Happily Ever Parker

P is at such a fun age right now. The things that come out of her mouth literally make us laugh and then wonder where on earth she came up with it. She is really having her moment with princesses and anytime she she's someone in a dress she is enamored. Full on ohhhh's and ahhhhh's and saying "princess" (which makes me think I ought to be wearing more dresses around her!)

This weekend we finally get to hit up a pumpkin patch now that the weather is cooperating again. It's our first year in a long time not growing pumpkins and it's such a bummer. They are easily my favorite things to grow in our garden!

Hope you all have a great weekend!


Life Lately

I have been having a week of indecision and I blame it all on a damn set of curtains. You see, it has taken me over 5 years to finally buy curtains for our bedroom so of course I couldn't settle for anything. So after purchasing (and hanging and steaming) three different sets we are finally settled. And if I am being honest - well they are just going to have to do. I can't buy and return another set out of sheer embarrassment.

And that's just curtains. I have also returned a swimsuit, a pair of snow/rain boots for P and three different shirts. Like I said I am having an off week!

We were supposed to head out of town this weekend but decided last minute to stay home. Lots of travels coming up and my photography schedule is crazy packed. So I think I am just going to enjoy this last weekend of no plans. I also managed to convince David that I am going to take our holiday photos - with a remote and tripod. So this should be...interesting.

I see it as a challenge and I am kinda oddly excited - and hey any excuse to buy better photography gear has me saying yes. So I am on the hunt for a great tripod. If you have any recommendations let me know in the comments. 

So just random this and that and some pics of my lady from last night. Happy halfway through the week!

Another weekend has come and gone and look at me - first time in month's I've got a post all set for Monday. This weekend was actually super productive which feels so nice. So many honey do things got checked off both David's and my list. On Sunday it poured rain all day and even though it got in the way of our pumpkin patch plans we donned our raincoats and made the best of it.

I've been having P skip her nap on the weekends because it makes bedtime SO MUCH EASIER. There is no complaints and she is literally lights out in minutes. It's been so nice hearing "I love you mama" and then silence. I hope that when her new room gets underway it stays like this!

Just a few snaps from our weekend!
