Look at me, I'm Sandra Dee

Halloween. oh, what a wonderful holiday.

I don't remember ever being more excited about Halloween than I am now! Usually I'm scrambling to find a costume and this year, THIS YEAR! is different. While we were in San Diego in August, M and I were watching Grease and after seeing this, I just knew.

How hott is Olivia Newton John!? Hott, with two T's.
So I will do my best to mirror her sass in this portion of the movie, while still maintaining her natural grace and elegance.
(...how does she do that?!)
No one can do her justice, but I am SO excited to try.
And who doesn't love an excuse for bright red lips and huge curly hair, not to mention the leather and heels. It's sexy without being trashy, and I don't have to worry about freezing my butt off in wonderful Wisconsin.
Tell me about it, stud.
I can't wait!!

Speak Now

I drank the kool-aid.
Among a million other girls, I downloaded the new Taylor Swift CD, Speak Now. I've generally been a Taylor fan from the very beginning - she's kind of just contagious, so I've been anxious to see what she has to share next. And she definitely shared it all.
You have to admire her boldness and slight lack of filter for some of these songs. She's a brave girl for wearing her heart, and every thought on her sleeve, but part of me felt like she should have sent these songs, more-so personal messages, privately through the mail - they are just that specific and intimate.
At first I got annoyed and thought it was immature for her to throw her relationships out to the public and bash half of Hollywood. I was even able to make a game out of listening and guessing which celebrity she was referring to. But I must admit that these songs are growing on me, as I listen to the album for the third time, haha. Music always amazes me that way!

Favorites: Mine, Sparks Fly, Speak Now, Dear John, Mean ...ok I guess I really like this... :)

And no need to guess which celebrities she's singing about, she'll tell you all about it in this interview!

It was one of those weekends that just screamed fall. Cold and rainy with spooky haze that's perfect for October.
I'm thankful for the crisp, sunny day's we've been having, but it was difficult to get in the scary Halloween mood with such beautiful weather! I was craving a lazy weekend in front of the fire place, elbow deep in a pumpkin and a haunted house to follow.
It's been years since I've carved a pumpkin! So in between naps and watching football our pumpkin hunt began.
Needless to say I was beyond excited. Michael lovingly obliged.
So here are our masterpieces, complete with our sleepy faces and fall-cozy attire.

Yay Pumpkins!
