Happy Halloween from Mickey and Pluto

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween from Mickey and Pluto

Surprise, surprise I was Mickey Mouse!

If my printer didn't randomly decide to become possessed and stop working, I would have scanned the picture from when I was Mickey when I was 3 or 4. Things do not change.

Work was so much fun today, we were all in costume! I had a blast taking pictures with everyone. Mom and I are legit the Party Planning Committee (The Office reference); we made Halloween goodie bags for everyone. 

And of course I made a cake. I have always wanted to make the 'Jack-o-lantern' cake that is on Pillsbury's website. Unfortunately it came out a little Frumpy. First off, it is really suppose to be a double layer bundt cake, but I thought that would be too much cake for our small office. Some ghosts must have been haunting my kitchen that night because I was not doing too well. In the end, it tasted absolutely amazing. It was a chocolate sour cream bundt cake with what was suppose to be a cookie dough filling turned into some brownie like chocolate chip cookie baked on top. Happy accidents in the kitchen are the best accidents.

Mom was an evil fairy. And left glitter all over the place.

Between college and past storms and everything this was pretty much my first real Halloween in about 5 years. I'm so happy it was such a fun one! Mom started thinking about next year's costume already. That's nothing new for me so I'm trying to figure out how soon I can get to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party!

Happy Halloween!

If feels like a Disney day

Sweater - Forever 21 / Skirt - MileyMax / Socks - eBay / Shoes - eBay / Purse - Dooney & Bourke

LOL Who am I kidding? EVERY DAY feels like a Disney day! No but really, I think about Disney all day. every day. 75 days to go! 

Two Saturday's in a row I decided to wear a skirt, high socks, and boots; no one's mad. It was pretty chilly out this morning while I was shooting these. Made me think about which fall/winter activity I dislike more...winter blogging or winter running...

I guess winter blogging because today I signed up for the NYCRuns Central Park Marathon! Target had a bunch of my running gear stuff on sale today so I grabbed several winter pieces. I think I'm good to go for my frozen tundra running.

My baking schedule is off a bit, so I made my Halloween cookies and cream cupcakes this week. Delicious!

OOTD 10.19.13

Blazer - Material Girl / Tank - Forever 21 / Necklace - Bebe / Skirt - Charlotte Russe / Socks - Wet Seal / Shoes - Payless / Purse - eBay

I tried on almost every jacket or sweater I own this morning with this outfit and nothing looked good; I guess everything was too long. A blazer with this wasn't exactly the look or feel I was going for but I liked the way the outfit turned out. I'm having fun with boots and high socks recently. 

I got the one last piece I needed for my Halloween costume today and then I worked on one of mom's pieces last night so we are all finished. 

And I've been working on this cheesecake for a week now.

This week I finally got my Magical Ribbons I ordered!

some black and white and red

Top - Wet Seal / Vest - H&M / Leggings - eBay / Shoes - Toms / Purse - eBay / Hat - eBay

I don't even remember the last time I had my purse in my blog posts. 

We spent the day out gathering all sorts of Halloween goodies for the office. I also picked up the last few items I needed for my costume. The weather was kind of weird today, it was so perfect and fall like in the morning but then I was almost dying of heat by the afternoon. It's almost like I still need shorts but I may or may not have started packing (them) for Disney today ;) 

I got a 7.2 mile run once we got home and after we had Carvel and it felt amazing because it felt like I haven't done that in forever lol
