Fashion, Food, Desserts, being a 30-something mom is exciting!

I’m a loser

Well, I’m not specifically a loser, but my pumpkin is. This serves as a reminder to NOT have your husband take photographs:


The two on the left is my pumpkin (it also had a 3rd imprint that I didn’t add), and the one on the right is the one voted the “best” in what I feel was a popularity contest.

In a nutshell, I’m a sore loser. However, it’s painful to lose when it’s oh-so-obvious which one is superior AND followed the rules for the contest. Alas. I still had some fun this evening lighting it up:





Perhaps I should enter a proper pumpkin carving contest next year. Although, it’s messy and while I had fun, I must prefer to work with sugar. It’s not a gross slimy sticky!! But hey, for my first ever pumpkin carving, I impressed even myself.

But it totally stinks to lose to a lame pumpkin!! Yes, I’m trashing the winning pumpkin! If it had been amazing, I would be more gracious. But it was rather, well, just ordinary!!!! Curious to see how it does at the next round. (The winner) I am mainly bummed that Yoda will not be viewed by the world other than on here and my Instagram.

Oh well.

Today I wore this:


Cardigan: Ann Taylor
Dress: Kate Spade
Belt: Thrifted
Shoes: Kate Spade
Handbag: Kate Spade

And with that I shall curl up with a lovely book:


And nurse my wounded pride. I admit it, I’m a sore loser! I like to win. Okay, LOVE to win! It’s why I’m so good at eBay shopping!

On one last note, it’s November, and I am going to work towards being thankful for things. So today I am thankful that I had the time (and money!) to go get a massage for my aching shoulders and back. My goal is to be thankful for at least one thing a day (which is fairly easy if you think about it!!!!).

Until next time,

  1. I love your pumpkin! I stay away from carving though! And the book you are reading is amazing! I love Sophie Kinsella/Madeline Wickham!

    • Thanks! I like Sophie Kinsella too, for some strange reason (I really have NO idea why!) I really feel like Becky Bloomwood is my soul sister. Minus the credit card debt and overdrafts of course!

  2. Great post! 1) Your pumpkin looks awesome, I could never come up with something that cool if my life depended on it. 2) I love how much you love Kate Spade, your outfit is wonderful. 3) I’m always looking for new reading material, how is the book? Any other recommendations?

    • Thanks so much!!!

      Book was OK. Typical chick-lit.

      I’m reading a series on my Kindle, which is AMAZING. It’s the Robin Hood Hacker collection by Carolyn McCray. I had previously read her Betrayed Series. Controversial subjects, but very well written.

      I read super fast, so I’m always reading SOMETHING!! šŸ™‚

      Thanks for stopping by!
