My Life In Pictures: November 1 – 15, 2016

Over the past six months or so, twice a month I share my Instagram pictures since I can’t seem to find time to write! I call it My Life In Pictures. You can see all of my previous posts here.

Here’s what we’ve been up to this November…


My little bookworm wanted me to preorder the newest Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Double Down. Of course he finished it really fast, and was so bummed that now he has to wait a year for the next one. I explained to him that’s the problem that people who love to read always face – we can’t wait to finish a book, but after we finish it, we don’t want it to end. Ethan’s very first book review via a vlog coming soon!


Lila may be a little OCD – she separated all of her candy! I let it sit on the counter for a couple of days…she was not happy to come home from school and find it all back in the candy bowl. Are you ready to get rid of your candy? I shared 10 ways to get rid of Halloween candy.


I got this amazing Moscow Mule gift set as a gift from I loved their gift sets so much that I became an affiliate! They’ve got gifts for everybody in your life….from coworkers to friends and family. Whether you know somebody well or not, you’ll find a gift for them. Trust me.

My Lila wants to be a chef when she grows up, and she’s learning how to use a chef knife! My favorite is Rachael Ray’s Santoku Knife and I actually have the whole set. She hasn’t cut herself yet because I’m watching her like a hawk.


Jason started playing soccer on a co-ed team. It’s a blast to watch, and the kids are having fun cheering him on.


I just finished reading Victoria by Daisy Goodwin and I was left craving more! If you’re interested, you can read my review of the bookDaisy Goodwin has several other historical fiction novels, and I can’t wait to dive into The American Heiress next.
