Quick, Work Friendly Halloween Costume

Although most people (myself included) probably celebrated Halloween a little too hard this weekend, we still have to get through the actual holiday tomorrow. This weekend we went to two different parties with different costumes. That wasn't the original plan, but I ran out of time during the week to get together my Friday night costume so this is what we ended up with:
A hunter and his deer
This was actually SO easy to do for someone who isn't very makeup skilled, so I thought I would share what I used and how I did it. Unfortunately, I didn't think about sharing this until after my face was basically done so I don't have step by step pictures, but it was pretty straightforward once you have the right tools!

Four Friends and a Baby

It's already Monday? This weekend went by way too quickly because it was just too much fun. I thought it would be a perfect weekend for a little recap!

On Friday, our friends from Chancellorsville drive down and then we had a surprise visit from Christian's best friend that lives near DC. We spent a good night catching up and just enjoying each other's company. 

Saturday, it was baby shower time! Our friend Sam is expecting her first little one and she's the first one of our friend group so we are over the moon excited for her. Kristin and I ran a few errands and got breakfast with our husbands before heading over to help finish setting up for the shower before everyone arrived.

My Honest Review of Stitch Fix and Le Tote

A few weeks ago, my aunt and uncle were in from Maui for the week and we, of course, spent a lot of time with them at my grandparents. One night, we were out on the screened porch and my aunt mentions that her whole outfit is from Stitch Fix. Obviously, I have heard of Stitch Fix at this point and have even had a few friends try it out without much luck. But, Joyce convinced me to bite the bullet and try it at least once.

October Goals

It's here, it's here! We have finally hit my favorite month of the year! And, we even had some Fall-ish weather this weekend (well.. Sunday). This weekend I got two great workouts in at Pure Barre and Vibe5 Yoga and we spent a wonderful afternoon at the Renaissance Fair with our friends and their adorable baby. I'm so glad my friends are having cute babies so I don't have to ;)

I wanted to start this month off with a few "goals". Obviously, I'm not setting goals this year and I'm just "trying more" things so I'm going to keep these more general like that.  For an update on where I was in June, check out this post.
