I didn't realize how much of a slacker I had been on posting until I looked at my last post that was dated last Tuesday! Oops! Sorry everyone. This past week has been cray cray and things only seem to be getting more crazy. I have so many things to update everyone on and the time that I usually use to write all of my posts is in my down time at work and here lately, I haven't had that downtime, so my posting has of course been lacking.

I think I am going to have to start writing my posts at night and scheduling them from now on because here within the next month at work, it is going to be beyond crazy! Our biggest event of the year is coming up which means lots of people getting paid and lots of people turning in check request. And guess who gets to enter in all of those check requests? Yep, you guessed it. That would be me. So needless to say, my downtime is really going to be non existent.

This past weekend I had my Bridal Shower which was a lot of fun. I will do an entire post on that so be sure to look out for it. I also went to a Halloween party. I couldn't decide what I wanted to do for a costume so Friday night, Aran and I went to Party City and were browsing through their costumes. Well, I saw a Little Red Riding Hood costume that I liked and so I asked to try it on along with a Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz costume. When the sales guy came out he said that the only one that he had that was in the size I needed for the Little Red Riding Hood costume was torn. Well, me being the bargain shopper that I am, asked if I could still try it on. I figured if it was something that I could fix, then I could buy it and hopefully get a discount on it. So I tried it on and luckily the tear was not actually a tear and the stitching that held the fabric to the zipper in the back had just come out.

Since it fit, I decided to go for it because it was 40% off because of the "tear" in the back. That would make it only $17.99. That was an awesome price in my mind. So after looking around a bit more for a costume for Aran we headed to the register with my costume and one other thing that I had picked up as we were walking around. When we got to the register the manager came over and applied the discount and I don't know if she was just frazzled or what, but she ended up giving the costume to me for $10!!! Can you believe that? I knew at that point that the costume was meant to be. So without further ado, here is me in my costume...

And here is Aran in his(he is a Hipster)...

And here we are together at the party...

We had a lot of fun and it was definitely fun dressing up. The only down side to the night was that my costume was so short that I couldn't bend over in the slightest. I either had to stand or sit the whole time or else everyone was going to be getting a show, haha! 

In other news, this is what I woke up to this morning and what I have been watching out my office window all day...

This picture doesn't do it justice either. It has been snowing since I left my apartment this morning and it doesn't seem to be stopping! Please, please, please keep snowing! 

I hope that everyone has been doing well and I fully intend to get caught up on everyone's blogs within the next couple of days. Sorry again about being a slacker this past week! Have a great day everyone!



  1. Your costumes are great! And I hear you on falling behind on blogging. I started planning out my posts a few weeks ago and it has made it so much easier to post consistently! :)

  2. OMG SNOW already!?!?! WOW. Your costumes worked out great! I can't wait to post ours after this weekend of what we are going as!

  3. $10?? That's amazing and you look great it in! Looks like a fun party :)


Comments are way rad and totally make my day. I love reading each and everyone one of them :)
