Comments Off on Belle, Chip and a Storm Trooper | Halloween Costumes 2017

This year may be the quickest passing year (so it seems) yet! Still can’t believe that Halloween has come and gone. Before we switch gears on the blog to all things Christmas I wanted to make sure that I uploaded some photos from our 2017 Halloween adventures. Mostly for my sake to remember the kids Halloween Costumes, and partially because I know some of you wouldn’t mind to take a peek either.

Ezra went to school full on dressed in his costume while Sophie did her preschool in a set of dollar store fairy wings. I had a pretty good feeling that if she went in her dress, she may not have any dress left to wear at the end of it. After preschool we did a quick costume change (literally so quick, did it in the car) and then went Downtown Abbotsford. I love trick-or-treating Downtown Abbotsford, you often run into friends and it’s perfect for younger kids that you might not want to take out in the evening. This has become a bit of a tradition as we have gone for the last three (maybe even four) years.

We met up with my sister and her boys and the kids couldn’t get enough of it! They ate as they went, admired the spooky decor and were definitely is good spirits (but let’s be honest, why wouldn’t they be? Everyone they saw gave them a new candy ha!)

I got to snap some photos of the girls before we got going. Evelyn’s costume I made the night before (cost me under $10, win!). It was one of those things where you get this “awesome idea” and you really don’t know if it will turn out or not. Well, happy to say, it was just as I imagined it. I couldn’t find a Chip costume anywhere locally and so this is what we came up with. Sophie walked around saying, “I’m Belle,” and “Look Mom, there’s another Belle!” She was pretty good at placing her hands on her hips and walking with purpose. It really was the perfect costume for her.

After picking Ezra up from school we went to visit some family and that is where I attempted a photo of the three of them. Whelp. That was a fail. By this point Evelyn’s costume straps had ripped and didn’t stay around her waist or neck anymore. Ezra declined the ask of holding it in front of her and when Sophie volunteered, she decided she better give it a try instead. So there are what I got. (I do think that my MIL might have captured them as she starting clicking before I did, fingers crossed!)

Another win was picking up Ezra’s costume from the Big Box store in Abbotsford the weekend before Halloween. I thought we were getting a steal of a deal for $16 and then when she rang us up is was only just over $8. Even cheaper then Evelyn’s.. amazing! Note to self, always procrastinate Halloween shopping, cross your fingers that you find something good and save some money! ha!

In the evening we went to our old neighbourhood as where we live now is too rural for trick-or-treating (or neighbours said they have never gotten anyone, haha!) We bumped into friends from Ezra’s school, got to see some old neighbours and had a great time exploring. I couldn’t believe how quickly Sophie was moving from house to house this year. Kept up to her big brother for most of the night.

Hope you all had a great Halloween! Now who is ready for Christmas?

  • Got to hang with some goats and do a little toga today, with about 400 other people. Have you tried goat yoga? Would you??
  • There’s some new faces around here and it’s been a while since I did a little intro, an about me per se... just a little bit more random.

1. I’ve lived in the same town my whole life. Some may think it’s boring.. I’d call it loyal 😅 .. either way, I know a lot about Abbotsford.
2. If you hold your hand up, palm facing away from you. Pull your thumb back and see how far you can go. Mine can touch the back of my arm, it’s forever been my “talent”.
3. It’s been 5 years (almost to the day) since I started my blog. Growing up I wanted to be a nurse, then went to school to be a police officer, changed gears into business and marketing, graduated with graphic design and its led me to hear. I never had big goals or felt like I was on the right path, but motherhood and this space has brought me all the feels.
4. We’ve been looking for land to grow some flowers of our own. My husband grew up on a flower farm (both the peonies and iris’ pictured are from their farm), property prices can just go ahead and come down a little now.
5. I don’t know if the feeling of being done is for real.. like we feel like we are done having kids but I’d be fibbing if I said it doesn’t come to mind every now and again.

That’s all for now friends. Share a little something about you below — say hi if you are new hear and thanks for reading til the end 🥰🙌🏻
  • Throwing it back to the other day when I went for an evening dip with my beaver @float.eh — it was such a hoot heading to the beach with @juliechristine_xo and gave me a peek into how much fun this summer is going to be.⠀ ⠀
#ad As you can see these aren’t your typical floaties... or should I say @float.eh ’s 😉 They are proudly Canadian, made with quality in mind. You gotta check out their website and see what other fun Canadian designs they have. [ go to float-eh.ca or see my story highlights for the link ] 🇨🇦
  • “When’s the last time you did something for the first time?” Those were words spoken to our group before starting our Tough Mudder course this past weekend in Whistler. Holy moly guys, I was nervous getting started on that course. Let’s just say... nervous shits are real 😅😂🙊 but that’s what makes it so great. Doing something that literally scares the shit outta you. We all pushed through, all 16km and 25 obstacles and it was FUN, hard but really freaking fun. Even though I’m hobbling around today, dang foot cramp (and literally sore all over) I’m so pumped on doing something new, pushing myself and having such an amazing group of friends tackle it together.

PS our men of tough mudder not pictured but SO equally appreciated.

  • Opened up my second Maple Box today and loving the natural and organic products that I am able to discover. The @hollowtree1987 candle and @sealuxe scrub are two of my favourites already.

I’ve loved how each box has introduced me to both self care and wellness products focused on creating healthier lifestyles. Head to @maplemagazinecanada to discover more info on ordering for yourself. Spring box available, while supplies last (and last I heard it was limited) #ad #maplemagazine #mapleboxcanada
