Life Lately

Lately...

fall has come and gone. Didn't it happen fast? Seriously though, one minute it was bright, warm and sunny, the next the leaves were on the ground and we were back in our winter clothes.

I kind of wish it was still summer, but I have to admit that fall was gorgeous. I love the cool breeze and the all the colorful leaves.

Speaking of which, did you see what I made with all pretty branches and acorns I picked up (

Lately...

Halloween happened. Yup. I realize this is a bit overdue but I just had to share with you my Halloween costume; my first try at a sugar skull. It wasn't that great, but I learned a few things about drug store face paint. It sucks. It's super thick and sticky. It's impossible to spread on your face, and don't even get me started on taking it off... Anyway. Next time I'll try with makeup. Hopefully it makes things easier!

We also decorated our yard a little. Nothing too fancy. A few small carved pumpkins (our very first - not bad right?) and a tombstone. We're starting small and building up over the next few years because money doesn't grow on trees (god knows I wish it did).

Lately...

I decided to try some of the Honest Co. products. I really love what they stand for so I thought I'd give them a go. I'll be sharing a review at a later time.

Lately...

We've been trying to enjoy the last glimpse of warmth and blue skies by taking long walks and going to the park. We also visited my parent's cabin and took our son on his first boat ride. He was a bit scared and uneasy about the whole thing, but he stayed in the boat, so I guess you can call that a win.

Lately...

Snow. WHY oh WHY? That is all.
