Happy Monday to you! I hope you had a great weekend! With the front door and entryway finished, I'm like a new (much happier) woman! We took Miss L. to a "pumpkin patch". I put that in quotes because most of the pumpkins were rotten and yucky. They had a few decent ones left, so we arranged them around her to make it look like they were everywhere. I really didn't mind. My goals were to get her in a super-cute outfit and take some pictures with pumpkins. We bought some apples from the ... Read More about Weekend O’ Pumpkin Fun!

This owl costume is super cute and very easy to make! Can you believe that Halloween is already right around the corner? Crazy! When I was pregnant with Miss L last year at this time, I was already thinking about what Babygirl would be for Halloween.

I am tweaking the idea just a bit. Miss L will be wearing a ... Read More about DIY Owl Halloween Costume
