What a Weekend & Halloween

I'm BAAACK!! I haven't been on here since Thurs. and to me that is a LONG time, ha ha (so sad!) I had such a good weekend going to NWA to attend a wedding! I stayed with my BFF and had a great time being with her and her hubby and baby girl!! We had a such a busy fun weekend and took a TON of pics!! I'm going to have to post some of the pics over the course of the next few days because there are just so many. But today I think I will post pics from Halloween. Friday night was the wedding, and then Saturday we went to Eureka Springs for the day then came home to get Avery ready for her first Halloween. Ash and I hadn't really planned on dressing up -but at the last minuet decided it would be fun. We thought of some really funny, quick ideas on the way home - but then I thought of one that was cute and easy - and that's what we did . . .

Can you guess what we were????




Cook -E's . . . get it?? Cookies A.K.A Cook-E's. We are such dorks, but thought it was a cute lil idea. We just used the aprons Ash had, and on our way home from Eureka, ran in Hobby Lobby and got the E's. They were half off, which made them $5 - which is all our costume cost us! Then we just glammed it up. I threw on a red headband, red lipstick and I was done! It was fun!! Ash's lil girl, Avery was a Lady Bug and she was SOO stinkin cute too!!! I've never seen a cuter Lady Bug in my life!! After taking her Trick-Or Treating, we all went to eat a lil Mexican food. It was a fun, fun night!!





As I said before, I have A LOT more pics from the weekend: wedding and our day trip to Eureka Springs - so I will post those as the week goes on. I always feel so sad leaving NWA and my best friend! I still consider it home since I lived there from 3 rd grade till my Freshman year of college. I started crying a little but as I was getting out of town. It was just bittersweet. But I sure was glad to get home too and see my honey!! We do not like being away from each other at all. He kept calling me over and over to see where I was cause he was so anxious to see me. When I got home he had cleaned our bathroom and it was spotless. He cleaned the double sinks, bathtub, toilet AND shower!!! It was SO sweet! I ended up taking a nice long bath and enjoyed it so much because everything was so clean and sparkling!! I was in bed before mid-night and got some good sleep!!!

Hope everyone had a great weekend like I did!!! Happy Monday!
