Happy Halloween

I know it's a bit of overkill, posting two days in a row, but I had to.  It was a perfectly brisk, fall day today and I made a quick cider run in CW before the hours and hours of work and studying I'll be doing for the rest of the week.  Here are some pictures from today:

Flowers :)

Incredibly vibrant tree I came across in CW

Not a black cat, but the pose makes up for it.

Spotted: cows!

Peanut Shoppe: Spiced Maple Pumpkin Dip and animal crackers

And of course I had to go into the Candy Shop

Where's the candy corn?!  I was slightly disappointed; three different stores and nowhere to buy bulk candy corn.

Satchel from ClubCouture; it came in the mail earlier last week.  The two of us have been attached at the hip...literally, since I got it.

Lace skirt from target, gray top from Forever 21, scarf from Burlington.

You say "to-ma-to", I say "to-mah-to"

When I first started seeing the oxblood trend on Lookbook, pinterst, and other fashion media, I was a bit confused.  Oxblood...maroon...crimson, it's all the same to me, and it wasn't really anything new.  Nevertheless, it's still an autumn favorite.

Looking through my recent lookbook hypes, I didn't realize how many looks I'd hyped that had oxblood.  The first one is definitely my favorite.

Hark Upon the Gale

More families than usual walking around campus and a weekend full of events?  It must be Homecoming Weekend.  :)

Seeing all of the alum, those I know and those who were here long before I was even born, makes me anticipate and dread the inevitable day when I'll no longer be a student here.  It's incredibly frightening to have to think about life after college, but I'll be alright.  Can't stay in school forever.

Our Alma Mater:
Hark! the students' voices swelling
Strong and true and clear.
Alma Mater's love they're telling,
Ringing far and near.

William and Mary loved of old
Hark upon the gale,
Hear the thunder of our chorus
Alma Mater - Hail.

All thy sons are faithful to thee,
Through their College days,
Singing loud from hearts that love thee,
Alma Mater's praise.

Iron-shod or golden-sandaled
Shall the years go by
Yet our hearts shall weave about thee
Love that cannot die.

God, our Father, hear our voices
Listen to our cry;
Bless the College of our fathers,
Let her never die. 

Also....100th post!  :)

"Oh, have I been too discreet?"

A montage of pictures covering my day walking around Old Town with my sister.

Tapas restaurant.  Just makes me think about how I want to make paella.  :)

I love the different colors of the row houses.  I'm going to end up living in a row's gonna happen.

 Spotted the beginnings of fall.

Happy Birthday, Mother!

It seems like every other week I'm posting about a birthday.  But it was my mother's birthday yesterday, so I have to write something.

And by write something, I mean post pictures.  :)  So here are some semi-rare happy pictures of my mom.

Can't wait to be home tomorrow!  A much needed break to hang out with family homework in the comfort of my own house.

Are we the brutal hearts that break this night in two?

The school week is finally over.  One of the more stressful weeks of the semester, but I got through it.  Now to relax this weekend.

With all the work I've had to do this week, I've been listening to a few songs on repeat.

Namely this one: "Brutal Hearts" by Bedouin Soundclash.  Nick Lazzarini danced an amazing solo to this song on All the Right Moves.

 "Cry Like a Ghost" Passion Pit

Happy October!

How is it already the first of October?

Aside from the craziness of two exams, two lab reports, a problem set, a programming project, and a short oral presentation due this week, I'm definitely not as stressed out as I probably should be.

But I found the below picture on tumblr and just had to put it here.  My favorites: 1, 4, 5, 9, 12, and 20. 

I've also gone to my happy place; I'm listening to a giant playlist of Broadway musicals.  It's full of amazing songs and voices that I've forgotten about.
