    It’s so beautiful there!
    And it’s super cute how your boys are so into their costumes. Haha!

    Yeah! Cousins getting to hang out! And yes,I was just thinking the same thing. Halloween night I was all melancholy and saying good bye October I miss you already. So not ready for the “holiday season”!!

    Is it too late for me to grow up in Oregon?

    I’ve been wondering the same thing! Only I keep thinking it should be May or something.

    Aw!!! I put my baby in that same exact monkey costume this year! He waddled when he walked in it, so cute.

    The bent sword – love it! Makes me wonder what they did to bend it.

    Oh, the little monkey melts my heart! His expression is precious and I just want to rescue him from those Ninjas super-lickity-split! :)

    Repeat comment time!

    Just read you on the front page YAHOO! Didn’t realize it was you until halfway through the article when I stopped “amen”ing long enough to say “hey I recognize that couch….and that kid…that one too!” :) Good job, Mama!

    Another family with the monkey costume over here! And you’re not the only one October blew past – I’ve remarked on it as well and everyone around me nodded.

Loss, love, and the beauty of human connections. space hypnotistslovestory The Hypnotist's Love Story, by Liane Moriarty I didn't love the book she's best known for, The Husband's Secret, but I really liked this one and What Alice Forgot. Her writing style reminds me of a twistier, more suspenseful Elizabeth Berg. space rosieproject The Rosie Project, by Graeme Simsion Funny and quirky and endearing and best of all, it's the sort of book you just can't put down. space marylou Mary-lou Manizer Highlight/Shimmer Powder This is basically a shimmery (not glittery!) powder that adds a really nice luminescent highlighting glow. I sweep it on the top of my cheekbones, on top of blush, and blend. space pb2 PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter MIRACLE FOOD. It's powdered peanut butter you mix with water (or add to a smoothie, or...) and it has a fraction of the fat and calories of regular peanut butter. Plus: delicious. space [More things I like...]
