    Okay, okay. So It’s Halloween Eve. Big deal. Come Friday, this chick will officially be in the CHRISTMAS spirit. I may have started playing holiday music already. Confession: Our Christmas lights are getting put up next week. We won’t turn them on “on” until Thanksgiving, but at least they’ll be up and ready to go. Speaking of Christmas cheer, this new Baily’s creamer sure did wake me right up this morning.

    White chocolate peppermint bark creamer. It’s pretty unbelievable. I found it at Kroger. As I sipped my coffee, I thought about how fun it will be to decorate our new 12 ft Christmas tree (in a few weeks.)

    And I had Blake on blast too.

    Zach and I braved the rain and went to Target earlier. He was obsessed with the umbrella and wanted to keep it open while we were shopping. I diverted his attention by getting Z a cake pop from Starbs. Worked like a charm.

    I came across this amazing-ness while we were there. NYX in Target? YES! YES! YES! Their lip butter is the out of control. I wear apple strudel and maple blondie most of the time.

    Tonight we’re taking the kids our church’s fall festival. After we check it out, we’re dropping them back off at home (with a sitter) and going to the season opener of the MAVS game! Woot Woot!

    I’m hosting my first Stella & Dot party in two weeks. I think November is a great time to do these little shindigs because everyone is in the Christmas shopping mode. Fa la la la la, la la la laaaa!

    On a Yankee candle note, you have to get pumpkin wreath. Oh my goodness! It’s so yummy. You better believe I stocked up a million tarts too.

    I’m ashamed to admit this, but last night I made soup from scratch for the first time, like ever. I found it on pinterest, via skinnymom.com

    Btw, are you following me on pinterest? If you’re not, you should.

    Okay, back to the soup. It came out better than I thought. Actually, it was pretty darn amazing.

    It’s a skinny veggie detox soup.

    Even better the next day. Trust.

    Okay kids, Stu is walking in and we’ve gotta go! Have a great night!

    Hey hey hey!

    Now that I’ve got a new laptop, we’re back in business. My Mac book pro was on it’s last legs, so we got a Mac book Air. I wanted something lighter, and this is definitely lighter.

    Today we went to a Halloween party at My Gym. As you can see, Ainslee makes a super cute strawberry. Too bad her brother wanted nothing to do with his costume. Womp Womp.

    Here are some more pics of my kids from the last week.

    Rise and shine. It’ FRIDAY!!!!

    I’m sorry y’all, but this cracked me up.

    1380364_609446375760383_1073933163_n

    Pie and lattes, mwahahahahahhahaha!!!!! That’s a killer combo if ya ask me. Speaking of pilates, I really need to use my groupon for the 10 sessions I bought. This is the second time I’ve purchased the same deal to the same pilates studio. I never used the first one and then it expired. My latest one will expire next month. Crap, I better start pilate-ing.

    Last night, in a move of desperation, I dumped the rest of the candy corn; yes, even those big-ass sugary delicious pumpkins. I can’t be temped anymore. I don’t care who you are, no one can eat just a “few” pieces of candy corn. The entire bag? Why certainly, but just a couple? Nope, impossible.

    I got my reverse ombre hair done yesterday. What do you think? This was my reward for ditching those cornies, haha.  Dominique, my stylist said I’m the first client she’s had ask for the reverse look. Dom is fantastic and I’ve referred many people to her. If you live in the Dallas area and want a fab stylist that knows color, email me and I’ll give you Dom’s contact info. She truly is amaze! lisa@lisapaige.com

    Did I mention how much I love Z’s new haircut? Dom cut his locks off  Wednesday.

    Zach’s doesn’t look like a baby anymore with his new do. I’ve got a big boy on my hands now. Today as we were getting out of the car he says “Mommy, I’m going to jump. Ready, set go!” I about died. He gets in and out of my car and refuses to let us help him. The little conversations he’s starting up are completely adorable. Such a fun age.

    Okay one last picture, then I’ll stop.

    My latest order of glow pads came yesterday. These are my holy grail. I love that the new formulation doesn’t smell.

    Today is our anniversary and we’re celebrating by going to dinner at our favorite restaurant and then seeing Michael Buble tonight. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate 11 years.

    I was 22 and Stu was 24 in this pic. Good lord, I am feel old.

    Alright, the kiddos are up and I need a refill on my coffee.

    Have an awesome Friday!

    Well today was quite eventful.

    Zach got his first real haircut. To ensure he’d get a good cut and not a bowl cut, I took him to my girl, Dominique. I brought his ipad and like a big boy, Z sat on my lap and watched Yo Gabba Gabba while Dom snipped away. I thought I’d be more emotional, but because I have so much confidence in Dominique and knowing she’d do a good job, I was at ease and peace with it all. Geesh, you’d think by reading this, someone had died. My friend Michelle was holding Ainslee there for moral support, haha. His long hair means so much to me. It’s sort of his identity in a way. I love his hair long, but honestly, I was getting sick or morons thinking he was a girl. Oh, and the fact that he was always getting food in it. Baths every other night is one thing, but every single night?? Nope, momma can’t do that. Now, we won’t have that problem anymore.

    Me pouting as I hold a bag of his locks.

    And to think, just yesterday my sweet boy looked hair gorgeous hair like this…le sigh.

    Gulp…

    In other LP news, my second stitch fix box came today. I’m keeping one top. Unfortunately, the sleeves were too long on the two other shirts and the olive-green coat they sent me was similar to one I already have. The necklace was just okay. I’ll post a pic of my new swag tomorrow when I wear it ;0)  I love stitch fix simply because of the 1) surprise and 2) the convenience. Now that I have kids, I rarely have time to go shopping for myself, let alone try stuff on. There’s no commitment with stitchfix. Sign up for one month, see how you like it, and go from there. Easy peasy.

    This was my snack today. Control the drool. That would be a delicious 160 calorie double chocolate chunk quest bar warmed with two soft and fluffy marshmallows on top. Best 210 calorie treat I’ve had in a while. This picture looks so good, I pinned it.
