Halloween & Wishful Wednesday...Costume


'I wish' .... I was six years old and going trick or treating, and my costume would be this cute little bumble bee!


I can see myself buzzing around all over the place! Isn't it adorable?! I absolutely love Halloween. From the day I was born it was always a big thing in our house. Each year I would pretend and be whatever my heart desired from a baby doll, to a pumpkin, Cleopatra, princess, M&M and the list goes on and on.

As an adult not much has changed. Both Christopher and I absolutely love Halloween. In fact, one of our first real outings with our friends was a Halloween party which also included our first picture. Sorry its at home in an album. Each year its been a big deal for us. For the last three years we have rented a place downtown along with one of our closest friends and thrown an amazing Halloween bash. It had become quite the tradition! But this year will be the first year we won't be hosting it :(. It's also our first Halloween in our new house so I am really looking forward to all the trick or treaters. Don't worry though we are still dressing up for a big party that night but its hosted by one of our best friends. The costumes are in the works as we speak but you will have to wait till Monday to see it! Below are some pictures from the previous years. Enjoy!

Non-Halloween related:
Brixie is getting bigger by the day. I am trying to take as many pics as I can now before she gets any bigger. She loves chasing Adrienne all over the house, playing with her ropes, crouching down like a cub to attack her prey (Adrienne), eat until her tummy is full, roll around in the grass and explore until her hearts content. And she sleeps like a baby!

Enjoying the nice weather outside. Yes she is sleeping.

Her big bowls! She will grow into them but for now they are so big that she puts her paws in her food bowl when she eats.


I keep trying to get pics of Adrienne as well but she isn't staying still quite long enough to snap the pic. This is usually when Brixie is about to pounce on her. She has been looking over her shoulder all week waiting for Brixie to come whip the corner. But last night was a huge success, they actually played with one another. It's the beginning of a beautiful friendship!

I hope that everyone is having a great week so far. Hard to believe it's only Wednesday!

Brixie is SOOOO cute! I can't wait to get another dog. Lily is enjoying being queen of the house though. We will probably try to get another dog once we buy a house:)
