Mockingbird Lane

I was not as disappointed with Mockingbird Lane as I thought I would be. I actually liked it. I ignored that it was not just like the original and enjoyed watching it. I wish they would continue with it. They have the full episode on hulu. Watch it and tell me what you think. 

Love how they introduce Herman with this.

My favorite part is when spiders make Lily a dress.
Its gorgeous!

Best quotes of the show; 
Herman Munster "You ate a lion while naked" 
Grandpa "The lion was naked, it seemed polite."

Grandpa "Stop playing with your food"
Eddie "I will if you will"
Marilyn "Is that happening tonight?"

They were so sweet. 

I really hope NBC gets there heads out there butts and continue with this show.

Pumpkin Spice Cookie Icing

This is the best cookie icing I ever made. I took a recipe I had and tweaked it a bit. I wish I would have taken photos of the process, but with a little one you're not focused on taking photos as much as having fun and not making a huge mess. 

* 1/3 of pumpkin spice cream cheese tub
* 4 tablespoons stick butter, room temperature
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 2 cups powder sugar

In a mixer, use the paddle. Mix the cream cheese and butter till smooth. Add vanilla. Mix in the powder sugar one 1/2 cup at a time. This is crucial, if you don't it will be hard to mix and cluppy. Mix well until smooooooooooth. I let it mix for about 5-10 minutes. I also added some red and yellow food coloring, a drop at a time, to give it a more orange look. Let the cookies sit out for a bit to harden the frosting, so you can stack them. You can put them in the fridge to do this, but I don't care for cold cookies.

Oh nos! She bit me! Must be cause I am so tasty! 

Now I must get this jar to store all my cookies in.

Halloween Weekend

This weekend was pretty busy. Had to take the little one to get shots Friday. Before we left for the Dr. office, she ran back in the house screaming, "I need my zombie!". (Kris got her a zombie doll from "the claw" at walmart.) When we got there she was totally brave, even after seeing other kids cry. She kept asking for them to call her name, it was so cute. Everything was good, till they did the TB test. She freaked, I don't blame her, I hate that shot. 

Here she is with her zombie.

After we got home, I started getting ready for the Halloween show Kris band was playing. 
We dressed as Joker and Harley Quinn escaped from Arkham Asylum

Creepy Smile! 

The next day we went to my brother Josh's house, in Ventura, for his mom's birthday. (fyi he is not my blood brother) Ate some good burgers, and german chocolate cake, it was so nommy that I could not finish it. Then the boys had another show, we got our makeup done by Kristi. I was lazy and was not feeling well to do my own makeup. Next time I will try it myself, I really wanna do my whole face.

Of course the pic he took of himself is black and white. I don't know why he does that.

Yesterday we were going to go to the Creepy Cruise, but I just really wanted to stay home. So the little one and I made cookies. Oh my the frosting I made was delish! I will post the recipe later.

Little one excited about making cookies and her favorite apron.

Halloween is coming!

Halloween is almost here! Its my favorite holiday. I get to dress up, dress up my little one, and they are finally selling house decor I like. This halloween is going to be busy, just like the last, and the one before that, and the one before that.  Did I mention I love halloween? 
My fiance and brother's band (Shades of Grey) is going to be playing two shows this weekend. The one friday night we are all going as Batman characters. I originally wanted to be Batgirl, Oracle or Poison Ivy, but the man wanted to be Joker so I am going as Harley Quinn. We are not going as the originals or the movie versions, we usually put a twist on our characters for halloween. So we are going as the escaped mental patient versions of Joker and Harley. I did quite a bit to get this costume all together. I should post photos of everything...... 

(10 minutes later) 

My inflatable hammer, I painted pow on the side to give it a comic book type look. 
I bought the hammer on buy.com, I believe its an inflatable clown hammer.

These are my boots and fishnets. I painted one boot red, which was a PITA, then painted on the diamonds to both of them. The fishnets were also a pain, they would not take dye, so I had to paint them also. I used fabric paint on all. I am just hoping they do not itch all night.I do love how the boots came out, and might wear them with my Harley shirt for fun.

 This is the Straitjacket "dress". Its a top and skirt, stupid ebay.  It was 10x way to big for me, I am not a skinny girl, but I am not a 3x. I had to size it way down. There was a hole in the middle o show your cleavage  which I liked in the photos, just not when I get it on. So I sewed up the front, you can't really tell with the belt thing in the way. I also painted Arkham Asylum on the back, just so everyone knows were I escaped from. 

This is a tank that I made out of two tanks the checker pattern is also on the back. 
I might wear this under the jacket, I am still unsure.

 Here is my lovely blond goldish wig I got off ebay from Hong Kong. Its a pigtail wig, with clip on extrax hair. Its for an anime character Elizabeth from Black Butler, I am not familiar with this anime, but love her hair. Also made the mask out of a one dollar mask I got on buy.com, I just cut the outside frame of it off and then cut the eye holes in a sort of cat eye feminine look, I did not want to look like Zoro lol.

 I will have photos of me all done up, along with everyone else.
More about my other costume in the next post. 

I fail!

I know I said I would post more, everyday if I remember. Well I fail, hardcore! I went on vacation to see my mom and sister, and to show my fiance around my home town. Then school started and I got super busy.
I really want to answer all the questions now just to make up for it, but what I am gonna do, again is try and finish my 30 days of blogging .... well 28 days (^_^) . I am really hoping to do it this time!
