Office Costume

My whole transition into business-casual-land hit a new milestone yesterday…it was time for the office Halloween Costume. Ooooo ahhhh, I know, what was I, you ask? Well, I rocked the crap out of Hermione. Ohhhh yes, I pulled out my Scotland wool sweater, brought the wand into public, and learned to tie a tie all in order to pull off this level of awesomeness…and I’s pretty sure it was a success.

Mostly, though, I was just pretty dang excited to wear my HP gear all day…in public…without judgement…mostly. There were a few interesting looks shot my way when I walked into the grocery store on my lunch break but, despite the weird (probably jealous, let’s be honest) looks,  it was a blast being a wizard. If only I could take wizarding up as a full time profession…that would be the life!

As a side note, Dave (yep, Marci’s Dave who also happens to be my lunchtime photographer) and I had never considered the the fact that there is a parking garage attached to the building we work in…this was just the thing Marci and I dreamt of in months past, trudging through puddles and downpour just to snag a picture or two! How we didn’t realize there was photo shoot gold 30 feet from my desk is beyond me (derp moment, by chance?), regardless, it’s pretty awesome knowing we’ll never have to walk in the rain again for a lunch time photo shoot. It’s the little things in life, folks. Wands and parking garages are all it takes to live a very happy life.

Stripes: The Final Vacation Post

It’s that time, folks, the last vacation post of my epic East Coast adventures. Florida was a long rerun of allergy free pancakes, theme parks, and laughter so I think the best way to sum up this segment of travel is to throw about a million pictures of me and my friend, Blue. The first pictures are of us at Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Animal Kingdom (*cough cough* seven hundred pictures of giraffe butts because I am really a 6 year old trapped in this big person body) and the final set are from Universal Studios (more specifically, Wizarding World of Harry Potter) and a rainy day photoshoot of us EPICALLY nerding out. Please revel in our nerdiness and let me know in the comments if you’ve ever had a similar photoshoot because I would love to know we weren’t the only ones who were so HP excited!

Our very dorky HP photoshoot came up because of an 8 hour thunder and lightning storm accentuated by a torrential downpour and a Lifetime movie marathon. Needless to say, after being stuck in our hotel room for hours and hours right after buying a TON of HP stuff we *had* to have a photoshoot.

Anyone else having a nerdy summer? I sure hope so! Life’s way(yyyyyyyy) more fun this way!
