Here's what we've been up to according to Instagram. I'm Angeeoctobermorning on Instagram if you want to follow.

We went shopping with great grandma. Which means the girls got marshmallows and gummy bears. I don't argue, because that's what grandmas do, spoil their grand-babies.
Olivia is in love with these pink cars and wants us to get one too. 
My sweet friend decided to shave her hair off. I admire her bravery and she totally makes bald look sexy. You should check her out here. Wowzers! 
I get tetanus every time I look at the slide. I won't let the girls get near it. 
Quiet kids is never a good thing... 
Making play dough has become a weekly favorite. The girls love dumping the ingredients in the pot and touching the play dough when it's still warm. 
Both my girls eat peppers like apples. And I'm not complaining...well maybe a little. Those tiny little pepper seeds make a big mess. 
Lately the only way Emily will eat her dinner is if Liv feeds it to her. Hey, whatever works. 
I hope you have a great weekend. Thanks for reading!

Hello Monday

Hello to a new school year. So many of my friends are sending their little ones to kindergarten today and my heart goes out to them. I'm always an emotional wreck on the first and last day of school. I'm sure I'll be a basket case when it's time for my girls to go to school.
Hello to acts of kindness. To kick off the first day of school my moms group left "first day of school messages" at all the schools in our district. I hope it puts a smile on some faces tomorrow.

Hello to a new routine. Since school is back in session we're starting out homeschool routine this week.

Hello to cute smocks. I've had this smock in the closet waiting until Emily was big enough to wear it. It was a little tight but oh so cute. When I took it off her, I saw the's size 9 months. Oops.

I hope everyone has a great Monday!

Simple Things {shoes}

Earlier this week I asked the girls to get shoes on so we could go outside and play. Love it.

Happy Friday everyone! Here is a look at our week according to Instagram. Linking up with Life Rearranged

Liv brought an elephant to play with while we shopped and then lost it. I found it. I guess he needs more fiber in his diet. 
Some days I just want to close the door and pretend that the fairies will clean it while I'm sleeping. It hasn't happened yet. Maybe I should add a fairy door.
 We always stop and say hello to the sunflowers when we visit the farmer's market.
I've found that editing photos for my shop is my least favorite task.
 While I was getting fabric cut at Hobby Lobby, one of the employees made a flower for Olivia. She said thank you, then asked for a pink one.
Shut the front door! She wearing SHORTS! She never, ever, ever wears SHORTS! Dresses only. This was the first (and I'm sure last) time she'll wear SHORTS this year. 
I'll never get tired of this view. 
If you want to follow along you can find me on Intsagram as Octobersmorning. Thanks for stopping by!

Simple Things {vacation}

A few weeks ago we went home to South Carolina for a little vacation. We spent a few days at the beach with my mom (we stayed in a hotel while the girls stayed at my mom's house), then we celebrated my niece's first birthday and ended our trip with a couple of days at my dad's house. We had a wonderful time and can't wait until our visit next year.

It's a new day!

I'm very excited to announce that I've started a new chapter in my life. After years of daydreaming I've finally decided to open up my own Etsy shop. I'm creating fabric bloom bookmarks that grow with the size of your book. I absolutely love these bookmarks and get so excited every time I make a new one. I have a lot of our products on the drawing board that I'm excited about too. Come check everything out!

Happy weekend!
