What a week! Hurricane Matthew blew in, leaving much destruction in its path, but the blessing of getting to spend so much extra time with family was definitely needed! Hope you enjoy our week in (a slew of, and I do mean slew of) pictures…
The first day we arrived, the weather was perfect! A little chill in the air, perfect for fall. My mom, two of my sisters and I decided to take the kids to a pumpkin patch.
Carried along my monogrammed tote. I love pulling it out every year for the fall season.
Enjoyed lots of snuggles with my sweet nephews throughout the weekend! Isn’t it funny how two sisters can have little boys that look so different? Both are just as sweet and cute as they can be.
I literally carried them around the petting zoo like this for at least ten minutes. They can’t walk yet, so I was happy to help! Plus, my sister took such great pics of my kids!
They honestly could’ve hung out with those animals all day. We picked the perfect time to go, too. Since the kids were out of school because of Hurricane Matthew, all the other children were in school and a field trip had just left.
Had I known we’d be going to the pumpkin patch, I would’ve dressed them in their cute fall outfits, but I clearly wasn’t thinking as I was packing to evacuate the day before. And they could’ve cared less.
What I Wore
On Thursday, my dad and his five son-in-law’s and my youngest sister’s boyfriend all had a trip planned to head to the beach for the weekend. Because of Matthew, they had to relocate to the mountains, but I don’t think they minded too much.
My three sisters that live in town hung out the entire weekend. We had the best time, but missed the other two! // If you haven’t played Splash yet, you must get it. One of our current favorites!
The boys on their Highland Brewery Tour.
The rain finally made its way up to us on Friday. We were pretty much shut-ins for the next two days, but that always makes for fun ways to entertain ourselves. Wheeler and Logan made two of these and were soooo proud of themselves.
Growing up I used to do so many crossword puzzles. My parents used to make copies of the newspaper crossword so we could all have our own. When we visit, they still do it, and my mom still reads the newspaper every single morning. My mom and dad (and whoever is visiting) also makes copies of the Sudoku and they race to see who can finish it first. My dad usually wins, but Lanier beat him once this past week. // Take 25% off my super soft cardigan with code: MAINEVENT16.
We’re clearly a family that loves our games. This particular week we played Spades and Hearts the most. When it’s a bunch of us, we play ‘Celebrity’ which is a charades game we love! It always has a rolling!
On Sunday, we headed to church. Of course it was in the mid-50s and I hadn’t packed coats for the kids, but they didn’t seem to mind. It quickly warmed up, which was so nice.
What I Wore
They love performing!
Shorts (25% off with code: MAINEVENT16)
Tried the new Starbucks Chile Mocha today. It’s so good! Chocolately with just a hint of spiciness!We found out we lost power on Friday evening and it didn’t come on until Sunday evening. We headed back home on Monday. I was anxious to get back, but the kids would’ve stayed another week! We came home to fall weather and I’m so excited about it. Time to pull out all the little sweater and vests! // Cat Sweatshirt // Scarf (only $10 with code: THANKYOU ) // Sunnies

I’ve loved wearing this animal print shirtdress (and my sunnies) this season, and this dress is a favorite this fall, as well. Even these wedges are part of the sale. Would look pair with the purple in this dress. So much marked down, and it’s so early in the season. A great time to take advantage of some great deals!
