halloween girlies

A couple quick sketches of two of my very good friends - Jackie and Heidi, and then myself, in our Halloween costumes from this weekend. :) I celebrated up in Milwaukee and a marvelous time was had by all!  Although, there may have been a few mishaps... Heidi, I hope your knee is healing up. ;)

My 1950s getup came together quite nicely I must say, considering I didn't give my "faux bangs" a test run beforehand (I actually have bangs, but surprisingly they made it more tricky to roll the hair... go figure).  I also made my very first piece of clothing ever: a circle skirt! I ADORE it - it is so much fun to wear, petticoat and all!

happy weekend!

Some highlights from a happy weekend! :D  The only thing that didn't make it as awesome as it could have been was me forgetting to watch The Walking Dead, which I managed to do once again... *sigh*

CHICAGO COLOR RUN!

I successfully completed my very first 5K this weekend in Chi-town! WOOHOO!  Cannot wait for it to come to Milwaukee next year.  Declared to be "the happiest 5K on the planet" - I would say the Color Run most definitely lives up to its bold affirmation.  We all had a BLAST!  Besides the part where I got blue powder blasted directly into my eyeball... But other than that - it was just amazingly good fun. :3

creature feature friday!

bovid x edmontosaurus?  Gosh, I have no idea - but something along those lines.  We'll just call him "big, beefy ruminant with funky nasal air sac"...

teeny tiny!

I had the pleasure of spending part of my weekend in the presence of an absolutely ADORABLE teeny, tiny puppy :3  ERMAHGERD. Holy cuteness overload...  Many thanks to the friend who was puppy-sitting for tolerating my childish glee :)
