If your in the market for a new faucet to update your kitchen or bathroom, you can find a variety of Moen faucets at great prices and fast delivery at Faucet.com.
I love my Moen faucets and will never buy another brand again.
I am in a wedding in November, about 8 weeks after the birth of Chunky Monkey I had to go by the dress for the wedding. The bottoms I knew I would be smaller so I bought the smaller size, but the top was very tight in the larger size so I figured It would be fine.
Now this dress is very flattering on me compared to what other dresses would look like. So from the very beginning I have been very happy with my friends choice of bridesmaid dress.
I went today to have the dress altered. The bottom fit great, it's loose around the waist (now mind you this is the smaller size that did not fit at all, there was no way I was zipping it up 1 year ago) but not too loose. Just perfectly comfortable.
However, The top was extremely large. It was falling off of me, so I sent the seamstress to see if they had a smaller size. They did and it fit me absolutely perfect. So now not only is it flattering, but I think I look Amazing, and I will be absolutely happy wearing this dress for an entire evening in front of a crowd. I am in now way shape or form conceited, but I am however very proud of myself because although I have not lost all of the weight I wanted to by this time, I have gone down an entire size if not more than I was before I got pregnant with Chunky Monkey and that alone makes me extremely happy!
I am also happy that this dress is so versatile, that I could wear it again after the wedding to a formal event. :-)

Roasted pumpkin seeds have a nutty flavor and are packed with protein and fiber. Pumpkin seeds are delicious toasted and salted, but they're even better flavored with sweet and savory spices.
How to Roast Pumpkin Seeds
- Rinse pumpkin seeds under cold water and pick out the pulp and strings. (This is easiest just after you've removed the seeds from the pumpkin, before the pulp has dried.)
- Place the pumpkin seeds in a single layer on an oiled baking sheet, stirring to coat. If you prefer, omit the oil and coat with non-stick cooking spray.
- Sprinkle with salt and bake at 325 degrees F until toasted, about 25 minutes, checking and stirring after 10 minutes.
- Let cool and store in an air-tight container.
Why Carve Pumpkins?
This was taken from Allrecipes.com
The story of the Jack o'Lantern comes from Irish folklore. Jack was a crafty farmer who tricked the Devil into climbing a tall tree. When the Devil reached the highest branch, Jack carved a large cross in the trunk, making it impossible for the Devil to climb down. In exchange for help getting out of the tree, the Devil promised never to tempt Jack with evil again. When Jack died, he was turned away from Heaven for his sins and turned away from Hell because of his trickery. Condemned to wander the Earth without rest, Jack carved out one of his turnips, took an ember from the devil, and used it for a lantern to light his way. He became known as "Jack of the Lantern."

I am back.. I've missed blogging for about 1 week and I am very sad. I've had a lot going on to keep my busy though. My sister-n-law had a Halloween party this weekend. So I spent Friday helping her with the preparations, and all day yesterday making the food, dressing up, and then the party. It was fun, the kids had a blast. I was a Pirate, Hubby was a Pimp, Monkey was Darth Vadar & Chunky Monkey was Yoda. It was hysterical and so cute at the same time.
I PROMISE as soon as I get a cable to upload my photo's to this new computer that my wonderful hubby got me! I got an Apple Mac Book. So far it's been fun, I'm just learning it so please forgive me if my posts are not up to par.
I hope to have a cable for my camera by Wednesday for Wordless Wednesday!!!!
