October 2015 Outfits-001

I’ve needed this week to kind of reboot a little and shift gears from fall/Halloween to HAPPY HOLIDAYS ALL THE THINGS TO DO!!!

But October was pretty great. Mild weather, a great party, a killer homemade Halloween costume for Hannah. I got TWO new chunky turtleneck sweaters, which means prepare to see those two sweaters in constant rotation until March. I do not play around when it comes to turtleneck season.

I made patriotic desserts for a party at my brother and sister-in-law’s pool club. Blueberry pie (which was honestly terrible) and sour cherry pie (which was glorious).

Hannah chased her cousins around our house at a cookout on the 2nd.

Mother's Day 2015

I like Mother’s Day. I’m still pretty new at it; I’ve had a great one, a not-so-great-one (poor destination choice), and an out-of-the-country one. So I’m still figuring out what to actually do on Mother’s Day to celebrate, and this year I feel like I’ve gotten the closest to what I want out of the day. First, here’s how I got to this realization.

Christmas 2014

‘Tis the season! And it’s been a great one, but I could sleep for days. I made a huge Christmas Eve dinner, Christmas dinner, and some stuff for Boxing Day brunch this morning. I’ve never used so much butter, cream, and flour in all my days.

wrapping paper 2014

The tiny boss lady picked all the paper this year. She is very decisive, and her aesthetics align right with her mom’s.

Thanksgiving 2014

I never remember to take photos at Thanksgiving, I don’t know why. This photo above was the only one I have of the food. We made classic turkey, mashed potatoes, and stuffing. I roasted brussels sprouts. My mom brought sweet potatoes and rolls, my brother and his family brought pies and his macaroni and cheese with wheat pasta. My aunt brought the yummiest bean dip and green bean casserole. It was a group effort this year, and I really loved that.

halloween 2014 1

Halloween has come and gone, and it was so awesome this year. We also got a ton of mileage out of Hannah’s homemade costume this year. I love this cow.

Sweet Suite 2014 WowWee

It’s the first day of fall! So obviously my brain is starting to focus on the upcoming holiday season.

During the summer I went to The Big Toy Book’s Sweet Suite event in Manhattan, which is an annual party to connect bloggers (basically “mommy bloggers”) with companies and their products. This year it was part of a series of events called Blogger Bash, but I only attended Sweet Suite.

I went as press for GeekMom, since we’re working on our holiday gift guides. And there will be a lot of cool stuff for the holidays this year, ya’ll.

Easter is a bit of a strange holiday for us around here. We’re kind of haphazard in how/if we celebrate it each year, so this was the first year that we took Hannah to an Easter egg hunt. We went to Allaire Village for the 10,000 Easter Egg Hunt. Despite being surrounded by disappointed parents and kids who didn’t find any eggs, Hannah managed to get 4 in the “baby corral” (and we gave some away to toddlers who didn’t get any).

We’re exhausted and happy here after a great Christmas. Here’s Hannah’s reaction to the elephant rocker her grandparents gave her for Christmas. Awesome little creature.
