Halloween Parade

I just got home from the Halloween Parade at school. The energy and excitement was palpable. I don't know how the teachers will get anything accomplished today. I think the neighboring school district had the right idea, by just cancelling school today. The kids are so excited. Halloween has gotten out of control, I think. It's not just the simple fun days of trick or treat like when I was a kid. There's parties and events that go on for weeks!
Sprout dressed as a hobo, Panda a mexican dancer and Lulu went as Sacagawea- even carrying Jean-Baptiste on her back!
Tonight we head up to Plain City to see Mark's sister and her children and go trick-or-treating with them. Our neighborhood is not well-lit, and last year there were few houses participating. So, the kids requested we go to a different neighborhood this year. We'll see how that goes!

Jason Mraz is my new boyfriend


Mark and I went to the Jason Mraz concert on Tuesday. It was the best concert I have EVER been to. Granted, I have not been to many, but for me it was heavenly. Jason is a fabulous performer. The concert was interactive. He really shared with the audience, he sings with real emotion and you can feel it. You feel connected to him. Okay, maybe not everyone does, but I did.
Now I am in love with him. He is mine. Mine. Mine. If I had stalker tendencies, he would be in real trouble. Or if I weren't married, or way older than him. And he is so healthy, and I'm a chemical imbiber. I like my preservatives and convenience foods. A girl can dream. (If I were younger, thinner, a health nut, had friends in the music industry so I could MEET him, etc.. Or maybe if he were older, fatter, unhealthy and lived in Utah).
A dream is a wish your heart makes....
