Save the Best... for Friday!

We had a wonderful week full of pumpkins, nice weather and lots of fun.  Nothing super special; just memory making and family time.  We made pumpkins, ate pumpkins and watched shows about pumpkins on TV.  Holiday themed things are so much fun.  

The best parts of our week were...

1. Happy Halloween from my little strawberry!!
I wasn't sure what Olive would think of wearing her costume, but she adores it.  It's soft and she keeps finding the hat and shoes and brings them to me to put on her.  I hope she loves it tonight for the Halloween party/trick-or-treating we are planning on doing.

 2. Target shoes are 25% off for the whole family this week with your cartwheel app!!  I bought these boots for myself and Olive got some sparkly shoes for winter.  They

 3. We had fun doing some kitty footprints.  Olive thought it tickled to have her foot painted, but did a great job with it.  The cats turned out great!!  We sent a few cards out to family and saved one for our fridge art gallery.

4. I got my vest monogrammed this week and LOVE it!!
Can't wait for cooler temps this week to be able to wear it.
 I also got my very favorite BRIGHT RED lipstick on one of my new shirts this week.  Luckily, I remembered that toothpaste gets lipstick out of fabric.  It worked like a charm and saved my shirt. 

5.  We got a Halloween care package in the mail this week.  Olive is obsessed with necklaces and she loved playing with her new little toys.  We've been having fun reading her Halloween books.  She keeps bringing me the monster teeth to put in because they don't fit in her mouth.  Silly girl.
We also had fun making pumpkin cinnamon rolls and I'm hoping to make pumpkin play dough today.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!
Thanks for stopping by my blog.


  1. Olive's costume is so sweet, and how clever to use footprints for the cat cards!

  2. Cutest strawberry costume! Love the little kitty craft out of foot prints.
    I just recently purchased a similar vest in off white from Old Navy and had it monogrammed. Love yours!

    Happy Halloween!

  3. I love that the toothpaste worked on the lipstick stain. I've never heard of that!

  4. Aw, she looks so cute in her costume! And I am loving that monogram vest, hope you have a great weekend!

  5. I had no idea about the toothpaste trick! Love those little kitty feet. I've never seen them before. I am not ready for the cold weather at all, but it's here! Stopping by from the Friday linky. Happy Sunday!

  6. That strawberry costume is so cute! What a great idea, too!

  7. THANK YOU for sharing that toothpaste trick!! I got red lipstick (why I even thought I was coordinated enough for red lipstick is a question for another day) on one of my favorite jackets on Friday!! Definitely going to try that trick!! Thanks for linking up with me and Kristin!!


I LOVE hearing from you!! Thanks for taking the time to leave sweet comments; I enjoy reading every one of them.
