No. 1
I'll be sharing more next week about all the crafts that I've been doing with Beau lately, but last night I painted this ornament.. I already can't wait to get it back after being glazed. Starting to prepare everything for Thanksgiving and Christmas is SO exciting. It's going to be so sweet having Beau's first holidays!

I just re-watched the last season of Gilmore Girls to get ready for the reboot and man, it made me so ready! I was reminded of how different the 7th season was from the rest of the series, and reminded me how disappointed I was with the end. I'm really helping that Netflix will provide me with the closure I've wanted for ages!

This week was the finale of the One Room Challenge. If you aren't familiar, a bunch of bloggers are challenged to completely renovate a room in just six weeks, blogging through the process. It's incredibly interesting and inspirational, especially for me as I continue to settle us into our new home. I'm planning on sharing a starting point home tour at the beginning of Thanksgiving week, because a few weeks later y'all will get a peek into our holiday decor... speaking of holiday decor... YAY!

A few weeks ago Beau REALLY needed a haircut. His sideburns had gotten embarrassingly long. Such a weird thing to deal with for a six month old! Usually our hairdresser and friend, Rachel, comes to our house to cut Beau's hair but I needed a trim too so we went to the salon. Beau did so much better through the whole process than I thought he would. He just sat in my lap the whole time!

Another milestone going on in our house is the beginning stages of some baby rolls developing. :) I don't think that Ben really ever had them as a baby, so I was skeptical about Beau getting them, but here they come! I love sharing these random Friday thoughts. The photos are always imperfect, but it's an accurate snapshot of what's going on in our house. Hope y'all enjoy!

  1. The Christmas linkup is so fun! I will be participating, happy Friday! :)

  2. Thanks for mentioning the ORC! Maybe you can try jumping in, next April? Love the baby pics :)

  3. Baby rolls, Gilmore Girls, and personalized ornaments! So much goodness! Ok, we don't have babies yet, but I am so curious to see how you made the Christmas ornaments?! I can't wait to do that one day with our little ones! I've seen Shay from Mix and Match Family do her personalized holiday plates with her kids and I think they are the CUTEST.

  4. That ornament is sweet!! Love it. I just started Gilmore Girls Season 7 tonight... we've been binge watching for a few weeks now. ;) Looking forward to the Christmas link up!!

  5. I'm rewatching Gilmore Girls to get ready for the new episodes and am on Season 7 right now. I completely agree with everything you said! SO ready to see what's going to happen.

  6. Look at Beau sitting at the salon like a pro! So cute! I am watching Gilmore Girls right now! I am only in the middle of season 3, so I probably won't be done in time for the Netflix series, but I am already looking forward to it!
