Happy Halloween!

IN THE NEWS: According to World Magazine, "To draw new students, the University of California, Riverside, says it will try out a petting zoo at a Nov. 3 recruitment fair for local high-school students. But the university plans to have only one animal available for petting: cockroaches. University officials say the fair is geared to future science teachers and engineers who may not be completely grossed out by the idea of petting roaches. Even so, school representatives plan to have plenty of rubber gloves at the ready."

Well, I'm back from my little getaway! (And a little frazzled already.)

As soon as I came home from my vacation, I realized I had forgotten to bake cupcakes because now that I'm a "room mom", I'm supposed to be in charge of stuff like this. Ooops. They're made--and look pretty darn good.
Now I have rush out to a Halloween party this morning at my daughter's school. (I'm bringing the cupcakes and the plates/napkins, and if I don't show, there will be serious trouble afoot)

Oh, and I still need to get Halloween candy to give out tonight.

Oh, yeah, and I have one Snow White wig in my house that looks as if she fell on some pretty rough times and had to get a job working the streets. Actually, I can't even say that. The wig Julia Roberts wore in Pretty Woman looked MUCH better than this thing that's shedding big black hairs all over my beige rugs. I even tried cutting it last night. I'm not sure if Snow White wears bangs, but she has bangs now.

The wig doesn't look bad, but it needs more work. I have a five-year-old counting on me. (She's going as Snow White if you haven't had your coffee yet) But she'll be a "bride" for school, in the meantime. She looks beautiful. **sniff sniff**

Anyhew, I'm off to do a quick blogroll and leave for school. I will tell of my trip later.

Happy Halloween!

Cupcakes. Mmm! What a terrific mommy you are.

If I'd returned from a relaxing vacation, I'd be tempted to skip the baking and send my kiddies off to school with a few boxes of smarties.

Hope you had a nice time!

Petting roaches?! EEEEeeeeeeeeeeewww!

As for today, I'll take a little break at work to buy the candies too. I'd planned to do it this past weekend, but due to the tropical storm and the heavy rain, I couldn't get out of my house.

Awww... I'm sure your daughter will look adorable as Snow White. *wg*

Have a wonderful day (and night)! Happy Halloween!

I <3 cupcakes.

Would love to see this wig. I'm sure it's not as bad as you think. Or maybe it is...

Let us be the judge!

Roaches?! Unh-unh!

Even when you're not the class mom, you'll be baking. I can tell...from experience. Did two dozen chocolate chip cookies for one class and two dozen cupcakes for another. But it's my pleasure because I don't have time to be class mom anymore. Good for you!

Sounds like you had a great time! :) I'd love to see your daughter's pic.

I read a article under the same title some time ago, but this articles quality is much, much better. How you do this?
