Halloween is finally here! I have been waiting for this "holiday" since my birthday, which was back in July. Not because of the candy. I am very picky when it comes to candy. It either has to be milk chocolate or chew candies. I usually don't venture out because I've been burnt, literally, by candy. LOL It isn't obviously about the candy. It is about the creative minds of children. They have this idea of what they want to be and the parents have to execute it. I like the ones that will endure the face painting and elaborate costumes. They put it off so well. Nowadays, you see 10 year old wearing sexy kitten costumes... Um no! Not proper!

Not a lot of kids come out to my neighborhood anymore. They all go w/ their friends and family to the local churches. *sighs* I miss them coming around. I bet we'll only have give or take 20 kids come out. That's good because we only made 20 treat bags... Speaking of which.

Mi mami & I put together little treat bags for the lil goblins. (Note to self: Take pics of treat bags) They are so cute. They have a singular black cat w/ a witch's hate. My mom asked me why I am doing this and I told her "So the little kids can have Christmas on Halloween". Yet another holiday I am so looking forward to.

I have been so creatively inspired these last few months that it is kind of scaring me. LOL The more I do creatively, the more I feel better about the person I am becoming.

My Triumph...

I enjoy going to Target & Kohl's to find shirts for myself. They seem to be the only stores where I can get quality shorts, guaranteed to have my size and at a moderate price. Old Navy is a close 2nd to the aforementioned. I am not going to sugar coat it. I am fat. According to my physician I am obese. My problem is not with food consumption but keeping my body active. I was instructed to do something physical every day for at least 20 minutes. I confess, I do NOT like to work out. I used to but I've gotten so lazy. Now I am paying for it. I am now 28 years old and I have decided that I will treat my body the way it should be treated.

Not only will I continue with my organic body treatment outside but also within. I want to look 20 something when I am late 30 something. I have to start loving me more than I love procrastinating. That is going to be challenge because procrastinating and I have had a long term love affair.

Oh I digress. My triumph is that I can now shop in the ladies section. I mean I understand I am still a bit too big for a lot of the clothing in the ladies section but I do not have to JUST shop in the plus size section. That might sound a bit odd to some people but I have come a long way. I hope to fit into a moderate size by New Year's Eve. I am actually excited.
