Harrison's friend Colby turned 2 at the beginning of the month and I had so much fun designing these Yo Gabba Gabba invitations for him! We celebrated the big 2 year old with yummy food and a bounce house, so much fun!
Halloween was a blast. Harrison learned very quickly that if he held up his pumpkin to a stranger they gave him candy. Then he learned how to get in to said candy when no one was looking. Best day of his whole life. Also, best costume he'll ever wear. Not sure how we're going to top that one. And if you're unfamiliar with the movie Dumb And Dumber, here's an awesome clip:
Our combo office/playroom is sloooowwwwlllyyyy coming together.
I've decided to use what we have, persay. So I'm still using my grandmother's old desk but thinking about giving it a makeover one of these days. I'm using our outdoor table (covered in polka dot fabric) as a main workspace for now and actually, it's working out quite nicely. Lots of space - which is awesome. Also, it's not pictured but, I had Tyler go dumpster diving for a tall 4 drawer filing cabinet that's in great shape--just needs some paint to cover the ugly taupe color.
Also... I am need of toy organization suggestions. A toy box of some sort I think? I don't know, I haven't found anything that I'm in love with yet.
I'm also thinking there's too much pink in there already, need some blue and orange accents to offset.
Short Term To Do List
+ Paint filing cabinet
+ Hang tassel garland (on order)
+ Paint office chair
+ Buy toy box + bookshelf (any suggestions?)
+ Buy black fabric for product photos (will be happening on left side wall-unpictured)
+ Order some Poppin office supplies
Long Term To Do List
+ Desk makeover or buy new desk
+ Closet organization
+ Find a rug I like
It's coming together! I really enjoy the fact that I can be working while Harrison plays independently right near me. Much better than taking breaks every 3.7 minutes to go check on him. :)
+ We spent the weekend before last at my parents'. It was...as you might imagine. Just kidding. I love my parents. And I didn't want H to start thinking that every time we went there we were leaving him so...we stayed. For two whole nights. I really, really missed my own bed though and about 27 hours in to our little sleepover my home-body-ness took over and I was ready to go home. But we all survived. Harrison loves being out at the ranch, acres and acres for him to run (be chased).
+ Old news but... I can't believe Breaking Bad is over and OH BOY what a finale. I was anxious about it (well, after the fiasco that was the end of Dexter...).
+ You know what anniversary celebrations look like after 8 years together (3 married) and one kid? Take out sushi while watching Parenthood and packaging mugs. I wouldn't have it any other way.
+ Is that really only 4 things? How much more boring can this get? Ummmmmmmm.... oh! Today we are going to this pumpkin patch and I AM SO EXCITED. I love pumpkin patches and this one has super cool things like a train ride and petting zoo. :)
