Friday Five & Happy Halloween

I'm late to the blogging game today. I had to run out this morning to find green face paint for my little Incredible Hulk since he doesn't want to wear the mask {it doesn't fit right}. Luckily, I found some at the Halloween store. is actually Halloween. October is pretty much officially over. Now I feel like Christmas will be here tomorrow. Between Tanner's birthday next week, his campout birthday party the following week, my wedding anniversary, our trip to Myrtle Beach Thanksgiving week and all the Christmas festivities to come, I'm already feeling drained and I haven't even started! We'll be ringing in 2015 before you know it. Where does the time go?

Well, here are my 5 things...


I've been a good girl...I've been pretty much eating like this all week...and I can proudly say I've finally gotten down in the 150s {I was 145 pre-prego, and am nearly 5'8"}! I seriously was lingering back and forth between the same 1-2 lbs and it was driving me crazy. I tell you, it's true what they say, it is 80% diet! Cutting out wine for the week also made a huge difference {though I miss it with every ounce of my being}...I may have some tonight, it is Halloween after all.


Looking forward to the Color Rave Glow Run tomorrow night! I stocked up on glow bracelets and necklaces at the dollar store and will be wearing the rainbow arm and leg warmers from my Rainbow Brite costume. Our running team is called Taste the Rainbow, so it's perfect. My first 5K post 3rd baby! I'm excited, it's going to be fun and of course the after party will be great too.


I got Farrah a door jumper and oh. my. God. she is too stinkin' cute in it.

Them thighs tho...hahahaha


Speaking of baby girl, I'm loving Gymboree's collection for the holidays! Right now you can get 40% off of everything! Here are my favorites for Farrah:

Everyone have a safe and happy Halloween! Here's some ecards I thought were good.

Crazy For Paisley

I don't know about you, but I definitely have a mom uniform. I tend to spend plenty of time in bootcut jeans, flats and a comfortable top. Of course, I most always carry a large bag as well.

I stumbled upon this adorable paisley blouse at Ross one day and snagged it up. A great deal for a 100% rayon top that is lightweight and flattering. I loved all of the colors in the paisley design - plenty of blue, pink and yellow with some neutrals. I had never seen anything like it and it gave off a bit of a Boho vibe. I feel like paisley is making it's way back into popularity, and I don't mind.

Neon & Aztec

I'm the type of girl that's not afraid of bright colors. I mean, have you seen my living room & Farrah's nursery? I'm the same way with clothes. Often, I find my eye attracted to bright colors, even neon. I think if you do it right, it can look great...toning it down with neutrals is a sure way to stand out with just a little "pop" and not too much.

This coral neon tank top caught my eye and this cozy Aztec sweater had a hint of the same neon coral, while keeping the rest of the sweater neutral. I think they make a great pair. These pictures seem to tone down the actual color of the tank top because I can assure you, it is a bright, neon coral orange.

If you know me personally, you know I love pink. Add leopard to that? Absolutely. Here's a fun little outfit I put together that's great for the office, a night out, or if you're like me, hanging out at home fabulously. ;-)
