Weekend Outfit, Being a Stepmom and Fall Activities

Monday, October 12, 2015

Weekend festivities are always so fun, and this weekend was an extra long one for us, for Emily and I anyway, Jose has to work today. It's Columbus Day, you know, Christopher Columbus sailed the ocean blue in 1492. When I taught kindergarten I taught my kids this poem around this time while we learned about Christopher Columbus. We won't get into any more History than this... 

Moving on... Let's start by talking about my outfit on Friday, and this fabulous photo I found online about step moms.

Coat, Dress, Booties

I of course failed and didn't get a good photo of myself wearing it, but thought it was too pretty to not show you. I wore this Old Navy dress, these booties from Nordstrom and this trench coat from Coach  Jose gifted me during our Florida trip last year. 

Ok, this photo, pretty powerful words, in my opinion. I'm not just a step mom. I've been thinking of devoting a post just on being a step mom. Would you guys like to read about that? Let me know if you would and if you have questions. 

One of our favorite things about Fall is going to all of the Fall activities in the Boston area, and decorating our front lawn, see vlog here.  We have gone to the Topsfield Fair but lately it has just been too difficult to get there. The traffic is crazy and we have just decided to do other things. Over the weekend we went to a small Fall Fair at the South Boston library. They had face painting, snacks, water play, painting pumpkins activities, Apple print painting and spooky story telling by Big Joe. It was loads of fun and Emily loved going after her dance class. See our vlog here. 

Finally, I love this last photo. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else than home with my loves. Emily asked for coloring pages so we looked online after she worked on her math work and printed out some pages for her and Jose to color.
