Oh hey, sailor.

My friday night was all fun and games until a guy dressed in a Katy Perry costume ( a blue wig and two birthday hats as a bra) started giving me sass.

He said, "What are you dressed as?"
I said, "I am a sailor"
He said, "Sailors don't wear red"
I said, "Katy Perry wears cupcakes as her bras"
He said, "You look like a Krispy Kreme worker"

....uuuuhhhhhhhhhhh.  One, I can't think fast enough to even respond at this point because I am in such disbelief and two.. I clearly had an anchor on my hat which means I am obviously a sailor..  People these days.

One of those weeks.

It's just been one of those weeks.

You know, the week that you...

  • lose everything.
  • blink and your day is gone.
  • Say: "Holyyyy it's already 5 o'clock?" every single night.
  • were doing stuff all day, yet nothing seems to have gotten accomplished.

Well, just one more day of THAT week.  Once tomorrow hits, I'll be a free woman.  Then all the Halloween celebrations will begin.  Two costumes, and one carefree weekend.  Bring it on.

Pumpkin Patch

The best time of the year: choosing pumpkins from a pumpkin patch, especially when the one you love flies into town and gets to hold your hand through the whole thing.

Things you do for photography class.

Blogging can be very deceiving.  Some pictures in blogs appear to be glamorous when the moment itself is the furthest thing from glamour.  An example of that is that picture above.  It looks like I'm having a peaceful, relaxing moment just enjoying the tire swing.  In real world (not blog world), if this picture was taken from the opposite angle, it would show that there was a big fat "Why in the world did I do this" expression on my face.

Oh yeah, kind of like this one..

How in the world do kids ride on tire swings these days? Better question, how did I survive elementary school? This one minute ride just about killed me.

As of late.

1. Sewing class got a little crazy.  Taking measurements was taken to a whole new level when our teacher made us change into tights and leotards.. welcome to college sewing. Of course we had to act like ballerinas.

2. Kilee and Tessa danced at the Mr. USU pageant and they did an amazing job. I love watching dance. Definitely should have been a dancer..

3. Once again I tried to like tea (peach tea this time), and once again I hated it.  I don't know why I always try, but I do.  It just seems so fitting for an art student to be drinking a tea with fancy fruits floating around in it.  I just have to face the fact I have the taste buds of an eight year old.

4.  Halloween shopping already.  Favorite. Holiday. EVER.

5.  Shoulder cramp at Chili's with the roommates. If you thought a shoulder cramp was impossible, I am living proof that it is indeed very, very possible.  Oh, and that blue tint on the top of my hair, that was from the homecoming chalk dance from the night before.. Got lots of stares.

The breakdown of a stumble.

Shirt: Forever 21
Necklace: Target
Pants: H&M
Shoes: Target
Purse: Coach

You know those awkward stumbles you do while wearing heels or wedges.  That little trip that you know is bound to happen at least once that day.  That scary few seconds where after you look around laughing to see if anyone saw you, and no one did, so you end up laughing by yourself. (Then you look around to see if anyone saw you laughing by yourself.)  Okay, well we've all been there.

Lucky for you readers I captured the anatomy of a stumble on camera.  I am going to break this down into the four basic phases we all go through.

  1. Distraction.  Oh hi foot that is pointed directly up to the sky with your heel digging into the uneven grass. Yes, this is will cause some turbulance and yes, this will affect your pride in the next few minutes.
  2. Pure panic.  That moment you realize you could be down down, and going down hard.  That moment you look for something.. in fact anything to grab to help you stay on your feet.
  3. The lunge.  Okay yes, you caught yourself from your body full-on hitting the floor, but you still look like a fool.
  4. Playin' it cool.  The forced laughter kicks in and the search begins for any eyes that make contact with yours.  The realization that you are all by yourself laughing also kicks in.

Fake Glasses

Shirt: H&M
Necklace: Urban Outfitters
Pants: Forever 21
Shoes: Steve Madden
Purse: Coach

Since high school, I have had fake glasses slowly collecting dust, just waiting to be worn.  I think I try them on with every outfit I ever wear, but I never have the you-know-what's to.  So today is the big day, it's those glasses' big debt.  Here it is.
