October recap

If there’s anything that could break my recent funk, it was the month of October. October is full of fun events for me: my anniversary, hubby’s birthday, my birthday, and Halloween. It’s pretty awesome. So other than the whole pool incident, October rocked. Let me highlight a few of my favorite things from my favorite month of the year.

Hubby’s Birthday
My hubby turned the big 4 0 this year and I couldn’t let that go by without proper celebration. Two of his friends were my accomplices in helping me plan, spread the word, and then getting him to the party. I booked the upstairs room at Tapwerks in Bricktown, which turned out to be pretty awesome, but I’ll get to that in a minute. A week or so before the party date, my hubby knew something was up and he LIED TO ME and said he had to go to Lawton for work on the night I was planning the party. I called his boss the next day and asked if he could please help me. Boss man went to hubby and asked him why he was going to Lawton and my hubby said, “Who told you I was going to Lawton? You’ve been talking to my wife! I told her I was going to Lawton so she wouldn’t plan anything for my birthday.” So the jig was up but he still didn’t know exactly when or where the party was going to be.

The morning of the party he was still telling me he was going to Lawton that night. I said, “Ok. I’m going to go eat dinner with my girlfriends so Aunt Judy is going to babysit.” Then my accomplice Scott called him up and said his wife was mad at him and he wanted to go out for beers that night, and Brent agreed to go. Of course, we all ended up at the same place. Here are a few pictures:
The birthday boy!

Good times! Of course, when we got home, he told me that as soon as they got there, he saw my vehicle in the parking lot and knew it was the party. But oh well – we will had fun and that’s all the matters. The rest of the pictures are HERE if you want to see them.

The boy told me he wanted to be Darth Vader for Halloween so I immediately started thinking about dressing the girl up in something that would coordinate (because I only have so many years where I can influence what she wears). When I started looking at Star Wars costumes online, I immediately found the perfect one. Yoda. Take a look:

And after

Again, the rest of the pictures are HERE if you want to see all of them.

That’s all for now. I want so much to talk about the election, but that will have to be a post for another day. :-)

Missy, Glad you got to pull one over on him--almost. I was born in Lawton--at the Army post there. I looked at all the party pictures--looks like you threw the perfect party for 40! I laughed about you and your BFF being wasted. And loved the Halloween pictures too. Happy birthdy to you as well (I noticed you didn't have any pictures of THAT)! Glad October's fun far outweighed the troubled moments.
