Five on Friday

HAPPY FRIDAY, friends. 
And if it gets any better than a Friday, which is obviously really hard to do, happy LESS THAN ONE WEEK until Halloween.  We are getting pretty holiday happy over here. 🙂
Linking up with Natasha, Darci & the ladies, here are my five!
ONEDaddies & Daughters.  I mean, does it get any cuter than a dad & his daughter?!  I cherish my relationship with Waverly Maye & just know we will be BFs forever, but I can’t help but get all sappy over my hubby & his girl.

Those two (& the dog) are just too adorable for my ever-emotional mommy heart.  Waverly LOVES her daddy to the moon, without a doubt, & I just know she is going to be as close to him as I am to my own dad.
Because I don’t want to be left out, I just have to have a moment for me & my mini, too.  I clearly can’t do badass things like ride a skateboad with her like he can, but oh I love her so!
TWOSoup & Pumpkin Carving Night.  Last weekend, we hosted a Halloween-themed dinner for friends.  We made the yummiest chicken & vegetable soup and halloween cupcakes for dessert.  And of course, we served adult beverages in the most festive of ways. 
THREEHalloween Pasta.  Speaking of festive foods, I picked up a couple packages of this halloween-shaped pasta last month at TJ Maxx, and have had the best time making it for Waverly Maye this week.  I totally get that she sees no difference in this pasta & her normal dinners, but it’s the thought that counts, right?!  I also came across pumpkin-shaped tortilla chips & skeleton-shaped cheese puffs at Bed, Bath & Beyond and am so excited to add some fun into snack time next week!
FOURRadio Flyer Wagon.  My mother-in-law passed down this wagon to us, and it is just the most fun!  Waverly loves her wagon rides, almost as much as she loves pushing the wagon herself.

I plan to use this for our first official trick-or-treating adventure next week & obviously for lots of family walks this fall.  It has enough room to even bring the 1.2 million essentials we need for traveling with a toddler AND to fit more than one child … one day. 🙂
FIVE:  It’s a weekend full of Halloween festivities for us, including a kids costume party tonight at our kids gym, a day at the “boo” zoo tomorrow, & delivering some special holiday treats for friends & family. 
Here is to the holidays!
We hope that everyone has a festive, FUN, & safe weekend!  I am getting so excited to see Waverly Maye in her costume, and to see what all of your little ones will be wearing, too!  Am I the only one who has been working on my daughter’s costume since August but haven’t yet put one thought into what I will be wearing? 
Just checking.
