It's Halloween today and most likely snowing here right now (!), so I'm probably bundled up to my teeth in down jackets and Sorel boots, while my children prance around as mini Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Anna from Frozen. They like showing off how they are completely impervious to the cold in their quest for CANDY, while I die in the frozen tundra behind them. How do they DO that?
Now what is my secret for surviving Halloween? Confiscate
some most of their amazing candy for myself and hide it in the freezer! They never even notice, and mama gets her chocolate fix. Ha!
While I'm stuffing my face with sweets (and guiltily going to the gym to work it all off), here are some super funny and amazing things I've seen/read/want to wear around the interwebs this week:
I DARE you to watch Death Metal Rooster and not cry with laughter! My brother introduced me to it last weekend at his house, and am still dying over it. It's epic;)
Rebecca from Mommy in Heels is the QUEEN of layering (and making it look awesome!) in my opinion. She nails it every single time. Love her!
Megan from Chasing Davies makes knits look so fresh and different when she layers them in pretty colors. She's my hero;)
I love the ideas from Ashley from The Shine Project on what do do when Life Attacks You, something that I really needed this week.
My friend Samantha from The Samantha Show is fierce and sassy and one fun mama, and this post proves it. PLUS, the photos are just gorgeous!
I'm not typically someone who participates in blog themes and such, but Kristen from the Mrs and the Mama has such a great idea for a November Blogathon (check out her themes for the month!) I am SO in, and I hope you check it out and join me, too.
Here are 40 things that will make you feel old, especially if you grew up in the 90's. Which I did. And now I feel old(er)…do you?!
I adore this idea from a Jo from A Cup of Jo about home being a haven for our children. Consider me inspired.
And in case you missed it…
Do you want to win a pair of Tahitian Pearl stud earrings?
How I'm working my way to a grateful heart.
And, three ways to wear knits this Fall (and avoid a jacket…for now!)
Tell me, what struck your fancy today?
Hope your weekend is a good one!
