Happy Halloween weekend, gals! Normally I’m not a huge fan of this holiday because I am a total scaredy-cat! But I do love seeing Davis and his friends in their costumes. And I am currently addicted to M&Ms, which feels less like cheating since they come in the tiny trick or treat size bags. 😉
ONE: This last week has been monumental for us! Of course my FAVORITE thing about this week…heck…of all of 2016, is welcoming our second sweet baby boy! I posted tons of pictures from the hospital and his first few days on my blog last night. Here are a few more since being at home.
TWO: On Wednesday the 4 of us managed to get out of the house to vote! It took us forever and a day to get ready, but we did it. Early voting is simple, and quick. Even if you aren’t a fan of either presidential candidate (this election year has given me anxiety-yikes!), it’s at least important to vote for who you believe you want to have an impact on the Supreme Court and legislation the next four years. Also, there are several other government offices that are a part of this election. So go use your rights as an American citizen and make your voice heard.
Three: We have a few fun things planned for Halloween this weekend and Monday. My outfit, courtesy of The Honor Roll, is picked out. It’s going to be warm here, so light layers should work well. And of course Davis can’t wait to wear his costume! All of a sudden he has decided that he is obsessed with dinosaurs. Last week Todd asked him if he was sure he still wanted to be a fireman for Halloween (he’s been saying this for a couple months, even though that’s what he dressed up as last year). Well, last Wednesday he had apparently changed his mind from fireman to dinosaur, and I frantically got online and ordered this costume. (It’s from Party City). I don’t mind the change because he’s got to be the most fun little dino ever!
Four: I wanted to share a couple beauty products that have recently become not just favorites, but MUST-HAVES, for me.
First, a cooler weather neutral nail color: OPI Don’t Bossa Nova Me Around. I had a gel manicure done in this color a couple weeks ago and I was immediately obsessed. It’s a beige-ish color with a tiny hint of lavender, and gray. It looks pink in the picture, but it’s not once it’s on your nails. Definitely ordering a bottle for at-home manicures!
Second, magic in a bottle! Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray is amazing, and I wish I had tried it years ago! It gives body and texture to my flat, stick-straight hair, making it easier to curl and style. Plus it smells like a hair salon, like you’ve really done something right on your hair that day. 😉 You can buy a small can to try it out, or go for the full size (or here) – wish I had gone the big can – it’s a better deal!
Five: Coffee is my friend again. While I was pregnant I drank mostly decaf coffee. Every once in a while I would do half and half, and a few times I had a cup of regular coffee. But now that we have a newborn who has had his days and nights flip-flopped, I’ve had to bring some caffeine back into my life! I still brew a pot of mixed decaf-regular, but that extra jolt does get me going in the morning! Where would mamas be without their beloved coffee?!?
Thank you all for stopping by! Enjoy your weekend!
