Happy Hallo-weenie!

Hi kids, Scooter here today, filling in for ma dukes who is off pinning or something. i swear that lady spends more time pinning food she will never make than, i don't know what.

Just thought I'd show off the TRAVESTY of a halloween costume this biatch decided to "dress" me up in this morning. We were almost out the door and she remembered. Doggone it.

If you can't see... the jacket is a spider web and the head is the spider. That's what I am. Freaking stupid spider head. Well played mom. Well played.

I mean, seriously. I'm a smart guy. My middle name isn't Einstein for nothin'!

That's my studious look. I'm in the process of updating my profile and want to attract a more intellectual crowd.

I guess my look could always be worse. Check out my brother from another mother.

His outfit is a skeleton. And since he's the biggest wuss ever he's scared to just be WEARING it.

Thank God this day only falls once a year.
Scoo-dawg out!

Accidental Shopping Spree

So today I'm linking up with my twin girl Karly and her girl Niki for 

all the cool kids are doing it so i'm jumping on the bandwagon.

this past month i've sort of gotten out of control with the online shopping.
and since i have zero self control here's my mini online shopping haul.

First up, Vickie Seeks.

So far of the 3, the only one I'm not so sure about is the leather sleeves sweatshirt.
However, I'm also not crazy about having to pay the return shipping for 1 shirt, so imma try to make this one work.

Next up, LOFT.

There was 1 other top I got from here, but I can't find an online photo. 
I also got a pair of boyfriend jeans that I returned immediately.

And last...
this one wasn't an online purchase, but who can ever resist a little Tar-jay.

Have you bought any fun fall clothes?

Stream of Consciousness

Do you ever just let your mind wander and suddenly it's running off to the most remote random places ever? I find it happening more and more.

Maybe its because lately there is so much LIFE going on... juggling work, marriage, home, family and friends can get overwhelming...

Here's a little sample of what goes on inside this crazy little Asian's F-Asain's brain...

It starts out with a totally focused and valid thought.

"After work, I need to go move G's car from the Best Buy lot to the commuter parking lot."

Simple, easy.... but then the "OH" happens... and then juuuust keeps going... like the damn Energizer bunny...

"OH and while I'm over there, I should go to Wegman's and get turkey for dinner, or should i make meatloaf.... i wonder if Wegman's will be crowded... i hope not, i don't want to smash anyone with my cart like last time... cuz then I'd get arrested and that would be bad...  and then who would take care of scooter... OH, i need to call the vet to get a refill on his meds... and drop my prescription off at CVS... i wonder what time the drive thru is open til... or should i get out of the car and go in, because maybe i need something in there.... do i need anything at CVS... anything... maybe I can just look at the nail polishes, i don't have any good colors... OH i think i'm getting nail polish in my ipsy bag... where is my ipsy bag? when is it coming? did i get the tracking email? OH crap i forgot to email so-and-so back about that work thing... i only got distracted because the two loud mouths outside my office were talking about her pet turtle again... i mean, whatever, turtles are cute, but WHO DOES THAT...
wait, did G ask me to move his car? I can't remember... OH i almost forgot i need to pick up dry cleaning which is near Chipotle......... Chi-Po-t-LAY.... "
Next thing I know I'm standing at the end of the line at Chipotle, totally wondering how I got there. And G comes home with a parking ticket. #oops #hadtofeedmyface #sorryimnotsorry

Happy Friday friends! (now i'm hungry).

Friday Pretties...

Just ordered this necklace from BaubleBar and can't wait for it's arrival! It's so girly and cute, and chosen by none other than beauty guru Miss Glamorazzi on YouTube. If you don't watch her videos, you should check them out!

In love with this bright pink lip for fall! Best part? The price tag.
This is totally matte and pretty much dries on your lips (which I love),
but you can always add a coat of gloss over it to glam it up even more!

Here's what it looks like on, don't mind the Jets jersey, we were on our way to a game.

And last but not least...
my pretty "girl" dog...
didn't you know scooter had a twin sister?

Happy Friday loves!

Say My Name, Say My Name...

So a couple weeks ago, I received an email from a co-worker. It began, Hi Shannon... 
Say what? 
Since when did my name change to Shannon? I mean, dude, we've worked together for 13 years and you still don't know my name? (This error was later blamed on his "artificial intelligence keyboard" or the fact that he's an asshat)

Then a few days later, G and I were out celebrating our anniversary. The waiter asked our names so the DJ could congratulate us (awwww) and G tells him, and he says, well happy anniversary Gary and Jenny!

Ummmmmm.... jenny? as in Forrest Gump, "Run Forrest Run" Jenny?

At this point, i am drunkenly hysterically laughing. And cussing my parents off for giving me such a difficult name.

I mean, let's be real y'all. Shana. Ok, seeeeems simple enough?
But is it, "shay-na" or "shann-a" or "shaun-a" or "shann-on" or "sha-nay-nay"?
(yeah, i went there with the martin reference, you know you love it.)
Apparently without the much needed "Y", no one knows.

Moral of the story? Give your kids EASY names. Like Joe. Or Bob. Or Mary.

Oh yeah, and we won't even get into how I have a Jewish first name, Italian last name (both maiden and married) and I'm a F-Asian (F-Asian = Fake Asian = adopted by a white family and not raised asian).

So yeah I'm a walking freaking enigma.

On second thought, just call me Jenny from now on.

Happy Friday!

Mani Mondays...

oh wait... it's not monday???
cuz this is usually how MY week feels...

OK, so i'm a day late and a dollar short.
LIFE has been getting in my way lately. Stop it life.

Two weeks ago, i decided to try this:
via Pinterest

Looks easy enough? No?
I ordered my stripping tape from Amazon and it finally came after a month from China.
My fellow Asian peeps took a while with that...

And without further ado...

Big. Fat. Fail.
First of all, this shit took about TWO hours to do.
And the stripping tape... blows donkey balls
You can see it peeling on the sides of my thumbs.
And no amount of trimming with cuticle scissors, and layering clear polish over the tape proved effective.

I used the sample of the Butter London that I received in my ipsy bag...

And actually I wasn't too impressed with that either.
Fail. Fail. Fail.

Better luck next time...

Cuz this week I did this....

Eh. Save your money.
So far, I have a love/hate relationship with these polish strips.
I love the design, I love Essie.
I hate how thick they are, and the fact that they were peeling within a day?
For ten buckaroos? No thanks.
I applied these Saturday night, and I doubt they'll last the whole week.

Have you tried stripping tape or nail polish strips?
