Hello my loves! I hope you all are having a great weekend. It’s been a minute since i’ve done a Life Lately post so today i’m sharing all kinds of October randomness I found on my camera roll so here we go…..
We still aren’t into the pumpkin carving stage yet but I have to say pumpkin decorating this year was a HIT! I just picked up a few of the pumpkin decorating kits from target (with jewels, spikes and googly’ eyes) and the kids had a blast putting them together! (and for those of you asking on Instagram about our table and chairs.. It’s This One HERE. We’ve had since Ava was a bady and LOVE it!
and look how cute they turned out!
Luca rearranging our haunted graveyard on the daily 😉
ps in SoCal because of the drought you’re supposed to let your yard go brown
Repeat Trips to the Patch
The Halloween Shop inside Rogers Gardens is always a must
Halloween calls for mommy’s “Spoooooky” pancakes.
I’m so excited that Ava is at an age where she is really into all these little festive treats I make for her ;))
I really wanted to switch up my mantel design from last year but I just love all my current pieces so much that I just ended up putting them up again. For those of you asking on instagram the Trick or Treat banner is from Target, The black skulls are actually candles from Target but I just never light them. The black crows are from Pottery Barn, The candle bras are from Michaels and the skeleton hand is from Roger’s Garden.
I seriously had the BEST Halloween this year because my hubby (aka MR. Bah HumBug) actually volunteered to dress up for his work Halloween party! We had way so much
tequila fun! 😉 …. So much fun that we didn’t get a good before pic but I shared tons of snaps on SnapChat.
I kept my oufit super simple with a floral maxi dress from Forever21, This floral headband and my go to Faux Leather Moto Jacket (under $100)
Ava is obsessed with baking and crafts right now so I signed her up for a little Halloween cake pop cooking class and she had The Best time!
My little Butterfly Princess xo
I look forward to the days when we get to do the whole family themed costumes (and kudos to you mamas who put them together already!) but honestly with a very strong willed little girl and 20 mth old it’s just too much work at this point. Our meme sent the most adorable and detailed Elsa costume and Ava refused to wear it because it was too itchy. So she decided she wanted to be a butterfly and FYI the wings didn’t even make it out of the house. lol
and i’ve kind of been waiting my whole life to get Luca in one of this little muscle suits! Seriously the sweetest!
Trick or Treating!
and October that’s a wrap! I hope you girls all had a beautiful festive one! Now here’s to Thanksgiving and trying to convince my hubby that a 5 hour flight with Luca back East to see my family won’t be that bad 😉 Wish me luck!!
