BOO who?!

This week has been filled with Halloween fun!!
Last night we went BOOing,
tonight we are carving pumpkins
and earlier in the week I took the little ones 
trick-or-treating at our local outdoor mall!
My girly giraffe checking out her goodies!!

It was the cutest darn thing seeing all the kids in their costumes :}
I think Cadee had a great time, 
because she hasn't stopped asking to go "ticker teeting"!!

What is BOOing you ask...

Last year what the first time I had been 
I thought it was a great idea 
and couldn't wait to do my BOOing this year :}

I found these cute BOO sheets over at TomKat Studio!
Just print them out and add it to the goody bag,
but hurry you only have a couple of days left before Halloween!!

BOO who?!
BOOing {like EGGing} is a great way to celebrate Halloween 
with your neighbors, coworkers, family and friends!!

Happy Booing,

Hooter Hider

Isn't that a funny name?! 
But these things sell like crazy and for $30!!
{I bought one before I knew how to sew! ;}
I have been procrastinating wanting to make a 
nursing cover since I was pregnant with my second 
and talked about it on my very first post of this blog!
{well my baby is now 6 months old and other projects have had priority :}
A friend asked me if I could make her one,
so now the pressure was on ;}
{just kidding, I was happy you finally got me to do it!}

I believe breast is best for baby and when my baby is hungry 
she doesn't care if we are in the middle of Time Square! 
So since not everyone is comfortable with 
Moms breastfeeding in public, these covers offer a 
"I have to feed my baby, 
but I am trying to be considerate of how others feel" option!

I found a great tutorial {there a ton out there} that I liked best 
and it helped me step-by-step.
This way I could go back and forth between my computer 
and sewing machine to make sure I had it just right!!
{that's the perfectionist in me ;}

I am actually very happy with the final product 
and excited to make more in different prints :}
It was easier and quicker than I thought it would be 
and I can't believe I waited so long to make one! 

I am planning on adding these to my Etsy shop
{as long as I get a good review from my guinea pig piece ;}

Leave a comment letting me know what your favorite print/color would be?
Thanks :}

Happy Nursing,

Linking to these parties!

Fabulous Find: Ella's Kitchen ~ Organic Baby Food

We all know toddlers can be picky,
but my toddler will not even touch a veggie!

As an infant she ate all the pureed veggies so well, 
the moment she hit toddlerhood, 
she wanted nothing to do with them!

I suspect
I am not the only Mom trying to sneak a veggie or two 
any chance I get 
{most of the time very unsuccessful}
I have tried hiding them in her food, 
telling her they are candy, 
but I think when it comes down to it 
the taste and texture just doesn't work for her.
So the struggle continues... 

Or not,
I may have found the answer to our veggie problems...

Organic Baby Food

I gave her the 
Broccoli, Pears and Peas
{I know it doesn't sound very good, but it isn't bad, I tried it too}
she LOVED it!!! YAY!!
She even asked for more when she was done,
 that is a complete success in my book! :}}}

I think she likes the packaging too
because she can sit in her playroom 
and drink it with the little straw!

Needless to say, 
{I am so desperate to get her to eat veggies}
we will be having these on hand from now on!
I found them at Babies R Us on sale for $1 each.

If you have a picky little eater like me,
maybe give these a try, 
there are a bunch of flavors!!

Sneaky {and proud of it} Mommy,

Pumpkin Patch & Laundry Day

This weekend was super fun and relaxing!
We made a trip to the pumpkin patch,
where Cadee got to ride the train and carousel,
walk through the corn maze 
and pick out pumpkins!!

When it came to taking pictures,
she was a little camera shy ;)

I loved this shot the best because we were just having a good time
being silly...

Sunday we just relaxed after our busy Saturday
sooooo, that means today is 
laundry day!!!

Hope everyone had a great weekend 
and starting your week off with fun activities! ;)

New Blog....& the WINNER is...

I decided to start a NEW blog just about crafting and decorating
and most importantly about how to do it on a budget!

Who doesn't LOVE nice things?

 But what I have realized is
I don't need to go to those expensive stores
and buy everything from those fancy catalogs.
I can find one of kind pieces elsewhere
and spruce up my home in a more creative way
while saving a buck or two! :}

Come see what I am doing over at...

And now for the winner of my very first giveaway
and this cute little make-up bag...
