hApPy HaLLoWeEn!

I hope everyone had a happy Halloween!  Can you guess what each of us dressed up as?  Answers below...

Me: Katy Perry in the California Gurls music video (here)

Colin: Katy Perry's pink cloud in the California Gurls music video

Krista: Snooki from Jersey Shore

PS-Parents, those cigarettes are FAKE!  Don't let their perfect craftsmanship fool you.

Chroni(what?)cles of my trip to Phoenix (or at least this past weekend)

Chapter 1: Happy hour with friends

Chapter 2: "Homemade" cookies, dominos and Wii's version of DDR (my five-or-so-year-old competitor beat me!) with friends of the family

Chapter 3: State Fair festivities, including eating lots of fried things, petting lots of farm animals, and poking our heads through cardboard cutouts of cartoon characters every chance we got.  

Eating a fried spicy pickle

My brother-in-law's donut burger

Geometric print leotard:  Thrift store in Phoenix
High waisted blue pants:  American Apparel (borrowed from my sister)
Alligator belt:  Borrowed from my sister
Black cardigan:  Borrowed from my sister
Sunglasses:  Rose Bowl Flea Market

Chapter 4: Arizona Falls

This little man was sitting on top of one of the walls of the falls.  He's about 2 inches tall.

Phew!  I'm exhausted just recalling it all.  

Tonight Colin and I will be celebrating our neighbor's birthday with line dancing.  I've never done it before but I'm very excited to see if I've got the skills or not.  Judging from my moves while playing the Wii, I'm pretty sure no one will be begging to be my partner...

featured looK: ray oF SuNsHiNe

Trousers:  Secondhand store
Cardigan:  Inherited from grandfather
T shirt:  Local clothing store in Flagstaff
Belt:  H&M

Because I repeated an outfit today (see the look here), I decided to feature Jessica's outfit instead.  Well, let's face it, I would have photographed her outfit for everyone anyway!  I love these trousers on her.  They are so extraordinarily flattering.  

Today I shadowed at the high school and I'm pretty sure I've come to the conclusion that I don't have the passion for teaching that all of the teachers I have observed have.  I love sharing new information with people, but I'm not sure that I'd be as excited about teaching the components of the cell ten years later as I would be the first few years of teaching it...

On to the next possible career option!
