Bonus Post: Halloween

Hey everyone and Happy Halloween!

On Thursday my classmates and I decided to dress up for Halloween! This was a last minute decision (we decided to do it on Tuesday) but it turned out really well overall! 

We decided to to the Wizard of Oz. I ended up being Dorothy. :) 

Here's some pictures from the day:

My Dorothy costume (sans Toto). Tip: If you ever need ruby slippers, buy a pair of cheap flats (any color) spray paint, and glitter. Spray the shoes, apply the glitter, and let them sit out overnight. Way cheaper than buying new shoes. :) 

Glinda, Dorothy, and the Wicked Witch (Fun facts: my mom actually DIY'ed the Glinda crown for a costume a few years ago and Whitney (the Wicked Witch) DIY'd her skirt.)

The gang's all here: Dorothy, Glinda, the Cowardly Lion, and the Wicked Witch of the West or me, Brittany, Kaitlyn, and Whitney

The two witches (Brittany and Whitney)


Kaitlyn the Cowardly Lion


My favorite - the Wicked Witch trying to steal the ruby slippers

The day was a lot of fun and our teachers loved it! There's only five people in my classes (including me) so all of us dressed up but one (see Brantley in the background above haha) but he took a lot of our photos so it all worked out! :)

Also, Halloween means pumpkin carving! I have a tradition of carving a Disney pumpkin every year, and this year was no different. I knew it would be hard to top my Tinker Bell pumpkin last year, but I gave it a shot and decided to carve a Tangled pumpkin (specifically the lantern scene - literally my favorite movie scene of all time):




I'm really happy with how it turned out! It may be my new favorite.

Plus, here's my mom's Cheshire Cat pumpkin:


Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, and it even though it stormed it was still a good one in the end! Hope everyone else has had a great Halloween!

Today's outfit is pretty simple. It stormed all day (hence why my hair is up) and I was not feeling all that great either. The red sweater is for Red Ribbon Week.

Couple of updates!

Hey everyone!

A few things:

It's my fall break (woohoo!), so no posts for the week! 

Next, you might have noticed that I only posted twice last week. I've jumped on the casual Friday bandwagon and now I've been wearing my placement school's T-shirt instead of my usual outfits. 

That means for now that I'm going down to only two posts a week (Monday and Wednesday), but if I wear a dressier outfit on a Friday I'll post it. 

At least that's the plan for now. 

Anyway, hope you all have a great week and enjoy the wonderful October weather! :)

Happy Monday! Goodness it rained all night last night and it was still dark and gloomy this morning (hence the inside photos today). It actually flooded in several parts of Mobile (including my college campus) but fortunately where I was live was not so severely affected. Keep those affected in your thoughts and prayers please. :)

Happy Saturday! I know I'm a day late, but here is my outfit from yesterday. I actually had class yesterday, but we had to present a lesson in class so I still needed to dress as a teacher.

September 11

Happy Friday, everyone! I know it was only a four-day week, but I'm still so grateful it's the weekend. This time of year there's a lot to get done for sure!

Of course, I can't publish this without mentioning 9/11. All elementary school children today were born years later but I can still remember that day clearly. I was in second grade and I remember seeing the fear on my teachers' faces that I'd never seen before. I remember my P.E. teacher trying to calmly explain to us what was going on, and we were scared as well. But I also remember how our country came together that day.

Today we remember and pay our respects to everyone involved in that day, and we teach the importance of that day to the future generations in the hopes for a better tomorrow.

September 4

Happy Friday, everyone! Meet me in my "my eyes are too watery to wear contacts so I must wear glasses" look.

I'm still getting over this cold, but I know I'm at the end of it now. I love kindergarten, but it takes a lot of energy (which makes it even harder when I don't feel good), so I'm looking forward to this 3-day weekend! Yay!


Today's Outfit



Top from Cato's 
Cardigan from Old Navy

This is one my summer-to-fall transition outfits. Summery pants paired with a fall-colored top. A cardigan because sometimes my school likes to pretend it's the North Pole.
