So I have been a very bad blogger. It has taken me about two months to put this post up, but in my defense...yeah I have no excuse.

So about two months ago, my friend and I went to Nashville for the day. We had a lot of fun visiting the little shops and walking around downtown.
I got a picture with Elvis. I don't know, but I think he may have been an impersonator...

We got pictures with the giant boot, but my favorite boot picture was the one with my friend and the random man who asked to be in the picture. Him and his friend thought it was so funny that he asked, we just couldn't tell him no.
This was one of my favorite parts of the day. We went to a little ice cream parlor (which had really good iced coffee drinks I might add). The tip jar had this sign on it:

Who can resist giving to a cause like that?
Right across the river was the Titans stadium. So cool! Too bad I'm a Steelers fan...

Since we splurged on iced coffee, we went ahead and splurged on cupcakes, too. But not just any cupcakes. Gigi's Cupcakes. Mmmm. I got the Tiramasu and my friend got the Chocolate Attack (that's not the real name, but it should have been). If you are ever in Nashville, I would encourage a pit stop at Gigi's Cupcakes. Just sayin'.

Final Verdict: Nashville is a cool place to visit. But, I better not do it too often or I will have to be there buying a new a larger size.

Trick Or Treat, Trick Or Treat, Give Me A Sucker To Eat!

I spent Halloween with my sister, her husband, and my two favorite kids. I have named my little neice. She will be Princess. This is her name because she was a princess ballerina for Halloween. She was so pretty!

My sister and I took her two days before Halloween to get her little ears pierced.

Prettiest. Baby. Ever.

For Halloween, my sister dressed up as Sleeping Beauty, and my brother-in-law was Prince Philip. They were adorable.

My brother-in-law loved his costume, except for he forgot his shoes had felt bottoms until he ran full-speed into the linoleum-floor kitchen...

Magellan was an alien robot. He loved being in his costume as much as his daddy did. He didn't fit in the carseat because he was so puffy, but he cried when we had to take it off of him!

We took him trick-or-treating around our old neighborhood after we scared some friends of ours. Magellan doesn't quite understand the goldmine of sweet treats that were at his disposal. The only candy he has discovered so far are suckers. And he loves suckers. At one house, he actually pushed the man's hand full of Snickers bars away and grabbed a sucker out of the man's bowl.

That's my nephew. He knows what he wants.

I dressed up as Medusa, the greek goddess. Not because of Percy Jackson or Clash of the Titans, though. G.I. Joe always calls me Medusa because of my crazy, curly, wild hair (especially when I first wake up...frightening! I was just about punched in the face by my brother-in-law in the middle of the night because of it!).

Here is my sister and I just before the Halloween party at our church.

My sister teased up my hair and fixed rubber snakes all in it. Then, a friend of ours did my make-up. She did an amazing job. I especially loved my fake eyelashes with golden tips.
