All Hallows’ Eve

Happy Halloween! Here are a few snapshots that I took at the Halloween party we threw over the weekend. I was really bad at taking out my camera, partly because I was busy playing hostess and partly because things were a bit hectic and I was worried that something might happen to it! Regardless, I did manage to snap a few pictures that night and the rest of my time was spent chatting, imbibing, and eating way too many pieces of candy. Can you guess what my costume is?

Here are a few wedding dress ideas that I’ve gathered so far. I’m looking for something on the longer side, preferable a midi or maxi length dress. Since the wedding is taking place on a beach in Mexico, I feel like I should go for something fun and colorful. Right now I like these dresses, but I’m not ready to take the plunge on any of these quite yet!

Tell me: What do you think of these picks?

Did you guys have a good weekend? My entire weekend was taken over by the Halloween party (hence no new post yesterday), but I’m back today with a new set of goals for the week. I did pretty well with last weeks wishes since most of them were Halloween-related. I would say the party was generally a success and I liked the way my costume turned out (a post on that coming later this week).

This week I want to…

– start a new book. The last book I read was pretty good, but also a bit dense, so now I’m in the mood for something a little lighter. My book club is meeting this week, which I’m excited about. We’re taking turns selecting the book we read and it’s my turn next. I already know what I’m picking, now I just have to actually buy the book!

– shop around for a dress for the wedding. I haven’t been to a wedding since I was a kid and I’ve never really been to the wedding of someone I know well, so you could say that my knowledge of weddings in general is pretty limited. I’ve asked about what I should wear and now I just need to find something appropriate in the next 7-10 days that won’t break the bank. If you have any ideas on where I should look, I’m all ears. Eeesh, shopping on a deadline is hard- wish me luck!

– try something new with my hair. I’m often rushing in the mornings and I don’t usually take the time to do anything with my hair other than straighten my bangs. It’s always fun to switch things up though, so I want to try something else. I’ve got a few ideas- nothing complicated, just a hairstyle that at least looks a little different from the usual.

Tell me: What are your goals for this week?

Vamos a México

Vamos-a-Mexico

That’s right guys, I’m going to Mexico! To say that I’m excited for this trip is an understatement. I’ve been talking about it and thinking about it since the beginning of this year and now it’s hard to believe that it’s just right around the corner. Exactly two weeks from today I will be hopping on a plane and making my way to Mexico for my best friend’s brother’s wedding. I love my best friend and her family (they’re like a second family to me) and I’m so thrilled that I get to be there on this special day. I haven’t seen my best friend yet this year and to put the icing on the cake, the wedding happens to fall on my birthday weekend. So in summary: I’ll be in Mexico, with my best friend, on my birthday, attending what is sure to be a beautiful wedding. Just typing out that sentence has put a huge grin on my face! Pinch me now, I’m feeling like such a lucky girl.

Tell me: Do you have any trips planned before the end of the year?
