october leftovers

colder weather + a local coffee shop that makes a vegan pumpkin spice latte + no kids = wonderful date with my husband!

trips to the park up the street

a much needed haircut

this is the face i got when i asked him to smile for a picture :)

cute new hair

the durham skyline from the parking garage on our way to see willie nelson at the dpac!

a sea of old white people, haha. the show was amazing! it was by far the best performance i have seen to date, and i am so happy that danny went with me. he even smiled at a funny line in one of willie's songs. it was a good time. 

along the highway on the way home, we had a perfect view of the fireworks from the state fair. what a nice way to end a fun night.

the tree in our front yard has been dropping its walnuts for weeks now. this was the start of the clean up. we must have picked up hundreds of those damn nuts, haha.

cute halloween cupcake from whole foods

SILK NOG!! one of my favorite things about this time of the year! i had heard it was in stores and finally found some at walmart of all places (especially since we very rarely ever go there), so i bought all of them :)

i never got around to decorating for halloween. i kind of lost interest as soon as i pulled the bins down from the attic. but since our house has a halloween theme to it all year long, i guess it didn't matter. this is as festive as we got this october. i think once we eventually move again (hopefully into a house of our own), i will be more excited to decorate. this house has no covered porch, and little shelf space, so there isn't really anywhere to place decorations.

these three little figurines are the newest addition to my nightmare collection. i ordered them from the disney store and i love them so much!

and last but not least, my mother sent us another awesome halloween care package chuck full of all kinds of cute festive decor, baking supplies, candy, and toys etc. we always get so excited when she sends us stuff. the kids love to open the box and see what's inside. she is always so thoughtful, and despite how sick she has been the past few months, she took the time to make these decorative blocks for me! thanks again mom, i love them.


  1. what a sweet mom you have! those blocks are gorgeous!!! she's so clever!x

  2. if we lived anywhere in the vicinity of each other i would watch malcolm all the time so you and danny could go out <33333 win/win
