Happy Halloween!

I can't believe it's been 2 weeks since I've posted. I've almost forgotten how to do it! I really don't have much to say on the IF front, but I did have a fun evening last night carving pumpkins with my friend Tina. Here are some photos!

Tuesday=Awsome TV!

It's Fringe night. Every Tuesday I get more excited the closer it gets to 9:00pm. Why, you ask? FRINGE! It's the new sci-fi show on Fox. But tonight is even more special. One of my favorite shows premieres it's new season tonight - Eli Stone. I LOVE this show. Mainly because it reminds me of my all-time favorite tv show ever...Ally McBeal. I was a faithful viewer for all of it's seasons, and cried as I watched the finale. Eli Stone is so similar...great guest stars, showstopping song and dance numbers, crazy hallucinations, lawyers.... gotta love it!

Bronchitis and Project R.way

I finally went to the doctor today and I have bronchitis. :( I started a Z-Pack and will hopefully be on the mend soon. In other news, I recently discovered Facebook! I can't believe I didn't join sooner! What a great way to catch up with and keep in touch with people. I'm not putting anything on my profile about ttc, though. People IRL don't read this blog. Many of them do know about our struggles, but only the ones we choose to tell. Facebook would make it a little too public. It's been a good distraction during my sick days.

Mr. C. and I LOVE Project R.way. Last night we were so sad to see Jerrell go and Kenley make it into the top 3. Although I must admit, I adored Kenley's bridesmaid dress. They are all very talented designers... I just feel like Kenley's attitude is no good. I predict LeeAnn to be the winnner. Tim Gunn was so precious last night when he came into the work room and started crying, saying how much he cared about each of the designers. He is such a sweetie! Can't WAIT to see what happens next week!

Busy Weekend...Now I'm Sick

Mr. C. had a great time this past weekend! First, we went to see the movie "Blindness" on Friday night. It's based on the Nobel Prize winning novel by Jose Saramago. I've read the book which was graphic, horrifying at times, and gripping. It's a commentary on society and how it completely breaks down in the face of an epidemic of blindness. Anyway, the book was good, but I can't say the same about the movie. It didn't really translate onscreen and didn't capture all that the book did. It is definitely not a feel-good movie!

On Saturday, we went to see Michael Buble in concert. He is quite an entertainer! He performed in a large collesium and it was packed! His songs and voice remind me of a modern Frank Sinatra. On the way to the concert, we stopped by the Homecoming celebration at my college. It was fun to walk around campus and see all the changes and the things that will never change. I went to a small liberal arts school that I absolutely LOVED.

We also went to a special Mass this weekend. We aren't Catholic, but I have several friends that are, and one of them sent me an email about this service. It was for the remembrance of lost children. People who had lost a child through miscarriage, complications of pregnancy, stillbirth, etc. were invited to attend. It was a beautiful service with amazing music and touching words. About 10 minutes into the service, we got a text from our friends saying they had just had a baby boy. Wow, I lost it at that point and I cried and cried. Happy for them, sad for us.

Yesterday I woke up feeling awful. Sore throat, headache, body aches, etc. Yuck. I'm feeling better today, though. This reminds me that I need to go get a flu shot asap! Going to go back to sleep now...
