Tricks & Treats

How adorable is this owl costume?

I found this via A Beautiful Mess. Now if only I had pretty fabric. And sewing skills. And time. And willpower....

anyway I am trying to quickly put together a costume for me and the mister for tomorrow night. So far I think I have a pretty good idea, but I am in desperate need of a vintage yellow dress.

Sometimes Halloween is just too stressful!


p.s. how good am I? 3 blogging days in a row!

Style Crush: Tucker for Target

I am the only person I know (other than my mother) who loves a good sale as much as I do. Pair that with a brand that I have been drooling over for months and you have one happy camper. I adore the prints and styles of Tucker for Target, and when I found them in the clearance section of Target I was giddy! I snatched up some of these fantastic frocks below, including the floral print dress, the butterfly dress, and the gorgeous trench. The granny chic pencil skirts were a little out of my price range still, which was upsetting considering they would be PERFECT for my school placements next year.

Sigh....I think I'm in love.

When You Get Behind, It's Hard To Catch Up

So I was planning on doing a little picture post from my birthday events back when it was still kind of close to my birthday. But of course since I planned that things didn't work out. So here it is, 2 weeks late!

The celebrations began with my roommate Kelsey's birthday. We kidnapped her the night before to take her to Applebees and decided to have a little fun with it :)
I can't help but think this looks lie a paparazzi shot, only much weirder and scarier.
Applebees Arabian Nights.
For my birthday Noah took me to a huge corn maze. It was pretty fun because it had an exotic animal petting zoo (Kangaroos are so much grosser than Kanga and Roo), and the best part was a giant corn pool. It might not look like it, but that corn was almost to my waist!

Finally, for my other roommate Brittney and I's birthdays, we celebrated at Chino Latinos in Uptown Minneapolis. Noah came too :)

Now I have to prepare for boyfriendbear's birthday (on Halloween) this week! It really has felt like birthday madness lately, and I'm finding more and more people who were born in October. It really is a fantastic month to be alive for another year!

Let's see if I can set a record for myself and blog more than once a week. Yes?

October Playlist, Nearing November

I have been a very bad blogger lately, however I have very little time for things like that these days. Believe me, I would if I could.

Anyway, this is kind of a weird playlist. Some of the songs are those songs that are guilty pleasures. Does anyone else have those? Bands on your ipod that you're ashamed for other people to see, yet you refuse to get rid of them because you really do like them for some unknown reason. Yeah, well some of those are on here. I'll let you guess which ones.

Eventually I will probably maybe be back with some photos from the past birthday celebrations.

Au Revoir,

Happy October

This is my birthday week! I love love love the month of October, and this week in particular :)
However, this week is looking to be a loooong one filled with endless homework. So here are some nice things to look at while I wait for my birthday to come.

This cute as can be photo shoot done by A Beautiful Mess.

I adore this pillow. Planning on making one! Maybe even a Minnesota one for the mister :)

This is the cutest thumb print art I ever did see. I want this for my future classroom!

Indoor Clouds by Fine Little Day

I wish this were true.

This commercial is my favorite. Mostly for the song, but the rest is so cute as well.

Ahhh, I feel better.

XOXO, Ashley
