Sophie's First Halloween

Hello Again!

I can't believe it, I am blogging again in less than a week! My Little Pumpkin has a cold and is napping, so I thought I'd write a quick post and share her First Halloween with you.

We knew, almost immediately, that we wanted Sophie to be Wonder Woman for Halloween. She really is our little superhero!
We decided not to dress up this year, and make it all about Sophie. Now that I think about it, it's been years since I dressed up. ! Next year we might do a family superhero theme. I wore my Halloween shirt, the same one I've worn for the past few years!
Amber came over to Trick-or-Treat with us, and she also brought Sophie the sweetest little Halloween basket filled with treats and clothing!
Amber took a few family photos of us and our Wonder Woman.
We headed out to do a bit of Trick-Or Treating. We knew that it would not be a lengthy excursion; it was dipping down into the 40s and it was quite windy. Wonder Woman had to wear her bear coat :)
We stopped by our neighbor's home, and Sophie had a case of stranger anxiety. After Aron took her out of her stroller and held her, she was fine at the next couple of homes. But, the wind picked up and we headed home.

We had Boboli pizza and the pumpkin bread I had made earlier that day....and candy, of course. Shelly joined us later, and we put Sophie to bed, Later, we half talked/half watched a pseudo-scary flick, The House at the End of the Street. It was great to hang out with friends and my sweet hubby :)

That's Sophie's First Halloween! I truly love the Fall, and Halloween is one of my favorite holidays.

Life Nuggets: Fall Edition

Hello Again!

I had grand plans of weekly Mommy and Me outfit posts, but those haven't exactly panned out. Heck, blogging hasn't been happening much at all! But, I've decided that my roles as Mommy, Wife, and small business owner aren't going to allow for regular blogging. I've decided to blog how I wish (and when I am able), and not to stress too much about it. So, I thought I'd share what my Fall has been like thus far; friends and fam, books, fashion, and all of those fun little Life Nuggets. 

//Family and Friend time//

Our little Sophie is doing great! It is hard to believe that, on the 29th of October, she turned 9 months old! She is saying Ga-Ga, Ba-ba, Da-da, Ma-ma, and a million other noises and combinations. She hates to sit up, but can now do so. She likes to pull herself across the floor, and crawl backwards. She is amazing!

I'm so excited to share in all the Fall seasonal activities with my little one. We took her to the Walden Farm pumpkin patch a few weeks ago, we all had a blast. Well, I think Aron and I had more fun than little Sophs :)
We've also had fun with friends this month. Here are a couple of pics from Amber's birthday lunch:

//Reads//

I'm one of those who was late to the Gone Girl party, but man am I glad I showed up! It took me about a week to get through this novel (baby and businesses and all), but I was determined to finish it before I saw the film. Gone Girl is both incredibly exciting and disturbing, and now I have to get my hands on all of Gillian Flynn's novels.



//Movies//



Gone girl wins again! I love David Fincher films, and he did not disappoint with this adaptation. 

Shelly, Amber, Michelle and I went to see the film and made a girl's afternoon of it. Amber, Shelly, and I stopped by Chili's afterwards. 
//Music//

Aside from the constant tunes of Sophie's Baby Einstein toys, I haven't been listening to music too much lately. One exception  is Lana Del Rey, and her album Ultraviolence. I know many people dislike Lana, and I used to be one of them, but once I listened to her music I was hooked.

//Wears//

I've always been a dress, cardigan, and leggings kind of girl, but since I had Sophie, I find skinny jeans, tops or sweaters, and flats work better for me. I'm shocked to find myself writing this! 
I do still love my dresses, and have a nice collection of them, but they are no longer my go tos. I still make myself wear one every once in a while :)

Here are some of my favorites from this fall:

 1// Torrid Kiss V-Neck Sweater
2// Torrid Animal Print Sweatshirt
3// Forever 21 Plus Everyday Skinny Jeans

I absolutely love these two tops from Torrid. They are comfortable and always make me feel sassy. The jeans are only $9.90, and while I am trying not to support F21 too much, I can't really beat the price and fit. I'm one of those weirdos who hate any kind of fading or streaking on jeans, so the indigo works perfectly for me. 

I still like to keep a little glamour to my look, so I've been obsessed with last years Torrid Cheetah coat. 
Well, that is it for my Fall Life Nuggets roundup. I am off to work on a past due post about Sophie's First Halloween! Stay tuned...

Thanks for stopping by!

Fashion Nugget: Mommy and Me # 1

Hello Again!

Things have been insanely busy in our world (Baby Sophie, Dragon Con, minor home projects), but I wanted to take a quick moment and post a Mommy and Me outfit post. I'm thinking of making these a regular feature on my blog :)

I confess, these photos aren't new, they were taken in mid July. I can't believe how much our little Sophie has grown. She is now over 7 months old!

We wore these outfits to a quick dinner at Red Robin. So far, Sophie has been great in restaurants and around people in general, so an occasional meal out is still doable. 
Top and Shorts: Torrid
Shoes: DSW (old)
"S" Heart Necklace: Tiffany's
Sophie's tropical look: Koala Baby
She looks thrilled.
Going for the boob.
Those eyes :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Mrs. Mia Wallace

Hello Again!

How many of you were obsessed with the movie Pulp Fiction when it premiered some 20 odd years ago? I was just a babe in the woods, a mere 18 years old when this film was released. From my first viewing of Pulp Fiction, I was in love. Quentin Tarantino made an true American classic: stylish, violent, smart, funny, with exceptional dialogue and an awesome non-linear timeline. I had never seen or heard anything like it. I've watched it several times over the years, and we even viewed it again this Christmas. Hey, I think it is the perfect holiday film! 
A little background on one of my favorite characters, Mrs. Mia Wallace. Mia is the wife of gangster Marsellus Wallace (played by Ving Rhames), who asks his employee Vincent Vega (played by John Travolta) to take her out on the town while he is away. They visit Jack Rabbit Slims, a retro joint where waiters dress as 1950s icons. Buddy Holly (played by Steve Buscemi) takes their "bloody as hell" burger and "$5 shake" orders. Mia insists they enter the dancing contest, and they of course win. After dinner, they take a trip to Vincent's dealer's home after she mistakes Vincent's heroin for cocaine, and nearly ODs. What saves her life is a giant needle full of adrenaline to her heart. Well, it's not family fare, but it is amazing piece of film.

The music, look, and dialogue of the film is very inspiring. Style wise, Mia takes the cake. Mia sports a black bob, red lips and dark nails (that I am fairly sure is Chanel's legendary "Vamp" color). She wears a black jacket, white fitted button down top, cropped black pants, and a sultry attitude.
Needless to say, I was beyond thrilled to see that Urban Decay released a Pulp Fiction Mia Wallace inspired makeup collection! Take a look at these beauties! I just ordered the eyeshadow palette and nail polish, the lipsticks are sold out. (This post was in no way sponsored by Urban Decay. I simply lost my mind when I saw these items!)

In other Pulp Fiction news, it looks like we will be getting these Minimates Pulp Fiction "Vince and Mia's Night Out" toys in our Twisted Heroes store come October! You bet I will be keeping one for myself. 
I'll leave y'all with the original trailer. Thanks for stopping by!
