YOU GUYS. It is the last week of October. What? This month flew by so ridiculously fast. I swear it was just yesterday that all of the bloggers were celebrating September 1st #sobasic It’s days until Halloween, and I plan to soak up as much October goodness as I can the next few days. Because you guys, November 1st is official Christmas pajama season in my house!
1. Speaking of Christmas pajamas, Carter’s has this adorable style right now, and I think they are just perfect! They look very similar to a much more expensive brand, and are so perfect for the holidays. I wonder if they will make them in my size for me?.. Someone stop me I have a problem.
2. Eyes and Brows
I am so ridiculously excited, Beautycounter just brought back their eyeliners and brow pencils! These items have been unavailable for nearly a year, and quantities are while supplies last. I kind of find it funny how, back in our middle school prime days it was all about the thin eyebrows, and now we seriously make them as full as we possibly can. I can say I am definitely a MUCH bigger fan of the natural look though, within reason at least 😉 These items are amazing so try them out while they are available!
3. All the fall things
Mike has to work nearly the entire weekend, which is a bummer. BUT, I am determined to get my little guys to a pumpkin patch this weekend! Between Lincoln’s baptism (which I just realized I still haven’t recapped), family functions, and just a busy month, I am eager to get these boys out to pick pumpkins. Jackson is obsessed with them, and everytime we drive by a place that has any sort of a pumpkin out, he explains ‘HI-ya-se-se’. That is his word for pumpkin. Or jack-o-lantern. To be honest, I have no idea what exactly he is saying, but it is without a doubt his word for pumpkin. My sister in law pointed out to me how fun it is that little ones have a language that often we as parents understand, but no one else does, and it is so true! All of his precious little words that make no sense to everyone else but I know exactly what he is talking about make it so fun to be his mama. I absolutely cannot wait to see his precious face when he sees a pumpkin and gets to pick one of his own. While he does so, I will likely be doing my best to prevent Lincoln from eating leaves..
4. Earlier this week, I kind of dumped my heart out in this post. While I write a lot about my family, what is going on, and perhaps growing pains, I really do tend to keep my deep and personal thoughts private and within the confines of my home. However, recently there has been so much change in my community, so much hate, and so much increasing violence, that I couldn’t help but speak out. As a proud Christian, I want to be a shining example of what we are first and foremost placed here to do, and that is love one another. I hope I was able to be a reminder to some who perhaps have forgotten, or who let anger and differences get in the way.
5. I didn’t post too much this week, however I am very excited about the few I put out. Yesterday I shared a home tour that was long overdue! I stuck to the basics, and the photos are a look at the house before anything was moved in. While I love to see décor, I also love that I have photos to look back on and remember what it felt like seeing our home when it was brand new and not yet ours. I also don’t mind seeing the playroom pre-toys. 😉 #itwassoclean #toystoysEVERYWHERE
I hope you all have a fantastic Friday, and do all of the fun and festive Halloween things! I need to watch Hocus Pocus ASAP or I just might have to disown myself!
