Hello dear internet friends! this morning I'm enjoying the awesomeness of getting to dress up at my job. :o) Sometimes my work is AWESOME. :o)

ANYWHO.....I need some help from y'all.

My sweet, amazing boyfriend Soldier Boy is taking me to Ballet West's The Lottery this weekend. :) I didn't buy season tickets because of the cost this year and because this fall show was the ONLY one I really wanted to go to - the other performances will be good, but this is the one show I didn't want to miss. So Soldier Boy is being awesome and is taking me to the ballet.

So what's the problem you ask? Well.....I don't know what to wear. I have a couple of formal outfits that I can wear....but I'm not sure which one to wear this time. so, let me present my cases and then you can help me out. ;)

Option 1: the Chinese outfit

This outfit is the one I made two years ago (with lots of help from mom....) I've worn the top and skirt several times since then - not always together - and I do like it....

Option 2: the Polka Dot Dress

This outfit is one that I purchased (with help from Soldier Boy) to take to my friend's Fashion Show in March...I also wore it on a date w/him to the ballet when we first started dating.

Option 3: Brown and Teal

I don't have a picture of this outfit, but I have worn it to the ballet once before (with Monkey Man last year) It's the brown skirt from above and then a teal blouse that I purchased. I look really good in this outfit and I do love it. :o)

So there you three options. I'm leaning towards Option #1....but we'll see what y'all think/how I feel Saturday morning.

guess what?

hey guys, guess what? I'm going to DISNEYLAND!!!

I know, I know, it feels like I just went (a little more than 6 months ago) and I wasn't really planning on going again so SOON....but it just happened!

It all started with me realizing I had a floating holiday that I needed to use before the end of the year. I'm not going to VA for Christmas this year and that's when I usually use my floating holiday. So in talking with my awesome boyfriend he suggested that I take it on a Thursday before one of my normal 3-day weekends. I thought this was a brilliant idea and we took a look at the calendar and decided that taking it next weekend would be perfect. Soldier Boy is still looking for a job so we decided we would go somewhere. We talked about a lot of different ideas from going to St. George, to Denver, to Park City we then turned our minds to go going to Disneyland. Well...we put a post up on a facebook to see if we could fill the car with others and we did! we're going to Disneyland next weekend - during Halloween time! I'm so excited about this! I've heard Disneyland at Halloween time is the best thing ever, so I'm very much looking forward to going out of town with some friends and my awesome boyfriend. :o)

See ya when I get back! :-)
