This Weekend...

I was starting to get really excited about Halloween and in my head I had jam packed this weekend with Halloween-y activities... Pumpkin carving (of course), making these cute mummy cupcake my mother-in-law found, making pumpkin whoopie pies, putting the finishing touches (or in my case, starting to make) costumes, etc.  Except that now, we are supposed to get 6-10 inches of snow, so perhaps I will be having snow ball fights instead.  Pics of all of our Halloween themed projects to follow... have a great weekend!

5 Random Things for Wednesday -- The "I don't get it" edition

1.  Mustaches -- Not the kind made of facial hair the other kind.  The kind that everyone seems to be obsessed with.  The ones that are showing up on mugs, necklaces, on sticks to be held up in photos... I don't really get it.
2.  Open Toe Boots -- boots keep your feet warm, open toes keep your feet cool... "One cannot exist while the other lives"
3. Rubber Rain Boots on Adults -- seriously... they are plastic people.  Adults should not wear plastic shoes.  The end!
4.   Quidditch Leagues -- Yes, people get together on the weekends and run around with brooms clamped between their thighs and try to throw soccer balls through hula hoops in sticks.  Does not compute!!!!
5.  This Obsession with Candy Corn -- Sure, its cute.  Sure you can only get it one time of year, but everywhere I turn everything is candy corn themed.  Fudge, waffles, cupcakes, crafts, costumes, socks, it going on and on.  I don't have anything again candy corn, but in the battle of best candy, candy corn hardly enters the competition.

It is a Michael Kors that I got for a great proce (like 75% off the retail price).  It is a big bag.  I like a big bag.  For some reason I feel the need to schlep a lot of stuff with me where ever I go.  Today I had to completely empty the contents of my purse all over my desk at work in order to find something.  So, since it was out there anyway, I thought I would tell ya'll what I carry around with me every day.
