pumpkin shakes, costumes, memory books, and lunch beats

1. Does your McDonald’s have pumpkin shakes?? We discovered these when we were driving from Utah to Montana for my sister’s wedding. They are d.i.v.i.n.i.t.y. The pumpkin-spice flavoring is perfect, it’s creamy, cold, I want one NOW, but do you think McDonald’s in Virginia have them? No ma’am. At least not in these parts. I am so jealous if your McD’s has them. Go have one for me. Or make one from the recipe on Our Best Bites.



2.  Are your costumes all ready? If they’re not, it’s all good. I saw this link to Parents Magazine on A Bushel and a Peck of Fun and they have some fantastic no-sew ideas. costume ideas



3. I cannot tell you how much I love this idea of a one line a day memory book that Camille @ Simplify shared. I try to write down cute things my kids say on magnetic notepad on the fridge, but somehow the paper gets taken off, and then I try to safely stash it, and am sometimes successful, but I love this idea of having it in a simple book. One line a day….I so want to do this. I’ll let you know how it goes.

4. We also are in love with this video my sil Jamie took. What if you sneaked the video camera out during an ordinary lunch with your kids, turned on a good beat, and just recorded? Kids love watching stuff like this, especially when it’s them or their adorable cousins. It’s my tantrum diverter at the moment: “let’s go watch Lucy and Bobo!” :)
Have a great weekend~

  4. Thanks for sharing! I love the lunch beats video - it actually had me laughing out loud. I am not a mother but one day will be. There are so many things to be scared of when thinking about having little ones but this video reminds me that all the scary parts will be worth it.

  5. I love shakes! I need to stop by a McDonalds and see if they have it here. Also, I am loving the idea of "one line a day". I've attempted to keep a journal, but all those lines makes me feel like I have to write a long paragraphy. I like how it is broken down in this book! Thanks!

  10. Love the journal idea.....JUST ordered one…thanks for sharing the link! I use to be great about keeping a journal but can't seem to keep up with one now. Maybe a thought a day would help! What a great gift idea too! I like how she keeps her out so it’s in eye sight. Humm they may keep me from writing my true thoughts though. ;o)
    I'll have to share her link on facebook in case anyone else wants to give it a try.

    Uh those pumpkin shakes sound sinful! I'll have to see if we have them in Texas. :o)

  11. I think we'll be seeing Bobo on Dancing with the Stars someday. He's got a serious vibe going on there. :) So cute!


    Never heard of pumpkin spice shakes, which is probably a good thing. I am a SUCKER for anything pumpkin. In these days of Halloween candy and my all-time favorite, candy corn, I don't one more temptation. I yield too much!!

    Hope y'all have a WONDERFUL weekend!

  13. You have a Bobo in the family?? That's what my girls call my sister. :)

    I am going to have to see if our McDonalds have the pumpkin shake...probably not, but it's worth investigating! ;)

    Any kind of shakes are good to me! The kids are so cute! I love that shoulder move at the beginning!! Now, I'm saying something about myself here (mainly that most of the music I listen to was recorded decades ago) but what was that song?

  17. That video is so adorable! Made me smile. :)

  18. 1) no, I do not have pumpkin shakes in my area. What is WRONG? Why create so much wonderful deliciousness and not share it with the entire country?
    2) I love the rubik's cube costume! Those are great ideas - and I love that none of them are scary.

    P.S. I'm hosting a Marc Jacobs jewelry give away - I hope you'll stop by! http://sfair.blogspot.com/2010/10/marc-jacobs-give-away.html

  21. That video was hilarious! And just think how precious it'll be in a couple years when she can hardly remember how little they used to be!

    Several years ago when my kids were much smaller we were sitting in the van at Sonic and What is Love? came on. I looked back and they were all bobbing their heads just like that SNL skit. I so wished I had a video camera!

  25. Oh my gosh, this was my reality 8 years ago. It takes me right back when my girls were this age, and my little one would always be looking at her sister the same way.

    Thanks for sharing! It's amazing how you can forget these special random moments!

  26. Thanks for posting about the One Line a Day book. I ordered two. One for my daughter away at college and one for her boyfriend. I thought it might be fun for them to do in their early days of dating.
