Let's Have a Quickie

That's what she said.

Get your minds out of the gutter—I of course, innocently meant that I only have time for a quick update today.

I have mixed feelings about this week. It's both kicking my ass and making me really excited all at the same time. For example, last night, I worked until 12:30am. That's for the birds. But deadlines linger this week and thus is my life right now until my "transition" is over.

BUT, the night was made better when my husband told me around 11:30pm that he booked our flight to Europe. WHAT WHAT! We love to travel and get the bug to go somewhere pretty frequently. Now, we typically don't just hop on over to Europe on a whim, but we've talked about this trip for awhile.

We've been talking about when we want to start having kids, and we both decided that one BIG trip was due before we think seriously about it. Last year it was Hawaii (granted, it was our honeymoon) and this year it's Europe. We were trying for South America, but unfortunately do not have thousands of dollars lying around to book flights, nor do we have unlimited vacation time that would allow us to see all the places we want to there. We DID however, have tons of airline miles and vouchers and thus, booked our flights for free! So we're off across the pond from Dec. 27 to Jan. 7!

So, that happened.

AND, my entire family is coming in town today for my cousin's wedding this weekend, so I'm SUPER excited. I'm talking sisters, nieces, dad, step mom, aunts, uncles, cousins, second cousins, brother in laws, etc. The week is jam-packed with activity, but what I'm most excited for (aside from the wedding of course) is Halloween!

We're hosting everyone - about 25 people - at our place for pizza, drinks and trick-or-treating! Some of us will take the little kiddos out and about in our hood while everyone else kicks it our place and drinks their faces off. Tis what we do best in the Zupek family.  I'm just really excited to spend some QT with people I don't get to see often enough.

Speaking of Halloween, is anyone else dressing up tomorrow? We dressed up on Saturday night and I'm repeating my outfit for the office work party tomorrow. Going to give more detail on this easy-peasy costume later this week, but here's a peek at the husband—er—MacGruber and I.

Sorry for this random post. I'm so insanely busy at work right now, I really didn't even have the 10 minutes it took for me to write this. And I'm especially sorry to those who have just joined the blog - read up on past stuff this year, don't let this be your first impression of me!

Speaking of new followers/fans, welcome to everyone! I was so excited to be a part of Erin's giveaway and I can't wait to get to know all of you more!

What are you all doing for Halloween?
