Election day! And fun size gluttony! And a free apron at Jane's blog!

Yeah! After today, I will not get any more robo-calls! Because, who listens to those things, anyhow? And I need to drop off my early ballot, which is not so early, but I have researched everything, including every single proposition, non partisan race, and judge. So I feel I have done my duty as an American citizen for today.

Halloween was fun. I always like the actual trick-or-treating, you know. Too bad I've been eating hundreds of tiny candy bars for 4 days now. (My Mom gives out full sized candy bars. She says they are the REAL fun size.) Need to quit eating, so that I can save my gluttony for New York in a few weeks! 

Today our high should be only 79! BRRR, is nearly chilly! So in celebration, I am going to attempt to wear a juicy tracksuit all the whole day long! And a bra, too, even! Oh, and my "I voted early" sticker, too! I totally think I can do it. I am gonna look super fine, people. Cause that bra really makes the whole outfit! If your see me on the street, you're gonna be like, "wow, see that hot-civic-minded-soccer-mom over there? She is medium foxy!" It might get pretty sweaty, later, but I can crank up the AC, if I need it.

My sister-in-law, Jane, is giving away an apron over to her place. That she will make you, her own self. Remember how she made one for me, for my birthday? And how, when I wear it, I feel like Donna Reed, only in color? So you should go enter to win, because if you do win, and you wear it to cook your dinner, you will not be able to resist humming "I Feel Pretty."

Does the apron come with a ginormous spatula and rockstar glasses, too? :)

Beeswax said...

alas, no, Stacey, but if you win the apron, and you would like to complete your ensemble, the spatula is from Pampered Chef (no, not a plug. I don't sell it), and the glasses from Goodwill. Jake takes the kids and gets me stuff on half price day. Like used rock star glasses.

79? How can you bear such a chill! You must post picture of you in your track suit, sticker, and bra!

Can't wait to see you in NYC! :-)

No pics of you in your gold bikini on Halloween? Nutz! I was really counting on that one . . .

Beeswax said...

Oh, heidi, maybe I can photoshop something for you!

All those fun size candy bars re so darn tempting I just can't help myself either :) this is a bad thing though seeing as how my #5 does NOT do well with the chocolate...

Wow! I'm impressed that you researched all the ballot initiatives and judges. That's what I meant to do, but ended up voting for the judges who are our customers (we mow their lawns).

Love the apron!

Darn, if Jane had her apron giveaway a little earlier and I won...I would have voted in my apron.

Lorie said...

I am looking forward to the end of the robo calls...but it hasn't happened yet! I am sure they will be calling until the polls close!

Frumpy Luv said...

love love love it!!! so glad the bra makes the outfit, ahh, how good are track suits??!!

Melissa Bastow said...

I would enter to win an apron, but that would be like one of those hairless naked mole rats entering to win a razor. The apron just wouldn't be used. Not that it isn't darling, but when do you even use one of those things?! (Clearly, someone more domestic should win it.)

Claire said...

Oh... my... goodness. You are SO funny! I've just read through some of your blog, and i'm killing myself laughing. I LOVE your Duchess story! Anyhoo... HILARIOUS. Don't mind if I add you to my blogroll? I'll need to come back and stalk some more when the kids are in bed. Why are they such a nuisance to my life?! HAhaha..

tutietutu said...

You have such a fun blog! So funny and well written!

Pam said...

Dang it I forgot to wear my voted early sticker. I'm definitely not as cool as you. Cute apron though.

I'm not even going to talk about the fun size candy because I have great shame just thinking about them.

Alishia said...

Oh, Kelly, I can always get a good laugh on your blog. I haven't been by in a while, been trying to get my head above water, but came by tonight to laugh, and laugh, I did!!

I loved the guest post from your dad. I needed an explanation because I, too, am frustrated and don't really understand either. Thanks, Kelly's Dad!!

And the fun memory of Ardith made me cry. She is an amazing woman!!!! Just like you!!

I'm leaving a comment here for your other blog. I tried to leave a comment there, but I have no blogger account and for some reason Google refuses to send me an email to activate my account, though I have tried multiple times. On this site, however, you let me choose other options! (If you change that on your other blog I would love to make comments there!)

You asked for food storage recipes. We have been living almost exclusively on our food storage for 22 months. Here's my site, with lots of recipes:

help me, I can't stop eating my children's halloween candy. It's like crack hiding in my bedroom.

And I would wear an apron if I looked as cute as you in one.

Natalie said...

Thanks, girl! I won, I won! I wonder if she'll pack my mommy up in the box just to make it extra special.
Prolly not...well maybe the box will smell like orange groves and sunshine at least.
Sigh.....
