Thanksgiving cookies!!

So for some reason I've decided to start making cookies for all occasions. But they must be cookies made from cookie cutters so I can have fun decorating them. I made some for the first time today and they turned out pretty good. I'd like to get better at the decorating part, but maybe I just need practice. I couldn't find Thanksgiving themed cookie cutters for the life of me, so I had to make cutout myself and just traced around them with a knife. I made a turkey, a maple leaf, a pilgrim hat, an acorn, and a pumpkin. They were a lot of work and W doesn't even like sugar cookies!! lol Well here they are.

Nashville Zoo

Me and W went to the Nashville Zoo on Saturday to meet up with our friends the Hughes for a fun day of animal watching and picture taking. We got a semi-behind-the-scenes tour as well since one of our friends knew the aquarium keeper. I got some good pics and it was a beautiful day, but just a tad chilly. We ate lunch at the zoofari cafe and it was surprisingly yummy for zoo food. The highlight of the day for me was the lorikeet exhibit where you can interact with the lories and feed them nectar. Enjoy the photos!

Stephanie and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.

Ugh. Woke up to a grumpy husband trying to fix our kitchen sink that has been clogged with pumpkin seeds. Blah. So all I hear is him taking deep angry sighs and cursing every so often until he decides to call a plumber. He's also mad because I didn't change the cat litter boxes yesterday or do any house cleaning. So I get to school pretty early to begin my last minute cramming for a kinetics exam I have today which I virtually did NO studying for. Why you ask would I not study for an exam? I don't know. This happens every semester. I go through periods of burn out where I literally CAN'T make myself study. I was doing SO WELL too, I mean all As and Bs. I'll be glad if I got 5 answers right on this exam, and it's all my fault. *sigh* I did make it to the gym to relieve some frustration, but when I came out I had gotten a ticket. I was pretty mad about it since I've parked there for over a year and never knew I couldn't. It's only 10 dollars, but still. I've also been really irritable and wanting to eat everything I lay eyes on. PMS at it's best. BLah. I am attempting to do some last minute cleaning and do the cat litter boxes before W gets home at 11:30.

Halloween 2008

I had a good Halloween this year. Me and W carved pumpkins and they turned out super cute. I carved a kitty cat face and a ghost and W's was just a face he made up, but it was really cute. I had to work on Halloween, but got off around 9:00 pm and ran home to change into my costume and grab a bite to eat. I was a witch. I LOVE to dress up for Halloween :) My costume was a little shorter then I anticipated ( I ordered it online) But it was super cute so I just wore some shorts under it. I then spent a few hours at the Kappa Psi/PDC halloween party. W had to work and didn't get off until 11pm and was too tired to go out, so I just went and met up with some friends. We had a blast. I got home around 1am and had to be to work the next morning at 9:30am, but I got up with no problems thank goodness. I made some delicious pumpkin muffins today and we had meatloaf, sauteed veggies, and mashed potatoes for dinner tonight. Here are some pics.
