Happy Halloween

Yay, Halloween! I am loving the idea of parties the weekend before. After a Halloween costume party AND a pumpkin carving party last weekend, I already feel like we've celebrated Halloween and we're not even there yet!

Greek Goddess and Brando as... himself.
I tried to convince him to write in silver sharpie on his shirt, "I am coming as myself."
Oh, yes, we danced. And danced. And danced.
Brando did borrow my friend's boyfriend's costume from last year. He only wore the ostrich rider for about twenty minutes, though, because the machine on his rear end keeping the costume full of air was a little hard to sit on.
The end of the night, and the Burger King. He was awesome.
And on to... the pumpkin carving party! We went to Sweet Berry Farm first for our pumpkins, and did a giant maze where the field is in the shape of Texas (you can see the field ready to be seeded here).

Afterwards, we went to a friend's house and everybody carved all their pumpkins! Shawners and I had the weekend to ourselves as Brando and Justinb had gone camping. So we cuddled upstairs and watched a movie on the half a theatre movie size screen until the crowd (with their crazy huge knives they used for their pumpkin carving tools!!) cleared and then we carved ours with one other girl that was still doing an intricate design on her large pumpkin.
Shawner's pumpkin!
My pumpkin that was extremely difficult. It took all of five minutes!

Weekends of Fun

This last weekend was EXACTLY what I needed. Friends, good times, good memories, and a little bit of shopping, as well as going to see Whip It, which I highly recommend. I also recommend coming to see the roller derby in Austin, where the film was based, with me when their season opens again in January. The movie was killer, but it's even better in person!

A friend from school, M2, and I hit up the Round Rock outlets for some killer deals. I scored two Oakley jackets at Oakley similar to this one for $5, only one was solid black and one was solid white, and neither had the ribbing. This one is $70 on the website - yikes!! So perfect for school where they keep the classrooms FREEZING.
At GUESS I found two adorable pairs of earrings, one of them similar to these, only bigger and with black around the edges. The other pair were hoops with an opalescent appearance - perfect for summer. They look like you just picked shells up off the beach, but are also perfect for that winter outfit that needs just the right amount of winter white. $3.50 each!
At PacSun I found an adorable zebra print black and gray O'Neill cami - I heart O'Neill! - trimmed in black and with three buttons down the middle front, and a fun Lilu (my nickname : ) colorful purple, hot pink, black, and gray tank. As well as ripped jean shorts - yay next summer! All $5 a piece.

And that was the end of my not more than $30 shopping spree. I was so happy walking away from there with my pile of loot and most of my money!

Study, Sleep, Play

I had one good round of blog posts in there, but really I haven't done much since school has started, except for, well, what's in the title. This weekend though Brando and I made it out to the Hideout Theatre for Ka-Baam! Hilarious, and just what I needed to relax and actually not think about studying for once. Friday night I took off at 10:30pm as soon as Brando got home from a guy's night, and went to go see Couples Retreat with a girlfriend from school. More laughs, and a totally cute film. Vince Vaughn was not completely raunchy for once, and I loved his character. And his wife's character! I loved the way the couples all ended up in a totally different direction from what you expected at the beginning, and the way their relationships spawned new developments during therapy. Saturday was super deep clean day, somebody came to look at the house, then relax in super clean, decluttered house that has actually managed to stay clean since, then off to improv.

Sunday was study, study, study day which was perfect because tonight was girls night with tomato and bell pepper pizza, salad with red and yellow bell peppers, avocado and garlic cheese croutons, red wine, and Potbelly cookies. Oh, and, as always, Gossip Girl and The Hills (which the latter is pretty darn drama ridden this season and almost to the point where it's not worth watching). Random and yum!

Sorry for the ho-hum post. More fun and pictures soon! As soon as I have the time to create them, that is, muahahahaha.

Some fun "engagement" pictures we took in the meantime. Because, you know, being married almost nine years deserves that.
