Hoodlums and Pirates

I am very blessed to have such a unique group of friends
one such person who always brings out the child in me
is my wonderfully adorable friend Ashlee
We don't get together half as often as I would like
but when we do
we have the greatest adventures.
Such as the Valentine's Tea Party where we visited the land of the dolls
do you remember that?
Ashlee and I met in Color Theory class... Ashlee is the most amazing artist!!!

It's quite funny to think that when I first met
Ashlee was going through a bit of a ruff yet ruffly faze
and to this day my family calls her the pirate girl

So I guess it was simply in the cards
that she should stay with us during the pirate festival weekend here in P town

I hadn't planned on going... being the home-body that I am
so I was quite pleased with the pirate gear I found lying around the house.

It was a perk that hubby had a pirate hat from his college days

Dressing up is so much fun!
And many of you have inquired about my halloween plans
and I am very very sorry to report that I won't be celebrating this year
Perhaps things shall change
but as things stand
I have no pumpkins, no candy, no costume
It's all really rather sad
but it's been such a HARD month so far and I just feel like laying low
at any rate last year the only trick or treaters we got where "big" kids with bandanas
claiming to be hoodlums
well i'm quite tired of hoodlums myself!
We've had quite enough for one month thank you very much!!!!!

We are all for supporting our local pirates...mostly my sister-in-law and brother who have developed a Pirate Energy drink called Root Jack.
www.rootjack.com They just did a renaissance festival in Frankenmuth, MI. Great pirate gear BTW. If you're gonna be a pirate, pearls are the best accessory!
