What happened to please and thank you?

For these days are just rude.
So's Halloween. Duh. This year was the first year I've handed out candy to trick or treaters and I must say...I was not impressed!
First of all...wee only had maybe 15-20 kids ring our doorbell. Pathetic. I was expecting way more!
Second of all...there were maybe 5 of those 20 kids that said thank you. I had one kid ring the doorbell continuously until I opened the door...violently shove his hand in the candy bowl and take a handful (probably like 5 or 6 pieces) of candy and run away without saying a word. My parents would have never let me behave like that!
I have no real reason for this post other than to rant about how kids need manners. The end.

So....uh, you wanna be friends?

This subject comes up with Rayce and I pretty often and we can't seem to fix it.
Basically, we have no friends in the town we live in. All our friends are in our hometown which is 2 hours away. Sucks.
Is it just us or do other people have trouble making friends as adults? It's so hard when there's no "in" like a mutual friend or you work together or something. Rayce and I both don't really care to be social with any of the people we work with or like to go out to bars all that how do we make friends?
Our next door neighbors are a young couple just like us. I really want to just knock on their door and be all like "hey...umm do you wanna be friends with us?" But honestly, that'd be pretty frickin weird. Do I go over and borrow a cup of sugar? Do I invite them over to dinner? I'm so awkward. And shy. So this stuff is hard for me (Rayce is too, double suck)
Rayce's cousin Bryce was over tonight and he told us we should start a card club or something for young couples since we like games and cards and such. do we start something like that when we don't know anyone here?! We live in a college town so it seems like the only thing to do around here is go out and get hammered. While fun every once in awhile...we're definitely past that stage in our lives and want actual friends, not drinking buddies.
So, making friends as adults....suggestions?

His & Her Q & A

Who is someone you look up to and why?
His: Probably my padre. Because he grew up without a dad and he's still a good dad. He always makes sure we all have what we want before he gets what he wants.
Her: My mom. She's just the best person I know. She (and my dad) has always been there for us and given us everything we need and most of what we want. She has been the best example of what I want to be like.

What is your favorite Halloween tradition?
His: Carving pumpkins
Her: I've never had any real Halloween traditions. Carving pumpkins is going to be one now though.

If you were a fruit, what would you be?
His: A strawberry, cuz you could cover me in chocolate or sugar and put me in your mouth. (HA!)
Her: A mango, I have no reason lol

How are you like your dad or how are you like your mom?
His: I'm like my dad with jokes and the way we talk. I'm like my mom in the way we look.
Him: I have my dad's ugly feet. I'm like my mom in that I'm very kind and compassionate and love kids.

What is your favorite classic disney movie?
His: The Rescuers Down Under
Her: Aladdin or The Little Mermaid

What is your favorite roadtrip snack?
His: Tootsie rolls.
Her: Chex Mix

What is one superficial benefit of being married? (i.e. someone to split chores with, someone to rub your back, etc.)
His: Someone to cuddle with (how precious is he, seriously)
Her: Aww..I agree. And someone to scratch my head/play with my hair

What do you do for a living?
His: Work for a company that rents and sells heavy construction equipment
Her: I work at a daycare

What is something your other half does that took a long time/is taking a long time to get used to?
His: You leave shit laying all over the house. Mostly your pants. You take them off as soon as you get inside and leave them there for a week.
Her: Yeah...that's true. Umm...watching/listening to car/motorbike videos on youtube all the damn time!

What do you consider "your song?" (or what was your first dance?)
His: Do we have one of those?
Her: Haha...nope. We don't.
His&Her Q&A

I suck at blogging

I haven't posted a thing on this blog in over a week...shamefull! I wanted to blame it on my vacation but let's face it...I've been home since Tuesday. It's Friday. Whoops. I like to look at pictures when I read  stalk other peoples' blogs, so here's a little photo dump from my vacay to North Carolina!
Mom, me, my sister Mal

I'm on vacay!

I think 75% of the times I have flown I have had to sit in the very last row of the airplane. Right next to the shitter. Not sure why this always happens to me?? I used to think this was the worst place to get stuck in an already cramped space with tons of strangers...but on my flight to North Carolina last night I came up with some pretty good reasons why the last row in a plane is the best spot to be. 

#1. As I're right next to the shitter, in case any bathroom issues arise. Hypothetically of course since I'm scared to use the "lavatory." I'm afraid there will be some gnarly turbulence when I'm in there.

#2. You get to keep the whole can of Gingerale (or your drink of choice) instead of just getting the tiny cup...pretty baller if you ask me.

#3. You can fall asleep and do one of those violent jerk yourself awake things and only have the guy across the aisle from you see.

#4. You can spy on the flight attendants. 

So yeah, I'm at my mom's house in Wake Forest, North Carolina. My cousin Rose is getting married Saturday. Lovebirds.
