Fall always makes me want to write, even when I’m technically on a hiatus 🍁
This is Moo’s first fall! And I turn 30 next month! Despite 2020’s best efforts, we’re going to enjoy these last three months. (I’m ignoring the fact that the election is happening during this time- not neglecting to vote, though!) (Also ignoring the fact that my wallet was stolen from my car yesterday. Grrrrr.)
I dyed my hair purple for the spooky season. It took a few attempts but I’ve got it where I want it and our shower is 100% purple now. (From washing- I had it professionally done.) It is what it is.
We’re still having our annual Halloween party!! I’m excited. We’ve revamped it for COVID, of course. It will be outside in the backyard, lots of social distancing, masks and hand sanitizer available. Instead of an evening party we’re doing a kid-friendly afternoon bon fire. I’m pretty snobby about COVID protocol so you can rest assured that it’s going to either be safe or cancelled. Ha.
Speaking of Halloween, I have a pretty good idea of what our first family-of-5 costume will be… We’re not going to take M trick-or-treating (because safety and because she has no clue), but if our town decides to still have trick or treating I saw this cool idea in Parents magazine (I’m a real mom if I reference Parents magazine, right?) where you decorate the front door and post treat bags there. I’d still sit on the other side of the porch to ensure greedy little fingers only take one 😉
My bday is mid-October and we haven’t made any real plans yet… What I want to do and what we’re able to do/comfortably doing doesn’t really line up so we haven’t decided on anything. Hopefully we figure it out soon…
I’ll be around a little more in the next few weeks. (Fall gives me that creative spark ✨) Next Monday I’m remembering Lylee a year after her death, on Thursday I’m recapping my 3Q goals & sharing my new ones, & then the following week is SUYB day!
So I guess I’ll see you around 🧡

For some reason I always forget you’re the same age as my brother. He will be 30 on 2nd October. You have your life together so much more than I did at 30!
Hahaha! I think late twenties/thirty is a weird age. Everyone is at such different points in life at this age!
Good for you making changes for your COVID protocol party. It just blows my mind when people gives no cares about that. You gotta do something for your sweet M’s first Fall!!! Raise ’em up right 🙂
I can’t STAND it when people carry on like nothing is different. No safety, no concern. GRRRR. We will definitely be cautious, spaced out, and outside! And if we can’t be, we won’t do it 😉
Well, I haven’t been around much in blogging world lately, so first things first – I LOVE your new profile pic! You look fantastic and what a fabulous shade of lipstick! I have Max’s Halloween costume. He is not amused but I am. And honestly no one but me sees in him it but I don’t care. I need every laugh I can get this year! It’s tough with birthdays and such to figure how to celebrate safely. I keep telling myself it’s okay to postpone it until I can do something “right” too, even though it can be disappointing/frustrating too.
Well thank you! I love that hat and lip shade 😀
I haven’t gotten ANY of our costumes yet. And I still need Kyle to agree to go along with it. Ha. There are many protocols in our house when it comes to Halloween Costume Approval. LOL
Definitely ok to postpone! Safety over everything else!
I’m honestly just excited as you are for fall (autumn ;))
Yay yay yay!!
Fall is the BEST. I don’t really know what I’ll do on actual Halloween, but I’m hoping to soak in as much as I can in October that’s still relatively safe to do. I’m glad you have a way to still do your Halloween party. A friend of mine said I could bring my new screen and projector to her place to watch movies one night – since she has a lot more room to spread out, so that might be the Halloween party for this year, which works for me!!
I guess our town is, in fact, still planning to host trick or treating (on Halloween). So I get to make my door craft! A movie night would be so fun! Hope you guys make it happen!
