Updates

My poor blog, it's so neglected lately. I saw my last post was in June, and decided to rectify that. So here's me, posting! About...Oh, heck. Lots of random things.
 
Even though I'm not pregnant, I've been having fun planning baby shower boards on Pinterest. I've decided if we do have another one, & it's a boy, I want to do a circus-themed baby shower. I love the bright colors I've picked (red, turquoise, & orange), and for desserts, I'd do cupcakes with animal cracker toppers, cotton candy in paper cones, white chocolate popcorn, & mini caramel apples. 


And if it doesn't happen as a baby shower, I can always do it for the kidlet's birthday party one year. He usually wants a cartoon-character themed bday party, but if I read him enough circus books, and use my motherly persuasion, I think I could bring him around. ;)

I am going to start painting our house soon. It's all flat paint right now, and so scuffed and dingy that it's driving me crazy. I've also decided to paint the ceilings (shoot me!), which should be a learning curve, because I've never painted a ceiling in my life. #arghgroan


I am still in the midst of revisions. I'll be amazed if I'm done by the end of the year with them. It is such a twisted up hot mess right now. But that's okay. I'll get there eventually, said the Little Engine that could.

I just put this book on hold at the library, Final Girls. I'm not a huge thriller/horror fan, but I read the sample online & it really hooked me. I think it's the combo of this woman having a gory past, but now she bakes. I like the juxtaposition of those two things together. Once covered in blood? Now you're covered in frosting! (Read the sample on Amazon, and you'll see what I mean.)

Happy Thursday everyone! We're one day away from the weekend...
