Lucy's First Haircut

Today, we took Lucy to get her first haircut...







Lucy got to lounge in a green Lamborghini while she had her hair cut. M was super jealous. :)

Practicing for Halloween

We got Lucy's Halloween costume this week. She loves it so much that she never wants to take it off...


Last year, she was a pumpkin (a very adorable pumpkin) and was too young to really get excited or care about being in costume. This year, my mom will be coming for a visit, which will be fun and so special, and Lucy is old enough to enjoy many of the festivities. When we asked her what she would like to dress up as, we were already 100% sure what her answer would be.


Her costume even has a little tail :)

While we won't be trick-or-treating, the Denver Public Library has a fun, little party for young kids, where they can wear their costumes and read stories, do arts and crafts, etc. It sounds like a fun (free) alternative to running around the neighborhood collecting candy that she won't even be able to eat. She would probably rather have apples and grapes (her new faves) than candy anyway.

Weekend Get-Away

This past weekend, we went to New Mexico for a little mini get-away. M was working, but I got to relax the whole time and hang out with Lucy girl. We were in the woods and hills of New Mexico (I didn't know NM had woods and hills... I thought it was all desert!), and the leaves were changing color. It was beautiful!


Lucy and I played outside non-stop! She had so much fun exploring!


While we were there, we were also able to catch up with some old friends, including Anna and Ben (who have known me since I was 16!) and their sweet little baby, Elijah. Elijah (pictured above) is only 3 weeks old and so tiny! I've almost forgotten what it feels like to hold such a tiny baby. Lucy was fascinated by him for about five seconds, and then she ran off to play with her "big kid" friends.


It was so wonderful to get out of the city and enjoy the beautiful, fall weather - even if it was just for a weekend.

Our Home: Master Bedroom

It isn't really a Master Bedroom... both bedrooms are the same size. But I feel fancy calling it that.






This is the only room in the house that doesn't feel quite "finished" to me. I feel like I need more warmth and texture in here, maybe something up on the wall? It feels a little blah to me right now. At least it's calm and serene, which is what I like in a bedroom.


That finishes up the home tour! I won't show you the bathroom because who wants to see a bathroom? But we do have one. So come see us :)


Our Home: Lucy's Room

Today, I get to show you Lucy's room, which is my favorite room in our house...








I think Lucy's a fan, too.

Our Home: Dining / Kitchen

Today, I'm sharing pictures of our dining / kitchen area. Our kitchen is tiny, and pretty basic, so I didn't really see a point in sharing photos of just the kitchen. Also, I don't really feel like it reflects our style at all. I would change it if I could, but since we're renting, I can't. Oh well. It gets the job done.

Anyway, these pictures are mostly of the dining area, with a small peek into the kitchen...


Lucy agreed to make a cameo appearance.





Nothing fancy, but we enjoy cooking and eating in here. 


Next up, the bedrooms!
