Just another manic Monday & a giveaway

Morning peeps!

This weekend was a totally unplanned one. First of all, Nate and I decided to go out to dinner (classy Applebees' date for the win) and I had my second steak this week. I am pretty sure my body is about to go into shock from all the beef I have consumed as of late. After dinner we headed to the grocery store and picked out pumpkins to carve. No pictures yet though, you have to check back later this week to see it with the rest of my fall decor. 

I woke up Saturday thinking that I had to work a Komets game that night and so my plans did not include an elaborate costume for a friends party that was also going on that night. After I checked the schedule though, I realized I did not work and I immediately started racking my brain for a costume idea. Both Nate and my BIL shot down my idea of dressing like Miley Cyrus so I turned to twitter for help.


As you can see y'all were no help. So I decided I was going to be a skeleton and with the help of Martha Stewart and Chrisspy I made it happen.







She was clearly better at the skull than I was, but for a last minute/first attempt at it I think it turned out pretty well.


It was a nice night spent with friends dressed in silly costumes - I was the only one who took a darker route with the outfit. We had a cheetah and a hunter, Scooby and Shaggy, a skeleton (me), and an earlier version of my husband (my brother-in-law). This will be the only Halloween party this year probably, it works for me!



  Sunday hit hard. I woke up with a slight fever and sore throat so other than getting the dog out for a walk I did a whole lot of nothing. Looking back on it I am a bit stressed now about the rest of the week and all I have to get done, but I will get it under control!

Now, on to the days of #blogtober14 that I missed.

October 25 | My Favorite Book


Is Your Mama a Llama (Reissue) (Paperback)
Buy it here

Okay, so my favorite book is a children's book. Judge me. When I look back though at all the books I have read and which ones make me smile this one tops the list. I just remember reading it with my parents and other siblings and it is just a good reminder of younger days.

October 26 | Who would play you in a movie

Rachel Bilson


First of all she just seems so sweet and happy, so I would love her to play me. Also, it is who I always get told I look like so it seems fitting. I still don't see it, but people tell me it all the time so I who am I to argue.

Check back later today for another #blogtober14 post - a letter to your younger self.
