Ultimate Bad Blogger

So I have been totally MIA
but I do have a good excuse
We finally moved into our new house!!!

Isn't she beautiful?!?
We love it here!

My favorite part is the yard
oh and my sweet walk-in closet
(that I have all to myself - Woohooo!!!)

(I promise to show pics soon, lots of before and afters)

We  I have been super busy
but I will say, T has been busy in the yard!

I walked out the other day and he was literally in a tree

Good grief

but as you can see, he was happy as a lark!
It made my heart happy!

We have been loving fall, too
and decorating our new place for Halloween
The other night we got Boo'd

Do y'all play this game in your neighborhood?
If not, you should!  It's such a fun way for adults to get involved in Halloween!
Somebody got us so good 
People banging on my door at 11 pm tend to freak me out, but they did...

leave us...
 some sweet treats!

Cute, right?!?

Oh, I love Halloween!

Tonight we had tons of trick-or-treaters!
A lady at the courthouse told me today - "are you ready for tonight?  you're going to have lots of trick-or-treaters in your neighborhood!"

I thought, yeah I've got plenty

Um not so much, I should have doubled that!
I was out of candy within the first hour or so!

I think the kids were attracted to my gigantic pumpkin?
Yeah, I live in the burbs and I have a giant blow up pumpkin
all I need now is a minivan and 3 kids

 I sort of love it though!

Hope you are all doing great!  I'm so ready to catch up on all I've missed this past month!
Happppy Halloweeeeen!!!

Glad to see you back! Your house is beautiful and I can't wait to see what you've done with the inside. :)

Tess said...

Your house? Oh, My, Gawwwwd is it cute! You've got to show us what you've done with it inside.

P.S. Your friends really outdid themselves in the Boo game - those are the kind of treat I want to get!

So great to catch up with what's been going on in your life! Trust me -- I know how much time and effort a new house takes. So worth it, though. Can't wait to see more pics!

Love the BOO game!! Precious home to create precious memories! Congrats to you both!

Shannon said...

LOVE your new house! That porch! I am ever so jealous. I've never seen the Boo game before. Will have to force it on my neighbors next year!

JMW said...

Congrats on the house - it's lovely! I've heard of the "Boo'ed" concept, but we don't do it in our neighborhood. It seems like such a fun idea, though, esecially if you get such treats as Maker's Mark and wine! Enjoy the new home!

Your new house looks wonderful. Moving is always a mix of lots and lots of hard work and lots nad lots of excitement at all the fun that will happen in the new house. Wishing you more fun and less hard work!

So glad you're back! Congrats on your cute new house!

Tessa said...

yay, katie! you're alive!! congratulations!! a pretty red front door, a huge front porch, and a beautiful yard - what's not to love. i bet you already have a spot picked out for the Christmas tree too. i know you do!! :) we've been booed and we've been the booers. This year was charlie's first time helping to ring the bell and run (at a much more respectable hour I should say) . we all dressed in black and were very stealth like. i'm sad october is over. boo. (as in boo-hoo!). glad you are back!! xo, Tessa

Ashley Slater said...

oh my gosh, congratulations on the new home! I am pretty jealous! I can' wait until we are done with this traveling thing so we can finally settle down somewhere! and you had trick or treaters! ughhh, we didn't hear or see ONE kid where we are. sad.

love the pics of your husband in the tree pruning! haha that is one thing my husband and I talk about a lot- having a yard and doing YARD work. the fact that we are excited about it is a little silly but whatever!

oh, and love your "boo", you got good stuff!
