Our first Halloween as a family!

This was our first Halloween together as a family and boy was it a fun one! It was also the first year i’ve done anything close to the festivities we took part in. Growing up I just went trick-or-treating. Don’t get me wrong, it was a lots of fun. But this year was different. We got together with his family and the kids played game, we had dinner, and we all went trick-or-treating together. Making memories like these are what I live for. I’m excited that we are making memories together and baby girl is making so many new friends, her cousins! 

Baby girl woke up and was VERY excited for it to be Halloween! She helped Grandma make mommy and daddy orange scrambled eggs and pumpkin shaped french toast! 

Mommy took the easy way out with decorating pumpkins this year and we just used paint. Sue me. If you have ever seen me carve a pumpkin before, you would understand my reasoning behind this. 


These are just a few pictures from our fun night! Baby girl had such a fun night! I asked her how her halloween was and she said it was “GREAT!” I would say that’s a success! And let’s talk about how cute this “shaggy dog” is! Seriously the cutest costume ever! 

Do you have any Halloween traditions?
Do you dress up as an adult?

Post 7: Your zodiac sign and if you think it matches your personality

I am a leo, hear me roar! 
I kid, I kid. 
That’s about all I know about my zodiac sign. The fact that I am a leo. 
I never grew up “believing” in zodiac signs, if that’s what you want to call it. I was raised in a christian home and I remember my mom telling me horoscopes/zodiac signs were bogus. I can’t fully say if I think it “fits my personality” or not, because I simply don’t read them. I just don’t think that because you were born in a certain time of year, you are a certain type of personality. Every single person is different, no doubt about it. And on another note? Horoscopes are hilarious to me. You’re going to believe some magazine telling you what days are “best for love”, or which days you should play the lottery? Excuse me while I laugh at you. HAHAHA. Okay that was harsh. #sorrynotsorry.

Thats the gist of it, people. My take on zodiac signs!

What is your sign?
Do YOU think it fits YOUR personality?

“If I see anyone here I know, I’m going to die!”

The famous line I would always say to my mother when she dragged me into thrift stores….”If I see anyone here I know, I’m going to die!” Was I being a BIT of a dramatic 13 year old? Probably. But my mom would always counter my statement with “If they see you here, it’s because THEY ARE HERE TOO!” ….Touché mom, TOUCHÉ.

It’s funny looking back on times like that because I LOVE thrifting now. I literally get a rush from going to thrift stores and seeing what good deals I can find. It’s always a “win some, lose some” situation, but nonetheless it’s always fun! I’m glad that at a young age, in a world where everyone is in constant competition to look the best, I have appreciated the art of thrifting. Yes, I said ART, people! I truly believe I had one of the best hauls i’ve had this past week. Top 5 FOR SURE. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to look fabulous. I by no means have a great sense of fashion but I do like looking put together. 

I found this cute swimsuit top. Although it MIGHT be a maternity top, i’m totally in love. I’ve wanted something a little more “conservative” for summer time and this was the perfect pick. It is a darker charcoal color and I figured with a bright colored bottom, this would look awesome!
Paid: $3.99 Brand: Old Navy

Who doesn’t love bright colored shirts?! I was drawn to this beauty for obvious reasons! I love the lace detail around the top and the shirt is beyond long! I LOVE long shirts! This material is so lightweight which is an added bonus.  
Paid: $4.99 Brand: H&M

My next blouse is just too adorable. Not much to it, but I loved the simplicity of it. I quickly learned, when looking for a retail price, “BLAIR” might OR MIGHT NOT BE an “old lady brand”. THIS SHIRT IS STILL CUTE, OKAY?! (Hashtag don’t judge me.) 
Paid: $4.99 Brand: Blair

Comfortable clothes are at the top of my list. I hate being in regular clothes any longer than I have to. I landed a SUPER comfy workout type jacket. “Activewear” they call it. HA! It should be called “Lounge around the house wear”. 
Paid: $3.99 Brand: Lucy 

Sweater season is fast approaching, is it not?! Well, if you live anywhere but the land of heat that I am from. Regardless, I love sweaters and couldn’t resist this one! 
Paid: $5.99 Brand: Sonoma Life & Style (Sold @ Kohls)

These next two dresses were probably two of my favorite finds in the history of finds! This blue dress is just to die for! All lace, stylish, fits me?! Perfection. The “country vibe” of this really screamed at me and I just couldn’t pass it up. 
Paid: $9.99 Brand: MERONA 

This dress is a little….”out there”. Let’s be honest, I think it’s what i’m most excited about! Bright colors, crazy patterns, perfect in every way! It fit like a glove and I loved the classiness of it. And people….it has POCKETS! P-O-C-K-E-T-S. If you don’t love pocket dresses, you must not love puppies. Or ice cream. Or all things wonderful! Okay kidding, but seriously. I’m in LOVE. 
Paid: $9.99 Brand: Emma and Michele

What have been your best finds?!

Happy Hump Day, everyone! If you live under a rock and haven’t seen this video yet, go do it now. You can thank me later. 

Okay now that we are all in a good mood because of our friend the camel, lets talk about my photo dump for the day! I figured this was a fun way for you, the amazing people who read my blog, to see the pictures i’ve taken for the week! (Plus or minus the 29582 selfies I take) 
If you want to follow along, check back every wednesday! Trust me, you’ll want to stay. 😉

1. I’ve really tried to watch what i’ve been eating lately due to the fact that I WILL NOT fit into my wedding dress if I don’t start. I don’t mean that negatively, i’m just stating facts. And lets be honest, this Lean Cuisine was DELICIOUS. I was actually surprised! 

2. You know what I love about our relationship? Knowing we are having all of our “last first times” with each other! Sunday was one of those days for us and we were REALLY excited about what we did! That exciting news will be put into another post once everything plays out. (Don’t cha want to REALLY stick around now?!)

3. The other night we sat on my back patio, grilled, and watched the storm roll in! Oh and enjoyed an adult beverage. I know you can’t tell from the picture, but the sky was beyond dark. Fun fact? Rainy, stormy, cold weather is my FAVORITE kind of weather. 

4. Sometimes at work, we get broken pie shells. #pastrychefproblems

Do you have any diet plans you stick to or “healthy” meals you like?
What is your favorite kind of weather?

I hope you liked this “dump day” and I hope you have a good HUMP DAY!
