Smile Friday HALLOWEEN is nearly here edition!!
Last year I wore a skin-coloured onesy (whoa, bold.) and was a ballerina troll. Another year? iPod commercial. Year before that? Ninja Turtle.
This year? I have no effing clue! What are you going to be (disclaimer: I may or may not steal your idea)?

~ GPOYW: Halloween 2009 Edition - Ballerina Troll Edition ~  **

!! OMIGOD GUYS IT’S FRIDAY - I totally just thought it was Wednesday - AWKWARD!!!**

As you probably know, I take Halloween very seriously, and thus have already started brainstorming ideas for this year… but sincerely have NO ideas! Nearly two months until this epic date… must. think. of. something. good.

Side Note: Looking back on Halloween 09 photos, I am still shocked that I wore a naked onesy in public!

Things that make me happy…
My tutu. I really love it. Like, a lot. I plan on keeping it forever and giving it to my daughter one day. Yes.. it’s that awesome.  
I went to bed at 11pm last night. This is utterly fantastic and probably the first time I graced my bed sheets before 2am in over a week. My sleep was fantastic. 
The fall.  O.k, this topic doesn’t make me that happy because the cold and I? mortal enemies, BUT I get to wear cute boots, bright scarfs and my Burberry jacket, so fall wins some major points for that. 
I just discovered there’s another bunny. And although this is terrible for my waistline it’s incredibly exciting to know I will be eating mini-eggs at Christmas time. 
51 Days until Christmas
I signed up for a 10 day free trial at a gym.  My gym stuff is currently sitting on my desk.  I’m going to run like a guinea pig on a treadmill tonight. My blubber is going to fly. 
November 11th poppies. 
I have downgraded myself from ‘fat’ to ‘chubby’
One of my closest guy friends recently moved 4 minutes and 18 seconds away from my condo.  This is very exciting news even though it’s the direct result of i) not blogging as much, ii) staying up late, iii) consuming lots beer, iv) spending too much money, BUT it’s still on the happy list because he’s just that awesome to have close by. One more friend to convince to move down town - you know who you are wuberry, you. 
New eye candy at work who luckily sits near the big bowl of Halloween candy, which obvisiouly means I will not be making frequent visits. Oh.My.God what if he sees me stuffing my face… exactly. 
Facebook. Oh God, I know it’s a sad moment when one admits they greatly look forward to checking fb at the end of the day (it’s blocked for me at work), but it’s true! I greatly look forward to it on my walk home
Facebook Albums. In particular of trolls. 
BBM.  It’s my life. 
Feeling pretty. I feel pretty today - no massive bags under the eyes. Excellent. 
Oranges. I just can’t get enough. 
A date with a boy (next Thursday), something to look forward to. 
Got a raise at work! BOOO YEA! And I get my bonus next week, which is oh-so-very-exciting!
Avoiding H1N1 like the plague. haha get it? Because it’s like the plague (or at least the media reports that)
My troll outfit. Seriously, I still smile when I see photos of that night. 
Planning a fancy dinner party with my troll partner.  We’re hosting it Nov 14th; 3 course full meal for all our friends. Should be good, as neither of us cook. 
Lunch dates. Today? My sister and her bf.
Phone calls with best friends who live in Boston and love the Yankees. 
Morning coffee. 
Good days in the stock market. Holla! My portfolio is up 41%.

This was my internal dilemma all weekend: Me staring down at delicious treats over my intruding belly.
Straight up? I gained weight.  Hanging out with guys and skinny friends will do that to you. I don’t take anything back. I lived my life, I savoured the moments and am thinking of the weekend as a slight detour, but I’m back on track today and looking forward to shedding some lard this week.
Breakfast: Apple (1), Yogurts (2)
Lunch: Soup (3), Bread (2), Cheese (3)
Dinner: 
Left: 12/23
Also, excuse me while I pat myself on the back because there’s a huge bowl of candy in the office and I’ve eaten NOTHING from it today. Pretty impressive for me, I must admit. Ps I’m not sick. hehe

The only word I can think of that describes my entire weekend, and has left me sitting at my desk smiling ear to ear is EPIC. 
Halloween 2009 was epic. 
From the cupcake baking to shopping to wigs to candy to dancing on beds to photos to being scandalous trolls to flirting to twirling to tutus to bar hopping to mirror breaking to falling over to bold doctor inspections to ShamWOW to robot dancing to finding Waldo to sneaking a beer out of a bar under my tutu to finding Doc to drama to passing out it was perfect.  
I feel the need to let you all know your opinion of me may slightly drop a couple notches after I post some photos, because umm yea… let’s just say the word ‘classy’ wasn’t in my vocabulary this weekend.

Today is halloween. Today is the day that being a fatty? SUCKS.

Seriously, it does, like a lot.

Every year for Halloween I plan my costume around my lumps and curves, hoping to disguise the naked eye into thinking I’m not a fatty.  Every year I take note of all the slutty costumes out there (whom ps, not judging because let’s be honest… if I could rock a trampy Ronald McDonald look, I so would) and secretly wish my body looked like theirs.

And then every year, like clockworks I swear to myself I’ll be skinny the following year, be the person I want to be, wear the outfit I want to wear. Every year.

This year will be no different. Yes, I’m 45 pounds down from Halloween last year, but I still have lots of ‘dangerous curves ahead’ on my boday which scare the shit out of me and make me terrified to venture outside of my humble abode.

Tonight I am going as a troll.

It’s the most ‘revealing slash tight slash holy-shit-what-was-i-thinking-costume I’ve ever put together; think skin tight, nude colour body suit, umm yea… what.was.I.thinking?!?  I’m really nervous and am totally regretting the idea, but the stupid, hot-pink-omigod-it’s-so-awesome-wig has wood me in.

Eeegads.
