Happy Halloween!! (2017)

There’s a dragon on the loose!! I honestly felt bad that I didn’t do more of a DIY costume this year, but Maya saw this mask and tail at Goodwill, and it was game over.

Honestly, I didn’t have time to make anything this year, so in a way I was relieved.  Last year’s DIY costume (OMG, is it possible that I didn’t BLOG IT?!!) was super fun, but wow…time consuming and a bit stressful.  Houston took her over to my In Laws early so they could see her in her costume.  Probably the only actual people to see her since she will be wearing a super warm jacket tonight! Every Part of her costume was thrifted.

On Maya…
Leotard- Bloch (thrifted)
Skirt- Hanna Andersson  (thrifted)
Sequined Leggings- A Children’s Place
Boots- Timberland

Mask , Tail, and Wings- Goodwill



Remlinger Farms “Fall Harvest Festival” | For Maya’s 5th Birthday

We went to Remlinger Farms for Maya’s 4th birthday last year (SO fun looking back on those pics!!), and we had such a good time that we went back again a few weeks later!

This year, I asked her…

“Would you rather have a birthday party with all your friends, or go back to Remlinger Farms with family?”

She chose Remlinger Farms with family again-YAY!!

I was a little nervous if she would have as much fun as she did the year before.  I shouldn’t have been worried… 🙂
