Happy Halloween!

Today, I give myself permission to eat candy to my heart's content. I'll be the one dressed up like a pimp in the corner of the room with a dozen lollipops hanging out of her mouth. Seeing as how I'm living like a nun in all other respects (no caffeine, no alcohol, no excessive amounts of chocolate), I think the candy thing is a fair indulgence, especially as I'll be tonight's designated driver. Ya know, I was lamenting this whole DD thing for awhile, but then I became so thankful that my closest friends are still childless and our Halloweens consist of solely 'adult activities'. This day is nevertheless a reminder of all that has not yet taken place in my life and also, stands as the gateway to the holiday season, the hardest time of the year for all of us. Still, I wish you a Happy Halloween and hope you're able to find a little joy in the holiday. :)

Happy Halloween to you too Shelby!

DH and I intend to go out this evening. I don't want to be here when all the cute little Tinkerbells, and Spidermans and Ninja Turtles come knocking. DH and I have decided we'll go out and have dinner some place.

(It will be interesting to deal with my "fan pull" when I go out tho! LOL)

Happy Halloween too and treat yourself!

Yeah. I totally relate. I am going out of town to party with lots of reckless childless young adults (like myself). I think my follicles went out of town too, since there is no sign of ovulation. Does that mean I can have a lot of pina colada jello shots?

What are these pina colada jello shots you speak of? If this latest doesn't take, I think I might have to try a sample....

I, too, can so relate. After offers to hang with my mommy friends and their costumed kiddos (no THANK you), I was so happy to hang with party-happy adults only on Halloween this year! I still can not believe my friend texted me at 1am with a photo of her 8-month's old Halloween onesie. Did she really think I needed to see that?

Shelby, I will try to steal the very secret recipe from my Batgirl-friend who posted the party. Now that I've tried them I swear to their unique healing properties--not only did I have the best times ever since my IF journey, but I also ovulated the next day (which probably doesn't matter in the larger scheme of things, but still!)

Hope you had a great Halloween!! We spent our with all our neighbors in the cul-de-sac where we handed out candy to all the little ones. I knew it would be hard so I dressed up (only one who did) and pretended to be someone else. Sigh.
