Grayson was not liking the cold. So he isn’t the happiest in some of these pictures!! I got all of our costumes on Amazon!
Mommy- Toy Story Barbie
Grayson loves this costume and every time he puts it on he says, “reach for the SKY!”. I cannot wait to take this boy trick or treating on Tuesday night! We are going to have a blast.
Tomorrow I am going on the news to show some easy DIY costumes and I cannot wait to show some mommies some last minute ideas! Tuesday I am dressing up as a scarecrow for work. I hope everyone has a safe and Happy Halloween!

Happy Saturday Everyone!
I am really into this pumps and distressed jeans look lately. I feel like it really dresses up the jeans and makes you look super classy. I told Chris I wanted to go buy some cheetah print heels. He said no like usual. haha. These yellow heels or so out of the box but I really LOVE them. Sometimes you need a little color in your life.
I have been super anxious lately about having another baby and feeling like Grayson isn’t going to get enough attention. So much has happened in the past 3 years and it has always been Chris, Grayson, and me. Just the 3 of us. I have guilt that Grayson isn’t going to be the center of attention anymore. Do any other moms feel this way?
I think he is going to love and adore his sibling. I know he will be super excited just to have someone to play with all the time. The boy is exactly like me sometimes. He loves to be around people and he doesn’t like to be by himself. I love being around people, talking to people, and building relationships. My husband on the other hand is more reserved.
I have considered taking maternity leave a week before my due date and spending that entire week with Grayson. Just me and him. Some moms have been giving me tips and they say to give Grayson a gift from Annslee when she gets here. I think that idea is a great idea. If anyone else has any ideas/tips about having a second baby fill me in. The power of mommy groups helping each other is AMAZING. I am in a couple groups on Facebook and I love it.
Should Grayson stay at the hospital with us the majority of the time we are with the new baby? What did y’all do?
Should I pack a bag for Grayson when we go to the hospital so he has plenty of snacks and things to play with while I am in labor? I think this is a good idea!
Do you let your toddler hang out with you while you are in labor and then get grandma to take him out when you get ready to push?
I teamed up with Walmart to show a costume look for around $25. I think this costume is great if you are on a budget or if you are thinking about doing something last minute. It’s also great for pregnant women because it’s hard to find a maternity costume. I think this look is so cute and the only thing I had to buy to recreate it was the hat, eyelashes, eyeliner, and orange smudge proof lipstick. The jeans, tank, top and boots were already in my closet. How awesome is that?
The makeup took about 10 minutes max and I made a tutorial on how to recreate the makeup for this scarecrow look. I did have foundation and concealer on my face before I made the tutorial. Don’t worry if the black lines around the mouth and nose are absolutely perfect. I think it looks cuter when they are a little messy.
