Work Flowers

One of the perks of my job is that my boss loves fresh flowers. So every Monday I head to the store to pick up flowers for his house, office and my office.

Sneak Peak: Abandoned House

Abandoned HouseAbandoned House
Sorry for the two month blog absence, things have been a little crazy for me, I have a new job working as an assistant at a real estate company which is what led me to this lovely old abandoned house. This house was built in 1862 and boy is it amazing. The pictures above are of the kitchen. Sadly this house will be destroyed once the property is bought so I have been sneaking in and taking pictures and rummaging through what was left behind. Every time I go the sun seems to disappear, so this is just a sneak peak of what's inside. Im hoping to get a good round of pictures to show you guys how neat this house really is.

As of Late

Well its already well into November and here I am posting pictures of my Halloween costume. Well better late than never right? I was a cat for Halloween and I decided to try to make ears out of my hair, not the most easy thing to do but I really liked how they turned out, and I think that if I did them again I think I would spread them apart more.

Over the weekend I ended up going to the DC big flea and found the most amazing 20s hat of my dreams. It was a hundred bucks so I didn't get it but I did snap a few pics of it for memory. I also got the sellers card so if one day and suddenly have a hundred extra bucks lying around, I can get it (if she still has it).

Last but not least the best part of my week! Yesterday my boyfriend and I went to Richmond, Va to see Sufjan Stevens and boy was it amazing! If only you know all the crazy events that led up to me going to this show, I didn't think I was going to be able to go but thankfully I did. Might I also add that Mr. Stevens is quite the fox.

On Tuesday My boyfriend and I decided to go to the National Harbor. Its not a very exciting place so we didn't end up staying long but I did go to a peeps store (didn't know they existed). We just went in to see what it was all about, and they had a huge three foot stuffed peep for about 400 bucks . Im not sure who would actually by that but you never know! They also had a Cakelove so we decided to see if that had any vegan options and they did but they where the worst cupcakes I have ever had, however the icing wasn't so bad! I'm sure there regular kind are better! After that we went to lunch in Arlington and hit up a vintage shop that was close by that I had never been too. It had some great stuff and I came home with 3 great dresses so all in all it was a good day!

I really wanted to go to pick them out of a pumpkin patch but they are only open on Saturdays, and Sundays, and well I work both days so I was stuck with one of those side-of-the-road deals. My boyfriend and I both found pumpkins and carved them that night now I fell ready for Halloween! Tonight and tomorrow I'm going to a party so I cant wait to get all dressed up! I hope everyone is have a great Fall/Halloween season. Stay tuned for pictures of my Halloween costume, the best part is I get to dress up at work!!
