End of October & Life Lately


Brrrrrrr.....Kansas City is under a winter weather advisory this morning. Magnolia went to bed with so much anticipation about the snow headed our way. I woke up to her yelling "IT'S SNOWING IT'S SNOWING!!!" as she peeked out the windows. She ran to her room & got her snow suit, came back and had the whole day planned, with snowman building & lots of hot chocolate on the agenda. We don't even have an inch yet and she is on our deck - in her sandals & Christmas nightgown - crunching around in it!!! She's singing "Let it Go" and my heart can barely handle it. I know she is dreaming about the snow castle she wants to build with her tiny little hands, just like Elsa did in Frozen. I also look at her & feel amazed by her passionate love of the cold & give credit to the fact that she was once frozen time. Our little IVF golden egg miracle!!!

Just the Start of October


Heyyyyyy, FRIENDS!!! October in the Midwest is pure magic. The cool autumn breeze + golden leaves falling to the ground makes it just the absolute best. October is always my very favorite month of the year & also our wedding anniversary month. We picked an October wedding date for a reason.  It's so crazy looking back on this year. This month has been the polar opposite of April. We have been on the go-go-go almost every single day. As always I have a phone full of photos I've taken to save moments in time & I just have to share some of them now before I have a huge book.

Spooky Halloween Exterior with Huge Spiders, Bats, and Mums


This year I was counting down the days for October first to arrive! We put huge outdoor spiders all over our freshly painted white house, with a group of bats, over 150 pounds of pumpkins, and the biggest mums of all time!!! I've heard the neighborhood kids love the spooky spiders & nothing makes my heart happier. At the end of this post I'll link the spiders & bats we ordered from Amazon. And if you're wondering how we installed them, we did it a little different than what we read online about using fishing wire. And by we, I mean Ryan, did it a little different. He tried the fishing wire technique first and it didn't work. Exterior command hooks + zip ties to the rescue! Once he successfully got the first one up it was a breeze from there.
