Halloween Hangover. A New Month. And A New Look

You've read it a million times by now,'s November?!? How did that happen? I'm not ready for the holiday season and it will be here before we know it! Let's remember the fun of Halloween for another day!

The boys loved their costumes so much. 
D really really wanted to incorporate Charlie into his costume. 
He recycled one of his sister's old costumes.
Hot Dog Seller.
I hope this is the last year someone brings the dog trick or treating.

As much as Charlie loves to be carried around and wear a costume...
his look says it all. 
Although, it was nice not having him home to bark at every single trick or treater.

I was watching a morning talk show discussing age limits on trick or treaters.
I get it! I'm so hesitant to send out my kids who are in the 12-18 age bracket that some people think is too old for trick or treating.
On one hand, I think they need to give it up.
On the other hand, I'm thankful my kids are enjoying a safe, responsible, and innocent activity with their friends. 
Stay that way as long as possible!

I'm so sad Halloween Snapchat filters are gone :(
Which reminds many Snapchat deers did you see on Halloween?
I think we had 2 or 3 come to the door.
And all of them were equally cute!

This one was not cute but still loved it!

Here is a little something I've been working on...
I just chopped off all my hair to jumpstart my new look.
Can't wait to make more changes!

I took a little day trip to Wilmington this week. 
I explored Airlie Gardens and immersed myself in some major Southern atmosphere. Centuries old live oak trees covered in hanging moss, swans swimming in a lake, and Italian sculptures in overgrown flower gardens.
I think that is pretty much the epitome of Southern landscaping!

I'll do a overloaded picture post on Monday :)


  1. The costumes are pretty much amazing!!! :)

  2. I love the hot dog seller - so clever and I love that your dog is a good sport to go along with it!

  3. See, I don't mind kids trick-or-treating all the way through high school... as long as they dress up. The kids who are 16 or 17 and just wear a hoodie are the ones that ruin it for the older kids. If a high school senior comes up with a great costume and says "trick-or-treat" and "thank you" at my house, I think it's great. You're right, it is a safe, fun thing for them to do!

  4. I'd say let those kids trick-or-treat...there's so much trouble for kids to get into otherwise!
    I think I stopped with Halloween around 12 or 13.
    I adore a costume that incorporates a dog. Perfect!

  5. I am glad you still let the kids trick or treat! I am all about letting kids be kids for as long as possible.

  6. I am glad too that you let the kids trick or treat. I think that they should trick or treat until they graduate high school personally, because at least around here it keeps them from mischief. I do love the hot dog seller!
