NaBloPoMo Day Thirty - Saving Up

Did I really just do this NaBloPoMo thing? Me? The not-so-regular-poster? Well, heck! I can do anything! Just so you know, I almost didn't make it. My car broke down, I have a ton of work to complete, the house is in critical mode, and The Offspring had a large paper due - which meant little computer time for me. But I MADE IT!

Notice that new poll in the sidebar? I'm taking off Saturday and Sunday, and will be back for Fun Monday. YOU can determine when I should post again! So vote, and don't worry about hurting my feelings.

As promised, I had been saving these photos of The Offspring from her Halloween dance and a Halloween party. Every year, she will change some elements of "the look" to make each a little different. For the party? I think she was going for drag queen vampiress. With AWESOME platform boots! She really WAS wearing fangs at the time. I want these eyelashes: For the dance? I'm guessing Hot Bloody Zombie. Thank you for supporting me and encouraging me and actually reading my daily drivel during NaBloPoMo - you made it fun, and a lot less painful than I expected. I am actually enjoying this blog more, and I guess that's a great thing. HAPPY DECEMBER!

M@ said...

Tig Jr. is cute. If I was, like, 14, I'd be all over that.

Okay, who am I kidding. If I was like... 22. :)

Willowtree said...

You did it!!!

Tiggerlane said...

sandy - thanks, it was hard fought.

m@ - you are naughty! And now I'm gonna have to keep on eye on some of my 22-year old male friends. And she will be, like, 14 in a month.

willowtree - hey, I can't believe it either!

karisma said...

Now Tigger, I was all for raving your values until I saw the offspring.

Stunning, Gorgeous, Amazing came to mind then Arggghhhhh! Is that my daughter you have hiding there (No. 3 I mean) Looks just like something she would insist on doing to herself to make the mama proud.

Congrats on reaching your destiny with the BloMe thing. Im sure all that entered were blown away together. I hope you all win a nice prize.

Desert Songbird said...

I can't believe Nov. 30 is finally here. Whew! We made it!

The Offspring looks so grown up. I think she's only about 18 months older than mine, but she might as well be five years!

Beckie said...

You did it and you did a great job! It is over - Yay!

Tiggerlane said...

karisma - Wanna borrow the kid? She's really snarky. Trust me. She's not as darling as she looks!

desert songbird - the only thing that makes her look much younger is the fact that she's only 4'10" - about the size of a sixth grader! We made it!

beckie - YES! Total YEAH! This month wore me out, but it was a lot of fun.

Melissa said...

Amber is gorgeous. I want those eyelashes too. Can you start a feature with Amber's beauty tips for moms who need help? ;)

Congratulations! We did it! NO MORE BLOWING CLOWNS!!! :)

Matt-Man said...

Your daughter is actually 25 and you stunted her growth by forcing her to smoke, right? Cheers Tigger!!

Little Miss Moi said...

Dear tiggerlane. Cute photos. I love your daughter's eyelashes! COngrats on surviving NoBloPoMo(did I get it right? Willowtree has totally bastardised it for me).

Junebug said...

She's only 14? Wow! She is hot! :D Spoken as a mother of two daughters....

Tiggerlane said...

melissa - believe it or not, I did the kiddo's makeup! Well, not on the second photo...want me to do yours? (I can't do mine well, but I can doll up someone else!)

matt-man - Dangit, you caught me! (Hack, cough)

little miss moi - yeah, willowtree HAS made it interesting! I'm sticking with the clown theme.

junebug - now if I can just help her keep her figure...she has a sweet tooth, and has packed a bit on since quitting sports. Then, maybe I can be a good example to her...and lose some weight!

Preston said...

Wow! Holy.... Something. Your daughter is gorgeous. I'm worried about her dating now AND I am worried mine. Why am I worried about yours? I'm not sure. But I am.

(This is Simply Jenn... for some reason it will only let me log into blogger/google so I'm using my son's.)

Kerith Collins said...

she looks great...and scary

Dawn said...

Congratulations on a fine finish. The Offspring has some cool looks for halloween.

Tiggerlane said...

kerith - I think she likes to go looking all "hot" one night, and creepy the next...she LOVES this holiday!

dawn - thanks! And Halloween is SO her thing...totally. She talks about what she will be all year long.

M@ said...

I knew it! She has "14" written all over her. I can't believe you let her dress like that for school. :) She must go to a special academy.

Claudia said...

She's a little vixen, isn't she???

Tiggerlane said...

m@ - it was a school DANCE...they bend the rules a bit. However, she has worn the corset with an undershirt - and NOT the makeup.

claudia - OH YES...and now she's moving into a new stage...with egyptian-style eyeliner and Joan-Jett style hair. Drama queen!
