Irrational Fears

A week ago I posted this picture on my instagram feed and got quite a few fun replies.
I have a very valid irrational fear of Puffer Fish!  They scare the HELL out of me!  I don't know what it is about them but I have freak out when I see them.  My family and friends think it is really funny to point out every puffer fish they see.  My parents went on a cruise and paid $14.00 for the drink of the day just so they could bring me this cup!

 Joke is on them though...cause I think she is cute!  They also like to text me pictures of them...NOT NICE!!  Here is a list of some valid irrational fears that people commented with. 

Puffer fish of death!  He just looks like he is smiling but really he wants to eat your soul!

Spiders was said several times!  And I am gonna have to agree they are scary scary creatures!

Clowns was also a very popular one.  While I am not scared of them...they are not my favorite things.

Getting Old.  I don't think that getting old is a bad means you are still alive!
I think that she is adorable!

Bees and Wasps.  Evil evil creatures!!  As one friend put it "They're horrible and want to hurt you."

Touching the inside of a toilet.  Ha ha not gonna lie I giggled a bit when I saw this one...but heck who am I to judge a fear?!?!

Chickens.  I think they are kinda cute.

Losing a child.  Totally valid fear!!  This is a fear of mine as well.

Tim Curry.  LOL need I say more??

Ha ha so did I touch on one of your fears?  What are you scared of??

Mommy Envy....Well not really

Where in the HECK was Pinterest when my son was younger??  There are so many cute reveal,  nursery, birthday, photography, ect...ideas!  My son has decided that he is to big for stuff like that, he is 10.  Sometimes I look on blogs and see all the cute things that moms are doing for their kiddos and I get mommy envy.  I wish that I could have done some of those things while Ashton was growing up.  I am not a very crafty person LOL but I know that with the help of Pinterest I would have done so many things for him.  BUT I did the best that I could for Ashton.  He has had a great childhood.  So I guess even with all the things that I didn't do....I made up with fun things that we did do.  He has been to Disney twice, he has been on a cruise, he has been on multiple vacations.  So I guess I don't really have mommy envy, cause I have been and will continue to be a great momma!!  Ha ha this post is all over the place, does it even make sense?

So speaking of things that I have done with Ashton, this Saturday was full of fun!!  It started with Ashton singing at a retirement community with the 5th grade choir.  Then after that we drove out to George Ranch Historical Park for the Texian Market days.  My son and my nephew had a BLAST!!  The ranch is set up for you to travel through the 1830s, 1860s, 1890s and 1930s.  There are battle reenactments, vintage baseball, medicine shows, and lots of other fun activities.  We stayed there pretty much all day.  After we left there we went to the Alvin Community College Fall Festival.  They had tons of games for the boys to play and they came away with a ton of candy.  After that we went to the Santa Fe High School's Candy Fest!  Ha ha cause they needed more candy.  Candy Fest was a lot of fun.  The different HS clubs decorate the hallways and then all the students dress up in the theme of their hallway and hand out candy.  After you go through the hallways you go into the cafeteria and they have a bunch of games.  Needless to say the boys came home with a TON of candy!

Here are a few instagram pics from the weekend.  I am so obsessed with instagram!  If you would like you could follow me HERE and I will follow back!  I love looking at everyone's pics!

Sunday Blog Day??

Happy Sunday everyone!!  I should be at the Houston Air Show right now but Ashton woke up at 3:00 this morning telling me that he was sick.  He has been in bed all day with the stomach virus...YUCK!!  So I have decided that today would be a blog day!  I am going to work on making some posts for the week.  And since there is no football on today, Read: Texans are on their Bye Week so are not playing, I will not be distracted.  I mean don't get me wrong I am still watching football lol just don't really care about who wins.  Well I hope that everyone has a great Sunday!!

Happy Friday everyone!!  I hope that your week was great!!  Today I am linking up with Ashley for Friday's Letters!

Dear Twitter,
I sometimes forget about you and I am sorry about that!  So I have made a new name and I am starting over.  My new name is @dani_whitehall and I promise to be using you!!

Dear Texas Weather,
You feel amazing today!  Could you please stay like this for awhile!  Stop teasing me with the cool fall weather for a few days just to go back to blazing hot and humid temps!
A Texas girl that loves the cold 

Dear Texans,
I am not mad or even upset anymore about your loss to the Packers.  Now that ya'll have lost a game and the pressure of being undefeated is gone lets get back to the AWESOME team that I know ya'll are!  Ya'll play the Ravens this week and lets call this game revenge for the playoff game that they won against us.  Get out there and kick butt!! 
A Huge Texans Football Fan

I love you with all my heart and you know that!!  BUT if you don't stop thinking up mystery illnesses EVERY morning when you wake up for school I am going to sell you to the highest bidder scream!!  Dealing with "I'm sick" every morning is really getting old.  You have 6 1/2 years of school left....time to just get used to it!!
Your loving mom

Dear Boyfriend,
You are awesome.  Thanks for putting up with my quirks and random outbursts.  LOL it takes a special man to put up with me and you are doing great!

Dear Friends,
You are all amazing.  I am lucky to have such great friends!!

Hi, I am Dani and I am addicted...

I am soooo very obsessed with Pinterest!!  I could honestly spend all night pinning things.  I just wish that every time I pinned something it would magically appear in my house.  That would be awesome!  Ha ha!!  I am linking up with Michelle at The Vintage Apple for Oh, How Pinteresting.  And let me tell you it is ALWAYS hard for me to choose just a few favorite pins.  I did however choose 10 of my very favorites.  And if you would like to see the rest of my pins then head on over to my Pinterest and follow me!!

Pumpkin Painting Party

I have seen pins all over pinterest of painted pumpkins and thought to myself that it looked easy and would be fun for my son and nephew.  So on Sunday morning we had a pumpkin painting party!!  I was right, the boys and my boyfriend's daughter LOVED it!  They had a blast making a mess painting the pumpkins.  I decided that I wanted to get in on the fun also so I painted 3 pumpkins of my own.  In the end we painted 14 pumpkins!!  I have put all of them on our entertainment center for some fun Halloween decorations.  Here are some instagram pics of our pumpkin painting party!!
