Happy Lit Up Halloween in G-Town!

Do you know what the FOX says? 


APD Halloween Safety tips for Kids & Adults and also home safety:
It is also important to ensure that your home is safe and accessible to trick-or-treaters. There are some very simple steps to make the evening safe for everyone.
  • Turn on your porch light
  • Move lit jack-o-lanterns off the porch where kids get bunched up when trick-or-treating in groups
  • Remove objects from your yard that might present a hazard
  • Drive slowly all evening. You never know what little “creature” may suddenly cross your path
  • Report any suspicious or criminal activity to the police

Remember the APD will be out with 'No-Refusal Halloween' going on through Saturday, November 2nd.
The Austin Police Department will enforce a “No-Refusal” initiative for Halloween 2013. The initiative will start at 9:00 p.m. Thursday, October 31, 2013 and end at 5:00 a.m. Saturday, November 2, 2013. Please Don't Drink & Drive!

Learned some new skills....

Recently, I had a blast at the Village @ Westlake Trick or Treat Festival and made some new friends, who tried to teach me some new skills!  I think I need to keep my day job.. what do you think?

Adam, a Fantastic Balloon Artist/Twister and more, from Art For Your Head, taught me how to make my first balloon animal.




Have you heard of Acro-Yoga?  I hadn't  until a few days ago. Joy & Melanie are Fantastic at it, and talked me into learning a move.   I have ALOT more practicing to do.. LOL...

Get Holiday Ready...

I dropped by the Home Consigment Center/Shops Parkway Bee Cave to see what's new w/ Janet & the Crew.  Lots of new sofa sets from Macy's, cool vintage pieces and I even made a new friend for Haloween. 



You can definitely get ready for the holidays w/ the HCC. Save money & make money at both locations.  They are taking consignments.  There's also a Fabulous selection of jewelry at both locations.  They both have different pieces.   Say hey to Janet & the Crew  w/ Rose in Jewelry @ the HCC Shop Parkway Bee Cave/South & North in th Arbor Walk w/ Tracy and the crew  w/ Herb in Jewelry!  Great idea for a holiday gift too.. HCC Gift Card!  Holiday Treasure Shopping Rocks!

The Counselor

Something about drugs, and El Paso, and Mexico, and money. Honestly…they kept everything so vague throughout the whole movie I don’t know if I ever quite “figured” it out.

Expectations going in:

Well…if a movie has Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, and Michael Fassbender…I assume it is going to be a GREAT movie.

Also:

Another reason this movie should have been GREAT…it was written by Cormac McCarthy who wrote All The Pretty HorsesNo Country for Old Men, and The Road. This was his screenwriting debut.

My Take:

1. I had a physical reaction to this movie it was so bad.  

2. Cameron Diaz is a really bad actress. She should stick to romantic comedies. 

When the movie went from bad to worse:

Just wait until you see what Cameron Diaz has sex with. Just wait. Have fun watching that. I am forever scared.

 Should I rent it?

I can’t even fully support this movie as a rental.

Anything good about the movie?

 Cameron Diaz has pet cheetahs. That is kind of cool.

Good date movie?

If a guy took a girl to this movie on a first date…it would be the worst first date ever.

Bottom Line

I am sure you are not going to take me at my word, and go see this movie for the same reason I did…a great cast. Just don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Here's a Friday Funny...

Halloween is coming up, and Michael Jackson's Thriller is a Halloween staple.   I ran across this animated version, and I wanted to share it w/ you!  If you are enjoying Halloween early this weekend. Have Fun and be Safe! Don't drink and drive!




Halloween costume idea.. get a bodysuit, add some led lights and your set. Although the 22 month old is much cuter runing in the dark giggling! This video has over 8 million hits..  Cool idea her daddy had, but I'd probably be a bit scared if I saw that running in the dark at me, would you?
