I hope everyone has a fabulous Halloween! I will be roaming the streets with Minnie Mouse, Obi Wan Kenobi and a X Wing Fighter, using them to collect candy that I will later tell them is bad for them, take half away and keep hidden for me. Have fun and be safe!
As you all know, I am a HUGE fan of Rag and Bone. I am typically a fan of everything in their collection. That being said, every now and then a designer will throw a wrench in their collection and make me say, hmmmmm. That is exactly what happened when I saw this Rag and Bone Barswood Haircalf and Leather Coat.
Today my husband and I are celebrating our 10 year anniversary. It is so cliche but I honestly cannot believe how fast it has gone. I know to some 10 years is nothing, but considering my longest relationship up until my husband was 2 1/2 years, this is a long time! And if there is one thing I can say about marriage, it is F-ING HARD! Come on, for those of you who are married, you know this to be true. No one said that getting married was going to be a fairytale (well, except for Disney) and though there are some incredible moments, there are also moments when I have wanted to bash my head into a wall.
So what I have learned over the last 10 years? Here are just a few things:
1. I am not always right, even though I think I am.
2. Raising children can suck the life out of you and your marriage if you are not careful.
3. There is no greater feeling than having a husband who loves and adores you.
4. Compromise is not losing, but learning how to work together.
5. Men and women are VERY different, especially when it comes to shopping and sex.
6. You will love your spouse even more than you thought possible when you see them with your children.
7. Never show a new purchase to your husband until you are wearing it. It will be harder for him to get mad about the purchase. This is especially true if it is tight, short or low cut.
8. Your lowest moments together will bring you closer.
9. It is possible to love someone but hate them at the same time.
10. Marriage is worth fighting for.
Happy Anniversary Hubby! It has been an incredible ride thus far and I am looking forward to the next 10 years!

This past Sunday we made our annual trip to Tanaka Farms to pick out our pumpkins. We have been doing this every year since our oldest was one and I am obsessed with this place. What is better than spending a Fall afternoon picking pumpkins, feeding animals, running through a corn maze, riding on a tractor and grabbing some fresh produce? Here are some pictures from our day…
If you haven’t heard of Erin Condren, you are missing out. I absolutely adore all the personlized stationary, gifts, calendars, etc. that she offers on her website. Not only that, but I love that she was a stay at home mother of twins who came up with an idea and ran with it. Her products are fabulous and have been featured on Ellen and The Rachel Ray Show, along with magazines such as Lucky, US Weekly and People. They make amazing gifts for friends, teachers, family or perhaps, yourself.
Today on Plum District, you can purchase a $50 certificate to Erin Condren for only $25 (click here)!! Such great deal and a fabulous way to begin Christmas shopping. To help you pick some items out, here are some of my favorite items that I use consistently and continue to re-order.

If you are anything like me, you are already obsessing over your Christmas/Holiday card. I always like to send out the “perfect” card yet have the hardest time getting the “perfect” picture. I obviously have to look good in the picture or it is not going out (you are saying I am vain right now but you do the same thing). And now is the time to start thinking about that picture because we all get our cards out after Thanksgiving right??? (Can you see me laughing at myself?)
I became a major fan of Frye boots back in 2005 when I made my first purchase of the Harness boot.
Many of you may have already seen this but for some reason I hadn’t. My friend pointed this video out to me and it is a perfect example of why women should never compare themselves to what they see in magazines.
