Dia De Los Muertos

So as a Christian I know that Halloween is a pagan holiday. No I haven’t done any research and really don’t care to because I get the jist of it. I really haven’t celebrated since I’ve been married because my hubby has a background of not celebrating anything. I have never taken my son Trick or Treating or dressed him up in costume. Oh well, I did 2 years ago…it was just a $5 t-shirt from Wal-Mart that looked like a pirates outfit, it came with a bandanna that was supposed to be tied around his face to make it look like he had a skull mouth. Why in the world they would design something to tie around a toddlers face I have no clue! So since it was a bandanna I just put it around his head, duh! Anyways, he looked like a little gangster to say the least. Here were all these little kids, one boy, same age, dressed like a cute pumpkin – an than there was my thug. But I digress.

As a Christian I know that it’s probably wrong for me to support and encourage such tomfoolery as celebrating a day that celebrates death. But ignorance is bliss, isn’t it. Now as a non-believer you might think to yourself, get over it Jesus freak! I’m just dressing up, eating boat loads of candy, drinking “punch” out of bowl with dry ice, and passing out next to a vampire, I’m not REALLY celebrating the dead. But once you know the truth it’s hard to go backwards.

Simply put the day distracts the focus off of God and onto things that mean nothing. Hanging skulls in the house. Running around trying to put together the best outfit. Knocking on people’s door to get candy (would you knock on someone’s door to tell them about God? Didn’t think so). And lets get to the obvious, it celebrates the Devil. This here my friends is quite the most important. Because as innocent as those cute, glitter, horn headbands are they influence your mind and your spirit in ways that seem subtle but can be quite destructive.

So the bitter truth is I don’t like Halloween anymore. Not because I don’t want to – because I do. But it’s because I know too much. When you pray for wisdom, God holds nothing back.

And believe me this theory goes to EVERY holiday including Christmas. So one must not take these traditional holidays lightly for the burden it can have on your life can be heavy.

So I posted all these costumes in hopes you might buy my shoes! Ya, I admit it I am a heel pusher. Whether its pumpkins or money things can distract us from what really matters, God.  I pray that you all have a safe and happy holiday. More than anything I hope you give some more thought to what I wrote and maybe forgo the Trick or Treating to maybe just giving.

Snickers Is The Devil

Okay, so I think you can figure out that my diet is out the window. Not that I have given up or anything just a temporary hiatus. Ah, who am I kidding. I love food – more specifically I love chocolate! I haven’t had chocolate in days and that first bite into that beautiful snickers bar was like I just took a bite out of heaven.

Alright, so eating in small portions I can do. Choose a piece of fruit over soda I can do (most the time). My main problem is exercise. No I am not one of those people who hates exercising. I actually enjoy it very much. And the more invigorating and painful, the better. My problem is how do I get started? When do I get started?

Problem #1 (excuse #1): I am busy all day with the kids.  I only have a one sitter stroller at the moment. (I scour craigslist for a good double jogger stroller all the time.)

Problem #2 (excuse #2): The hubby likes me to hang out with him in the evenings. Granted, he wouldn’t die if I left for an hour or two – but I feel so bad.

Problem #3 (excuse #3): It’s dark outside. I can’t (don’t want to) spend the money on a Gym pass right now. I love going to a high-school a city over and running on the race track – but it’s getting dark sooner now – and what if I get attacked?!

Please, any abuse slash criticism that can kick me into high gear is much appreciated. Ya, I just gave you permission to make me feel bad!!

PS – I literally just finished that snickers bar (I ate half while I was making my lunch and was saving the rest for later.) Get thee behind me satan!

Okay, I googled snickers image andsince I’ve been doing costumes all week I thought I would continue the theme.

If I saw you at a party wearing this don’t be surprised if you saw me with my arms out like a zombie, drooling, and saying snniicccckkkkeerrssss.

Sempi Fi

“The camouflage utility coat will be worn outside the trousers. Sleeves may be rolled up at the option of local commanders. When authorized, utility sleeves will be rolled with the inside out, forming a roll about three inches wide, and terminating at a point about two inches above the elbow. ”

Sad face, these hot boys can no longer roll their sleeves up. The marines view rolling up of the sleeves as a sign of pride, something that makes them different than all the other services.

Too bad boys and girls…

Probably The Wrong Time

Yay! I am getting ready to lose this weight I keep bitching about! I really wanted to have someone to kind of go through it with via blogging. So I searched weight loss and what do you know…found a gal getting ready to do the same thing. I am so stoked. I usually do weight watchers but don’t know when I will be able to make it. I really don’t care for meetings, I can motivate myself pretty well. I just need to get the calculator thing and figure out my points.

This is probably the worst time to start the diet. Hello, I’ve been craving candy corn since mid-September. I have no idea how I have even avoided buying those huge Halloween bags of candy. Don’t get me started on Christmas and Thanksgiving! Pumpkin pie – breakfast/lunch/dinner – yes please!

Besides my main motivation – vanity, I really need to do this for my health. A lot of members in my immediate family have diabetes. I crave sweet stuff all the freaken time! Not to mention I want to have 2 more babies. There is no way I can add more weight on top of what I have already. Did I mention the baby was 8 pounds when I delivered her! Forget about it, no more out-of-shape, sour patch kid craving pregnancies for this chick!
