one. halloween 2016 recap
I took so few pictures, it didn't warrant an entire post... sad, right?!?!?! It could be that my littles were so amped up on sugar that I could barely catch them, so yes, we will go with that. Original plans were changed right before trick-or-treating, so Caroline decided against Elena of Avalor and went back to old faithful Elsa, while our little genie stayed true to her love of all things Jasmine.
We had a few friends and Mimi and Pappy over and Jeff made chili... we headed out in the neighborhood around 6PM and made our way in the chilly [haha yeah right, it was 85 degrees] and then came home to hand out more goodies to the other trick-or-treaters... a fun night of ghouls, ghosts, and goblins!
two. 15 ways to show gratitude this month
Since Tuesday, the girls and I have been taking thankfulness and gratitude and I can't help but smile at the things they have already said they are thankful for.. Caroline of course started out strong with "God" as her answer the very first day, while Carson mentioned that she was thankful for her makeup... you win some, you lose some. I stumbled upon this article the other day and wanted to share... 15 Ways to Show Gratitude This Month via The Glitter Guide.

I've been doing a bit of closet cleanout over the past few weeks, so I treated myself to a couple new items here and there of new pretty and colorful tones for fall. Here are a handful of new looks and goodies I added to the wardrobe:
four. one room challenge
Do any of you follow the One Room Challenge for design bloggers???!?! It's been in existence for a few years now and I get SO excited to watch these bloggers design an entire room, from start to finish, in just a mere six weeks... CRAZY right? I've been watching the latest round of rooms and there are a few I am absolutely LOVING... listing their links below for you to checkout too.
You know it's coming... the endless gift guides from every blogger under the sun, and I will absolutely be participating, because you know I love any good reason to shop online and help you find the best gifts of the season, BUT I am here to ask you what you want to see in these roundups: help me help you. Looking for tech gifts, tell me... want something a bit more special and unique? Leave a comment below. Needing to surprise the kids' teachers with something other than what everyone else will gift?? I can tackle that, too. Come on, I am a problem solver/shopper so send me all your wants and wishes :)
