Halloween 2014


Another Halloween has come & gone.  I have to admit, it's not my favorite holiday... but the kids always have such a blast & this year was no different!  We were really lucky the weather turned out as great as it did. Cold, yeah... but at least it didn't snow! (or rain like last year!!)

The best part was the kids picked out their own costumes and it was a VERY thrifty Halloween for a change.  Ruby's devil costume was only $14 at Walmart (we sold her costume from last year for $10) and her wicked cool "makeup" was just a pack of temporary tattoos from the dollar store!!

Memphis wanted to go as a nerd.  The fake glasses, shirt & sweater vest were his... and because it was cold, we added a lab coat we were able to borrow from my cousin!  Not to sound like a cheapskate, but with Memphis' birthday, my birthday, hubby's birthday, our wedding anniversary, Ruby's birthday & Christmas all happening between October & December... having one less day to spend a ton of money on really helps!!

We spent about an hour trick or treating and came home to sort through their bags of candy!

I hope everyone had a happy & safe Halloween weekend!!

A Little Thanksgiving Style Recap

Tunic: Joules // Jeans & Sunnies: Old Navy // Boots: Aldo // Necklace: Walmart // Bracelet: a gift
Another Thanksgiving has come & gone. It was filled with family, food and... fashion.
It was a beautiful Fall day here! The forecast from earlier in the week had been calling for cooler temps & rain, so I was pleasantly surprised to see the sun shining on Sunday.  I knew we'd have a great day!

 I was able to wear my new yellow tunic. The color is amazing!  And the detail around the neck is so, so pretty! I paired it with my favorite Old Navy jeans & a great pair of boots (which I scored for cheap from a co-worker who bought the wrong size!).  A long necklace & a cute bracelet finished the look!

Since the camera was out & everyone was in a good mood, we took the opportunity to snap a few family pics too!

Joules Bumble Bee Wellies!

Disclosure: Some items in this post were gifted to me but all opinions are my own.

You guys! I LOVE my new wellies!!
I'm not going to lie... I've been wanting a pair forever, but I couldn't justify spending extra money on a pair.  In my mind, if it's raining I'm not actually going to be outside except for running to & from the car and to & from the house/office.  BUT, I was wrong.  These wellies have been perfect for running errands on cold, damp Fall days. 

These pair are from Joules.  This company ROCKS!  Their selection of wellies, clothing & accessories for the whole family & cute stuff for the home is to die for!  The quality is amazing.
These wellies are really comfortable.  Definitely not like the ones I remember wearing as a kid!

The company is located in Britain... so they know rain!  It's obvious they've put a lot of thought into the design & wearability of all their products!

If you think these bee print wellies are cute you'll be happy to know they have them in a variety of prints & solid colors too!
