Pumpkin Patch Time!

We took Julian to the pumpkin patch for the first time ever this year. Here are a few pictures from our adventure. 

Have you gone to the pumpkin patch yet with your little one? 



Once again our family has lost another member. My great grandmother (Mary) passed away a week ago and I took off work all last week for the funeral. My great grandmother was 90yrs old and I would like to think she lived a fulfilling life. I am thankful she got to meet Julian and that she was in my life. She taught me how to crochet, ride a tractor, make peanut brittle, not be a city girl, have faith, be strong and never give up! I love and miss you Granny! 

I also had MommyCon this weekend. Which in all my excitement for the actual event. I forgot to charge my phone and got no pictures of Julian an I in costume. I also realized I am the least assertive person ever when it comes to trying to talk to my blogger role models!!! Completely meant to fan girl my way to talk to Jamie the baby gear guy... I didn't. I think just getting to be in the room made me content. That or I was just so tired and worn out from the week. I did get these pictures though. 

I am so happy I got to go! I am even more blessed to have met some moms who are local and really sweet. I foresee future baby play dates!! Hopefully! 

What did you do this weekend?

Halloween crafting!

It's no secret I love the video game Zelda in all formats. I buy all video gaming consoles for the sole purpose of playing the new zelda games they come out with. So it should come as no surprise I am making Julian's Halloween costume to be Link and I am going to be Zelda! I am not done crafting everything and getting things together but here are some pictures of Julian's costume in the making! 

This is one of the many reasons I love being a mom! Also Halloween is my favorite holiday! :) 

What are you and your kids being for Halloween?

I must be crazy!

That or I have a death wish! I may possibly be getting a fourth job! Sounds crazy, I know. For those of you who weren't aware I did in home behavioral therapy with a little boy, before I had Julian. I just rejoined the therapy team this past month and I am helping a lady clean her house every week. 
I'd like a more reliable car and it won't happen with the one job. The fourth job is possibly a personal assistant position. Hopefully, I can juggle all this and not loose my mind. 

We make a lot of sacrifices as parents. I really have no social life besides talking to my co-workers at work. It's a sacrifice I'm okay with making. :) 

What sacrifices do you feel like you've been making lately?
