It has been a LONG time since I did a bloopers post – we are long overdue for some giggles. Blogging is a lot of hard work and bad photos. So here is another round up of the worst of the worst for your viewing enjoyment. These bloopers are unedited and proudly brought to you by my husband.

 This afternoon we had our final Thanksgiving dinner of the year – after one more massive food binge we are 100% ready for Christmas! Our tree is up and there are even some gifts already under there. Fingers crossed that Alastor does not like the gifts as much as he liked the bulbs. 🙂

If you have been following this blog for a bit, you should recognize the skirt from this thrift haul post. It has since been ironed and looks so much better. 🙂

Here’s another Thanksgiving outfit idea! What I love about this outfit is that it’s casual but dressy and comfy but put together. Perfect for stuffing (and hiding!) your belly on Thanksgiving!

This scarf is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. I love the double sided option and it’s so large and cozy, you’ll just want to wear it everywhere. It comes 12 colors and I already have plans to buy the series 1 red and the series 2 green for the upcoming holidays! And that wallet? If you are in need of a new one, it’s literally the best wallet I’ve ever owned. There’s so much space and everything stays so well organized, not to mention it’s pretty chic. 🙂

Full disclosure: WE HAVE BEEN SO BUSY. I don’t even know how it’s happened – I suppose it’s just that time of year when time creeps up on us and smacks us on the back of the head with a cast iron skillet. Funny story? Getting smacked with a cast iron skillet is a true story. Not mine, but a relatives’. Moving on.

The photos are a little weird this time around. We haven’t fully adjusted to the time change and we were hurrying to get out of the house before it got too dark. I was in a weird mood and it was windy. Top it off with the fact that my hair looked like Hermione year one and you’ve got yourself these lovely photos above. 🙂

Yesterday my oldest younger sisters’ 24th birthday! She is such a peppy, bubbly, one of a kind lady and is worth celebrating in the best way. For your information, “the best way” means the whole family going out to a buffet. And I’m saying in the most unsarcastic way ever. 100% honest. I LOVE buffets. 🙂

Since the weather has done a 180, iit did not get above 40 degrees yesterday. Considering it was 70 Monday, my sinuses are not happy, my flip flops are retired for the season and I am freaking cold! But birthdays are for dressing up and I will not compromise. Plus, I feel like (insert your favorite four letter word here) and wearing heels when you’re sick makes you feel like a rockstar.

Whew! It has been a long time since I posted anything. We had a lot less down time in Ireland than we expected (if you can even say that about a vacation) and things just got away from me. Between jet lag and getting my house prepped for the busiest season of the year, I have just been lagging behind. Add in the fact that somehow I managed to get sick right after we got back and you’ve got yourself a bum blogger. 🙂

Anyhow, we’re back in the states and I’m ready to get back on track. My favorite time of the year is in full swing and I’m so ready for the holidays and all the fun stuff that goes along with them!

Halloween is just around the corner which means I’m practically bursting at the seams for everything festive! This week I’ll be doing a few Halloween inspired outfits to keep you in the spirit. Round one: Jack Skellington.

And before anyone jumps me this church and cemetery are extremely important to me. It’s where my mom and dad got married and the cemetery itself holds multiple generations of my family – I’m talking great great great grandparents and older. I have nothing but the utmost respect for these places and take great care in showing it.

It’s beginning to feel like fall! After two weeks spent in the 80s, it has finally started to cool down around here. Sweater time!

The only downside is that the weather has changed so drastically in such a short time that I’ve been feeling pretty under the weather lately. It’s also been a super busy week getting ready for Ireland, prepping for Halloween and not to mention my weekend was super packed with my siblings spending the whole weekend with us, two birthday dinners and a third non-birthday dinner as well. Whew!

I have been such a horrible blogger lately – not checking my site, not keeping up with my posts. Life has just gotten SO incredibly hectic this past week or so. We’ve had a lot of family events, I’ve been trying hard to get the house decorated for Halloween (and cleaning in the process before heading off to Ireland), last minute details for our trip and to top it off, I’m not feeling much like myself.

Moving on. This outfit is perfect for those hectic weeks. It’s simple, comfy but still classy and sophisticated. Bonus: it makes me feel a lot better when I’m having a not-so-up-to-it day.

This past weekend we went to the pumpkin patch. It’s the same pumpkin patch I went to with my mom and dad when I was itty bitty and the same guy still drives the tractor that takes you into the field. It’s very nostalgic for me. We go every year, ride up to the field, take pictures, pick some pumpkins and buy some candy at the country store on the farm. It’s one of my favorite things to do in the fall.

I have been dying to wear this top since I got it a couple months ago, knowing full well I wouldn’t until fall arrived and this was the perfect occasion! Yes, I wore my boots into the pumpkin field and you know what? I did not wobble or trip or feel stupid once – they are really that comfortable. I’m just as shocked as you are. 🙂 And aren’t these earrings super cute for fall?! My dad bought them for me on a trip a couple years ago and I have never worn them! They remind me of indian corn, so fall was the perfect time to give them a go.
