in october

Screen Shot 2015-10-29 at 9.54.13 AMThe month of October came and went so quickly that I almost can’t believe that it was even here. These are some of the things that we got up to during that busy time.

Beard Oil DIY - 9Did you happen to see my do-it-yourself posts? First, I featured an easy beard oil tutorial. Then I had a duo candy and candle pumpkin holder, just in time for Halloween.

il_fullxfull.735150734_32zlI had several fashion posts, from a cropped jacket restyle, to a movie date outfit, to my favourite baby finds on Etsy.

Pregnancy Pillow - 3Speaking of babies, I shared my best purchase thus far, and celebrated being 20 weeks along!

Movie Date OOTD - 10Surprisingly, we only went to one film last month! However, we did watch several online, and I discussed the scariest ones here.

Edmonton Trip - 13We also took a weekend trip to our dream Canadian city, and one that we hope to move to in just a few short months.

IMG_0887Last but not least, Truman celebrated his birthday at the end of October. He is now 3 years old.

IMG_0793Now that we are already into November, the days are getting shorter and colder. Soon there will be snow, and I will be having my 30th birthday this month. Yikes!

  3. That snoogle pillow looks like it might be great even for non-pregnant people trying to do better at sleeping on their sides, like me. I’m going to check that out.
    All the best as your “special time” continues. I can’t imagine how excited you must be everyday.

    • You know, I was contemplating writing a blog post on this very thing! You are so smart.

      I honestly can’t see myself giving up this pillow, even once the baby comes. I truly believe that every bed needs one. Not only does it replace a pillow entirely, but it lifts your legs to a more comfortable/healthier position while sleeping. Every night I curl up to it, and my husband scoots in behind me and uses it as well. Additionally, each time that I come into the bedroom, either my cat or my dog are fast asleep in one of its nooks.

      This pillow is heaven for people and animals alike. I especially think that you as a runner (with undoubtedly aches and pains) would benefit greatly from it!


  4. Oh my Truman is a cutie!!! ( he kind of looks like my puppy pal Jazz, they could be brothers!!) So funny!
