Halloween Recap and November Goals

Better late than never right?

I'm back to feeling inspired to blog, hopefully I can keep the mojo going because I'm supposed to sponsor someone way cool at the end of this month. Don't want to sponsor her with blank pages over here in Katy-ville.

So Halloween!

Boomer is slowly but surely working her way through all of the Disney Princesses. She's already told me she wants to be Snow White next year. Oy vey!

On beggars night here in Columbus the weather was super nasty, and I'm sorry I'm not letting my kid get sick for some candy. So in 30 minutes (the drive home) I tried to come up with a fun night for her and roped in her dad and my mom. Et Voila!

Kitty Momma

My mom dressed up as herself circa 1972, but ya'll know how she feels about me using her image on the interwebs, so you'll have to just imagine.

Look ma! A dinglehopper!

Side eye. Learned it from my momma.

We always take the silliest pics.

Daddy daughter love.

Jack and Jill!

Boomer was surprised first when her dad got her out of the car. (Dad night is usually Wednesday, not Thursday.) We told her she could pick a restaurant and that we were picking up Mimi too. She chose Olive Garden and the whole restaurant called her Princess Ariel all night! It was so cute, and she just glowed every time. 'Would you like some cheese on your spaghetti Princess Ariel?' I also happened to have a large bag of candy that a vendor sent my office, so she didn't go without a sugar high. 

So everyone has been posting goals for the month lately and I'm thinking about what some of mine will be:

1. Read more. This goal is for Boomer and myself. We need to not be so attached to screens. Also I just miss a good book.

2. Stay in my budget. I downloaded some awesome software that is really helping me get my financial house in order so to speak, and I want to stick with it. I've told Boomer no tweaking (i.e. eating out on the run, buying 'stuff'.) Poor kid is already sick of hearing about the budget.

3. Exercise once a week. I know that doesn't seem like much, but if I do it I'll be proud.

4. Get at least 2/3 of holiday shopping done!

Aw, what a fun night! Also, I'm a wee bit obsessed with your cat and its white toes.

I'm with you on the reading more. I've been in a reading rut and I miss it.
