What I wore...Disected

Here is the outfit I wore for a day of wine tasting this last weekend. As you can see, I am wearing a lot of stuff from Target...I was going to try and come up with an excuse or justification as to why everything I am wearing is from Target (because it is a little embarassing) but simply put, Target is easy and it is the one place I can stick my children in a shopping cart and bribe them with treats and toys so that I can try on clothes if only for 5 minutes...pure bliss!!! For now on I'll stick to buying stuff online....Oh and yes...I might also add, that my husband made a comment about my socks sticking out of my boots. He said, "is that the style these days?" "I'd like to see a picture of that from a magazine." I said,"ha, yes, it is, I'll show you." So I went and grabbed my latest Urban Oufitters catalog and showed him just who the stylish one is in this family....

Little Helper

I finally got my hubby to hang my clipboards in the dining room the other night
(inspired by this blog) and of course he couldn't do it without his little cute!!!

Look what I snagged today...only $4.00
I was just at Urban Outfitters earlier in the day and was looking at some similar for close to $50.00
When I saw this one at the thrift store I was so excited, especially after I saw the price. What made the purchase even sweeter was the little old woman that checked me out and how she said what a nice purse it was...she was adorable! Sitting on my new purchase is the current book I'm reading that my hubby bought me at the airport a few months ago. I will only be 29 for 2 more months and he thought of me when he saw the book....what a sweetie! Have you found any stellar thrifted items lately?

stay home

I can't tell you how much I love this poster...I don't actually own it, but have been dreaming about it for quite some time...I think I might have to get it for my hubby for Christmas, because really, there is nothing I love more than staying home with my family!

4 kids, 2 adults and a week in Tahoe

About two weeks ago, my girlfriend and I took our 4 kiddos up to Lake Tahoe for 5 days. We had an absolute blast and made some memories that we'll never forget....

.the fall colors
.looking for pinecones and sticks with our munchkins
.the girls deciding to do Rocco's hair with a bow (and him enjoying it)
.good talks
.glasses of wine

.good, fresh food
.hikes that only lasted 30 minutes
.the munchkins getting naked and going in the freezing lake and loving it

.cuddling with our kids
.drinking warm coffee every morning
.carving pumpkins

.my car breaking down and having to be towed
.everyone looking at us like we were crazy
It was a truly priceless trip...we can't wait to do it again!!

One last bit of Halloween

Here's a look at my kiddos costumes....I got to spend a night with Belle and Batman. They would only stop for a second so they could get their picture snapped. It was a fun night. I'm trying to decide what to do with all of this Halloween candy now, but the decorations are packed up and now I am ready to decorate for Christmas....

Lady Gaga

We have been busy bees around here, so I apologize for not getting it together with my blog posts...I do have a lot to share with you, but for now, it is my Halloween costume, as I know you have all been wondering just what I was....the infamous Lady Gaga! I was trying to make the meat costume she wore to this years VMA's but I didn't have the time or manpower in me, so I got this instead with a little help from the girl that babysits my little ones. It was a fun night and I did win 3rd place in a costume contest. I was up against some tough competition at this year's Halloween party! Now to start thinking about next year!!! I hope you all had a Happy Halloween!
