Happy Halloween!!!!

Here is Sydney in a few of her costumes, going to two different parties at school. And Trevor is wearing a shirt made by Finnjax*Designs (I haven't got him in his costume yet). Why the Disney theme, you may ask? Because we just got back from Disney and bought those for the trip. Also, notice the cobwebs in picture 3...I put them up and then we had an awful windstorm, and now they have to either be taken down or re-done. They looked great before the windstorm!!

Favorite Holiday Sets

Here are some of my favorite holiday sets that are on auction right now. There are so many cute ones out there that I just had to list some here. Do you have a holiday set already? The one I bought for last year fits this year, so I haven't bought anything new. I can't believe that Christmas is just around the corner!









"Holly Jolly" By BridgetAndCo

This new set by Debbie of BridgetAndCo is sure to be a Holiday favorite. I just love the apron style top with the ornaments in a bowl, and I am a sucker for jeans with applique. The little reindeer's putting up Christmas lights are so darn cute. But it doesn't stop there! Included in this auction is the gorgeous jumper dress too! The possibilities are endless with this set! If you have a moment, stop by and check it out. Click Here to go directly to Debbie's auction.

Finally Got My Boots!

You may love them, you may hate them. It is a love affair for me! I got my first pair of Ugg boots when I was pregnant with Sydney, 5 years ago, and it has been an obsession ever since. Once you slip your feet into these ultra-soft, cushy, boots you will never want to go back to wearing anything else! It feels as if you are walking on clouds! And when you are pregnant, like me, these boots are Heaven sent. So I got that first pair when I was preggo with baby #1, and now that baby #3 is on the way, I thought, hey, let mommy get a treat for her feet! It is actually an early Christmas present, because if you wait until Christmas to buy them you will be greatly disappointed. Last year Steve decided to wait until the beginning of December to go on the hunt for these boots I had been requesting for months, only to find that every store in America was sold out, at least of the size and color that I wanted. They just started putting them out at my local Nordstrom, and wouldn't you know that when I went in to see about getting my boots this year, that had none in the style I wanted out on display. When I inquired about them, they said they have been discontinued, and they will never be getting them in again. Well, I hadn't planned on buying them that very day, but when the sales person told me the only way to get my size, since there was only 5 more pair out there in the U.S., and that wasn't even guaranteed, was to pay for them and have them shipped to my house. Naturally, being in such a stressful situation, I had to do as the sales person suggested. I mean, seriously, I have wanted these boots for 2 years now! And finally, they have arrived! Right when my feet have started to feel the aches of pregnancy. I just had to share my joys with you! If you haven't felt the pleasure of these boots, please, go try them on, then you will know where I am coming from :)

A Happy Boot Owner
