The Girl Who Cried Chainsaw

Stickin it to the man. Can't keep me and my outfit posts away.

 I used to think I would the first one dead in a horror movie, seeing as how my fight or flight response is touch and go, at best.

I woke up from a nightmare Tuesday morning, sweaty, confused and terrified. I was being chased by a group of men with a chainsaw, and had taken shelter in a neighbor's house shortly before my nightmare came to an abrupt halt. What woke me up, you ask? A real chainsaw going outside our window. I shook Micah awake, went to flip on the lamp, only to find the power was out, which we all know is the first thing chainsaw wielding crazies do before they slaughter their victims.

I was in a full blown panic, sure that some man wearing a suit made from someone else's skin was out there ready to chop us up. Being a patient and startled husband, he gathered the dogs and my shaking self into the car, pistol at his side . Because we all know the major error in the character that dies first is that they stay put. 

Micah drove us around the dark neighborhood for a good 10 minutes, soothing me and two dogs like cranky infants in a car seat. Come to find out, the great city of Austin decided it was a fine time to trim trees.

No more scary movies for me. Ever.

  5. Are you kidding?!?? They were trimming trees in the dark? That's terrifying. On a different note, that skirt is amazing! No chances you have a second one in your closet you're trying to sell?

    Funny story, though I know that feeling! I don't know how many times I've woken up my husband because of something that's scared me at night! I totally avoid scary movies!

  23. I love that first picture! And that totally sucks - I've had moments like that of sheer panic and it takes a while to snap back to reality. Ugh I can definitely relate.

  32. Talk about bad timing on the tree trimming! ;) And what a marvelously patient hubby you have. ;) LOVE that first pic. The entire outfit is just lovely. And seriously not what the girl who dies first would be wearing.

  34. Well, that is the funniest thing I've heard all day! (Scary movies are the worst. After Scream came out, every time I'd come home after curfew and the porch lights were off, I was convinced there was a masked killer hiding in the bushes I had to walk past to reach the front door. And that is how I learned to unlock a door in record time :)
    This outfit is beautiful and that first photo is Ah.mazing.
