The most exciting thing Stella and I have done lately is get me tattooed:

We do have a very fun weekend coming up though, since my birthday is Friday!

I failed in my LV photography duties on this one, but I tried... my mother-in-law hired a bagpiper to play at the house for her dad's birthday this past weekend:



Also on the blog but no extra pictures:

Hahaha I love the photo of Anana on all the wine bottles!

And Duke's campus is so pretty, PerfectlyBohemian! I have a coworker who went to and worked at UNC so he's pretty snarky about Duke, but even he admits that it looks gorgeous there!

Last night, Stella and I went to the ZOO! After hours! They were having a fundraiser Pokemon Catch-a-thon, since they have so many Pokestops. We didn't expect to see any animals, since the zoo said all the exhibits would be closed, but some of them were out and about anyway!



More photos on Stella's blog, including her with me as Nurse Joy!

One quick little photo while we were on the Norfolk campus this morning for a meeting: mermaid sighting!

Stella and I just ate this weekend, apparently. It was rainy, so we couldn't do much outside anyway. We went to local favorite, Duck Donuts, and made poke!


Watching them make the fresh donuts at Duck.


Making poke at home while listening to the rain through the screen door.

Today, we did something I think Stella has been looking forward to since she got here... the beach!!!



It was gorgeous and sunny and we saw dolphins and did some reading and hung out with my friend Cassy!

Stella and I went to Mt. Trashmore, the highest point in Virginia Beach!



This is from the top... it's not very high.

28  Re: Mini 13 Days of Halloween Rnd 8 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Alexampersandra on: July 08, 2016 06:31:04 PM
I have received! And I think Gimli (the kitty) was just as excited as I was...


Gimli is particularly interested in that little turquoise one. I have freedom because nothing is numbered and there's more than 13 individual items! Oh the possibilities! Also, the handsome gentleman in the middle (the hatted bird, not Gimli) was not wrapped so he is like an up-front bonus! Oh and there's one other package that I realized wasn't in the picture, but by then I had put everything back in the box and hid it in the laundry closet because of Gimli's interest in all the things. I can't wait to open things!!!

October 1
My cat always tells me what to do so I opened the turquoise package he was so interested in first. And then it made sense, because it was 3 little candy corn catnip mousies!

There's also a short video of him playing with it here: http://alexampersandra.blogspot.com/2016/10/gimli-and-his-candy-corn-mousie.html
And since I have a few spare items to open over the next 13 days, I decided to open two small ones today, and I found this bracelet:

So pretty, and in my favorite colors! I already have my work outfit for Monday picked out to go with it  Grin

October 2
Lights! I can't decide where to put my little bats!


October 3
Such pretty cross-stitching!


October 4
Mason jar! (And the Goober, aka Gimli.)

And some close-ups:



October 5
Magnets!!! I love magnets! Gimli thinks the spider is tasty (I got it away from him before he could do any damage).



October 6
I'm out of town for a conference so I had to open something early... Gimli seemed to like these fluffy Halloween-y socks, and so do I!


October 7
Gimli did not participate but I unwrapped this great skull candle!


October 8
Mug cake! It comes with a little mix to make an orange vanilla (YUM) cake!


October 9
I'm pretty sure the past three (fuzzy socks, candle, and mug cake) were meant to be opened on these days, in preparation for the hurricane! So much of Virginia Beach that never floods is totally blocked, overpasses in Norfolk are completely full of water... it's a little insane. Obviously nothing like what people in Florida, South Carolina, Haiti, etc. are dealing with, but still worse than we expected.

Anyway, on to today's unwrappings!

No Gimli in this photo because I think he heard thunder and went into hiding.
I love Tootsie Roll Pops!!! And look, you can see that one of the new lemon-flavored ones is in there! Yum! I love the little coffin box painted with ooze... and the sparkly little spider pins were inside. I love them!!!

October 10
A banner! (It spells out "BOO" in candy corn pennants!) Work was closed today because of residual flooding and power outages but I plan to put this high up in my doorway at work tomorrow!


October 11
I love this!!!!! It's from Walking Dead, for those of you who aren't familiar (and I like to read it "Don't dead, open inside" for giggles). And it's SO SPARKLY!  Cheesy


October 12
Pendants! They're two-sided so there's two photos:


I think the owl might be my favorite but it's so hard to choose!

October 13
Last one! It's an AMPERSAND! With spiderwebby print on front and back and black/orange SPARKLES on the edge! I love it!!!


Thank you for everything cadet, I love it all!!!  Grin I feel so ready for Halloween now!

Anyone else playing Pokemon Go? Stella helped me catch an Eevee (my favorite Pokemon!) in my office!

Stella and I took it easy this weekend, doing a lot of home organizing and cleaning that didn't seem interesting enough to photograph. We did get rain, sushi, and fireworks though!


(You can kind of see her in this photo... I took several, but it was just too dark.)
