August/September Monthly Recap + Time to get spoopy!

So you guys might have noticed that we've been a bit... MIA since August. We had A LOT happen. Some really good stuff and some really bad stuff. 

We had Finn's birthday and birthday party, we had a family friend of ours and her son come live with us, I went through some traumatic events, Finn started school, I joined the PTA and events committee at his school, then he joined cub scouts. Then I lost my job. And so everything kind of decided to happen all at once. 

We're hoping to get back into everything, especially since I'm staying home now. 

For the month of October we decided it was to get a bit spoopy. 

So every day we will post something Halloween related. Maybe book suggestions, movies, makeup, whatever. 

You can also follow my instagram where I will be posting for the October photo challenge, along with some darker halloween makeup, and I'm watching a horror movie every day. 

So just be on the look out for that.

♥ I think I might have read a total of 20 books in August and September... combined? I wasn't really keeping track. 

So that's really it for now. I usually post my favorite pics I took for the month, but that would be a lot. So check out my instagram to see those.

Other than that, we don't have much to say except watch out for our spoopy posts through the month of October.


  1. Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear about the rough bits of your month. I hope things are okay now. Sending lots of love your way!

  2. Oy! I’m sorry to hear about all the craziness. Thanks for saying hi!

  3. I noticed you guys hadn't posted in awhile and was hoping everything was okay. I hope all the bad stuff is being resolved!

  4. I was wondering where you guys were and I'm glad you're physically ok. I'm so sorry to hear about the job loss-it can be a scary time when it happens suddenly. My parents and I lost our jobs in the same three years which threw the house into chaos so I can fully get what you are going through. I remember the stress and worry. I'm keeping everything crossed that things get better quickly for you. *hugs*

  5. Wow, that’s *a lot* for one month. I’d be all “Calgon, take me away!” I hope October is a lot calmer. Getting 20 books read in the midst of all that is pretty impressive!
