Lovefoot by The Cardigans

Its a busy day here for the hubby and I. We went to church this morning, out to lunch, home for a bit to clean up and change, getting some groceries, candy, and pumpkins, going to a "Trunk or Treat," then going to a friend's house to carve pumpkins and make caramel apples. And starting at 4, trying to keep up with how the Bills are playing vs the Redskins today in Toronto. Here's what I wore to church this morning: 
Cardigan: Peebles / Pants: Macy's / Heels: Bandolino / Earrings: American Eagle

Its a busy but a really fun fall day! Let's Go Buffalo!!!!

Pumped Up Kicks by Foster The People

Last night was a successful halloween party, because one of my friends and I each won a $100 gift card to Smoky Bones! Another friend is a bartender there and she told us to dress up and come out, and we were the only ones who got the memo about dressing up, so we won! Also, if you are a Cardinals fan, congratulations on winning the world series!

Sadly, the hubby and I went to a funeral today. It was for the father of a college friend of ours. We had never met him personally, but went to support our friend who is one of the kindest, patient, supporting friends you could ever have. I found a skirt at H&M this week that is navy blue with black flowers on it and thought it would be perfect with a black sweater to wear to the funeral. The picture of the outfit is just dark, so I took an upclose one of the skirt for the detail:

Sweater: Gap / Skirt w/ belt: H&M / Tights: Danskin / Heels: Bandolino / Earrings: Stella and Dot / Ring: H&M

Here's up close of the skirt/belt/tucked in sweater. Its a high wasted skirt... and I washed it to get the wrinkles out, but that didn't seem to work... I guess that means I really need to find my iron.

Well hubby and I are having a relaxing evening tonight. Tomorrow we will be pumpkin carving and candy/caramel apple making!

Stay With You by Goo Goo Dolls

I subbed for high school math today. We watched the movie Stand and Deliver three times, so its a good thing I like an inspiring movie about awesome teachers and students who succeed. Now I'm relaxing for a bit, getting things ready, then going to a halloween party tonight. You can see my costume on Monday for Halloween :) Here's what I wore to school today.... including one of my favorite winter jackets!!!

Top: Old Navy / Pants: JCPenney / Shoes: Bandolino / Earrings: H&M / Necklace: Stella and Dot / Watch: American Eagle / Ring: H&M

Coat: Peebles

I love the houndstooth pattern! The coat has cream, black, brown, and grey in it, so it matches everything too!

Hubby comes home tonight too!!!! :D

Meet Virginia by Train

It has been a busy day for me today. I ran to the store, started laundry, and am working on a baby shower gift project and have a few other things to get to tonight like paying bills and painting my nails. I don't have an outfit for you today due to a hectic laundry day (fighting for washers and dryers with the other tenants of our apartment building), but I do have dinner! Since I'm cooking for myself this week, it hasn't been fancy things. Today's dinner is actually a Lean Cuisine frozen meal, but I added some of my own sides and put it on a nice plate, to disguise it as a homemade meal.
Doesn't it look yummy? Its butternut squash ravioli with veggies. Not pictured: applesauce and dessert

I plan to show you the baby shower gift I'm working on, but not till the shower :)

City On Down by O.A.R.

Hey there! I took the day off yesterday since I never got dressed and reorganized my closet instead. Its looking much better... but I still have more to do. Today I needed to get out of the apartment so I went to the bank and walked around the mall for awhile, then was invited to a friend's for lasagna and we ended up chatting for quite some time. So here's what I wore today :)

Top: Peebles / Jeans: American Eagle / Flats: Jessica Simpson / Scarf: American Eagle / Earrings: Stella and Dot

Up close of my pattern mixing... paisley with stripes but in the same color scheme.

The Show Goes On by Lupe Fiasco

I am back from a whirlwind 24 hours of seeing lots of family members and dropping off hubby for his rotation. We saw his mom and stepdad, his dad and stepmom, his step brother. Today after I left Cleveland, I met up with my dad and sister for dinner and unloaded the car at Westminster... and finished the night skyping with my mom while we watched The Sing Off and she waited for my dad to come back from WC. It was an enjoyable two days... even with all the problems I've been having with my new phone. Anyone have a LG Ally that has problems?

Sweater: Gap / Jeans: Hollister / Shoes: Shoe Show / Earrings: Walmart

So happy that the Yellowjackets made it on to next week!!!! :)

The More I See You by Michael Buble

The hubby and I are off to Cleveland today. He's staying with his family for this month's rotation of family med II. They have to set it up on their own, and he will be with a family friend. I'm going to drive up with him and hang out with his family today and tomorrow, then head back by myself. Hopefully I'll be working a lot and coming up with lots of things to occupy my time or I may driving back and forth.

Hope you had a great weekend!

Hollaback Girl by Gwen Stefani

Tonight hubby and I are going with some friends to a local high school football game. The stadium holds  something like 18,000 people and they are playing their biggest rival, so it will be packed. Its also a "red out" game, so I went through my closet trying to find the warmest red things I own. I was really excited when I realized my peacoat is red, especially because the high today is 45 degrees.

Peacoat: J. Crew / Sweater: Peebles / Jeans: Hollister / Shoes: American Eagle / Earrings: Walmart

Lets Go Big Red!

There She Goes by Cranberries

It is a cozy sweater and boots kind of day since it is currently a brisk 47 degrees outside. I am also making tomato tortellini soup for dinner! This is what fall is all about... now we just need to get some pumpkins to carve and pick some apples! That's going to happen either this weekend or next. :)

Here's the tomato tortellini soup and french bread

Happy Thursday!
