Not me Friday

I do not love the smell of pumpkins when they are carved! That smell reminds me of Halloween more than anything else and brings back childhood memories!

I did not eat breakfast type food for the last 4 out of 5 nights this week. (And no ironically it was not all cereal!)

I did not process 29 transcripts today for the same person. It cost the student $116.00 and sadly there was only one whole class on their record! (And it was like an Acting I class...) And I couldn't help wonder what in the world she is going to do with 29 copies of her transcript.

I did not forget to go to the bathroom today because I was so busy at work...and for me that is pretty hard to do!

This week Kyle and I did not go to the store and buy all frozen food items. So sad, but true.

I did not get a whole lot of wierd looks today because I wore my Halloween costume. Seriously people, who wouldn't want to dress up?!

Not Me Wednesday/Thursday

I am not planning Christmas decorations for the office (including putting up a tree!)

I did not cause a breaker to shut off when I turned on the computer, iron and space heater in our office. I think that it is all the space heater's fault...

I am not hoping and praying that the snow melts here in Cedar for Halloween...those poor trick or treaters having to wear their coats with their costumes...I remember having to do that as a kid and I HATED it. That and all my Halloween decorations are covered in snow. :(

I am not probably going to FRANCE next summer for a study abroad. My boss approved my time off, I was so surprised! And so I have not already though about what to pack...hehe...for those that know I plan what I am going to take way too far in advance...and I've done that my whole life, for girls camp, EFY, etc...

I am not excited for my new phone in my is awesome! But I not having a hard time finding a ring that I like and that won't drive me crazy hearing it all day!

I am not wanting to bring in a movie to our conference room that just got mediated. It is seriously awesome. The guy that was installing everything yesterday had Harry Potter in as a trial run. I did not want to go back to work! :)

I am not already looking forward to the weekend after next. Is that a bad thing? Probably.

Not me Tuesday

This idea I stole from Lissa...which is the part of her blog that I love the most because it makes me laugh and you really see her personality coming out! So I thought that I would start this tradition as well.

  • I have not been singing Christmas carols all week. You would think that since I am such a Halloween nut I would stick with the current holiday.
  • I did not just seriously contemplate keeping the huge box that our new work shredder came in so that I could take it home and make a fort.
  • I am not afraid to talk to my boss about doing a study abroad next summer.
  • I have not had to fix my halloween decorations like 4 times because of the wind...grr...stupid wind! Thank goodness I am handy with a glue gun!

I will leave it at that for the is harder to come up with these that I thought it would be!

Halloween decorations!

It is so fun to decorate a house! Here is a few pictures of the halloween decorations that have gone up! Please feel free to come trick or treating at the Cottam household...I promise that we will have good candy given to children of all ages! I will try and take some better ones and repost them!

These are the cute spirit jugs that line our entryway!

This is one of the tombstones...they look a whole lot cooler in real life because the little light just outlines they look spooky!

The halloween quilt that I made this season! (Thanks again Amy for getting the fabric for me!) I think it turned out really cute!

Five years today!

Today is officially our five year anniversary! And what a wonderful 5 years it has been! I cannot believe how the time has flown by, but then again cannot imagine my life any differently. Kyle brought in some beautiful flowers into my office and we had a great dinner at Rusty's. Love you my honey! You are the best!
