Autumn Roses (and Me as Marilyn Monroe) - Show and Tell Friday

Pin It Now!



Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!  

I think these are the last of my roses for this season! I have a few buds left on the bushes but it's cooling down now here (finally) that they may not bloom.

Last weekend I had 5 Halloween parties that I went to Friday and Saturday night! Yes FIVE!!! There were actually some more that we never made it to.  I sure had fun being Marilyn Monroe...


I've been dying to wear this dress since I bought on our trip to Los Angeles in July!


My friends had the idea to recreate the famous Marilyn photo with her dress blowing up. Since we didn't have a subway grate for me to stand over they brought out the hair dryer! haha...it didn't work so well but it sure made me laugh! We were all cracking up! There were 3 people standing in front of me and I was so worried the dress would blow up over my head! Luckily it didn't!  

This weekend the fun continues. It's a girls weekend away to Lake Tahoe!  Some of my coworkers commented today that I live such a fun life. I told them I couldn't do it without my friends!  Good girlfriends can be so much fun!
