Happy Halloween!

I am so behind on blog posts but did want to share some pics of our family in costume!

We dressed as characters from Ava's favorite show "Wo Gabba Gab" as she has called it since she was 1.
(Yo Gabba Gabba for those of you who have not yet discovered the wonderfulness that is this cartoon. HA!!)
Ava got plenty of wear out of her costume this year. I am so glad for that, even though it only cost me about $35 from head to toe (and that is good for me. I stink at bargaining) and the tunic and pants can be worn any day out of the year so that is a bonus!!


And just how is it possible for a 2 year old to already have this much attitude? It scares me sometimes.

She had a blast with all of the Halloween festivities the past two weeks. We enjoyed our fair share of parties, play groups, festivals, trunk or treats, trick or treats, Thriller dances, and much more. To say I am Halloweened out would most likely be an understatement.
But this little cutie REALLY got into it all tonight while trick or treating!

She LOVED going door to door. We went through a few streets in our neighborhood and the weather was PERFECT this evening!
She told us over and over "Thanks you mommy. Thanks you daddy." She was having the time of her life.


Aaron was a stickler about her not walking in people's grass, so she was walking so carefully on the sidewalks and paths.

(see her not stepping in the grass? ha!!)
She would say over and over "don't step in the grass" and she made sure to tell every person thanks you for candy.
My child may cop a serious 'tude from time to time (okay A LOT of the time) but I am so proud of her manners.
This picture just makes me giggle.

She was petting this man's ghost lights. Ha!! She was not afraid of ANYTHING this Halloween. In fact, she was totally intrigued by all the scary stuff. The girl has no fear. Whatsoever!
Inside a "haunted house" (it was a blowup one).

We hope you and your little goblins had a happy halloween as well!

Pumpkin Patchin

We had a very busy week filled with all things fall and Halloween. This time of year is so exciting, for young and old alike! ;)
We went to the pumpkin patch on Thursday (I think??) with our friends Angie and Hayden, and Britni, Rilan, and Zoey.
This pumpkin patch was so cool!!
When you first walked in, they had wood cutouts of all kinds of characters in this one area.

AVA WAS IN CHARACTER HEAVEN!!


Don't you love how she stood right on top of them to pose? Haha! Crazy girl.
She LOVED Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs the best of all!



Sidenote:I put her in the same smocked Halloween dress she wore last year.

Just a tad shorter, but still just as cute!


This is a funny one of Ava and I in the pumpkin head cutouts.


Next was the bouncehouses and the kids got worn out from bouncing and sliding!



And here is little Zoey hanging out being too cute for words...



If you can tell by Ava's littel red cheeks, it was super hot this day. The moms were DRAGGING by the end of it all. We went on a hay ride, ate some snacks, and chatted for a bit before we hit the road. All in all though, it was super fun... OH! And it was FREE! Didn't cost us a dime. I love "free field trips".
Thanks again for inviting us Angie! We had a great day.

Lime and Lilac Nursery

Today's room being featured on Kelly's Korner "Show Us Your Life" is Nursery/Children's Room. So I decided to play along since this is such a fun one for me.
Our house is nothing fancy at all and is basically a "starter home" for lack of better words to describe it. We had it built when we got married and although it has been great for us during the first few years of our life, we are ready to move into a home with a little more space and "character" as I like to say. Now if only it would sell...
Anyway, my favorite room in our home is definitely Ava's bedroom/nursery! I just love it and had so much fun decorating it. It's always the cleanest room in the house and I still like to go in there and just sit and admire how cute it is.

So, come on in to Ava's room...


Here is the view of her room from the hallway.

I love the black chandelier and silk curtains. It fancies it up a bit in my opinion.
The black furniture was what I wanted from the very beginning of my pregnancy. We got it from Babies R Us.
The cheetah chair was in our bedroom but I recently moved it in her room just because it made it go from "baby" to "girly" a bit for me. And because let's face it...we are lacking in the space department at the moment and it freed up some space elsewhere.

A friend and I painted those stripes on the wall and although they were a booger to do, I am proud of the way they turned out:) Painter's tape does wonders!!

Here is her crib. Yes, I know what you are thinking...haha! Let me explain.

The crib tent. It was the only way to go for us. Ava decided at about 15 months that staying in her crib was for the birds. We put her in a pack n play and oddly enough she couldn't climb out of that...for about a month. Then she figured out that manuever as well. So, I heard about the crib tent and it sounded horrible to me. But we were at a loss and I was NOT about to transition her into a toddler bed.
We call this her "Jerry Jones Dome". Haha! And she never has minded it at all.
We plan on keeping her caged up in this Dome for at least 5 more years.
HA I WISH!!
I love the letters above her crib. Got them online somewhere and they match the paint on her walls perfectly!
Her bedding came from Pottery Barn.

Here is her dresser wall where we STILL use her changing pad. We don't do well with changes I guess. I'm so glad we got this rather than a changing table for this very reason!

And all of her bows. This is the perk of having a mom that makes bows I guess.


I added our baby (hospital) pics when I first decorated and intended on adding Ava's hospital picture as well. I still plan to get around to that. Haha!


Ava's closet. It's pretty ridiculous, I know.

The bottom cubbies have her puzzles, books, legos, and lincoln logs and she loves to go in there and play. I guess because it's a change of scenery at times?

I always leave a plastic tub on top of the cubbies shoved in her closet for clothes she grows out of. I love it because sometimes I will try something on her and all of a sudden it no longer fits. Instead of having a stash in some corner, I just add it to the tub. When it gets full I label the tub with the size range, put it up in the attic, and add another tub in its place. Voila! No hassel closet cleaning!!


Ava says thanks for visiting her room!

Model MONDAY!

This blog has been on the back burner with all of the orders coming in, sickness, busyness, and just life in general. So please forgive me!
I think it's time for a much overdue Model Monday post...

Meet Lauren and Rachel!
Two adorable Texas cuties.






I love making things for these two sisters!!

Our October

I can't believe this month is already to the halfway mark. Where is October going? And why so fast?
We have been so busy with the business, and I've had tons of Dr appts (more on that later) and in between we have had lots of fun!
We have gone to fall festivals...

(Ava got her first face paint and I've never seen the kid sit so still in her life!)

We've already done a little dressing up (not her real halloween costume. this was just one of her princess dresses we wore for fun) and trick or treating...

-Poor babe was so sick this day and I thought it was just allergies.


We made mini caramel apples...
(and NO the stove was not on in this picture)


And we've painted pumpkins with friends!





All in all, minus the sickness Ava had this week (strep throat) I'd say she hasn't missed out on any fun! I just love the holidays that much more with a toddler. It's so much fun to be a kid again with her!!



SheShe Made
My Photo
Ft. Worth, Texas
After having my girly girl in April of 08, and spending oodles of money on one of a kind boutique, monogrammed clothing (with hairbows to match), I decided it was time to learn this trade myself before I went broke! I learned how to sew, embroider, and make hairbows in a matter of 3 months. What started as a hobby has turned into a dream come true. I quit my job as a teacher and now work from home when the little one sleeps. My life as a mommy and a boutique clothing designer/manufacturer/monogrammer is truly the best of both worlds!! I have big dreams for the future of my family and the future of SheShe Made. Thanks for joining me as I blog about the journey. Let me know if there is a bow or outfit you'd like custom made for you! Email me at sheshebows@yahoo.com and thanks for stopping by!
