Halloween fun

it is 2 days away from my second favorite first favorite is Thanksgiving, of course. I love Halloween because I will take any excuse to dress up and party! My costume for this year is almost complete, just working out the last little details. I will give you a hint, I used a whole lotta yarn in my creation. This year it was half bought, half home made, but even the store bought items have been altered to my liking :)

To show you how much me and Matt get in the spirit this time of year, I thought I would take a little walk down memory lane of Halloween's past costumes. Enjoy :)

Ron Bergundy and Veronica Corningstone. "And Thanks for stopping By San Diego" ;) we love Anchorman

With 2007 came sluttier costumes... and only appropriate for my dirty mouth and Jameson drinking era was to be a Sailor, and Mr Matt as Steve Zissou.. Life Aquatic!

I went with the Cowgirl theme, and Matt went for Stretchy pant as Nacho Libre...and of course Shae was my little pony with a mini cowboy!

Shae was a lion or a "Monster" and Matt was Max from Where the Wild Things are, and I was carrying on the theme of completing the Village People get-ups as a Native American. Mind you Matt had 2 teeth extracted just a few hours prior to this outting, and his drugged up self made the night that much more entertaining!

I went with 2 looks last year, for work I was Garth with my friend Gina as Wayne. And for the evening...
We went with the 80's theme. Matt was Cru Jones from Rad and me a Carebear, Love-A-Lot Bear :)

For some reason 2006 has been lost in history, I cant find the pictures anywere, but I was Alice in Wonderland, and I cant even remember what Matt was, hmph.

I can't wait to show you what we came up with for this year, and of course Shae has something in store as well! Happy Trick or Drinking everyone!!

My Typical Day

5am- wake up, get dressed, hopefully have enough time to grab some sort of sustenance for breakfast, and run out the door
7am (sometimes 7:15..depending on my morning and my 45 minute commute)- get to work. The next 9+ Hours I will be plugging away
9am- 2 cups down of office it Friday yet?!
1pm- lunch, either something thrown in a bag from home, or a walk through the Office parking lot to Baja Fresh, or if I am feeling fancy, The Stand.
1:30-4pm- woooorrrkkk it Friday yet?!
4pm- drive home. And by the time I get there, if I am feeling up to it, will take some of these for an outfit post...

My notification popped up this week from The Knot that the big day is in 10 Months! so I have been fitting in a few more runs in my week as well. So the outfits I am in all day are quickly thrown off in exchange for this

4 miles later, a quick shower and blowdry and these Twinkle Toes of mine are off to a glass of wine.
My days are blending together and my life is starting to resemble the Sugarland song Something More...
"There's gotta be something more
Gotta be more than this
I need a little less hard time
I need a little more bliss
I'm gonna take my chances
Taking a chance I might
Find what I'm looking for
There's gotta be something more"

My mind is always wandering off thinking of what I want to do in this next stage of my life..the question on my mind constantly is what do I want to be when I grow Up? ;)

Anyone else planning a different adventure in life?

Been a Cold week

With October came freeeezing (as far as I am concerned) weather! It is in the 60's, and far too cold for this Southern California girl....and her dog
Yes, I am evil

I am very much looking forward to the 80's we will get this weekend.

That's really all I've got for the moment. Kyna said it best, how whenever you look around you, it's so easy to feel everyone is perfect, with nothing but good things to say and feel, but we all have our flaws. Some of which for me have left me drawing a blank, and not able to get much out. My mind has been so consumed with work, and planning upcoming events that I haven't stopped and enjoyed what's going on in front of me. I have been focusing on everything I don't have, and wishing I could walk in other peoples shoes. But really, why would I want that...I've got some killer shoes (so to speak)
These boots are my absolute favorite, and always put me in a better mood :)

What are some things that help pull you out of a funk? need some ideas!

I will start with a mini date night with Mr. Matt tonight. "lucky" guy is getting dragged to Vickys secret with me so i can get a girlfriend a Bridal Shower gift, and then some dinner....yes, wine too ;)

Happy Friday Eve Everyone
