Friday night Linds and I went to her friend's house and we just kind of stood around crowd watching, everyone was dancing and dressed up in actual costume which we were quite thankful for considering we were a little worried about showing up in our "not so conservative" costumes we purchased the day before.

Saturday night we had a small get together at our house, people came and went. All of our roommates have different groups of friends, of course it's always crazy to see how everyone will click and it's interesting to see how a drinking game, candy and saltine crackers can really bring a crowd together! Have you ever done the "Saltine Challenge"? ... embarrassing!

Flash back to Georgia!

Georgia Georgia
I wasn't "blogging" when I went to Georgia this summer, but I had a really good time so why not write about it? First off, I was extremely nervous because I was going to fly for the first time in a year, secondly it was June and I had never been to the South in the Summertime. I've heard nothing but sweaty miserable horror stories, but it was nothing of the sort! I went with Lindsay because her brother and sister-in-law live in Savannah, so we wanted to visit! I had never met them before and I happened to get my plane ticket late so my flight flew in first! That meant spending a WHOLE 5 hours with a family who never had even heard my voice, but of course... they were the sweetest people in the world! When my plane landed in Savannah, it was pouring rain and around 95 degrees outside! There were rocking chairs to sit on outside the airport, so I knew I was going to enjoy the wait.
When Ghari and Allie picked me up from the airport I got to meet baby Henry! I have not seen a cuter and more gleaming baby since! He immediately stunned me with his bright personality, talking and laughing. Ghari and I picked Linds up around 11:30 that night and they stayed up for a while catching up.

The next day we got up and went for a walk to the coffee shop, the funniest thing was the night before the streets were literally flooded from all the rain and we had to park kind of far away from the house. I remember thinking, GREAT... we are going to have to walk everywhere! Little did I know, I loved walking in Georgia and the rain had disappeared the next day. It's really flat in Savannah and there isn't anywhere that isn't beautiful. I was barely in a car that week because we ended up walking or riding our bikes almost everywhere, except for when we had Henry! We went to really good southern restaurants each night and during the day we wandered Savannah. The city was gorgeous and completely Victorian looking. Parks were in the middle of every street way, and there was cobblestone all over the place! We went on a ride on a ferry through the river, ate red rice and grits. I even experienced the flea market which was the coolest/hottest place I've been!

Our last night in Savannah we went out to the beach, we ate in this cool restaurant right on the ocean and afterward took our drinks outside and watched fireworks and took pictures. The next day happened to be fourth of July so there was a lot of life out in Georgia that weekend!
Henry was always the life of the party and we definitely didn't mind, he never fails to impress with his abilities to be the cutest baby alive! It was one of the best trips I could have been on this summer, I loved Georgia and I love the Marrs!

Everyone loves Meg Ryan!

Meg Ryan

could she be any sweeter, sassier or classier? She's absolutely lovely.
I can't think of a more perfect word for her then lovely. There isn't one movie she is in that doesn't have the most fitting music, usually (Louis Armstrong). Since the holidays are about to POP around the corner and I traditionally watch "Sleepless in Seattle" every year... I just felt like giving this post shout out to Meg.
Who is your favorite actress?

Personal Favorite!

I wear scarves with everything! LITERALLY, everything. This video just became my new favorite. The greatest scarf tutorial, the ultimate DIY!

Sneak Peak

These are a group of my favorite shoes from the Macy's shoe wall.

Selling shoes wasn't my first job at Macy's, I was working in the children s department. Shoe's is commissioned based and it's only woman's shoes which I like. This will probably get me in quite a bit of trouble but all of these shoes are worn around the stock room by me DAILY!
I am obsessed. The little floral sling back's are Jr's shoes, and I absolutely adore them.
I also bought the Giani Bernini booties in black and they are the most comfortable boot I own.

I am actually not much of a shoe girl, but I do own many pairs. People always say "I don't know how you work in this department, I would go broke!"
It's not true! We have really good sales, along with major discounts. If you want to order any shoes and want free shipping, you can call the Tacoma store... ask for ME! and I will get you the best deal :)

The brands above are Bandalino, Material girl, Born, Bare Traps, Giani Bernini, White Mountain and Marc Fischer!

I am now a "certified" shoe specialist so if you have questions about shoes, ask me!

Wrights Park

There is honestly nothing better then the last few weeks of October in Washington. We have so many colors in our trees it's incredible. These pictures were taken at Wrights Park, and the views aren't even fair.
I am going to "try" to start jogging there. We will see!

Almost Halloween!

Recently discovered Pumpkin pie truffles at SEE'S candies, they are absolutely to die for and since I am on a pumpkin flavored craze lately, it certainly hit the spot!

Pumpkin smoothies, pumpkin milkshakes, pumpkin cheesecake (trader joes) and pumpkin pies! Peerrrfecto!
