A good omen

My first pumpkin spice latte of the season is adorned with quite a lovely mermaid flopper. I think this is a good omen for the fall ahead.



In other sea creature news...

This is the octopus I decided on buying for my rehearsal dinner:



Go visit Renee Loughlin's Etsy shop pinkdragonfly98 to see the other Revamped Vintage Jewelry she has available.

My bachelorette party is Saturday and I'm really looking forward to a low key evening with some of my favorite ladies. Andrew and I have both instituted a very strict "No Strippers" rule, so instead we will be drinking delicious craft beers and singing our hearts out at my favorite karaoke locale.


Have a great weekend! And to my fellow Americans, have a great THREE DAY WEEKEND! Yesssssssssss.

I love the necklace. Octopuses (Octopi?) used to freak me out because they were like the ocean's version of spiders, but I have to admit that necklace is very cute.

Also, I had my 1st pumpkin spice latte of the season yesterday, and it was heavenly.

Dude! Canadians get a 3-day weekend this weekend too. Where is the love?

Have fun at your bachelorette party. Please do not get drugged by random men and end up in the hospital wearing a diaper. It's not a fun way to end your bachelorette party. Just sayin'.

Mermanda said...

Sorry, Hillary and all Canadians! I didn't know! Happy three day weekend to you toooooo!

And I will definitely try not to get roofied. But my mom is probably attending and anyone who would dare roofie me while next to my protective mother is a dead man. Just sayin'.

Dear Mermanda:
I would like to request that you sing "Total Eclipse of the Heart" and dedicate it to me.
Love,
Hillary

Hahaha! Don't you LOVE the new cups this fall? When I went to work and saw the. I was like oh yay! Cute cute.
Also? I love that necklace! For some reason real life octopi freak me out, adorned jewelry? Not so much!

I had my first pumpkin spice latte a couple days ago. I went into Starbucks for an iced mocha but then I saw the big sign about the pumpkin spice lattes. Of course, I had to get one. :)

Love that necklace! So funky. Your wedding is going to be like no other ;-)

Kyla Roma said...

Love the necklace, thanks for the etsy link. Hope you had an amazing Saturday night!! =)

That's the original Starbucks logo! Only one storefront exists with the scantily clad mermaid. It was considered too scantily clad for anywhere else in the world besides Seattle, apparently.
