Scary Good TImes....

I'm SOOOOOO excited to announce that Sis FINALLY dressed up with me for last weekends Halloween parties! It wasn't easy to talk her into it but once I did, she was in FULL character. Dare I say I think she had fun?! I DARE.

To know me is to know I LOVE LOVE LOVE Molly Shannon! She is one of my all time funny ladies!

Not to be creepy but if we ever met, I'm sure we would be Best Friends Forever.

In my opinion she is one of the best Saturday Night Live (from now on known as SNL) Actors/Actresses. She was on the show when the show was HI-LARRY-OUS!

ANYWHOOOOOO... Molly along with an another AH-MAZE-ING comedic actress Ana Gasteyer had a SNL skit called "The Delicious Dish"

Here is a little description that really doesn't do the skit justice but you get the idea!

An Ana Gasteyer and Molly Shannon sketch. Debuted November 16, 1996. Margaret Jo McCullen (Gasteyer) and Teri Rialto (Shannon) host a fictitious show on NPR called "The Delicious Dish" on which they discuss cooking and culinary issues. They both speak in extremely bland monotone voices and imply that their greatest joys in life are derived from absurdly simple things such as purchasing a new funnel. (full link here)


Obviously the top is the "real" Margret Jo McCullen and Teri Rialto. I think we did pretty much "nail it" Pretty close huh?

Sis and I even tried the skit "live".

The "real" Dish....

The U Sister's "Dish"

I told you Sis was in FULL character! This was take 20 for Sis and I. Even Jenny B the camera operator couldn't stop laughing! 

Now onto the "scary" part. We all know Coco LOVES HALLOWEEN! So when Toni Mursday of Mursday Designs recently told me that my house looks like "fall threw up in it". It might have been the nicest thing she has ever said to me. FYI: The U sisters and Mursdays are about to have a HUGE Christmas decorating contest! Maybe if Toni asks nicely, the Mursdays can guest blog their (less impressive) decorating experience! :)

Now onto the "scary". The photos to follow are all Sissy's! She did a great first time of taking pictures! Well, once she took off the lens cap, they all came out GREAT! Love ya sissy! 

Last year, I painted some milk glass orange and black! I picked up the black cats from who knows where! :) 

BOO! Scary huh! The "boo" ghost is supposed to be outdoors. You know Coco loves to use lawn ornaments for inside decor!  

I'm kinda proud of the the "eye" balls. I thought it would be soooo easy to glue googly eyes on Styrofoam balls. Not the case but they are cute!

Sis added a spider to one of the mirrors! Its a cute, non-scary one! 

I like to call this our "happy pumpkin" table!

This might be my favorite! Sis IS getting better at Halloween! She did all this (except the mustache, I was being "hipster" that day. HA) 

Another sis idea! She got me these feet when I was having a no good, very bad day! I was thinking about putting them outside! Sis pointed out how PRETTY they are. She made a great point, these shouldn't be out in the elements! We decided to have our rug "fall" on the wicked witch! 

Sis might have turned me to her crafty sidekick but she is coming around to my Halloween obsession! Now I just have to get her to watch sports....Baby steps folks! 

We do have some Thanksgiving decor but it seems like we are supposed to just skip it?! BOOOO (not the scary kind)!  I wonder if Mama and the Dadster will let put decorate their house for T-giving? 


Linus: Each year, the Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch that he thinks is the most sincere. He's gotta pick this one. He's got to. I don't see how a pumpkin patch can be more sincere than this one. You can look around and there's not a sign of hypocrisy. Nothing but sincerity as far as the eye can see.

We are going to stay up late waiting for "the Great Pumpkin"....and enjoy a sugar high!
