What I Wore Wednesday – Trick Or Treat

We have had a busy week with all of the Halloween festivities in full swing.  I have found myself almost constantly in skinny jeans with boots and flowing tops now that the weather has gotten a little colder.  For me, the combination is perfect for my day to day tasks and for hauling the kids to and fro.  I’m loving the cozy scarves boots, and layers.  It has become my go to quick option in the mornings, which is a huge step up from my old yoga pants and over sized sweatshirts a few months ago. First of all Happy Halloween to you all!  Hope you are enjoying some fun family time...

Friday:  Running errands, visiting family, and dinner out with the hubby. I love this jersey black...

Make And Play With Halloween Colored Playdough

I am always looking for ways to make our normal play extra exciting for the kids.  Halloween is the perfect time to turn normal craft and play times into holiday fun and excitement.  We love playing play dough in our house.  I haven’t purchased play dough from the store for  a couple of years, and instead we make it at home.  Making homemade play dough  is cheap, easy and  a great way to get the kids in the kitchen.  Making it in fun festive colors turns it into the perfect Holiday activity for kids. I love making play dough at home with the kids for a few reasons. 1.  When...
