ABOUT ME

About me: I'm a 40-something mother to a pickle party of a family. My husband Chuck, our tween Junior, our 6-year-old Everett, our toddler Cam, and I live in a town in Connecticut I affectionately call Mulletville Lite (aka my childhood hometown). My friends call me Nutjob, and they're right. In my husband's spare time he dresses up as a Viking and chases ghosts (and I'm the nutjob?). I'm a freelance graphic designer and writer.

I'm totally stalling

I must have been smoking crack when I bought this Laura Geller eyeshadow on QVC



I have no other explanation as to why I, a strictly brown girl, would purchase purple and gold sparkly eyeshadow. It screams ice skater. But dammit, I was willing to try it because Chuck and I are going to a fancy dinner dance tonight. So I slapped some on. I love the just-fell-down-the-stairs look, don't you?



Then I went to try on the sheer nylons I'd bought. Holy giraffe stockings! Did I accidentally shop at the Big and Tall?



So things are going great. It's 4:30. We have to leave in an hour. And I'm blogging.

Chuck, honey, I think we're going to be a little late...

They have fancy dinner dances in Mulletville?

I just went to a makeup party last night. I was a little inebriated and may have missed a few instructions on the 'smoky eye', but I think you may be doing it wrong.

Seems to me you would rather be blogging than partying...

Kathy said...

Are you planning to go to a stripper bar or something? OMG. Those pantyhose. Enough for two!

Lindy said...

As far as the eyeshadow goes - "you should see the other guy."

You might not have started that fight, but did you finish it? :)

Small Town Mommy said...

The eyeshadow is fabulous! You are going to look awesome. I hope you have an amazing time. I have to agree with Keely, they have fancy dinner dances in Mulletville?

Jen said...

I got nothing. Everyone already said what I would have said. Have a good time at the buffet.

We know you're really just dressing up for us.

I think you're supposed to put that on you eyelid. Good stuff for halloween though!

Love the hose, how tall are you?

Lori said...

Is "Fancy Dinner Dance" Mullet-speak for knocking over the local liquor store?

I can see it now "Ice Skating Duo With Abnormally Long Face Stockings Take Smash and Grab at the 7 Eleven"...

Mad Woman said...

Every make up person I come into contact with tries to tell me that purple and blue eyeshadows are the PERFECT colour for me. I usually tell them to shove it.

Have fun partying!

Doris Sturm said...

you silly girl, the eyeshadow goes on top of the eyelid, not under your eyes...where in the world did you find that pantyhose? They must've been thinking of a giraffe when they made that one, not a woman.
Hope you had fun anyway!

Little Ms Blogger said...

I'm curious, where do you go in Mulletville for a fancy dinner dance? Another state?

Mrsbear said...

I would have absolutely zero idea how to apply that stuff. Although I've seen people make the gold work. Not me...

Hope you enjoyed the fancy dinner anyway.

Sheila Sultani said...

So you got Chuck doing make-up and hose detail now?

Ms. Salti said...

I'll give you a makeup lesson if you like... that's a gorgeous color... but you do have to be careful because you WILL look like you've been beaten if not properly applied! Hope you guys had a fun night out, stockings and all!

Are you sure Chuck didn't punch you in the eye?
