Halloween Weekend

I don't like this holiday Mom, it's SCARY!

This weekend was SO MUCH FUN!!

On Saturday we hung out with some great friends of ours (hi J!) and their sweet daughter, aka Trey's girlfriend. We went to the mall and had lunch at Nordstrom cafe. Have you ever asked for the nutritional information there? Don't do it!!! TRUST ME. You don't want to know...

Then Saturday evening I met up with Whitney Caroline Designs, Stuttering Shell, In No Simple Language and Naturally Caffeinated Family! It had been exactly one year since our last girls night out and Whitney went above and beyond to make reservations, reserve a suite at a swanky hotel, and get us a table at a fun bar! We had a BLAST!!

This was my first night out since I've had Trey. I was so anxious about it, for weeks just the thought of it would make my stomach turn. The idea of leaving him to go do something "fun" was just tearing me up inside.

I knew it needed to be done, I knew he would be more than fine with the hubs and he goes to bed at 9pm sharp now so really, I wouldn't miss much of his evening.

But I still cried... twice.

Once I got there I was much better. It was so great to be with my girlfriends, to be away from the house, in non-maternity clothes, with my first glass of wine since LAST November. See, I told you... it was a big night!

I kept harassing asking the hubs for pics of Trey while I was out and he kept putting me off.

Well, right as we were leaving dinner - this came through on my phone!! How cool is this app for the iPad?! Download it now - it's called Moxier Collage.

(And yes, they went looking at the houses I entered in Mojito Maven's tacky decoration contest!)

On Halloween day we had the hub's family over for some chili and Trey-time before the trick or treaters came knocking.

Sadly the costume we had purchased for Trey (it was 3-6 months which what he wears in everything else - Mom lesson learned on sizing!) so we just had him wear his cute skeleton romper.

We had so much fun hanging out with all of our neighbors and giving out candy. It'll be awesome once Trey is able to go trick or treating!

(We had to make another collage! SO fun!)

I hope you all had a wonderful Halloween weekend too!!

Aww…I’m so glad you had a nice Halloween weekend and that first pic of Trey is priceless. I’m glad you had an evening out with the girls and it sounds like Whitney did a great job putting everything together.

I love the collages and think that app sounds really cool. Just another reason for wanting an iPad ;)

I love the last family photo of you guys on the porch!

Hello, just started following your blog! I'm so jealous you had baby on Halloween, i kept passing the baby costumes and wishing my little girl would come early.

I also envy that glass of wine you had with the girls!

BTW the collages look great! Trey is to cute.
