Okay, first things first-- the GIVEAWAY.
I disconnected my internet last week because MediaCom accused me of downloading movies illegally. (I didn't do it.) I got frustrated and just told them to cancel it. Anyway, I'm very sorry for not posting the winner sooner!!

Chrissy, from Whimsical Poppysmic, please email me!!! Congrats!!

Everyone else, check out the link on the left of the page for the $10 off any purchase! Just make sure to use my discount code. 

In other news, Monday was Halloween, obviously, and I went as Flo from Progressive.

I had so much fun making the costume. Thrifting and Walmart really came through!! I even watched a tutorial on how to do her makeup... Ha.
Anthony went as Mayhem from All State, so we were cute, I guess you could say.

We went downtown the Saturday before, and everyone was yelling at me, constantly. It was a good yelling, like "Hey! It's Flo! I want to marry you!" Or, "Oh my gosh- that lady is annoying! Not you... just the character." Or, "FLOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!" 
All in all, it was a success.

On Halloween, I wore the costume for work. I won first prize in the costume contest. Whoop! We had a daycare come through our facility and trick-or-treat at the residents' doors, and one little boy looked up at me and said, "Ummm... I've seen you on TV." It was so cute!

OHMYLANTA, I have a hilarious story: 
So I'm in the Walgreens parking lot on Halloween, running an errand for work. I'm stopped in a line of cars waiting to get a spot. A lady BACKS INTO ME. I pull over into a parking spot and get out to look at the damage. The rest isn't important.
I really should get a discount, or at least a commercial deal. I'm so brilliant and apparently ALWAYS PREPARED FOR CAR ACCIDENTS ON HALLOWEEN.

I had loads of fun with my orange hair the Friday before, and I loved trying on all of the wigs. It was a blast. As usual, I wish that I could post photos of my oldies, but I can't. :(

In other news, I'm eating a pomegranate, and it is delicious.

That pomegranate picture is sooo cool! You totally looked like Flo...your so stinking pretty! I love it! The story about the lady asking you insurance questions totally made me chuckle. I heart you my fellow Cooking Buddy! Hearts, Janna Lynn

Gosh, I love Mayhem's lastest commercial where he is a blind spot.

That's a great costume combo, the two of you.

Also, I about died laughing hysterically imagining you writing down insurance information in your costume. Haha!
