So let’s start with Halloween.
You saw some of it, but here’s more. We trick or treated for about an hour, but all of the neighborhoods were empty (which was weird because it was still pretty early when we went out).
On the day before my birthday (the day after Halloween), Kyle’s mom ended up getting me some clothes for my job interview (more about that later), and a gift card to downtown. I made homemade vegetable soup like I used to make at home, and Kyle’s brother made cheesecake. The cheesecake was supposed to be chilled for 5 hours. We didn’t want to wait until 2 am to eat it, so we had some slightly runny cheesecake; either way it was good. Kyle’s youngest brother Scott drew me a picture (of a hyena!), that I hung right next to my bed.
The next day, which was my actual birthday, I dissected a pig fetus at 10 a.m. for Biology, and at 2.30 went to a job interview. (Yes, I showered in between. I smelled awful.)
I got the job!
I also got some nail polishes and mascaras with my gift card from Ulta.
A couple of days later, I tried my hand at covering my tattoo, because my job requires that no tattoos are visible (and you know that I have one on each wrist).
Then on Friday, Kyle and I went to dinner with his dad and his dad’s girlfriend. I got a book, and a set of travel MAC brushes. (And I tried deep dish pizza, which I’m not really that fond of.)
I got this super soft blanket (among other things, I’m too tired to put everything back together to photograph) from my aunt Stacia.
Then, with the gift card, I got this from Barnes and Noble:
Christmas presents probably. :)
Then before my birthday week even started, I forgot to mention that Kyle bought me another book, one that I had been wanting to read for so long, but never had time to pick it up from the Hulett library. It’s “The Rose Labyrinth“. It was on the bargain table for $5.95, and he told me I could pick out any book for under $10. It’s hardcover and I can’t wait to read it!
And then yesterday, Kyle took me to the mall to find some black pants for my job (I did get pants from Annette but they have gray in them, and I can only wear flat black.). I got a pencil skirt, and some black pants (and tights, because I can’t have bare legs). We stopped at Target and picked up some food, and I also picked up some more of the best face wipes ever (which was good, because when we got back, I used the last one from my first pack).
Now, I have reading to do, a paper to do, and I have a test (which is tomorrow) to study for.
Also, don’t forget to enter my giveaway! It ends in 8 days, and I wouldn’t want you to miss out on free jewelry for the holidays! I pick the winner on Monday the 15th at 11 am Chicago time (so if you get in before that, while I’m in class, you still count).
