Auntie Em!!

I need a pair of ruby slippers so I can click my heels 3 times and make this storm disappear!  Sandy is fast approaching and they are saying the worst of it will start in about 4 hours from now!  Right now the wind is howling and it is raining!

It doesn't look too bad yet!

I live in the direct path of the hurricane which is very scary as you really don't know what to expect no matter what the newscasters say.  Schools are cancelled today and tomorrow and work was closed today and will probably be tomorrow as well.  Joe left for work this morning and gets off work right when it is supposed to be really bad out!  Grande and Tall where home for the weekend and left last night and right as they were getting in the car they got the call that their University cancelled classes today.  They decided to go back anyhow since they thought if they stayed that they wouldn't be able to get back until after the storm!

See the eye of the hurricane at 2am?  That is exactly where I live!

They are calling for winds up to 50mph and wind gusts up to 80mph!  Yikes!  I'm just praying that everything will be okay!

Venti's sister-in-law got married on Saturday and it was a really get wedding! It was extra special because the bride was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma 2 years ago and has since received a bone marrow transplant and is now doing extremely well!

It was the first wedding that I have been to since Venti & Mocha's!  I found this plain black dress that I loved but it needed some bling added to it!

I found just what I needed at the fabric store!  A couple of buttons and some rhinestone rope which I sewed until my plain black dress was all blinged out!!

Then I decided to do my own hair and thought it turned out fabulous!

And here we are all ready to go!

I had to laugh at Joe in this picture!

Venti, Joe and I at the reception.

Don't you just love Venti's bow tie??  The reception was at an Antique Automobile Museum!  Very unique!

Thank goodness trick or treat in our neighborhood was last Thursday or it would probably be cancelled with the storm!

Short all ready to go!

Joe dressed up to scare the big kids!

I wanted to make sure my post was completed before we are supposed to lose power!  They say we could lose it up to a week!  I sure hope they are wrong!

Hope everyone has a great week and Happy Halloween!!  I hope everyone keeps safe during this storm!


  1. Take care and be safe in this storm!

  2. You did a great job on your dress and hair. Be safe and let us know as soon as you can that you are okay.

  3. Thank you Trudy and everything is okay here! We only lost power for a short while and a couple of tree limbs. I am praying for those who were less fortunate. Hope all is well!

  4. Hope you're all ok, and that the storm has passed on by now.
    Love how you dressed up for Hallowe'en early!

  5. Hope you are all OK from the storm! Such a scary time. Love your dress!

  6. I hope you and your family are OK.

    I am in Delaware and we faired very well. Not hard hit like Jersey or New York.
