November 1

Someone educate me on the history of Halloween. Whoever thought it was a good idea to give little kids candy for free is EVIL. Sugar high is the real deal.

I’ve never been a fan and it probably stems from the fact that my parents being paranoid Asians, never let me go because they thought all the candy would be poisoned…but even as an adult, I never once dressed up with my friends in hooker costumes aka lingerie. It all just seems like so much work! But alas, on Thursday Husband and I took off work a little early to take Caden trick or treating for the first time. Of course, my love/hate relationship with Pinterest was in full effect and instead of just grabbing a $15 costume at Target, I decided to take on the role as semi-Super Mom and make one. It ended up costing $20 for the material, but I think it turned out pretty dang cute!

Poor Caden was so confused at first when we came to the first door like a deer in headlights. He had such a confused face like “mom, who are these people, are we going in??”. After a few houses, he was a professional Trick or Treater!

And with Halloween now over, it is OFFICIALLY my favorite time of year bc Thanksgiving is around the corner!!! How the heck is it already November 1st? Time surely flies when you’re old.

And of course, my little man’s birthday is 2 weeks away. We’re going with a firetruck theme this year and am super excited to share the details!

Current Obsessions

The most important day of the year is this Sunday!  But I’m sure everyone has already been thinking about spoiling the special women in their lives for a while now.

It’s my 2nd Mother’s Day (technically 3rd since  I became a mama the minute I found out I was knocked up  – well, after the tears and dread, but that’s another post) and it really is the best club to be a member of.

I’ve requested a simple picnic at the park w/ my men so hopefully hubby, who is notoriously bad at planning, will step it up and at remember to pack some sandwiches or a couple of Capri Suns. Of course, a few extra goodies is always greatly appreciated and never hurts.
