Weekend Update

Another fun weekend in the books!

Friday night I went to Maureen's Birthday party. This girl can bake, folks.
I mean, she put whiskey in her cupcakes. Mind. Blown.

 That's four Otterbein gals in one Chicago! #neverhappens

It was so much fun hanging out with friends from Ohio. Happy Birthday, Maureen!!

Saturday I was a busy bee. I cleaned the apartment, did all of the laundry, and put together my free Halloween costume, all before partying at Daniela's fun soiree.


I enjoyed being 50 Shades of Grey! Other party-goers got a little chuckle when they realized what I was. I luckily have a paint store in my neighborhood, so this took absolutely no time to put together. Since I went literal with my costume, rest assured that I counted 50 color cards in various hues and pinned 25 on the front and 25 on the back. Go big or go home, amIright?

The double-braided headband was a first for me. I saw a quick tutorial on Allie's blog and had to give it a whirl. It kept my bangs out of my face while I danced so I chalk that up to a successful 'do.

Sunday was nice and lazy, with Mass, brunch, and football (aka the best way to spend a Sunday)!

I also found out that I have over 100 GFC Followers now?!?! That's amazing! Thank you! There is a giveaway in the works to celebrate!

How was your weekend?? Did you participate in any Halloween activities?
