Happy Halloween everyone! I love October, the time of year is just the best and brings out all these feeling and sentimental vibes, do you get that? I am so about Halloween and I always want to dress up, yet every year I end up with no plans and no costume. I am just going to blame that on my last million Halloweens have been spent with boyfriends who have no spirit and liked to conceal mine. This year I am finally single and still failed. I want to dress up so badly in a good costume!
One of the two Halloween parties I went to in college (see, lame alert there I only went to two) my bffff and I dressed up as 80’s workout girls and should have gotten the award for most clothes on at a college Halloween party. Yep leggings, leg warmers, and all, AND IT WAS HOT. Temperature hot, we were not looking hot.
The second party, I was technically out of college and I went with my sister “so we could go to a party together for once,” but really my not so secret ulterior motive was to see my ex. Sometimes I am just so sly. That costume was being one third of the three blind mice with two girlfriends. We wore black dresses, mouse ears, and sunglasses. Simple yet somehow we won the costume contest… I don’t know maybe all of the the judges were the blind ones but I will take it. I did better than see my ex with his new girl which happened to be one of my sorority sisters, I won the costume contest in front of everyone by basically not trying. Talking about this now but I am pretty positive that I wrote about this last Halloween. That is what happens when your glory days consist of parties you can count on one hand.
This year at work, my friend (who is also my coworker but above all she is my friend) and I are wearing olive shirts, printing out a dollar bill, and taping it to us because we are SINGLE. Creative or just an excuse to wear jeans, OR a way to tell the practically no hot guys at work that we are available? The office may never know.
I hope you all have a fun and safe Halloween! I am going to go trick-or-treating with my niece and bribe candy off of her. She said I can go as a princess unicorn, I am all about it.
What is the best costume you have ever worn for Halloween?
PS – my sister is a hair and make-up artist and did this fun creepy clown look on me just for a photo. No parties, just washed it off after. But I for damn sure looked badass!
Happy first day of November! I hope everyone had a good and safe weekend. Just a quick recap of mine, Friday night I binge watched season 2 of The Originals on Netflix and am kind of sad that I finished it so fast. Now I have to watch the current season online until I get caught up on the few episodes I am behind, and then wait a week to watch each new one like a peasant. Saturday was Halloween, but obviously you knew that, and I woke up with the worst migraine. I am pretty sure my head knows when I am planning on having fun and just hates me. My boyfriend and I had planned on going to our friends for dinner and to hand out candy. While he watched the USC game before we went, I slept again to try to make my headache go away. It was a miracle but by the time we left it was gone! That never happens.
We got down to our friends and she made dinner for us. Some of you may know her, she is one of my best friends Amanda from Glitter it Gold. If you haven’t checked out her blog then you should because she is one of the best cooks that I know! She made the best steak! It was a perfect night, that was until I accidentally made my Michael Kors watch fall off of the bathroom counter and it shattered! I seriously almost cried, I am determined to get it fixed though.
This morning we left Amanda and her husband’s house to go to my parents. I had to go to my friend’s daughter’s first birthday! So I was going to drop my boyfriend off at my parents to hang out until I was done. My friend’s daughter is adorable and seriously loved her cake, she got chocolate wasted. You can actually check her out as well at The Mom Struggle is Real. (I know I have quite a few blogger friends that are like my real friends, but we help to motivate each other!) Anyways, this little one’s party was so nice and it was nice to see my friend because we never see each other, yet we are still close. After the party I went back to my parents and hung out with the family for a bit. It was a pretty filled weekend but I felt accomplished.
Now that I am finally home I had to sit down and write. Not just this blog though. Today is the first day of nanowrimo which stands for national novel writing month. I am going to try it. I already had an idea and it it became an even better idea recently when I realized what I really wanted the book to be about. I took it as a sign and figured I should try this. I got a bit of a head start and have a few pages already. Not to put myself down, but I know that I will not finish a novel in a month and that is okay, I don’t want to have this goal that I am not confident in achieving because then I will just feel like a failure. Instead I just want to write everyday. Somedays may be a little some may be a lot. I think though if I can at least write everyday then I can get this story down on paper. It may not even sound great when I get it all down, but i will feel so accomplished. After that comes editing so I know eventually I can make it great. So please hold me accountable, writing every day!
That is about it for the weekend, it is bed time. Good night!
PS- tomorrow will actually be in the low 70’s so please share my excitement and wear a sweater!
