Lunatics on the Lose Blog soon.)
Like most one year olds, Brooklyn adores Sesame Street. (specifically Elmo !) So that was the theme for the party. Jenn planned and worked so hard to pull it all together, and she did an awesome job. Everything was beautiful, and I think everyone had a great time.
It was so wonderful to get out, and actually be able to enjoy the weather for a change. To be honest, the hot weather has kept me inside far too much this year. I'm convinced that being stuck inside has not been good for my health, or my mental state. Now that things have finally started to cool off, I'm going to make it a point to get out as much as possible - I've really missed my outside time. Being cooped up in the house has made me into a depressed, cranky, old woman - I don't like it.
Tomorrow, (after I walk my dogs) I plan on loading up anyone who wants to come, and do our annual Halloween inspiration field trip. I know that most of the stores have already started stocking their Halloween merchandise, and I've heard that the local Halloween Spirit store is open already. We'll mostly do a lot of window shopping, probably won't buy anything just yet. Although, my hubby has promised to buy me a couple of fog machines this year !!! (I saved up all my aluminum pop cans and tabs in order to get it) I'm very excited, and hopefully, it will help to get everyone else into the holiday spirit. My husband has been a total zombie this year, but that really doesn't count, because he's really not very scary. (He mostly spends his time in bed.)
So . . . I need to get myself off to bed - big day tomorrow.
