Life Gets In The Way

So I really wanted to make Pinterest worthy Halloween costumes for the kids this year. I thought it would be soooo cute if they were some smashing, coordinating duo.  Then I had a root canal. On a tooth that had already had a root canal.
Our dryer broke. Then Wesley cut four molars & Mia acted out like a 16 year old. Work was really stressful for both of us. Next, our refrigerator broke for the 2nd time in a year & we still haven't replaced all the food we lost. I locked the kids & I out of the house & ran out of gas with no debit card. Damon had to rescue us both times.
So screw Pinterest, life got in the way & I bought the smashing Elsa & Olaf duo from Target. 
Guess what? Mia absolutely refused to wear Elsa. COME ON!!!! So here are Belle & Olaf the apples of my eye!!!!!  Happy Halloween & don't be too hard on yourself if an amazing Halloween custom creation escapes you this year. Sometimes life gets in the way.

Here's to Five

Yesterday was our 5th Wedding Anniversary. We treated ourselves to a new fridge since ours died a miserable death earlier in the week!!!  My real gift?? A family photo shoot. Thanks to my best friend for this beautiful life!!!!  It's a wild chaos covered in milk & salty baby tears. Oh so sweet. Some of our wedding pics here.

We Made Sunshine Today

I wasn't so sure about this outfit today. I had another dress in  mind but the fit just wasn't right. I grabbed this blue one that I happened to get for $20 at Old Navy. Added my favorite hat, a bright red lip & some leaopard. Bam, I was ready to tackle the day. This afternoon Wes had his PT evaluation for late walkers aaaannnnnd he killed it. They said he was perfect. A sunshine sweater on a great day for my sunshine boy!!!

Perfect Fall Play Date

Last not ended in chaos & it was all my fault. I was lazy & cold & we didn't leave the house all day. By the time Damon got home form work the kids were monsters!! I promised today would be different & the fall weather helped this sorry mama out!!! The Grange Audubon Center is a hidden gem for weary parents like myself, looking for cheap (FREE) amazing ways to entertain toddler terrors!!! Beautiful walking paths, baby size climbing walls, wildflowers, slides, an indoor play climbing area complete w bird costumes. As you can see we had a blast with our friends Allison, Brooks & Rory. Damon's probably going to sh$@ when he sees Mia on top of that rock wall. She climbed it like a champ!! Love building my beautiful girl's self confidence! Our first visit here.

The Pumpkin Patch

So THANKFUL for this warm, windy day. I wasn't sure it was ever going to stop raining! Our trip to the pumpkin patch is always in my top five, favorite days of the year. Damon's back might disagree since he carried Wesley the entire time & then picked out the most giant pumpkins in the world. I mean seriously look at those stems!!!! I finally decided today I 'm tired of being stressed about Halloween costumes & bought Elsa & Olaf from Target. So far Mia is refusing the idea saying she wants to be a fairy. I told her she could put her wings over Elsa's dress but she's not having it......
Last years trip  to Pigeon Roost here.

Pop of Fall

Today was deceptively warm. I had several hot flashes, though they could have also been caused by work stress. I cooled down with mini kit kats. Five of them. Saw this skirt at Target & loved how it embraced fall but had that hidden pop fuchsia.  Off to watch the The Voice. The battle rounds are tonite!!! Which team are you??
