Me Things & Halloween Weekend Prep

29 Oct

Confession: today’s post is going to be cut short on purpose because I am going to take this afternoon solely for ME; that’s right a whole segment of my day dedicated to me and only me. I realized I do spend a lot of time with myself (well with me and my good ol’ pink mac), but I don’t really spend time on myself, and today I’m going to make that change.

1. I’m going to get a pedicure. I don’t think I’ve gotten a real pedicure in MONTHS, months I tell you! I contemplated saving the $20, $25 and doing it myself. Then I realized, whenever I give myself a pedi it comes out ugly, and I deserve something pretty. After all, it’s Halloween weekend, and I’m being Waldo and well, Waldo needs hot red toes. 

2. Speaking of Waldo, I need to finish up my costume. So I must take a trip to CVS to purchase a throw-away camera. I’m SUPER excited to snap shops all night long, and not know what they’ll look like until I get them developed. (Remember those good ol’ days?) Waldo needs to go all out with tourist supplies, so he’s going to have a camera, binoculars, fanny pack, water bottle, etc. etc. Can you think of any other must-haves?

3. Since we have friends coming up to visit us this Halloween, I want to ensure my guests have the most fabulous time! Hence I’m going to make fabulous cocktails and snacks, so there must be a trip to the supermarket somewhere crammed into this afternoon as well. I’m thinking orange and black jello shots, some itty-bitty finger foods and a few tasty desserts. I will let you know what I end up preparing! 

4. I’m also running super low on groceries. Seriously, the only thing left in my drawer is a few eggs and half a bag of lettuce. And if any of you know me well, you know I love my Trader Joe’s. I get so excited like a little kid on Christmas every time I walk in that place. Really, I think I could live there! The people are just so damn friendly, the food is tasty, and the prices are unreal! I will have to go on a Trader Joe’s adventure sometime today to stock up ‘n’ explore. 

5. I’ve been overdue for a super sweaty gym workout, so early this evening will be perfect for that. I’m thinking a solid 45-minutes of cardio intervals intermixed with some arms/shoulder weights. Can’t wait to sweat it out and feel the burn. I also can’t wait ’til my Core Fusion: Body Sculpt DVD arrives. Hurry up, UPS! 

And just for fun, take a look at some of my old Halloween costumes…

Last year I was a candy heart

Senior year in college I was an orange crayon…

Junior year I skipped out on Halloween (oops)…

Sophomore year I was yoshi from Mario Kart…

Freshman year I don’t know what the hell I was thinking (nor what I was)…

Happy Friday and Halloween weekend! XoXo
