What Is The Best Costume That You Saw Today?

I think the best costume that I saw today was a little Lion boy named Caden! He was adorable! His costume was great and he was the nicest lion I have ever met. His roar wasn't even scary, though he tried real hard to make it that way.

I really didn't have many people come by for candy. I need to live in a more kid friendly neighborhood. I did see a grim reaper walking across the Wal-Mart parking lot today and that made me laugh.

So what is the best costume that you saw today?

What Are You Really Horrible At?

I'm totally horrible at riding a bike. I seriously had training wheels till I was like 12. No lie! I had the training wheels and finally my dad said I had to take them off. That I couldn't have them anymore. So we took them off and then I just wrecked my bike all the time. And then I quit riding it because I was sick of falling off the stupid thing or running into things.

A couple years ago I tried to ride a bike again and it was still all bad. Falling over and embarrassment. I can do without it! What's crazy though is I love bikes. I'm always fascinated by them. I think they are pretty. Other people have pretty bikes and I always want one. Then I try and about kill myself. So I don't think I should try a bike again anytime soon.

So what are you really horrible at?

Do You Dress Up For Halloween

MeowKat left this question for me in the comments yesterday. And the answer is a very excited YES!!!! I love Halloween for many reasons but the #1 reason is that it is the one day out of the year that you can be anything you want and no one judges you. Wanna be a pregnant nun it's okay, a street walker super! If you wanna dress up as a clown or a witch it's just fun. So yes I will be dressing up for Halloween and this year I will be a lady bug. I'm the momma lady bug and Miss Lena my puppy will be dressing as a baby lady bug. She is not as excited about Halloween costumes as I am but I'm sure it will be great fun!

So do you dress up for Halloween and if so what are you going to be?

What Have You Done Today?

Today I had a garage. I got up at 4:30 to get ready and I'm worn out! But I made 300 bucks so it's worth it. That will pay off a credit card so that makes me a happy girl. Not to mention I got rid of a lot of stuff. That is always a good thing! This evening my dog ate some pumpkin potpourri things when I wasn't watching so I've been cleaning up dog puke for the past 15 minutes. It looks disgusting but at least it doesn't smell bad. Fun times around here... :-)

So what have you done today?

Don't forget tomorrow is Sunday so feel free to leave a question in the comments and I'll answer it. Hope you are having a great weekend!

What is Your Favorite Outfit

My favorite thing to wear would have to be my Old Navy Fleece Pullover and Fleece PJ pants. I love it! It's so not cute or becoming but it is way comfy and warm and safe. When I don't feel good that is the first thing I put on. Makes me feel better every time.

So what is your favorite outfit?

What Do You Fear Losing The Most

This question comes courtesy of Cricket. And I have two things that I fear losing the most. They are tied so closely that I don't know which I fear the most so I'll tell ya both of them. One would be my self-respect. I would hate to lose that! And the other would be my entire family. I fear like a huge freak accident that would wipe out my entire family and leave me very alone. So losing all of them or my self respect would be the worst!

What do you fear losing the most?

Thanks also for all the great comments. I've had many new visitors lately and I sure appreciate the interaction. I so enjoying getting a chance to know my readers better!!!

What Is The Dumbest Movie You Have Ever Seen

Okay seriously I watched Syriana tonight and it has to be the dumbest movie I have ever seen! It jumped all over the place and never made sense. It was pretty frustrating. It could have been an awesome movie. They just needed to focus on less story lines and stick with them long enough to make sense...

So what is the dumbest movie you have ever seen?

What Is The Temperature

It's a whole 34 degrees here tonight. The high today was 39! And it poured most of the day. This was the first day of cold here. I kinda like it. I had forgotten how much I love being all bundled up and warm. I have really cute winter clothes! I love that!!!

So what is the temperature where you are at?

Also tomorrow is Sunday so be sure to leave a question if you can think of one and I'll answer it!

How Many Hits Do I Have

Okay it's been less than a month since I hit the 2000 mark. Today I'm getting real close to 3000 hits! I'm digging that! Thanks so much for all the visits.


What Kind of Toothpaste Do You Use

Today's question comes courtesy of my best friend Darby (Who I will be talking about on XM channel 156 tomorrow with OPRAH). Darby wanted to know what kind of toothpaste I use. I use Crest Cool Mint Gel! Love the stuff. I've used it since I was a little kid and couldn't use anything else. I'm not into the paste, YUCK! I don't like the funky flavors. Who needs all that. I eat food for flavor, I brush my teeth for clean. So Cool Mint Gel is the thing for me.

What kind of toothpaste to you use?

What Is Your Sign

I don't really follow the horoscope thing very regularly. I read it every once in awhile but I don't have to read it. But I do think that my sign is pretty acurate. I'm a Cancer. That's a crab. I think that is funny. Sometimes I'm crabby! Shocking I know!

So what is your sign?

What Are You Allergic To

I am allergic to penicillin, Sulfa and the pill form of Toradol. Crazy huh! I'm expensive when I need an antibiotic. It's not fun! I hate paying a fortune for meds. But it's better than getting hives and having a hard time breathing which is what happens if I take the stuff.

So what are you allergic too?

Do You Like Thunderstorms

I love thunderstorms. There is just something relaxing about hearing pouring rain. I love watching lightening, as long as I'm inside. And thunder is an amazing thing to listen to! I just love storms.

So do you like thunderstorms?

Tomorrow is Sunday which of course means that I answer one of your questions. So feel free to leave me one in the comments.

What Is Hiding In Your Refrigerator

I found a pie in the back of my refrigerator that someone brought when my mom died. So that pie is 6 1/2 weeks old. I believe it may have been Key Lime at one point but now it's a penicillin pie! It was pretty scary looking.

So what is hiding in your refrigerator?

Who Got Tagged Part Two

Okay Julie over at Flip This Body tagged me to do this Halloween Meme a couple days ago and I'm just now getting it done. At least it is before Halloween! Morgan from It's a Blog Eat Blog World created this fun meme so check him out!

1. What's the scariest movie you have ever seen? Hands down it's Birds! That movie scared the heck out of me. Thousands of birds attacking people. Oh no that just didn't work for me. I was scared of birds for years. I'm still not real fond of them!

2. What is your favorite Halloween costume from childhood? I was a present one year. That was kinda fun.

3. If you had an unlimited budget what would your fantasy costume be for this year? I do not know....

4. When was the last time you went trick or treating? 8th grade. It was actually snowing and freezing cold that year. MISERABLE!

5. What's your favorite Halloween Candy? Kit Kats! Love them!!!

6. Tell us about a scary nightmare you have had. I had this nightmare once that I was a little girl, maybe 8 or 9 and my whole family, parents, siblings, cousins, aunts, uncles everyone was on a trip somewhere. We were all together and there was this fire. And everyone was stuck in their hotel room. I was the only one that got out and survived and I had no one left to take care of me. Quite a nightmare!

7. What is your supernatural fear? That a ghost will haunt me and do mean things to me...

8. What is your creepy crawlie fear? Snakes, don't like them, don't want them... YUCK!

9. Tell us about a time you saw a ghost or heard something go bump in the night. I went ghost hunting with some friends not to long ago and didn't see a ghost while we were out. But when I got home and developed my pictures I had some pretty odd things on film....

10. Would you ever stay in a real haunted house overnight? Possibly, it would depend who I was with.

11. Are you a traditionalist (just a face) Jack-O-Lantern carver, or do you get really creative with your pumpkins? I get creative with my pumpkins. I like to add some bats or a moon or a cat or something fun.

12. How do you decorate your home for Halloween. I have tons of Fall and Halloween decorations. I don't like scary stuff but love lots of pumpkins, corn shucks, scare crows, hay bales, leaves, etc.

13. What do you want on your tombstone? I just hope that someone can write that I was a pretty good daughter, sister, friend, and hopefully mom...

Okay I'm not tagging anyone. So you are all safe!

Have a Happy Halloween!!!

Who Was Your Favorite Teacher

My favorite teacher was Mrs. McDonald. Mrs. McDonald taught my 8th grade speech class. She also was in charge of the school plays. I was in all the plays at school and loved working with her. She was so much fun! She could talk in amazing accents, was always so animated, and treated all of us like we were the most important people in the world. I loved her!

Mrs. McDonald died in a car accident when I was a junior in high school. It was a weird experience. She was one of the first people that I really felt close to that died. I remember going to her funeral and being so amazed. The service was held in the largest church in town and was still overflowing with people. She touched a lot of her students over the years and really made an impact on people.

So who was your favorite teacher?

Who Was Your First Boyfriend or Girlfriend

My first boyfriend was John Paul VanDalsum. He was so cute! He had dark brown hair, great brown eyes, was tall, athletic, and super nice. One of the nicest guys I have ever known in my whole life. He was my "boyfriend" from about 4th grade thru 8th grade. We stayed friends through high school but I haven't seen him in years. He did get married a couple years ago. I saw the announcement in the local paper. I'm sure he is a wonderful husband. He was just a dang good guy!

So who was your first boyfriend or girlfriend?

So what is your dream vacation?

What Is Your Favorite Kind of Ice Cream

We were debating this over dessert tonight. There are two types of favorite ice creams in my opinion. The kind of ice cream you buy to have at your house, which then my favorite is Vanilla Bean. And then there is the kind of ice cream that you get when you are out and about like at an ice cream place. So then my favorite is cherry with chocolate chunks.

Tomorrow is Sunday so if you have a question just leave me a comment and I'll answer it.

What is your favorite kind of ice cream?

What's Your Favorite New Show of the Season

My favorite new show this season is Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. I'm so pleased with Matthew Perry! I had missed him so much. I actually am pretty impressed with the whole group on that show. The humor is good, the story is good, the actors are good. I'm just impressed. I think it will hang in and not get dropped anytime soon.

So what is your favorite new show of the season?

How Many Hits Do I Have

Wow I'm closing in on 2000 hits! When I started this blog not that long ago I didn't think that would happen this quickly. I should hit the 2000 mark by the end of the day! That's awesome to me. As I type this I'm at 1992 hits.

So how many hits do I have now.

What Does Your Name Mean?

My name is Jessica. I've been called Jess or Jessie for quite awhile now though. When someone calls me Jessica I'm just sure that I'm in trouble for something... Weird how that works.

But Jessica means "God Sees". I thought that was kind of cool. Here is some other info about Jessica that I found on the good old internet. Jessica was first used in this form by Shakespeare in his play 'The Merchant of Venice', where it belongs to the daughter of Shylock. Shakespeare probably based it on the biblical name (Yiskah), the name of a minor character in Genesis, which meant "YAHWEH beholds" in Hebrew.

I like the biblical spelling and pronunciation of my name. I think it is pretty. Maybe I should start going by that....

So what does your name mean?

Who Do You Call When You Have Something Important To Share

The first two people I call when I have something important to share are my sister Heather and my best friend Darby. And it is never in the same order. Sometimes I call Heather first sometimes Darby. Just depends on what it is I have to tell them and who I know will be available to take the call.

I used to always call my mom first. It's been a hard transition to not be able to call her. That is one of the things I miss the most. And now that a month has passed since she died I thought that would be easier but I caught myself just today thinking "I've got to call mom and tell her this." I don't know that it will ever go away... So whenever that thought crosses my mind I call Heather or Darby and just tell them instead... It's not the same but I'm so grateful I still have those two to call!

So who do you call when you have something important to share?

Where Is Your Favorite Place To Relax

This question comes courtesy of FabreFaction. My favorite place to relax is the zoo. We have a wonderful little zoo here in town. It's not to big but it is really a beautiful and peaceful place. The flowers and landscaping are amazing! I have fond memories of the zoo. My mom would take us there often and I've spent so much time with my God Daughter Bel at the zoo. Whenever I walk in the gates I instantly feel calmer. I associate the zoo with some of my favorite things, my friends, my family, and flowers...

One of the memorial funds when my died was for the zoo. Memorial contributions are still coming in. We are hoping that when it is all totaled we will have enough to purchase a bench in her memory to be placed in the zoo. That way when we visit we can sit on her bench and remember all the times she took us there.

So where is your favorite place to relax?
