Happy Halloween! Greek Goddess of Social Media

By · October 31, 2009 · Filed in How to Have Fun In Business · 2 Comments »

Ok, I do NOT claim to be the Greek Goddess of Social Media. That just happens to be my Halloween costume for this year. :) I decided to go all out this year and dress up by the urgings of some of my Twitter buds. I decided this was mostly going to be a picture post of some of my favorite Halloween pics that I found across the web and my own digital camera.

P1010704Here is a picture of me anticipating tonight’s fun adventure with my kiddos. I was really happy with this costume eventhough it was my 2nd choice. My 1st choice was sold out and it was just as beautiful.

It is costumes such as these that will make me want to dress up every year now. My daughter was actually trying to convince me to buy a different slinky, sexy black spider queen costume.

In my mind, I thought “I’m not trying to attract any vampires on Halloween!” but I gently told her that mommy has to put that one back. :)

Now on to my kiddos. The Michael Jackson costume is really big this year as my son has 2 of his best friends that will wear his costume tonight. My son P1010691 decided to be Michael Jackson’s Thriller werewolf. We need to find our Michael Jackson co-hort so they can walk around together tonight.

My daughter decided to be a cheerleader for the 2nd year in a row. Last year she was a USC cheerleader and this year she is a Barbie Cheerleader.

She is mesmerized by cheerleaders so I think I may have one on my hands although her mommy went the tomboy route and swore off all things girly at a very young age.

I can imagine her running off the basketball court to cheer on the side lines instead of making a basket but I digress…

rss-pumpkinHere are some fun Social Media Halloween pumpkins carvings that I found via Mashable. I thought they were all so unique and well done  but man, how do they do those so well?

Our pumpkin carvings turn out so horrible every year. As a matter of fact, I have some mold to clean out of them. YUCK!

Gotta love the RSS pumpkin! By the way, be sure to subscribe to my blog while you are reading this. :) wordpress-pumpkin

Who could it be other than the Twitter’s Fail Whale Pumpkin? Oh no! What shall we do? Twitter is down..Time to flock to Facebook.

I could find a Facebook pumpkin for you but I’m hungry and I need to eat and get ready for our night time activities. It will be interesting trying to keep my 4 year old from crying at all of the scary monsters! Let us know about your adventures tonight in the comments below or link to some other fun pictures. Have a safe and fun Halloween!

How to Have Fun in Business

By · July 31, 2009 · Filed in How to Have Fun In Business · No Comments »

“How To” Articles are very popular these days. I thought I would add how to have fun and still stay engaged with your business. We haven’t written a post here in 3 weeks! Wow, now that is a record for us! We’ve been having too much fun with summer family mini trips around Southern California. I thought I would have some fun and post our travels and pictures over the past few weeks.

The fun started with the Barnum & Bailey Circus at the Staple Center. That was an incredible show! I wasn’t expecting much but we sure were entertained. It’s amazing how they can get the elephants and tigers and bears – Oh my! – to obey their commands!

The next stop was at a water park Six Flags Hurricane Harbor. The weather has been between 106 and 108 degrees in our neighborhood so this was a welcomed trip. We met up with great friends and had a blast.

The next stop was another place to stay cool, the movies. There weren’t too many movie options for the kids. We weren’t too excited to see Ice Age 3 as we aren’t big fans of Ice Age but we were pleasantly surprised and enjoyed the movie.

The fun didn’t stop there as we went bowling the next day for a family birthday party. We love to bowl and as a family growing up we were on bowling leagues. My biggest trophies as a child were from bowling. It was really neat to see my 7 year old son have a great natural bowling style. It runs in the blood!

The next stop was the best place on earth…. Disneyland!! It was my 4 year old daughter’s first time there. She had to go to Princess land or mommy and daddy would end up in big trouble. It was so fun and the neat thing about it was that I was able to share my day with my Facebook friends the whole day from my Blackberry. It was neat to pass the time in line by adding Facebook status updates.  The fireworks were incredible and we can’t wait to go back because there were 5 areas of the park that we didn’t get a chance to go to yet.

Here are some funnies from the pictures above…Why does my husband love that “I gotcha” pose??? As you can tell, my daughter LOVES that outfit and wants to wear it all the time. I need to get her into modeling so she can pay for the water bill due to constantly washing the same outfit over and over again! LOL

Our motto is work hard and play hard! Take some time to focus on your family and create fun memories..Have fun!
