weekend update

Friends, I have discovered a new calling...

...impersonating Paula Deen. This weekend, I was Paula Deen for a friend's Halloween Party and it was seriously SO FUN. I stayed in character almost the entire night. (So much so, in fact, that someone I saw the next day commented that it was weird hearing what my normal voice sounded like after I talked like Paula all of the night before.

Anywho, you'd have never known I'm a bit of a wallflower at parties by how I acted on Friday night, but being Paula was so FUN! I totally had the guts to go up and talk to people I'd never spoken to before (as Paula of course). It was like slapping on a platinum/white wig and apron and carrying around sticks of butter made me a different person.

Here are a few photos from the party. These are the ones from my cell phone. The really good ones will probably appear in Friday's post. So, you'll just have to come back to see those. HEH.

After all of the build-up for the Friday party, the rest of the weekend seemed like a bit of a let down. But, it did include a trip to Chili's (one of my fave restaurants) for dinner on Sunday to celebrate a friend's half birthday.

Yep, we celebrate half birthdays. Because that's just how we roll.

Oh, and I went to a haunted campground on Saturday night. It was pretty cool...albeit not that scary. Maybe I'm just jaded or maybe I realized these people aren't real and thus not scary? I just know that I wasn't really all that scared. I mean, sure, when an evil clown jumped out from the bushes or whatever, I screamed, but that was pretty much it.

Am I aging out of scary things? I sure hope not. I love scary things like that. Maybe I'll just have to stick to scary movies from now on.

Do you go to any spooky haunted houses for Halloween or is that mostly what teenagers do? I'm so out of touch. HAHA.

Linking up with Sami & Dana for the Weekend Update & Meg for Mingle Monday.
