I hope everyone had a fabulous Halloween this year! Tyler and I decided to be an Indian and a Cowboy at the last minute. We ended up putting the majority of our time into our dogs’ halloween costumes and because we’ve been having a Star Wars marathon, we decided to dress Nala up as Yoda, and Layla as Princess Leia.

If you love fringe as much as I do, this dress is perfect. It doubles as a costume and the material is unbelievably soft! I paired it with 3 different booties to give y’all some different options. I got the necklace several years ago at Charming Charlie, but I linked similar necklaces that they are currently selling! I made the headpiece myself in under 20 mins with less than $10 worth of supplies from Hobby Lobby.

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful Monday! 🙂

Small pumpkin

White paint

Gold paint

Pink paint

Yellow paint

Orange paint

Purple paint

small paint brush

medium paint brush


This is my first year painting a pumpkin instead of carving one! Definitely a little weird, though still just as fun. Tyler carved one so we still got to bake the yummy seeds. I decided to do a Sugar Skull, because I’m obsessed with them, and Dia de los Muertos is right around the corner, I thought why not! It ended up being easy, and turned out really cute. First, I painted the entire pumpkin white and did 3 coats to get it the way I liked it. Make sure you let it dry completely between each coat! Once the pumpkin dried, I painted two black circles for the eyes and did two coats for those. As that was drying, I painted a black heart upside down for the nose and a flower above the eyes, I did two coats for those as well. Then, I drew a line across the bottom for the mouth and did little humps for the teeth. Once I was done with that, I painted pink flowers inside the black circles and painted purple humps around the outside. Next, I drew swirls over the eyes with yellow paint and a heart between the eyes with 3 dots ascending in size. After that, I outline the mouth with orange paint and added some dots to the swirls and filled the hearts and dots. Finally I painted a black dot in the middle of each flower!

I was still feeling a little crafty, so I decided to paint the small pumpkin I got as well. For that one I painted two white coats of paint (make sure it drys completely between each coat). I then painted the stem gold, and did two coats for that as well. Finally I free handed our apartment number with the same gold paint, and did three coats for that. Super easy and adds a little sparkle to your front porch! Happy Halloween 🙂

WHAT YOU NEED: 

1 small pumpkin

1 medium pumpkin

1 large pumpkin

3 wooden letters that spell out “BOO”

black and orange spray paint

sliver glitter spray

hot glue gun

Hot glue gun: Walmart

All other supplies: Hobby Lobyy


This pumpkin craft is really easy and turns out super cute. First, I spray painted the small and large sized pumpkins black and the medium sized pumpkin orange. You don’t have to spray paint the medium pumpkin orange, but mine was a little marked up and dirty and the paint covers that right up. The black pumpkins were spray painted with 2 layers. While I let the pumpkins dry I painted each letter for the ‘BOO’ and did two layers on those as well. Once the pumpkins were dry, I sprayed all three with silver glitter. After all the letters and pumpkins were dry, I hot glued the letters to the pumpkins and then glued the pumpkins on top of each other. The hot glue gun I use is high temperature and works really well. It is less than $7 at Walmart. It doesn’t come with the glue sticks, so make sure you get those and that they are the right size for the gun.  Lastly, I painted the stem of the pumpkin on top gold for a little extra touch. Happy Halloween! 🙂

The other day we went to Owl Creek Pumpkin Patch and it was seriously the cutest! If you live in San Antonio or any surrounding areas, I highly recommend going. Their entry fees are cheap and they have just about everything. The entrance is kind of small with small signs so keep your eyes peeled. We passed it up the first time! They have a fun “potato launch” game when you first walk in, along with a couple other fun little games. There is a petting zoo, pony rides, hay and corn mazes, tractor rides, and, of course, tons of pumpkins. They even have a little tented area to paint the pumpkins. They also have cute set ups made out of hay (pictured above). They allow dogs, however you can’t use the petting zoo or hay rides if you bring them. I wore my FAVORITE jeans from H&M. Ladies, these jeans are not only the most comfy jeans ever, they are only 10 bucks. They literally go with everything. I love them so much, I have 2 pairs! The flannel I just got is from Forever 21 and it is seriously the softest. I can’t wait until it cools down here so I can wear it as a shirt.

Here is a link with the exact address and details for the pumpkin patch.
