Gangsta!! (yeah, in my dreams!)
He held his little bag for "fish" the entire party, and was really excited once candy went in there.

Can't wait to see all of your little one's costumes!
Blue Tunic: Old Navy. Want the whole story? Well, you're getting it anyway. I had been thinking about getting the hubs to get me a coat for my b-day. Then, I won a $50 off $100 purchase coupon from Old Navy. I went and found a coat that I LOVE for $90, this top, and 2 other things (can't say...they're for Christmas), all for $60. I was so excited!
Fashion Friday is brought to you by the always fashionable, Summer.
This book covers all the basis. Basics, including routine, foods and favs, emergency info, medical info, a section for babysitters to take notes, and parents to keep all the sitter info. There are things that I have never thought about leaving for a sitter, but they just make so much sense! All you have to do is fill in the blanks on the pages that look like this.
The book is available as a hardcover book, or an e-book. I got the e-book version. It is a 100 page book, split into 5 sections, that I got in Google Documents. I just had to print off what I wanted, and put it into a cute binder. I never have to scribble a list of things down on Hannah Montana paper and leave it for the sitter again. I bought the paper for the hubs as a joke and I am the one embarrassingly using it.
I am a bit of a perfectionist. This book is great so when something changes, I can just print or purchase a new page instead of scratching stuff out. Cooper turns 2 and starts eating peanuts? New page. New emergency contact digits? New page. New bedtime? New page! Get it?
This book is PERFECT if you use a sitter, have family or friends keep your kids, or lets face it, for your forgetful husband. Last night my hubby put Cooper down and "forgot" to change his diaper, brush his teeth or wash his face. Should have left the book out for him!
So all you need to do it go check this book out!

Wordful Wednesday is brought to you by Angie at:
First, it's cold. Well, relatively cold. I'm so sorry for you sweet peeps that are already fighting the snow and frigid temps, while I gripe about it being 45 here. The good news is, I have had 2 cups of hot chocolate, and I am happily wrapped in my Snuggie. Shocked I would have this? See how it happened here.
We are supposed to get rain tonight. CRAZY! It hasn't rained here in months, so I am kindof excited. I am the proud owner of this beauty, so I always hope for a chance to use it.
Although, I desperately need a tan, and that rain means I'm not getting it. This time of year is so hard as I grieve the loss of my summer glow. Doesn't everything just look better when it's tan?
Next, I'm freakin tired. I took a nap yesterday and today, slept a good bit last night, and still, I literally couldn't move my badonkadonk off the couch today. I had to hire a tiny man to prop one of my eyes open so Cooper didn't leave the house. Maybe it's just motherhood. Maybe the exhaustion from the hubs being gone for 6 days last week is catching up. Maybe I drank too much wine in Napa over the weekend and I am in a 2 day hangover. Humm. Does that happen?
We did get to slip away on a date night over the weekend while the in-laws watched Cooper. We went to see Couple's Retreat. It wasn't as funny as I had hoped for, so I say wait and rent it on DVD. What is the world coming to when you can't count on Vince Vaughn to make you pee your pants from laughing?

Alright. I'm ready for it.
