Fall Basics and a Halloween Recap

As promised, here are Jona's and my Halloween costumes from Friday. Other than the accessories, I worked with what was already in our closets. Halloween's just not something I like spending a bunch of money on. (Years later when Jona insists on being Spiderman, I may sing a different tune...)


Rosie the Riveter / Where's Waldo? 

Jona even did a little trick-or-treating with my best friend's 2-year-old Addie, who was a unicorn this year. It was pretty chilly out, but he happily let us lug him around from house to house, and although "trick or treat" proved to be too much, he did manage a "thank you" or two. 

Otherwise, this weekend was pretty low key. We tried a new wrap shop for lunch (Longboards, yum!) and visited a favorite Mexican restaurant for dinner (Ponak's). Football was on the TV (go K-State!) and lots of leftover Halloween candy was consumed. Here's what I wore for the eating/football watching Saturday. 




Gray sweater: Gap / cargo vest: Old Navy (similar) / skinny jeans: Gap / necklace: Etsy / boots: MIA (similar) / oddly carved pumpkin on my porch: c/o neighborhood squirrels

  1. I still just adore his costume! SO fun! We only did two grandparent visits for our trick or treating this year. We'll try more next weekend. I also love your IM look, I haven't pulled out my vest like that in awhile, I think I'll have to do so this week.

  2. Thanks Beth! We only did the trick or treating thing since my friend's little one is at the age where she's starting to love stuff like that. She was a little unsure, but then when she figured out there was candy at each house she was all aboard, haha!

  7. The costumes are so cute! So creative on Jona's - I love the hat especially... Hendrik has the same one :) That's a perfect fall weekend outfit - and look how long your hair's getting!

  8. Thanks! It's getting there, slowly but surely! And the hat/mittens set is so cute, but I accidentally bought the wrong size for Jona. The hat is fine, he's always had an above-average sized noggin, but the mittens could each fit about 3 of his hands. Oops!

  9. Well, he still doesn't totally get the concept. He says thank you when we give him stuff AND when he hands stuff to us. I think he thinks it means "handing stuff over" or something :)
    I'm loving all these new words and phrases. Babies are such little sponges!
