Halloween and C at 22 months

 Happy Halloween!! Isn't C the cutest little ladybug?? Yesterday we went to the hubs work to trick or treat and C had a blast, I am kind of glad because today is totally gloomy and a 100 percent chance of rain allllll day.  Last night we carved pumpkins and I decided to just do mine in a heart and the hubs did his in a typical scary face:

Today C wanted to wear a tutu so I put a bun in her hair and since it is halloween I decided it was probably fine and acceptable:

 C is 22 months today! Charlotte you love holding hands, giving kisses, playing with your babies, building blocks, reading books, all animals.  You are saying so many things, this month you learned how to say your last name, you speak in little sentences, and you love tutus.  You don't really love vegetables, going to sleep, or sitting still.  We love you to the moon and back little girl! You surprise me more and more every day with how much you pick up on, thank you for being the very best kid ever.  I love hanging out with you, and it is so fun discovering the world with you.

I have a problem. I am obsessed with taking pictures in the fall.  I like for real can't get enough.  Also my bangs were annoying me yesterday so I pinned them back.  The hubs took me on a date last night! We went to my favorite restaurant for dinner and then had drinks at the hubs fav place.  It was soooo nice to get out with him! I love just talking to him one on one, and we had 3 hours of us time it was perfect.  The hubs didn't tell me what we were doing and took charge it was awesome, I hope he does that more I really look forward to surprises sometimes!! I woke up at 1:45 in the morning after some CRAZY dreams with my heart racing and my cat standing on my chest creepily staring at me...rude.
Today we are going trick or treating at the hubs work, and then down town tmw morning, and then in our neighborhood tomorrow evening...candy overload.  I am so excited for C to wear her costume and also she is 22 months on halloween...TWO MONTHS AWAY from being two.

weekend recap

Last week on Friday we had a bff play date with S, and little M.  They played dress up, made forts, had a photo shoot, and watched movies.  It was the best day ever.  These little girls will be friends for life, they love each other so much.  I am just so glad I met S back in the day and we had babies a month a part.  On Saturday I left to go visit my bff OB in Cbus we always have so much fun together, it was such a quick trip and when I got back on Sunday we just laid around and got Chipotle and then had ice cream and pop corn...I love weekends like that!

My best friend S said to me once "you should have more fun with your significant other than you do with your best friend".  I think that is so true.  I have so much FUN with the hubs, and yeah sometimes we get so annoyed with each other, or we fight, or he leaves the toilet seat up, or I leave hair in the shower drain but we mostly just love being around each other and goofing off.  Nobody can make me laugh the way he can, or cheer me up, or just make me feel whole the way he can.  I love that he just lets me be super weird (and yeah he shakes his head at me) but he just lets me be myself, even if I feel like wearing my sweatpants up to my belly and talking in weird voices, or if I just want ice cream for dinner, or giving a concert in the shower.  He helps me with my homework, and the other day spent two HOURS helping me with a project.  He didn't have to, but he did.  He makes me dinner almost every night, and also cleans the litter box.  
I guess what I am trying to say is I just love you R, thank you for everything.

mini fall adventure

This morning the hubs let me sleep in until was glorious.  C woke up early I guess so he took her downstairs to play bc she woke up yelling "APPLE JUICE" and jumping on her bed apparently.  That girl cracks me up.  They came upstairs and C jumps on me and says "cereal mommy, stairs" and ran to the stairs.  She is talking more and more its so cute!  After breakfast we got coffee and went to this park near our house.  We were literally the only people there except some swans and ducks, it was awesome.  I had to take fall pictures the colors were amazing and I got some gems! The hubs was kind of in a hurry to get to work so it took like 5 minutes and off we went to take him to work.  I love fall.  It was so cold this morning though we were supposed to get snow but instead we got a super sunny day. I am glad we had a mini fall adventure, it really made today a good one! 

camel riding and other random thoughts

sweater: Francesca's, jeans: nordstrom rack, shoes: target

Outfit pics are so awkward! I cannot seem to ever figure it out.  The hubs just stands there making fun of my poses but I just don't have a signature pose yet! Oh well, guess I am not a true fashion blogger, whatever! I showered at 4 p.m. yesterday and wore this to class.   I am trying to be better about showering daily instead of every 2 days...its kind of working except on days I have 8 am physics lecture.  The hubs said it was a waste of wearing an outfit but I disagree, I can just wear it again since I only wore it for like 5 hours.  I am having such a great week! Other then the fact that the hubs and C are still sick.  I told C in the car today that I wanted to ride a camel and now that is all she will say "mommy ride camel?" over and over and over.  hahahahha.

my fun life

Ok so I suck at putting pics not on instagram on my blog, but in case you don't follow me on instagram here are some gems! Over the weekend the hubs got sick, so we mostly just stayed in and drank lots of tea.  We also went out and got coffee in the rain and these three older ladies were taking forever while the hubs was waiting to order that I brought C up front in the car with me and we took a pretend little "trip" it was obviously to pop pop's house and obviously her babies and Ellie her elephant came to visit.  I love little kids imaginations, it is so fun.  Also I got an ear pimple over the weeekend, srsly the worst kind ever in life to acquire.  On Monday we went over to our friend Beh-may (Bennett is his name thats just how C says it) and TeeTee's (Candice) house.  They love each other and Char got pancakes and popcorn and just indulged in every single toy B had.  Then today we picked the hubs up from work to go to lunch and we convinced him home was more fun and so he put C down for her nap yayy! Every day though without fail C decides to wait until I put her in her crib to poop.  So it takes up to an hour to get her to go to sleep.  I still haven't showered today. It is just such a fun life I lead.

date night

On Tuesday we had a date night! We haven't done one in so long so it was so so nice to get out and have dinner and drinks without C jabbering away (as much as we love her) she likes to keep saying our names over and over again while we try and have a conversation.  Anyways my mom friend got us a groupon (thank you C!!!) and off we went to a FOUR course meal.  We were so stuffed we could hardly move after that dinner, and I wished I had worn leggings...
I loved my outfit, and had a really great hair day, and I am SO HAPPY its scarf and boots weather again.  I asked the hubs what he thought the secret to marriage was and he said "I am not sure" and he asked me and I said "lots of wine" (kidding) and then we both said that we thought communication and date nights were the key.  I think getting away once a week is seriously MUCH needed.

holding hands

That love shirt is from Old Navy. I legit love it. It is one of the softest most comfy shirts I own.  I was so mad though because I by accident dried it and it shrunk so now I have to wear it with a tank top underneath.  I hate when I shrink stuff. One time I "borrowed" (I kind of took it from her closet when I was dog sitting once and planned on just wearing it once and putting it back...I know I suck) this dress from my BFF L and I wore it and it was the prettiest most unique dress ever...well I accidentally SHRANK it of course.  I literally thought it was the end of our friendship...thank god L is so understanding she forgave me and we are still friends.  but srsly what was I even thinking. I was not a good friend.  Sorry L, you are the best.  I really don't do that anymore or EVER again after that.  Promise you can still lend me stuff, and I won't "borrow" it and shrink it.  alskdfjasdkf. And for real why do I STILL do this to myself.  You would think I would learn.  C is srsly the cutest.  She is so cuddly and she loves holding my hand.  I literally almost cried today because she kept saying "hand Mommy, peas?" the girl kills me with cuteness.  I literally do not know what I did before she came along...oh wait I do: I was lazy, didn't have fabulous arm muscles, I never went to playgrounds, and I didn't think I needed some little person to hold my hand and give me sweet messy kisses on the reg.

pumpkin patch

What a whirlwind weekend! I had to work super late Friday night so Saturday morning the hubs let me sleep in it was so great.  That day we went to the pumpkin patch it was a perfect day, except we lost track of time and didn't get home until like 7...which is usually bath time for C but she had dinner then and apparently she was up until 10 yelling and laughing.  Oops. Oh well it was a perfect friend J took most of the pumpkin pics! Then Sunday morning the hubs let me sleep in AGAIN and we went to a few playgrounds and just soaked up the beautiful weather.  I am going to have a hard time with Monday after this weekend.
