I know I mentioned last week that I was going to show you all the fun West Elm knock off I did, but the kids got sick and I didn’t have enough time or energy to take photos.  I suck.  Next week.
So anywho, are you guys as excited as I am about stealing candy out of your kid’s treat bags tonight?!!  It’s like my favorite part of Halloween.  Of course seeing the little ones dressed up comes in at a close second!  This year is going to be cool since it’s Sam’s first. 
If you follow on Instagram you’ve already seen some sneak peaks of the kids’ costumes this year.  Sam is going to be a little blue beetle and Izzy is going as Carlita.  You may be asking yourself, “What/who the heck is Carlita???”.  She is a character in a Barbie Swan Lake movie that is a skunk by day and a sassy Latin nymph by night.  Yes.  That is what my daughter wanted to be for Halloween.  I know.  So we’re rollin with it and dressing her up as a skunk in a tutu.  She’s happy.  Momma’s happy.
And since it’s Halloween we’re taking a little trip down costume memory lane.



Hope you all have a safe and fun night, and that your little ones score the good candy!

    Gorgeous photos! Can't decide which one I liked best, but I do love Strawberry Shortcake. And yes, Barbie DVDs are always a good source for costume ideas! (Mother of 2 girls…and 1 boy.)
