I’ve made it pretty clear (several times) how I feel about Fall, but just in case….
BEST SEASON EVER.
I love Fall.
And even better than that? My daughter really loves Fall, too.
Maybe it’s because our birthday’s are in the Fall…I mean, that could help the reasoning. But really, the weather, the layers, the pumpkin everything….heaven. Pure. Heaven.
The past few weeks have been pretty beautiful. With the exception of our First snow fall last week (get it together, Chicago!), it’s been in the 50’s and 60’s almost all the time. We’ve spent A LOT of time outside.
We visited the pumpkin patch, we’ve gone on long walks, Olivia got the cutest new Fall wardrobe thanks to her Papa, and that included the cutest Fall jacket, we went to a Halloween party, gone on family dates, slept in, took baths, drank warm drinks (Olivia’s current favorite is “Ot Cha Cha”….aka hot chocolate) and basically, we have just been enjoying this beautiful season.

Olivia was an Angel for Halloween this year….and I was the devil.
Very fitting for both of us….that’s what Dominic said anyway :x
I was going to make her an Indian for actual Halloween, I bought the materials and everything….but you know….life….so I bought this 2 dollar pair of baby wings and I actually kind of love it so much better!
My sister and I have been going to this Halloween park thing called “Safely Spooky” since we were little. As we got older, she didn’t go anymore but Dominic and I continued the tradition with our niece and last year was our first time with Olivia. Even though Dominic had to work, my sister and I still took her. One thing you should probably know is that my sister hates Halloween as much as I do. We’re not into haunted, scary stuff. This park thing is usually so PG, but this year there were things following us and jumping out at us and it was just not okay. Olivia was in her stroller, minding her own business, acting all cool, while my sister and I were behind her, arm in arm, ready for it to be over.
We met a few friends of ours at a pizza place called Paisans. They were having a Halloween party and since we were already out….we figured, why not.
It was a blast. We ate, they had a few drinks (I was DD!), and we danced all night long.
I have the best video’s of Olivia dancing that I’ll include in Friday’s post.
She was having such a good time, and took up the entire center of the dance floor. Everyone watched from the side lines while our girl go her groove on. It’s was the cutest thing ever. In fact, I actually had to pull her away from the dance floor because it was 11:15pm.
And happy feet needed to go home and go to bed.
Dominic and I are having such a good time with this little girl. She does have her moments, yes, but all these good moments definitely cancel out the bad ones (even though in the moment, it doesn’t feel like it!)
Tomorrow is Halloween and of course it’s supposed to rain….I really hope not though.
And then this weekend we’re going away to Galena with Dominic’s parents and I am very excited about that.
So yes….our fall so far. What have you guys been up to?
