A personal update and a peak into the future.

Wow, November already! This holiday season is flying by. I hope you guys enjoyed the giveaways, recipes, and tutorials during my Halloween event for the month of October! I had a lot of fun doing it! Now that things have calmed down a bit on the blog front I thought I'd write a personal update... lots have been going on!

Cayden is now 3 and a half months old and thriving! He's rolling over and starting to hold his own bottle! He's at such a fun age where he's 'talking' and laughing and interacting with us more and more. I love it! I think teething has started because he's constantly chewing on his hands and drooling like crazy! Yesterday he celebrated his first Halloween and I think he had a lot of fun! He was the cutest lil bear ever! (Pictures will be posted)

Mando and I are doing a lot better. In the beginning we were over-tired and over-stressed while adjusting to parenthood and fighting a lot, but now we finally feel like we know what we're doing and aren't arguing as much. I'm getting better at saving money and bargain shopping so the financial stress has subsided a little bit too. Finding time to nurture your relationship while being a new mom is hard but I make it a priority. I really do love him with all of my heart and he's a fantastic father.

I can't wait for the next few months. I'm having Thanksgiving at my house this year and cooking everything on my own for the first time! I can't wait to decorate, put the table together, and spend all day barefoot in my apron! Black Friday always means waking up at the crack of dawn and shopping and I look forward to it every year. Mando is turning 32 in December and I have to figure out something special to do for him. I'm thinking maybe a Laker game and a night in a hotel? We'll see. Christmas will be all about the babies this year and I plan on making some sweet handmade gifts for everyone else. I think it's so much for special than just spending a bunch of money on things. After the new year we have our 2 year anniversary, my birthday, and Valentine's Day! In March we're planning on moving... as you can see we are VERY busy. But don't worry, I plan to blog my way through it.

Speaking of blogging, I hope you guys are enjoying what I've been doing! I plan to have more craft tutorials and recipes for everyone. Hopefully Santa will bring me a new camera this year so I can take some decent pictures too (anyone want to donate a camera to a poor blogger?) If there's anything specifically you want to see leave me a comment and I'll see what I can do! Suggestions are comments are always welcomed.

I'll share pictures from Halloween soon, but for now I'll leave you with this! Last minute Halloween costumes are the best. Happy November everyone!
