So its Friday again! My parents are in town and we have a busy weekend planned! And then Monday is Halloween! This is my favorite time of year! Hope yall have a great weekend.

Remember head over to Wife of a Sailor to checkout what other Military Spouses are saying.

The best part of October was how busy we have been! There has been birthdays, fall activities, and now Halloween!.
The worst part of October was how quickly it went by.
For Halloween, I’ll be just myself unfortunately! I have been to busy trying to make Lexi’s costume to make anything for myself.But its ok my kids are going to look cute and thats all that matters! .
I hope that in November we have as much fun as we have had in December!.

So its Wednesday again and its time to link up over at *Dandelion Wishes* for another “We Want To Know Wednesday”. So head over and find out what others are saying!

This week is ALL about shopping!

1. Do you shop til you drop, or are you in and out as quick as possible?

Depends on what store I am in and do I have the kids! If I am grocery shopping I have usually planned my trips and can be in and out quickly in about 45 mins (if I am shopping for a weeks worth of food) If I am in a craft store…. well Shane usually puts a timer on me because I can spend HOURS!!!!! in Joann’s or Hobby Lobby!
2. Are you a price conscious shopper?

Yes I am learning to coupon and I also plan our weekly menus around the sales flyers. When I am doing craft projects I try to go when I have coupons or when they are running big sales and stock up then!
3. What store could you spend HOURS in?

Joann’s!!!! FABRIC FABRIC AND MORE FABRIC! Plus everything else! I could spend all day living in their fabric section. Also Hobby Lobby!
4. What is the most frivolous purchase you have ever made?

My embroidery/sewing machine! It hasn’t been used as much as I would like but I plan on putting it to good use NOW!
5. What was the last thing you bought for yourself?

A quilting table! It has made cutting fabric SO MUCH easier! Best purchase EVER!

Ok so I have a confession! I am kinda a procrastinator! There I said it! How is it that I have a week left until Halloween and I haven’t finished Lexi’s costume yet? How is it that I have not even ordered the tulle for Lexi’s thanksgiving outfit and haven’t even started on applique for the kids shirts? I haven’t taken ANY pictures for Christmas cards! And I haven’t posted ANY pictures of our October activities! I saw a breakdown of the rest of the year the other day and I realized that these next few months are going to FLY by. I am hoping to post some pictures soon.

{1} When was the last time you lost your temper?

The other day when Lexi was running a temp of 103.5 and the doctor sent me to the emergency room because it was almost closing time for them! I understand that they have lives too but when I have a 7 month old with a fever that high I would like to be seen NOW! Needless to say I went to the ER and am now actively looking for another doctor for the kids!

{2} What 3 words best describe you?

Loving, Caring, and a bitch when you mess with my family!
{3} What movie could you watch over and over again and never get tired of?

Gone With The Wind! Yes I know its like a 4 hour movies but I LOVE IT! Or Pretty Woman
{4} If you could do something dangerous, just once, with no risk, what would you do?

Sky Dive! I have always wanted to and will one day soon! It’s on my 30 before 30 list!
{5} Which is more important intelligence or common sense?

Common Sense because cause without it intelligence would really mean nothing!

Its Wednesday!!! Only 2 more days and it will be the weekend AGAIN! Cant wait! After last weekend and dealing with sick kids all weekend and pretty much sick kids so far this week we will need to get out and about this weekend!
