Did everyone enjoy their Halloween weekend?? I honestly was never much of a fan of Halloween in the past. I mean, I have always appreciated an excuse for a party; but I've just never been one of those people that can whip up a great costume for the occasion or was ever too excited about the excuse of showing off my midriff. Now that I have kids, it certainly brings a bit more excitement to the holiday and like before; I still love the excuse to enjoy a party!! So this year, we dressed up, trick -or-treated and had a great party.
Friday evening was spent at home with wine and cheese. #wild
And then we had a first for these two! We put Madelyn in the bath with Brody and I was totally digging it. Anything that helps streamline our nighttime routine is a plus in my book these days! Don't you think she's starting to look so much like her big brother too???
Saturday we ran out to breakfast and then rushed around for a few last minute things for our Halloween night. We were heading to our friends house for Halloween this year and for the 2nd half of the Florida vs. Georgia football game! We left Madelyn at home with my MIL while we took Brody to the party and to do his first round of trick-or-treating.
I had to snap a few pictures of the kids together in their Halloween costumes before we left for the party. They totally nailed it, don't you think?? This is the first year we've been able to get a decent picture of Brody in his costume, so I was thrilled!
We kissed Madelyn goodbye, ordered our Uber, and off we went. I put together a "Blue Angel" costume to go with my little pilot! I was really into this blue hair and considering taking it for a spin every now and then...what do you think?? :)
My Rocksbox order this month totally nailed it and made for the perfect accessories for my costume. I haven't shared my Rocksbox goodies in awhile, but I always enjoy getting a few new fun pieces of jewelry each month. My favorite this month was the Margaret Elizabeth Tear Drop Bangle. If you're interested in a free month of Rocksbox, go sign up and use code: ANNIEBFF9. I get a free month of you sign up too, so thank you ahead of time :)
My outfit all together (minus my wings) with my cute little pilot!
The best family picture we could capture.
This was what our attempt to go trick-or-treating really looked like!! As soon as we got all loaded up to take the kids out, the bottom fell out and the rain came a pouring...
Thankfully our kids are still young enough that they really didn't know what they were missing out on yet. They didn't like getting wet, so we headed home, threw them in the tub, put them in some warm PJ's and us parents enjoyed some cocktails and football while these love birds entertained each other!! I'll call that a win in my book...
And today I was reminded of this quote as all I wanted to do was eat hamburgers, pizza and chocolate all day long.... The diet starts tomorrow :)
