The Perfect Day for Pho

Last week Alex and I met up for pho at this small restaurant in my neighborhood, the East Village.  Even though the light was quickly fading, we managed to snap some pictures at a pretty church/little park in the area.

Also, Happy Halloween everyone! Over the weekend, I participated in some Halloween festivities with my friends.  I ended up recycling a costume from years past since I didn’t have time to make anything new.  I had a great time goofing around with my friends and it’s always fun to see what everyone dresses up as!

Tell me: What are you dressing up as this year?
Also, if you want to hear me ramble on a bit, go check out my vlog from last week =)

  13. oh, man. there are few things in this world i love more than pho. i was just having a conversation with someone last week on how great it would be to have a 24 hour pho place within walking distance of my house. it’s a cure all food and so delicious!

    you look fantastic in these photos. i went as a mouse this year. not the most creative costume, but i was pleased. :)

  26. What an adorable outfit, I love that bag, it is so gorgeous! I love the light and location where you took the pictures as well, some churches are so ridiculously pretty. I didn’t actually dress up this year, I came up with a bunch of ideas and had a low-key Halloween so decided not to dress up.
