are you dressing up as?
