life lately

The temps are finally dropping enough to where we need flannel sheets on our beds and chili seems like a fitting dinner at least twice a week. We have been taking as many walks as we can with the girls, crunching all the leaves and soaking up the sunshine in the backyard before the snow flies. Fall here goes from beautiful to cold quick, so I am pulling out all the girls' winter knits, cozy socks and warm jackets for the weeks ahead.

This past weekend we fit in a date night on Friday, a girls' night complete with charcoal masks and a taco salad bar and photos & a chili dinner with my team from Revolution on Sunday evening. Saturday was rainy and cold, so it was the perfect day for sleeping in (thanks to my husband that has become my Saturday morning routine), a lazy afternoon at home and then my girls night. I didn't get home until 2am on Saturday night and still wonder how I used to stay up that late every night in college!! 

Poppy, Della and I took a trip to a new apple orchard last week while Olivia was at school and we hope to take the girls to a pumpkin patch this weekend. Talk about cutting it close!! On Sunday night we have Trunk or Treat at Olivia's preschool and both Poppy and Olivia asked to be cats this year, which thankfully for me is very easy. They haven't wanted to take off their cat ears since they arrived. We plan to carve pumpkins on Monday night, roast the pumpkin seeds and bake a jack-o-lantern pizza, one of our favorite traditions! We haven't decided what we will do on Halloween night, if we will trick or treat in our neighborhood or go somewhere but either way, I am going to be sneaking all the fun size butterfingers from their stash!

It's hard to believe we are already nearing November, and I feel like my calendar is filling up with holiday plans & Christmas parties quickly. There is one week left to use the code ABLESSEDNEST for 15% off your purchase from Gathre {grid midi pictured above}. Tacos are on the menu tonight and hopefully an early bedtime for everyone!! Happy Tuesday!
