purple rain

first of all, let me just say this: i spoke too soon about the curling my hair with a hair straightener thing... i was shown how to do it that night and it looked so easy i was like yayyy--i finally got this! then the next day i tried it myself. umm...yikes. i couldnt make consistent curls. every time the curl came out different looking or non-existant. obviously i need some more practice...

[random, cute jay-z picture to hold your interest]

second, josh thinks it's embarrassing to have reading material in the bathroom. he said it's like a frat boy, except everyone knows it's me because they're girl magazines. honestly, i don't really see the problem. apparently it irks him, and he even said, "i dont know how i've let this go on so long..." too bad josh, i'm not moving them unless i'm switching them out for new material. thats how i roll.

third, it is pouring tonight, and so after i went to the grocery store and whatnot, i decided to change into some cute [dry] clothes. i went shopping today with one of my bffs (hi shannon!) and we hit up nordstrom rack (love!!!). one of the awesome things i bought was..... JEGGINGS! i'm not going to lie, when i first heard of jeggings i was a little confused. i just thought they referred to stretchy skinny jeans, which i've been rockin for years, along with most of you. so i was like *what is the big deal!?* today is honestly the first day i've understood jeggings. i saw them and i knew it was a match made in heaven. i don't care what any of you jeggings-haters think, i fell in love. so tonight i paired them with some purple report boots (also new from nordstrom rack), a gray tank top, and a purple plaid flannel vans shirt. oh, and i was eating a grape blow pop. what can i say, i love the color purple!!

it was hard to hold my foot up so i put it on the tv stand...

and yes, football is on. could you expect anything less from my husband on a saturday?
ps: my hurr isnt short, its just crazy in a messed up bun. dont judge.
pps: josh likes to get his jeans in my pictures. apparently they were jealous of all the attention my jeggings were getting...

and fourth, happy halloween everyone!! i wish we got trick-or-treaters, because i think they're cute, but i guess that's what you get when you live in a college town and close to campus. i hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

Umm, I'm guilty to wear jeggings a lot on my off days lately. Haha they're just so comfy!

ok, that's it. i'm trying on jeggings next time i'm at the mall. everyone i read loves them!

apparently we got a TON of trick or treaters. i missed them, sadly. (stupid cross country flights...) we had almost no candy left!

which, i guess in hindsight, could also mean the hubbers chowed down an awful lot last night.... hmmmm
