Insta September

September was a busy month for us.  Here is what we were up to through Instagram pictures.  Follow along on Instagram here.

We spent the last day of summer poolside:Labor Day Pool Party

Even though it was 90 degrees outside we got cozy with a pumpkin spiced candle:

I made over an Ikea Rast Dresser for Ella’s nightstand:

We got to work on some other home projects including dreaming up a gallery wall for the media room:

This is a girl after my own heart.  She adores crafting and will color, cut, paste, and create all day long:


Fun evening at the park after coming home restless from school:


Our friend, Capri, celebrated her birthday with a Frozen party.

We ate lots of yummy meals during our Advocare 24 Day Challenge:

In the Documenting Life Challenge we prompted mamas to document their child ready for school.  I shared my boys walking to the bus stop:

I finally got my hair done for the Influence Conference.  I realized I hadn’t had my hair colored since last December and cut since March.  So silly since my sister is my stylist.


We made Fruit Loop necklaces in preparation for movie night:

We taught 15 new mamas how to use their cameras how to take better pictures of their kids in our Mamarazzi of Tulsa workshop:

Bought some mums for the front porch (and finally broke down and got some heirloom pumpkins as well):


Another prompt for Documenting Life was to capture your child with their favorite book.  Hudson and I read the Cat and the Hat:

While taking 5 minutes for myself to shower I found my little artist had put on her swimsuit and started painting with water and sidewalk chalk:

We added a 3rd layer to our hallway gallery wall.  Eventually I would love it to go from floor to ceiling:

I picked up this darling jute pumpkin from Target.  I love it paired with my DIY chalkboard monogram pumpkin:
