Stilettos and Diapers: October 2010


Even a 2 year old needs fashion options.

I am seriously loving getting ready for Halloween this year.
Last year, Cooper was a bit freaked to go door to door with his little friend.
{He had yet to realize that strangers aren't scary enough to miss out on candy}

This year, he's got "trick-or-treat, give me some candy" down pat.

I couldn't choose when I was searching for outfits last year and bought 3. He's going to choose 1 for the "trunk-or-treat" at our church, then 1 for going around the neighborhood on Halloween.

Option #1 - Lion

{This pic is mid growl}

Option #2 - Chicken

{I think Coop is partial to this one}

Option #3 - Monkey

{His room is a monkey theme and he's always loved them}

I'm going to let him choose, but I have my favorites! Hehe.

Now, what do we do about kids coming to our house when we walk around the neighborhood? We both want to go, so I think we'll leave a tray on the porch. Is that lame?

It's FRIDAY y'all!!

I am leaving the house tomorrow for the first time this week to go CAR SHOPPING! I so can't go without a car anymore. Sheesh. Hope you have a fab weekend!


Chocolate Dipped Candy Corn Rice Krispie Treats

Last week, Michelle over at A Little Tipsy made the most adorable fall treat.
I decided I had to make them with Cooper!

Melt 3 Tbsp butter, then add 1 package of marshmallows and melt completely.
stir in
8 drops of yellow food coloring and 2 drops of red food coloring
stir in
6 cups of Rice Krispies
Press into round cake pan
{I used 2}
Cut into triangles, then round edges into the shape of candy corn
Melt 1/2 cup of white chocolate with 1/2 tsp crisco
{I used the melt chocolate option on my microwave}
Spoon onto the small end of your "candy corn"
Repeat with chocolate and spoon onto large end
Allow chocolate to harden in the refrigerator...then EAT!
Keeping baby wipes close by for post consumption.

Wordful Wednesday - Pumpkin overload

Last weekend we headed to the Pumpkin Festival in Circleville, Ohio. It was a blast!
{What screams fall like candy apples?}
The pumpkin king was over 1600 lbs!
{Coop and his stroller buddy, cousin Avery}
{Leave it to my brother to make a goof face}
{Coop picking out his cheap fair toy that already broke}
Did we eat? Ummm, YES! Pumpkin funnel cakes were the best!
{And everyone agreed}
{Including Miss Ave}
{And Coop who was covered in powdered sugar}
{And thanks to the hubs, there's photo proof that I love to eat}
{Bro-in-law, brother, nephew, mom, niece}
{I was the tallest (due to 4" heels) but my baby sis was standing on her toes}
It was a fab 48 hour trip and I was so happy to see my fam!

Wordful Wednesday is now brought to you by:


Closet digging fashion

I was inspired after the Mom's Fashion File twitter party to pull out the tunics. (And ya know, you should totally go follow them and get on board with some fab mommy style) There was so much talk of skinnies with flowing tunics and boots that I couldn't stop myself from a little closet plunge.

I found this tunic that my Mom bought me probably 3 years ago and fell in love all over again.

Paired with my fave F21 dark wash skinnies.

Madden Girl boots from Macy's.Photobucket
Charlotte Russe stackable rings.
This outfit is rediculously comfy and my hair is even day old curls with a couple bobby pins on the side. Lazy much? Ummm, totally.

Hope y'all had a fantastic weekend! I have oodles of pics from our weekend in Ohio to show you later this week. I went crazy pumpkin overboard.

Happy Monday!


Who needs a lot of pumpkin in their life?

I love fall and I love pumpkin. Hellooooo, pumpkin spice latte.

That's why somewhere that has 1,600 lb pumpkins, a 400 lb pumpkin pie, pumpkin donuts, pumpkin burgers, pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin soups, pumpkin waffles, pumpkin fudge, pumpkin milkshakes...ok, ya got's right up my alley.

Today we are taking a road trip and heading to the little city of Circleville, Ohio for their annual pumpkin festival. I am so excited! My entire family is meeting there and we are meeting up with my sisters hubs whole family. Yeehaw!
Apparently, we really like food festivals. Last year it was the Gilroy Garlic Festival in California. Which was a blast, although, the foods weren't as appealing as PUMPKIN!

I've been once before but the hubs has never been. If any of you know southern Ohio, you know its southern. Like its a displaced southern state. My brother-in-law has more of an accent than I do! Not sure how they feel about gun racks, or deer hunting, but in my mind, its a little like home.

I'm hoping I can sneak in a little shopping time with my sistas, too! How am I supposed to have fashion post when I haven't been shopping in a month?!?! This, my friends is MAJOR. I am craving a serious shopping trip.

Hope you all have an AMAZING weekend!

PS. Thanks to all my twitter friends that had my back yesterday after I found out about some serious blog copy cat business. I'm being a big girl, and in the meantime, I am now the proud owner of!


Get me outta here!!!

We have serious issues. I think the medical diagnosis would be caraholic. You can read the proof here.

Well, we've done it again. Gone and sold a car without a backup and now I'm stranded.


I need to shop. I'd be almost happy with just a drive with the windows open.

My house is spotless.

I haven't even showered today, because I know I'm not going anywhere.

And I know I never want to be under house arrest. EVER.


Today was a fairytale.

Some days being a stay at home mom is hard. Like no one ever told me how exhausted I would be every. single. night.

But some days, are like today.
Your child decides to wake up saying "I love you, mommy".

People comment everywhere you go on how well behaved he is.

He smiles and waves and holds your hand without fighting when you cross the street.

We spent the morning running errands in the rain with our galoshes.

We spent the afternoon watching a movie and snuggling while eating popcorn.
Then we made pumpkin cookies and ate icing right out of the tub.
{You've got a smile that takes me to another planet}
{Can you feel this magic in the air}
I think God gives days like this to make me remember how incredibly blessed I am. To make me slow down and take more time to enjoy my days with my little man.
To smile, hug and kiss more.

{Fell in love when I saw you standing there}

To be grateful for my family. For life itself.

CSN giveaway coming!

Just FYI, y'all.

I will be doing a CSN giveaway here very soon. And its good. And Christmas is coming and you'll want it. So go check out CSN and get pumped. Maybe you'll find some dining room chairs you can't live without. Or a new zebra rug. I have my eye on the Fisher-Price Smart Cycle for the little man.

Did I mention its a good giveaway? Yay!


Don't wanna be all by myself.

Coop and I have been all alone this week while hubs has been on a business trip to Chicago.

I couldn't tell you people of the Internet because I was sure some creeper was going to get me in my sleep.

This was the first time we've stayed alone here in the new house. One things for sure, being alone in a 3rd floor apartment is way less scary than a house with 3 floors and lots of windows. I checked the closets, showers and locks more times than I can count. Thank God hubs travel is way less than it was in California, or else, I would have to get a room mate. Seriously.

I freaked out when we we're in Target and Cooper kept announcing that daddy was in Chicago. I watched in the rear view mirror the whole way home to make sure no one was following me. Paranoid, much? Poor Coop asked no less than 504 times if we could go to Chicago, too. I guess that will be a trip in the making!

In other news, my Internet won't work. We have the little broadband cricket jobber and for some reason today, it quit working. I may blog online, but that's about all I know how to do. Fixing will have to wait for the hubs. I'm just using our new iPad right now, which is awesome, but I haven't figured out how to upload pics yet. See, I have no clue about these things.

This afternoon, we're going to pick hubs up and head home to a Friday night of wine and Chinese takeout. I'm so excited!

Happy weekend, y'all! I'm hoping I can give you some post that are a bit more exciting next week!


Don't be tardy in your cardi.

You know when you're shopping and you see something that just completes you? You feel like its "the one" and you know your heart will stop if you don't take it home and have your way with it?

I sure hope I'm not the only one who has these feelings towards clothes.

It was way more than I wanted to spend but then I saw it was on sale and I HAD to buy it. When I was about to check out I was still feeling a bit guilty. Then a girl in front of me asked if I wanted to use her extra coupon.

I practically frenched her and any guilt I had just eased away.

Yesterday, I tweeted,

"I just got the best sweater/cardi in all creation from Banana Republic. I plan on living the entire winter in it."

Thats exactly what my plans are for this new soul mate of mine.
{I couldn't get blogger to upload pics so I used Photobucket and woah nelly, they're huge.}
{Hello, hump day makeupless face}
{This one had Coop's blurry little morning face in it, but it got chopped it off when I posted. Boo.}
So if you need me, you'll find me snuggled up in my new bff. All winter long.
