How was your Halloween? We lucked out and the rain stopped Halloween morning. Em + her dance friends were all fairies – Periwinkle, Tinker Bell and a woodland fairy – and went trick-or-treating together. So cute!!

This year, not only did we hit up a local pumpkin patch, we also drove out to Bastrop for the Fall Fest + Corn Maze. We promptly got rained out but had a blast nevertheless. Looking forward to trick or treating tonight! Em’s going as her favorite fairy.

bee bash 2013 // austin

This weekend, some special friends came to Austin to celebrate friendships + have fun.

Some things we did? Well, G’Raj Mahal Cafe + Rainey Street, Iron CactusEsther’s Follies, 6th StreetPhil’s Icehouse, Central Market, Pinthouse Pizza and The Oasis. There was also Shady Grove, hiking Mount Bonnell, a Pubcrawler, Austin Water Bikes + Bats, shopping on SoCo, Amy’s Ice Cream, Torchy’s Tacos and Stubb’s Bar-B-Q.

Needless to say, I was able to cross a few things off our Austin list.

Thanks for the ton-o-fun, girls!

Here’s what Em loved when she was two and a half years old. She also loved a few big things like her trampoline but these are smaller items that are priced nicely for gift giving.

Doctor Set – This is a great set with lots of fun things inside.

Matching Game – There are many versions of this game. For boys, I like gifting the superhero set.

Storybook Collection Books – We got this book on our second trip to Disney. I fell in love with the vintage graphics. It’s a beautiful, thick book with gilded pages and it contains seventeen short stories. Again, there are many versions including a Christmas edition and a superhero version.

Puzzles – Four wooden puzzles are included in this set and they are all contained in a divided wooden box.

Look and Find Books – Em loves seek and find books. This is her absolute favorite. At two and a half years old, I think she read it daily.

If we’re friends on Facebook, then you saw that I just got a new phone [whoo hoo! :] Now, I’m on the hunt for a case that won’t cover up the lovely gold. Here’s what I narrowed it down to. A bumper, a clear case with hand painted flowers, a bumper with clear back and a mock case by the same company that my last case came from.

Do you have any other contenders I should add to my list?
