I’ve had a change of heart… instead of going as Lady Gaga this Halloween, I am going to be Katy Perry.  Since losing weight a lot of people have told me that I look like her, which is extremely flattering.  I’m not one to ruin a good thing!  Plus, there are going to be too many Lady Gaga’s out there this year.  The only problem is that my KP cupcakes haven’t come in the mail yet… I’m sweating it this close to Halloween!  Please do a good-luck Candy Land dance for me.  🙂

I love this windy fall weather.  Here in Alabama, it is rare that we get a true fall season… usually it goes from hot to cold, then cold to hot several times before it is completely frigid for 3 months.  This year there has actually been a middle ground with highs in the 60’s & 70’s.  It’s been really nice!

The one thing that does suck about the fall is SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder).  I get waves of it here and there… mostly because there is just so much going on this time of year.  Where there’s a high, there is usually a low.  I am really glad that I’m in such good shape, I think that helps a lot with mental balance.  I could be getting more sleep though.

My reading has been coming along really great in preparation for NaNoWriMo.  I haven’t gotten to Julie & Julia yet, which was pretty high on my list to study.  If it comes down to reading it during November, that will be perfectly fine.  I have a good grasp on the content that I want to explore for my own book already.  One book that crossed my path that I didn’t expect to like was The Washingtonienne.  Believe me, this book definitely wouldn’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but I find it to be extremely funny & attractively honest.  It’s pretty trashy, but also very interesting.

Good news!  Vero has agreed to let me expose her on my blog.  🙂  It’s gonna be fun to do a written portrait of her for you guys!  I’m thinking I will tackle that entry on Thursday or Friday.  See you tomorrow for Weigh-In Wednesday!
