Yep you read it right! AJ and I have been keeping a secret (from social media) for the past 16 weeks, but we’re ready to spill the beans!
We are so excited to announce that we will be welcoming another little baby into our family in April. This has been the hardest secret to keep from all of you, but we wanted to make sure we were out of “the danger zone” before we announced to the world.
I am so blessed to once again be able to share this journey with my best friend. She found out just a few weeks after me that she was also expecting another little bundle!
I can’t wait to share this journey with all of you!
Anytime I can wear a sweatshirt out and still look cute and put together, I’m all for it!!
Good Morning friends! Now that I’m older, I don’t dress up for Halloween like I used to (especially when it falls on a Tuesday. Let’s be real). My focus is now on what my little one will be wearing and what time we need to leave the house for trick-or-treating in order to make it home in time for bedtime. Ha! How times have changed. Even though I won’t be dressing up this year, It’s still fun to do a little something so you feel like you are participating in the festivities.
I wasn’t about to go buy anything. You would be surprised at what you can come up with, with things you already have around the house. This day of the dead inspired look only takes 4 products, all of which I already had in my arsenal! You can even take it up a notch on Halloween by pulling your hair back into a low bun, and throwing on a long floral dress.
I started with a fresh face. Just some mascara and eyeliner (don’t judge me people)!
I then used a mixture of dark grey, black, and blue eye shadows all around my eyes and black eyeliner to line the inner rims. For my mouth and nose, I used black liquid eyeliner with a fine tip. Lastly, I used my contour stick (no blending required) to create depth on my cheek bones. Easy!
We’ve almost made it!! Tomorrow is Friday! What do you have planned this weekend? The weather isn’t looking too promising here in Seattle, so most likely we will just be relaxing at home. Hope you have a great weekend!

Fall has arrived! The leaves are changing, and pumpkins are ripe for the picking! Don’t hide under a blanket all season, get out and enjoy this time of year with someone special! We had a little one in tow with us (rightfully so) at the patch this weekend, but whether you have kids or not there’s plenty to do! I’ve rounded up a list of date night ideas for you! Kids optional 🙂
1.) Test your knowledge with Trivia Night at your local restaurant or pub
2.) Wander through a corn maze, and if you’re feeling brave go a night when it’s haunted
3.) Go apple picking (bonus points if you bake a pie or make cider after)
4.) Watch a scary movie (It is still in theaters 🙂 )
5.) Go to a football game
6.) Brave your way through a haunted house
7.) Visit a fall festival
8.) Take a scenic hike
