This Is Halloween from The Nightmare Before Christmas

Happy Halloween! I wore my costume on Saturday, and really don't have a reason to wear it today, so I decided to wear Halloween colors instead. We don't get trick or treaters in our apartment building either. This way I am acknowledging Halloween yet looking normal while Hubby and I go to lunch and run errands this afternoon. I love that he has half days on Wednesday!!!

Did you dress up for Halloween this year? Or go to a Halloween party? What did you go as?!

Fastest Girl In Town by Miranda Lambert

Well I think Sandy has come and gone here. It has been non stop raining the past few days and will continue through Friday, but last night's wind seems to be over. We were prepared for a power outage and our school district had a 2 hour delay this morning to make sure the buses and students were safe from any possible hurricane damage. Southern WV is being hit with snow, but luckily we don't live down there anymore! It is cold though, so I'm loving being able to wear layers!!!

Everything about this outfit is my favorite. I love this neon green shirt and I wanted to pair it with my grey boots, so the matching cardigan was a perfect choice to keep it warm. This is one of those outfits that I will probably wear the whole thing, as is, again. :)

Bad For Me by Megan and Liz

Saturday night we went to a Halloween party at Smoky Bones. Our friend is one of the bartenders there and it was a fun night. We met up with another couple and showed off our costume creativity. Here are some pictures from the evening and the final product of the Jack o' Lanterns we carved last night!

Hanging out with great friends

Love these girls!

Sis and I both carved bats in our pumpkins!

Yesterday we went to see The Perks of Being a Wallflower, visited a friend at Pitt, and carved pumpkins... all things that are done inside where its warm and dry. I think the worst of Sandy is going to affect us Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. Our biggest concern is flooding and losing power, so hopefully it doesn't get to bad. Stay warm, dry, and safe!!!

Hard to Love by Lee Brice

Our warm weather is over and its going to be cold and rainy for the next few days. Are you being affected by Sandy? We were supposed to get snow next week but the forecast has changed back to rain, so I'm a little happy about that. Its still October, I'm not ready for snow yet! Today's outfit is actually what I wore to school on Thursday. It was in the 80s and this outfit was perfect for it. I got compliments from some of my students and hubby too, so I think it was a winner!

Any suggestions for what to be for Halloween? We're going to a dress up party tonight and hubby, my sister, and I have no idea what to go as. We'll be figuring out costumes this afternoon.

Even If It Breaks Your Heart by Eli Young Band

I am writing this post from my lunch break subbing high school gym. I never know what to wear when subbing gym class because if I dress down I look like one if the students but I look stupid being dressed up for gym class. I decided I would wear jeans today when I realized that my white jeans would be a good compromise of relaxed and professional. I've also been waiting for the perfect time to wear my new chambray shirt and loved the combination with white pants. So I'm pretty happy with today's outfit choice.
Shirt: Old Navy / Jeans: Gap / Flats: H&M / Earrings: NY&Co.

Hope you have a great weekend! My sister is spending the weekend with us because it's her very short fall break. We have lots of fun planned :)

Cruise by Florida Georgia Line

One of my favorite things about my new iPhone is the blogger app. I am currently at school typing this blog post. No worries, the students aren't here yet. However when they do arrive we will be watching The Watcher in the Woods all day. Ah, the life of a substitute teacher :)
Shirt: Target / Jeans: American Eagle / Shoes: Clarks / Earrings: NY&Co.

I wore this shirt the other day under my Army sweatshirt. I really love it and the bright pink bird print. So I did a load of laundry the other day and decided to wear it again!

Did It For The Girl by Greg Bates

It has randomly warmed up this week to the 70s and may get to the 80s on Thursday. This fall really hasn't had a whole lot of my favorite temperature days in the 60s... its either the 50s or the 70s. I don't get it. So today I decided to wear these pants rolled up and pair it with this light and loose sweater so I don't get too hot. I really like these pants, especially the color, and plan to start wearing them more!
Sweater: Target / Pants: Delia's / Flats: Shoe Show / Earrings: NY&Co.

As they say in Georgia, stay cool! Who knew I'd be saying that at the end of October up north?

Hubby's Home!!!

He's home! Hubby is back from audition rotations and I am so glad he's done! Now we wait till mid December to find out where residency will be... nothing like waiting two months to find out where the next six years of your life will take place. Oh well, we liked both Augusta and Tacoma, so we're excited. After picking hubby up from the airport yesterday morning, I made pierogies for lunch, relaxed for most of the afternoon, then went up to Westminster for dinner with my parents and to see my sister's Jazz Band concert. It was a fun evening and a great concert!

I got this sweatshirt at Fort Gordon so I thought it was fitting to pick up my Army man in my Army sweatshirt. The combination of this sweatshirt and the waffle shirt underneath kept me really warm in the windy, chilly weather yesterday too. Hubby's back to cold weather... he's not in Georgia anymore!

Blown Away by Carrie Underwood

So I'm really shocked I didn't make a bigger deal out of it when it happened, but I got a new iPhone 4S two weeks ago! I've only had my LG Ally for a year, but I've had countless problems with the first generation droid that has almost no memory. I'm not putting down Droids, because hubby has one and my mom just got a new one too, and they both work great! Anyway, hubby had an available upgrade and still loves his current phone so he gave it to me and can use mine in June which is conveniently right before residency starts. So I'm beyond thrilled to have this new phone. I thought about getting the 5, however they were on backorder and when compared side by side there wasn't enough difference to spend an extra $100 for the newest one. Now I need application recommendations!!!

I love this jacket and am glad its cool enough to wear it! And purple is one of my favorite colors, so this outfit was an easy choice for running errands today. Hubby comes home tomorrow!!!! :)

Kitchen Adventures!

Its been awhile since I've posted some pictures of what I've been making in the kitchen. Well, since hubby's not home to cook for, I haven't done much of anything new or exciting. There's no reason not to put something in the crockpot and eat it for a few days, but I just haven't. I've had a lot of pasta and sandwiches that are pretty easy to make for one person. I'm excited to cook for two again! :)

Chili and biscuits with cream cheese

Pasta with marinara sauce topped with ranch dressing and cheese... I know ranch dressing is a weird topping but I loved it!!!

Amazing chicken and noodle creation from the crockpot and green beans (This was the dinner I made when hubby came home for 12 hours between bases)

Turkey sandwich with chips and cheese, yummy lunch!

Scrambled eggs and toast with honey

Hamburger soup, made by my grandma :)

Hubby has already put in a request for my mashed potatoes when he gets home this weekend :)

State of Grace by Taylor Swift

This is my last outfit from our trip to Augusta. I brought two pairs of shoes for this trip, my blue and green flats, so my outfits were created around them, hence multiple green and blue outfits with lots of white pieces. Back in Weirton its going to be in the 60s for the rest of the week, so this will be the last time I wear shorts till our Christmas vacation in Hawaii. 
Shirt: Abercrombie and Fitch / Shorts: Old Navy / Flats: H&M / Earrings: NY&Co.

Now its back to reality... tackling the to-do list and teaching dance tonight.
And great news!!! Hubby is coming home on Saturday instead of Sunday!!! :)

Catch My Breath by Kelly Clarkson

We are leaving Augusta today. Its been a great long weekend trip! We were successful in exploring the area and finding possible future housing. I'm thankful to my parents for making this trip happen and I'm glad my brother was able to meet up with us too! And this is the last week of hubby's audition rotations... he comes home Sunday!!!!! I can't wait to pick him up and keep him this time. 
Cardigan: Banana Republic / Tank: Old Navy / Jeans: American Eagle / Flats: H&M / Earrings: Etsy

I love this floral tank. It has so many colors in it that it goes with so many outfits. Since its warmer in Augusta, I had to bring this one with me :)

Come Wake Me Up by Rascal Flatts

Hello from Fort Gordon! Yesterday was spent mostly hanging out on base at their Oktoberfest and driving around to see the area. It's been great weather and fun to hang out with hubby, my parents, and brother. Not sure what our plan is today so if you have any recommendations for Augusta, GA, please let me know!
Tank: Old Navy / Capris: Abercrombie and Fitch / Flats: H&M / Scarf: American Eagle / Earrings: NY&Co.

I decided to be patriotic and carry a red purse with this blue and white outfit :)

Skyfall by Adele

We made it to Augusta! So far it's been very pretty and warmer temperatures. We went to PF Changs for dinner last night and then hubby came back with us to our hotel to hang out and watch the vice presidential debate... which put me to sleep. Today we plan to drive around to see more of the area. Tonight my brother arrives to spend the weekend with us. We'll be looking for BBQ and frozen yogurt :)
Shirt: Old Navy / Shorts: Old Navy / Flats: H&M / Earrings: Etsy

I love this baseball tee. It's comfortable and light which is perfect for the weather here. And still available at old navy!

Titanium by David Guetta and Sia

I'm all packed up and ready to go! I'm flying from Pittsburgh to DC to Augusta. And when we get there, Hubby will be joining us for dinner! I'm so glad he only has a little over a week left because I'm definitely ready for him to be home. However I look at this as getting me ready for his terribly long hours during residency, but he comes home everyday then, so its better than this.

I love this purple and mustard combination. Its perfect for fall :)
