As I mentioned on Thursday, I’ll be doing weekly link round ups instead of just doing one once a month. This week I’ve been really feeling the love via Twitter, plus the contest I ran last week has bumped me up from 70 Facebook fans to over 150 (thanks everybody!). Getting more Twitter and Facebook followers is definitely a big goal of mine, so if you aren’t already connected with me, come on, do it NOW!
So since it’s Halloween, or at least the weekend before Halloween, I’m labeling this week’s round up Halloween Weekend Party Time! After stressing out all week about what I was going to dress up as for a party tonight, and not wanting to spend more than $15 on it, I’ve settled on Alice in Wonderland. I have a blue dress very similar to hers, I’ve got some Mary Jane heels that will do, and all I needed to buy was a black headband and a white apron (which was incredibly hard to find, let me tell you!). I still need some white tights, but I’m happy enough with the ensemble and it only cost me $10 altogether.
