Halloween 2013

Halloween 2013 has already been epic!  At work on Friday we had a party over lunch for a coworker who is moving, and also celebrated Halloween!  The little girls wore their Star Wars costumes and one of my friends put some Princess Leia buns in my hair.  We were set!


Chimi was sleeping on the job.


They were good little workers!


Then on Saturday we had a Halloween party at a friend's house and we went as Buddy and Jovi!


All my friends commented they couldn't believe I made Nate do this but HE was all about it!  Nate was legit Buddy the Elf growing up, always WAY taller than his classmates and so adorable!  This picture isn't the best example but the only one on my computer (see Natey, far left in the red sweater?  So cute!).


We had to watch the movie while getting ready.


I attempted a pink frosty makeup look.  Not sure if I achieved it but I still liked it!


I ordered some long red leggings from Amazon and something most have happened with the package.  It said estimated delivery on Thursday and as of Saturday, still nothing.  We ran around looking for red leggings and I found some workout ones, but they had a big NIKE logo on the back.  Sprinkles felt my pain.


Added some Christmas socks from my collection - problem solved!


We are ready!




Little girls always have to be in a pic!


The party was super fun!  Lots of good food and I made new furry friends like always!



Love these girls!  Can't show the picture of the boys.  There is one particularly naughty costume!


Such a fun night!


Hope everyone is enjoying lots of fun Halloween festivities!

Week In Pictures

Recent happenings through the eyes of my phone camera.

Still obsessing about making over our family room with built ins!


Got a movie request from my cousin for craft weekend - Gnome Mobile!


Chimi likes snuggling up about as much as I do.


More Bahama Mama - can't get enough of this polish.


I failed at craft weekend and didn't craft.  I did however make a new bestie!


So sweet!


We snuggled in jammies.


Sprinks also didn't have a craft and slept her way through craft weekend.


Ran into MJ at ValleyScare!


Last bit of Halloween d├ęcor


Got pinned by QVC!  Woo!


I don't know about you guys but this start of frigid weather is kicking me in the buns!  Can't we sleep in until 10 and drink cider all day??  At least Christmas decorating starts November 1st! :)

Fall Outfit Planning (Part Two)

Here we go with Part Two!  It took me a while to get inspired again after Part One, and I still want to do this again since I am struggling with my Fall fashion!

A few weeks ago I went to my first Flaunt Party at a friends.  Such a cute idea!  The truck wasn't there (I was bummed) so I might have to stalk it so I can shop from the truck.  I only got this scarf but can't wait to go again!  I'm excited to wear it with lots of different outfits.  Obviously wearing it with the token leggings/boots/sweater outfit works.

Scarf: Flaunt, Sweater: Arden B, Leggings: Target, Boots: Alloy



When we were in Chicago, I spotted a girl wearing a cute shirt in the window of the donut shop.  I was obsessed but didn't ask where it was from.  Then I come to work and one of my coworkers was wearing it!  I had to copy.  I promised I wouldn't wear it to work when she was there.  Love comfy plaid shirts!

Shirt: Old Navy, Jeans: MiH, Necklace: Urban Outfitters


The blazer and rock tee trend will never go out of style.  And even if it does, I will keep wearing it.  Such an easy and fun look!  Especially with some colorful skinnies.  Rock on!  (This is a Van Halen t-shirt and whenever I wear it I think of the quote from one of my favorite movies, Wedding Singer. "Get out of my Van Halen T-shirt before you jinx the band and they break up".  Classic).

Blazer: Can't remember, T-shirt: Target, Skinnies: Alloy


One of my all time favorite outfits on the blog Running on Happiness just needed to be recreated.  I have saved this idea for years and just realized I had some stripes in my closet that would work!  She might be the cutest person alive so this is the not as cute version of that outfit.  I still absolutely love it though and it will be a repeater!

Top: Forever 21, Jeans: J Brand, Necklace: Urban Outfitters, Jacket: Target


I wore this before going to the greatest place on earth...Benihana!


When my bestie and I went to the Albertville outlets a month or so ago we both fell in love with these Gap shirts.  They are the perfect fit!  I wish I had purchased other colors because this striped one gets LOTS of use.  Paired it with a Groop Dealz necklace and it is magical!

Top: Gap, Necklace: GroopDealz


Chambray shirts are another style I can't get enough of!  I don't wear it as often as I would like because it always needs ironing, and that is something I prefer to not do! :)  I do love how outfits turn out when I choose to iron and wear it.

Top: Old Navy, Cardi: Target, Skinnies: Alloy, Boots: Steve Madden, Necklace: Gift from Mom


Just switched a few pieces around for this and it is cute and casual! 

Shirt: Old Navy, Tank: Target, Scarf: Lyla's Clear Lake, Skinnies: Alloy, Slippers: Target


Blurry pic but how cute is Chimi? I love my little shadows. :)


So I will be doing a Part Three, hopefully soon!  Any good Fall ideas or pieces you can share?

Week In Pictures

Recent happenings through the eyes of my phone camera.

We have been out of dog treats for a while.  Impossible to get Chim to her cage without them!  Hint: look under the couch.


Extra spoiled this week - had Wildfire twice!  Once for lunch and once for dinner when parents were in town!


Sprinkles favorite morning nap spot - Nate's dirty laundry.


Love the Fall colors so much!


Finally organized my party supplies in one spot.  Will be so much easier to find when I need!



Melissa's wedding was this weekend!  She was a gorgeous bride!


Lindsey took some engagement pictures for them and one of them was blown up to a canvas.  So pretty!


Friends/coworkers at the wedding!


After the wedding we went to a late night showing of Gravity!  Please go see this movie now!  Since we had our wedding clothes on we stopped at Target and picked up sweats to wear.  Nate's were a little short but looked great with his dressy shoes! :)


Vikings game with my parents!  Terrible game but great company. :)

Week In Pictures

Recent happenings through the eyes of my phone camera.

The couches have helped so much!  The front section of our house is looking so much better!


I had a ladies crab night!  It was so fun to catch up with crab loving girlfriends and eat delicious food!



The little girls got their Halloween costumes - Star Wars themed!  Sprinkles clearly isn't enjoying hers...funny video on my Instagram. :)




My SIL keeps sending me pics of my nephew and it makes me so sad!  He is so stinking cute!




Lowe's is all set for Christmas!  I always knew they were my favorite home improvement store. :)


Anyone else have snuggly pups and find it SO HARD to get up and leave them in the morning?  Makes me want to cry!


Turned on the fireplace for the first time this season!  Chimi is a happy girl!


Whenever the fire detectors run out of battery Sprinkles has a heart attack.  She was super on the lookout for the boogeyman!!


How my little girl sleeps with me.  So sweet!


Since Nate was on boy's weekend, my Friday night consisted of cookies and movie time.


Can't Hardly Wait has the best ending to a movie ever!!  Had to download this song (I own the soundtrack but it's not on there) because I love it so much ("Only You" by Yaz)!  So 80s and so amazing (the song, I know the movie is '98).


Natey took me to my favorite meal ever...Benihana!  So happy.


Hope everyone's Monday wasn't as crazy as mine!  Sheesh!  But it's done!  Woo!!
