GNO: Is It Autumn Already?

Hi! So glad you are joining us this week for Twitter GNO!

Twitter GNO Button
Hosted by:
Carissa @ GoodNCrazy and Jyl @ MommyGossip

I have it on good authority that it never rains in my new high mountain desert home. Yeah, right.

It's been raining and/or cloudy for several days now. And it's making me nervous. Is Autumn really here for good? I refuse to turn on the heat.
(Go put on a sweater if YOU're cold!--Sound just like my mom, eh?)
I'm told there is often snow here for Trick -Or-Treating. Great.

How Do You Decorate for Halloween? Rosh Hashana? Autumn? Thanksgiving?


Do you have your kid's Halloween costumes ready?
Home-made? Store-bought? Good find on Ebay?
Or just a dang hand-me-down?
What was the best costume your kid (or you!) ever donned?

I'm thinking everyone should get a picture of their best past Halloween costume and get it loaded up either on your blog or on a photobucket/flickr account?
And then figure out how to use

Because at the twitter GNO TONIGHT (Oct. 7th) we are all going to share our best, our worst, our ugliest, our scariest, our pretty pretty princess-est photos!

Do you think we can find a way to vote for best past costume? Send me suggestions on how to do that? Cuz if you've been with us before it is CRAZY!

We could:

Direct Message Rogbark (me) with your vote after seeing everyone's link on Twitter GNO. And I can compile them later...


All vote on one of those voting things back at my blog the next day...but everyone would have to Direct Message Rogbark your entry photo?

Help? I can't think of any other way?

Run and upload your best past Halloween photo to your blog or your own photobucket account, I can't wait to see 'em.

Here's mine.100_6456

It was the 'Superhero Saves a Princess' year.

It's not my best though. I'm saving THAT for GNO!

I don't Twitter, but I see it all over the place. However, I still don't really understand the concept of a Twitter group.

And do you personally know Jay?

Jenni said...

Hey, there's a gal kissing Twilight. She needs to be my friend. 'Cause, you know (or may not know), I am kind of an expert about the books. And the movie. And all things Meyer.

A self-professed expert, but still...just putting it out there. It's not's a profession.

I can't do a GNO on Twitter...when would I have time to BLOG???? HA!

Kate said...

Man, I think I'm going to have to miss it this week. Work is crazy and all my free time has been spent trying to get my freelance projects finished. Uffda. Oh, and your blog award (which is two weeks late in getting up on the blog) is awaiting you... feel free to use it as a nice paperweight.

Mikki said...

OK, I linked up, but I screwed up the first time--sorry.
I'll try to pop in and out during the evening.

Deb said...
