Pumpkin Patch Visit - Annapolis

Happy Halloween – Pumpkin Patch

Happy Halloween!!!  My kiddos are so excited, I am not sure how they are going to get through their days.  Although Chandler is pretty psyched since she has a Field Trip at the Pumpkin Farm today and I am chaperoning!!

Last Friday afternoon, Nicole and I came upon this Pumpkin Patch on our way up to Annapolis to get the husbands after they took the boat to the Marina we purchased it from.   It needs to be winterized, and this was the delivery day.  The Pumpkin Patch was perfect for Nicole and I…in other words – not too big, totally manageable 😉

This 5-some has basically known one another since birth.  We spend a lot of time together even at different ages, different schools and different sports teams.  What they have is special and I hope it never changes.

The kids hit the corn maze first!!

After corn maze victories, we headed to the “patch” to pick out pumpkins.  I swear I had nothing to do with all three of my kids choosing white pumpkins, but I loved every second of it.

And of course I wanted just ONE cute family picture of us at the Pumpkin Patch.  Shay just refuses to cooperate these days with pictures.  Thank goodness for Nicole’s patience and humor I was able to keep a smile through the attempts…

oh poor dear Shay…

Before we headed out, we took some more photos of the kids having fun on hay bales.  Too cute to not share.

Monday Blues

How was your weekend???  Ours began on Friday because the girls did not have school.  My girlfriend, Nicole, and I took the kids to Annapolis because Peter and Mike took the boat to the marina we purchased the boat from, to have it winterized.  The guys hit some choppy water so we had time to kill with the kiddos and hit up a Pumpkin Patch.  Super fun and we got some super cute photos.  I am going to post those tomorrow 🙂

This outfit.  I know, it is fairly simple and not mind-blowing.  But I adore it.  It is a look that will never go out of style.  That being said, I love that there are a couple elements to keep the look fresh.

First is the uneven hem of the jeans.  So now, so good and totally generation-less.  Secondly is the untucked half of the shirt.  I love it.  It may not be for everyone but it is a small way to stay modern (the tiniest bit of edge) and not too preppy.

Today’s Five Under Fifty is a Fall Dress version.  There is something about Fall dresses that has me doing happy dances!!  I love that you can rock them with booties, tennis shoes, knee high boots or my personal favorite, OTK (over the knee) boots.  Fall dresses are usually warm and cozy which is a huge plus for me.  What are your thoughts?!?!

Sweat Dress with Exposed Seams and Flared Sleeves – $29

I love the exposed seams on this dress.   It is so casual, yet throw a blanket scarf and cute booties or OTK booties and it’s a tad dressier for any event you have.

Cutout Sleeve Hoodie Dress – $29.40

This just screams comfort.  Here is a perfect example of how wearing sneakers with a dress is so chic!!  How cute would this be with a vest as your top layer!?!?

One Shoulder Shift Dress – $35

Here is a dressier version of a perfect Fall dress.  Short black booties would be so cute with this dress.  You’re still on trend with the one shoulder yet it’s so timeless because it is so simple.

Strappy Swing Dress – $39

This dress is tied with the next one as my favorite.  The strappy V Neck is just so darn cute and that single detail makes this a stand out dress!!  Booties, sock booties (pictured with this dress) or OTK boots would be perfect with this dress!!

Balloon Sleeve Sweater Dress – $45

So, I said this dress is tied with the one above for my favorite, but I am leaning towards this one.  Why??  Because it looks SO warm!  Plus, the balloon sleeves are so cute on this dress.  I love the booties the model is wearing with this dress, but personally, I would wear my favorite OTK boots with this!!
