Fall Bucket List

Fall is OFFICIALLY here and before we know it, IT will be gone in the blink of an eye. It always seems that time flies during my favorite season!


Here’s my ambitious bucket list for the Month of October!


Pick apples at a local orchard!


Bonfires with friends!

Cider mill for fresh cider and doughnuts! We are lucky we live super close to Yates and they have the BEST doughnuts around!


Zoo Boo! The Detroit Zoo hosts trick or treating on the weekends for the babes. They can dress up and see the animals!



Scary movie night. Halloween jammies + popcorn + Hocus Pocus? Doesn’t get much better!


Pumpkin picking with our pumpkins!!!


Pumpkin carving!

Visit the Firehouse. My brother is a firefighter and we love to go to their Fall open house!




…and wear all the plaid!

What’s on your agenda for Fall?


Friday Favorites; A Taste of Fall

The past week has been an unexpected taste of Fall and I’m not complaining. We finally turned the AC off, opened our windows, put on hoodies, and started fully embraced all things pumpkin.

I’m so excited to be linking up with other bloggers for Friday Favorites!


On Monday I grabbed the babes from daycare and we did a little pumpkin shopping. Pumpkin spice anything is a favorite for me! I just love this time of year so much!


…speaking of all things pumpkin. I’m counting down the days until the return of the Pumpkin Spice Latte. I saw this on Instagram and loved it.


We took our family photos this past week and as usual I am in love. I’ll share more of the pics later but our photographer Kathy Davies is one of my favorites. She’s been taking our pictures since Ari was a baby and I just how she interacts with the kids and always captures great memories for us.


Last weekend we hit up a local fair. Cowboy boots with her Matilda Jane?! A new favorite for sure!


We are about to embark on a road trip to Virginia for my sister in law’s wedding. The babes are standing up and I cannot get over how much of a gentleman Ari looks like. This burlap bow tie from Country Couture is def a favorite.

    IMG_8559Pretty sure this will be one of Giada’s favorite fall outfits;

The Harper tunic from Matilda Jane and a matching bow from Bow Kay!


…and I can’t forget about Fall favorites for ME!… I have this scarf & shirt coming and I cannot wait! They are going to make the perfect pair this Fall!  Don’t forget to use code “bestdressedbabes” over at Fresh Apparel for free shipping on any order!

Fall Fun!

Earlier this Fall we had our friend Kathy from http://www.kathydaviesphotography.com/ shoot some family photos of us.  We were armed with a wagon, a ladder, several blankets, changes of clothes, and PLENTY of Fruit by the Foot with hopes of getting some great images.   Per usual Kathy captured some of the best images ever and I am so thankful for her!


Finding coordinating outfits was quite the task, but I am SO happy with it all came together!  Of course I needed to find a matching hoodie for the doodle! He wears a little boy size 10!


With all the craziness of our lives these days, I am so glad to have these images of our family.
