Weekend round up and our week ahead!

Ah Monday. The weekend is over, a new week has begun...and this one is shaping up to be monstrously busy. Which I am actually totally ok with, as long as my teething toddler cooperates with me a bit.

This weekend was fun and a bit low key for us. On Friday we went to our unit's Trunk-or-Treat event which was super cute. We met a group of our friends there which, funnily enough, all of the kids were dressed as super heroes (with the exception of one adorably teeny tiny Eeyore)...and even some adults donned their capes and masks for the event! The kids all had a good time checking out the Halloween-themed events (including a Zombie stress shoot and a Halloween cupcake walk), and most certainly enjoyed Trunk-or-Treating. Thought it took Conner quite a while to grasp the concept that the candy had to go in his "punkin" and that he wasn't going to eat each piece as it was handed to him! It was really cute though and we are looking forward to Trick-or-Treating in our neighborhood this week. I'm holding off on posting a picture just yet (mostly because I didn't get a great one of Conner by himself)...but I will tell you that our little Superman is pretty much the cutest thing. Ever. On the face of the planet.

On Saturday we made the brave journey to Toys r Us to buy Conner's birthday gift, since his party is this weekend! I say brave because I'm pretty sure most parents walk out of that place in a daze from the massive amounts of toys everywhere...and for us, a very upset toddler who was mad he couldn't take the big display train table, and all of it's trains, with us. Seriously, you would have thought the world was ending with how upset he was. Little does the dude know, Mommy and Daddy will be presenting him with a super awesome set of Thomas the Train wooden tracks for his birthday. This kid loves Thomas...I foresee a very excited toddler in my future!

Sundays are always our errands day. Conner was in a mood again yesterday (seriously, these two year molars are killing both of us), so Derek and I agreed that our usual family trip to the commissary would probably not end well with a grouchy kiddo on our hands. So Derek hung home with the dude and I headed out (with a binder full of coupons, of course) and food shopped. When I got home, Derek decided to get some stuff done around the house and since Conner was napping I took the opportunity to give myself a sweet Halloween mani...

For those curious, the black is Black Lingerie by Revlon, the orange is a sugar-coat type polish (no color name) by Julie G and the glitter is Rainbow in the Skylie from Nicole by OPI. I did a base coat of OPI Natural Nail Base Coat and I use Seche Vite as my top coat. Also, the chevrons (which are awesome) are vinyl nail stickers from Etsy. This look was easier than you'd think!

Looking ahead, this week is going to require coffee. And lots of it. In addition to the usual daily stuff I have going on, I'll be crafting and party prepping...and prepping for Derek's parents to arrive on Friday. So I've got banners to make, favors to put together, supply shopping to do (hello, Michaels and Dollar Tree...oh, and Costco. Love Costco), a house to clean and an entire guest bedroom to finally unpack and de-clutter (there's always that one room!). Whew! But it'll all be worth it, and I'm hoping to get ahead of the game early so I'm not losing my mind and asking "what the heck was I thinking??" By the end of the week.

I hope you all had a great weekend, and here's to a great week! Stay tuned as later this week I'll share some crafting and of course a recipe on What's Cooking Wednesday!
