Disco Ball Costume | Oh Happy Day!

While our Halloween costumes are getting their final touches, I have been enjoying seeing ideas for fun costumes floating around the internets (mainly on Pinterest). Per usual, Jordan over at Oh Happy Day has great DIY costume ideas, including this awesome disco ball costume. Isn’t this so fun? I think this would be so great for a little one (who could walk)! Maybe next year Eloise. Anyone else excited to dress up for Halloween?

If you know me very well, you know that I am not a backpack girl. Pretty much not ever. As a kid, the first few years of grade school, & a few times in law school, but really I prefer a tote or shoulder bag. I even traded my beloved diaper bag to this tote bag with this insert a few months ago because it felt more “me.” So color me surprised when I started thinking I maybe wanted a backpack (for my “purse” and diaper bag). Seriously, am I feeling okay? I hate to jump on-board something that is SO trendy (backpacks are all the rage these days, apparently) but since they are on-trend, it means there is a ton of selection. And look at that beautiful backpack! The color is gorgeous & I love that it doesn’t look like a backpack. So don’t be surprised if you see me donning this on my back as I chase Eloise down the street (since she is officially walking all over the place!).

{three} not being a photographer.

Last weekend when we went out to Orcas Island, I realized at the ferry terminal (when Aaron & Eloise were having the best time together!) that we didn’t pack our SLR camera. At first I was really sad. What opportunities I/we would miss to take “really good” pictures of our weekend & the wedding. But Aaron & I decided pretty quickly that it felt really good to not have the weight of the camera (literally & figuratively). It was freeing not to feel pressure to take really good pictures. We both really engaged with Eloise & Colt (who was in from out of town) over the weekend, & really enjoyed the wedding without feeling like we had to capture any special moment. After all, the bride & groom had paid someone (a professional!) to photograph the wedding. While I do wish we had gotten a few more pictures, I am really glad in the end that we didn’t bring our big camera to weigh us down. It was like our version of unplugging.
