Life Lately

It's Friday, Ellie was sound asleep by 7:30 p.m., I got to enjoy an entire bowl of my favorite ice cream all by myself, the rain is coming down like crazy and I am just hoping the power doesn't go out before my freshly washed sheets come out of the dryer!  Also hoping Ellie is so sound asleep that the thunder + lighting doesn't wake her up tonight... not even once. ;)  

We have a quiet weekend planned and I am very excited about that.  After we clean our house for what feels like the nine hundredth showing tomorrow morning (but is maybe more like the tenth? I definitely lost count after the first week), we are heading to Target to check out all the Christmas stuff!!  Yes, SO very excited. :)  As for our house, we are keeping our fingers (and toes) crossed that we have good news soon.  The thing about being on the other side of the house hunting equation this time around is that you really don't realize as a buyer that for every minute you spend looking at house, there were at least five minutes spent cleaning it and making sure it looks "presentable".  At least. Needless to say, even though it hasn't been that long, we are looking forward to seeing some light at the end of the tunnel.  Also, as much as Tyler loves having Mickey Mouse as his co-pilot, I'm sure he would prefer to have his truck's backseat free of all the excess toys from the living room we packed in there a month ago. ;)

I hate to be a party pooper over here, but I'd be lying completely if I said I wasn't completely over Halloween right now.  And it's not even because I've had one too many tiny boxes of Milk Duds (if there even is such a thing?!), because somehow we have yet to buy a single bag of Halloween candy this season.  I'm just looking forward to a slightly more fun (merrier, if you will) holiday season!  I know, but I can't even help it.  As for Ellie's Halloween costume, I am planning to pull stuff together from her existing wardrobe and run with it... although,  I am kind of loving this swan dress that just came out.  Cute, right??  We did a little "practice" trick-or-treating this week and I totally feel like any saying that involves the phrase "smell my feet, give me something good to eat" is right up this girl's alley.  If you know her personally, you will definitely agree. :)


Since it's Friday, one of my many favorite finds this week are all of these basics for babies + toddlers!  Something about these solid colored jammies is especially appealing to me.  PLUS, there is a color for every holiday. :)

Lastly, finishing up the most random post ever, is quite possibly one of the cutest Ellie looks yet! ;)  Obsessed with her perfect little ponytail earlier this week and currently scheming how I will ever get another one in her hair without letting her play fully-clothed in the bathroom sink.  Anyone else's kids hate (like end of the world kinda hate) when you touch their hair?  Maybe one day she will enjoy it...?


I guess that's enough ramblings for now.  Hope you all have a fun weekend! :)
