This weekend is our 12 year anniversary. Crazy, right?? We’re heading to a fancy dinner in the city on Saturday night. Nothing too crazy, but it’s a nice restaurant and I’ll probably wear uncomfortable shoes that I’ll take off as soon as I get in the car, so it’ll feel special? I’m hoping to check out Alameda flea market this weekend too if I can get up early enough on Sunday. We have a new mid century daybed that I need to find some fabric to make pillows for. I’m excited to show it to you! Hope you’re up to something fun as well, here are some links to explore:

Continuing with our series on kids halloween costumes we have three little pigs today. I love classic costumes that everyone will recognize and are nostalgic for adults. Also, I try to make every costume an excuse to dress up little ones in tights and leotards because there’s nothing sweeter!
Here’s how to put these 3 little pig costumes together…
For our three little pigs costume, we made pig ears, noses, and tails that are no-sew and take only a few minutes to make. Here’s how to do it…
With fall back in full swing, our family’s weekday schedule is back to being busy and a bit chaotic. I enjoy cooking, but find that sometimes it’s just too stressful to get a home cooked meal on the table every single night. Today we’re sharing an easy way to make four (yes, four) meals from one pot of delicious fall chili.

Here are some details on putting them together…
Happy fall! This weekend I’m flying out to Salt Lake for a good friend’s wedding. It’ll be the first time I’m leaving Dot! It’s only for two days but it’s still weird to think of getting on a plane without her. I’ll be distracted though by a busy, happy occasion with friends and family. Also, I hear the colors in the mountains are amazing right now. I think we’ll be heading up there to forage for some greenery for the reception. Hope you’re up to something fun, here are some links to explore:
