Monday Madness Link Up 10.27.14

Oct 27, 2014
Here is a bunch of random stuff. Link up your random stuff at the bottom of this post.


Can someone tell me if I am being ripped off? I took a dress to a local seamstress to have the hem take up about 2 inches. It's a faux denim dress with two layers. My jaw almost hit the floor when she told me it would be around $25. Thoughts?

 
 
How is the last week on October already?! Although I am not excited we are getting closer to winter, I am totally ready for November! I have a total of 6 1/2 vacation days from work in November. Mid month I am headed on a Bahamas cruise with one of my BFFs, Laura. Girls trip! At the end of the month Nick and I will be making a quick trip to Pennsylvania to spend Thanksgiving with my family. Can't wait!

Yes, please!

Andy won the title in Valencia this past weekend, giving him 31 career title wins!

Nick and I saw Gone Girl last week! I was really excited that Gillian Flynn, the author, also wrote the screen play. That's really the only way to go when turning a book into a movie. I find that movies based on books when the authors sell the rights never turn out as great as I hope. I felt Rosmund Pike came off older on screen than how I pictured Amy throughout the book. However, I do think she's in the running for an Oscar nod. Her acting was amazing. Also, no one has mentioned this so I'm going to -  how about that Ben Afflect full frontal? I found it really weird and unneccessary. Would love to hear your thoughts on this movie!

 
 
Have a great week and don't forget to link up!

  1. I didn't catch the Ben Affleck flash- although I did catch the Neil Patrick Harris bloody one. Awkward.

  4. Unfortunately I think the tailoring price you got was actually pretty good. I had to have my rehearsal dinner dress taken in and the first place I took it quoted me $65 because it was two layers.. um no! I paid $100 for the dress itself! I looked at reviews online and found another place to take it, but it was still $40.

    Yay vacation- that sounds wonderful! Which islands will you be going to?

    Ashley! I just got back from my honeymoon and read two books that reminded me a lot of Gone Girl (not too much). I'm at my desk and don't remember the titles at the moment (sad) but I will let you know what they were later. If you liked Gone Girl I think that you would like these a lot too.

  6. I absolutely loooooved Gone Girl! I didn't read the book, so I had no clue what was going to happen and was just in suspense the entire time. I really loved it and thought they both played their parts extremely well. And the Bahamas- so fun!!!

  7. Yay for seeing Gone Girl finally! The thing about Rosmund Pike that totally threw me off was how deep her voice was... not at all how I pictured Amy in my head. And yeah, all the nudity was totally not necessary in my opinion but that's Hollywood!
