Happy Monday, friends!! Another weekend in the books, hope it was a great one for you! We stayed busy with a few fall activities, once again the weather was beautiful & we loved every minute. Now that it’s finally feeling like fall, my mind is racing with family picture ideas, fall fashions, & of course, Waverly Maye’s halloween costume. I think we came up with the perfect idea that couldn’t fit her personality better, can’t wait to share it soon! 🙂
We also started dressing the house for the season, it’s been way too long since the last holiday & we were totally due for some festiveness for our decor. I ordered this garland a few weeks back, I have decided that I have a garland obsession & I am not sure if it is healthy. 😉 Really, nothing puts me in the holiday spirit more than bright colored tassels hanging from our mantel. I am in love with the colors in this one & how great it matches with our gold pumpkin trio!
I also picked up a burlap garland in the dollar bin at Target last week, one of my favorite recent finds!! Target is once again killing it with their fall collection, I wanted to buy everything & then some. I settled on the garland & a matching burlap pumpkin I found in the seasonal aisle, and will probably go back soon for more. 😉
This fall marks the first time in years that my entire family has been in the same city during the school year. Like since I graduated high school & left for college thirteen years ago. A couple years after I left, my brother did, then a few years after he left, my sister left for the same reason. Now finally, all of us have graduated, moved back home, & all six members of my family are in VB.
Still, life is busy, so a couple weeks ago we started Sunday dinners at my house. It’s the best thing ever, I’m so glad we can do this again! The only person who is happier than me about it is Waverly, she waits for them all day Sunday while repeating every single person’s name. It’s the sweetest, I love that she has them to grow up with!
Best wishes for a fantastic week ahead!
First, in fashion news, we pulled out Waverly Maye’s cat ears over the weekend & I am in love!! We had a couple last year but recently added this set from Target
, the fact that they are leopard makes them that much cuter. Another reason to love fall fashion, especially for little ones since they obviously look so much better in this stuff than any of us ever would. 😉
And onto my little thing of the week!! This one goes down in the books as one of my favorites ever, I’ll be laughing about it for a long time. Waverly & I had a rare mall date a couple days ago, I say rare because most of my shopping is now done online since stores (especially ones with hangers & clothes to pull down) aren’t always the easiest. I decided to give it a try, we got some lunch plus walked around for a bit, Waverly was actually being a rock star & we were having way too much fun. Our car was parked outside of Forever 21 & as we were walking out to leave, Waverly grabs on to one particular shirt that she immediately fell in love with (not her size, not even close, our Forever doesn’t sell kids clothes.) For whatever reason, she would not stop saying how “cute!” it was, so I let her go try it on because yes, I’m that mom who got way too excited about my daughter’s love of fashion. At age two.
In the fitting room, she threw it right on & pranced out of the room wearing her shirt (turned maxi dress), showing everyone who would look. It was the cutest thing, until she realized that she didn’t get to wear it out of the store (don’t we wish that was how it worked!). It was a mini-tantrum turned into one of those teachable mom moments where I had to explain to her how shopping works. Melt my heart.
Fast forward to later that afternoon, when Waverly insisted on wearing her new shirt (turned maxi dress) down the street to walk her babies. Because yes, I am also that mom who bought it for her because she loved it that much. She held it in her lap the entire drive home & wore it all night, I’m thinking it will really fit her in approximately 15 years.

I can only imagine what the neighbors think of us now. 😉 Hope YOUR start the week is great, we are halfway there! Thanks for all who have been linking-up & continue to, see this post for a reminder.
