Halloween 2017

Ahhh Happy November!!! What a week it has been!!! We had the most fun Halloween ever, our kids are officially at the most fun age for Trick or Treating & we loved every minute of it. Our week has been full of parties, trick or treating (and lots of it because we had lots of costumes!) and making (and delivering) all the sweet treats we could! We had trunk or treat at our church, the little ones went as Darla & Alfalfa (I couldn’t resist, they are obsessed with this movie!!) and Harper went as wonder woman, although she wasn’t feeling well so she sat out for most of it, but then wanted to sleep in her costume of course. We also had our adults only “movie couple themed” Halloween party and it was SO much fun. We went as Tyler Durden & Marla Singer from Fight Club (brandon has wanted this costume since college!) and our friends all blew us away with their creative costumes. It was SO much fun and will definitely become a tradition!!

Funny story, the first time I asked Harper what she wanted to be for Halloween, she said “ummm, I don’t know, maybe someone who can’t hear Claire when she is crying?” Touche, kid.

On Halloween, the girls were so excited & ready to get their costumes on first thing in the morning. We opted for no family costumes this year (yes I was a little heartbroken) but everything turned out so fun & cute. Mostly the llama, which we found at target, and I was definitely disappointed that it didn’t come in my size. We spent most of the day putting finishing touches on them, I added a few extra layers of tulle to Ellie’s store bought costume & Harper’s we made from scratch (with a pink dress underneath) because she has been obsessed with the tooth fairy since her fifth birthday when the dentist told her she would most likely lose a tooth now that she is five! 😉 Turns out there aren’t a lot of tooth fairy costumes available but it was super fun to make it with her. God bless the hot glue gun.

We trick or treated in our neighborhood with a few friends, the girls were up way past their bedtime and having too much fun. I definitely ate two boxes of Junior Mints the next morning for breakfast and was quickly reminded why we never keep candy in the house! 😉 I looooove Halloween and was so sad it was over (we crashed on the couch drinking wine & watching Stranger Things) but I jumped at the chance to tear down all of the spider webs the next morning in preparation for THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR. Hope you guys had the most fun & magical Halloween, I absolutely LOVED seeing all of your costumes!!! Until next year! xo

Friday Favorites

Ahhh it’s officially Halloween weekend!!!! We are bursting at the seams with excitement for all of the fun on the way. We are taking the kids to two trunk or treats, having our Halloween party on Saturday & doing official Trick or Treating on Halloween night. And have I started making costumes yet? Nope.

Sharing Friday Favorites instead.

Who said popsicles are just for summer?! These s’mores popsicles are screaming Fall and we are going to make them this weekend for some of our Halloween festivities.

My all time favorite cardigan that everyone needs this season (in sooo many pretty colors!). And maybe this one too because ruffles are life!

A fun read, the healthiest Halloween candies.

Obsessed with this clutch for the Fall & Holiday season, perfect to throw in a bigger bag holding all the essentials or just for a night out without your diaper bag!

Double Double Toil & Trouble. Yep, the movie. And you can still get it on Amazon Prime before Halloween night.

For my essential oil lovers, Halloween Candy Diffuser Blends that will not disappoint!!

And last but not least, who is excited for the return of Stranger Things?! No better weekend for it!!

Cheers, friends!! Hope you all have the HAPPIEST, most magical weekend!!! xo

Carving Pumpkins

Happy Monday!! Every day is happy in October, right?! We are getting all the Fall weather in Atlanta this week & we are looooooving it! Leaves are everywhere, Halloween parties are about to go down & we will not turn Hocus Pocus off until the morning of November 1st. We finally got around to carving our pumpkins this weekend & it was the most fun ever! After all the ewwwws and yuuuuucks, the girls were brave and stuck their hands right down inside the guts & loved every minute. Eloise may have even eaten some.

We ended up with a cat, a pumpkin full of stars, and a happy jack-o-lantern, and mom of the year forgot to get tea lights, so we have to wait just one more night to see them glow! Have you guys carved your pumpkins yet, what’s left on your October bucket list?! xo
