The Tenth Incarnation of the Doctor

Even though Dalan and I are probably the only 2 people I know that actually watch Dr. Who, Dalan really wants to be the Tenth incarnation of The Doctor for Halloween.

I'm a really big fan of David Tennant, and especially his hot suit. The problem is, where do you find a suit like this?

While you would think a brown pin-stripe suit would suffice, not for my stubborn husband. His suit has to have the royal blue stripes, no exceptions!

We found this suit that is actually named the Tennant Suit. $525 is a little steep for my pockets (Dalan is actually trying to justify it though).

Also in my search I found this blog dedicated to David Tennant's suit. The author actually has 5 other blogs about different incarnations of The Doctor and another blog about David Tennant's Coat.

Oh wait, did I forget to mention the coat? This thing is a beauty

Oh, and that thing in his hand is a sonic screwdriver, long story. Don't worry I've got it covered.

Anyway, back to the blogs, this guy features dopplegangers, fabrics, and fanatics. The author and his wife dress up and have photoshoots as The Doctor and Rose Tyler. He has actually documented every tie from every episode and where to get it. I really envy the amount of time some people have, and their ability to make money off of things like this :)

So far it doesn't seem that a month is going to be long enough to meet all of the Husband's costume demands. Hopefully my mad search engine skills can accomplish more

On the bright side, I did find some glasses..... I guess we'll keep looking.

If you happen to come across a brown and blue pin-stripe 3 piece suit, let me know.

Cute or Creepy

Fun fact about Ashley. I collect nativities. A coworker brought this to my attention today, and I really really want it!

Those are Fisher Price Little People, so cute! My husband, however, has labeled this 'creepy' and 'wrong'. Is he right, or just a fun-sucker?

Bio Bay

So we are leaving for Puerto Rico in just 60 days! It to FOREVER to get here. Especially since I started looking for plane tickets back in January. There are a lot of things I'm excited for, our cruise has so many different excursions, but I just can't pick! The thing I think I'm the most stoked for right now though is kayaking through the Bioluminescent Bay in Fajardo. The water seriously glows in the dark!

Its filled with billions of tiny micro-organisms that glow like fireflies when the water is disturbed.

In other news my brother comes home in 29 days! Wow, the last few weeks have flown by. I'm sorry if I'm a little giddy the next time you see me. I know its completely out of character, but I have some awesome stuff coming up!

Halloween costume inspiration:

Now I just have to get Dalan a Waldo costume and Scout a Woof costume and we are set for Halloween!

It may sound like an overstatement, but I am absolutely in love with this machine.

I'm just on day 1 with it, but I ran for 65 minutes straight and I feel awesome. Going about 15 minutes on a treadmill makes me pray for a serious injury so I can go to the hospital instead of run.

This is the embarrassing post where I put some actuals (gasp) out there so I'm accountable for some results. I weighed myself about 3 weeks ago and came in @ 128. I started a eat healthier/work out program 1 week ago. I now weigh 126. My goal is to be somewhere between 115 and 120 in 2 months. I also want to be more muscular through the leg, buttock, and tummy areas.

So, this is how I'm going to do it:

1. Work out @ least 5 days a week. The Fieldhouse is about 10 feet from my office, so going right after work isn't a problem. I've got the Netflix app on my iPod now so I can watch shows while I'm working out. (The music thing just doesn't do it for me).

2. Eat healthier. I'm not going to call this 'diet' or say that I'm cutting anything out completely. I just end up frustrated and binging when I try too hard. I'm planning a weekly menu every Saturday (hopefully based around our Bountiful Basket). I'm not counting calories, but just trying to limit how many times we eat out (this makes our bank accounts happy too).

3. Drink lots of water. This is sooooo hard for me. Water tastes metallic and I have a hard time swallowing it. I've got my pink lemonade mix-ins and I'm going to increase this intake gradually. Right now I'm at about 40oz without trying. I'm going to try and be to 64oz in 2 weeks. The more water I drink, the less room I have for diet coke.

4. Pack healthy snacks. I usually just eat food because its there. Leaving a cluster of grapes or a handful of bran crackers on my desk keeps my mind away from all of the yummy peanut butter m&ms that are just a few steps away.

Well, there you have it. Probably more information than you ever needed to know about me, but I really want some results this time!

1 Year Old

My baby just turned 1. I vow to never ever ever breed a dog ever again. Delivering the puppies was absolutely traumatic. Our original plan was to sell all of them, but we had to fight so hard to keep Scout alive I couldn't bring myself to sell her.
She has the sweetest face ever, even when she is covered in paint and spackle.

I even love her crooked ears.

This is a video from when she was a puppy, probably the cutest puppy ever.

Even though she is itchy and not very smart we still love her lots!

Squishy & Stealy

So I stole this from Lacy.

Because I liked it.

Too much time

With Husband back in school, I need to find worthwhile things to occupy my time.
Like this:


Anyone who can think of a game where you launch birds into pig fortresses is an absolute genius.
Now that I've beat Angry Birds, its time to move on. To this:

I think its time well spent.
